Down 2 Earth Vol. 3

Having dipped his toe in the world of house on recent EP Dance Of The Cosmos, the inimitable Ras G gets back to business with the newest of his Down 2 Earth collections. Down 2 Earth Vol. 3 is a baker’s dozen of Afrofuturist MPC tunes that come through like what J Dilla might be getting up to nowadays had he lived. Duckwrth shows up with some bars on Vol. 3 highlight ‘Back And Forth’.

Ras G
Raw Fruit Vol. 3-4

Ras G considers the material on the Raw Fruit series of beat-tapes as primarily “freestyle beats I make to smoke weed to”. Good to have a clearly defined function. However, these tracks aren’t just doped out: Ras’ interests in afrofuturism and free jazz (he is a contemporary of Flying Lotus after all) are also audibly apparent. Double LP on Leaving Records.

Ras G & Moresounds
Ras G Meets Moresounds EP

They don’t come much tougher than this. Brooklyn label Dub-Stuy launches a series of collaborative EPs with a meeting between LA astro-experimentalist Ras G and Parisian producer Moresounds. Taking dub stylings as their cue, both producers move off to explore different parts of the soundsystem. While Ras G’s low-end theory takes combine the foggy atmospheres of dub with the diasporic boom-bap of Madlib, Moresounds offers two crisply-engineers numbers that will damage many a dance.

Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program
Stargate Music

Leaving Records (Matthewdavid, devonwho) provide a home for the latest LP by LA beat-smith Ras G. The Arrival is another sci-fi melting pot from the former Brainfeeder man. Plenty of cosmic and spiritual jazz influences rub shoulders with leftfield hip-hop takes and some Midwest house sounds. Will appeal to those who enjoyed the two Shabazz Palaces records that dropped in 2017. Out on 4/20.

Ras G
The Gospel Of The God Spell

Initially released late 2016 on cassette only, Street Corner Music have revisited this beats tape by Los Angeles producer Ras G to bring it out on vinyl for the first time. Made up of quick beats that he put together from sampling the gospel section in the record store where he works it’s a crate-digger’s vinyl straight to MPC dream.

Ras G
Baker's Dozen: Ras_G

Heavy, woozy, weird, but always funky, Ras G’s contribution to the Baker’s Dozen series is a snapshot of his influential Los Angeles instrumental hip-hop. The vinyl LP from Fat Beats is beautifully packaged too, with notes from the man himself and photos of Ras’ considerable gear collection and his sun-kissed home studio.

Ras G
The El-Aylien Tapes Vol. 1 & 2

Deep and heavy beat tracks from premium producer Ras G. Operating from the heart of the LA scene, G pulls many of his samples from the regions of free jazz, lending his tracks a strongly afrofuturistic vibe. The El-Aylien Tapes Vol. 1 & 2 is a strong set of groovy collages, released by Leaving Records.

Ras G
Down 2 Earth Vol. 2

Purity and soul food from beat making guru Ras G. Down 2 Earth Vol. 2 are 18 effortless grooves of weed induced hip-hop. Taking sounds from jazz, funk, soul & reggae, Ras has been digging deep to give you his point of view. This feels like an ode to his favorite producers, with him leaving his own personal mark on beat making. It will dust the stress off your bones whilst inducing you to get down and floppy. Out on vinyl LP from Leaving Records.

Ras G
Raw Fruit Vol. 1&2

In the words of  hip-hop beat maker and Martian future-music producer Ras G, Raw Fruit is “shit i make 2 smoke weed to, that i never save… i just make em, record em and on 2 the next one… RAW SHIT”. Cut from Ras G’s beat tapes, the result is a freestyle epiphany of sticky, broken beats with all the insides showing.

Ras G
Back On the Planet

Good to have you Back On The Planet, Mr. G. For his first Brainfeeder LP in a couple of years we find old Ras in an Ancient Space Program way, which means that you should strap yourselves in before listening to this one. In the noble tradition of Sun Ra, Pharaoh Sanders et al, Ras G travels deep into the astral plane here, swinging from spiritual groove tracks (‘All Is Well…’) to the most fervid of noisescapes (‘Back On The Planet’).
