Son of Sam – Cinder Hill

Son of Sam’s full length album, “Cinder Hill” is now released for your listening pleasure. The 4 piece live band have created a soulful, funky, with hints of rock, album in the vein of classic boom bap hip hop. The list of MC’s the band have got on board is highly impressive, including the likes of Sadat X, Guilty Simpson, Large Professor, Soundsci, Prince Po and more. The album works really well as a whole, but stand out tracks for us are “Forward March” featuring Oxygen and 7even Thirty, “Deep Breath” featuring Jamall Bufford and “Put It On Ya” with Soundsci and Mr Thing.
For anyone out there who likes their hip hop super funky, “Cinder Hill” is a must have for you!

Funky DL – Incognito In Soho

Funky DL returns with a fully instrumental album, “Incognito In Soho”. Here the UK vet mixes up super nice, laid back jazzy vibes, with solid head nodding hip hop beats. This is instrumental hip hop for all those “real” boom bap fans out there.
With each track crafted as a fresh landscape for this project, this cohesive listening experience of 10 tracks in under 40 minutes showcases Funky DL’s unmatched ability to curate beats and samples through layering, comprehensive filtering and effortless whilst meticulous arrangement. Many beat-makers release beat-tapes compiling old and second-rate throw away music from their archives, but DL’s approach here is no different from when he is preparing to produce new music for his vocal work; only the best beats will do. This one of the fundamental reasons that Funky DL has been for so long considered a global treasure in Jazz and Hip-Hop production. ‘Incognito In Soho’ intends to take the listener through various emotive states from the lament of “The Glimmer of Nightfall”, to the excitement of “Gallery of Glass”, as well as the contrasts in “Turbulent Serenity”, each track allows the listener to lose themselves into the exploration of the night; as if they were ‘Incognito In Soho’.
Buy it now from Funky DL’s bandcamp page, and check out the video to “The Glimmer of Nightfall”.
