Soundcheck Regaz je grupa osnovana 2013., i čine je dva člana vodnjanske grupe Dem Crew (Marino Morosin aka Rinomabeatz i Eric Ušić).
Nakon uspješnog prvijenca Dem-O, tri godine kasnije izbacuju novi demo uradak pod jednostavnim ali zanimljivim nazivom Macchiato i čaša vode. Ova kompilacija sadržava 18 pjesama od kojih su neke i na talijanskom jeziku. Cijeli je album popraćen chill instrumentalima i live izvedbama mladih glazbenika Ivana Jovića i Kristijana Ljubišića. Uz njih na albumu gostuju neafirmirani mladi izvođači Marko Bogović, Ivan Cossara, Sista Julie i Toni Flego. Album je karakterističan po eksperimentalnoj glazbi i društveno osvještenim tekstovima.

Album možete skinuti OVDJE.

After hearing about Lauryn Hill’s mission to pay off her tax debt, there was news that new music from the songstress is on its way. So now we have Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix), which dropped accompanied by a Tumblr from Ms. Hill herself explaining why she chose to release it:

Hello All: Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked! – MLH
