Our good friend Leno from Jakarta’s The Goodnws, hit me up to share the “Proportions” album from Exmag. Instantly tickling my ear, so here’s the 411! The group consists of Eric, Mike, Denis aka Gramatik Tyler aka SuperNicer and Bryn aka ILLUMNTR from Brooklyn NY. What they bring you is that soulful sound of the future. Fortunately for us they do so in the form of a gift. To get your hands on a free download just visit their Soundcloud page and hit the free download button. Their philosophy is “All art should be free. Donate to help create a better future for those who once were”. Of course a donation was made from the Moovmnt camp!

DJ Rahdu and the BamaLoveSoul collective have been decreasing your harddrive space since 2008. With their latest “On Deck” 2 compilation they manage to give twelve upcoming artists, such as Rippy Austin, James Tillman, GDNA, Humus, JFinesse and Buscrates, a platform to be heard. Soulful is the keyword on this compilation released via BBE and I think they did a great job. Fresh selection with some raw elements!
