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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

His music has grown from a Jazz foundation to incorporate traditional and modern indian, electronic, rap and folk sounds over time.

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.

Fongola

KOKOKO! not to be confused with the similarly stylised KOKOROKO is the Kinshasa based group formed of not just musicians, but dancers and most intriguingly, inventors. Fongola is energetic, percussive, and can write a catchy hook, the sort of band who are almost certainly fun live. on Transgressive.

lojii & Swarvy
Due Rent

With the small buzz generated recently by lojii’s excellent Lofeye LP, it seems a good time for Portland label Fresh Selects (Mndsgn, Knwledge) to re-release Due Rent, the collaborative record he made with Philly beatsmith Swarvy back in 2016. It’s an LP of quiet anger - lojii’s muffled yet pointed raps come off like Earl Sweatshirt at the nadir of his self-loathing, and the beats sound like early MF Doom tapes played through a car stereo on a really hot day. Good stuff.

Black Pumas
Black Pumas

Black Pumas are a funk/soul/hip-hop duo comprising of Adrian Quesada of Brownout and Grupo Fantasma and the previously unheard of but undoubtedly talented Eric Burton. The band made an indelible impression on many that saw them at 2019’s SXSW festival. Their self-titled debut is available on LP and CD on ATO Records.

Black Taffy
Elder Mantis

One of them there beat tapes here. Elder Mantis falls on the more melodic side of the beatmaker world - think Clams Casino rather than J Dilla - and his new LP Black Taffy is another lush listen from the MPC-bothering Texan. Anyone who’s had some fun with recent full-lengths from Black Milk and Budgie should give Black Taffy a go.

King Geedorah
Take Me To Your Leader

We’ll let you in on a little secret: King Geedorah is an alias (a mask, if you will) of MF Doom’s, inspired by a Godzilla monster.

Fantastic underground hip-hop with mighty flows and the kind of samples that only come from years of crate-digging and mad intuition. Double LP reissue on Big Dada.

When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold (10 Year Anniversary Edition)

This thing’s ten years old already?! Blimey, that came around quick. With When Life Gives You Lemons, You Paint That Shit Gold, Atmosphere solidified their rep as one of the foremost duos in underground rap. In fact, this album was so successful that the group were briefly a very much overground act - the record shifted 36,000 units in the USA in the first week alone. The combination of Ant’s pretty post-bap beats and MC Slug’s new penchant for narrative storytelling remains winning a decade on.

Aesop Rock & TOBACCO
Malibu Ken

Who knew we needed Tobacco, frontman for Black Moth Super Rainbow, to build fascinating and nauseating beats for Aesop Rock? Tobacco's solo stuff strays from the relatively poppy sound of BMSR towards darker beats and stranger worlds, perfectly built for Aesop Rock. The word-heavy New-Yorker turned San-Franciscan as always delivers high-paced raps on their new collaboration Malibu Ken.

Young Fathers
Tape One / Tape Two

Essential re-issue of the early years of eventual Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers. 'Tape 1' and 'Tape 2' saw the band honing their near unclassifiable sound which blends hip-hop with influences from indie, jazz and soul. 'Tape 1' in particular is totally magnificent  - a call to arms that ensured that we were in the presence of something really special.

The album is out on 2x180gr vinyl, and sounds as rich as it ever has. What times we live in!

Abstract Orchestra
Madvillain Vol. 2

Rob Mitchell’s Abstract Orchestra go back to the well for another edition of their Madvillain homage albums. As anyone who copped 2018’s Volume 1 will know, these records feature the beats from Madlib and MF Doom’s legendary collaboration reinterpreted by a contemporary big band. As such, Madvillain Volume 2 is sort of like Count Basie for a post-?uestlove world.

Sleaford Mods
Austerity Dogs

Austerity Dogs is the 6th album by Nottingham duo Sleaford Mods, but it’s the one that got them noticed. Since its release in 2013, the band have gone from strength to strength, being a necessary mouthpiece and cathartic outlet for many in the these austere times. They mix a punk snarl with pepped-up hip-hop beats and socially aware lyrics to make an original, energetic, angry and often witty statement that has become essential.

Tyga
Taste

Tyga - a man, it should be noted, who is not exactly renowned for his good taste - dropped a single called ‘Taste’ back in 2018. A track that featured Offset and saw Tyga rhyme the word ‘claim’ with itself three times in almost as many seconds, it turned out to be his biggest hit since the (in)famous ‘Rack City’ seven years earlier. Now 'Taste' is given the ultimate accolade of a massive hit single - the commemorative picture disc edition. Looks nice eh.

Flying Lotus
Flamagra

Fresh off making people throw up in the cinema with Kuso, Flying Lotus is back at it again with his latest album Flamagra. As always, the album is a frenetic maelstrom of hip-hop, R&B, jazz, soul, funk, beats, and whatever else Mr Lotus managed to put on between joints. He's also managed to fit in enough guests for a decent music festival with Solange, Tierra Whack and George Clinton appearing as well as lots (and lots) more.

Jack Waterson
Adrian Younge presents Jack Waterson

Is there anything Adrian Younge won't present? I'm yet to find something, but do let me know if you have any luck. On Jack Waterson Younge and Waterson marry their expertise in hip hop and psychedelia to make a record that is worthy of a press release that mentions acid. Think Tame Impala with breakbeats. On Linear Labs.

Skinny Pelembe
Dreaming Is Dead Now

Skinny Pelembe’s debut album, Dreaming Is Dead, mixes dub, hip-hop, sun-drenched folk and blissed-out soul. Giles Peterson has championed the Johannesburg-born, Doncaster-raised artist.

Apollo XXI

Here we have the long-awaited debut LP from The Internet’s Steve Lacy. Though Apollo XXI is Lacy’s first solo full-length, we doubt this precocious young chap was feeling the pressure too much - when you’ve made beats for Kendrick Lamar, given a TED Talk and walked the runway at Paris Fashion week before turning 20 you probably don’t even know what pressure is. Lacy’s carefree approach translates into this gorgeous neo-soul set. Dropping just as the weather heats up, Apollo XXI is a perfect summer jam collection.

One Time for Your Mind

ewon12bit is a Finnish producer who makes his music from vinyl samples, analogue tapes and some classic equipment. His sample-based hip-hop harks back to the golden age of hip-hop in the early ‘90s. One Time For Your Mind is an album of laid back beats à la NYC back in the day. I hope he gets to visit New York one day. LP on Phatventures.

Mahatma X
A Mobtown Suite Vol. II

This MALK kid, eh? Fresh from winning our Album Of The Year with 'Death From A Love', here he returns with his future-legendary hip-hop trio Mahatma X and a welcome follow-up to the acclaimed A Mobtown Suite Vol 1. Volume 2 carries on from where Volume 1 left off, but puts it in technicolour adding an incredible array of loops and beats creating a sound collage of dusty beats, Avalanches-like magpie enthusiasm and haunting nods to the golden age of hip-hop.

Joe Budden
Rage & The Machine

Re-issue of the eighth and final solo album by former Slaughterhouse rapper Joe Budden, originally released in late 2016. Rage & The Machine may have grabbed headlines at the time for Budden’s feuds with other hip-hop stars such as Drake and Meek Mill, but its focussed and political lyrics make the music within interesting and worthy.

Freddie Gibbs
Shadow Of A Doubt

A much-needed re-issue of the second studio album by American rapper Freddie Gibbs, himself teaming up once again with producer Madlib for a collaboration in 2019. Shadow Of A Doubt was originally released back in 2015, and won much critical praise for Gibbs’s versatility and stylistic diversity. Vinyl edition includes five extra tracks compared to the CD version.

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 electronic soap opera on this format.

Nobody
All Too Familiar

Nobody here turns away from the world of samples and creates an album with live instruments. Delightfully, All Too Familiar’s guitar-bass-drums-and keys set-up still produces some really head-knodding tracks, with the sonic breadth and fizzing play of ideas that you’d expect from Nobody’s past works. Cool stuff on Ubiquity Recordings.

Mac Miller
Blue Slide Park

Mac Miller left us way, way too soon. For someone who's career was so tragically short, Miller had more than his share of many great moments - plenty of hit singles, a (posthumous) Grammy win for 2018 LP Swimming, and a number one album in the form of debut full-length Blue Slide Park. Rostrum are now reissuing Miller’s opening statement, full of head-nodding beats and playful rhymes, on double-vinyl. 26 is no age to die.

Loyle Carner
Not Waving, But Drowning

Loyle Carner returns with Not Waving, But Drowning - his much-anticipated follow-up to 2017’s Yesterday’s Gone. The rapper manages something that many artists fail to do - balancing popularity whilst actually being pretty good. Expect more sharp, observational lyrics and effortless flow. Sampha, Jorja Smith and Jordan Rakei are among the guests stars. LP and CD on AMF.

Vinnie Paz x Tragedy Khadafi
Camouflage Regime

Big and bold hip hop collaboration between Vinnie Paz and MC Tragedy Khadafi (of Juice Crew). On Camouflage Regime the duo finally get together for a full length project after killing it on a couple singles. Not even out at time of writing but already sounds classic. Features guest spots from Iron Sheikh and ILL BILL. On Enemy Soil.

DJ Muggs x Roc Marciano
KAOS

There’s a comfort to knowing that, whatever mutations hip-hop goes through, there will always be a strain of it that sounds like it was cooked up in a Brooklyn tenement block during the Clinton presidency. DJ Muggs and Roc Marciano have long been prime exponents of this such sound, so their collaboration on new ten-track record KAOS makes sense. The modern ears it’s now apparent just how much influence Wiki has taken from these two.

Odd Nosdam
Mirrors

Is 2019 the year when everyone finally gives in and accepts that Odd Nosdam is one of the finest producers on the planet? His latest record sees the Anticon co-founder and clOUDDEAD alumni release MIRRORS  - an album he made entirely out of found sounds and samples from rare and private press vinyl. Sure to be an important addition to his already impressive canon of work.

Dialect / Talkboy
In My Zone / Wasting Time

The latest 7” from Yorkshire singles club Come Play With Me puts MC Dialect alongside Leeds group Talkboy. ‘In My Zone’ and ‘Wasting Time’ are rather contrasting tunes - Dialect’s a grime tongue-twister with a flow that recalls Ghetts, while Talkboy are a peppy indie-pop band - but for whatever reason they work nicely back-to-back here. Are we witnessing the rebirth of grindie? This Norman Records™ lackey surely hopes so.

Cypress Hill
Black Sunday

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 Are Vinyl.

DJ Shadow
Endtroducing.....

DJ Shadow’s sample-built 1996 debut album Entroducing….. has all the drama you’d expect from a title with ellipses two-thirds longer than the standard. As tense as it slaps, this is truly one of the the best instrumental trip/hip-hop albums ever made. The deluxe edition comes with expanded liner notes, photos, alternate versions, and remixes from the likes of Kuedo and Teklife.

Mac Miller
Watching Movies With The Sound Off

Time will tell if the late Mac Miller comes to be considered as one of the greats. What we can definitively say is that, despite him passing tragically young, Mac’s star will shine bright for years. Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Miller’s 2013 sophomore LP, was the record where people really started to take notice of this Jewish stoner from Pittsburgh. More musically and lyrically ambitious than Blue Slide Park, this crisp hip-hop record boasts an enviable features list that includes Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator. Watching Movies With The Sound Off has now been reissued via Rostrum.

Quelle Chris
Guns

Detroit rap is having a moment right now, and Quelle Chris is one of those leading the charge. His latest LP Guns is one of those records that forces you to pay attention. Across this album Chris brings Danny Brown-style bizarro-auteur vibes, the crushed soul-hop of Black Milk, MF DOOM’s command and Kendrick Lamar’s wisdom. It’s a heady brew and one that will likely end of in plenty ‘Best of 2019’ lists. Guns features a diverse guest list - Mach Hommy, Bilal Salaam and James Acaster all show face. Which Chris indeed.

The Carters
Everything Is Love

The Carters are a duo made up of obscure musical couple Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z. I jest, of course, everybody knows who they are. Yes, is the mega superstar couple who have finally got together musically too. Everything Is Love, as you can probably imagine the album mixes rap and R&B. It has been reviewed well pretty much everywhere so why not give it a spin yourself? LP and CD on Columbia

The Streets
The Hardest Way To Make An Easy Living

This was the third the Streets album and the first to openly discuss the 'pressures' of fame. It was later described by Mike Skinner as a "guilt ridden indulgence" but is an interesting document of an artist trying to hold it together whilst slowly losing their mind. First re-pressing since the giddy year of 2006 and now comes on not one but two heavyweight discs.  

Kool Keith
Blast

A new 7” EP from the indefatigable hip-hop icon Kool Keith, this time stepping out from behind his many and varying monikers. This shark-coloured vinyl contains two brand new tracks on one side, with rap/punk group Planet B hooking up with him once again for a remix of ‘Blast’ and a mash-up of ‘Uncrushable’ with Dead Cross’s ‘Church of the Motherf***ers’ on the flip.

XXXTentacion
SKINS

Pour one out for our boy XXXtentacion, no longer with us but represented here with a posthumous album of ten tracks. ‘Bad!’ is already a smash hit online, so we might expect a great many people to come and hear it in the wider context of the SKINS album. Released by Bad Vibes Forever / Empire.

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 prominent vocals and ultra-swung grooves place it in the newer school of Fatima, Zara McFarlane et al, but the flex of the thing rivals D’Angelo’s best years. Some people should be taking notes.

Marlowe
Marlowe

If you like your rap rappity and your hip hoppity, then Mello Music Group is probably the label for you. The Arizona imprint, now more than a decade old, cranks out wise-old-head boom-bap like clockwork and has laid to wax LPs by artists including Guilty Simpson and Quelle Chris. This seventeen-track eponymous drop from Marlowe - a North Carolina duo of beatmaker L’Orange and MC Solemn Brigham - sees MMG delivering once again.

Everything Is Recorded
Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell

Richard Russell may have made his name as the boss of XL Records, but he has some production pedigree too - among others, he’s helmed LPs for Bobby Womack and Ibeyi. The cosmopolitan, soulful production style he displayed on those records translates nicely to Everything Is Recorded By Richard Russell. It features a slew of big-name guests - Giggs, Kamasi Washington, Wiki, Sampha and more. The album basically ends up being an enjoyable synthesis of all facets of the XL sound.

Loyle Carner
Yesterday's Gone

Loyle Carner presents his debut full-length album, Yesterday’s Gone. The Croydon-based rapper is clearly serious about family and roots: as well as various lyrics and the lovely Carner family snap used for the album artwork, Yesterday’s Gone even features Loyle’s mum and dad themselves, as well as Kwes, Rebel Kleff and a gospel choir.

Nightmares On Wax
Smokers Delight

The Nightmares on Wax re-issue campaign wouldn't be complete without this, their most well known and well regarded album. As our customer reviewer Andrew righty points out, this was the album they went from bleep to bong and is full of classic mid 90's style laid-back smoky grooves.
