Blackout Top News

There’s no doubt about it that Brooklyn births some of the most stone cold characters in our nation’s history. From Bugsy Siegel to Biggie, Brooklynites never back down from any challenge, even it it involves making enemies in the process. But through the lyrically poised Innocent?, scrappy spitter Ruste Juxx, and raw rhymes of Sean Price, “Silent Murder” gives you an insight of the inner workings of Crooklyn. Devoid of hooks and over produced beats, it’s a potent, choir sampling joint that’s full of bars detailing the trio’s hustle and love for their borough. “Silent Murder” is taken from T.H.E.M. Recordings forthcoming ‘Killin’ the Game’ compilation.. stay tuned!

Download the track here.

Sun Season

As sunrays start to shimmer through the weakening clouds, they announce the end of one season and the beginning of another. While heat rises from their machinery and scorches their hands, the UC members continue to murmur chants of the Sun and prepare solar beats to chase away the rain.
With energy and warmth just steaming from the sampled records to the blazing beats, the Sun Season will surely brighten any listeners’ upcoming days.

De La Soul x J Dilla - Smell The Da.I.S.Y. (Limited vinyl edition)

What’s up y’all! We are happy to announce the release of the limited edition vinyl of “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” in-stores 4/18. The vinyl will be a all instrumental version of the “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” project. It contains 12 tracks that include all 11 of the “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” instrumentals plus one exclusive never heard before J Dilla beat.
We decided to release a all instrumental version of “Smell The Da.I.S.Y.” to give people the experience of a J Dilla beat tape that we were so lucky to receive. These beat tapes were the springboard that generated creation and generated inspiration for us.
The vinyl release is very, very limited, only 100 copies will be released to stores to resemble the limited amount of beat tapes that Dilla would send out to artists like Tribe Called Quest, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Common, Mos Def, Busta, and De La.
Dilla was a heavy crate digger that scoured the earth digging for exclusive vinyl to sample, and if you want this vinyl project you’ll have to dig the same. We are not releasing the record store information so if you would like to find a copy go to our website for clues.

Koolade:

In this 11th Kooler Hour edition we had a load of specials. Started off with Urban click and their two beat tapes Mud Season and Rain Season.
Then i played 3 tunes from Ackrite and other artists on Huh Whut & Where Recordings.After yet another HW&W special i played a new Soulection release, Tom Misch EP, and then went on with a few trap tracks, a few uptempo remixes etc.
At the break of the 2nd hour, this show’s main special was all about Moz, a Croatian beatmaker/producer.
After the Moz special, i did yet another special. I played a few tracks off the MoRuff’s new release, and then went on with a few hip hop tracks and my usual chilled out closing of the show.
