We are back for another exciting edition of the Top 5 submissions of the week. As we always do, you never know what you would find on the list as we do the dirty job going through piles of submissions from across the globe. In the immortal words of the late great street poet Lamont Coleman, “I done took up enough time” so let’s get right to it.
Deephead – Drugs 2
Deephead is a new group coming out of Montreal featuring the talents of producer Skin Deep (Smoke Dza, Juju of the Beatnuts) and rapper/producers Freddie de Andrade and Jay Lindsay of cannonhead. MFG II is the title of their forthcoming album. Drugs 2 is the name of the jam that sets all that shit off. Built off a sample of Lil’ Kim’s “Drugs” and anchored by a solo performance from Freddie de Andrade, Drugs 2 was the spark that inspired the upcoming LP.
FReECOol – STRATA FAREAST
Freecool runs up on the list with this beast of a beat. The twists and turns are unexpected and make for a very interesting listen. Dopeness as usual.
Hugh Lee- Permagrin (Prod By High Klassified)
Chi town emcee Hugh Lee contracts Montreal producer High Klassified for the enthralling Permagrin. Sonically this feels like being pulled into a warp zone, off kilter and engaging to say the least
P.R – What Is Going On (ft. Kenji & Substantial)
Producer P.R hits the list with this chilled soulful jam titled What’s Going On and brings in Substantial and Kenji along for the ride. Well hit the play button and get into it.

What’s Going On is taken from the upcoming release on Chillhop Records called “Appetizers”, out the 2nd of November, 2015. Check out more info here – chillhoprecords.com/
Marco Villa : Mellifluous
Wrapping up the list is an upcoming producer who goes by the moniker, Marco Villa. His entry is a 7 track body of work titled “Mellifluous”, an instrumental tape that taps into jazz, soul, hip-hop with a calm/lounge-ish intent.
