The subject matter found on “Concentration Gradient” is very political and introspective in nature ranging from current events to spiritual matters. Having worked on the album for some time now the duo feel they have constructed a project that will hit a nerve with its listeners. Tracks like “Had Enough” and “They Coming” focus on the pressures and hardships of modern society while songs like “Heaven” take a more positive and forward-thinking stance.
The vintage hip hop sound is still the underlying force behind their music but this project is much more aggressive musically and lyrically. Awon’s delivery is firmer and Kameleon ventures into newer territory sample-wise. The result is an album hip hop heads young and old can feel.
“SmooVth” , underground fan favorite of the duo Tha Connection, from Hempstead NY, sharing the same stomping grounds as Roc Marciano and Prodigy of Mobb Deep, releases his 3rd solo album “Red Dot Plot” TODAY. The album is delivered in a soul/grimey tone, mixed with elegant word play by the NY emcee, love this cat man….
watching a whole lotta sci fi/horror joints and loving how the stories played on your senses. yU heard the beat (produced by Usef Dinero) and was reminded of waking up from a dream that he didn’t quite understand, feeling all shook up.
“Serial killer flick, watching.. Maybe I should turn / Or do I like the sight of blood, maybe I’m disturbed”
The song is produced by Usef Dinero, a very dope cat from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania – who also produced a song on yU’s upcoming album The EARN, called “Write On”. Folks should stay on the lookout for an upcoming project from Usef & yU called “Flying High.” Disturbed also features vocalist B.Jamelle – who was able to match the songs mood perfectly, with some haunting oohs & ahhs. She is also finishing up an EP w/ yU’s 1978ers’ partner Slimkat78.
After Has-Lo’s brilliant debut, In Case I Don’t Make It, the producer/emcee has stayed busy working on his upcoming project, a re-envisioning of ICIDMI, entitled Conversation B. To hold fans over until the November 15th release of Conversation B, Has-Lo decided to team up with Illegal Promo to put out some music from his vaults. The result, Illegally Yours, a free ep.
About the Ep:
Fidgeting in his dusty archives, Has-Lo found some gems that made their way onto the project ”Illegally Yours”. The five track ep highlights work Has-Lo had done prior to his debut album release. Illegally Yours features production from Odin Smith, DJ Soulclap, Danny Diggs, and Has-Lo himself, along with a feature from iCON the Mic King.
Found On: Qwazaar & Batsauce’s “Style Be The King”
Even though the collaborative LP, “Bat Meets Blaine” dropped earlier this week, one of the dopest producers, whom unfairly is overlooked more often than not, Batsauce and one of the most stylistic emcees in the game, Qwazaar (Typical Cats, Outerlimitz, Dirty Digital) also laced the public with an EP that I FORGOT to include on my best releases of the year list late late week *slaps forehead*. The “Style Be The King” EP was/is pure heat. Reeking of originality, this EP not only set the tone for the LP (which, I still haven’t heard yet!) but also gained a few “eyebrow raising” reviews in the process.
Check out the brand new music video from the Bat Meets Blaine Album From Quazaar and Batsauce. I have spent a few days on the album now and I Know has come to be one of my favorites off the album. Fun Fact: Although the background looks like it was green screen, its not its just the Southern California View . Enjoy!
Yup! I know it’s been a minute, but after some discussion with Trav & O, it looks like we’re getting back into the swing of things here at B-House. Next on the plate, we have a mix I did back in the early stages of summer that boasts some of 1991′s finest selections. Non-stop goodness on this outing. Damn, remember when EVERYTHING hovered around 110 BPMs? Well, this jawn doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. ENJOY!! Hit the skip for the tracklist and download link…oh, and masterfully blended by myself, lol.
Some of you will remember Qwazaar from a group call the Typical Cats and some of you will remember Batsauce from everything awesome you have heard last year. Well the two of these musical genius have teamed up and as of a few hours ago dropped Bat meets Blaine. Batsauce is a musical chameleon possessing the ability to blend in beats with any style of artist. Qwa has one of my favorite style of flows, melodic and witty and when combined with Batcause beats the listeners musical focus in limbo rapidly switching back and forth from beat to lyric.
Check out the Bat Meets Blaine project at the link below.
The album is now available on all major digital distribution.
