It won’t be fair not to show love to the cats that work behind the boards. Cats whose soundscapes help push hip-hop to loft heights. So in the same vein, this weekly list sheds light on budding and even established producers who continue to push the envelope for the culture. So sit back relax and get familiar with these producers.
Remember, don’t forget to support them by sharing their works.
Radicule. – Throwaway Dunks (G-Leaguee.)
Radicule kicks off this weekend’s list with a solid soothing track “Throwaway Dunks 9G-Leaguee)” off his Sports theme instrumental project ‘HiiiGHLIGHT_REEL.01’. It has a dreamy, nostalgic vibe going on and it’s quite short too. It serves as the final track of the aforementioned project closing it with a sobering cool down to the fur-lined slaps that precede it.

E Dot – Mixed Up.
E Dot comes through with a soul sample flip that packs a solid groove behind it. He calls it “Mixed up” for good reason as the vocals go into a ping-pong like delay vibe at some parts. Pretty dope as expected.
ToMC – HA2DC!PHER.
Producer ToMC drops the sophomore release from his Friday instrumental release. He calls this release “HA2DC!pher” and blends classic hiphop vocals over a cinematic backdrop and heavy drums to match.
The release is from his upcoming instrumental album, Ink Dripperz: Beatz for Lyrical Peepz.
Overall, ToMC’s style possesses a raw fidelity that holds true to Hip Hop’s original boom bap flavor. He has a distinctive sound that provokes movement and inspiration, which he casually delivers with street-wise swagger and grimy finesse.
Mansa Obi – YRNRW.
Multi-talented producer/artist Mansa Obi delivers a left-field release he calls “YRNRW”. He blends a smooth soundscape with chopped vocals from several sources to make one cool, soothing beat.
After surviving a Thirty-Five foot fall with his close friend August 16th, 2016. Four surgeries and a year of rehab later; Mansa Obi has emerged from the ashes to finish his life’s work. Known for his creation of Authentic Bounce (not to be confused with “Classic” Bounce) seductive melodies, blunt–commentary and creation of the bass-less genre. Mansa hopes to continue to push the cultures forward sonically with his album self-titled “Mansa”.
Big O – UNCERTAiNTY.
The track is taken from his sophomore album “iNSTABiLiTY”
NOTTR – CYANIDE.
Nottr taps the spirit of ODB on this new cut he calls “Cyanide”. He flips a myriad of vocals sample to drive home his point and the off-beat boombap style works well too.
Blue Realization – Longing
Blue Realization is Oscar Ota’s solo music project based in Toronto. The new release titled “Longing” is soothing, dreamy and quite alluring. The layered instrumentation and soft drums do blend well together. Hit the play button and get familiar.
