D-Styles on Serato

This past spring and summer, Serato and Rane worked together to bring the DJ community the SixtyOne andSixtyTwo mixer(s).  And with the World Famous Beat Junkies representing their products, D-Styles did a little showcase video for them on youtube.

A Quest To The Pharcyde

Like The Pharcyde?  Like A Tribe Called Quest?  If so, check out this mash up from Amerigo Gazawy from Gummy Soul.  What I like about this “mix tape” was the fact that this dude took his time to blend the instrumentals of Tribe’s various works with Pharcyde’s a capella’s from “A Bizarre Ride From The Pharcyde.”

Under The Stares

This past fall, Dumbfoundead released his sophomore album, “Under The Stares.”  A more laid back album than his last one, this album shows the growth and maturity of Dumbfoundead’s style.  His range on beats have evolved as well.  Some tracks get into the dirty grimy beats you hear on the radio, “SCRAM,” to some electro sounding beats, “10 Ronds” and “It’s Not You.”  But overall, Dumbfoundead is known for the smoothness of his rhymes, as heard on the track “Growing Young” (shown below).

Until The Quiet Comes

Group(image taken from http://flying-lotus.com)

Since I’ve been gone for a while doesn’t mean I stopped listening to good music.  “Until The Quiet Comes” dropped back in late September and early October and it’s a good album.  It’s a step above “Cosmogramma” and has a mixture of EDM, experimental, new wave jazz and hip hop all rolled into one.  Not a jazz/hip hop fusion of “Cosmogramma,” but still enjoyable.  Here’s some of my favorite tracks:
