Norwich based label, 2600 Recordings present their debut compilation ‘Home Entertainment’, a collection of some of the finest instrumental hip-hop the UK is producing today. Presenting music from almost every end of the British Isles, the compilation chronicles some major talent on the UK production scene.
Featuring artists that have been a staple on the underground scene for many years, ‘Home Entertainment’ delivers a decidedly pungent kick to the face of other instrumental labels forging a very strong path from the off, serving up heat from a number of producers who prove the are definitely ones to watch.
One such talent is Mr Cooper, a producer who has recently had a track hand picked by the legendary underground emcee, Sage Francis for his ‘Human The Death Dance’ album. Similarly the Kingston based Buddy Peace, who’s previously been enrolled by Canadian label Bully Records to mix up their back catalogue on a limited, exclusive 7” release, serves up a duo of narratives that prove the man’s got serious talent behind the boards.
With tracks from ‘ZILLA’, Lukid, The Contortionist, Tempa, 3rd Party, Brighton legend Req and established producer Waxfactor under his Ambulance Chasers guise, 2600 deliver a formidable line-up of some of the most diverse hip hop tinged production. Taking in post, prog and psych rock elements one must listen to the compilation fully to appreciate its intricacies. Its music for more than just nodding your head to.
