The Natural Curriculum producer Aver releases his first fully instrumental album “Die Berlin Dateien” on Village Live Records soon. Having been a fan of Avers production for sometime now (see the interview with the man himself here) this is highly exciting news!
You can pre-order the LP from July 27th but for now check out the promo video below and make sure to check out his pretty vast back catalogue here.
Its well worth it.
Mancunian hip hoppers The Natural Curriculum are back with a new free track and video, “Frozen Lederhosen”. With Aver and Bill Sykes handling the vocal duties, this adds to the crews ever growing catalogue of quality hip hop.
Check out their bandcamp page for all their previous releases and check out our interview with Aver here.
Awhile back we caught up with Manchester born, now Berlin based, producer and MC from The Natural Curriculum, Aver for a few words about the crew, their music, influences and more. This was originally meant for when they dropped their debut album as a full crew, “The Best Fertiliser is the Gardener’s Shadow”, however due to one thing and another it was delayed. However, now Aver has just unleashed 15 brand new instrumental tracks on the world, we thought what better time than now. So, enjoy…
I like the idea of getting Go Go Penguin in a room with Lee Scott and giving them all a tonne of mushrooms and seeing what they’d come up with. You could get Onoe Caponoe and Strange U to be back-up singers as well and I reckon you’d have some multiverse altering shit right there.
Manchester’s hip hop collective The Natural Curriculum are set to release their new album, “The Best Fertiliser Is The Gardener’s Shadow” on September 12th. The 10 track long player features the vocal talents of Chalk, Bill Sykes and Aver holds down vocals as well as all the production.
Those familiar with the crews previous release, and there are many all well worth checking out, will know how well the crew blend on point rhymes with funky, head nodding, slightly off kilter hip hop beats. I for one am definitely looking forward to hearing what the album has in store, the more I hear from TNC the more interested and the more I want to hear. Definitely not one to sleep on, pre-order the album now and check out the video for “Middle”.
Producer, rapper Aver returns with a new EP, “And Now For Something Exactly The Same…”.
Coming from Manchester’s Natural Curriculum crew, Aver’s new release is a great example of break heavy, funky hip hop that keeps you guessing. On the face of it the EP keeps your head nodding and speakers bumping, but on closer inspection this is multi-layered music, creeping in more left of field sounds and influences. “And Now For Something Exactly The Same…” covers both instrumental and vocal hip hop with a super nice video for the upbeat banger “She Prayed To The Moon”, you all need to get you ears round this now!

MC/Producer Chalk, is part of the Mancunian hip hop collective The Natural Curriculum.
Having 4 highly regarded releases under their belts, “One For Being Me” is the 5th and latest album from the collective.
Vocally Chalk is a refreshing MC, telling heartfelt stories on his own terms and in his own style. After seeing the excellent video for the single, “If You Must”, I was expecting the album to be a happy-go-lucky kind of affair. So I was impressed by depth and breadth of Chalks lyrics, dealing with death, love, life, the whole deal. This helps set the Manchester MC apart from your typical UK rapper and give the album real diversity.
Musically, all bar 3 tracks produced by Chalk, the album is pack full of solid boom bap funkiness. You can tell Chalk and the crew are real funk lovers and know how to utilise a good sample. It ranges from up beat party styles, to darker more introspective sounds.
Released on 12″, CD and digital from Sept 20th go grab yourself a copy, and check out the rest of the TNC releases while you’re at it. Boom!
