N.E.R.D.
In Search Of (Deluxe)

In Search Of… was the first album by N.E.R.D. The group featured some bloke called Pharell Williams, who I’m sure will make a name for himself one day. Two versions of the album were made - The Electric Version and The Rock Version. Now you can get them all together on 4 LPs. Includes the hits Lapdance and Rockstar.

Sampa The Great
The Return

Sampa The Great has been cusping on stardom for a while now. With her debut LP proper The Return, the Sydney-based rapper might just break through. The Return is a barnstorming album, one on which Sampa Tembo draws strength from both her Southern African roots and hip-hop history. Cuts like ‘Final Form’ swagger with the confidence and class of The Blueprint-era Jay-Z. The production credits here ain’t too shabby either - Silentjay, Kwes Darko and Clever Austin are among those who contribute beats on The Return.

Earl Sweatshirt
Some Rap Songs

The prodigal son returns! Earl Sweatshirt serves up his third solo LP Some Rap Songs three years on the troubled I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Well, we say LP - at just shy of 25 minutes, Some Rap Songs is as brief as they come. However, this brevity plays to the Off Future man’s strengths as he serves up a series of quick-fire impressionist hip-hop takes. He also sounds a little happier than before - some of the beats could almost be described as ‘sunny’.

GZA
Liquid Swords: Marvel Edition

Liquid Swords needs no introduction. GZA, ‘Cold World’, guest features from everyone else in Wu-Tang, blah blah blah. A pinnacle of '90s hip-hop, the 1995 record still sounds great more than two decades on from its release. On this new Marvel Edition the LP is given a new lick of paint to tie in with the comic book behemoth. Cool new artwork and some nice little extras on both versions.

BJ The Chicago Kid
1123

BJ The Chicago Kid drops his latest LP of widescreen hip-hop. 1123 is very much a post-To Pimp A Butterfly album, but it’s also a post-Stankonia album, a post-Channel Orange album and a post-Acid Rap album. That is to say there’s a lot going on here, with neo-soul and trap beats sitting side by side. 1123 boasts a pretty varied guestlist too - Rick Ross and Offset rub shoulders with J.I.D., Afrojack and Anderson .Paak.

Beastie Boys
Ill Communication

Beastie Boys reissues raining down on your turntables these days! Ill Communication, coming at you from 1994, with all beats produced, lines rapped and instruments played by the Beastie Boys, spawned one of their most famous songs, Sabotage. But these guys gave us so much more: shortly after the release of this album, they coined the word mullet. This is your chance to acquire a piece of pop culture history!

Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels 2

The first Run The Jewels record capped a victory lap of a year for producer EL-P and rapper Killer Mike, who respectively released the bombastic 'Cancer 4 Cure' and poignant 'R.A.P Music' -- they then went on to release their collaborative self-titled record, which showed off the affection and understanding they share for each other's work. They're back now with the blood red 'Run The Jewels 2'.

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.  

Jean Grae
The Evil Jeanius

Tsidi Ibrahim, better known by her stage name Jean Grae, is one of the most respected female rappers around, her career stretching back to the mid-Nineties. Her 2008 album The Evil Jeanius, produced in tandem with Blue Sky Black Death and considered one of her finest records, now gets a release on wax for the first time. It was controversial upon release, though, as her label Babygrande (also responsible for this vinyl re-issue) used Grae’s vocals without her permission.

Ol' Dirty Bastard
Return To The 36 Chambers : The Dirty Version

Ol' Dirty has got even dirtier with this remastered version of his 1996 debut 36 Chambers. His first foray outside the bosom of Wu-Tang Clan, it was a stunning tour de force of entertainingly gritty hip-hop showcasing his unusual sea-sick and off kilter flow on tracks that ranged from terrifying to darkly humorous. It has long been seen as one of the high points of Wu-Tang's storied history and one of the most innovative rap records to date.

GZA / Genius
Pro Tools

A blue-vinyl re-issue of Pro Tools, the fifth solo studio album from Wu-Tang Clan founding member and MC GZA / Genius. When it first appeared in the summer of 2008, the record won plaudits for its melancholy soul atmosphere and the distinctive Wu-Tang reflections of the lyrics. Sadly, GZA hasn’t made another solo record in the subsequent 11 years.

Ceschi
Sans Soleil

Julio Francisco Ramos, the Connecticut-based rapper better known as Ceschi, reveals the second part of his planned trilogy of records that’ll see him bow out of his career. Having won acclaim for Sad, Fat Luck earlier this year, Sans Soleil is another playful and political suite of switched-on hip-hop. 

Jungle Brown
Full Circle

Soulful, old-school hip-hop sounds are safe in the hands of Jungle Brown, who created a stir on Spotify back in 2016 with their debut album Flight 314 even without any marketing or promotion. Now, the trio - consisting of Ric Flo, MAEAR and Tony Bones - are readying their sophomore effort Full Circle.

Kendrick Lamar
GOOD KID, m.A.A.d CITY

Good Kid, M.A.A.D City was the major label debut from soon-to-be-pretty-big rapper Kendrick Lamar. It was an introduction in more ways than one as it was a concept LP about Lamar's upbringing in the 'hood. Lyrically complex with sub-plots and red herrings galore it featured a more subtle production that has often been seen in hip-hop with brooding instrumentals and deep atmospherics leading to both underground and commercial accolades.

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Bandana

Been a long wait for this one. Anyone who’s had even a passing interest in hip-hop throughout the 2010’s knows that Pinata, the 2014 collaboration between Freddie Gibbs and Madlib, is one of the strongest rap full-lengths of the decade. The pair repeat the trick on Bandana, an LP five years in the making. Though the weight of anticipation must have been heavy for this one Gibbs and 'lib are as steely-eyed as ever - Gibbs spits iron-wool bars over Madlib’s beat odysseys. Masterpiece, obviously. Pusha T, Killer Mike and Yasiin Bey are among the guests.

Travis Scott
Astroworld

Travis Scott’s name may sound like one of those overly patriotic new country singers but I can assure you that he is something quite different. The US rapper, singer and producer has been bothering top 10s all over the place with his single Sicko Mode, so why not check out his third album, Astroworld? Double LP on Epic.

Inspectah Deck is mainly known for being a member of rap legends Wu Tang Clan and hip-hop supergroup, Czarface. He has also recently worked with Doom and Ghostface. On Chamber No. 9, he hands the production over to the promising duo of Danny Caiazzo and Boo Bundy who create a gritty landscape for Deck’s lyrical flow.

Kojaque
Deli Daydreams

Dublin producer/rapper Kojaque drops his debut LP via Soft Boy Records. Deli Daydreams is a likeable, slightly rag-tag collection that plays to Kojaque’s strengths. The beats are sloppily pretty - think Samiyam and Mndsgn - with enough space to allow Kojaque’s wide-mouthed Irish drawl room to manoeuvre. His bars are workaday savantism of the sort favoured by Wiki and Nasty Nigel. Worth a gander.

Wu-Tang Clan
Of Mics and Men

The soundtrack to the upcoming Showtime documentary series of the same name, set to be broadcast later in August, Of Mics And Men includes new music from the legendary hip-hop collective, along with exclusive skits from interviews that didn’t make the cut for the series itself. Features contributions from Ghostface Killah, RZA, Raekwon, Masta Killa and Cappadonna. 

Why?
Aokohio

Almost two decades on from Yoni Wolf’s first release, he continues to ask ‘Why?’. In the case of 'AOKOHIO' the answer seems to be something to do with an accompanying visual project and an LP broken up into short song-suites. Musically it’s another set of bombastic avant-rap from the singular Wolf. Once again the likes of Dirty Projectors and Of Montreal are your sonic touchstones for a Why? album.

Odd Nosdam
Flippies Best Tape

With a whopping 66 tracks delivered in a taut 80 minutes, Flippies Best Tape saw legendary hip-hop producer Odd Nosdam in his element, piecing together a bewildering range of source material for samples - everything from garage rock to dub and jazz - for one of the most singular sonic experiences in recent memory. Now, it gets a loving double-LP re-issue.

Common
Let Love

You heard the man - Let Love! Common proves a voice of reason yet again on his twelfth studio LP, picking through the debris of modern life with care and compassion. Tracks like the Daniel Caesar-featuring ‘Her Love’ are tender, eloquent neo-soul-rap flexes (it also helps that the ‘Her Love’ beat is an unreleased J Dilla joint). Common’s consciousness can be gritty too - try the slamming Swizz Beatz-assisted flex ‘Hercules’.

XXXTentacion
? (Deluxe)

I think they mean 5.6 million looking at the digital sales for this controversial rapper/producer. This deluxe version features the original album plus the A Ghetto Christmas Carol EP on vinyl for the first time, a poster, remixes and all sorts of ephemera. Sure to sell at least 4 units.

Beastie Boys

Yes, it's the most instrumental of all their canon -- it's the Beastie Boys with a timely reissue of The In Sound From Way Out! It was high time the Boys' raw and funky shout-free versions from their best two albums -- Ill Communication and Check Your Head -- were made available on nice crisp and loud 180-gram vinyl LP format, so here they are. Of course with the good ol' super sleazy keyboard sounds of Money Mark. Shake your rump, indeed.

Kid Cudi & Kanye West
Kids See Ghosts

Here it is at last after some delays, the short & very sweet  collaboration between artist, rapper and actor Kid Cudi and Ye, the artist and perplexing bosom buddy of Trump formerly known as Kanye West - it’s Kids See Ghosts (directed by M. Night Shyamalan). Strongly melodic hip-hop ensues. Pusha T, Louis Prima, Ty Dollar Sign and Yasiin Bey guest.

Sampa The Great
Birds And The BEE9 

Born in Zambia, based in Sydney, she prefers coming at her albums from the point of view of a mixtape, hence a wild mix of songwriting, poetics and calls for social action over hip-hop, soul, samba all tied together within the web of modern pop. In many respects an album that simultaneously appeals to those looking for the next Kendrick Lamar and for a future Mercury Music prize winner ahead of the crowd, we’re mixing up Nina Simone’s classicism and Lauryn Hill’s urban beauty.

Moor Mother
Analog Fluids of Sonic Black Holes

Moor Mother is Philadelphia musician and poet Camae Ayewa who has previously collaborated with The Bug and Justin Broadrick (Godflesh etc). This should give you some idea of where she's coming from with this her third album under the Moor Mother moniker. She uses elements of free jazz, noise, rap, reggae and industrial music to create freeform splurges and matches them with explosive subject matter on subjects such as police brutality and enslavement. Another dark missive from the undergrowth from one of today's most thought provoking artists.

Blockhead
Bubble Bath

New music from American hip-hop production legend Blockhead, presented over two slabs of wax. Although it sticks to his instrumental hip-hop oeuvre, just like his classic records for Ninja Tune over the years, Bubble Bath focuses on texture and flow rather than just beats, evoking dead-of-night ambience and the night-time economy.

Tenesha The Wordsmith
Peacocks & Other Savage Beasts

An LP of potent music from spoken word artist Tenesha The Wordsmith here. Peacocks & Other Savage Beasts is comfortable alongside both Tenesha’s contemporaries like Noname and the ancestral sounds of Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Gil Scott-Heron. Tenesha’s evocative, impassioned writing dovetails well with the hallucinatory Afrofuturist jazz soup behind her here.

Portishead
Portishead

Essential Bristolian soundtracky trip-hoppers second LP from back in 1997.  This is the one that eschewed their debut's occasional pop moves and delved deep into sample-delica and disturbing textures. It's an intimate and occasionally frightening listen full of regret and pathos between the grooves.

Chris Rivers
G.I.T.U.

'G.I.T.U.' stands for Greatest in the Universe which is what we presume Chris Rivers thinks either he or his new album is. Rivers may be confident but so far his career has been in the shadow of his dad Big Pun,famous for his work with Fat Joe and the Terror Squad. It's time then for Chris to step out from the shadows of his father and tell the story of his life experiences so far.

Joell Ortiz
Monday

Mondays are just awful for those of us on the working treadmill. Early starts, last night's Antiques Roadshow just a golden distant memory. Joell Ortiz loves Mondays though and that's because his job is rap and the start of the week is the opportunity to get back to work. His work is full of the verbal wordplay of hip-hop's golden age and shows a quick and dexterous delivery perfectly exemplified in blitzkrieg opener 'Captain'.

Dan The Automator
Booksmart (Original Motion Picture Score)

Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut 'Booksmart' has garnered plenty of plaudits, not least for its charming soundtrack. We’re used to hearing Dan The Automator in hip-hop mode, and you can be sure to find plenty of breaks and beats across his compositions here. However, these more standard tricks come twinned with some of the most widescreen and ambitious arrangements the producer has ever attempted - chamber strings, 70’s cop-show guitars and library funk are all thrown into the mix on the 'Booksmart OST'.

Octavian
Endorphins

Endorphins is the latest mixtape, and second full-length release, from rapper Octavian. Octavian is part-Angolan, part-French and part-British. He has been impressing people all over the place and won the BBC Sound Of 2019 award. Endorphins includes contributions from Theophilus London, A$AP Ferg, Jessie Ware, Smokepurpp and Skepta, among others.

Massive Attack
Blue Lines

Ah 'Blue Lines'. That time hip-hop, reggae, R&B, and soul all together under the mysterious cinematic umbrella of Massive Attack. The first time their special blend of breakbeats, sampling and rapping was heard and it's presence is still being felt 25+ years on. The usual guests are in place, Horace Andy, Tricky, Neneh Cherry and of course Shara Nelson on the stone cold classic 'Unfinished Sympathy'.  

Tyler, The Creator
Igor

Despite only just being released, Igor has already been pretty much universally recognised as one of the best records of Tyler, The Creator’s career. And who could deny this thing? The latest LP from the OFWGKTA badboy-turned-goodboy is as gorgeous as they come, a heady brew of neo-soul, The Neptunes-esque beats, hypnagogic pop and outsider art. More of this please.

DJ Yoda, an artist much beloved of the summer festival circuit, here develops his craft beyond funky beatmaking, bringing in live instrumental artists to complement his samples and tasty turntablism. Songs are the key here, with musicians like Theon Cross, Nubya Garcia and Eva Lazarus helping Yoda craft a real jazz and soul mood. Home Cooking is released by Lewis Recordings.

Kool Keith
Computer Technology

The inimitable Kool Keith returns with another serving of surreal, abstract and frequently scatological hip-hop with another new album, Computer Technology. Produced in its entirety with long-term collaborator Junkaz Lou, it’s another brilliant example of Keith’s twisted take on rap that he’s cultivated for 35 years.

Beastie Boys
Paul's Boutique

Its interesting to remember the fuss that was made over the Beastie Boys when they first came to parochial old Britain. For one this they started a craze in which young hoodlums stole badges off Volkswagen Passats to the anger of dads across the country. Paul's Boutique was probably the first sign that this was not just some New York novelty sent to ruin your hard earned hatchback. A more varied and sonically experimental work, it was a multi-hued record full of bravado, three-pronged vocal attacks but also inventive sampling which re-wrote the rule book of what hip-hop could be.

Massive Attack took the trip-hop sound they had helped define and mixed it with a more rock-y energy to make something intriguing and unique. Comes with a disc of dub remixes by Mad Professor.

‘Root Down’, of course, is one of the iconic Beastie Boys joints, a highlight of the classic Ill Communication LP when that dropped back in 1994. A year later the trio issued an EP based around the track. The Root Down EP features the original along with two other versions - the hard-headed ‘Free Zone Mix’ and a jazzy boom-bap rendering by Prince Paul. The rest of the record is filled with live tracks and a hidden bonus beat.

One of the first hip hop acts to operate as a fully-fledged band, The Roots combine live instrumentation and percussion with traditional sampling elements and the dense prose of Black Thought. Their fourth album is a stone-cold classic of hip hop where jazzy beats collide with politically conscious wordplay. It includes energetic numbers such as 'Dynamite!', 'Step Into The Relm', and 'You Got Me' which features fellow Soulquarian Erykah Badu. Their breakthrough earned them a Grammy nomination, but they unfortunately lost out to Eminem on the night.

A lovely album where prime beat maker Madlib was given the run of the Blue Note catalogue and was pretty much told 'do what you like'.

More light-hearted and less overtly stern than its immediate predecessor, the previous year’s 'God Loves Ugly', it’s an opportunity to revisit a critical point in the group’s journey.

Atmosphere
God Loves Ugly

Way back in 2002, Atmosphere's 'God Loves Ugly' was doing the emo rap thing long before it became the chart topping behemoth it is in 2019. Back then it was a bit more independent, a bit more raw. A record as interesting for fans of 2000s hip hop as it is for those who are fans of Juice WRLD and his ilk.

Anderson .Paak
Oxnard

Oxnard is the album Anderson.Paak always wanted to make. As a schoolboy in his hometown of Oxnard, Southern California, he would dream of making an album that could match up to The Blueprint by Jay-Z, College Dropout by Kanye West or Documentary by The Game. The talented multi-instrumentalist has certainly pulled out all the stops, releasing on Dr. Dre’s label, and getting Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Kadhja Bonet, J. Cole and Pusha T to make guest appearances. 2LP on Aftermath/12 Tone Music.

Boogie Down Productions
Criminal Minded

In listing the greatest albums in hip-hop history, one title never seems to stray from the upper echelons, no matter how many years pass: Boogie Down Productions’ undisputed classic from 1986, Criminal Minded. Released amidst a battle between BDP and MC Shan that would redefine the New York rap landscape as it was then known, the album, which features the songs “South Bronx,” “Criminal Minded” and “The Bridge is Over,” captures the excitement, urgency and raw power that embodies hip-hop culture as we know it, with KRS-One’s aggressive yet intelligent lyricism backed by Scott La Rock’s hard-hitting, stripped-down beats. A true classic.

Run-DMC
King Of Rock

The follow-up which arrived less than 12 months after their ground-breaking self-titled debut, 1985’s King of Rock comprehensively proved that Run-DMC were here to stay, and so was hip-hop. The eponymous lead single ‘King of Rock’ may be the tentpole of the album, but the other eight tracks are fleet-footed demonstrations of tag-team vocals and rough-hewn beats.

Bonobo
Linked

The evergreen Bonobo (aka Simon Green) anticipates a summer full of DJ sets with 'Linked', a club ready slow burner that is as atmospheric as any of his previous work. It follows 2017's Migration and 2019's fabric Presents compilation. Green is also responsible for the incredible photograph on the sleeve. It's a beautiful world isn't it?

Jean Grae & Quelle Chris
Everything's Fine

New album from the recently engaged hip-hop artists Jean Grae and Quelle Chris. A political album about our impulse, when every conceivable thing is going wrong, to say Everything's Fine. They do this with help from comedians Michael Che, Hannibal Buress, Nick Offerman, John Hodgman. Comedians after all are often the best at deconstructing the weird things people do.

MF DOOM
Special Herbs Volume 1 & 2

MF Doom’s Special Herbs series of instrumental releases has grown to be the stuff of legends over the year, as well you’d expect for a producer of his stature. Here we have a reissue of the first two volumes on vinyl, a relief for anyone who missed out the first time. Plus! All the tracks are named after herbs and spices. Awesome.

Mndsgn
Snaxx

Not to be confused with 2018’s Snax - note the extra ‘x’ - Snaxx is a new beat-tape from popular dude Mndsgn. Snaxx is actually the Snax sequel, so if you got a whiff of the previous LP you’ll know what to expect here. This is a set of breezy, funky hip-hop and neo-soul that draws equally from the Chill Vibes (tm) of Homeshake and the Brainfeeder beat style. Oh, and it’s pronounced ‘mind design’ by the way.

Nightmares On Wax
Carboot Soul

Nightmares On Wax provided the constant chill vibes for Warp Records back in the day, and 'Carboot Soul' kept a steady hand on proceedings, melding together trip-hop sounds with the same old jazz affections and haze of 'Smoker's Delight'. It's being reissued with all its siblings as part of the N.O.W. Is The Time Campaign, which will hopefully immortalise this smooth type of easy listening.

Drake
If Your Reading This You're Too Late

If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late is either an album or a mixtape, but whatever it is, it grabbed the whole internet’s attention when it suddenly dropped without warning last year. Drake can certainly play the game. Now this high-grade release gets pressed to wax for a double LP issue on Island.

Sarathy Korwar
More Arriving

Sarathy Korwar now lives in the UK. He was born in the USA and grew up in India. His music has grown from a Jazz foundation to incorporate traditional and modern indian, electronic, rap and folk sounds over time. More Arriving is his second album and is fired up by a divided Britain and his own experiences of living here. Confrontational, at times abrasive, Korwar is sending his passionate message out there.

Anderson .Paak
Ventura

After the hard-bitten Oxnard, Anderson .Paak chills out a bit with new LP Ventura. This is super-soulful and super-funky hip-hop from the guy who’s probably the leader in that field right now. You’re looking at the psychedelic neo-soul of Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly but, like, a fair bit mellower. Ventura boasts an extremely impressive guest list - Andre 3000, Smokey Robinson, Brandy and Nate Dogg are all on this thing.

Epic Beard Men
This Was Supposed To Be Fun

Second release but first official full-length album from indie-rap collaboration project Epic Beard Men, consisting of Sage Francis and B. Dolan. Following on from their debut EP Season 1 released last year, This Was Supposed To Be Fun marries the carefully curated results of crate-digging with lyrics that mix gravity with levity.

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, Don’t Believe the Hype, Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos, Rebel Without a Pause.... She Watch Channel Zero?! samples Def Jam labelmates Slayer, though it’s ironic to hear Flavor Flav being judgmental about viewing habits, having since been responsible for one of the worst sitcoms in TV history. Still, no questionable late career choices can overshadow this explosive statement of righteous black rage and defiance, that’s utterly uncompromising and iconic from the title down. Almost an hour’s worth crammed onto this LP but it sounds phenomenal.

Boca 45
Forty Five

Boca 45, AKA, Scott Hendy from Bristol, has been DJ-ing for the past 20-odd years using the concise 7” single to fill dancefloors. The format is limited in length, which generally means you get a lean pop hit, allowing Boca 45 to make punchy sets. His original offering got him to play opening night at Banksy’s 2015 Dismaland show.

Archy Marshall
A New Place 2 Drown

Archy Marshall (also known as King Krule) isn't one for sitting still. He currently has three monikers including The Return of Pimp Shrimp. It might be helping to destroy his career but if it keeps him influenced then it's our gain as his music is invariably excellent. Here he soundtracks a book that was compiled by his brother Jack with a series of flickering late night atmospheric meditations stealing from hip-hop, UK garage and dub but always with his particular panache in check. Originally digital only, this is the first vinyl pressing.

This reissue of Fear Of God II: Let Us Pray is a good way to do that. First released in 2011, it says the ex-Clipse man working with the likes of Tyler, The Creator and Kanye West.

Nothing Great About Britain

Grime up-and-comer slowthai could be a big fan of mid-2000’s indie also-rans The Holloways - there’s a chance that Nothing Great About Britain is titled after the ‘Generator’ group’s 2006 LP So This Is Great Britain?. Mind you, that’s pretty much where the similarities between the acts end. The Northampton MC goes hard on his debut full-length, blending the sharp-tongued fury of early Dizzee Rascal with the observational nous of Mike Skinner. Probably the start of something.

Kate Tempest
Let Them Eat Chaos

Kate Tempest's 2014 album 'Everybody Down' earned her a Mercury nomination, and that is just one accomplishment notched up by this serial high-achiever. Performing live at the age of 16 saw her securing gigs opening for John Cooper Clarke and Billy Bragg among others. Add a Ted Hughes award for her writing and a nod from the Poetry Society, and it all becomes pretty impressive. 'Let them Eat Chaos' is a long poem, written for performance. The vinyl includes download code.

Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly

I'm not sure about pimping a butterfly but Kendrick Lamar certainly knows the smooth. Sampling and influenced by the '70s greats of Parliament, Clinton (George not me) and Marvin Gaye, he twists black anger into new and danceable shapes. Challenging at times but sounds like it's going to be a decent follow up.

Kate Tempest
Everybody Down

“Wow”. Not my word but the word of none other than Chuck D. on hearing the debut album by British singer and poet Kate Tempest. Indeed the album was something of a revelation on release. Tempest's gritty street words on prostitution and drug addiction blending uniquely with Dan Carey's lively and inventive production leading to the album being nominated for a Mercury prize in 2014.

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’).
