After having ‘The Old Prince’ steady on repeat for quite a while, I’m anticipating a new release by Shad. And I have some good news: it’s coming! The Canadian emcee will release his brand new album called ‘TSOL’ on May 25th this year.
1773 (Wisdom O.N.E., Just J & Moral One) is set to release its first album in 2010, ‘Sound Soulstice’. It’s a follow up after the release ‘Return Of The New’ in 2009. The album will be entirely produced by Australian producer ARKiV.
Diego Bernal: Civil rights attorney crimefighter by day and beat producer by night. After his critically acclaimed album ‘For Corners’ in 2009, he’s back with a brand new album called ‘Besides…’. And the best part: it’s free!
Clement & Co is back with a new edition of ‘We Are The Standard’, videos focussing on visionaries who bring new ideas to well established mediums. In this episode, they sit down with Los Angeles-based DJ/artist/producer Kutmah to talk about good music, naked women and biters.
After our weekly selections, this time we return with a yet to be released song! California based wordsmith Surreal blessed us with a track that’s not released officially yet. It’s a remix of Caroline Ailin’s ‘At My Worst’, featuring Dert and Surreal himself.
Personally I like conceptual albums a lot. A few days back I received this album by 5th Element in my inbox; an instrumental album that follows the life of a main character called Terrell. Below you can read the story track by track from start to finish.
Wow, I just had an eye opener. Some people may know that in addition to running my record label Uncommon Records, that I also do a podcast called Uncommon Radio. The show is usually co-hosted by my partner in rhymes Cirrus Minor and it can be found here. I always ask for people to send us demos that I can play on the show. So, I’ve ended up on a few lists and gotten some true gems sent to me.
Remember the free downloadable ‘Let Me Introduce EP’ by Joe Kickass we posted a while back? If you do, then you’re probably very interested to see this brand new video. If not, then better check out his EP and get familiar with the Dutch artist who goes under the name of Joe Kickass!
It seems like everyone is in love with the latest Adidas commercial. I have to admit I also enjoy the fresh vibe in between other boring commercials. The soundtrack by Dee Edwards (‘Why Can’t There Be Love’, 1972) is the main reason for that. That’s why our Pick Of The Week is related to that soundtrack this time.
The good people over at Jus Like Music and Apple Juice Break released the first part (out of two) of ‘Oscillations’. A compilation featuring great music that should be heard. Spread the word and enjoy the music!
