It is a golden era in German hip-hop production! North America is focused on moving away from the Golden Era sound that heavily samples classic jazz and soul records, Germany and Europe are embracing it. The German record imprint Melting Pot Music has a roster of some dope emcees and producers, one of their up and coming producers, is the illustrious Flofilz. He just dropped his newest album Cenário, and it is dope. If you love jazz and hip-hop, cop this album. It is more refined, with some more intricate arrangements than his previous release Metronom. Don’t wait!!
The New Zealand Hiphop group Soul Chef just dropped the remixed EP of their dope album Good Vibes. They recruited some heavyweight producers to revamp their tracks. Soul Square, out of France, starts the EP with a pumpin jazzy vibe and then continues with Flofilz provided a more mellow sound. Soul Chef always comes correct with their lyrics and delivery, the new productions just gives you another set of tracks to bob your head to.
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!!
Sorry guys and gals, it has been a long minute since the last post. But let’s get to the music, no time to waste there is a lot of music that needs to be talked about it. The standout is Flofilz’s new Quiet Times Mix, the second instalment continues on that mellow sound, it ranges from your cool jazz to some acoustic soul. I personally think Flofilz has an unbelievable ear, his selections are on point. He takes you on a musical journey, leaving you guessing on the direction he is going to take you next. Don’t sleep on this mix, it is perfect for any late summer night.
