Black Milk - 'No Poison No Paradise' CD & 2LP Now Shipping
10/11: Musically, each of Black Milk's releases have kept one foot dipped in classical boom-bap and the other stomping with a fierce originality and willingness to expand his listeners' sonic palate. "No Poison No Paradise" leaves behind the density and heavily layered sounds of his 2010 release "Album of the Year" in favor of a more stripped-down approach. Some tracks showcase raw sample-driven styles, others flex more sophistication and musicality. Which ever direction he decides to take it, all of the trademark characteristics of Black's music are fully apparent throughout the album: hard drums, melodic synths, and nimble flows. Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of "No Poison No Paradise" is the evolution of Black Milk's lyrical style. While he's never been shy to get personal on the mic, Black introduces a refined ability as a storyteller. "No Poison No Paradise" is another accomplished full-length solo release for Black Milk, and a return to form for one of hip hop's most versatile talents.

10/11: Detroit holdout Boldy James presents My 1st Chemistry Set [M.1.C.S.], his first longplayer and fully collaborative project with LA superproducer The Alchemist. Boldy isn't one to flex his vocabulary or quick tongue, instead instilling weight by deadending each stark stanza. Lack of excess characterizes Boldy's lyrical style and content, and it's cross-applicable to Alchemist's spare, steely beats. On M.1.C.S. Alchemist thrives on forgotten '80s synth lines as well as epic string arrangements and raw drums, the product the two deliver here is one born of utilitarian precision. It's lightning in a bottle with these cooks in the kitchen.

Acrylick Fall '13 Collection Now Available
10/7: Acrylick's Fall 2013 collection appropriately titled, "We Reminisce Over This," is now available...
"This collection is inspired by, and showcases a period we hold dear to us that we wish didn't fade. This period helped set the pace for music, style, entertainment, communication, and media of today. We took the elements we remembered for being notorious, and gave them a proper Acrylick treatment, still keeping things relevant with today. Inspiration stems West and East coast hip-hop, videos games, sports, and even cinematic hood satires such as Boyz In The Hood. A reminder of how much influence this period had on today, every piece is still relatable and fresh."
