Joseph Jacobs – Midnight Mist

Real nice track from Joseph Jacobs. Typically a producer, this is 100% composition, and it’s some real melodic, mellow jazz. Nice stuff.

Broke/ – C91

New some ish from Cascade Records affiliate Broke/. The producer puts down his sample-laden beats, all short joints but some mellow chill vibe, fitted with filters and jazz and all you would need for a sunny afternoon such as this. Download after the jump…

DRTYDRDZ – Frozen Hearts

Introducing: DRTYDRDZ. He’s an unusual producer, I suppose focusing on that kinda smokey, jazzy, lo-fi vibe with the spaces filled by chops, but I don’t know really how to describe it. I’ve only been listening to him for a few days but I’ve heard a few of his tracks, and they’re all nice, but for me, this is the nicest; the sweetest guitar cut – those with knowledgable eyes will recognise the man featured in the photo above – and some banging drums to match it. He has a LOAD of stuff on his Bandcamp which is worth checking..

Arrested Development – Standing At The Crossroads (Album Review)

Recently I’ve been diggin around in my record collection and listening to some classic albums. I’ve listened to BDP’s ‘Edutainment’, ED O.G. & Da Bulldogs ‘Life Of A Kid In The Ghetto’, Brand Nubian’s ‘All For One’ and PE’s ‘It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back’ amongst others. As much as they are all musically wonderful albums they also have something this else in common. They are all albums that pay more than lip service to social commentary. You might go as far as saying that that they are all message raps.
