Our inbox was blessed by some soulful music from Diggs Duke who released his debut “Gravity” EP last week via bandcamp. My first thought was ‘where the heck has this guy been hiding’, but I soon realized it was in Maine. I’m sure we’re gonna be posting a lot more of his music in 2012! Good news…the first 200 downloaders can download this one for free by filling in a $0 price or you can also put down any other price you seem fit to support future projects. Diggs will be releasing another EP in a few months and is hoping to get a full-length album out there as well in the future (which I am sure he will be doing on some fortunate independent label). This is the perfect way to start you Monday..and a free download on our Soundcloud page especially for the people who missed out on Bandcamp!
Hailing from Los Angeles, KING, is an organic trio of young women. Paris, Amber and Anita met by chance in Boston and were destined to make music together. Their debut project is called “The Story” EP and sounds a bit like a modern-day fairytale. The EP dropped today so get it via if you dig.
Our man Ta-Ku hit us up with a little exclusive for you guys. A few weeks ago he did an instrumental edit of a tune that’s making it’s way through the pop charts at the moment. Unlike that version, Ta-Ku’s version features the vocals of none other than Miles Bonny who compliments the beat nicely and turns it into some “Down To Earth Club Music”.
One of the first exclusive premieres and available as a free download below.
Many of you have been waiting for this since Voodoo and some of you might have given up all hope. Judgement day is at hand and D’Angelo‘s “James River” album prelude is a fact. The album contains some alternate tracks recorded during the James River studio sessions as well as the first single picked from James River, “1,000 Deaths”. Real D’Angelo fans…get your own copy of this CD at Rush Hour!
What a coincidence we’re playing tonight at a vinyl only event in Rotterdam called “Analog”. So we can really relate to Vlooper and Modlee‘s latest “AnaloG LovE” album, which came out on Gergaz recently. Nice Vlooper productions with a more soulful twist then usual. His loving wife is doing a pretty nice job on the vocals and I would say, keep this up. Enjoy the free download, sit back and press play. [Perf10]

To celebrate her 25th birthday & to finally give people a taste of what to come in the following years, Rotterdam native Esperanzah has released her free “Birthday” EP. Apart from Sense (with whom she forms Esperanzah & Sense) and Bluntspeakers (with whom she forms AquaNova) production is also done by newcomer extraordinair Danny William of Furlan Williams. You can download the full EP over at Bandcamp.
Very nice to hear this new song from Erykah Badu featured on the Girlfriends soundtrack. I’m not a fan of the TV show at all, but I read it’s quite big. Nice track and hope to hear more goodies from this diva real soon. The soundtrack will be available January 27th on amazon or visit iTunes to buy the mp3!
Erykah Badu – Vibrate On
Anthony Valadez is complicated. Passionate about everything, motivated by nothing, inspired by some things, moved by the under dogs of the world. As a kid, Ant used to get into trouble doodling action scenes on his school assignments. His 3rd grade teacher (Mrs Brisco, Langdon Elementary School) made him sit on his hands an entire day due to his excessive drum solos on his desk during class. He was once forced to write a thousand words (me) as punishment for his excessive talking during class..
10 years later, he talks mad shit, speaks his mind, plays the drums and doodles now more so than ever.. But at the tender age of 30, Ant.Vala does it with confidence + swagg. Ant.Vala went on to study theatre in college. Writing a modern day adaptation of the greek tragedy of Antigone utilizing 2 turntables + 1 mixer which toured across Los Angeles in 2003. The production (along with Ant.Valadez) was invited to Shanghai China as part of its annual Shanghai Experimental Theatre Festival. Ant.Valadez later went on to dee jay across the globe from London to Argentina dee jaying @ various functions. He held a solid residence at the Temple Bar for 4 years opening for the likes of Nikka Costa, Les Nubians, Ben Harper, Cee-Lo Green, Van Hunt, Meshell Ndegeocello, Eric Roberson, Raphael Saadiq, Doug E Fresh, Sy Smith, Kim Hill, The Pharcyde, Richard Bona, Money Mark, and much more. AntVa also went on to tour with former Interscope Recording Artist RES across the United States as her tour DJ opening for Talib Kweli and Jean Grae.
At the moment he is now on 89.9 KCRW breaking new sounds of soul + beats + jazz + folks + more.
Ant.Va just released this beautifull track entitled GO feat. Wendisue (Vox), John Robinson aka Lil Sci (Vox) Flying Lotus (keys+ drum sequence) Dexter Story (bass) Rebekah (Harp) Shaunte Palmer (Keys) on Junior’s label Recordbreakin.
