House Shoes - Let It Go 2xLP [TRES Records]

House Shoes – Let It Go 2xLP [TRES Records]

Long time collaborator of J Dilla and Big Proof releases debut album on TRES Records. It feels wrong, though, to call this a 'debut' record because it doesn't sound like a first-try. Official debut, or not, House Shoes is not new. He released the now treasure-hunted Jay Dee 'Unreleased EP' (1996), and Phat Kat's classic 'Dedication to the Suckers' (1999) on his own imprint. He's produced for the late Big Proof (D12), J Dilla, Elzhi, and Danny Brown. He's DJ'ed for Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Mayer Hawthorne, Slum Village, and too many more to list.

Shawn Jackson – Maan Up! 12″ [Tres Records]

Thes One’s Tres Records has its finger firmly on the pulse of quality no nonsense Hip Hop. Previous heat includes various People Under The Stairs projects, Lightheaded, Giant Panda and Damu the Fudgemunk amongst others. After involvement in various collaboration projects, LA native and Tres signee Shawn Jackson (of C.R.A.C) dropped a solid solo debut at the arse end of last year - and in keeping with the defecation theme - his new 12’ is simply... the shit.
