"Veteran" By Name, Veterans By Nature: Tone Chop And Frost Gamble Release New EP And Set
User Rating: / 2

Tone Chop and Frost GambleNot all veterans wore army fatigues and have tales of military tours to tell. Some earned their stripes in the trenches of Hip Hop's battlefields in the 90's by dropping lyrical bombs or nuclear beats on enemy lines. The struggle to become a decorated Hip Hopper was bloody. Many had their careers blown to smithereens by those with an arsenal more hefty than their own. Others became deserters, not having the stamina or skill to continue pushing the culture forward.

George Fields - Beyond Realm LP [Under the Sun]

George Fields - Beyond Realm LP [Under the Sun]To say George delivered the goods with this album is an understatement. Continuing where 'From the Sticks' left off, he takes us on a cosmic journey, from the dreamy countryside of Dorset and into the stratosphere and the unexplored universe. The soundscapes he creates have both an originality and a familiarity to them -perhaps the key to his magical powers, alongside his fastidious attention to detail and quality control - which turns the album from a collection of individual pieces into a unified theory of George's essentially 90s Hip Hop sound.

The Summit - Nocturnes LP [Soundweight]The Summit aka DJ Drinks is a UK producer known to a few for the quality of his productions, and epitomizing the 90s jazzy boombap sound that is currently enjoying a mini renaissance both in UK Hip Hop and globally. This album is somewhat of a hidden gem, stylishly presented and opening with a superb moogy-analogue thing, it then breaks into a series of lush beats with heavy drums, low filtered bass lines, vibes and / or echoed voice samples etc.

Chairman Maf - 1976 LP [Village Live]Fortunately for the world, the Village Live label has released the Chairman Maf album '1976' on wax, originally only available digitally (released in 2013). Maf has already gained quite a bit of attention from his other instrumental albums which each bring to life the musical universe inside his mind, drawn from an extremely diverse range of sounds and samples. Both 'Paint' and 'Soup' are great listens and '1976' also has many layered bangers.

DJ Moe Love - Digging in the Tapes, I Ain't Dead Yet LP [King of the Beats]Moe Love from Ultramag is back with this selection of beats recorded between 1993-2015 made on the SP 12/1200. Moe's beats contain many of the elements you would expect keeping it simple throughout, with some easily recognizable samples (Skull Snaps etc.) and whole lot of other seriously ill dusty stuff he's chopped and looped for your listening pleasure.
