DIBIA$E – LOfi Theater

It’s always a good day when Mr Dibia$e aka half-man half-404 aka Green Llama Rep delivers a new beat tape, his signature soulful offbeat sound always sure to brighten ones eardrums. LOfi Theater just seems to have been a nice collection of beats he had stored, and a reminder the man is still around. Always good to hear from one of the greats, a link between the old school boom-bap and current LA beat scene, full of tight grooves.

Curly Castro – Tin Tin (prod. Steel Tipped Dove) (World Around Records Single Series)

Halloween week’s single from World Around Record‘s current series is a suitably phantasmic track by Steel Tipped Dove of eerie instrumentation echoing on the other side of the twilight which, incidentally, is where Curly Castro is likely forming his chilling flow and rhyming classic Eddie Murphy quotables from.  At just under a minute-and-a-half it’s almost an apparition of a track, but “Tin Tin” is top tier stuff and a full length on this level would be something, particularly if there was a track conceptualised around “yukanes o yukanes”.

DJ JS-1 – 110 Percent ft. Breeze Brewin’, Homeboy Sandman & Kyle Rapps

Dj JS-1 gets a home run with this horn driven gem. Bringing together Breeze Brewin, Homeboy Sandman and Kyle Rapps was a brilliant idea even as their styles differ. A beautiful blend of styles if I may add as each participant plays their part diligently(the title says it all). This is a sure banger from start to finish!!!

Cop the full length project It Is What It Isn’t HERE

Ren Revolution – The Emcee Memoirs : A Cinematic LP (Trailer)

Ren Revolution is a visual art organization based in NY and while this is the first time I’ve been exposed to their work I must say this is something I definitely want to view in its full glory. The Emcee Memoirs : A Cinematic, is a collaboration with Asha Hadiyah, Joseph “Manifesto” Golden, Josiah “Siah” Nimely and Word Is Bond regular Lafayette Stokely. If you are thinking this is just going to be another mixtape then think again; this is a trailer to the upcoming “visual” LP with the aformentioned artists playing specific roles. The trailer doesn’t..

WIB Presents – “Just One Record” #41 – Hannibal Stax

For the latest episode of Just One Record, the team met Hannibal Stax, a Gang Starr foundation member, who last year released the great album Seize the Day last year with producer Marco Polo. He was in France for a nice show at Le Batofar with Union Blak from Effiscienz when we caught up with him… and when asked the ‘Just One Record’ question, Hannibal made a very old school choice!
