Strypez – We Get High prod. C-Sick

Strypez blazes (literally) over this classic Michael Franks sample laced together by producer C-Sick (taken off his beat tape The Beat Tape). There’s also a nice reprise done by Strypez as his animated flow seems to get sharper by the minute.

Cutta Chase x Daryl Donald – Clockwork (U.K.)

The duo formed by MC Cutta Chase and producer Daryl Donald drop this mellow, ethereal 15-tracker called Clockwork. Cutta Chase keeps it gully through and through with his deep baritone vocal stylings, which sit perfectly with the soulful, jazzy soundscapes created by by Daryl Donald.  The chemistry displayed by these two is undeniable.

Flying Lotus – Coronus, The Terminator

Flying Lotus lets loose ‘Coronus, The Terminator’, another track from his upcoming album You’re Dead – and it’s absolutely spectacular. It starts off with a mournful series of reversed instruments, before sending into a majestic body of deep bass and gospel choir. I literally can’t put in to words about what ‘Coronus, The Terminator’ invokes within me; just that I can only wonder how you make music quite like that. The dude is a genius.

You’re Dead is out in about two or three weeks. Buy it.

His sudden death has shocked many of the underground hip-hop community, who knew him as a warm and wise individual who was generous with his time, knowledge and expertise. Here is a written tribute from Guillermo Antonini of the Collab Projekt. This has been reproduced with his permission, originally posted here.
