” MC Eight Salute “

Screen Shot 2016-08-26 at 12.00.38 PM

When it comes to west coast Hip Hop greats MC EIGHT is not mentioned nearly enough….The first 3 CMW albums are not only classics, they also managed to keep their production sample heavy without copying what Dr.Dre was doing at the time (Unlike the majority of their contemporaries)….

Earlier this year he dropped a couple 45’s with ALCHEMIST & SPICE ONE that are worthy of your attention if they slid passed past your radar…

PEEP….

*Not sure what happened to the DJ Premier collabo album that was discussed a few years back…Hopefully one day that will happen, but at this point I doubt it..

” Heavy Mellow Mix “

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 11.26.41 AM

Over three hours of heavy groove morale on deck……

Heavy mellow: two words that can describe so much of the music that’s created in Hawaii. This is what inspired us in our latest mix, the relaxed sounds of our islands that move us deeply.On June 10th, 2016, clothing company Claymore Minds invited Aloha Got Soul to spin records for the launch party of their “Heavy Mellow” T-shirt series, hosted at About The Goods in Honolulu.We jumped at the opportunity, embracing the theme to curate a unique selection that showcases the seriously sublime soundscape of Hawaii’s musical palette: new age and folk from the 1980s; psych from the 1970s; hip hop from the 1990s and 2000s; funk and soul from the 1970s.

From the opening track of a subtly forward-thinking, slack key-inspired tune called “Melody Of Hanalei” (mellow-dy?), to the outro that competes for the rest of the world’s currently insatiable hunger for boogie — this mix is an excellent example of what weenjoy spinning when the canvas is wide open. Claymore Minds granted us full creative control to fill the room with the music we love. We couldn’t thank them enough for this.

Recorded live. All vinyl.

THE BOXCUTTER BROTHERS (Ayatollah & myself) have released three instrumental albums as a production duo….If you would have told me ten years ago that we would link up, forge a friendship, put out music, and build heavy on a regular basis I would call you a liar, but life has a funny way of magnetizing like-minded people…

AYATOLLAH is not only a talented beat smith, he is a down to earth cat that appreciates all of the elements of this art form (Just like myself)…We have a few surprises up our sleeves for 2016, but as of now it is top secret information….HAHAHAHAHA……Here is the sampler for our first outing BOXCUTTER BROTHER #1 if you missed it on the first go-round…

” Nuff Respect : Bates “

Screen Shot 2016-08-18 at 4.25.18 PM

At this point in time it’s damn near impossible to front on BATES….For the past 25 years he has showed and proved what dedication, determination, and supreme creativity is all about….What really catches my attention is that he almost never repeats his outlines, fills or color schemes (Which is a rarity these days)..Peep this documentary on BATES if you know what’s for you……

” Tenshun Wreckage “

Screen Shot 2016-08-17 at 10.33.42 AM

When it comes to abrasive drum wreckge – San Diego’s DJ  TENSHUN is in a hardcore league of his own….If your in the mood for some dusty, lo-fi percussion abuse, do yourself a favor and check in trooper – play at extremely loud volumes for maximum effect…

” Sure Shot”

Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 4.05.43 PM

Finally got around to listening to PSYCHO LES’s “Dank God” album that just dropped…In my opinion King Kong (featuring Sean P) takes the championship belt without a fraction of a doubt with outrageously sinister lines like, “Your a dick in the butt dude / dress like New Edition when they were in Krush Groove”….

” Psycho Les : Drop A Gem Podcast “

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 10.14.36 AM

Those DROP A GEM from dudes from Queens NYC are not playing when it comes to bringing the heat on their podcast….For instance, they recently caught up with one half of the BEAT NUTS (Psycho Les) for all types of jewelry that is worthy of your immediate attention…..

*You can also catch AYATOLLAH & I ( BOXCUTTER BROTHERS) on their show a few months back if you missed it the first go-round (FFWD TO THE 10 MINUTE MARK)…..

CHECK IN…..

” Brazilian Soul Power “

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 9.51.12 AM

A few years back I was the special guest on Dave Jones African Rhythm’s radio show at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada….Dave is a good dude with a very eclectic taste in music, he also has one of the illest record shops in Canada (Vinyl Records, you can cop from him online as well- look him up if you know what’s best for you)…

On one of his most recent broadcast, he takes it all the way to Brazil with all types of vinyl treats on deck…Don’t sleep…

” Highly Recommended Read “

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 9.31.01 AM

The Cabbage Patch, the Wop, Robocop, Running Man, Smurfrock, Gigolo, and all types of ridiculous flashbacks hit me when I read this excellent article by Maulud Sadiq…..Even though I fully understand where he is coming from with this well written piece, in my opinion, the only true Hip Hop dance is B-Boying, everything else is a diluted version…

Anyway, do yourself a favor and check this out in it’s entirety….

PEEP….

” New Shit On Deck “

Screen Shot 2016-08-09 at 9.29.30 AM

Maybe it’s just me, but Toronto rhyme slinger DANIEL SON sounds like a hybrid of WSG/GHOSTFACE/ACTION BRONSON/ with a tiny sprinkle of Roc Marciano….Even with that being said, on his latest offering “The Gunners” he drops a few joints that are definitely worthy of your attention….

HIP HOP BATTLE FIELD TOP PICK “Cigarellos – featuring Skuddy Ranks”….
