Salva has been dropping nothing but major releases all over this year. Not everything was my style, I admit, but gotta hand it to Paul for really taking the bull by the horns. His latest “Yellobone” EP will be released next month on FoF Music. I remember meeting Paul last summer in Frisco and he seemed like a quite guy. This year he’s participating in the Red Bull Music Academy. Thanks to FoF for leaking the best song on the EP and making it available as a free download! Grab some Salva & B. Bravo funk while it lasts..
Earlier this month we warned you about Moka Only who’s about to release his “Crickets” album together with Swiss producer Chief. A free download of the title song “Crickets” is still available, but we thought you’d like to hear some brand new sneak peaks. The entire project will be out November 8 on Feelin’ Music and is already available as pre-order.

Buddy B Got That Swang:
My homie B. Bravo sent me his “Kiss & Tell” EP many months ago and I’ve been enjoying that ish eversince. It’s finally out today on Earnest Endeavours and I wanted to let ya’ll know the Frisco Funkster is back. Hard to pick a fav, but I guess it would have to be the title track featuring Zackey Force Funk and “Swang” no doubt. Grab that digital dopeness over at and support that boomin’ Funk!

Broken Glasses Everywhere:
I can’t even remember the last time I put on some Full Crate music. Must admit that it’s been a while since Crate caught my attention, but with his long awaited “Golden Glasses” EP he seems to have strung a cord. On the EP we hear a few electronic influences (reminding a little of HudMo), that give this debut Wonderful Ear release a very up to date sound. Now I remember when Crate got these glasses a while ago and he loved them to death. But over the years they began to decay and bits & pieces started to chip. I guess with this release he’s saving up for some very expensive bifocals. So with that in mind, please make sure you pre-order the vinyl 10″ at Rush Hour or go digital over at .

Shout out to Cory from Okayplayer for hitting us up about Louisiana-native Greg Banks. This singer/songwriter/model/actor won a won a B.E.T College Tour Competition and yet wasn’t on my radar. His latest song entitled “Soul” is available as a free download and is taken from the forthcoming “A Gentleman’s Journal” mixtape and will have many ladies sighing in harmony I bet.
The Golden $200:
WTF!?!!…where the heck has this beauty of a song been hiding all this time? Flying Lotus produced (and streamed on his Soundcloud) this extremely sexy bonus track of the Japanese version of Thundercat‘s “The Golden Age of Apocalypse”. It features Austin Peralta and let’s be honest…“$200 TB” is by far the sickest bonus track I’ve heard in a while! Big up Brainfeeder.

The Tru Shapes of Things To Come:
A few months ago we got this promo CD in the mail and it slipped my mind that this “Shapes 11:01” compilation was released last week. I remember this new Mark de Clive-Lowe song, “Push”, of his upcoming “Renegades” album being on there (also out on Tru Thoughts next month). It features Bembe Segue and Nia Andrews on the vocals. This compilation is out on 2 x CD and on vinyl (available at HHV.de) and contains some heavy hitters from Zed Bias aka Maddslinky, MdCL, Nostalgia 77, Hidden Orchestra, Quantic and a whole lot more.

Headhunters On Plug:
For those unaware it all started out when Black Spade moved to the west and met fellow producer Proh Mic at the Do-Over in LA. They hit it off from the bat and soon brought in I,Ced. Ced was living in Hawthorne California at the time thus the Hawthorne Headhunters collective were born. When Coultrain also joined, the group released their debut EP in 2009 with HVW8. Along the way a lot has changed and Proh Mic and Ced decided to go their own way and persue a solo career. Black Spade and Coultrain recorded their “Myriad of Now” album which will be released next year on Plug Research and has lots of elements of hip hop, soul, funk, pop and electronic influences. It speaks on spirituality, sexuality and everything in between. You might remember us posting “Teleport” of of the “If You Were My Baby” single. Next up is their fresh 5-track EP which is available on as of today.

Here’s some brand new Cali hiphop from TrUe TheFuture. The first taste of his upcoming project is called “¡Enjoi!” and was produced by Berkeley native Ambigious Sounds. The homie Elaquent is also doing some production on this project due August 16th so keep an eye out for this one.
EDIT: Just received a download link from Ryan aka TrUe TheFuture so I wanted to share the entire project with you guys!
Miss Neco Redd might be a name you all have heard of but can’t quite remember where you heard it. She has done several vocal features for Platinum Pied Pipers (“One Love To U” & “Better Days”), DJ Mitsu (“Right Here”) and Byron & Onra (“Love”). Last year she put out her “No Discipline” EP and has now returned with her “The Full Disclosure” album which is available as a free download. Honestly I could only find one song on there I like, but perhaps you can find a few more. Thought I’d share this with you guys since it’s a freebie.
