Lyle Horowitz – One Night Only

Roll up, and hear the wonderful beats of Lyle Horowitz for one night only… well… They’ll last a little longer than that. But Horowitz puts out a very nice, satisfying batch of beats for your audible enjoyment. I think it’s just pure samples, so straight drum breaks, soul cuts, you know the works. So dusty you can almost hear the vinyl. It would have been nice to hear more variation and development in the track but Horowitz has a nice ear for sure. Lyle’s been featured many times on Word Is Bond, and you can check them..

TonyLeTigre – Hard Drive Survivors (U.K.)

A dope instrumental album, full of groovy samples and banging drums. TonyLeTigre is part of The Mud Collective, what turns out to be a real dope association of Hip Hop beatmakers and rhymers, so make sure you check out their Bandcamp.

As for this album, well Tony’s harddrive was wiped leaving just these tracks. But they’re grrrrrrrrrrreat, so download them.

Question & Kidragon – Dirty Jazz (Mix)

Question and Kidragon present a very nice mix for your ears, full of some of the nicest Jazz you’ll hear. It starts off with some Lucky Thompson – the sample for E-Rule’s Synopsis no less – and takes you from there. Listen to the first five minutes in the post, and download the full hour after the jump…

Dave Sparkz & wun two – Natural Selection (Switzerland & Germany)

Holy damnnn, I shouldn’t have been sleeping on this. wun two, a German producer, is (and this is a pretty bold statement) one of the nicest producers ever to touch the boards. No one has those jazzy loops down like he does really. At least, not in his style. His assortment of remixes and beattapes need to be checked out. With this beattape he joins up with Swiss beatmaker Dave Sparkz, who’s definately nice also and I’ll have to note him down for the future.

L’Orange – Alone feat. Blu

EDIT: updated with download track

Sacré bleu! L’Orange est un musicien de génie! Aight I’ll stop there before I butcher Carmineletta’s mother tongue. But my word this is dope. A track from his upcoming album (released 20th November) L’Orange is served in slices, a dreamy, jazz number, with the otherworldly Blu joining him on vocals. With Blu’s silky, ethereal flow, this duo is a match made in heaven. You’re gonna need more than your five-a-day with this one so make sure you listen after the jump…

Dela – Unreleased Jazz Covers (c. 2007-2008)

French producer Dela is a name that needs no introduction around here. In between releasing the superb Translation Lost (read our album review) earlier this year on vinyl and working on new material, he’s recently taken to Soundcloud uploading some rough covers of classics that similarly should need no introduction. Masterful work by one of the genres most promising artist – I know I’ll be keeping these in heavy rotation this weekend.

ALBUM REVIEW: Karriem Riggins – Alone Together

I didn’t think I’d heard any of Karriem Riggins‘ work when I was asked to review this, his first, album. Turns out that if you’ve listened to a Common album you’ve probably heard him. My closest audio encounter with him seems to be that he finished Dilla’s posthumously released album The Shining. Judging by this album, Dilla’s mother picked exactly the right person to complete the work on it.
