Beastie Boys
Solid Gold Hits

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start with the Beastie Boys. They started out basically as children making near novelty rap before swinging by an unbelievable breadth of musical styles over their career. This 2005 era compilation just takes all the singles and best bits from 'Sabotage' to 'Fight For Your Right' to 'Shake Yo...view item »

Ben LaMar Gay
Downtown Castles Can Never Block The Sun

Chicago trumpeter, vocalist and composer Ben LaMar Gay doing some serious quality control here: the tunes making up Downtown Castles Can Never Block the Sun were chosen from seven unreleased albums. It’s quite a mix and it’s all of a very high quality, neither of which surprising. There’s gorgeous, melted piano...view item »

The Pharcyde
Labcabincalifornia

Snarky and extremely wise-cracking Pharcyde, aka the band responsible for all the your mum jokes in the world, made a record after Bizarre Ride II, you just don't know about it (to be honest, maybe you do). It's wisely titled Labcabincalifornia and a certain J Dilla ...view item »

Chris Orrick
Portraits

Time for some self-realisation, folks. MC Chris Orrick has come into ‘Portraits’ with a harsh look at everything around him but it all bounces back inward. Opening on the loathing “Self-portrait”, he crafts a song as caustically insular and openly damning as Kendrick’s “u”, making a light, mellow beat fo...view item »

Digable Planets
Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space) - 25th Anniversary Edition

Finally: a reissue of Digable Planets’ 1993 debut, Reachin’ (A New Refutation of Time and Space)! It's the first time the record has been on vinyl since those heady days, now expanded to 2 discs. Their laid-back, finger-snappin' jazzy sound spawned the huge hit 'Rebirth Of Slick (Cool Like Dat)' - and - the ...view item »

Blockhead
The Art of the Sample

Some very hippity sort of hop from Blockhead here. The NYC producer is one of those beatmakers who may never have heard any music 1) while not stoned and 2) that was made after 2004. As with last year's plunderphonics opus ...view item »

Egyptian Lover
1983–1988

Absolutely essential anthology for anyone interested in early West Coast hip-hop / foundation electro or just old school hip hop in general. Greg Broussard aka Egyptian Lover is a legendary figure that began his musical career in the early 80’s as a DJ in Los Angeles crew...view item »

The Streets
Original Pirate Material

The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.&nb...view item »

The Criminal Minds
Guilty As Charged

The Criminal Minds were a Buckinghamshire hip-hop crew active in the early 90’s who produced music in bedrooms and slipped it out in small-run releases.

Prefuse 73
Sacrifices

Last spotted writing an album called 'Lady Parts' as Fudge, it feels like time Scott Heron got back to doing what he's best at. After many years of output he still has great production chops and though we have absolutely zero information about this album we're sure it will be as much anticipated as all his previous work. &n...view item »

Childish Gambino
Awaken, My Love!

Vinyl release of Childish Gambino’s third album, which was released at the end of 2016. Polymath that he is, Donald Glover ditches his project’s characteristic rapping to croon his way through an ambitious funk effort that resembles 70s R&B more than his own previous work. Standard vinyl LP on Glassnote....view item »

Ceiling Demons
Nil

Ceiling Demons are to my knowledge the only hip-hop troupe to come out of Richmond, North Yorkshire. Their rhymes are less about at which delicatessen to get the finest olives and the geranium display on the castle walls but male mental health what it's like to grow up in rural England. William Hague is fan (we think).  'Nil' sounds...view item »

Slum Village
The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition)

The billionth posthumous J Dilla release is also a celebration of his early group Slum Village. Their LP Fantastic, Volume 2 was actually released at the turn of the Millennium, but since recording was completed in 1998 this year marks a twentieth anniversary for the record.

Public Enemy
It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back

No hiphop collection should be without the 1989 breakthrough LP from PE. Chuck D’s lyrics and delivery matched with The Bomb Squad’s confrontational production represented a new high-water mark as to what rap could be capable of. The track listing is jaw-dropping - Bring the Noise, D...view item »

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Piñata

Yes, this is the real shit here. Hip hop royalty Madlib's collaboration with wordsmith Freddie Gibbs have teased us with a couple of EPs already which were more tantalising than satisfying.

Sami Baha
Free For All

As he's partly responsible for one of the greatest tracks of all time (Total Freedom's Bitch Better Have My Money edit), I've always had a soft spot for Sami Baha.

Sweatson Klank
Fine Lines

We all wish we could be called Sweatson Klank, but unfortunately, there can be only one. This Sweatson Klank is a Los Angeles producer who melds hip-hop, future R&B and House whilst being nifty enough to balance the necessary muscular punch with a soulful emotional tug. Fine Lines doesn’t fit into any ...view item »

J Dilla
Dillatronic

You wouldn’t think that there was too much left to lick out of the J Dilla mixing bowl but this collection of his electronic works shows off his versatility whilst confirming that we haven’t reached anything like a drought yet. His touch is all over these tracks from the clipped beats to the tape-delayed shouts to the od...view item »

lojii & Swarvy

Daedelus
Of Snowdonia & Something Bells

While Daedelus might now have built a whole scene in his image, back in the early 2000s he was still working towards that whole mad-genius post-bap thing. 2003’s Of Snowdonia LP, and the shorter Something Bells that was released the following year, both represent significant steps in his artistic progress...view item »

Quasimoto
The Unseen

The history of Quasimoto is complicated by producer Madlib's various tellings and re-imaginings and embellishments.

Beat Konducta Vol. 1: Movie Scenes

Is it possible to make cut and splice hip-hop any better than this? It's part of a series of issues of Madlib work from the early 2000s and can easily be counted alongside Dilla's 'Donuts' as playful sample-heavy scissor-hop of the highest order, based around a series of imagined '70s TV shows and films. The opening tracks have enough in...view item »
