Making a beat for the greatest voice in Hip Hop can be some pretty big shoes to fill. When Guru first heard DJ Lord Ron’s raw production style on the boards, he knew that they had to get in the studio together. DJ Lord Ron has been getting busy on his MPC-60 since the early 90′s with production credits for artists like C Rayz Walz, Krumbsnatcha and Group Home. In 2003, Guru linked up with Lord Ron and recorded a few joints. “Propaganda” was one of the tracks that came out of those sessions. The songs they recorded were independently released but still slipped under the radar. In honor of Guru, we’ve resurrected these lost gems on a classic format: the cassingle.

The Brand New Heavies mark their momentous return with Forward, their first studio album since the 2006 LP Get Used To It. The project – scheduled to drop on May 21st – is lead by the single “Sunlight” and a massive amount of anticipation from fans who have been longing for a renaissance of the soul revival cemented by the acid jazz pioneers during 90s. With Forward, the Brand New Heavies mark a return to their signature sound, despite a changing of the guard that finds Dawn Joseph taking over lead vocals for N’Dea Davenport – the powerhouse songstress some consider the voice of the ‘Heavies. Though she has reportedly relinquished the captain’s chair, Davenport does appear on a few tracks while Joseph commences to putting her foot in the remaining joints.
