fbcfabric & reindeer – It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Whom You Know

Originally released back in 2005, FBC Fabric and Reindeers album “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Whom You Know” is being given a new lease of life with its debut vinyl release. Originally released on hand crafted CD, that are long sold out now, Mism Records have done an awesome of re-issuing the album on deluxe triple vinyl, strictly limited to 100 copies.
Musically the album is left-field, avant-garde, experimental hip hop, easily comparable to Anticon Records releases. As much as this is true, there is without a doubt a big influence, it still feels like a slightly lazy comparison. You can also hear influences from the likes of Taskforce, El-P and Def Jux, classic hip hop, folk music and much more.
This is serious music with depth and passion, left-field UK hip hop done well not sounding like a poor imitation of our state side counter parts. Perfect autumn and winter listening, we urge you to get a copy while you can.
Buy the album from Mism Records here.

Asbest The Moor King – Mind Of A Few

Brighton MC Asbest The Moor King releases his new album, “Mind of a Few”. The album is an interesting, refreshing slice of UK hip hop coming from left-field.
Asbest is an intelligent, versatile rapper who also produces 7 of the 12 tracks on offer here, the other 5 being produced by Leplezett. The list of guests on the album is like a who’s who of the weird side of UK hip hop, something we always like to hear. Alongside Asbest’s rhyming skills you have guests Invokal – Verbalist Journalist, James Reindeer, St Jude and more. Finishing off with a few nice instrumental tracks, this is an intelligent, entertaining album that keeps you guessing. This is just the kind of album that makes me say, we need more of this coming out of the UK hip hop scene!
Buy “Mind Of A Few” now on cassette and digital, do it!

James Reindeer – ستة ستة سبعة – Six Six Seven

The first official full-length, self-produced solo release from James Reindeer. entitled ‘six six seven’, is a darkly-psychedelic journey into distant lands across almost forty minutes of arabian-influenced free-jazz doom-rap.
Sound good? Too right. Released on very limited edition cassette (sadly now sold out) and digitally, the album is a must for any fan off left-field hip hop, folk, experimental music in general, you get the idea. Check out the videos below, and then grab the album.
