Jill Scott‘s “From The Vault” Vol. 1 is a compilation album that drops Tuesday on Hidden Beach Recordings. Last October miss Scott left the label, breaching her six-album contract and owed millions of dollars in damages. This resulted in plans for this album series of her previously unreleased songs recorded for the label. Early sneak peak for you nu soul lovers.

So I was just cruisin’ the digital highway when I stumbled onto Kaidi Tatham‘s brand new “Kaidi’s 5ive” EP which just sounds ridiculously good. Always love the jazzy yet funky West London style Kaidi’s is on. This EP is the first in a series initiated by Jazz Re:freshed and is available for purchase via their Bandcamp page for a short time until the full digital release in September.

Now I’m not a huge Curren$y fan perse, but every now and then I hear some real proper music. Somehow I missed that “Hennesy Beach” joint with Dom Kennedy last month which is also on Spitta’s new “Verde Terrace” mixtape. Download the tape for free over via Datpiff and enjoy the music.
Ya’ll might remember we posted about these DTMD cats from the DMV right? If not peep here. Anyways…the guys are back with a brand new free joint “You” of their upcoming “Makin’ Dollas” album dropping next month via Mello Music Group. This jam reminds takes me back to the nineties when hiphop was still hiphop so download it HERE, sit back and reminisce.

Eglo Records just put up a nice new summerjam from Fatima and Funkineven ahead of their forthcoming joint EP which is currently being finished. Check out the free download of ‘Yellow Sound’ on the Eglo Records website.
I missed this new Black Einstein instrumental album last week. Nice bundle of free beats that goes by the name of “Brain’s Beats” for your listening pleasure. I’m enjoying “Real People” right now…you do the same and grab the free download!
A few days ago Median‘s “The Sender” album came out on Foreign Exchange Music. Production-wise it’s a great line up with 9th Wonder, Khrysis, Kev Brown, Black Milk, Astronote & S1. Vocally it features Phonte, Bahamadia, Sy Smith & YahZarah. All in all good recipe for a more than decent album. Personal two favorite picks would be “Special” and “Kiss The Sky”. Digital release only, so grab yours over at .
