L.A.’s top notch producer Swiff D has always been on the top of our list, when it comes to straight slammin’ hip hop producers.
Swiff D was responsible for some of our favorite Pac Div productions in the past. Just a few days ago, Steve put up ten “Washington Park” instrumentals on his Soundcloud page and we thought you might enjoy hearing some of that illness!
Last month Gagle released their new Hip Hop for you guys from “VG+”. For all you vinyl heads out there, you know the deal. An acceptable state for a vinyl record to be in is Very Good Plus (or VG+). I hear a lot of dope sample-based productions on this one. Although I can’t understand a word that’s being spoken (this is why I decided to stream the intro), I’m down with these cats! Solid album out on Jazzy Sport and available for one and all via iTunes.
It seems like Coast Vega is from all over the place, but we definitely hear some Cali & ATL influences on his latest, “These Moments”, produced by German wunder-producer IAMNOBODI. This jam is by far the best and slightly reminiscent of that ol’ Andre 3000 vibe. Make sure you grab a free download and also take a listen to the rest of his recently released “Reconnected” EP, which contains productions by Sango, Rocboy, UpNorth and Bhontro.
Camden Arc is M-Phazes his brand new side project, exploring new sounds and directions. I think it’s great that producers take time to focus on recreating themselves and getting back some passion again. For his debut release “I Don’t Wanna Fall in Love” he takes an original pop classic and blasts into the future. There’s lots of interesting new elements combined and I think Camden Arc is just getting started. By the way make sure you snatch up a free download! Get ready, cuz I think some game changers are coming our way later this year.
In an era of constant change it brings me joy to hear something fresh yet recognizable. Slakah the Beatchild has is back with “Soul Movement” Vol. 2 and believe you me, it’s well worth $12.99! The mature sultry sound of “Adventure For 2” will soothe the ear of many women. Whereas the fellas will most definitely love the reminiscent “Where’s Yesterday” where truth is told with rhymes like ‘the people are dying for something different’. Ain’t got nothing more to say other than BUY yourself some quality Soul music and support the real!
Ever since we heard this instrumental version, we were wondering what the Daz Dilly version would sound like. Well the single “What’s Yo Pleasure” featuring Snoop Dogg, off the “Weed Money” album, is officially out. Big brother DaM-FunK produced the track and it sound sho’ nuff funky! Available on iTunes.
