Alongside Soul Music, Jazz has always been a strong foundation for the evolving Hip-Hop sound, from heavy bass lines to melodic instrumental work, there is a definite relationship. This relationship is explored and defined with Impromptu Notes.

Paris beginning of the 80's the Skinhead movement came to France, and is about to make headlines for the decade to follow, at once provocative and racist crimes. Bands are formed and develop a real guerrilla warfare to counter the fascist offensive...
Thx 2 the homie Markus for peeping me the new video by Fam-Lay. You may know him from several Neptunes projects where he is also signed (The Neptunes' Star Trak). After his last release in 2008, "Dat Missile", he is actually working on a new LP. Stay tuned..shit makes fun.
After listening to Danny`s new album a couple of times I felt I had to digg this guy Quelle of Crown Nation. Turns out he produced the best song of Danny Brown`s last solo effort, I didn`t catch his name back when it dropped though. I think you should check Quelle out aswell.
By the way "Quelle" is "fountain" or "originator" in German. Why the fuck didn`t I think of this name?
Sick track though!
Kutmah (Brainfeeder): I WAS PLAYING AROUND WITH AN EDIT OF ''I WISH IT WOULD RAIN'' BY THE SOULFUL STRINGS AND THOUGHT IT NEEDED VOCALS. THEN FOUND THE SUFI ACA AND IT SORTA WORKED. I DIDN'T EDIT THE VOCALS DOWN RIGHT SO THEY SORT OF JUST FLOAT OVER THE TRACK. ANYWAY, I REALLY LIKE SONGS WITH ''RAIN'' IN THE TITLE. OH AND ''BUTTER''

First preview on Oddisee's upcoming album "Rock Creek Park" dropping this winter via Mello Music Group. The Carter Barron is an amazing soulful beat, spiked with heavy live instrumentation. The Carter Barron is a smooth, sweeping track, with amazing drums performed by DC's Jon Laine, bass from DC's Dennis Turner, keys from the always dependable Ralph Real, soulful sampling, trademark expansive synth work from Oddisee and beautiful orchestration.
The first full-length release from Danny since his acclaimed The Hybrid in 2010, XXX is a concept record about hedonism, growing up, and Detroit, taking listeners on a profane and psychedelic journey through the uncensored mind of rap’s most electric MC. There’s no laundry list of guest appearances or producers-for-hire, keeping the focus squarely on Danny and his rhymes: a triple stack of pop culture references and did-he-really-say-that? provocations atop the heart of a poet. foolsgold

Good to hear Hostyle dropping new material just like his team member Blaq Poet did. Screwball was a fresh group, but I guess due to the tragic death of KL they will never really get together again, at least I thought I heard this somewhere. They should though.
Rap-P´s mixtape is dropping sometime this week.
Tha Death Row N’Mates (Daz Dillinger, RBX, Lady of Rage and Kurupt) – Tragical
WC feat. Daz, Kurupt, Soopafly and Bad Lucc – Stickin To The Script
I am always looking for some new Kurupt shizzle. Now they are bringing back Death Row as N`Matez. Didn`t they have beef about being on Death Row or not? Well, who knows and who cares. This sound pomising.
By the way what the fuck is wrong with that WC beat?! Yeah dat...
Bilal - Robots Remix Project by Plug Research
Plug Research released a remix EP for Bilal´s Robots some time ago. All of the mixes are dope but the Remy LBO Remix feat Blu is the only one for free. So take this as a present and get the others if you´re willing to pay a little.
When I was young I thought Jazz is something for the well situated, older people who like to sit at home listening to that harmless tootling. Then, when I got a bit older I grabbed Coltrane´s "Impressions" and Hancock´s "speak like a child" from my mum´s crates and realized that the music is actually extremely wild and intense. But somehow I still had an image of an reputable disciplined musician in mind (maybe because of the fine suites). So I was shocked getting to know some of the jazz greatest biographies. And still, I find it quite funny that a lot of the prudent upperclass listen to music of some hardcore drug addicts.
Notes of a jazz survivor allowes an intimate view in the life of an jazzlegend. Although I´m not his biggest fan I liked this well filmed documentary with and about Art Pepper.
