kratos himself – a town called imaginarium [download]

  • Kratos Himself - A Town Called Imaginarium cover
  • Another great release for this season is “Kratos Himself – A Town Called Imaginarium“. Normally we would write up a review ourselves, but in this case the folks at Sound Colour Vibration did an excellent Q&A with the producer that really sums up the EP in such a way we couldn’t really complement!   So […]

dia – bang [download]

  • Dia - Bang internet cover
  • There’s no better way to end a blogging hibernation than by posting a release one of your own people did. Definitely if he’s dropped a tight mix depicting exactly what popular Trap music is about at this very moment, and also since it’s his first public mix in y-e-a-r-s.   Being a Hip Hop Uomo […]

dj sands – sands is spinnin’ [download]

  • Spinnin logo
  • Yes! Another dope bass-heavy mix by Spinnin’s DJ Sands. Aptly timed for the local Fuse party (Utrecht / NL) headlining Lunice tonight, and a nice warm-up for the next Lean Back party next Month. In this set called ‘Sands Is Spinnin’ the resident LB DJ serves a blended platter of Hiphop, Trap and Bass.   […]

umoja – palago [download]

  • Umoja - Palago cover
  • Some talk dirty about re-edits, some just like to dance and don’t care one bit. I used to be opposed to it a lot, but throughout the years it dawned on me that re-edits are just a silent lesson as sampling in general is: they are showcasing (parts of) both the hits and forgotten gems […]
