Donkey Pitch started out as a midweek party in a small club below a pub. It now has grown out to be a record label with some very exciting releases. Slugabed, Ghost Mutt, 813 and Keyboard Kid are some of the artists on their roster. Today a new EP dropped by The Range. This is the follow-up to his 2012 Donkey Pitch release ‘Disk‘. The first track is our favorite. Over a fast flipped vocal sample he lays down some mellow melodies.
The sunny days are here. Mutant Joe provides the perfect tunes for those lovely summer chill out sessions. These soul drenched hip hop beats hit the right tune. Show your support!
Strange U is the collaborative effort between Kashmere and producer Dr Zygote and they are back with dark beats and mocking lyrics. Strange U is an original and almost counter formation that might be needed in the mainly one-sided temporary hip-hop industry. With this new EP they deliver raw beats combined with assertive raps and maintain the same message throughout the whole record. Have a listen for your own here below.
The new release of Strange U is a brew of raw beats and raps. Eglo Records is being a bit mysterious about this duo. They didn’t reveal much info about their identity, but after some googling we found out we are dealing with the beatsmith Dr Zygote and Kashmere Iguana. Last year a few spooky video’s appeared on youtube. Today this video, directed by Alexander Nut, dropped for the track ‘Klaatu Barada Nikto’. For now the EP is only available on vinyl, but the digital version will follow soon.

Russian producer and label owner DZA teamed up with Kidkanevil for this ‘Kaiju‘ Ep. The Japanese word “Kaiju” literally means “strange beast” and is also used to refer to monster movies like Godzilla. This Ep is quite the beast. Kaiju beats is what they do and make Kidkanevil and DZA stand out. Both producers proof to be pretty familiar with making good use of your eardrums. The opening track ‘Scarecrow’ starts off with heavy bass drums and percussion samples to eventually be embraced by raw synth stabs. It immediately sets the tone.
