Various – Rubble Kings (The Album) (Deluxe Gatefold 2LP+MP3)
Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Various – Rubble Kings (The Album) (Deluxe Gatefold 2LP+MP3)

Image: 1601325 The album is a soundtrack of music inspired by the movie Rubble Kings and is out globally on digital and physical formats on January 15, 2016 via Mass Appeal Records. Produced by longtime Run The Jewels collaborator Little Shalimar, the album features appearances from Bun B, Ghostface Killah, Killer Mike, Tunde Adebimpe, Mr Muthaf*kin eXquire, Boldy James, Cuz Lightyear, Ka and Roxiny, in addition to Run The Jewels.
Scoring the film was the first time Little Shalimar set out to make period music. Half of the music on this album was taken directly from the score and is heavily indebted to ‘60s and ‘70s soul and funk music. For the new tunes Shalimar sampled joints from the score and created new beats out of them.
“The messages of hope and self-determination from the film are so applicable to modern times that we felt it was really important to include rappers and singers that young people check today. I’m in the fortunate position to work with a bunch of really great artists on a regular basis. I called on my friends and their friends to contribute vocals as project. I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.”
Both the CD and LP version include an iron-on patch of the Rubble Kings plus a download code for the Rubble Kings documentary.

L’Orange & Mr. Lif – The Life & Death Of Scenery
Friday, September 30th, 2016 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on L’Orange & Mr. Lif – The Life & Death Of Scenery

Image: 1606601 North Carolina-born producer & veteran Boston MC f/contributions from Gonjasufi, Akrobaktik, Q-Bert, Chester Watson, & narrated by comedian Wyatt Cenac!

George Orwell once prophesized, “if you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.” The latest EP from L’Orange & Mr. Lif, The Life and Death of Scenery, conceives a chimerical “lighthearted dystopia” just far enough from modernity to breathe easily, but close enough to make you consider relocating to that cave in the forest. In this collaboration with the eccentric North Carolina producer, L’Orange, Lif imagines an adjacent future called the “last society,” where culture has been obliterated and survival has taken precedence over art.

Released through a partnership between Adult Swim and Mello Music Group, the duo’s latest opus opens with one of four addresses from “The Narrator” (played by The Daily Show’s Wyatt Cenac). These Big Brother missives capture a world where the, “books are all burned, the vinyl has been melted, and the remaining art catapulted over the city walls.” The mere act of whistling is cause for the guillotine. It’s the rap analogue to Fahrenheit 451, 1984, or a Brave New World, where the Soma is uncomfortably soothing and the sunshine eerily abundant.

The former Def Jux legend inhabits on the role of The Scribe, frantically showing the post-apocalyptic survivors the power of what’s been lost. It attacks those who value disposable art over the timeless, it articulates the necessity of preserving culture, it lampoons the absurdity of attempting to destroy one of the most immutable qualities in mankind.

In L’Orange’s words, the collaboration is “a negotiation of influences without compromise.” You can hear the producer’s trademark alchemy of classic boom-rap with glitchy fuzz, a compressed whimsy that slaps against somber scythe-like piano lines, ominous spaghetti western licks, and celestial saxophone licks.

Lif spits staccato bars in double-time, adeptly slicing through the beats like banned books to a shredder. He’s joined on “Antique Gold” by the 19-year old monotone samurai, Chester Watson. Gonjasufi’s banshee yelp makes “Strange Technology” even more resonant. Insight bombards on “Five Lies About the World Outside.” The legendary turntablist Q-Bert contributes cuts on “The Scribe.” While Akrobatik, Lif’s longtime partner in The Perceptionists, pops up twice to exhibit their almost telepathic tag-team chemistry.

The rapping is virtuosic. The production is sumptuous and scene setting. But what sticks is those cumulative effects: the fantastic imagination of this foreign but familiar world, the importance of illuminations in a world that values cold logic, the sly humor of winking oracles, and inexorable fear that this could be a reality—should we continue down our current path.

Ghostface Killah – Adrian Younge Pres. 12 Reasons To Die II (7inchBox
Thursday, August 27th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Ghostface Killah – Adrian Younge Pres. 12 Reasons To Die II (7inchBox

Image: 1599193 Adrian Younge and Ghostface Killah’s latest collaboration, 12 Reasons To Die II, is now available as a deluxe 7 inch box set! The set includes six singles in full color jackets with two of the singles being both picture discs and Serato controllers!

Fans who have been anticipating a sequel to 2013’s acclaimed first installment can rejoice: Adrian Younge’s and Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Reasons To Die II has finally arrived.
To up the ante this time around, Ghostface has added a very important lyrical sparring partner to the mix: Raekwon. The chemistry that was cemented two decades ago on Rae’s classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx is as strong as ever, clearly heard on five out of the album’s 13 songs. And on the topic of chemistry, album executive producer and Wu-Tang patriarch The RZA returns to Part II as the story’s narrator.
“Having Ghost and Raekwon together on multiple tracks is almost like cheating, because they fit so well together,” laughs album mastermind and prime mover Adrian Younge.
“Their chemistry is undeniable and they clearly make each other better. RZA established the template for those guys working together decades ago, I’m merely adding my two cents to the legacy.”
Where the first installment of Twelve Reasons To Die was based in 1960s Italy – detailing the machinations of the feared DeLuca crime family – Part II inhabits the grimy streets of mid-1970s New York City. Descendants of the DeLucas are running the city, but a powerful, younger crime syndicate is percolating, commanded by black gangster Lester Kane (personified by Raekwon).
As Kane’s power grows, he takes on the DeLucas, and a bloodbath ensues. Kane has always known the legend of Tony Starks, who was killed by the DeLucas in Italy and whose remains were partially used to create twelve vinyl records. When played back in the “old world,” the Ghostface Killer rose and destroyed the Italian faction. This plays into the story’s conclusion at the end of Part II.
The storyline for Part II is vividly brought to life with the help of Younge’s never-endingly evocative and unique brand of cinematic, psychedelic soul. The music – on which Younge himself plays upwards of 10 instruments on certain songs – was recorded strictly on analog tape, to bring out the true grit of the ‘70s era that provides the Twelve Reasons backdrop.
“This time around I wanted to make a statement with a darker, heavier approach to the composition and sonic landscape,” Younge explains. And regarding his producer / artist relationship with the legendary Wu-Tang MC who is on the marquee, he says, “When I composed the first Twelve Reasons album, I hadn’t spent a lot of personal time with Ghostface. It was constructed purely on my knowledge of him with me as a fan. This time around, the album is based on what I learned from touring with him in 2013. We shared a lot of great ideas and since then have been discussing how we could make the next installment even better.”
Twelve Reasons To Die II is another heavy feather in the caps of all involved, especially Younge and Ghost, who again poured their skills and intellect into this dramatic and engaging tale. It all fits perfectly into the Wu-Tang family tree as well as Younge’s always-expanding musical universe, which now proudly relies on Linear Labs to house it.

Zara McFarlane – Angie La La (Yoruba Soul Mixes)
Friday, January 3rd, 2014 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Zara McFarlane – Angie La La (Yoruba Soul Mixes)

Image: 1586236 The first music to be lifted from her forthcoming sophomore album, Zara McFarlane drops ‘Angie La La’ in December 2013. In many ways an underground cult classic, Zara’s reworking of this Jamaican psych gem by Nora Dean features former Brownswood Bubblers alumnus and New Yorker Leron Thomas on trumpet and vocals. Recorded at Matthew Halsall’s 80 Hertz studio in Manchester, it’s firmly rooted in swing territory, driven by the killer rhythm section of Luke Flowers (drums) and Gavin Barras (double bass). Zara herself reclines into the groove with consummate grace, her vocals blessed at once with crystalline clarity and warmth.

Consistently one of our favourite producers from the house realm, the truly legendary Osunlade aka Yoruba Soul applies his golden touch to ‘Angie La La’, crafting an exquisitely sensitive and soulful groove founded on booming kicks and handclaps.

Zara McFarlane inhabits a less trodden musical landscape. Her performance brings to mind a vocal world more akin to early Nina Simone and Roberta Flack’s ‘First Take’, than to Ella and the great American songbook. Many of her tunes possess power and an underlying spirituality reminiscent of the “spiritual jazz” movement of 70’s black America. Indeed, the fact that McFarlane was selected to perform alongside jazz star Gregory Porter at last year’s breathtaking Nina Simone tribute concerts (in the Netherlands) makes total sense. Like Porter, Zara is a thoughtful, uniquely engaging artist who combines the intricacies of jazz with a deep soulfulness that seamlessly blends multiple black influences.

More Like Trees – Roots, Shoots & Leaves
Thursday, May 9th, 2013 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on More Like Trees – Roots, Shoots & Leaves

Image: 1577850 More Like Trees is a 3 piece acoustic act, drawing on a range of musical influences to create ‘Strum & Bass’: acoustic dance music, combining traditional and innovative techniques to create fresh twists on modern genres. With front man Josh Whitehouse on classical Guitar, Matt Whitehouse on Cajon and Lachlan Radford on Double Bass, the core line-up is regularly complimented by collaborations with the best underground talent the world has to offer.

Effortlessly combining elements of Flamenco, Drum & Bass, Classical, Hip Hop, Indie, Dance and Folk, they make their own musical rules, consistently surprising and delighting fans of all genres.

History:

More Like Trees were officially born on March 10th 2011, effortlessly selling out their debut gig at Favela Chic. Their former band, Fran & Josh, was tipped for greatness: it took a slight change in line up and band name to realise the full potential of Josh’s song-writing ability.

In Spring 2011, they began developing their portfolio by recording an album with Tali (the world no.1 female D&B MC) – an acoustic reworking of her current D&B/Dubstep album, ‘Dark Days, High Nights’ released on Audioporn. They performed this at ‘Sun & Bass’ in Sardinia, making them the first live band ever booked for the festival. http://www.audiopornrecords.com/news?id=5373 Summer 2011 was spent touring the festival circuit, largely as part of the Chai Wallah stage, but also supporting Billy Bragg (where by Billy’s own admission, they stole the show).

Following the festival season, collaborations continued with The Local Posse, a collective of like-minded musicians from different backgrounds led by US loop-pedaller, Joe Driscoll and including core members Lazy Habits, MC
Dizraeli, Klumzy Tung (Beardyman’s MC), Bellatrix (world no1 female beatboxer), Reeps One ( two-times UK beat box champ), John Fairhurst and The Drop.www.thelocalposse.com

Being accepted into this circle of seasoned and acclaimed artists served as a training ground with a steep learning curve – they rapidly rose to the challenge to hold their own alongside much bigger names, quickly increasing not only their fan base and vastly improving their stage craft in the process.

It was also through The Local Posse that they met John Hendicott, the genius producer behind their debut album, ‘Roots, Shoots & Leaves, which is due for release in September 2012. http://johnhendicott.com/
