“In 2012, B. DOLAN & BUDDY PEACE created “FILM THE POLICE,” a reworking of the N.W.A. classic “FUCK THE POLICE” that addressed citizens’ rights to film cops in the wake of the Oscar Grant shooting. The song caught fire during the wave of Occupy Wall St. protests that coincided with it’s release, developing a life of it’s own as a hashtag that traveled the world on the lips of protesters and activists resisting police brutality.
This year brings the release of HOUSE OF BEES 3, the latest in a series of mixtapes from B. Dolan & Buddy Peace, who have this time chosen to rework RICK ROSS and JAY-Z’s 2013 single “The Devil is A Lie” to tell the story of the real man behind a rapper’s name; that of drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross and his connection to the Iran-Contra scandal”.

HOUSE OF BEES VOL. 3 coming soon!!

Spacesuites

“Spacesuits” – LMNO, Moka Only & Mr. Brady – Brand New Self-Titled Album + “Speedy” – Music Video Out Now!

“Spacesuits”, the fresh new project from LMNO, Moka Only & Mr. Brady, produced by Jules Chaz is officially out today and you can grab yourself a copy right here!!!

“What happens when three veteran power houses LMNO from the mighty Visionaries crew, Moka Only with over 50 albums deep in the game, and musical work horse Mr Brady’s rawness let loose over madman producer extraordinaire Jules Chaz beats? You get the eagerly awaited project Spacesuits. Spacesuits came to light when Moka Only introduced Jules Chaz to Mr Brady a few years back via internet. Jules Chaz sent Mr Brady about 30 beats that He sat on trying to figure out what to do to them. “They were so raw, genius, and out of this world I wanted to approach them right,” Mr Brady said. One day LMNO came to record at Mr Brady’s studio, and he let him hear the beats. He flipped out and they immediately knocked out a couple of tracks that same day. After listening to them, they hit up Moka Only to do a feature for one of the tracks. The three of them sounded so good together, and they have so much history together from Battle Axe records in the past, it only made sense to asked Moka if he would be down to record the whole album with them. After all, Moka Only was the one to introduce them to Jules Chaz, so it made perfect sense. After listen to a few songs, and how out of this world they sounded, the name and the project Spacesuits took flight. There effortless cohesiveness is evident with Spacesuits. They bounce off one another, and jump in and verses like the veterans they are. Spacesuits shows their versatility and ability to adapt to Jules Chaz Zany production. With Spacesuits, Not only will you get raw lyrics and beats like the songs Speedy, and _meteor, but you will also get stories with songs like heist and _chicks, as well as a array of spaced out joints and interludes. So grab your moon boots and get ready for lift off because Spacesuits is ready to take off!”

Al'Tarba - Let the Ghosts Sing

“Let the Ghosts Sing” – Brand New Album from Al’Tarba + “Good Morning Rain” – New Official Music Video – Out Now!!!

Hey people!

I hope you are all doing well; I’m very please to announce that today, the one and only Al’Tarba releases his brand new and once again completely epic album, “Let the Ghosts Sing” and it’s officially available for purchase in a variety of format’s right here:
Adobe Photoshop PDFhttp://cd1d.com/en/album/let-the-ghosts-sing

“I had the opportunity to listen to the album over the weekend and once again I am completely taken back by the utterly awe inspiring production throughout the project. While maintaining the classic Al’Tarba feel this album is something completely fresh from the French multi-intrumentalist. The sound & feel of this album is exactly as the name say’s with a complete otherworldly eeriness that sticks with you throughout as well as beautiful analogue arrangements, classic instruments and samples to die for making this an undeniable must have for anyone who appreciates hip-hop instrumental music at its finest”.

Be sure to check out the music video for one of the tracks from the album, “Good Morning Rain”, right here:

“Let the Ghosts Sing could be the soundtrack for a Tim Burton movie, as we feel joy surrounded by death. Siberian Vengeance or Still Insomniac take us to a trip inside our own mind when Gangster & Rude Girls or My Vicious Side work as a carthasis, as we headbang our troubles away. That’s the strength of Al’Tarba and this opus, they bring us to an imaginary place where we face the nostalgia and spookiness of our childhood, while enjoying it as an adult”.

“Sami” – New Music Video from Nïats + “Antares” – New EP – Out Now!

Thought we could kick Monday off with something a little different…
Nïats just dropped this fresh new music video for his track “Sami”!!
Check it out here:
The track is lifted from his all new “Antares” EP available here:
Itunes > https://itunes.apple.com/fr/album/antares-ep/id922070353
Spotify > http://open.spotify.com/album/4kktpPBNWsgfkIlR4pJnYU
Deezer > http://www.deezer.com/album/8755917

“Nïats is musician and sound engineer, his music is inspired mainly by the world of movies, Fantasia, Coppola, David Lynch, Corto Maltese just to name few. He likes the blend of audio and visual. “Antares” is his first EP, its a blend of beats, sampling and composition that brings us into his multi-faceted imaginary universe.

Sometimes through ethereal soundscapes, sometimes thru heavy grooves he navigates in a universe of audio imagery”.


“Antares”  is beautifully weaved and put together, it navigates through mutiple styles and blends them, most of the time, well together.


Although this EP is quite different from what I usually listen to, I found that the blend of sounds and instrumentation very pleasing and did enjoy the project as a whole.

Willie Green - A Suite for Souled People

“A Suite For Souled People” – Brand New E.P. from Willie Green – Out Now!!

New York producer Willie Green just dropped his new E.P. called “A Suite For Souled People” focusing on and around the tragic events that happened in Ferguson, Missouri recently. It features Elucid, Curly Castro, and billy woods and is in our opinion, simply incredible. The powerful and emotive messages, and awe-inspiring production makes this a must have Project in 2014…
You can get your copy for free download right here:

“The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri (as well as Staten Island, Beavercreek, Ohio, and Los Angeles) have lifted a veil of comfortable ignorance across this country. The murder of Michael Brown, resultant cover up and egregious treatment of protesters has shown that the perception of Black people in America has changed little since the Civil Rights movement of the 1960’s. Americans live in a country where the oppressed are dehumanized and told to be quiet and gracious about their anger; and where the oppressors are harbored by our government and rewarded by our peers. Where the media warps facts to prove agendas against citizens and digital voices rush to play devil’s advocate to conceal their own bias. These are terrifying statements and not exaggerations. I’m no revolutionary. But I am someone who wants to look his children in the eyes and say when his country showed its worst, he did something”. – Paul “Willie Green” Womack, Sept. 15th, 2014
