Tall Black Guy “Make It For Forever And Ever”
TBG has some of the best chops. So much soul, so on point. Had this on repeat all morning.

Air Kalo “Midtown”
Heads nods here… it has that grit and soul. Channels Kaytranada, Dilla, and even some Dust at points. We’ll be looking for more from this producer.

OtterNotBe “Who Am I”
Future boom bap from American producer OtterNotBe. Some nice jazzy overtones on this one too.

Raphy “Why I Hate Myself”
This one has some funk to it. Nice dusty sampling here from Raphy. Not sure why it’s given this title because it feels decidedly upbeat. Stay until the end. Maybe that’s our clue?

Beat Rabbi releases final project Mazel Tov Cocktail

The bad news… Beat Rabbi has retired from beat making. The good news… Mazel Tov Cocktail is here via Illect Recordings! It’s an appropriate send off to one of our favorite producers. 31 tracks including a Deepspace5 posse cut.

Beat Rabbi shares, “I assume other producers have been in a similar situation where they have a number of beats they really like that have been repeatedly passed over by rappers for years and they think, I really would like to get these joints out there and heard so people know all the kinds of sounds and styles I’ve experimented with, even if a rapper doesn’t want to rhyme on it. That’s how this project started, though it expanded beyond just that. But being that I hung up the beat making trade years ago, I needed the right person to edit, mix and master these beats – and spice them up to make them presentable. DJ Sean P is that dude for me – I have so much respect for his ear, style and talent and was blessed that enthusiastically signed up for the task. So hear it is – some Beat Rabbi as you have and haven’t heard him before, topped off with some Sean P funk.

J. Rhodan releases “Their, There”

J. Rhodan is back with another new drop, Their, There. 5 tracks, his signature sound.

Had shares his inspiration for the project, “Music can be a comfort. It can also be a timestamp. Certain songs have the ability to take us back to past memories, while consoling us at the same time.

“Their, There” is both. From me, for me (and you). Each song and sample used in the making of this project, served as comfort for me.

It’s also an ode to the artists whom I’ve sampled. These were moments in their artistry that were pivotal in their journey.

Art is an avenue that gives us the ability to grasp emotion from a moment, hone it’s inspiration and allow it to live beyond it’s inception.

I pray that you can vibe with me. Thanks for listening!”

Audio: Their, There

TADASHI “Manwitdaplan”
Spacey groove on this one. Nice soulful sounds. One of our favorites from 2018.

Xavier[EXS22] “She Makes Me Feel Like…”
The artist’s description sums it up perfectly…

If you are looking for a song that features a happy and calming atmospheric hip-hop/jazz-hop style tune that has a euphoric and calming feel to it, my original instrumental production ‘She Makes Me Feel Like…’ would fit well with what you are looking for.

Always nice to hear repeat submissions from past favorites. Radicule drops another one on us. Oasis is trappy and soulful. It feels right.

This one is perfect for your travel soundtrack. Mellow soulful vibes. The track draws inspiration from Teck-Zilla’s frequent travels.

Benhurzz “Artesian”
Delightfully headnoddable track from UK based producer. A calming jazz-infused trap/hip-hop lo-fi instrumental. Had this on repeat for a while now.

Missiles Over Moscow “Right Before Midnight”
Dope chill hop vibes on this one. Jazzy and soulful, it’s an easy listen and left us wanting to hear more. Shouts to our friends at Stereofox.com.

Pablo Zuazo “Macaco Nu Jazz”
From the opening notes, I knew I was going to dig this. Really dope rhodes piano on this one that sets the mood just right. Looking forward to hearing Pablo’s next track.

C.O.W. “$hanghai Mone¥ EP”
This was unexpected. A pretty captivating listen with all the twists and turns. They produce and play mostly instrumental electronic music, which spans from obscure jazz interludes to electrified club beats. It’s tough to nail down an apples to apples comparison but it’s somewhere in between Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke.

VIOLENTLYILL “Clairvoyance (feat. DJ Koncept)”
This is dope. Video is awesome too. Ambient chilled out dreamy melodic hip-hop. DJ Koncept features on the cuts.

Product_90 “Get Tha Butta”
Not much better than hearing an impressive beat from a producer you’ve never heard of. Really dig how this one continues to build. Keeps the track moving.

Thelonious Martin “They Don’t Know (instrumental)”
Coalmine Records sends over an instrumental from the Chicago-based producer, Thelonious Martin. You may recognize the familiar sample.

Aurka “Lotus”
Aurka redeems a day of mediocre submissions with this gem. Lotus features smooth instrumentation and great arc on this one. Reminds me a bit of Bonobo.

Mild Surprise “Outdoors No More”
Nice lo-fi instrumental hip-hop track here. Digging the sample here.

Michum “Ran Away”
German producer sends a mellowed out soulful instrumental “Ran Away”. The vocal sample draws out fond old memories of good times. A nice track to relax to.

J Poetic “Xtian”
Lo fi hip-hop instrumental created to celebrate the memory of the recent passing of a youth in Portland by the name of Christian Chaparro.

Balance Both (Imperial Remix instrumental)
Imperial drops a dope remix for this Abdominal single featuring Chali 2na of Jurassic 5.
