Laid Back recently released a 15-minute documentary about “more than a crate digger”Jean Roger aka JR. We encourage you to watch it, since it’s a very interesting watch.
Another great performance live @ The Rootdown. This time it’s Eric Bobo on the percussions and Beat Junkies legend DJ Rhettmatic on the turntables. Watch how they’re going back and forth in this 50 minutes long video, very good funky stuff!
Stumbled upon these mashups thanks to Doctrations. KMT mixes totally different songs into one mashups, which results in a collection of very interesting tracks. He offers his first album ‘Waterproof London’, a collection of his mashups, for free on his website. And because it definitely contains a few very good tracks, you can download it here on The Find Magazine as well. Enjoy!
This is a promotional video of J. Rawls’ & John Robinson’s track ‘It’s Jay ARE’, the first single of their collaboration called ‘Jay Are – The 1960’s Jazz Revolution Again’. We encourage you to check out the album, because it’s really good!
After his latest release, 1rst Born Second in 2001, soulsinger Bilal is back next year with a new album. He will release his highly anticipated sophomore album on indie label Plug Research.
That’s right, another contest for you! This time we giveaway five signed copies of Maple St. Sessions by Preach Jacobs & Denz!
Vol. 1 is a laid back compilation of tracks I listen to recently. Some of them you probably know and some of them should be quite new for you. On our first compilation you’ll get few tracks with beautiful voices, few beats with MC’s spittin on it and few instrumentals. It’s a mixture of different music genres, so we hope you’ll all like it.
Damn, I love it how Arrested Development always brings the good stuff. 17 years after the release of the classic ‘3 Years, 5 Months & Two Days In The Life Of…’ the group still manages to create good music. In 2006 they released the highly anticipated album ‘Since The Last Time’ and in 2010 their brand new album ‘Strong’ drops.
After the critically acclaimed release of Travel At Your Own Pace in 2007, Y Society (Damu The Fudgemunk & Insight) releases the instrumentals of their debut in late november this year.
If someone asks me to name some lyrical talents, RA Scion is the one who comes in mind first. Together with producer Sabzi, he’s Common Market: the Seattle-based duo who released several albums and EP’s since 2005. It’s arguable if you like Blue Scholars (Geologic + Sabzi) or Common Market more, but there’s one thing we don’t have to argue about: RA Scion is good. Very good.
