Paranom & Purpose - 'Life Outside The Frame' CD Now Shipping
12/10: Ill Adrenaline Records & Tragic Allies strike again! Adding onto previous releases: Purpose & Confidence, and 7 G.E.M.S., Purpose of Tragic Allies teams up with up-and-coming lyricist and latest Tragic Allies member Paranom to deliver a 19-track, strong boom-bap heater entitled "Life Outside The Frame". As already the case for the critically acclaimed 7 G.E.M.S. project, Purpose once again handles the entire production on this offering, ranging from rugged uptempo joints to jazzy, conscious, and mellow vibes. Being featured only on two tracks, Purpose this time concentrates fully on providing stellar instrumentals that complement Paranom's excellent lyrical, and even cryptic skills. With the ability to fuse different musical influences into a raw, but soulful sound of Hip-Hop, Paranom's aim is to further evolve an ever growing culture into a more balanced art form, one that's rooted in self-empowerment and realization, freedom, and discovery.
Atmosphere - 'Seven's Travels (Anniversary Edition)' Vinyl Now Shipping
12/10: It features the original 19 tracks pressed on two white vinyls, a third black vinyl that will contain the hidden Minneapolis city anthem "Say Shh," three bonus songs from the original vinyl pressing, two b-side only releases and two additional tracks record in 2003. All of this will be packaged together for the first time ever on 3,000 gold foil stamp numbered copies with a revised version of the original's cover art. No longer appearing as an ode to The Beatle's White Album, the new cover displaces a naked woman's body lying on a lawn with tall blade of grass and brush. The classic original logo was the only thing that stayed the same.
Madlib - 'Rock Konducta Part 1' Vinyl Now Shipping
12/10: Rock Konducta – which will be presented in two LP volumes – is the fifth installment in Madlib's Beat Konducta series. Previous entries include: Beat Konducta : Movie Scenes, Beat Konducta: in India, Beat Konducta: Dil Cosby and Dil Withers Suites and Beat Konducta in Africa. Rock Konducta grabs its source material from various worldwide rock scenes from the 60s through the 80s, from American psychedelia to Germany's krautrock to acid-soaked Spanish prog to synthy, early-80s oddities. Tied together by Madlib's unique sensibility, these scenes coalesce into a new whole, and open the forum for the question: if these 26 tracks are his introduction, where will he lead with Vol. 2?
Oddisee - 'Tangible Dream' CD Now Shipping
12/10: Tangible Dream is a mix-tape dedicated to the deconstruction of our traditional ideas of success & shedding light on the possibility of a sustainable rap life. These rhymes were written in economy class seats, these beats were produced on long bus trips & these songs were recorded in apartments. All I want to do is make music for a living so that I can live to make music. The only dreams I'm interested in are the ones I can grasp. It just so happens that anything you want bad enough can be obtained. Perhaps the world may never know of my accomplishments but accomplishments they are nonetheless. Vinyl available for pre-order.
Damu The Fudgemunk - 'Spare Overtime' Vinyl Now Shipping
12/10: Newly recorded, re-sequenced and retitled versions of the beloved instrumentals were prepared for this album. Both "Spare Time" and "Overtime" have been consolidated into one and in the vein of "How it Should Sound", Damu revisited all the old floppy disks to create the best listening experience. Constructed on his MPC 2000, the album is intact with The Fudgemunk's signature production style and interludes. Two freshly composed unreleased tracks were conceived exclusively for the deluxe version which includes a 45. This is quite a bonus for fans who want more new music from Damu the Fudgemunk. Damu's previous release, the "Spur Momento Trailer EP" was a step in a new sonic direction. Deluxe Vinyl also shipping and CD available for pre-order.
7 Days Of Funk (Dam-Funk + Snoop Dogg) CD Now Shipping
12/10: The King of Modern Funk meets the smoked-out scion of G-Funk on the 7 Days of Funk album, where Snoop performs under the name Snoopzilla, the homage to the legendary funk master, Bootsy Collins, who often went by the moniker Bootzilla. After an initial chance meeting two years ago, Dam and Snoop began to collaborate when Snoop invited Dam to perform with him at a 2011 SXSW show - the musical connection was inherent. Vinyl also shipping.
