Jonwayne: Cassette 3 (The Marion Morrison Mixtape) [Mix]

 photo jonwayne_zps513e4192.png

Jonwayne Fucks everyone, not just Disney. Following his brief melee with Marlboro over the "improper use" of their "distinctive font", the Stones Throw signee flips it, turning foul into folly in typical Jonwayne fashion - opening with Ode To Mortality and closing with Marion Morrison, the dubious fuck you to the cigarette craftsman.

Janine & The Mixtape: Dark Mind [EP]

 photo janine_zps4512804e.png

If The Weeknd were a female, he would sound like Janine and The Mixtape, and that is a good thing. What is not so great is the fact that Dark Mind clocks in at under 20 minutes, so for the weekend warriors, there is much left to be desired. Yet that may just have been the Brooklynite's best bet - leaving listeners salivating for more of her signature synthesized soul.


Jan Dulay: Hiraeth [Album]

 photo jan_hiraeth_zpsc7018b9e.png

Jan follows up last year's L EP with Hiraeth, a tracklist of tales self-described as the artist "imitating musicians and a person that goes under the name of 8/26/91"," adding to the allure by proclaiming "he was great." Interpretation aside, the album sounds amazing and (although not surprising) another step above her last effort. As we have stated so many times before, her force is strong as she perpetually bests her prior projects, time and time again.

Ta-Ku & Raashan Ahmad: Low Fidelity, High Quality [Album]

 photo takurashaanahmad_zps183962dd.png

From Jakarta Records:

Raashan Ahmad was on a euro tour some weeks ago and during his stop in Berlin we were talking music over dinner. I told Raashan that we are about to release an album with Ta-ku (which has happened in the meantime, check out the 'DOWHATYOULOVE' album) and he asked me whether I knew that he recorded a full album with him some time ago during his last australian tour. No, I didn't know that and getting my hand on the album turned out to be not too easy as it couldn't be located for quite a while. In the end Raashan found it on an old hard drive and I was a fan of the album instantly. It's raw hip hop in the truest sense. None of the songs are longer then 3 minutes, quite some are around the 2 minute mark. Nothing but dope beats and raps with some unreleased Ta-ku instrumentals sprinkled in between.

In celebration of both artists releases on Jakarta Records this year we figured it would be nice to give it away for free digitally and even better we decided that pressing it on wax would be nice too. Only 250 copies, numbered, no repress, the first 80 copies on clear wax.

The 45 Sessions, Stones Throw & MightySF presents #45LIVE (Recap) [Video]

Prior to Friday's festivities, Randall Rufino likened Prince Paul, Peanut Butter Wolf, J. Rocc, Shortkut, Platurn and Dam-Funk to The Avengers, and after catching the crew 45 Live (and direct), it's hard to disagree. Catching any one of these master craftsman solo is a show in and of itself, but for the six to come together to swap cut after cut after cut - each better than the next - garners a geekgasm like no other. Kudos to The 45 Sessions, Stones Throw and MightySF for such a kick-ass event!
