'Spose I better get this going.

First up, Edan's live partner and a sick MC in his own right, Insight's albums coming:

Dope beats and dope rhymes.

And this gets an official reissue through Traffic on double vinyl and CD:

One of the greatest albums ever made.

So who's coming to the DMC's then?

Yep that O.C reissue is a god send. Had a few copies in me shop and they flew out! Got a few copies left on CD, so I may have to get one for myself :rolleyes: .

Couple of albums on BBE dropping this month (in the Uk anyway), Foreign Exchange - Connected and Masta Ace - A Long Hot Summer. Both of these are quality, so dont sleep.

Scribe

Its been out in New Zealand for just under a year and i understand he's just gone double platinum which is pretty huge for a NZ hiphop artist. Scribe's got some serious skills and its worth checking out if your open to something other than UK/US hiphop. :rolleyes:

Do it but if ya haven't gone with my other NZ recommendations then i expect you won't. :o

Oh and he's over here at the mo but not sure if hes touring. He's one of the very few hiphop artists coming out of New Zealand that have the potential and is likely to go worldwide.

These hip hop artists must be bloody prolific to produce enough albums to warrant a 30 odd page topic every month.

:rolleyes:

There is just so much different stuff released each month that this thread is needed to warn of the shit and recommend the good.

I dare say you could have a similarly large topic on Jazz or Rock or any other genre.

Ashmatuk, it'd be cool if you do let me know if you get any more OC vinyls, you'll have a guaranteed sale!

I'm hopefully fingers crossed going to NZ early next year. I'll check him out!

You will love it mate. (New Zealand that is!)

It is a year to the day I went out there for 6weeks and I'm gutted I'm stuck in an office typing shit on a forum instead!! Next stop is Canada but not for at least a year! :rolleyes:

If ya go, check out along with Scribe; Mareko (+his crew The Deceptikonz),Breakin Wreckwordz,King Kapishi, Ill Semantics and if poss find somewhere DJ Raw is playing. He's fucking awesome.

Insight is class, his work on Mr Lif's I Phantom is awesome.

I've discovered that I can upload upto 100mb on my PC so I'll try and upload Edan's and Insight's 10 minute breezeblock set later tonight - One take genius.

Edit: Bah, did the upload work - did it hell.

you can have my review right now.

it's fucking stunning. seriously. thought the first one was very hard work and couldn't get along with most of it. but this is just next level.

love it to bits.

Agreed 100% (apart from the stuff about the first album - one of my favourite albums ever)

See if you can download Girls from the new album - the beat is amazing.

Great album - I think the NME gave it 9, Observer Music Monthly 5/5

Edit: Found this earlier today - Rob Sonic - Shoplift Didn't like it at first but the riff needles into your brain, anyone heard the album?

I doubt it these days. Decent rock music is currently appearing in a slow trickle.

I do keep trying to get into hip hop. But for every good track I download I seem to download one I don't like.

I've got some Aesop Rock, Beasties, Outkast, The Roots, Atmosphere, cloudDEAD, but that's about it.

Give this a try

Right. So my new local has the following available cheapish. Please advise:

Beatnuts / Milk Me

Like everyone with a soul, I adore the production of their first few LPs. Unlike many others, I can take or leave the lyrics. So how does this one measure up?

DJ Krush / Zen

I like his mid-90s stuff, have sort of lost track after that. Did he do a DJ Cam or is this still funky (without being packed with dull guest rappers)?

Dan The Automator / A Better Tomorrow

I like Dr Octagon, Deltron 3030, Handsome Boy Modelling School, Music To Make Love... So I'm gonna like this, right?

Please help me spend my money.

There were posts about this last month. Some like it, some don't. I like it. There are no real shocks on there. Production is still nice. I DLed it and will buy it next time I'm in Soho.

Also, birthday props to devil-goh. (I've not been around much the past few days.)

I've got the title track from this CD which is great, and features Kool Kieth.

Not heard anything else from it though.

Has anyone seen this: http://www.wutangcorp.com/news/getarticle/article/592/?

I was a little disappointed by the tracklisting, but then I'd never buy a Wu 'Greatest Hits' anyway. Even those who haven't got any Wu material could do better than that CD I think. Ah well.

Finally, I've got hold of some rare Wu demo's and shit which I'll upload sometime today and post here for you all.

OK, I've packaged up some interesting Wu audio files in this Zip here:

Rare Wu-Tang Stuff

It's 53.4Mb, so here's whats included (all files are .mp3 unless shown otherwise):

All In Together Now - Bring Da Ruckus (Demo).wma

All In Together Now - Take It Back To Brooklyn.wma

All In Together Now - Talent Show.wma

All In Together Now - Wu-Tang Master (Demo).wma

Blue Raspberry - Ill Wind (Promo)

Planet Asia - Real Niggaz (Featuring Ghostface Killah)

Raekwon - In Da Club (Freestyle)

RZA - Tearz (Live)

Wu-Tang Clan - 7th Chamber (Remix)

Wu-Tang Clan - Brind Da Ruckus (Remix)

Wu-Tang Clan - Protect Ya Neck (Bloody Version)

Wu-Tang Clan - Spot Lite

Some of it is so-so (especially the first four tracks) and some of it is very good. The 'In Da Club' freestyle is superb - nice to hear someone put the beat to good use. 'Protect Ya Neck (Bloody Version)' I didn't even know existed until today, so thats another highlight for me, with the extended beat at the end making it even more awesome.

Check it out.

I most certainly will check it out when i get home tonight.

Been trying to stay off my computer in the evenings but it doesn't seem to be working. Finished putting all my albums onto my mp3 yesterday and thought tonight i'll do something else.......but no you come up with this lot and now i have glue myself to it again!! ;):(;)
