Dert - Talk Strange (A Beat Tape Inspired by Björk)

"The new beat tape from Los Angeles-based producer Dert. TALK STRANGE features 17 tracks sampling original tunes and remixes by the legendary Icelandic singer Bjork. Just like the Dert Floyd: Westside of the Moon project, TALK STRANGE takes artist-themed beat tapes to another level providing amazing instrumentals to practice your rhymes over or just sit back and enjoy.

Future 2009 releases from Dert include: the synth-driven CMYK EP this spring and DOWNTOWN HEADNOD SUITE, an all piano beat album featuring Blue Note recording artist Robert Glasper."

I am lovin every single track on here! My personal favorite is Track 11 - Dark Currents. Check it out and enjoy!!!!!!

Re-up to Dert's West Side Of The Moon! If you dont already have it check it out.

J-Live - Reveal The Secret (2007)

Almost exactly one year ago, after a two year hiatus, J-Live followed his critically acclaimed full length “The Hear After” with a sneak attack in the form of the 6 song EP “Reveal The Secret”, just before his very latest "Then What Happened?" was to drop.

“I want this to feel like it came outa nowhere. I want the people that have it to feel special, you know. Let them spread the word that I’m back. Pass it on before the album drops. You know… let the cat out the bag, reveal the secret.”

Its no secret that J has worked with his fair share of elite producers in the past. And although this fall’s mini project is just a precursor, it is no different. Reveal the Secret features production by DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Spinna, Da Beatminerz, Marco Polo and Oddisee.

All producer's hail from Japan... Japan is slowly rising as a Musical production force in my book. Especially after hearing this Woodblue shit. Both these discs are on the more ambient bangin vibe.. And finally, all praise go to Musical Schizophrenia for turning me onto this shit... Go over there and give him some props. But listen to this shit while you do.

The Woodblue albums are INSANE, really hot shit on there. Don't give up on a Track because you don't like the first minute, almost all of the Woodblue tracks flip about halfway through into a completely different jam. And it is usually better than the first half... I can't say which album I like better, so get them both. Woodblue = DOPE.

Woodblue - "North Source"

Woodblue - "North Letter"

Next we have a disc from Opgave... Don't really know too much besides that he used to be from Japan, but now resides in LA. Someone requested this in the C-Box, so I tracked it down. It's a short 6 tracks, but there is some good stuff.

Opgave - "Writing The Silver EP"

Next up is Kenmochi Hidefumi. Got this from the C-Box because homeboy said he was like Nujabes. It's good, but definitely not up to Nujabes standards. It's not nearly hip hop enough. It's a good album, some cool guitar and shit. Some tracks just aren't my thing though, Check it out and let me know what y'all think. The title track "Falliccia" is the best I'd say...

Kenmochi Hidefumi - "Falliccia"

And finally, the last album has absolutely nothing to do with Japan. Haha, I just came across this over @ HHB via Deap, and I've been a fan of Anomaly for a while now and thought I had all of his shit. This album was new to me... It is almost 10 years old, so the sound is a little different, but it is pretty dope. REALLY, really dark jams with some hot drums, this would have been more appropriate around Halloween time. But check it out, I think alot of y'all will be feelin this. RowanB? Espionage? I think you'll dig it...

Anomaly - "Howle's Book"

Finally, last but not least, A new track from Emancipator... He is workin on a new album currently, and just finished up a tour of Japan. So, I figured this was Legit to add to the post. I CANNOT WAIT to hear some more new shit from this kid. Check It:

Alright... That's about it. Some more crack for all you fiends. Definitely zone out on that Woodblue shit, I have. And keep a lookout getting closer to christmas, I've got some audible presents for all of you mahfuckas. The E-Tree will be filled come Christmas time, and it's definitely going to have an album that will rival all of the rest from 2008. So BE READY! Peace...

Some New...

Word Fam. Back up in it. Gonna keep this short & sweet so let's get started: RowanB made a request for the MF Grimm & Kool G Rap freestyle from the Stretch & Bobbito 5 Year Anniversary show. It is so insane everybody needs to hear it. I am very happy I came across the track on Stretch's Blog, Grimm is easily on my top 5, I love his flow and his true skills are really displayed on this track. He basically takes over, G Rap bows out about halfway through and lets Grimm annihilate the mic. For real, one of the best Freestyles EVER. And afterwards I included the end of the show, where they take phone calls and basically diss on everybody that calls. It is fucking hilarious. One fool calls in and drops some pretty hot rhymes, he gets props, but the rest of the callers get their asses handed to 'em... I got 'em up on Rapid & Zshare, so those of you with working Zshare's can preview the tracks, otherwise get 'em from Rapid. Check them both out, it's some historic shit coming from a historic time.

So, like I was saying: I'm listening to A LOT of DJ Frane lately, and this his latest album. Really good shit here, Tons of samples and just great music. Flows through many genres, but remaining Hip Hop. This is a really dope album, put it on when you're just chillin around the house blazin. Really good stoned headphone music... You can pick up his other projects at Acapella Archives. Go get 'em if you like this disc...

DJ Frane - Journey to the Planet of Birds

Here we have Beatmakin Troopa's new release. For those of you that have been coming here for awhile and snagged Troopa's other releases, you'll know what's up. Those of you new to Beatmakin Troopa can expect sounds similar to Blockhead & 40 Winks. This disc is dope, it flows like a Day, starts out slow & sunny, gets more busy & layered through the middle of the album, then the last few tracks are perfect for night & driving at dark. I highly recommend the final track, "Last Breath" Check it out.

Beatmakin Troopa - Search For Peace <<>

Beatmakin Troopa - Search For Peace

Now this Aether album, and the following Nozebleed one I came across over @ HHB, via this dude "Sniper" who posted both of them. He's been posting some good stuff. BUT, these two albums are both REALLY good. I'm listening to Aether right now, and have been since last night when I got it. Check that one out first, the Aether disc, it is bangin and really diverse. I guess he is out of San Antonio?!?! I don't know but Texas has got some ILL producer's... Don't pass these up, get 'em...

Aether - Artifacts
[link removed at artist's request...check this link for Aether downloads & remixes. -djesp]

Nozebleed - Heart Beats Digital

And here we have a disc from one half of that Asian producer duo, "Eternal Morning". This is from Pe2ny, who has some other releases also, but I dug this one the most. Real similar to Nujabes & Nomak, that classic Asian Hip Hop sound. More orchestrated/layered tracks. Not too many loops found here. Check this disc out if you liked the Eternal Morning release from my previous post...

Pe2ny - Alive Soul Cuts

And finally, going to finish things off with some new stuff from Yppah... I pulled these 6 tracks from his Myspace, so the quality isn't superb or anything, but all the tracks are really dope. I really liked his first album, and by the sound of these tracks I'm getting more excited for his next solo release... Don't know how many of you saw that movie "21" about the MIT card-counting kids, anyway the track "Again with the Subtitles" from his first album was featured in that movie. Pretty dope exposure. Anyway, enjoy these tracks...

Yppah - Myspace EP

Alright, I'm out... Comment, whatever. Every album in this post is bangin so get 'em all. But put that Aether at the top of the list, I'd say it is the Gem out of the bunch. Enjoy the beats fam, and get excited for the end of the month, I've got a special drop coming around Xmas. PEACE.

back to hiphop

Here is 74 Hiphop instrumentals from my vault that you might have, but probably don't.

There are joints from Babu's Duck Season 3, The Layover, Tronic, and various other projects.
