Youth:Kill – A Hunters Moon

Walter Gross and rapper K-The-I??? come together on as Youth:Kill with “A Hunters Moon” to create a unique EP that pushes the boundaries of hip hop music. Gross provides the music, which is a harsh mix of industrial noise, metallic beats and distorted baselines, while K-the-I??? rhymes furiously, fitting in where ever he can, taking on any off kilter beat and laying into it hard. This is not easy listening, but it’s great to hear people out there still trying to push hip hop in different directions and not afraid of experimenting.

Meakoom & Bare Beats – ME

Bare Beats has teamed up soul vocalist Meakoom to create the new 3 track ep, “ME”. The ep see’s Bare Beats providing the soulful, yet slightly off key, electronic based beats for Meakoom to let loose over. The soulful musing from Meakoom were all impromptu giving it a more immediate feel, anything could have happened but this is what they arrived at and it sounds damn good.
Grab the “ME”, including all instrumentals, from bandcamp for name your price download.

Kill Billionaires – Terrorism

Kill Billionaires is back with another elusive video, “Terrorism”. Still we no nothing of him, but we like what we hear!

Strangelove – EP 1

Finally Strangelove return with a new release, “EP 1”. Taking their brand of blissed out, left of centre hip hop to a new level. Production wise, “EP 1” is sparse, atmospheric, verging on ambient at time, with hints of future beats and electronica, this is miles away from boom bap hip hop, but it works perfectly. Super chilled, yet full of energy, the MC’s lay their well crafted rhymes over melodic tones and noises, there’s not always a beat, but they show you don’t always need one. The groups sound does fit well into the weed driven UK hip hop scene, but doesn’t rely on cliches vocally or musically too many fall into. Creating a sound that stoners and experimental fans will enjoy equally, or just fans of good interesting music.
Out now on limited edition cassette and digital, this is definitely the kind of thing we want to hear more of coming out of the UK. Also check out the video for the track “Lonely Souls” featuring Bellatrix.

 

 

Tobacco – Ripe & Majestic (Instrumental Rarities & Unreleased Beats)

Tobacco releases “Ripe & Majestic”, a new album of rare instrumentals and unreleased tracks recorded between 2007 and 2017.
These include instrumental versions of tracks by Beans, the instrumentals of remixes of people such as Sole, The Go Team, Dirty Ghosts and other unused beats and outtakes.
All the tracks on offer are unmistakably Tobacco, they have his signature sound, but all work perfectly as stand alone instrumental tracks. This is heavy, grinding, sometimes brutal electronic beat music, taking in influence from psychedlia, indie rock, hip hop and god knows what else, but it works and works well.
Out August 25th Red Cult Records.

Andrew Cosentino – Islip Speedway

We were impressed and think you will be too. Grab it now for free download!

Tobacco – Got Wet In The Bomb Shelter

Yes the part man part Black Moth noise merchant, Tobacco is back with a single, “Got Wet In The Bomb Shelter”. If you have liked Tobacco’s previous outings, or Black Moth Super Rainbow (his other project), you will definitely like the new single. Heavy electronic beats with nasty, dirty baselines, all kept all within the realm of psychedelic weirdness. It’s good, check it out!

Kill Billionaires – Bomb Billionaires

So, I know virtually nothing about this video. I was sent it with the message, “I’m a guy in other groups who just started an anonymous new solo project called Kill Billionaires. Here’s some kinda out music played live. I hope you like it!”
Well I did, so here it is…

Jason Furlow – Last Man Standing

Last year saw the return of Sebash, one half of the classic hip hop freak funkers New Kingdom, via the excellent Mongrels album, “Attack The Monolith”. Now the other half, Nosaj aka Jason Furlow returns with a brand new cassette single, “Last Man Standing”.
Jason lays his unmistakable raspy vocals over a cinematic, electronic, sharp yet laid back hip hop rhythm to great effect. The b-side, “Modern Man” features fellow electro freakster CX Kidtronik, so you know this is going to be something special.
Released on the 30th of June via Dub Ditch Picnic on limited cassette single and digital. If seeing is believing then I believe!

Electronic, wonky, forward thinking hip hop beats are the order of the day here, all perfectly executed over 26 tracks.
