Producer, MC and DJ Melo-X returns with his new mixtape Mustafa’s Renaissance, with features from Mickey Factz, Theophilus London, Jesse Boykins III and others. Download Mustafa’s Renaissance here.
This London based singer hasn’t released a whole lot of music yet, but has already worked with the likes of Illa J on ‘Realness’, which was dedicated to J Dilla. Find out a little bit more about this very humble guy.
Leon King has been playing guitar since he was five years old and at the age of fifteen he started getting into keys combined with programming and producing, then playing bass guitar.
He sees himself as a very soulful vocalist with a strong sense of honesty that comes through in his music.
Now you might have heard the magnificent ‘The Digital Church’ on the second Pound for Pound album released on Jazzy Sport. This is such a mellow, soulful track with a mad sexy bass. By the way…Ben Jones is the one to thank for the production (he also produced the track ‘Knowingness’).
The second track ‘Faze’ was co-produced with, fellow UK singer/producer, Matti Roots. This is a more traditional new soul track, but also very tight!
Be on the lookout for Leon’s forthcoming EP called ‘The Digital Church’ that will be dropping early 2009.
Check out Leon’s Myspace www.myspace.com/leonkingleonking for updates, tour info and future projects. Leon also features on the New Worlds compilation so be sure to check out that album too!
Thanks to http://www.straightnochaser.co.uk for the triple soul special feature and off course thanks to Leon for the wonderful music.

Stones Throw’s newest star artist Dam Funk has earned status as the “ambassador of boogie funk,” and his second teaser from his proper 2009 debut is volume 4 of the popular “Rhythm Trax” series. Dam’s expert use of analog synths and old school drum machines with a modern dancefloor aesthetic makes him one of the most exciting artists around. 8 brand new tracks in one of James Pants’ signature hand-drawn jackets… Get it on Rushhour.
Dam Funk – Chocolate
32 track CD, ram jam packed with rather splendid sideways beats! Awesome artwork too, all wrapped up in beautiful a screenprinted cardboard sleeve (lots of colour variations)…crazy limited. Def for fans of Samiyam and the more out-there beats shit.
Francis bakes his beats by the dozen. Both his previous efforts on Carte Postale were filed under the Kingfisherg moniker – which leads me to believe that Francis skived spelling in primary. This is his first as Cupp Cave. His Garbage Pail Beats are a rump-shaking, head-nodding, feet-shuffling slap in the face, one for the crate-diggers and glitch-lovers. Think nice crunchy gravel. Think big, red, 8-bit family sedan. Think wearing sunglasses sitting in the passenger seat with the window open. Think sunshine. Thump, thump, clap; Cupp Cave is guaranteed Hennessy-free. Get it on Rushhour.
