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.

NOGYMX – “Need You”
Galway, Ireland based producer NOGYMX (pronounced no-gimmicks) comes through with an exotic layered release titled “Need You”.

Glimlip, Leave – “Yucca”
Glimlip is far from a newbie on TWIb and has always gifted us unique sounds from time to time. On his new effort titled “Yucca”, he blends the warm sound of the classic rhodes with groovy off-beat drums to make a solid laid back jam that would relax your soul and then some.
Rob Blake – “Made Different”
Producer Rob Blake shares his new instrumental single titled “Made Different” with us. A very cinematic piece built on gripping orchestral strings, hard-hitting boom-bap styled drums, and ominous vocal samples to complete the cypher. “Made Different” was recently used in a short film by J&B Whisky telling the inspiring life story of South African entertainer DJ SBU. “Made Different” is taken from Blake’s album, ‘Soul Funk and Electric’, out now.

Bio: From the second release from Luchito Carrera, a mysterious tune that encompasses electronic, and hip hop roots.
Duneboi – “don’t reach”
Duneboi returns with his unique style of malleable production on his new release titled “don’t reach”. He blends a bit of electronic and organic elements on this one while keeping it mellow for the most part.
Slap Serif – “Almost Lost”
Slap Serif‘s new release “Almost Lost” samples a classic Gil Scott Heron piece and switches it into something new. While the majority of the classic song is solemn, Serif takes it into another zone on an upbeat note.
“Almost Lost” is a track off of Slap Serif’s new surprise album ‘You Should Feel This’, a project that combines hip-hop, house, and a crate of obscure records into a fully-realized vision.
