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.

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. The EP-length collab pre-dates the duo's breakthrough album, the critically lauded smash 'Piñata'. Before the release, Gibbs was considered an under-rated rapper; that's far from the case now of course. Gibbs' ferocious verses tell of heartbreak, pain and anger over some swoonsome strings and rollicking beats courtesy that man Madlib.

Princess Nokia
A Girl Cried Red

Having swapped her PE kit for a Slipknot t-shirt, Princes Nokia is ready for an act of radical reclamation. A Girl Cried Red is as emo as emo gets, and despite it's place within a canon enabled by black musicians, is typically dominated by white ones. Available on limited red 12" on Rough Trade.

Grandmilly & Shozae
Adventureland

After two decent collaborative EPs, Raider Klan-affiliated MC Grandmilly and producer Shozae drop their debut full-length via Stones Throw. The tweak that makes Adventureland stand out is how the tunes often feel like they’re running slightly slower than they should be in a way that might make you check if your record player is malfunctioning. But no, cuts like ‘Graffiti’ and ‘Philip Lim’ are meant to be that syrupy. It gives the LP an evocative, hazy vibe. Grandmilly sometimes kicks into gear in a way that makes you think of a double-time A$AP Rocky.

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 Gulf War to New York City’s crack epidemic. Originally released in 1992, the album now gets a double-LP reissue on Universal.

Lil Yachty
Lil Boat 2

After the mess that was Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty returns to form with the sequel to his Lil Boat Mixtape. Lil Boat 2 manages to recapture the charm of Yachty’s breakout record, highlighting his strengths - the affable persona, cartoonish beats and sing-song flow - while also displaying a marked improvement in his rapping ability. Offset, Quavo and 2 Chainz are among the guests.

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' record. But 'Elephant Eyelash' is better. Deal with it.

Kev Brown
Homework

Kev Brown’s first solo LP since 2005 drops via Redefinition Records (Pete Rock, Damu The Fudgemunk). Despite thirteen years passing between this record and the last, Homework - which has nothing to do with the Daft Punk album of the same name - catches a similar sonic moment to I Do What I Do. Here we have more than two-dozen hip-hop vignettes in the Guilty Simpson/MF DOOM mould.

Shabazz Palaces
Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines

Quazarz vs. The Jealous Machines is a summer 2017 release from a hip-hop artist with a galactic sense of ambition and grandeur. Ishmael Butler, aka Shabazz Palaces, creates an otherworldly universe in this highly creative expedition through a mind realising the depths of his own imagination. Interstella rap at its most futuristic.
  • Genre(s):

Shabazz Palaces
Black Up

Not written in reference to Justin Trudeau's party antics but the 2011 debut from American rap duo Shabazz Palaces. The group features the vocals of Ishmael Butler formerly of Digable Planets alongside multi-instrumentalist Tendai "Baba" Maraire. Black Up was a lean and forward thinking hip-hop record which was notable for pushing boundaries forward rather than pander to the more nostalgic view of the genre that was more popular at the time. First ever hip-hop group on previously guitar-led label Sub Pop too.

Samiyam
Animals Have Feelings

The Stones Throw label is the perfect fit for Samiyam’s fourth album of soulful, loop heavy hip-hop. Animals Have Feelings is sumptuous and woozy, post-Dilla beat music with a host of incredible vocalists involved as well. Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Jeremiah Jae and Oliver the 2nd all jump on the mic to lend a hand.

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’.
  • Genre(s):
  • Hip-Hop / Beats / DJ Mix

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 instrumentals all dolled up with boom-bap drum tracks. Somewhere in Manhattan Dangermouse, MF Doom and RZA are clinking glasses.

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 Hill. There’s a lot of nasal shit-talking, a lot of bars about weed, and beats that don’t really care for none of that new stuff son thank you very much.

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. Curry marries the hyphy nu-skool styles of Rae Sremmurd, A$AP Ferg et al with an ability to a c t u a l l y s p i t b a r s that places him in the noble southern tradition of Outkast and Killer Mike. The beats are gnarled things that bear a clear Horrorcore influence, and Curry also makes sure everyone knows that he likes Marilyn Manson.

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 taken by hip-hop and infuse video-game nostalgia into their sample-heavy instrumental beat workouts. The sequel to Eternal Champ, Eternal Champ II is quite the record to anticipate. Summer's here, everyone. Coloured vinyl, limited edition LP on Ghost Ramp.

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 had his hand in producing it, from way back before people knew he was going to splice it all up.

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.

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. As lengthy as it is, this is a fine collection of finessed braggadocio. Features ‘Walk It Talk It’, ‘MotorSport’, ‘Stir Fry’ and plenty others. Guests include Drake, Gucci Mane and Cardi B.
  • Genre(s):

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. Influenced by a myriad sounds outside of hip-hop, from grime to "no wave", this is a diverse and multi-disciplined record of various philosophies and settings.
  • Genre(s):
  • Hip-Hop / Beats / DJ Mix

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 ‘Rock With You’ after a couple of Valium. Flip the record over and we get five short, sweet beats. GladWeMet is another feather in the cap for Knxwledge.
  • Genre(s):
  • Hip-Hop / Beats / DJ Mix

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. His fifth LP Scorpion comes out at just the right time to jack the momentum Kanye West has built up this past month. This thing is 25 tracks long (!) and has guest spots from Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z and - somehow - Michael Jackson.

Eric B. & Rakim
Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em

Originally dropped in 1990, the third LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets the reissue treatment. Though Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em might not have the commercial clout of something like Paid In Full, this album is the connoisseur's EB & R record. Tunes like ‘No Omega’ sees Rakim spitting some of his savviest bars over beats that encompass both the grittiness of the Bomb Squad and A Tribe Called Quest's sharp jazz-hop.

Adrian Younge & Ali Shaheed Muhammad presents
The Midnight Hour

Adrian Younge (Venice Dawn) has worked with Souls Of Mischief and Ghostface Killah teamed up with Ali Shaheed Muhammad to score the Luke Cage series whilst also working on their Luther Vandross inspired project. The Midnight Hour carries on where the king left off with a heady blend of soul, jazz and hip hop groove. Features guest appearances by the man himself Vandross, as well as Cee-Lo Green, Raphael Saadiq,  Eryn Allen Kane, and many more.

Mndsgn
Snax

Ringgo Ancheta is back as Mndsgn with Snax, marking a return to his mixtape roots -- on this inaugural release on his own Ringgo Records. Following on from a smorgasbord of treats on Stones Throw, The LA beatmaker has been searching anew and discovering tasty new bites and slices, splicing them together to produce this latest mouthwatering sandwich of soul, jazz and boogie. Delicious, cosmic, summery times ahead. BBQ optional but recommended.

Slum Village
The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition)

The billionth posthumous J Dilla release is also a celebration of his early group Slum Village. Their LP Fantastic, Volume 2 was actually released at the turn of the Millennium, but since recording was completed in 1998 this year marks a twentieth anniversary for the record. The Lost Scrolls 2 (Slum Village Edition) presents previously unreleased bootlegs, remixes, solo tracks and demos cut by Dee, Baatin and T3 during the Fantastic sessions. They are all, of course, the crispest of jams from the neo-soul/hip-hop nexus.
  • Genre(s):
  • Hip-Hop / Beats / DJ Mix

Eric B. & Rakim
Follow The Leader

The classic sophomore LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets a nice double-vinyl reissue. Follow The Leader may not be quite as well known as the duo’s all-conquering debut Paid In Full, but this 1988 follow-up still has plenty to offer. Indeed, there’s a school of thought that says Follow The Leader is the better record. The manner in which Rakim’s bars dance over Eric B.’s endlessly listenable beats remains a joy all these years later. Golden-age boom-bap doesn’t get much better than this.

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 Flying Lotus after all) are also audibly apparent. Double LP on Leaving Records.

Beastie Boys
Solid Gold Hits

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start with the Beastie Boys. They started out basically as children making near novelty rap before swinging by an unbelievable breadth of musical styles over their career. This 2005 era compilation just takes all the singles and best bits from 'Sabotage' to 'Fight For Your Right' to 'Shake Your Rump'. 
  • Genre(s):

Prefuse 73
Sacrifices

Last spotted writing an album called 'Lady Parts' as Fudge, it feels like time Scott Heron got back to doing what he's best at. After many years of output he still has great production chops and though we have absolutely zero information about this album we're sure it will be as much anticipated as all his previous work.

J Dilla
Ruff Draft (Dilla's Mix) The Instrumentals

The late J Dilla recently had his cult classic Ruff Draft EP reissued by Pay Jay as a new edition that foregrounded the mixes he preferred, but never released. Now those new versions are available sans vox on this instrumental record. Of course, they are impeccable beats - this is Jay Dee we’re talking about after all.
  • Genre(s):
  • Hip-Hop / Beats / DJ Mix

Daedelus
Of Snowdonia & Something Bells

While Daedelus might now have built a whole scene in his image, back in the early 2000s he was still working towards that whole mad-genius post-bap thing. 2003’s Of Snowdonia LP, and the shorter Something Bells that was released the following year, both represent significant steps in his artistic progression. They show him making strides in the direction of his trademark sound, yet also incorporating influences from folk and r ‘n’ b in a manner reminiscent of what Four Tet was doing at the same time. This re-pressing from Magical Properties brings the two records together in one double-LP edition.

Haleek Maul
In Permanence

We do love coloured vinyl, so thanks goes to Lex records for this limited-edition red release from 21-year old Bajan-Brooklynite Haleek Maul. 'In Permanence' is his debut EP, and you can expect to hear such varying influences as Aphex Twin, Crystal Castles, underground legend Kenneth Anger and Kanye West.

Jitwam
िज़तम िसहँ

Jitwam’s 'िज़तम िसहँ' (self-titled) LP is as multi-faceted as the composer himself. Born in India, based in Brooklyn and having lived in New Zealand, South Africa and plenty of places in between, the music here funnels Jitwam’s storied life into an LP that recalls the oddball pop sounds of Mo Kolours and Connan Mockasin.

Madlib / Various
Untinted: Sources For Madlib's Shades Of Blue

Everyone dug Madlib’s classic rummage through the legendary Blue Note jazz archives from 2003, the smoky-cool Shades Of Blue, in which our hero made sweet funky hip-hop groove instrumentals out of the jazz samples. Now you can cut straight to the source of the samples, without doing any crate-digging of your own. Neat. Double LP reissue.

Late Night Tales presents AFTER DARK Nocturne

Available on double vinyl LP or on CD on Late Night Tales. The LP comes as fully unmixed separate tracks with download code to Bill Brewster’s mix and tracks, and the CD IS the mix with download code to digital versions of individual tracks. Bass pounding, late night session, disco cuts from the likes of Lindtrøm, Coalkitchen and Rudy Norman. Bill Brester is best known as the author of Last night a DJ saved my life and How to DJ(Properly).

Chris Orrick
Portraits

Michigan native Chris Orrick, formerly known as Red Pill, is known for his searing documentation of decay, family troubles, industrialisation and addiction. His latest album, 'Portraits', is a savage criticism of Trump's America, Orrick's melancholic piano-led balladry lending a particular kind of poignancy.

The Criminal Minds
Guilty As Charged

The Criminal Minds were a Buckinghamshire hip-hop crew active in the early 90’s who produced music in bedrooms and slipped it out in small-run releases. Guilty As Charged is their 1990 debut release, and it is extremely hard to find. This very welcome reissue has been sourced from old vinyl copies and carefully mastered to sound as good as possible: crucially, the bite of the music has been maintained.

Initially released in the later half of 2017 through Win big, Richmond (North Yorkshire) based alternative Hip-hop band Ceiling Demons have teamed up with Butterfly Effect to bring it to glorious splattered vinyl. Led by Psy Ceiling and Dan Demon they tackle and aim to raise awareness of depression, anxiety and suicide through their music, the result is emotionally raw and boundless.

Kiefer
Happysad

Proper chill and proper smooth from Kiefer. The debut record, Happysad, is a smart and jazzy collection of tracks written and performed by the LA-based musician. Available on both vinyl LP and CD and is released on Stones Throw. What isn't to love about a record that has a dog sitting next to a miniature red piano as its album art? 

Dangerdoom
The Mouse and The Mask: Official Metalface Edition

Who could forget this 2005 A-list team-up between MF Doom and Danger Mouse? The Mouse and The Mask, which also features guest appearances from characters both real (Ghostface Killah, Cee Lo Green) and fictional (Aqua Teen Hunger Force) is a sweet and funky classic, and it is now getting a hardcore reissue. The Official Metalface Edition features an EP and some unreleased tracks in addition to the original album.

The extremely talented Karriem Riggins drops a very Stones Throw record on … Stones Throw. As a jazz drummer Riggins has played with the likes of Oscar Peterson and Roy Hargrove, but Together finds him showing off his skills on the MPC. The beats here are wobbly, melodious things in the vein of Riggins’ friend and mentor J Dilla.

BOOMBOX 3: Early Independent Hip Hop, Electro And Disco Rap 1979-83

And so Soul Jazz move swiftly on, to the third volume in their ongoing BOOMBOX series; they have unearthed even more early indie hip-hop and electro gems here. Boombox 3 features a string of amazing, near-unknown New York rap artists, classic breaks, proto-electro and more. Reaching the early 1980s and now the first rap tunes outside New York emerge: Los Angeles, Houston and Milwaukee are all represented.

Sami Baha
Free For All

As he's partly responsible for one of the greatest tracks of all time (Total Freedom's Bitch Better Have My Money edit), I've always had a soft spot for Sami Baha. His new album is a compelling document of the state of contemporary "club" music, and features guest spots from UK Drill superstar Dimzy, as well as Yung Lean and Egyptian MCs Dawsha and Abanob.

Prefuse 73
Forsyth Gardens

Electronic pioneer Prefuse 73 is back in a big, bold and brash way with Forsyth Gardens. Presumably not an ode to Bruce and his topiary, this multi-faceted album sounds ultra-modern in its kaleidoscopic scope. Young fans of Flying Lotus would be wise to take note of one of the masters. Out on vinyl LP from Temporary Residence.

NxWorries
Yes Lawd!

Collaborative project of California based duo Anderson Paak and Knxwledge. Having individually worked with Kaytranada, Dr Dre, Kendrick Lamar, and Joey Bada$$ they a have found a rightful home at Stones Throw. NxWorries is soulful and filled with slow, smooth R&B groove, solid layered vocals, and crackling beats from crate digging finds.

lojii
lofeye

Youngbloods Records (Sontag Shogun, Sweatson Klank) team up with Philly MC lojii for the rapper’s debut solo LP. lofeye is a murky, hazy alt-rap record that really catches a vibe. Atop beats pitched somewhere between the sparse spookiness of recent Metro Boomin and the Garageband-Pharrell flex of early OFWGKTA, lojii eloquently shadowboxes in a manner reminiscent of Earl Sweatshirt.
  • Genre(s):

Sweatson Klank
Fine Lines

We all wish we could be called Sweatson Klank, but unfortunately, there can be only one. This Sweatson Klank is a Los Angeles producer who melds hip-hop, future R&B and House whilst being nifty enough to balance the necessary muscular punch with a soulful emotional tug. Fine Lines doesn’t fit into any particular pigeonhole, but will fit nicely on your turntable. LP on Friends of Friends.

More high-quality beat action from the archives of the beloved J Dilla, this time with totally new-to-the-public material! Dillatronic’s 41 tracks are particularly heavy on electronic synth lines, supported by breaks that have that perennially funky Dilla quality.

Before Piñata there was Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away. In 2011 Freddie Gibbs got together with Statik Selektah and they live-streamed themselves recording an entire album in a day. Gibbs' iconic flow on top of Static's boom bap production makes for a combination more than deserving of the Omerta 'first time on vinyl' treatment.

Paul White
Rejuvenate

Previously known as the beatsmith who was, among other things, the architect of Danny Brown’s avant-rap masterpiece Atrocity Exhibition, Paul White has foregone sampling for his latest LP. In Rejuvenate, he has composed, performed and produced eleven tracks of limber, playful pop. There’s more than a little of Dirty Projectors, Solange and tUnE-yArDs in here. Rejuvenate by name, rejuvenate by nature.

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 bin.

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. A lot of the songs here don’t appear prominently in the movie, but there’s been enough hype around this accompanying LP in its own right. You know the score at this point - Kendrick Lamar plays auteur, bringing together a load of A-listers for this head-scratching, trunk-rattling selection. If nothing else, you need this for Future’s absolutely, masterfully, hilariously ridiculous verse on ‘King’s Dead’.

Nas
I Am...

You’re right, Nas. You are. You’ll never be what you were - Illmatic will be your gift and your curse - but you definitely still are. I Am… will be the record in which you find yourself caught between your roots and your reality. It will see you try to rekindle past flames - a song called ‘N.Y. State Of Mind Pt. II’, sampling yourself (twice) on ‘Nas Is Like’ - as well as keep the commercial clout of 1996’s It Was Written. It will feature beats by DJ Premier and Timbaland, and guest spots from DMX and Aaliyah. It will be a double-album in order to accommodate all of this heavy-lifting. It will come out in 1999, but will be repressed in 2018. And most excitingly of all, it will be stocked by Norman 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. 'Yawn Zen' is coming out on the revered Stones Throw Records, so this guy is serious business. He can be considered quite the hip-hop naturalist, having spent most of his life in forests and woodlands and having to break free of a cult his parents were members of. 'Yawn Zen' offers up a fresh perspective on instrumental hip hop and the places it comes from.

No Question

Having helmed records for lyricists including Guilty Simpson and Ghostface Killah in recent years, Apollo Brown teams up with West Coast MC Locksmith for his latest collaborative LP. The pair bounce off each other well across the eight tracks of No Question.

ICYTWAT
Milk

You can't get milk white MP3s.

Hell On Earth

Solidifying the sound of hardcore, east coast hip hop, Mobb Deep’s ‘Hell on Earth’ is back on vinyl where it belongs. Get on Down Records have repressed this archetypal N.Y. street rap record.

Dabrye
Three / Three

It has taken Todd Mullinix a little longer than expected to complete the trio of Dabrye albums begun with 2001’s One/Three, but he’s got there in the end. To make up for the wait the Ann Arbor producer serves up near-twenty tracks of envelope-pushing hip-hop. His first two LPs influenced the likes of Flying Lotus, Harry Fraud and Paul White, and the video-game clatter of Three/Three bangers ‘The Appetite’ and ‘Emancipation’ shows Mullinix can still kick it. The guest features read like a who’s-who of Real Rap Guys - Ghostface, Danny Brown, Guilty Simpson, you get the idea.

Dabrye
One / Three

Ghostly International serve up a remastered version of Dabrye’s seminal 2001 One/Three to drop concurrently with the producer’s new LP Three/Three. Often cited as one of the most important beat-tapes of the early millennium, One/Three offers so much more than mere Dilla tributes. Todd Mullinix’s background in IDM and jungle means he pays great attention to detail on the ten tracks here, while the sounds of the producer’s native Michigan get a bit of grit in One/Three’s eye.
