Bakoda – Kids Never Grow Up (Germany)

Bakoda a.k.a Evan Awake specialises in these heartwarming instrumentals, and Kids Never Grow Up is no exception. It’s always quite refreshing, I think, to hear an instrumental and draw an emotion from it (as opposed to feeling a groove I guess), and from this, man I felt so nostalgic. Unfortunately, as much as I hate to say it kids do in fact have to grow up, so I gotta return to job searching, but hey I hope this takes you back to your teens if only for a second.

MYK & Shirosky – Adaptation (South Korea)

A very nice free release from Cult Classic Records. Shirosky claims to be the first female South Korean producer, and while that’s a little outlandish (surely some other female has produced Hip-Hop in South Korea) there’s no doubting she’s got some made nice skills. Melodic, intelligently crafted beats are joined by MYK’s rhymes, who was born in the US but moved out to South Korea himself, hooking up with Shirosky to make this nice music.

Jonwayne – Watching Me feat. Quelle and Zeroh

A butter track. A nice jazzy loop runs throughout the three minutes or so this last, and the three MCs let their respective flows soothe the soul. Some of the smoothest flows you’ll probably hear on a track. Always nice to hear some new Zeroh and Jonwayne. Go peep some old Jonwayne infact.

Long Arm – The Roots (40 Winks Remix)

I am straight tripping right now. The first released bonus track from the reissued, remastered The Branches: Deluxe Version, the genius creation from Russian producer Long Arm. It is, without doubt, one of the best albums I have ever heard, an instrumental Jazz-beats instrumental, full of intricate sampling, complex drumming, atmosphere, I mean it really is sensational and deserving of a remaster if I ever heard one. If you’re a sucker like me, you can even go and pre-order the transparent vinyl. Date of release is 14th of December. Have a peep through the archives to see what makes Long Arm..
