Alright heads, another Mega-Drop from yours muthafuckin truly. Just gonna do my usual shit, post up stuff I've been feeling as of late, and hopefully some of y'all dig it. So, onto the beats.
First up we got a free album from the Exponential crew out of Texas. Most are from San Antonio. I honestly NEVER thought I'd say that Texas was my state of choice as far as music goes. That's what is SO dope about this music shit, it completely eliminates boundaries. When I listen to this album, I don't think Texas, I just think that it's Really, really good music. As far as a State goes, I can't think of another in the nation that has dropped so much consistently good music in the past few years, in the Hip/Trip Hop/Electronic genre that is. Anyway, check it out, I have been listening to it a bunch.
Antipop Artists - "Texas" <-- Right Click, Save As
Next up a new single from Emancipator that I found over on his Space... Just your usual shit from him: laid back, layered, well thought out, Great fuckin music... I had a friend refer to it as "Elevator Music" so take that as you want, but I dig his shit and CAN'T WAIT until he drops another album. I see this kid doing some serious production in the next few years. Hope you like.
Emancipator - "Black Lake"
Here we have a little EP from Leaf and one of his boys, DJ Nemeses, together they form "Deztroy". This is a nice little album in the regular Leaf fashion, dope drums over some electric/glitchy samples. Some nice shit here if you like Leaf or anything in that sound-range. I guess this is the first EP in a 5 part series, so more to come on the Deztroy tip. Enjoy.
Deztroy - "Radio EP" <-- "Track 7" is Especially dope.
Next is 2 new tracks I discovered from Glen Porter. Not so much "New" but 2 remixes of a track called "Transient" from his debut LP. This dude is FUCKIN DOPE and I wish there was more from the man. He combines Western sounding Guitar ballads with Hip Hop/Drums SO well. I got high hopes for this dude in the future, keep your eyes & ears open for new Glen Porter.

Alright, Broken is the producer for the group N9nthCloud, out of Las Vegas. I seen these dudes touring with DJ Egadz not too long ago, and they were pretty dope. Broken did a solo MPC session that night that got me more stoked on their shit, and his production. So, I snagged one album at the show, and found the other on the net. Here they both are for YOU. I prefer 48 Hours more as an album, it's his first Instrumental effort but sounds better than Message In A Bottle, In My Opinion at least.. Anyway, let us know what you think about these discs. I'm curious to see what you think about this dude.
Broken - "48 Hours"
Broken - "Message In A Bottle" **Some Lyrics On This One**
Alright, last but definitely NOT least, is muthafuckin EGADZ! This dude is so unbelievably good I can't say enough about the guy. There are few artists that truly grasp you as you listen to their shit, and I would say that everybody has to at least have one or two artists that treat them the same way. That shit you listen to by yourself, that you PREFER to listen to by yourself, that shit that you just CAN'T PUT DOWN. I have had Egadz' albums on permanent loop since I got them, a day doesn't go by where I don't listen to somethin from the dude. His shit just hits home with me. I know that A LOT of you probably wont feel the same way, but I recommend to everybody that visits this site to check his stuff out. You can buy ALL of his albums on his myspace for 17.95!!! That is ABSURD, 4 albums of some REALLY GOOD music for the cost of your average retail disc. SUPPORT!! He recently was in a car accident and had some of his equipment ruined and can use as much help as possible right now, he's only 2 TRACKS away from releasing another new album.
Anyway, that's all I'm going to say about the guy. DEFINITELY on my Top 5, and he's not going anywhere anytime soon. Try and see him live if you can, he's going to start touring again soon. I saw 2 different shows on his last tour, with a max of 30-50 heads at each sow, and he DESTROYED things @ both shows. No loss of effort from the small crowds, his shit was HOT. So check out the following vid, watch until about 1:52, that is when things get SERIOUS. I made an .mp3 of that vid from 1:52 on and that is what this "Egadz Live" track is. I hope all of you listen to Egadz more, and I hope you appreciate it as much as I do, His shit is BANGING!
Egadz - Live
Alright heads, I hope that is enough to hold you over until the next Dose! Until then.... PEACE.
