I am a little late finding this gem, it is perfect for a late night. There is no need to mention anything about J Dilla productions, but Claire Reneé’s cover of Slum Village’s Climax adds another layer to the dope beat. Claire’s smooth vocals really makes the case that this collabo should’ve been on the album. It has been on heavy rotation, go check her soundcloud page here
Continuing on the sunday jazz fest, FloFilz drops the single Basement Jazz off his new album Speak Thru on the Jakarta Records imprint. If you haven’t heard of FloFilz, get caught up, the german producer is probably my favourite jazz hop beatmaker. He has the ear for slicing and chopping jazz samples over some dope drum patterns. Basement Jazz features the ill talented emcee Blu, his delivery over the beat gives another layer to already sick track. The new album drops December 4, 2015, Cop it!!
MA Doom: Son of Yvonne, the Master Ace album, dropped in 2012 the instrumentals sourced from MF Doom’s Special Herbs. The German producer Melodiesinfonie dropped a remix of the the track Think I Am, the smooth chilled beat does justice to both Masta Ace and MF Doom’s flow and delivery. At the end of the song, you are left with one thing to do, hit repeat!
IAMNOBODI dropped his first length album Elevated in early October and I have been sitting on this album for almost two months. Every time I wanted to write a post I thought I should listen to this album just one more time. With each listen, I discovered something new that made me love this album even more. Elevated is probably in my top 10 albums of the year. IAMNOBODI effortlessly creates these deep and atmospheric beats that takes you to a new level of chill. Even with his banging drums and vocal cuts, this isn’t your typical hip-hop instrumental album, the talented IAMNOBODI creates these landscapes with elements of jazz, house, and soul while staying true to his hip-hop roots. Definitely Cop IT!
