Ohhh Ras!!! Raw Fruit Vol.3 debuted this weekend at Stones Throw’s cassette store day. It’s a Leaving Records release. The brotha from anotha planet is one of the main members of the Brainfeeder crew and a torchbearer for the LA beat scene. The third installment of the Raw Fruit series brings another bunch of freestyle tracks. Raw beats, no rules. Tracks he makes to smoke weed to. The cassettes are still available over at Stones Throw. Have a listen to the track ‘Walk With Me’, and don’t forget: Spacebase is the place.
OH RAS! He’s back with the fourth installment of his Raw Fruit series. Another good dose of experimental beats from your brother from another planet. Get ready to take a ride.
Jon Phonics, Budgie, K15, Celestial Trax and other groovy dudes all together on this compilation piece. The second installment of Frass FM from Astral Black. You can get sassy with this one.
Shortly after the release of DJ Rashad‘s Rollin’ EP a video appeared for the track ‘I Don’t Give A Fuck’. Apparently it is the title track for his new EP that dropped today. Spin has the privilege of premiering the EP. On most of the tracks he collaborated with other members of Teklife. ‘Everybody’ must be my favorite track of the EP. The sample they used makes the track humorous. Read an interview with DJ Rashad and have a listen to the EP over here.
Leaving Records releases some footwork/juke rhythms with the ‘Menace In The Phantom’ album from Cakedog, also known as Ahnnu. This album is inspired by the Battlegroundz of Chicago, as you can see from the cover of the cassette, and a homage to the works of the late, great DJ Rashad. This album delivers a good dose of legitimate tracks, with the footwork trademark swift snares and hasty hi-hats. Get yourself a copy of the cassette over at Stones Throw, including a digital download.
Music inspired by house and hip hop with a glorious shuffle. That’s how Wot Not describes this new release, coming from Glenn Astro. It’s true. From the first track ‘The Power’ till ‘Fizzy Water’ you get to hear different types of beats and tempos that make it hard to label his music. And that’s good. Each track is a new suprise. Rasho T, Deft and Medlar all made a crazy remix. Go get it here.
