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 ...view item »


Shabazz Palaces
Black Up

It's Sub Pop week for Business Lady this week and damn, the label is barely recognizable as the same label that inspired my childhood interest in music. Saying that, they occasionally snap up a quality artist here and there with Shabazz Palaces being a good example of the diversification of the label over the years. In fact, I don't think t...view item »


Apollo Brown & Locksmith

The Nonce
1990

They may want to reconsider that name but this is a rare chance to get one of the great lost albums from the Golden Age of Hip-Hop.  Initially part of the Project Blowed collective these two 17 year olds were considered innovators of the LA Hip Hop Underground and this album contains material thought by all involved to have been chucked in the ...view item »

De La Soul's Plug 1 & Plug 2 present First Serve
First Serve

Great concept album by the great De La Soul. Though I am confused because I thought it was a solo album but that is De La for ya... always paving their own way. Dave is hilarious, it has been awhile since I enjoyed the skits on an album so much. It's not often that a hip-hop album can be charming and touching while not being corny. "First Serve" ac...view item »

Black Panther: The Album – Music from and Inspired By

Probably the cultural event of 2018 that will live longest in the memory, Marvel’s Black Panther really is an outstanding film.

Knxwledge
Hud Dreems

Fresh new beats from Knxwledge, making his debut with Stones Throw Records.

Mndsgn
Yawn Zen

MNDSGn is a hip-hop producer who makes beats for the Klipm0de crew. It's pronounced "mind design", by the way, which should be totally obvious but for some reason isn't.

Quasimoto
Talkin’ Shit

When Quasimoto's ace 'Yessir Whatever' anthology came out a few months ago, there was a bit of a disappointment with the sleeves, which were originally supposed to feature a peel-off sticker so that Lord Quas's visage could be removed from the sleeve to reveal some cartoon guts. Disastrously, however, the stickers were too sticky so nobody got t...view item »

KMD
Mr. Hood

Everybody remembers KMD for launching a young Zev Love X’s career, during which he became known as MF DOOM.

Part of your hip hop education, son!...view item »


Dabrye

Dabrye
Instrmntl

The third track from this record (No Child Of God) was, apparently, on a mac & cheese 'commercial' in 2015.

Instrmntl by Dabrye has been granted a reissued from the mighty powers that be on Ghostly and ...view item »


Thundercat + OG Ron C & The Chopstars

Queens based artist designer and all round mystery person SHIRT is the first hip-hop artist to be signed to Third Man.

Action Bronson
Blue Chips 7000

Once confused by our stock buyer with London blues outfit the Archie Bronson Quartet, Action Bronson is instead an American rapper with a neat line in humorous wordplay and tight upbeat musicality.

Snips
The Barbershop

London-based beatmaker Todd Worsnip—aka Snips—drops “The Barbershop”, his first vinyl release via Houseology, a banging hip-hop/house hybrid that weaves together his slick-as-butter production skills with a suitably tongue-in-cheek approach to sampling. Eight tracks of funky futuristic dance beats....view item »


Beastie Boys
Hello Nasty

Although only 17 years old, I’m sure we can all agree that Hello Nasty was due for a reissue.

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 K...view item »


Beastie Boys
To The 5 Boroughs

The album may not have the energetic poppin' synth beats that form 'Nasty'. It may not have the raw and distorted ways of 'Ill', and 'Check Your Head.' Beastie Boys have grown a lot from their debut, and in a way they have come back to represent NYC style with 'Boroughs'. Breakin' beats under the typical Beastie lyrics. And in some tracks they s...view item »


Madlib
Shades Of Blue

Shades of Blue is an incredible sampling of Blue Note, and holds many excellent tracks. In some places, the track doesn't do justice to the artist (and indeed some deserving artists like Quincy Jones and John Coltrane aren't even recognized, though they should be), but when limited to only one 80 minute album, Madlib does a brilliant job coverin...view item »


Tommy Guerrero
A Little Bit Of Somethin'

What a beautiful little release. The album art pretty much sums up the sound on the LP, so as you can imagine, the tracks are mellow and guitar-y.

Some J-rap larking about from the Akadama Bros here, a crew who boast Bo Ningen’s Taigen Kawabe in their numbers. ‘Sunshine’ is a wry and fun cut that boasts a squelchy, vaguely jukey instrumental. Contains remixes Clock Hazard’s Technoman and Shi...view item »

Mahatma X
A Mobtown Suite Vol 1

Prodigy
H.N.I.C.

Recommended to Mobb Deep fans or people who like what classics have came from QB in the past. Just about all the cuts are mostly uptown grimy normal Queensbrigde cuts.

Time is crashing on today, certainly not enough of to fully dissect the long awaited debut from this Edinburgh based hip hop troup. But I will try.
