Jay Scarlett – Future Sounds For My Classic Generation

September 24, 2008

Whispered to a couple o’ my close heads yesterday that I was intending to unveil a midweek world exclusive today.

I kid not.

This is a fresh-off-the-stove melting pot (not single-track, individual mp3s) masterminded by tastemaker Jay Scarlett of the internationally renowned Beat Dimensions movement: champions of the bold, brazen, progressive and fearless future of music.

Those of you who copped Jay and Cinnaman’s Beat Dimensions Vol. 1 courtesy of us will know what to anticipate: a seamless selection of spacey, bugged out, glitched-up, forehead-knockin’, ultramodern Soul, Hip-Hop, Dubstep, Grime and other Electronic hybrids alongside classic, organic vibes. This man has his fingers on the pulse of these evolving genres (if one can even box them like that which I doubt). You may want to listen in, in dread of being left behind…

This compilation was recently completed in private conjunction with Reebok (and otherwise may not have seen the light of day) though I’m notified it’s getting pushed for a wider drop later this month. Disc jockeys, promoters, bloggites, audiophiles, forum dwellers, honour Your Mum: get this out there as far as possible, make the world pay attention to that next generation.

Props going out to my source for the fantastic voyage.

U-N-I + Film School Rejekts Double Drop

September 24, 2008

2 dope joints just dropped over at 2 Dope Boyz and warranted immediate post (plus the end of the month mixtape to be unleashed in 7 days is already 30 stonkin’ tracks full and it’s giving me a selectah-migraine).

First ‘Beautiful Day’, then ‘Castlevania’ and now a third outstanding U-N-I jawn to drop, chaps are on a roll & I say bollocks to this daft notion of “All Hipster-Hop Is Homo” fabricated by e-thugs and aged puritans (you’re worse than Republicans). The jeans don’t make the music. Dope and whack in every sub-culture. But just listen to the snare they kick it with…

Honestly, I’ve never heard of these cats, but 1. That’s how the net viral spiral starts. 2. No traces of Mel B or Geri Halliwell rapping on it. 3. Great beat, cold rhymes n’ flows. 4. I sorta study film and have idle dreams of becoming a film-maker. So ya know. Fitting.

Kissey Asplund – Silverlake

September 22, 2008

Adorable Miss. Asplund is one of my breakthrough artists of 2008 with her futuristic Soul debut ‘Plethora’ (shouts to my duke DJ Cavalry for puttin’ me on that earlier this year, and all the heads I had hooked on it consequential to that). Not sure why I have to keep repeating, “don’t sleep on the Swedes”.

The new single ‘Silverlake’ and it’s B-side ‘Snowfall’ are produced by Dorian Concept (with artwork from Piet Parra) exclusively for Nike’s AM90 launch campaign, and they’re both quite simply spellbinding. It excites me to hear artists challenging the status quo as Kissey does. It’s like the rebirth of Trip-Hop’s most intoxicating aspects.

Respects to Nike for having the balls (product placement pun intended) to put this ill sista on. It’s a wise move if they’re looking to tap into a market of progressive music-orientated fashionistas.

Drops today Oct 22nd as a limited 12″ vinyl, and digitally November 3rd.

Props to Kyri at R2 Records and Chris Philips at Choice FM.

Blu & Mainframe – Johnson & Jonson

September 21, 2008

After rampant bootlegging earlier this year (which Your Mum was not really a part of) Blu & Mainframe’s overdue emcee/producer collabo project ‘Johnson & Jonson’ is set to drop September 23rd.

I’ve been saying it for over a year and a half- Blu is the truth: one of trailblazers of the new Westcoast renaissance.

Late Of The Pier – Fantasy Black Channel

September 10, 2008

Current contenders for my favourite new/emerging British band of the year so far…

(I have to keep conjuring up these categories, it gives my life some pretentious level of order & meaning. Leave me.)

The Nottinghamshire four-piece have aligned themselves with Erol Alkan for the entire debut. It’s borderline bonkers. Or atleast better than the Mystery Jet’s album.

The Cool Kids – Pennies

August 15, 2008

By the beard of zeus! This is actually the most gulliest shit I’ve heard, in hours. Pure molten lava, peg-rollin’, punk-whistlin’ anthem shit. Ill rhymes. Iller flows. Sonics have developed. I feel Chuck & Mikey are being severely overlooked for the sake of purism. Let’s keep it moving forward.

The first single from their forthcoming LP ‘When Fish Ride Bicycles’, out shortly.

MF Doom & Trunks Present – Unicron

August 15, 2008

Who be this undergarment-inspired fella Trunks? I only know as much as you: a Canadian emcee featured on the King Gheedora LP. I wasn’t quite expecting any rap revelations this evening, yet Trunks happens to be just that dispensing a mettlesome underground EP that surely most heads will jump on for the special herbs alone.

Unicron dropped unexpectedly like some Chris Wallace bird-shit. Fresh beats specially weeded with Metal Fingers; initially I merely skimmed with fiendish fashion to find a Doom verse much to no avail, yet was countered with a tirade of surprisingly dope dork raps delivered with sharp claws: Stan Lee, Star Wars, Clive Barker, Thor, dragons, all inclusive. Trunks is a discovery, and I’m positively paying attention now.

Nonetheless, a proportion of this shine IS pilfered by the classic (Doom studio standard) drunkard drum taps and histrionic, Lo-Fi instrumentals with breaks unmistakably retrieved from the dead-skin-celled depths of MF’s VHS collection. For all my grubby ‘Operation: Doomsday’ and ‘Mm Food’ goons, these utterly sick sounds should just about keep us at bay until the next grand solo.

Having said that, my restlessness evolves into irritation. First Lib’s resplendently laced Madvillainy Remix piece and now this Doom assembly here- how many more befitting backdrops will drop unjustly untouched by Daniel Dumile?

Janelle Monae – Metropolis: The Chase Suite [Special Edition]

August 13, 2008

Your Mum had this up a month ago via the blockbuster Future Sounds of Soul Music post so ‘fore you diagnose me a senile bugger, understand the EP was re-released in the States yesterday with 2 additional bonus cuts, hence a vital re-up.

I’ve been trying to tell people for months, and I’m back at it again- however due to the lethargic haziness of recent sleep deprivation one is currently at his least comprehensive, so, yeah…

Janelle Monae is the future of your goddamn world. A bold, brilliant, bonafide superstar creature. Recognise.

And I’m esoterically in love with her, with plans to pro-create. Hol’ tight forthcoming babymother.

Amanda Diva – Life Experience

August 11, 2008

In June I shot a stunning Amanda Diva joint titled ‘Windows Over Harlem (Heart of The City)‘ from her upcoming mixtape ‘Foreplay’ over to a couple o’ my homeskillet girlies much to their elation; equal to my own when I’d first discovered it as I’ve had this sincere longing to see the female rap game redeemed.

She’s got a resilience reminiscent of the Blackstar era on the mic. And you know I got love for my B-Girls too.

A little later I received requests to drop her 2007 debut EP which is quite good, though I sense she’s blossomed into her style more comfortably since and I suggest we keep an iris out for Diva in the near future.

All you Kid Sister enthusiasts need to sit your neon-sporting asses the fuck out (bar Amanda’s green hat in the video which I’ll allow for I am biased).

U-N-I – Fried Chicken & Watermelon

August 5, 2008

These guys, are a bit like, a slightly better (dressed) version of Frank-N-Dank.

Sufficient enough mixtape that I haven’t been in a rush to post (now 8 months after acquisition), then I felt it’s notable for 2 utterly outstanding cuts you’ll be needing in your life very much if you’re currently devoid of them: ‘Castlevania’ is one of my gorilla-thumping, vertebrate-snapping, 8-bit, Nintendo-beat bangers of ‘08. And ‘Beautiful Day’ shimmers so lustrously with Summery boom-bap glory it almost suppresses my usual misanthropy and cheers me up, a little.

Hollyweerd – Edible Phat

August 5, 2008

In early June, I had one personal anthem only: ‘Have You Ever Made Love To A Weirdo?’ Excelling with a delicious sax solo 3 minute and 19 seconds in, it’s a miniature classic awaiting mainstream acknowledgement and chronic radio rotation.

I expected more from this mixtape however… but I’m never one not to emit a fat wad of steaming doo-doo-butter on the hype when it’s premature- I’ll wait till a debut album instead.

And a memorandum to the lesser music pundits: just because this troupe hails from Atlanta, and they wear silly outfits and spout colorful libretto… does not give you the right to the call them the next Outkast, you indolent, unimaginative arseholes. More akin to an electronic Nappy Roots as far as lazy artist comparisons go, do your homework.

Worth downloading for the one joint alone; the rest of the mixtape despite some very capable newbies, is sadly unremarkable.

Johnson & Jonson (Blu + Mainframe) – Powders & Oils [Bootleg]

August 5, 2008

This has been floating the pirate’s gulf and sitting on my PC since January… now forgive my pridefulness, but I’ve been assured I was one of the first cats (in my general vicinity) to thrust Blu & Exile’s ‘Below The Heavens’ (the definitive sleeper hit of 2007 Hip-Hop’s bland caboodle) hither and thither when nobody was hearing it early on (in the days before Your Mum when I would have to manoeuvre low-key with these links like I was pushin’ weight).

So I’d like to say I’m doing the honours on this one, but I simply found the 21 track promo neither as stirring nor as deeply channelled as Blu’s first emcee/producer alliance offering thus I’m preserving the fireworks just yet… maybe the absolute final product will deliver when it drops September 23rd.

6.10am. And before I lay my weary head…

I love this lady and all her split personas: Muhsinah >>> Boozina >>> Nhmiah Su.

Robust, bubbling self-produced soultronica to make the galactic jazz federations bump spaceships unto a DUI arrest. I’m high and my head pulsates with this miniature masterstroke. A more zealously realised piece of work than her prior material, presented to us in under 14 minutes of audio- I go to bed hungry.

Kid Cudi – A Kid Named Cudi

July 17, 2008

The first time ‘Day N’ Nite’ leaked into my aural I was caught by this Ohio native’s musing on the hook, “Cuz day n’ night/ The lonely stoner seems to free his mind at night/ He’s all alone through the day n’ night/ The lonely loner seems to free his mind at night”. Had I just discovered what may well be… borderline Emo-Crunk?

You’ll find forlorn, outcast sentiments peppered throughout the tape, and maybe this gives insight into the changing face of Rap music as a new generation of artists chooses to take a sabbatical from the ostentatious lyrical clichés that may no longer be enough to keep Hip-Hop generating mass interest and selling 5 years down the line outside of the States. In simple terms, I think Cudi for example knows (and if he doesn’t, here’s the science homie) there’s cream cheese to be collected from the Caucasian kids that cop My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy records in both American and European suburbs. Everybody, spit cereal-milk at your Fathers and let’s get emotional.

This mixtape is in conjunction with streetwear brand 10 Deep who also hooked up promising Washington spitter Wale’s slightly superior Mixtape About Nothing which you’ll stumble upon in my 7 Months Into 2008 semi-annual update.

A commendable few borrowed beats here aswell including Dilla’s ‘Wild’ and Andre 3000’sPrototype’, though it’s Cudi’s own canvases that spark intrigue from the dusty boom-bap of Is There Any Love? which later evolves into the radio-affable luster of ‘Day N’ Nite’, yet it’s the intergalactic highlights ‘Cleveland Is The Reason’ and ‘Heaven At Nite’ that made me certain this piece was post-worthy. In honesty, I don’t think Cudi is a tremendous emcee just yet but the unusual vibe he brings to the bench is worth noting for those who want to examine forthcoming industry trends.

Nola Darling – Pretty Gritty Mini-Mixtape

July 17, 2008

For those of you who aren’t Spike Lee enthusiasts and haven’t seen the classic ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ (released in the year of my birth), take it away Wikipedia…

“Nola Darling (portrayed by Tracy Camilla Johns) is a young, attractive, sexually independent Brooklynite who juggles three suitors: the polite and well-meaning Jamie Overstreet (Tommy Redmond Hicks); the self-obsessed model Greer Childs (John Canada Terrell); and the immature, motormouthed bicycle messenger Mars Blackmon (Spike Lee). Nola is attracted to the best in each of them, but refuses to commit to any of them, cherishing her personal freedom instead, even though each man wants her for himself.”

Now as for these two upcoming Harlem honeys I’m feeling- female compeers to The Cool Kids in this current phase? (No lazy music journalist artist-comparison bullshit intended.)
