Bambu: The Lean Sessions [EP]

 photo bambu_lean_zpsc7fa9c9a.png

From Bambu:

Track number 15 on rifle per family. was produced by Karman, a high school youth who honed his skills as a student of Sessions LA - a youth and student workshop series that DJ Phatrick helped develop in the Historic Filipinotown district of Los Angeles. Karman has since found his own voice as an experimental Hip Hop producer with a very unique sound. After hearing what Karman had done with an old Tommy Wright III record on his Soundcloud, Bambu asked Karman to replicate such for his latest Beatrock release. After the release of the music video for Lean, Bambu once again sought out Karman to put together this 5-song Free(EP), The Lean Sessions. Something to play to help get you through your work day... Lean.

Shag presents Flyrule: a Terrible Fate [Beat Tape]


From Shag:

I remember when I got Majora's Mask. I was 9 years old, and it was a Christmas present from my (fucking awesome) parents. I was so upset because every Christmas, we would open presents and then leave straight to my Grandma's house (3 hours away), and I wouldn't get to play with my gifts for about a week. The entire time we were with my family I just wanted to go home and play the new Zelda. When I finally got a chance I was a little surprised.

Majora's Mask was so different than OoT to the then young me. At the time, I was a little too young to understand the darker atmosphere and the heartbreaking themes that ran rampant in that game. As I grew older and got a chance to immerse myself in Termina once again, I played through the game with a much more solid grasp of what was going on, and in many ways, Majora's Mask replaced Ocarina of Time as my favorite Zelda.

This runs parallel to my hobby of producing in a generously abstracted way. I visited Ocarina of Time in my earlier days of producing... and while my effort (Flyrule) made a lasting impact on it's listeners, I felt as if I had come a long way since then. It was time for me to offer up something new; something that, though a bit darker and refined in style, better represented me as an artist and person.

Here's my take on some of the classic tracks from Majora's Mask. Enjoy it, share it with your friends, buy it from me, listen to it while you re-visit Majora's Mask, I don't know.

Rubble Kings (Documentary) [Video]

From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay an unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings, the most comprehensive documentation of life during this era of gang rule to date, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted the world over.

Rubble Kings is a feature length documentary about the New York city street gangs of the late ‘60s / ‘70s and their influence on hip-hop culture.

"The film's lively roster of former Savage Skulls, Black Spades, Assassinators, Ghetto Brothers, Hitmen or Turban Queens, expressively recalling and explaining gang culture, is matched only by its flood of down-and-dirty archival imagery." (

Independent and self-funded, Rubble Kings needs your help!

The movie is pretty much finished. Unfortunately we can't release or show the film beyond festivals or private screenings because the music rights and archival footage must first be cleared. Being able to pay for the songs and footage in this film is crucial to telling this story accurately and in its truest form.
