Ackryte: Solve For X [Beat Tape]


We're truly digging this recent return to cassettes (quite obviously, not because the format was more superb). Perhaps due to our recent travels and the overtly organic experiences that came along with them we are pining for the past, all of a sudden more aware of just how far we have moved away from the melodies, materials, and moods of the beginnings of whatever we are calling our culture these days. With that being said, Ackryte is offering his latest FutureScience release in cassette and digital disc formats on Bandcamp.

Presented by LRG and Complex Magazine, Life Colors from legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff is a sonic representation that thinking differently and aiming to change the status quo is something that never goes out of style. Harnessed over 40 tracks that spans both the old and new - including tracks from the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, Santigold, Slum Village, J Cole, the Pharcyde and many more - the iconic DJ serves as a willing tour guide to bridge the gap between black and white thinking and a colorful renaissance.

DJ Jedi: Blowout Breaks (Original Digable Planets Samples) [Beat Tape]


Nineties jazz cats Digable Planets are a natural selection for a 'these are the breaks' collection, and here DJ Jedi lets it all bang out with over 70 minutes of the group’s sample sources. Southern California’s Jedi served as the tour DJ when the Digs recently reunited and he nonchalantly cuts their building blocks together. If the Digable Planets are meant for the sunset hours and Butterfly’s soul-rock Cherrywine project is for the blurry past-midnight, then Blowout Breaks for breakfast will get you right for the rest of day. Hearing Shuggie Otis’s 'Island Letter' slip into Skull Snaps’ 'It’s A New Day' is even better than eggs and bacon on an English muffin with green hot sauce.

FunkyDL: Sometimes I Have To Wonder... [EP]


Following the success of both Back To Frank and Back To Rap, where he took on the giant audio of original Amy Winehouse joints, Funky DL brings it back with the follow up in his 'Funky DL Samples' series... with his FREE downloadable 'Sometimes I Have To Wonder' EP.

This time, DL takes on the music from the legendary Motown musician Stevie Wonder and gets busy in the studio meshing his production skills and rhymes with Stevie’s classic 60's and 70's sound. 'My Cherie Amour' (1969), 'He's Misstra Know-It-All' (1974), 'Thank You Love' (1966) and 'Please Don't Go' (1974) provided the landscape for DL to do his thing...

'I've always messed with Stevie breaks', DL states 'But I have always been a bit more obscure with it, to the point you'd probably never know by the time I get chopping, but this was the time to be obvious to (of course) celebrate the magic that is Stevie'.

Apparently Funky DL had enough beats to turn this into a full album but felt that could be a possibility later on down the line.

This project should nicely tie listeners over until Funky DL's next album entitled 'NANE' drops in either late 2012 or early 2013 (to which there is a snippet of the track 'I'm a Beast' included once you download the full "samples Stevie Wonder" EP )

Funky DL has remained one of the most consistent artists to do it in hip-hop, with quality release after quality release, and this EP is no exception.

Look out for the 2 bonus tracks... firstly the 'Rocky Balboa' inspired 'Only Just a Matter of Time' feat. Louise Bagan sampling from Bill Conti's 'Going the Distance'... and the soulful 'Another Girl (Gods Other Daughter)' featuring Dyanna Fearon and sampling 'Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions 'The Girl I Find'.

Also, 'Another Girl' is actually the follow up track to the BBE records released 'Gods Daughter' from DL's 'The Interview Album' (2009).

Earlier this year I took a trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While in town, I was no doubt searching for the perfect beat!

This mix is put together entirely from records purchased during that trip. On this podcast you’ll hear some of my favorite Brazilian artists, classics and versions in Soul, Jazz, Samba, MPB and more!
