The Expert – Dynamic Drift

After a decexpertade of creating groundbreaking hip hop tunes as part of duo Messiah J & The Expert, it’s time for beat commander and music master The Expert, to start a brand new chapter of his very own.
That chapter begins with Dynamic Drift, The Expert’s debut album which takes you on a brilliant laid back journey, while still infusing plenty of intricate nuances that makes you want to keep hitting that repeat button. It epitomizes the commitment of The Expert from infusing new techniques with the classic Hip Hop sound. Dynamic Drift is a thirteen track melodic excursion that ensures a good old head nod from start to finish and is produced entirely by The Expert.
This album is dope and to make things even sweeter, you can download it for free! But please feel free to part with some cash.

Ngozi Family – Day Of Judgement

The Ngozi FDay of Judgementamily album, “Day Of Judgement” is out now on Now Again Records.
It mixes African rhythms with fuzzed out guitar licks, proto-punk, garage rock, hard funk and more. If you are a fan of the work they did with Chrissy Zebby Tembo, then you will need to get hold of this album. It has a similar vibe, although I would say this has a much harder, lo-fi sound.
