Our man in Cologne Hubert Daviz (featured on both Beatnicks Volumes)
has been abandoning daylight lately and got acquainted with his fresh off the ebay
shelve MPC2500 + MicroKorg, starting to gear up.
 
The result of his first month with the new toys and a slab of dusty vinyl
is what we have here, our first Beatnicks Tape (nostalgia we like, sometimes).
12 deeep instrumental beat journeys that sound ohso promising considering the
fact he entirely produced on equipment he was yet unfamiliar with. Someone to watch out forfor sure,  listen don..t sleep  Beatnicks

Detroit’s Invincible, one of the best MC’s you’ve been ignoring just dropped her debut album Shapeshifters.

The album, which is available directly from Invincible’s own independent website and imprint, will surprise many who continue to pigeon-hole female or political hip-hop. If nothing else, this is good music. Invincible approaches every subject, flow and concept with a focused intensity that is missing from most music period. andres reyes
