Paul White

New full length "Rapping with Paul White" out today on One Handed Music. Check 'One of Life's Pleasures' and the promotional single 'Trust' featuring Guilty Simpson below. A lot of collaborations on vocals for this one making for a few flaws and a huge change in direction from the dusty "Paul White and the Purple Brain". Still a lot to enjoy for the beat miners; including a number of instrumental tracks and the trademark hazy concoction of samples throughout.

Balam Acab

Hugely anticipated debut full length "Wander / Wonder" out August 29th on TriAngle from American producer Balam Acab. Psychedelic yet comforting melodies wrap around field recordings, fractured vocal fragments and crackle to form a rich listen from start to finish. Can't wait to hear this on vinyl.

"Bad Vibes" - new full length release from beat crafter Shlohmo out today on Friends of Friends. Really been looking forward to this one for a while as producer Henry Laufer drifts into a more melancholic spin on experimental hip hop...dropping out of college to complete the album but placing him at the forefront of a new wave of West Coast talent.

Check the promo video "The Neighborhood" below for a truly inspiring insight into the young producer's background.
