Zo!‘s sophomore album entitled, “ManMade”, is finally here. As a part of the Foreign Exchange music family, he works closely together with Phonte, Sy Smith and Choklate on this release. Other featuring artists are Anthony David, Eric Roberson, 1-O.A.K, and miss Carlitta Durand. The album may sound a bit tradional at times, but all in all I think the title song and “We Are On The Move” make it well worth your while. Be sure to pick this up at the FE shop…if you decide to cop.
A few days ago Tall Black Guy‘s “8 Miles To Moenart” was released into the world. Terrel has been on our radar for quite some time, but I have to admit his latest album got lost in our mailbox. His inspiration for this project was (his hometown) Detroit with it’s rich musical heritage. Luckily I did manage to find it in our messy inbox and I’m glad I did. Like the song with Diggs Duke, but my fave has to be that “Funeral Biz”/”Weclome To Detroit” jawn! Available on limited edition vinyl, CD and in digital format at the First Word shop.
It is our pleasure to introduce Poland’s Hip Hop duo, DJ Czarny & Tas, who asked us to premiere “Dreaming At The Surface” featuring soul singer AB on vocals and Marek Pędziwiatr (Night Marks Electric Trio) on piano and flute. Check out a Moovmnt exclusive stream on our Soundcloud page and be on the look out for their upcoming album due June 7th!
It’s been quite some time since I listened to Benji B’s ‘Deviation’ show, but very recently I heard some new material from fLako aka Dirg Gerner that I wanted to share. Don’t mind the fact that it’s a short low bitrate snippet ripped from the radio, because “Vicious Cycle” is something people should go apeshit about. Another song produced by fLako, of Fatima’s upcoming album entitled “Family”, was played by Benji on the same show. So be on the look out for some new tasty stuff coming out on Eglo Records later this summer!
Now I’ve had this lying around quite some time, but lost track of it I guess. Tokyo Dawn’s “The Heart” volume 3 is not their best compilation ever in my opinion, but worth mentioning at the least. Numbera’s “There I Go” featuring Frank Nitt was a good enough reason for a late write-up.
A while back I asked B. Bravo if he was down to make a Moovmnt guest mix. We tried to upload it, but Soundcloud did not allow us. So we gave it a second shot with a slightly revised mix. Enjoy Adam’s selection of nu skool R&B as he likes to call it and share with you and yours. And again…another nice piece of artwork from the homey Duktus!
We recently received this amazing care package filled with goodies from Omega Supreme Records. Guess thius this is the perfect timing to let ya’ll know about Turquoise Summers who happens to be Dam-Funk’s lil’ cousin. Couldn’t miss with the name P. Riddick in the credits! This Southern California native dropped his debut full-length album, “A Touch of Turquoise”, last month on Omega Supreme Records. The vinyl is already long gone, but there’s still some cassettes available.
