Koch Brothers – Koch Brothers

Here’s a self-titled debut from the new duo Koch Brothers. Truth be told, I know next to nothing about them (they reference Koch Industries and they are from Wichita it seems, but that’s about it) and there’s very little immediate info as far as I can see, but it’s a really dope release of wavy, but very musical, beats. It’s a free download so head over to Bandcamp and check it out.

HashFinger – Lessons (U.K.)

HashFinger is BACK, ladies and gentlemen! West Yorkshire’s finest takes a break from his wavy-electro bass to bring back that classic, classic jazzy HashFinger sound with Lessons. His instrumentals are typically dark and atmospheric, drums on point like a pack of needles with snare sbooming through behind a layer of dope scratches of vocal samples from Guru to 50s cinema. One of my favourite producers in the game at the moment, someone who has broken through that boom-bap with an original twist – which is a lot harder than it might sound. Listen and support.

Scifi Stu – Demo Beats (U.K.)

EDIT: Scifi Stu took down those demo beats from his Soundcloud, so instead enjoy his track ‘The Will’. It’s an oldie but a goldie. Apologies for the inconvenience.

 

I got a few notifications through yesterday of a some Soundcloud uploads from Scottish producer Scifi Stu, and it turns out he has uploaded a handful of nice demo beats. They are only short – about a minute long each – but each sound very nice with that classic Scifi Stu boom-bap goodness and definitely worth a listen as a collection. Check them all after the jump, and look out for the..

DJ Hellblazer – ‘Write.’ Vol. 1 (U.K.)

DJ Hellblazer has been busy since he initiated the Sinoptic International movement. Fresh from dropping the third installment of Pure Dopeness, here he delivers Write., the first in a series of releases intended to inspire. DJ Hellblazer delivers those dusty drums, the type that sound like they’ve been through alot, underlaying melancholic samples and melodic structures. There is an agenda with this tape though that goes beyond making some nice instrumentals. Write. wants you to write to it: whether you be an MC or a graffiti artist, write to this and send in your recordings or images of your..

The Jazz Jousters – Milestone: A Year Of Jazz Jousters

It’s difficult to believe that The Jazz Jousters have been going for a year now, but they have indeed reached that milestone and to celebrate they have, well, released Milestone. In case you don’t know, The Jazz Jousters are an international collective of beatsmiths (see after the jump for the entire list of contributors) born out of the Millenium Jazz movement, who, once a month, collate their respective abilities into a single themed release sample from a specific work of one of the classic jazz artists. So far, we’ve seen Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Charlie Parker and many..
