Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Thuggin' EP

Re-issue of marvellous 12" initially released ahead of the duo's debut album released back in those hazy days of 2012. Is this good? Of course it its. Its motherfeckin' unbelievable. Madlib's skills are almost unsurpassed in his field, it's as smooth as silk and Gibbs vocals cut in just the right way. This ain't no Snoop snoozeathon. He rea...view item »

Why?
Alopecia (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

Ah 2008.... when we nodded to the sounds of 'Alopecia', the Brudenell Social Club full to bursting with backpacks. All those guys are dads now so it's time to squirrel away bits of the childcare money on a lavish re-treatment of the album featuring a bonus demos LP and Boards of Canada and Dntel remixes. It's the 'star' record, the 'road' r...view item »

Cypress Hill

Reissue of Cypress Hill’s second full length album Black Sunday, which is arguably their biggest and greatest. Pretty much every track has become classic since it’s release in 1993. Includes huge hitters Insane In the Brain, I Wanna Get high, Hits From The Bong. Double LP from We A...view item »

Quazarz: Born On A Gangster Star

Afrofuturist, cosmic hip-hop experimentalists Shabazz Palaces release their third full-length for Seattle’s Sub Pop label.

Cohenbeats
Daily Affirmations

After releasing a pretty extensive catalogue of music through his own Bandcamp, Tel Aviv based producer Cohenbeats has been snapped up by the beatmaker flagship label Stones Throw for his debut label full length. Filled with obscure Israeli samples and pushed through an LA beat needle. Off-kilter, and gets your head poppin&rsquo...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 Funeral Balloons, new LP The Art Of The Sample is full of crisp funk and soul instrumenta...view item »

MIKE
Black Soap

MIKE, the latest in the long line of NYC rap prodigies, will see his debut LP Black Soap drop on the prestigious Lex Records (Danger Mouse, BADBADNOTGOOD). Despite only being 18, MIKE clearly has a good head on him, spitting bars wise beyond his years over these nice lo...view item »

Cypress Hill
Elephants On Acid

Elephants On Acid. Eight years to name your record, and that’s what you come up with. Cypress Hill are old enough to know better. Anyway, the group’s ninth LP is … well, it’s Cypress Hil...view item »

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.  ...view item »

The Streets
A Grand Don't Come For Free

Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material. Unavailable on vinyl for the best part of the intervening decade, Be With Records marks its second release by issuing Mike Skinner’s elec...view item »

J Dilla
Ruff Draft

J DILLA is back from the dead with what I think is a reissue of the 'Ruff Draft' LP. Nothing like cashing in on a mans death eh? Just kidding. This was originally released in 2003 on his own Mummy Records label. 'Nothing Like This' has just come on. It's a fucking corker of a track that I been ...view item »

Guru
Jazzmatazz

2018 marks a quarter-century since the drop of Guru’s groundbreaking Jazzmatazz, Volume 1. With the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Ghostface Killah making great records with a live jazz group in recent years, this re-pressing of the late Gang Starr MC’s 1993 ma...view item »

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...view item »

Denzel Curry
TA13OO

The press release for Denzel Curry’s long-awaited third LP TA1300 (pronounced ‘Taboo’, though you could probably get away with calling it ‘Tattoo’) is written in all-caps. It’s fitting considering that, once this record is on, you won’t be able to concentrate on anything else. C...view item »

Sweet Valley
Eternal Champ II

Sweet Valley is a mysterious place where you're quite likely to get lost in a hazy fog of cannabis smoke and never re-emerge. Additionally, and not-quite coincidentally, Sweet Valley is also a duo of stoner-rock musicians who just happen to be brothers. The Williams brethren of slurred-out California are also seemingly quite tak...view item »

Sweet Valley
Eternal Champ

Sweet Valley are an experimental stoner rock-esque musical outfit and this is a thirteen track reissue of Eternal Valley on Ghost Ramp.

Over Skies

Precocious young MPC botherer quickly, quickly follows up March’s Paths LP with a new five-track release. q, q is just 17 years old, but Over Skies is inventive and mature in a manner that belies his young years.

Float On

Haldern Pop (Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Dry The River) release the third LP by Toronto hip-hop group The Lytics. While the five-piece’s Souls Of Mischief/Pharcyde-y boom-bap might not be much in vogue at the moment, on Float On t...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 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 »

The Internet
Hive Mind

You know all the kids who get onto the ‘Jazz & Pop’ course at music college and end up in naff neo-soul ensembles? The Internet is the band they all think they're in. Hive Mind, the fourth LP from Syd The Kyd et al, is as cool as a cloud of smoke being blown by someone in silhouette. The...view item »

Migos
Culture II

Migos’ Culture II finally gets a vinyl release. You may have heard by now that this LP is reeeeeeeeeally long - twenty-four tracks long, as a matter of fact.

Wu-Tang Clan
Enter The Wu Tang (36 Chambers)

The Man From Mo' Wax

The Man From Mo' Wax is the title of a new documentary film about -- yes, you guessed it -- the Mo' Wax label which was run by head honcho and DJ James Lavelle between 1992 and 2002. During that time the label remained a pioneering presence and its influence has had a long reach on trip-hop and beat-makers to this day. ...view item »

Death Grips
Year of the Snitch

Year Of The Snitch is the sixth album by Californian experimental hip-hop punks Death Grips. The three-piece of MC Ride, Andy Morin and Zach Hill like to give very little away about their records prior to release and the same is true here. One thing that’s guaranteed is that this will supply some aggression catharsis for o...view item »

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib
Deeper

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib get a timely repress of their sought-after 2013 release, the Deeper EP. All six tracks are included -- vocals, instrumentals and bonus beats.

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&rsquo...view item »

Eric B. & Rakim
Don't Sweat The Technique

On their fourth and final LP, Eric B. & Rakim left the stage with one of their most eloquent and soulful performances. Don’t Sweat The Technique combined the strutting jazzy hip-hop style that the pair had patented from Paid In Full-onwards with impassioned bars that took in everything from the G...view item »

Stormzy
Gang Signs & Prayer

I keep seeing him in my morning Metro. He tweets doesn't he? And he's gone from grime king to global superstar following appearances on Jools Holland and with Kanye. This record shows him immersing himself in the sort of songwriting and production that may have been unexpected from listening to his raw early work. It's already s...view item »

Knife Knights
1 Time Mirage

Given that the pair of Shabazz Palaces LPs that dropped in 2017 really stank out the place, it’s probably a good thing that Ishmael Butler has found a new project to focus on. Here he teams up with Erik Blood - who, among other things, was engineer for SP’s Lese Majesty - fo...view item »

Ratking
So It Goes

Vonnegut rappers Ratking offer a debut of tremendous force and undeniable quick with So It Goes, a tribute and walk-in atlas of their home city, New York.

Kanye West
ye

The shy and retiring Kanye West drops the eighth LP of what, to this point, has been a relatively uneventful career. By Yeezy’s standards, ye is short and sweet. Seven tunes, about twenty-five minutes in length, and only a couple of guests. Barely more than an EP really. But the thing about this Kanye fella is whe...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. Now, however, there's something meaty to get your teeth into; a massive 17-song double LP which, as a sticker on the front boasts, "feat. all the mother fuck...view item »

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.

Knxwledge
Gladwemet

Knxwledge continues to throw down the gauntlet to beatmakers the world over. This new Stones Throw 7” splits neatly down the middle. Side A sees the LA producer partner with Traffic on ‘Relapse’, a smooth-as-hell tune that sounds like Michael Jackson’s &l...view item »

Drake
Scorpion

Drizzy/Champagne Papi/October’s Very Own/Aubrey Graham/Wheelchair Jimmy/Drake continues to dominate the world of pop with a polite ruthlessness.

Eric B. & Rakim
Paid In Full

Eric B. and Rakim's Paid In Full is one of their two rap classics that, although it's a little dated sounding, most rap fans will love. Every song here is good or great, and Rakim is definitely just a great MC. He's not one of my favourites, but I'm pretty sure everyone will like him. He flows very well and his delivery is interesting and well d...view item »

Beastie Boys
Hot Sauce Committee Part Two

Upon first hearing this album, I thought it was a little top-heavy. I felt like the great, fleshed out songs were on the first half and the shorter, sketchier tracks were saved for the end. Although it is true that the shorter tracks are at the end, that by no means indicates that the songs are worse...in fact the best song "Here's A Little Some...view item »

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment.

Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of h...view item »

Joe Mansfield’s ‘Beat Box: A Drum Machine Obsession’ coffee table book is a tasteful little affair that once perused will give you ultimate drum machine jealousy.

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 ...view item »
