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.

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.

Les Swashbuckling Napoleons / James P. Honey Split 7″

mism09-webMism Records release a new split 7″ from Les Swashbuckling Napoleons and James P Honey.
Les Swashbuckling Napoleons track, “Smash The Compass, Kill To Play” is an interesting mix of unconventional hip hop, electronics, folk and more. It reminds me of the old Anticon releases, without sounding dated or unoriginal.
James P Honeys side, “How To Build An Ark” is pure folk hip hop poetry. Acoustic guitars, luscious strings and Mr Honeys distinctive vocals, part rapper, part poet, part folk singer.

The 7″ is a strictly limited release, only 123 copies are made, with silk screen covers. You can order a copy and have a listen here. Don’t miss out!
