This was a welcome change of pace in my musical inventory. Belgium’s Glints has been stuck inside, just like the rest of us, so he used his time to knock out a very topical 16 minute mixtape. Enjoy!
I have an expansive digital music library that was in absolute shambles thanks to iTunes metadata fuckery over the years. When the isolation period began in Texas I resolved that I’d use my free time to fix it file by file, folder by folder, and label by label so that it was accurate and correct. […]
I’ve pimped Amerigo Gazaway’s mash-up work for a few years. He has this unique ability to combine classic soul/jazz/RnB with old school hip-hop to make seamless works. Some of my past favorites are the Cool-Out Corner mix, Fela Soul the De La Soul & Fela Kuti collab and Mos Def & Marvin Gaye double albums. […]
No one is the world is doing better mash-up work than Amerigo Gazaway. The best part of all this fabulous effort? It’s fucking free. After amazing mash-ups of Mos Def/Marvin Gaye and UGK/BB King, he’s dropped a Common and Stevie Wonder work that’s got me movin’ in my chair. Get down on it y’all! AmerigoMusic.com […]
I was just revisiting this tune from the Luke Cage Soundtrack. It’s a big one.
Squirt, aka Aaron Wilkerson, was one of Dallas’ original junglists and one of the founding members of the 32 Degrees jungle crew (that I later joined) and was a huge influence on drum & bass culture in Dallas. Unfortunately he passed away on the 1st of April after a short illness. Squirt was talented, hilarious, […]
One of Manchester’s finest wordsmiths, Skittles, has just released his new video to accompany the release of Problematic on Propatop. If you like the tune you can grab it from Skittles Bandcamp Page
I’ve talked about Amerigo Gazaway’s many mash-up albums over the last few years and he’s dropped a new, summer-themed mix featuring a lot of those same tunes. Beats from Kool and The Gang, Prince, The Phracyde, Erykah Badu, and Dam Funk make the mix essential seamless summer listening.
Stray did a hip-hop-mash-up-drum-and-bassline mix for his new Paradise EP on Exit Records. It’s only 23 minutes old and what I’ve heard so far reminds me of leftfield head trip, but I’m still working my way through it. Most definitely worth a download and listen though.
That rowdy buncha Mancunian MCs and producers are back again with another LEVELZ crew production. I mentioned on Facebook that I have very little use for American rap and hip-hop these days. It’s become a shell of itself in recent years and they’ve more or less lost the plot. Most rappers take themselves entirely too […]
