MEGA TRIFE’s “THE BACKSPIN” – Official Music Video + “2095” New Album Out Now!!

Brockton, Massachusetts rapper Mega Trife presents the fresh Rose Glen-directed music video for “The Backspin”, the new single from 2095, his brand new  album produced entirely by his long-term partner Nonsense and featuring cuts from Statik Selektah and Rain!! Check it out here:

Trife has collaborated with M.O.P., Termanology, Nature, Von Pea, Blu and more. Trife and Nonsense’s last release was 2012’s Full Circle (click here to listen to “Anything You Heard About” featuring Termanology). Following Trife’s collaborative effort with Nonsense will be a solo album featuring production from Statik Selektah, Ski, and Khrysis. Trife says “The Backspin” was chosen as the lead single “because it encapsulates the entire essence of what 2095 is; hard rhymes over a classic breakbeat. Just because a beat may have an old school sound to it, doesn’t mean the lyrical content is or has to be old school as well””.

“2095” is out now & available here:

Grandad Wooley BARS

“Beats And Rhymes Syndrome/Change It Up” – Granddad Woolly – New Official Music Video + The Vanilla Tape Album Available Now!

Morning all!

Check it out: “Beats And Rhymes Syndrome/Change It Up”is the first video off Granddad Woolly’s new project “The Vanilla Tape” doing what he does best, dropping BARS! But, also deep within his words is a heavy amount of wisdom and wordplay that really explains what this song truly represents.

Also be sure to grab a copy of the full project, available for free download here:

“The Vanilla Tape is not an album nor is it a mixtape. It is a 30 minute original musical presentation piece. This project serves as a side project not related to Granddad Woolly’s storyline. It is rather a personal look at Granddad Woolly both directly and indirectly through song. The instrumentals are completely handled by UK producer Vanilla who brings quality amounts of soul, emotion, beauty and intensity through his sound. Granddad Woolly handles the lyrics and paints an amazing picture on the canvas provided by Vanilla. A must listen for any fan of not only hip hop but beautiful music in general”.

“Can’t Think” – New Single from Besatree – Out Now!!

Check out this simply stunning track from Besatree called “Can’t Think”!!

“Can’t Think” is a song about growing older and the wear and tear we as humans take in doing so… More specifically it’s about Besatree slowly losing his hearing… and his mind as a result. Probably the single most scary thought for any passionate musician or music lover. Really loved the overall result and message of this track and I’ve had it on prominent rotation since I first heard it.

“Katalyst Sessions Vol​.1​” – A Brand New Album from Wermonster – Out Now!

Berlin-based producer Wermonster recently dropped his latest project “Katalyst Sessions Vol.1 on Uncomfortable Beats!! Got to give it a good listen last week and I really enjoyed every moment..
Check it out here:

The Katalyst Sessions define the Uncomfortable Beats vision for Hip-Hop instrumentalism on a global level, and presents an artist whose production exemplifies the future beats movement.
Between 2010-2013, Wermonster embarked on an exploration into experimental beats in his Berlin studio, and Katalyst Sessions Vol.1 is a result of the choicest cuts. Each of the 28 tracks and skits on this fast-paced journey are short and hit solidly on point with no redundancy.
Wermonster manages to successfully traverse the fragile line of staying true to classic 90’s boom-bap, whilst generating questions and providing answers as to what the future holds for Hip-Hop instrumentalism.

Katalyst Sessions Vol.1 is available now on limited Cassette tape, and most online digital stores; You can grab the cassette right here:

Smokey Joe & the Kid

SMOKEY JOE & THE KID – The Game(Ep) – Out Now!!

Word up People!

Hope you’re having a good week so far and we’re gonna share some good tunes with you to make it even better…

I recently had the honour of checking out the new EP from Banzai Lab production duo Smokey Joe & The Kid called “The Game” and all I can say is WOW!! This EP is an incredible blend of multiple instruments, percussion, scratches and on point lyricism making up one hell of an EP that you simply can’t miss.
COVER_EP_RECTO
***
“In this project, Smokey Joe, Bordeaux’s main musical mafia head, and The Kid aka “Senbeï,” cheeky Parisian master of Turntablism, transport us back in time to the gangster run streets of 1930’s Chicago. These two gangsters mix Hip Hop and Electro with the groove and melodies of early 20th century Swing. Percussion solos played with scratches ,beats and melodies banged out on the MPC, everything is performed live.
***
A year after their acclaimed first album « Nasty Tricks » (Banzaï Lab – 2013), the most wanted gangsters of the electro Hip-Hop scene are back with a new EP “The Game”, recorded between Paris, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Smokey Joe & The Kid_Photo

Clearly Hip-Hop oriented, with samples still taken from traditional american music of early XXth century, Smokey Joe & The Kid took a trip to California to record 4 tracks, each powerful, captivating and overall, absolutely brilliant.

Smokey Joe & The Kid : « We wanted to step out of pure jazz and to get more into the roots of all modern music : the Blues. We drove a lot during our stay in California, and west American landscape fed our imaginary world, as much as the heat of Los Angeles’ streets.”

After collaborating on their first opus with Puppetmastaz, Lateef The Truthspeaker, or Youthstar (Chinese Man), the duo hired this time accomplices from the US West Coast : Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), NON Genetic (Shadowhuntaz) and The Procussions (Watch the making of the EP). Gift of Gab gives a conscious message on “Stay Awake” when NON tells all about his touring experiences “What goes on tour stays on tour” (Gifted Child). Finally, The Procussions end the EP with poetry on “Temptation”.

« The Game » is clearly in reference to the famous “Rap Game” of which they make a personal interpretation, finding there the game field of their old-fashioned megalomania.

THE LIVE PROJECT :

Since 2013, Smokey Joe & The Kid work with the VJ Miss Chemar to deliver a unique A/V Show that mixes old school movies and original pictures of the duo. The strong interaction with the audience makes this a fun, original and incredibly dynamic show”!

You can listen to the first single “Stay Awake” ft. The Gift of Gab and purchase your copy right here:
