Something In The Way
Tricky feat. Francesca Belmonte
Pretty dark and a bit weird, perfect tricky. really nice vocals from francesca belmonte. a real nice chiller with a bit of melancholy attached.
Black Is Beautiful
Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland (Hype Williams)
A short but sweet lo-fi rendition of the cult classic Donnie & Joe Emerson track. Another chilled one.
Shut Shit Down!
Heavy hitter from the O.G. Kutmah, off his debut LP TROBB. real nice synth work on this complimented by banging 808s and a mashed up dilla soundbite. salute.
Tape One/Tape Two
Continuing the brashness with this riddim from young fathers, a really nice balance between a sweet melody and heavyness. doesn't get old.
One of my favourite beats this year, letherette always kill it, but this rendition/sample of the classic bobby caldwell - my flame tune is classic.
In Jah Hands (Dilla's Lament)
Beat Konducta Volume 5
Thank you J Dilla & Madlib.
Pretty abstract loopage by ahnnu, a strange and delightful one.
Shapes in Formation
I found this recently on my digital travels and it's been on rotation since. I find that the best music is music you can't really describe, you just have to listen. so hit play (:
The Spoils (feat Hope Sandoval)
The Spoils EP
This song is pretty awe-inspiring to be honest. i picked up the vinyl recently. hope sandoval's haunting vocal is nothing short of perfect on this and it shows that massive attack have still got it. a big inspiration. those strings >>>
Really nice synth work from flako here, a real drifter. big up.
