A few weeks late to this but… Just ran across the new [easyazon_link identifier=”B073KPT9P6″ locale=”US” tag=”wells01-20″]Tyler, the Creator[/easyazon_link] track in Benji B’s radio show. Apparently, the new tune “OKRA” is a ‘throwaway song’ per the video’s YouTube page. Yet, it’s one of the best tracks I’ve heard this year. And the music video is equally delicious […]

Beats, rhymes, and pieces. That’s what you’ll hear from prolific musician Oddisee, a native of the Diamond District. He’s back again with his third release in a dozen months with The Iceberg, an album that sees him grapple with the issues related to culture, race, and politics.

20-year-old Scottish producer Sam Gellaitry is back with the beats on his new single ‘Jungle Waters,’ dropping on the Escapism III album this April.

The Peter Franks Group – Leaving This Place pt1

The Peter Franks Group is an instrumental and jazz beat collective from Bournemouth, England. The fresh and crisp flute-driven track ‘Leaving This Place’ is one of the standout tracks off the band’s album Days Past. ‘Inner Most’ is also a moody gem. “…A real timeless feel to this courtesy of the joint talents of Halsall, […]

Paul White – Maori Baby Junior

Paul White is back with some new music on an all new beat tape, Everything You’ve Forgotten. One of my favorite tracks ‘Maori Baby Junior,’ is the kind of downtempo goodness White is known for. If you dig it, peep ‘Running On A Rainy Day’ after the jump. “Shut the door. It’s going to be […]

Mz Boom Bap – Heard Em Say (ft. Curtis Roach)

Portuguese beat maker Mz Boom Bap links up with 17-year-old rapper Curtis Roach to produce an early 90s retro hip-hop track entitled ‘Heard Em Say.’ Anything that sounds remotely like Pete Rock, DJ Premier, or Illmatic in general, is music to my ears. “everything from the drum programming to the sample selection to the subtle […]
