Like – 94.7 the WAVE

Like, from Californian trio Pac Div, presents us with some fresh funk called ‘94.7 the WAVE’. There’s not much to say but to sit back and enjoy the reinterpretation of these glamorous 80s sounds.

FloFilz – Rooftops (Germany)

German producer FloFilz has been blazing a hot trail on Word Is Bond for a while now and has just released his debut LP Metronom. The 18-track project is a blitzkrieg of enchanting jazz vibes, layered dreamy sounds and hard drums (at least, when the situation calls for them). You won’t wanna miss this I tell ya.

In the meantime enjoy this brilliant visual of ‘Rootops’ (taken off side B of the Metronom LP)

Khalil Perry – GODS

Khalil Perry first hit my radar with his spiritual-themed joint ‘Meditation‘ but that was a while back; now he returns with the upbeat cut ‘GODS’. Throughout the song Khalil makes a handful of references to ancient Greek Titans and other celestial figures over a cinematic backdrop, and his flow is pretty sharp without feeling forced.

Interesting to me. but what do y’all think?

WIB Rap Radio – Exclusive EMC Interview

EMC  is a super-group composed of Stricklin, Punchline, Wordsworth, and the legendary Masta Ace. They just put out an E.P. called The Turning Point to help whet our appetites for the full length project that drops later this year.

These guys truly are “Experts Making Classics.” I saw them last time they were in town and it was one of the best hip-hop shows I have ever seen. They smoothly transitioned between all of the different variations of their group and played some of their favourite jams from their solo and other collaborative projects. Last week’s show..

Walker Wear Love Note Series #2 – The Barrel Brothers

Coming back on the scene has been a real experience. People often ask me why I decided to relaunch Walker Wear and the most practical answer would be because I had an itch creatively, I thought the timing was right and wished to extend my portfolio. That would be true, but the most important factor is that I wanted to be a part of the process to bridge the gap between generation x and y.

Music and fashion have always been two of the biggest forms of self-expression. Music can take..

Joob 森本 – Don’t Say It Enuff

I stumbled across this beat from Joob 森本 yesterday, and although he’s someone I’ve been aware of for a few weeks now (he has a really cool album on Bandcamp called cycl:ical, it’s very electronica-based not so much hip-hop, but good all the same) I’ve not really explored his work – to my detriment. So perusing through his Soundcloud I found a bunch of awesome jazzy beats (including some Ackryte collabs), but my favourite must be ‘Don’t Say It Enuff’. It’s so fresh, carried by lush strings, gentle bass and distorting filter – and the way the chord sequence..

Signif – Friction

Signif‘s new LP Friction came like a thief in the night as I have been patiently waiting for this for quite some time now.  The Radio Raheem-laced single ‘Late Night Jazz‘, which dropped mid last year, is still fresh in my mind and peeping the entire body of work shows the incredible amount of dedication Signif put into this. She holds her own effortlessly throughout the entire 13 track project, weaving several topical issues together while keeping the lyrical blade as sharp as ever.

She definitely brings her A-game to this project, and the producers she employs build a solid sonic..
