jesse futerman: super basement ep & fuse the witches ep [download]

  • Jesse Futerman - Fuse The Witches EP cover
  • Out of the JusLikeMusic stables comes the new Jesse Futerman EP, but since the previous one is still up for free, let’s hit them both: “Super Basement EP“ and “Fuse The Witches EP“ are two packs filled with sweet laid-back downtempo beats.   Released on the 20th of June, 2011, “Super Basement EP” was a […]

onra – deep in the night ep

  • Onra - Deep In The Night cover
  • A heads up on the first 2012 release of the German-born French/Asian sensation that goes bij the name Onra: “Deep In The Night“ is a groovy cut-up throwback to 80′s electrofunk.   Since his first release with Quetzal (the 2006 “Present: Tribute”) that was purely based on soul music, Onra slid into digging up old […]

oddisee – people hear what they see

  • Oddisee - People Hear What They See cover
  • US producer Oddisee must be going after James Brown’s title “The Hardest Working Man In Showbiz”, since his latest full-length release “People Hear What They See” is his (correct me if I’m wrong) 14th album since dropping “Instrumental Mixtape Volume 1″ in 2005. And that’s not counting his work for Diamond District, Low Budget and […]

living in a shell – earthlings [download]

  • Living In A Shell - Earthlings cover
  • After slowly oozing into the music scene during the 90′s and peaking hard in the early 2000′s, downtempo suddenly disappeared, only leaving traces of its existence through the stripped-down version we know as lounge. The lack of interest isn’t really hard to explain: the music is instrumental and intense, the mood usually tends to be […]

  • MC Melodee & Cookin Soul - Check Out Melodee cover
  • Whoop, time for some more music to get into the summer vibes. Melodee dropped a mixtape through DatPiff, putting oldschool positive hip-hop vibes in a 2012 coating.

suff daddy – suff sells

  • Suff Daddy - Suff Sells
  • Like they say in that Stereonerds track: “Funk is what you don’t play / it’s the space between events / Funk is what you don’t say / it’s the silence you don’t feel”. If there’s one hip hop based producer who’s got that down to a T, it’s Suff Daddy.   Exactly the reason why […]

  • I don’t know what’s up with you, but over here it’s warm and cloudy.

subp yao – smoke up, drink up [download]

  • Subp Yao - Smoke Up, Drink Up cover
  • You’ve got to hand it to Saturate!Records: since their start they’ve churned out a string of high quality releases, and the new Subp Yao full length release “Smoke Up, Drink Up“ suits that string like soap on a rope.   S!R is effectively putting their name out there as a supplier of heavy bass and […]

solid steel 40 – david axelrod interview [download]

  • Solid Steel 40 - David Axelrod Interview cover
  • I don’t listen to interviews much, simply because my attention span just can’t cut it.  But ever since Skidz told me to check out the Solid Steel radio show (Ninja Tune) interview with David Axelrod (2001) I went mental on it and it’s been a regular recurrence in my playlist. Whether you’re a sample-head, history […]
