Stumbled onto this very lo- fi release by YUSEF AFLOAT courtesy of Diggers Vault in Germany….I’m not sure how they got their hands on these tracks, or if they received YUSEF’s family or affiliates blessing- regardless the “Black Tapes” will make any true to the grain “NONCE” fan extremely excited…

” Lisaan’dro : Million Caribbeans “

Screen Shot 2018-07-16 at 1.09.56 PM

When it comes to flipping multi syllables, greasy street talk, wild flows, and all that other shit LISAANDRO’s name should be mentioned…On “A Million Caribbeans” he flexes his steez over a FARMA BEATS production that is worthy of adding to the rotation…

CHECK IN !!!

” Toronto Momentum “

Screen Shot 2018-07-10 at 1.17.43 PM

Just like many of the HIP HOP BATTLEFIELD readers I have am well versed in Toronto Hip Hop since the days of DREAM WARRIORS & MAESTRO FRESH WES – but for the last few years I have seen some interesting developments from out the “6” that is centered around gritty, street bully, lo fi ugly production type shit with solid results….Too many cats to name but DANIEL SON continues to drop decent material that is worthy of some rotation action…

On “Underbelly” he drops some dirty bars alongside ASUN EASTWOOD that should perk your ears up….Produced by FUTURE WAVE (Yeah, this beat is flames)

” Body Rock “

Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 1.43.46 PM

Since it is Summertime and the girls are rocking Summer dresses, wild yoga pants, tube tops, and all types of wild wiggle friendly attire – I’m going to transport you back to 1981 for a heavy dose of Hawaiian groove morale courtesy of ALOHA GOT SOUL..

Unfortunately these rare pieces are sold out, but you can still catch a zone….

PEEP..

“A rare look into the discotheque era of Waikiki, Al Nobriga’s “My Last Disco Song” tells of a time when nightclubs lined Kalakaua Avenue and practically every hotel hosted live entertainment. Seven days a week, locals rubbed elbows with visitors in discos like The Point After, Cock’s Roost, Garden Bar, Infinity, Duke Kahanamoku’s, Foxy Lady Too, Valentino’s, Hawaiian Hut—the list goes on.

In the years following the release of Al Nobriga with Island Company’s LP, They’re Playing My Music, a massive shift in Waikiki’s tourism industry began. More and more nightclubs closed their doors or hired duos and disc jockeys to entertain guests. The venues that once lined Kalakaua Avenue eventually gave way to newly constructed luxury shopping centers, a trend that continues into the 21st century.

Nobriga offers a poignant escape from what would soon become decades of ongoing development in Waikiki. Not just another yacht rock tune, “Break Away” carries the listener to a place where one finds enlightenment in the tropical winds and cool ocean blue, far from the concrete jungle of Honolulu”…

” Manipulator : Jazz Is Everything “

Screen Shot 2018-06-27 at 10.48.04 PM

DJ & Producer MANIPULATOR from Massachusetts has been making a name for himself for several years at this point…When it comes to production he is solid, but he also finesses the decks with skills and discipline…On the “Jazz Is Everything” mix brings all types of flavors into the equation…

PEEP-

“With his expertly crafted and all-vinyl new mix, Massachusetts-based deejay/producer DJ Manipulator shows love to the genre that birthed Hip-Hop as we know it. ‘Jazz Is Everything’ is thirty music-packed minutes of Jazz cuts that later served as the inspiration (and backbone) of a bevy of classic rap joints.

From start to finish, Manip uses ‘Jazz Is Everything’ to drive home the point that Jazz is indeed damn-near everything. That’s because all of the material on here have been sampled in one way or another (and often multiple times) to create the instrumentals of so many beloved songs. And those songs run the gamut from De La Soul’s “Stakes Is High,” to Method Man & Redman’s “Maaad Crew,” to Gang Starr’s “ALONGWAYTOGO.”

” Kid Capri vs Funkmaster Flex “

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 9.59.58 PM

When I first caught wind of some type of friction between KID CAPRI & FUNKMASTER FLEX, just like many of you I barely paid any attention and kept it moving..

WHY ?

Even though I have respect for both on some type of level – I feel they strayed far from the original recipe and got caught up in the hype aspect of the art form instead of the skill trade side of the things…Shit got too commercial with them…Things got extremely corny and predictable for me…So a so-called battle between the two of them appeared as entertaining as a lengthy root canal procedure…

I changed my opinion quickly though when I caught this clip yesterday of KID CAPRI setting off a preemptive strike against the notorious loud mouth Funk Flex….Instead of going the expected glossy route – the BX legend let off a full clip of strictly breaks all the while calling FLEX out and hitting him with all types of taunts, disses, and over the top verbal abuse….Sure CAPRI uses Serato (This would have been way iller if he kept it traditional with the breaks and freaked vinyl) but I can’t front, this is the type of energy that made me appreciate him in the first place….

Seriously doubt FLEX will enter the ring after catching wind of this..

” Agallah 2018 “

Screen Shot 2018-06-26 at 9.36.46 PM

Gotta give that kid AGALLAH credit for maintaining in the music world for this long…Matter of fact, I believe he is now just fully hitting his stride..On his newest project “No Mercy For The Weak” he builds momentum over self produced tracks that are worthy of adding into your rotation..

” Drop A Gem : Bumpy Knuckles “
