Ziro: Oni (Om Unit's Wrongspeed)

In something that popped up over in the last day or so, Ziro, UK producer has a release coming mid July. Part of the release includes a Om Unit rmx for a track Oni. Uploaded last night for streaming, Om Unit keeps banging them out at near relentless pace.

Look for this to drop sometime in July on Crazy Legs.



Jeremiah Jae: Money [VIDEO]

In a P4K exclusive, a new clip from the Brainfeeder's Jeremiah Jae for Money. The vid was shot and directed by none other than your man FlyLo himself as he finds himself splitting time more and more b/w being behind the lens and the boards.

Kelpe: Studio Session [VIDEO]

My man Kelpe sent me this video of a performance in his own home studio, The Blankout Agreement. Love these little POV performances - IN FULL STEREO for you iPhone users on the bus/transit. Just make sure you're sitting down. ;)



Low End Theory w/ Marry Anne Hobbs, Eprom, Ages

This was the tweet before Mary Anne Hobbs took the stage last last week in Los Angeles at The Airliner for Low End Theory. With the usual residents, she along w/ Eprom and Ages did that damn thing. Which reminds to get to this Ages email I got... He's a little video recap of the night.


Knxwledge: Karma.Loops.prt4

It's the 2nd release this month of the 4th instalment of his is Karma Loops series. I've said this in the past, but there's something very Madlibian in Knxwledge's volume and pace work. I really think he's got a cool series going on and I believe many others do as well.
Released today in Karma.loops.prt4, 8 tracks of pure Knxwledge at his classic self.



TNGHT Interview (Hudmo and Lunice)

In a RARE camera appearance from Hudmo, we have an interview with TNGHT which is Hudson Mohawke and Lunice, both of Lucky Me. They talk all things TNGHT, from conception, inspiration to wish lists, despite a host more concerned with her weave.

The TNGHT EP is out at in late July on Warp worldwide.

Monday Jazz Presents WORKERS

Been a min since I've touched on these cats. Although very little was provided at this time, but we do know that the venerated Monday Jazz will be releasing a compilation due out July 2nd entitled Workers.
You can stream this clip below to get full idea of the names and sounds to be expected.

Marriage Proposal
Cream Child
Genys & Piotrus Pan

Stay tuned. Soon come. In the meantime, be sure to check Monday Jazz and the wealth of podcasts they have avail.



Bling 47 brings us another fantastic break down of Dilla breaks. This time, lead by the youngest in charge, Black Milk as he speaks on one of THE illest tracks ever, Shake It Down (uh!).


DM1 for iPhone

A little whilst back, I bought a great little drum machine app for this iPad called DM1. I had spent quite a bit of time messing about with it and even writing some riddims to it. I gave it a massive co sign. So it was welcomed news when I came across the DM1 for iPhone being launched, and currently @ the intro price of 99¢. Amazing.

Be warned, you must run the latest iOS, 5.1 to load it. So of you're not going to install in right away on your phone, download it to your computer and or lap top and install it after you've upgraded. I'm upgrading my iOS as we speak.

BTW, just noticed the user guide is also up for download.



Om Unit: Aeolian EP

It just seemed like yesterday that Om Unit had a release, but that's simply testament to the work that he's been able to do with his own Cosmic Bridge imprint along with essentially staying all around busy. Coming from Civil Music in July will be a new EP form one of the busiest Red Bull Music Academy alums. Once again, Om Unit's mastery and abilities of blurring the lines between 80/160 grooves is evident. The sound that he's spent sometime crafting, shines bright like a Sirius star on this Aeolian EP. Tracks like Ulysses and Slowfast Matrix make it clear he's able to stay in that groove. But collaborative works like Dark Sunrise feature some welcomed vocals, as well as Lightworker's Call featuring friend Kromestar.


1. Ulysses
2. Dark Sunrise (feat. Tamara Blessa)
3. Fumes
4. Lightworker's Call (feat. Kromestar)
5. Slowfast Matrix

This Aeolian EP will be available on Civil Music in July 2012 in all fine music emporiums as well as digital.



Dorian Concept Live at RBMA Bass Camp

Been a min since I heard from my man Dorian Concept - the ordained minister of melodies. He's with Ninja Tune, and finds himself lending his skills for bigger shows at festivals with friends along the way. I've also longed the day that we would make it out to Canada for some gigs - as I was able to catch his set a few years back @ Sonar and wow... Either way, I got a little nostalgic watching this set from the Warsaw RBMA Bass Camp earlier this year. Quite a site and of course sounds... Enjoy.

Skullcandy Presents: Onra - So Sure

In a surprising revelation yesterday, found out that Skullcandy was in the game for more than just playing the music in your ears. They got together with Onra and one of his closest buds, Walter Mecca to put out a very limited edition release/pressing coinciding with the Supreme Sound Aviators for a music series.

You can listen to it here and if you're slick enough, call either Democratie or Betinos Record Shop in Paris to get your hands on this prized wax.

You can get more info from Skullcandy here. Enjoy.


Iamyank on Beatsurfing App [VIDEO]

Some weeks past, I spoke on this new app under dev called Beatsurfing. It's now live and has been in use by many around the globe - recently saw your man SertOne on instagram chatting it up.
Either way, Iamyank emailed me this video of him rawking on it, just a few days ago and got to watch it last night.

Things are getting pretty interesting in the production/performance landscape.



Jonwayne: Live At Wrongbar July 19th

This has been in the works for a min as well. In fact, i've been sitting on this announcement for a few. Long story short, I've been discussing this with my peers, and now I hope the whole city of Toronto comes to see what I feel is a great artist during his rise.
All the way for sunny California will be none other than Stones Throw's Jonwayne, Live in Toronto.
Known to I'm sure many, Jonwayne is a bit of a beast on the boards. Unbeknownst to most until recently, he was an accomplished MC before all that beat stuff went down. He had been in talks w/ Stones Throw well through much of last year before they sealed the deal recently.
With that being said Jonwayne will be in Toronto to perform that goodness that Stones Throw feels will be the start of something very special.
To commemorate the night, we will celebrate by having a night chalk full of Stones Throw's classic catalog - all night. A kind of a old meets new, with vintage bangers and a live performance Jonwayne, the heir to the thrown. Along for the ride will be Never Forgive Action's own Numeric and riding shotgun will be my_man_henri.

ANENON: Live June 27th 2012

Been waiting for the right time and place and here we are. Though this will be quick and quite brief, it's my pleasure to announce that Toronto will be blessed with a last min FREE performance from Anenon, head of Non Projects and 2011 graduate of the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy.
Anenon will be in Canada for a western date, but wanted to pass through Toronto just before heading to NYC for another set of shows. Timing could not be best with Jazz Fest upon us.

This exclusive evening of visceral live and improvised electronic music will be capped with a quick conversation with Anenon, né Brian Allen Simon and will feature the electronic improvisation that has caught the eye of many and admiration of many more along with the support of the likes of XLR8R magazine just to name one.
Speaking of, you can listen to his recent Acquiescence EP as well as a recent mix for Dummy mag.

Karriem Riggins: Stones Throw Podcast 74

... and the news gets better. Just last week, I was asking Peanut Butter Wolf when he was in Toronto, about the most honourable Karriem Riggins and when the LP was coming. This has been talked about for so long that most prob forgot about it. Not I. A few yrs ago, Stones Throw released the infamous Miami podcast which was but a fraction of what was really played. In fact this little 3 min youtube I shot had bangers that never made this podcast. The word was his set had too many exclusives to release. Le sigh.
Anyhow, just in the inbox was sitting the newest podcast from Stones Throw: Stones Throw Podcast 74 | Karriem Riggins Produced That.
A little something as Stones Throw starts to set up the LP release.

Something tells me this was scheduled to drop some time back. What do you think?? Either way, this is a mix of some of Karriem's work. A fun listen as we await the bangers from ST.

Tall Black Guy: Tempo Dreams v1

In 2007, I was in Chicago for the Red Bull Big Tune where Black Milk was performing and during the beat battle, met this cat Tall Black Guy who had won the event. Dude had bangers. Ffwd to 2012. Tall Black Guy has been buzzing for some time releasing edits, remixes and his own material for listeners. My man Tensei shot me an email reminding me that he's now curated his own compilation which is out... and features the likes of Buscrates, Monkey Robot, Tenesi, Ta-Ku, Applejac, Doc Illingsworth, Floyd Cheung, Evil Needle, Jeriko Jackson, Teru, Chief and of course himself.

Coming from the Bastard Jazz camp, the compilation is avail on iTunes today. And to spark that, enjoy the download below - Sparkling Adventure




Royalty: Eroica EP

Something that I've been keeping in rotation for quite a few weeks. Chesca had sent the files over for their newest release.
Eroica, the new EP from the Royalty duo that is Yorke Beats and Chesca Ches is on it's way. The title track, Eroica (it should be me) features Kissey (she dropped the Asplund) on this very retro mid tempo cut which in fact brought be right back to high school - no joke. Even more serious is the rmx courtesy of Yorke Beats himself, slowing the tempo right down to a quiet storm ballad, a fantastic edit.

Eroica, the new EP from Royalty should be out early July on digital and will also be available on coloured wax in a limited run of 300 pieces.

Computer Jay: Savage Planet Discotheque v1

Good news is when I get an email from Computer Jay. Great news is when he's got some news about music. And great news it was...
What I know I have been patiently waiting for, is finally coming to fruition. Computer Jay, back from a trip to Latin America is back in LA, ready to release new material.
Having chosen to do for self, not only will he be releasing the Savage Planet Discotheque v1 EP, he'll do so on his own label Weird Science. Very fitting for the man who had long ago assembled his own synth and in fact traveled to shows all over the world with it.
Either way, Savage Planet Discotheque v1 EP will be the 1st of 4 volumes to be released in 3 month intervals. July 31st will be the date for the 1st one, and he's leaked the title track as 1st single which features Shafiq Husayn of Sa-Ra fame, and Jimetta Rose. If you know Computer Jay, this single is in full character: a futuristic banger full of interstellar swing, funky nostalgia with a tight drum rack for the fellas and a cordial chorus for the ladies to sing to.


Enjoy the download and stay tuned!

Jonwayne Fucks Disney

Something that popped up a few weeks back. In a moment of apparent genius and boredom, SoCal's Jonwayne, Stones Throw's most recent act found himself sampling some disney classics, using nothing but an iPad, a Zoom H2 and a Cali producer staple, the venerable SP404, he created this 8 track EP of chopped Disney sample, all in one sitting the evening of May 28th.

Om'mas Keith: Girls A Player (Om Unit rmx)

Coming from one of my fave boutique labels, All City, we have another release involving the mighty Om Unit. This time, and a collab with Sa-Ra's Om'mas Keith on the vocals but a remix courtesy of Om Unit. The heralded LA Series which dropped most of 2010 and part of 2011 featured Om'mas Keith as the #0 edition (the 11th of the series of 10"). This new 7" single is essentially a #0 prime. Really, this is not the complicated math - just a great track. But in the interim, here is the fresh animated video directed by Donovan Delaney to launch this fresh remix that is finally seeing light of day. Enjoy.

The Om'mas Keith: Girls A Player (Om Unit rmx) 7" from All City is out in the finest record emporiums, and the digital will drop June 18th.



Knxwledge: Karma​.​loops​.​prt3

And you know this: Knxwledge got a new one out. More classics from the former Klipm0dian. What can I say that's not been said about him and his music before? More classics.

Just as I talked about Suff Daddy's release Suff Sells yesterday, here's a nice little clip from the LP.

Ha. Suff Sells LP IS out now. ENJOY! ;)


Waajeed Beat Tape pt 1

Waajeed, the man with countless projects, and one who is egregiously overlooked is in current works on a multitude of projects, including a recent partnership with Dirt Teck Reck. In the interim, he's decided to release a beat tape from various remixes and unreleased projects that may have blessed a few of your ears, but have largely been unheard. Of course it's on Bling47. And he's kindly asked MCs to keep bars to themselves - no demos. ;)

Track Ten. Quick to Bust 10.12 - 11.46


Cascade Records & Resistant Mindz: Closed Expansion

It's not oft that you see labels collab on a release. I would imagine the paper getting messy but more importantly, the bragging rights. How do you brag about a partner unless she looks like Eva Mendes or my currently unnamed twitter avatar goddess?? Either way, coming from Cascade Records out of France and German Resistant Mindz, we have a compilation Closed Expansion LP. This compilation gather an alliance of cats from France, Germany, Japan and the US. Names like Fitz Ambro$e, RLP, Duktus, Ackryte to name a few. I was unable to get past Fitz Ambrose's lead off banger for the longest time, keeping that on repeat endlessly - but don't make that mistake as the rest of the LP reveals wonderful material just the same. Closed Expansion LP is almost entirely instrumental with what I believe is two actual rap tracks. You can download this sampler below.


1. Fitz Ambro$e - Gamezyokt
2. Duktus - Cause Life
3. Repeat Pattern feat. El Stoof - Paper Animal fire
4. ReedFlavor - Solar Flash
5. 2SkinnyBlkGuys - Blistex

Either way, we have another release called ARRAY, and we have that same slow flow and that asynchronicity (if I may say) that simply works. Tracks that are barely 90 secs, full of chops, loops and sound efx are what ARRAY is all abuot. Just one of those records that seems to strike a chord chez moi, and hope you enjoy it as well.

Danny Scrilla: Flash Powder EP

We are coming to the 6th release from Om Unit's Cosmic Bridge Recordings and keeps with the modus operandi, keeping with that sound. The interstellar soundtrack that Han Solo popped in the deck of the Millennium Falcon when he needed to cruise between Galaxies. ;). We now have Danny Scrilla on the buttons for the 6th instalment. His Flash Powder EP will be dropping in July and should keep the buzz about the label that I feel has been very warranted. Tough little detail has been offered about the EP other than title and track list, you can stream a sampler below as we get more news in the coming weeks.
