Lupe Fiasco
Lupe Fiasco's The Cool

Really popular rap man Lupe Fiasco gets his most popular album 'The Cool' re-issued on special vinyl of clear colour. He's a master of the sort of laid back grooves and insouciant vocal styles that recall the golden days of Warren G and enjoys guest spots from Unkle, Snoop Dog and (weirdly) former Blue Peter presenter Sarah Greene.

Wu-Tang Clan
Wu-Tang Forever

The Wu-Tang followed up hip-hop's greatest and most notorious classic, 'Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)', with 1997's 'Wu-Tang Forever', a record that expanded the Clan's roster (bringing in new member Cappadonna) while continuing to stay on point with their brand of raw, forceful rap. RZA gives the production an upgrade this time around, is all.

Tuxedo
Tuxedo II

The second record by Tuxedo (Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One) is, remarkably, yet more funky than their first! Tuxedo II seems to be making a pitch for Tuxedo as the heirs of George Clinton and Nile Rodgers, being packed with grin-inducing grooves and big pop hooks. Proper party music, released by Stones Throw.

J Dilla
Jay Dee aka King Dilla

It is frankly astonishing that previously unreleased J Dilla tracks are still being unearthed today, more than a decade after his death; and even more astonishing that they can still be of such extremely high quality. Jay Dee aka King Dilla is a set of eight very fine beat tracks from the Ne’Astra Music Group archives: enjoy. Vinyl release.

Dr. Octagon
Dr. Octagonecologyst

Almost 10 tracks on top of the album (5 unreleased) across 3 vinyls housed in an octagonal box with book, a load of pictures and interviews. The glove snaps.

Serengeti
Dennehy

David Cohn’s bizarre and comedic hip-hop and indie mashup moniker Serengeti’s breakthrough album from 2006, Dennehy is made available on vinyl for the first time, and it includes a bonus track called Amateur Surgeon and four further tracks that made up an unreleased EP called Beautyman. Think somewhere between Beck and Buck 65.

Addictive TV
Orchestra of Samples

Graham Daniels and Mark Vidler (Go Home Productions) are VJs and mash-up artists extraordinaires, probably most well known for their Blondie vs The Doors melding into Rapture Riders. Taking this idea to a huge scale they have been travelling for the last 5 years and sampled over 200 musicians from more than 25 countries, pooling all of these recordings and creating a unique album from it, quite rightfully titled Orchestra Of Samples.

Kendrick Lamar
DAMN.

The biggest of big deals in 2017: a new full-length album from Kendrick Lamar himself.

Bad Neighbor Instrumentals

Time Zone feat. Afrika Bambaataa & John Lydon

Adrian Younge Presents The Delfonics
The Delfonics Instrumentals

The Delfonics are a vintage soul group who experienced a late-career resurrection when producer Adrian Younge got involved. His hip-hop informed approach was a hell of a boost, and this previously unreleased collection of instrumentals shows off the sheer god-damn groove of this fine outfit. LP release on Younge’s Linear Labs label.

Brother Ali
All The Beauty In This Whole Life

Brother Ali is wrapped up in a swirling tunnel of his own emotions. All The Beauty In This Whole Life embodies a perfect illustration of that state - each lyric is developed to either "reflect beauty, or expose ugliness", in Ali's own words. This is evocative hip-hop in its most socially conscious and candid form.

DOOKOOM
NO!

The bane of Afrikaans rights activists in their native South Africa for daring to speak up about inequality and social justice, Dookoom’s debut album is noise-punk riot. Recalling Ex-Military-era Death Grips, Dalek and Dirty Paraffin (yes, and Die Antwoord), No! goes hard in its fight to be right. Not for the faint-hearted, but also very fun.
  • Genre(s):

Run-DMC
Run-DMC

Run-DMC’s self-titled debut album is a no-messing hip-hop classic.

Nosaj Thing
Fated

Available on 12” Vinyl or CD on Innovative Leisure. Nosaj Thing’s debut album Drift was heralded as a landmark record, and quite rightly so, pushing texture and melody into the foreground.

Banks & Steelz
Anything But Words

Here is the collaboration that no-one could have expected...or indeed asked for. Funny haired Interpol leader Paul Banks hooking up with Wu Tang's RZA. The result is the kind of rap rock we could only have dreamt of back in the '80s. Careful what you wish for though - they make strange bedfellows these two.   

A$AP Ferg
Always Strive and Prosper

A$AP FERG returns with his sophomore album, and 18 tracks of trap anthems for 2016.

The Slim Shady LP

Incredible Bongo Band
Bongo Rock

Bongo Rock is a reissue of the 1973 album by The Incredible Bongo Band.

Everyone from Beastie Boys to Jay-Z, Goldie to Aphex Twin have delved into this rich resource for drum samples and inspiration.

Drake & Future
What A Time To Be Alive

Instantly memorable as much as it was unexpected, the highly quotable collaboration between two hip-hop juggernauts makes its way to the vinyl format just over a year after its 2015 release. Toronto’s Drake flew out to Future’s Atlanta base and with just under a week together in the studio, the pair churned out a victory lap record executive-produced by their respective wingmen 40 and Metro Boomin. With Boomin on most of the instrumentals, it’s very clear Future’s on home turf though both rappers thrive across the LP’s over-the-top boasts and beats. Closing out the record, “Jersey” and “30 for 30 Freestyle” see both artists show off their signature sound as solo rounds.

Spectre (aka the production talent of Skiz Fernando) continues to investigate the possibilities of making beats away from the strictures of regular forms. The Last Shall Be The First drags throat-singing, movie samples, clinking and cluttering noises, and anything else it can find into its wild beat structures. Strange dark action.

Add a Ted Hughes award for her writing and a nod from the Poetry Society, and it all becomes pretty impressive. 'Let them Eat Chaos' is a long poem, written for performance.

Beat Street - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Volume 1

The 1984 movie Beat Street is all about New York’s burgeoning street hip-hop culture, which was really starting to sizzle at this point. Needless to say, the soundtrack is well stuffed with the same excellence as the film: Afrika Bambaataa, Treacherous Three, Grandmaster Melle Mel & The Furious Five and many more. Volume 1 of the soundtrack is reissued on vinyl by Music On Vinyl.

Swet Shop Boys
Cashmere

Three quality artists who have earned their stripes independently join forces as Swet Shop Boys. New York MC Himanshu Suri (ex Das Racist) and London’s Riz MC meet up with Redinho’s production.

Splendor & Misery

More diseased-sounding noise-electronics hip-hop from Clipping. Splendor & Misery is something of a concept album, telling an Afrofuturist space story with narrative touches as heavy as the harsh-blast soundscapes they flow over. Indeed, the album’s sounds are intended to be the sounds of the imagined space slave-ship the story takes place on. Out via Sub Pop.

Kool Keith
Feature Magnetic

Horrorcore/Weird-Hop pioneer Kool Keith has many guises (Dr. Octagon, Black Elvis) and brings a tonne of collaborators along for his latest journey into oddness.

Close Up

Crem'e’s debut on Alpha Pup is absolutely stunning in its soulful and personal nature whilst being so inviting.

Deep and rolling sub bass, ethereal and layered vocal snippets pitched meticulously, and saturated clattering percussion. Heart nodding ish

The Bongolian
Moog Maximus

How about a ride in a bongo-funk inspired time machine? Ever since Nasser Bouzida, known for his role in Big Boss Man, locked himself up with a bunch of synthesizers, his project The Bongolian has resulted in severely synthesized funky bongo tracks. And Moog Maximus continues dropping those b-boy-friendly funkbombs.

Pregnant
Made In China

Pregnant, the erstwhile collaborative project of Daniel Trudeau and Style Munson, have assembled an interesting blur of material for Made In China. It sometimes sounds like Animal Collective being processed relentlessly by a computer using a broken electro-pop setting, and no, that isn’t a bad thing. 50 copies on red cassette, out on Them There Records.

Roots Manuva
Switching Sides

Mr Dan (featuring Guilty Simpson)
Firewater

We apparently have Run The Jewels to thank for Mr Dan’s new musical angle, presented for the first time on this 7”. Seeing them play put Dan on a heavy, aggressive beat-making tip, and Firewater is a strong example of such. MC duties provided by Guilty Simpson, with an instrumental version on the flip.
