XXXTentacion
17

While you pour one out for the recently departed XXXtentacion, it would be good to listen along to his debut album, now fully available again. 17, recorded and released at a remarkable young age, is here pressed up in CD and vinyl editions (for the very first time: this used to be digital only material) by Bad Vibes Forever / Empire.

Don Leisure
Shaboo vs. Halal Cool J

Darkhouse Family’s Don Leisure indulges a couple of his alter-egos on this new 7” for First Word (Children Of Zeus, Bastien Keb). Both Shaboo and the wonderfully-named Halal Cool J get a run-out here. You may recognise the former from Leisure’s 2017 LP Shaboo, and anyone who enjoyed that Donuts-esque beat buffet will dig these two joints. Halal Cool J takes the same brand of head-snap hip-hop and gives it a Middle Eastern twist. Both ‘Kazakh Honey’ and ‘Kaymak’ whet the appetite for HCJ’s upcoming LP.

Homeboy Sandman & Edan
Humble Pi

Humble Pi sees alternative rapper and Berklee College of Music dropout, Edan and New York rapper, Homeboy Sandman team up for the first time. The much-anticipated collaboration will please fans of MF Doom, Madvillian, Mike Eagle, Guilty Simpson and Blu & Exile. In short, you know this is going to be good. LP on Stones Throw.

Lil Baby & Gunna
Drip Harder

Here it is, the hyped collaboration between Lil Baby and Gunna - young men who, judging from a recent music video, both take great delight in the female form. Their musical reputation precedes them anyhow - Lil Baby’s stream count, for example, is nothing to sniff at. Drake, Young Thug, NAV and Lil Durk guest.

Lil Baby
Street Gossip

Lil Baby’s ‘commercial mixtape’ (that’s an album, then) Street Gossip gets a physical release. The one born Dominique Jones is the latest in Atlanta’s long and distinguished line of spit-gurgling autotuners, but his clear love of Young Thug means he’s willing to push his voice a bit more than your average trapper. Thug even shows up on ‘Section 8’, a track that feels like something of a baton-passing moment. Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and Lil Baby’s mate Gunna are among Street Gossip’s other features.

The Prodigy
The Fat of the Land

CHAMPAGNE LAGER LAG … oh sorry, wrong one. The Prodigy’s proto-EDM behemoth The Fat Of The Land really needs no introduction at this point. The band are best known for collaborating with Sleaford Mods of course, and everyone loved that Gene Simmons cover of ‘Firestarter’. Change my pitch up.

Czarface

This week on CZARFACE! After facing off with the nefarious METAL FACE (MF Doom) our hero has to face his greatest challenge yet, the unstoppable GHOSTFACE (Killah). Fortunately for him, he's not alone. 7L, Jeremy Page, Inspectah Deck and Esoteric all offer a helping hand to give CZARFACE a fighting chance.  Will CZARFACE previal?

August Greene
August Greene

Augustus Greene is the intriguing supergroup consisting of Common, Robert Glasper and Karriem Riggins. The trio produce a sound that is as much hip hop as it is jazz. Common confidently cruising over an elegant backing of Glasper's keys and Riggins' drums. Some supergroups make me wonder why this is happening to me. Augustus Green make wonder how it took so long. 

Yung Lean
Warlord

Warlord is the second album by Swedish rapper Yung Lean. His clean production matches the ice-white vinyl it’s pressed on. It was originally released in 2016, three years later a vinyl reissue is deemed necessary - but it looks nice, so why not give it a go? White vinyl LP in matt board sleeve on Year0001.

Wilma Vritra
Burd

Persistently inventive hip-hop release from Wilma Vrita, the collaboration London producer Wilma Archer and LA rapper Pyramid Vrita. ‘Burd’ has this slurred hybrid sound that appears open to any source it comes across. It’s a world weary record, on single ‘Targets & Digits’ Pyramid Vrita reflects the toxic climate with an acute gaze, Wilma Archer providing a necessarily exhausted backdrop.
  • Genre(s):

Grup Ses and Ethnique Punch
Deli Divan

Interesting stuff here from Grup Ses, with an album of two halves The intoxicating beat tracks that Grup Ses puts together, using distant Turkish samples and flavoured grooves, are powerful both on their own and supporting vocals, and that’s what we get on Deli Divan: the same tracks twice, once with verses by Ethnique Punch and once without. Fabulous beat atmospheres on Souk Records.

Lone
Lemurian

A modern classic from Lone, Lemurian gets the re-issue treatment in fully remastered style. Available on vinyl for the first time it features new artwork and a spot gloss cover. Contemporary balearic vibes just in time for summer. Out on CD, vinyl LP and limited edition pink vinyl LP from Dealmaker Records and Magic Wire.

DJ Krush
Jaku

'Jaku' was originally released in 2004 and became something of a legendary record in the field of instrumental hip hop. The man behind it all, DJ Krush, worked in hip hop for years and has worked a slew of music related jobs; the result is a musician who can ruthlessly collage sounds together. Krush is in good company, here, with vocal contributions from rappers such as Mr. Lif and the tongue-twister himself, Aesop Rock. 'Jaku' sees reissue from Music On Vinyl.

UNKLE
The Road: Part II

UNKLE releases are always, if nothing else, interesting. After seven years of silence, label boss James Lavelle finally returned with last year’s massive comeback effort Part I. It was diverse, but he promises even more variation on 2019’s The Road: Part II. We’re expecting a somber soundtrack to a post-apocalyptic road trip, but who really knows what the man from UNKLE will bring?

Wu-Tang
Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture Vol. 1

2005’s Wu-Tang Meets The Indie Culture was one of those records that came out in the wake of Danger Mouse’s Jay-Z/Beatles blend The Grey Album. The brainchild of Dreddy Krueger, the ‘indie’ of this LP’s title refers more to mid-2000’s underground rap scene than, say, Echo & The Bunnymen. We’re talking MF DOOM, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and Aesop Rock. Mind you, Jim Jarmusch does feature on this thing as well. Wu-Tang members like RZA and GZA keep the group’s end of the bargain.

MED featuring Guilty Simpson
Child Of The Jungle

Exciting collaboration and reunion between two hip-hop heavyweights. Guilty Simpson (who's worked with J Dilla) and MED (who's worked with Madlib) come together for Child Of The Jungle on BangYaHead. Excellent flows, smart lyrics and top beats from the likes of Black Milk, MNDSGN, and Apollo Brown. Also features Georgia Anne Muldrow.

The Lasso
The Sound Of Lasso

Hello Lasso my old friend, we’ve come to jam with you again. Andy Catlin’s fourth LP under this name is entitled The Sound Of Lasso, and it seems fitting that Catlin has chosen to identify this collection as the closest he’s gotten to a core ‘Lasso’ aesthetic. This is a record of aquatic, woozy and often very beautiful beat experiments that take in ambient music, MPC funk, hip-hop and bedroom pop. Think Arthur Russell, Huerco S. and Karriem Riggins all getting together and having a lovely old time.

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 textures (‘Melhor Que Tem’), brass duets, bizarre, restless future blues led by LaMar Gay’s handsome voice (‘Muhal’, ‘Swim Swim’), rap and all sorts.

Lil Yachty
Nuthin' 2 Prove

He’s right, you know. At this point Lil Yachty really does have Nuthin’ 2 Prove. Despite still being just 21 years old the MC already has a classic album under his belt (2016’s Lil Boat) as well as a slew of massive singles and legions of followers. His third LP, full of the kind of bouncy beats and cheeky bars on which Yachty made his name, will only continue to grow his legend. Features Cardi B, Offset, Lil Baby and a bunch of others famous rappers.

N.E.R.D
Seeing Sounds

Seeing Sounds was the third album by Pharrell Williams-led hip-hop-pop-rock-production duo N.E.R.D. This ain’t no ordinary vinyl version either - you get two bonus tracks! One of those tracks, a remix of Everyone Nose, features Kanye West, Pusha T and Lupe Fiasco. That’s a lot of ego for one track. 180g 2LP vinyl reissue on Universal.

Future
Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD

Future continues to play the dark prince on his seventh studio LP. The Hndrxx persona has always taken Future’s air of narcotic-fugged honesty that little bit further - think of Hndrxx as Future’s Thin White Duke - and Future Hndrxx Presents: The WIZRD is another set of cold-blooded trap tales from the superstar MC. Young Thug, Gunna and Travis Scott guest.

Asian Dub Foundation
Rafi's Revenge

When I saw the name Asian Dub Foundation I thought, there’s a blast from the past. As it turns out they’re still going and successfully so. It seems I’ve just lost track. From having released 8 albums to turning down MBEs, they’ve never gone away. Their second album, Rafi’s Revenge is a quite literal blast from the past. An high-energy slab of punk-infused dub, rap and electronica, it was originally released in 1998 and shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize. White vinyl 2LP and CD on London.

Yung Lean
Unknown Death 2002

Yung Lean is a rapper from Sweden. Unknown Death 2002 was his debut release. It originally came out in 2013 when Yung Lean was a teeny 16 year old with a big attitude. Regardless of his age, it announced him to the world and brought focus on to Swedish hip-hop. Natural coloured vinyl LP on Year0001.

Madvillain
Four Tet Mixes

Madvillain’s Madvillainy needs no introduction at this point, but what you may not know is that the LP was given a going over by Four Tet back in the mid-2000’s. The Four Tet Mixes EP sees a young(ish) Kieran Hebden bolting new beats onto MF DOOM’s bars. DOOM even helps with the production on a new version of ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’. Side B contains all the instrumentals.

The Man With The Iron Fists

As one might expect from a film co-written and directed by RZA, The Man With The Iron Fists comes with a pretty mighty soundtrack. RZA produces many of the beats here - the rest are handled by, among others, Isaac Hayes and BADBADNOTGOOD - and the whole thing generally oozes that special brand of class that one only gets from Wu-Tang joints. The list of vocalists on this thing is frankly ridiculous - Kanye West, Ghostface Killah, Danny Brown, Pharaohe Monch, Pusha T, Freddie Gibbs...

Straight Outta Compton

Reissue Heavyweight 180 gram LP with download card on UMC. This is a reissue of the 20th anniversary edition, and if I need to tell you any more about this then get bloody clicking. This is vital hip hop. Type it into youtube, and start your life already. With the biography film coming up later this year, you better get your homework done, otherwise you ain’t cool.

YG
My Krazy Life

YG’s debut LP My Krazy Life was one of the surprise hits of 2014. Despite making a decent name for himself on the mixtape circuit and managing to rope in the likes of Drake and Kendrick Lamar for guest features, no-one could have expected to be this LP to be as massive as it was. However, the success of singles like ‘Left, Right’, ‘Who Do You Love?’ and all-time classic ‘My Nigga’ sent My Krazy Life and YG stratospheric. This reissue allows you to relive the DJ Mustard-powered record in full and also gives us bonus jam ‘459’.

People Under The Stairs
Sincerely, The P

After 21 years making some fine DIY hip-hop, L.A. duo People Under The Stairs deliver their twelfth and final album, Sincerely, The P. Despite the old skool sounds and lack of bling associated with mainstream hip-hop, Thes One and Double K, remain adamant that they are not an underground group, I am tempted to suggest otherwise. On Piecelock 70.

Blu & Oh No
A Long Red Hot Los Angeles Summer Night

If you can’t actually visit LA, your next best option (or maybe just your best option anyway) would be to get Blu & Oh No’s album A Long Red Hot Los Angeles Summer Night. Blu has a rich way with words for expressing the magic of the city, and producer Oh No (brother of Madlib) has the perfect feel for what the album is going for. A lush LA hip-hop epic, on Nature Sounds.
  • Genre(s):

Bowery Electric
Lushlife

Bowery Electric’s third and final LP gets reissued via Beggar’s Banquet. Lushlife was originally unleashed in 2000, and boy does it sound it. This one’s got that real Moby/Mr. Scruff/Saint Etienne vibe to it, all mushy old film score samples and crackling breaks. It’s a pleasingly atmospheric listen and worthy of the re-release.
  • Genre(s):

Elaquent
Blessing In Disguise

Mello Music Group tend to deliver when it comes to hip-hop LPs that marry underground steez with old-school nous. Elaquent’s Blessing In Disguise keeps up the good work from MMG. This collection of low-end-theory beats throws together the whacked-out vibe of early Brainfeeder, Statik Selektah’s classy boom-bap and the jazz-loopery of Karriem Riggins. Nice.

Gangster Music Vol. 1

Illustrator Gangster Noodles collected over 25 tracks by small and big niche rappers in a Peanut Butter Wolf-like frenzy. The likes of Madlib, Jeremiah Jae, Jonwayne, and Kaytranada joined forces to create a collage of their corner of hip-hop with as of yet unreleased tracks. Disclaimer: Gangster Music Volume 1 is not to be confused with Cardi B’s Gangster Bitch Music Volumes 1 and 2.

Smoke DZA x Pete Rock
Don't Smoke Rock

Pete Rock still has a special place in our heart where T.R.O.Y. is playing on repeat. Back in 2016 he teamed up with “don’t call him a weed-rapper” Smoke Dza to create Don’t Smoke Rock, a throwback to Golden Age beats and verses. Smoke's story-telling skills combine very nicely with Rock's jazzy beats. The album is a great window to another era and is itself being reissued on vinyl.

Sole
Destituent

Another round of rhyme-spittin’ polemics from Anticon co-founder Sole. Focused on the lyrical theme of anarchism, this one for Fake Four Inc is a bit unusual as it draws in a gritty, self-produced No Wave environment for the MC’s disgruntled lines. Recorded half in central Denver, half in the Maine hinterlands.

Run The Jewels
Stay Gold Smiff & Cash Remix Collection

The relentless cash cow that is Run the Jewels unleashes yet more merch, taking advantage of your kind-hearted but collectable nature with Stay Gold Smiff & Cash Remix Collection. Two tunes ("Kill Your Masters" and "Stay Gold") with instrumental versions and a remix for the latter. Much like a student loan, you'll be paying off El-p and Mike forever.

Apollo Brown
Grandeur

Grandeur is an appropriately named record: Apollo Brown’s latest stretches over two LPs and brings in a stack of guests, including (but not limited to) Freddie Gibbs, Masta Ace and Vinnie Paz. Plenty of strong boasts over firm beats: highlights include Apollo dissing drugs as “Some Charles Bukowski shit”. Olive vinyl on Mello Music Group.

Rage Against The Machine

‘Rage Against the Machine’ is the eponymously titled debut studio album by American rap metal band Rage Against the Machine. The album was originally released on November 3, 1992. It’s contains the tracks ‘Killing In The Name Of’, ‘Bombtrack’, ‘Bullet In The Head’ and ‘Take The Power Back’. It’s THAT Rage Against The Machine album.

Nas
Illmatic XX

Originally released in 1994 Illmatic is a masterpiece that eloquently harmonises positive self-determinism with a stark reality, defining a generation of hip-hop that has inspired and informed up and coming artists and performers for decades. ‘Illmatic XX’ is a special twentieth-anniversary edition featuring all kinds of extras, promos and remixes.

Al Lover
Cave Ritual

Producer Al Lover continues to extend the inexplicable fondness musicians have for diamond shapes on their album covers with Cave Ritual, which I believe also has some music: a fascinating mix of fiery psych riffs, gooey synth and real producer shit makes this one up, the beats as firm and thrilling as ever. If Michael Bay ever makes a film on a handheld camera, he knows who to call.

Back To Mine – Nightmares On Wax

Popular album series Back To Mine returns for its 20th anniversary year curated by Nightmares On Wax, AKA George Evelyn from Pudsey, Leeds. The compilation, mixed by Evelyn, features a new Nightmares On Wax track and an exclusive Nightmares On Wax remix of a Fat Freddy’s Drop tune. 2LP and CD on Back To Mine.

Swindle
No More Normal

Swindle comes from grime and dubstep background and builds on these foundations by incorporating UK jazz and hip-hop. No More Normal sees him working MCs such as Kojey Radical, Ghetts, D Double E and P Money, vocalists Etta Bond, Eva Lazarus, Kiko Bun and Daley and musicians Dubya Garcia, Yussef Dayes and Riot Jazz. Hiring such a cast of characters came from his need for everyone to be on his album. LP and CD on Brownswood.

Cannibal Ox
The Cold Vein (Deluxe Edition)

Cannibal Ox were a hip-hop collective made up from Vast Aire, Vordul Mega and producer El-P. Justifiably highly acclaimed at the time of its original release in 2001 by the likes of Pitchfork. The music website correctly predicted that The Cold Vein would appear on many end of year lists. This is hip-hop from the dark side and it’s essential!

Massive Attack V Mad Professor
No Protection

The Mad Professor does what he does best on the Bristolian trip-hop progenitors second album Protection. No Protection takes Massive Attacks’ claustrophobic paranoia and opens it up, cranks the bass and amplifies the influence of soundsystem culture, for a complete dub remix. 180 gram vinyl reissue on Universal.

The Hurricane (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture)

These days, one can release pretty much any film soundtrack on vinyl and folks are into it. Here we have 1999 Denzel Washington film The Hurricane, a biopic of boxer and wrongly-imprisoned prisoner Rubin Carter, whose soundtrack features lots of soul (Ray Charles, Etta James and hip-hop, notably including a Bob Dylan cover. Out on Music On Vinyl.

DJ Shadow
Live In Manchester: The Mountain Has Fallen Tour

Disc Jockey Shadow still has quite the reputation despite not producing much of note since his second album and live he's still a blast as he veers between classics to obscurity like the crate digger he is. So it turns out he played in our very own rain sodden Manchester where someone taped his set and committed it to vinyl. There's also a CD/DVD set where you can watch him at work.

Kev Brown
Brown Album: Black Album Remixes

Before Kev Brown broke out with his 2005 LP I Do What I Do he was just a young beat-maker from Maryland. At some point after Jay-Z dropped his then-final LP The Black Album Brown decided to do what countless others were also attempting and put Hov’s bars to a new set of beats. The results were impressive enough to get Brown’s name around - Busta Rhymes hit Brown up after hearing this record. Fast forward to the present day and The Brown Album has got a limited re-press on Brown’s own KB Records.

Why?
Live at Third Man Records

Why? are a hip-hop inspired indie band fronted by Yoni Wolf. Following the release of their most recent album, last year's Moh Lhean, Why? played at Third Man Records - the Chocolate Factory to Jack White's Willy Wonka. Live at Third Man Records is a raucous reminder of the night.

Jonti
Tokorats

An album as dazzling with guest appearances and stylistic diversions as it’s press release is with super-cool name dropping and fashionable locales, Jonti takes us through a sonic journey that sees us witness various conversations with Jonti’s own ‘Tokorat’, a complex and multi-facated creature that lives in his mirror and reflects the dark side of his personality. If that hasn’t put you off, and you don’t mind that the creation of this record was a ‘spiritual journey’ you may have plenty to find in this record, the path to it’s completion including collaborations with Mark Ronson, BADBADNOTGOOD, Odd Future and Sampa The Great.

Bentley Rhythm Ace
Bentley Rhythm Ace (21st Anniversary Edition)

Bentley Rhythm Ace were a very popular flash-in-the-pan and were highly rated by the likes of the NME. They released two albums, the first in 1997 and the second in 2000. They were formed by ex-Pop Will Eat Itself bassist Richard March and DJ Michael Stokes. Their eponymous debut was made using cut and paste sampling, analogue equipment and turntables. You can now re-live the hedonistic times of the late ‘90s with this 21st anniversary reissue with two bonus tracks, released through Do Yourself In. Limited to 500 copies.

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 sold 69000 copies and is now out on vinyl.

Skinshape
Filoxiny

Over the past few years Skinshape mastermind Will Dorey has established himself as a worthy new addition to the lineage of British oddball artists. His Skinshape project sees Dorey fusing influences from trip-hop, reggae, downtempo electronica, psychedelic pop and chamber pop to cerebrally beautiful effect. He keeps up the good work with his fourth Skinshape LP Filoxiny. Mr. Scruff is an obvious comparison.

The Roots
Undun

Undone by The Roots was their 10th album. It’s a concept album telling the story of the fictional Redford Stevens and his struggle through poverty and his tragic death, starting at the end and working backwards. It was Grammy nominated for Best Rap Album and praised by critics. You don’t need me to tell you that last bit though, do you? We all know The Roots are cool. Reissue LP on Def Jam.

Kev Brown
Fill In The Blank

Kev Brown has worked at a rate of knots in 2018. The dust has barely settled on his Homework LP and he’s already on to the next one. Fill In The Blank is another collection of beats, rhymes and other hip-hop ephemera. It feels like a moot point comparing beat tapes to Donuts these days, but the two records really are rather similar. Damu The Fudgemunk is all over this thing.

Farai
Rebirth

It’s unclear whether Farai is to be seen as a new solo project of vocalist Farai Bukowski-Bouquet or as a collaboration between herself and producer TONE. The press release says that Rebirth is a collaborative affair, but the ‘featuring TONE’ tag on single ‘Punk Champagne’ suggests that the group’s debut LP may have been driven by Farai. However, what’s for sure is that this sparky punk-rap record is a perfect fit for Big Dada. Micachu & The Shapes drummer Marc Fell thumps a few tubs here.

Kev Brown
Minneapolis

Prolific producer Kev Brown turns his attention to the sounds of Minneapolis on his latest LP. The Minnesota city is best-known as the home of Prince, and Brown certainly injects a nice wedge of The Artist Formerly Known As's raunchy funk into these post-Dilla instrumentals. We challenge you to not shake your hips to these party-starting joints. This one's a Black Friday edish.

Dog Days Of Tomorrow

East Coast rap’s long-standing fascination with the world of comics bears yet more fruit in Czarface’s lavish Dog Days Of Tomorrow. For their latest trick the union of Boston hard-heads 7L and Esoteric with Wu-Tang’s Inspectah Deck drop a 7” record and a comic book in which they team up with another famous mug in Ghostface Killah to fight some such evil. While Dog Days Of Tomorrow serves as a warm-up for a collaborative LP between the two parties this package is lavish enough to be copped on its own merit.

Jehst
Billy Green Is Dead

This is the first new album from criminally underrated British hip-hop artist Jehst in more than 6 years. He's obviously used the time wisely concocting this ambitious sprawl of an album which follows his fictional character Billy Green through a turbulent life which leaves him at breaking point and eventually (spoiler alert) dead.

Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz
Mona Lisa

So there’s this bit in Never Stop Never Stopping, the extremely underrated feature-length film from The Lonely Island, where Andy Samberg’s Justin Bieber-type character sings a song about the Mona Lisa. It’s so, so, so funny and has imprinted itself on the brain of this young blurb writer for the rest of time. As such, every time I see the words ‘Mona Lisa’ I can’t really pay attention to what’s going on for a while afterwards because I just start singing Samberg’s song in my head. Seriously, go watch it, it’s amazing. Basically I haven’t been able to concentrate long enough on Apollo Brown and Joell Ortiz’s collaborative LP Mona Lisa to properly appraise it. What I can tell you is that the tracks here are sort of rappity-ass rap music that will survive the nuclear holocaust. I can also confirm that it’s out on Mello Music Group.

Nas
Nasir

Hmmm….what can I say about New York rapper Nas that you don’t already know? After all, he’s sold 30 million records which means he is much more famous than many of the artists on our website,  and most people know all there is to know already. Well, how about this: He has a vinyl version of his 11th album, It’s called Nasir, which is his full first name, but I guess you know that last bit, huh? Kanye West has produced 7 of the tracks. We expect this to be big. LP on Mass Appeal/ Def Jam.

$uicideboy$
I Want To Die In New Orleans

It’s $uicideboy$, a ferocious rap duo from 7th Ward, New Orleans whose name refers to their agreement to end it all if they didn’t make it in the biz by age thirty. They’ve certainly put the hours in trying to make this happen, for though a debut album this may be, it is also their forty-third release overall. Dark and intense stuff, boy$.

Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn
Something About April II

Fresh from a grand mafia-superhero themed project with Ghostface Killah, ace producer Adrian Younge turns his attentions to a new solo record. Something About April was a significant record when it landed, and this sequel is no different, combining Younge’s rare instrumentation with hip-hop beats and soulful guest vocals (including Laetitia Sadier!). On Linear Labs.

Kanye West
808s & Heartbreak

As one of the most pioneering electro-rap albums of the century, 808s & Heartbreak is a golden left-turn from modern hip-hop king Kanye West. In swapping his customary classic hip-hop sounds for synthy electronica, this is one of West's esteemed highlights - which has gone on to shape a glut following genres.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad presents
The Midnight Hour Instrumentals

Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have previous. In the past they’ve teamed up to score the 2016 Marvel series Luke Cage, and you might also recognise a snippet of The Midnight Hour Instrumentals’ ‘Questions’ from Kendrick Lamar’s ‘untitled 06’. Snapped up for Lamar's beat when it was still in demo form, the full track appears here with vocals from CeeLo Green. The rest of this LP finds the pair paying tribute to the Harlem Renaissance with a series of smoky neo-soul/hip-hop takes. Guests include Bilal, Laetitia Sadier and Luther Vandross.

MC Paul Barman
(((echo chamber)))

MC Paul Barman has kept a relatively low profile since the release of 2009’s Thought Balloon Mushroom Cloud LP, offering only a mixtape and a handful of guest verses in the intervening years. A near-decade on and the wordsmith’s wordsmith drops (((echo chamber))). The LP’s lengthy track list allows for Barman to dazzle from every angle - his near-spoken, rhymes-within-rhymes style still impresses almost twenty years after he got his start. His standing in the community is represented in the album’s credits - MF Doom, Open Mike Eagle, DJ Yoda, Mark Ronson and ?uestlove are among those who’ve lent a hand, with the latter contributing six productions.

Shabazz Palaces
Shabazz Palaces

Shabazz Palaces, whose Lese Majesty has been a pretty big deal this year, have elected to reissue this early self-titled mini-album from 2009, on red vinyl no less! Features the earlier, more embryonic version of the experimental hip-hop duo’s sound, valuable both for Shabazz historians and straight-up interested listeners.

Tricky
Maxinquaye

Tricky’s Maxinquaye has retained its power and significance long after the term / scene that it first appeared in, trip-hop, has faded from favour. Working closely with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, Tricky lurks his way around some real classics. 180 gram vinyl reissue for the 20th anniversary, on Music On Vinyl.

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere. It's coming up on three decades now that the duo of Slug and Ant have been practicing their craft, but more importantly it's been two years since their last album. America's last two years have been troubled and in response the band have turned to their local community, to create something warm, familiar, and defiant.

DJ Krush
Cosmic Yard (Special Edition)

DJ Krush -- pioneering hip-hop DJ and producer -- is back! Famed for his abstract-leaning contributions to the legendary Mo'Wax roster during the trip-hop heyday of the 1990s, his latest album Cosmic Yard (Special Edition) arrives as a 12-track LP or CD on Gamma Proforma. The keys are woozy and informed by classic Sci-Fi movies, the beats as eerily abstract as you'd imagine. Extra compositional and trumpet duties performed by Toshinori Kondo.

Petite Noir
La Maison Noir / The Black House

Three years on from the debut LP by Petite Noir we get a new mini-album/EP/whatever you call something that’s six tracks long these days courtesy of the one born Yannick Ilunga. La Maison Noir / The Black House is another ambitious project from the Cape Town-based artist. The smorgasbord sound of tunes like ‘Blame Fire’ recalls Troumaca and Jamie Woon. Guests include Rha! Rha!, Saul Williams and - returning the favour after Noir popped up on Atrocity Exhibition - Danny Brown.

Swarvy
Anti-Anxiety

‘Calidelphia’ producer Swarvy comes through with a feast of beats for his new Anti-Anxiety LP. Swarvy’s nineteen entries here are moody little vignettes reminiscent of the screwed-up jazz-funk sound that characterised the early MF DOOM albums. A host of notable MCs - Jeremiah Jae, Zeroh and Swarvy’s old mate lojii to name but three - dice some fine bars. Out via Paxico.

Denmark Vessey
Sun Go Nova

From urban Detroit via the heart of New York City, Denmark Vessey jettisons his latest 7-track EP, Sun Go Nova on the gigantic Mello Music Group. Punchy, kaleidoscopic soul combines with raw beats and Vessey's loose flows on a record produced by Earl Sweatshirt and Knwledge. There's oodles of charm and humour here and it's catchy as hell, y'all. Really.

Kev Brown
Delve Into Classical Moog

“This is a journey into sound” I think that’s what Washington DC hip-hop artist and producer Kev Brown of the Low Budget Crew is trying to achieve with his latest experimental work, Delve Into Classical Moog. The Moog has been used in many genres since its invention in the mid-’60s and artists are still finding new ways to manipulate the electronic beast, as Kev Brown proves here. LP on Redefinition Records.

Poor Boy Rappers
The D.J. Rap

Old-school hip-hop single, back when rap was still straightforward. With a tight electro beat, The D.J. Rap is something of an early shout-out to the West-Coast G-funk, more than a decade prior. Poor Boy Rappers only released 2 singles in their day, each going for around a 1000 quid--until this reissue, of course.

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 really worked on these rhymes and the music is smoky exotic brilliance.

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 - for a new record as Knife Knights. 1 Time Mirage is much better from Butler. Blood’s electro-hop production focusses the George Clinton-esque musings that sounded so aimless on the Quazarz records.

Bomb The Bass
Into The Dragon

The current rave revivalism of acts like Etch, Dream Cycle and Special Request jacks just as much steez from records like Bomb The Bass’ Into The Dragon as they do from ‘Voodoo Ray’. This 1988 LP was a top-twenty hit on release, further evidence of the groundswell of support for the sub-genre of hip-house. Across these ten tracks, producer Tim Simenon fuses rave breaks with Bomb Squad-style beats and scratch science to fresh effect.

Poor Boy Rappers
Low Rider Rap

When your original 1982 pressing is going for a grand on Discogs, it may well be time to consider a repress. Thus, for a limited time only, Poor Boy Rapper is no longer only available to Rich Boy Record Collectors. The track itself is a nice, LCR-mixed gem of 1980s narrative rap, with that classic, funky b-boy/girl rhythm.

The Lytics
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 they do what they do with a nice balance of energy, charisma and eloquence. It must help that Mike D has taken them under his wing too.

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 our troubled times.

Rejoicer
Energy Dreams

After a few years releasing on his own Raw Tapes label, Israeli producer Rejoicer has struck beatsmith gold and signed for Stones Throw. However, Energy Dreams could just as easily have cropped up on Brainfeeder, such is the similarity to Daedelus and mid-period FlyLo. Funky, jazzy, hip-hoppy electronica of the sort that never goes out of fashion.

Nas
Nastradamus

Nas gave us more than we bargained for on his fourth LP Nastradamus. The record was originally going to be an odds-and-sods collection consisting of stuff that didn’t make the cut for previous album I Am…, but bootlegging problems meant that Nas went back into the studio and cut a few fresh dubs. Mobb Deep and Ginuwine guest, and beats are handled by a wealth of producers including DJ Premier and Timbaland. It sounds like Nas, so we don’t really need to describe it for you.

Apollo Brown & Ghostface Killah
The Brown Tape

Ghostface Killah, one of the most prominent members of the Wu-Tang Clan, has collaborated with producer Apollo Brown, on The Brown Tape. The album is the story of the Deluca family, and the restless presence hunting them down. It's delivered in Ghostface's trademark flow, while Apollo Brown provides a worthy backdrop of chopped, crackling soul.

Apollo Brown & Planet Asia
Anchovies

Powerful collab with former half of Cali Agents, Fresno’s Planet Asia, providing the rhymes over deep and scratchy soul selections from Detroit’s Apollo Brown. Willie the Kid, Guilty Simpson and Tri-State each make an appearance. Raw, minimal and basic with a lazy small hours feel and an intoxicating and utterly underground vibe. Green / black smoke coloured vinyl or CD.

Bonobo
Migration

Up there with the likes of Fourtet, Jon Hopkins and Tycho, Bonobo is a world-renowned electronic producer/DJ who creates a spectacular sonic landscape with an authentic blend of trip-hop, ambient, IDM and his own unique twist. Long-awaited by fans, Migration is the Brighton-born producer's sixth studio release. If 2016 single Kerala is anything to go by, then the album is everything you'd expect... formidably intelligent, finely crafted and infinitely pretty. Released as Vinyl Double LP and CD on the Ninja Tunes label.

Young Fathers
White Men Are Black Men Too

Boldly titled follow-up album to Young Fathers’ award-winning debut, White Men Are Black Men Too. This group are not afraid to stir things up with their lyrics, their politics and their productions, which continue to mix hip-hop structures with all sorts of not-so-expected sonics. Released by the Big Dada label.
