The Beats: Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton OST

Don't know if you've had a chance to check out the Stones Throw documentary 'Our Vinyl Weighs A Ton' yet but anyone interested in independent beat making and the spirit of self-organisation would be wise to check it out. Brief highlights include Dam_Funk rapping about his new afro, ...view item »

Jaylib
Champion Sound: The Remix

Where Madlib and J Dilla come together, beatheads collapse left right and centre from sheer amazed joy. This release has Madlib remixing Dilla’s Champion Sound track, as well as a previously unheard collaboration that dates back to the pair’s original ...view item »

Madlib
Shades Of Blue

Shades of Blue is an incredible sampling of Blue Note, and holds many excellent tracks.

Med, Blu & Madlib
The Buzz

I don’t really get to review much hip-hop here at HQ so this is a nice surprise for me on this dreary winter afternoon... This is one of those typical hip-hop records that have so many names attached to it it’s hard to work out exactly whose record it actually is. The only name I am really familiar with is Los Angeles based D...view item »
