Brand new mixtape from the French DJ Just Dizle. This one has more of a R&B flavor to it, so sit back and enjoy.
Played like a cassette tape… Left In The Deck… is a collection of 10 raw, grimy recordings made in basements and hotel rooms around the world. This demo-tape style release was produced entirely by Jake One. These songs were left in their original demo form and are intended only for Brother Ali’s family of direct supporters.
With his most recent album Yeezus still making the plenty of noise, there was no question whether Kanye West should take on a widescale tour in light of the project’s success. Today the G.O.O.D. Music general has officially announced that he will be embarking on a number of dates across the US with Top Dawg’s very own, Kendrick Lamar. As two of the current leading figures in hip-hop, we’re expecting the pair to undoubtedly produce sold out shows across it entirety, which will act as Kanye’s first official solo tour in five years.
Take a look at the full list of dates after the jump.
Legendary producer DJ Premier sits down with Mass Appeal to explain the mindset behind our Gang Starr-inspired collaboration and how the original Gang Starr logo first came to be. Created by Guru and Big Shug, Premier explains, “the chain is the bond of the artists and the star is the talent inside the chain”.
KCRW’s Anthony Valadez put together a mix of Stones Throw releases and wrote a little about his own experience with the label:
In the late 90′s there was this time in the California hip-hop landscape that catered towards those who appreciated lyrics, rhymes and beats. Groups from the Bay Area began to experiment with an emphasis on production. Shadow, Hieroglyphics, Blackalicious all stood out but it was the obscure name of a gentleman by the name of Peanut Butter Wolf from San Jose who began to appear in the record bins around BeatNonStop and Aarons Records around Hollywood and on the liner notes of compilations and his own releases that always caught my eye.
Step on Our Egos was the first 12′ of Wolf’s that I purchased and there was something about the production and authenticity that I appreciated. Next, Charizma’s 2003 release Big Shots struck my ear while a sophomore, hosting my weekly radio show on KCSN. The label moved to L.A. and the label manager Egon assisted me in getting all the new Stones Throw releases. I began to see first hand at just how important they valued their relationship with college radio and the DJ culture. They made the DJ’s feel connected to the brand. They began to push new artists on the roster who at the time made us scratch our heads only to get it and appreciate it 2 years later. Stones Throw began to develop it’s roster across the musical board with the traditional boom bap styles of Madlib, Lootpack to the obscure sounds of Gary Wilson and Koushik. When you bought or received a Stones Throw 12′ or album, you never knew what you were going to get. And this made record shopping and digging fun again.
Nakon više od 20 godina na domaćoj graffiti sceni, Krešimir Buden, umjetničkog imena 2Fast, izlazi iz uobičajenih okvira oslikavanja zidova i predstavlja istraživanje vlastitog 3d stila na neuobičajen način – graffiti skulpturama.
Objekti svojim oblicima fizički izlaze i podloge i zaustavljeni u svojoj kretnji savijanja i rotiranja tvore dosad neotkrivenu dimenziju graffiti umjetnosti.
