Fill In The Blank

a propos: 
Before any of the excitement could die down, Kev Brown hasn’t let off the gas. In less than 2 months after his long awaited and critically acclaimed Homework album, the latest release entitled Fill in the Blank is nothing short of the perfect surprise for the hip-hop world. In the famous words of Kev, this is just “another classic joint!”. Classics are synonymous with his legacy and if you release 2 classic albums back to back in under 90 days, not only is your work ethic setting you apart from your contemporaries, but the talent and quality of your product is the real standout. In the vein of Homework, Fill in the Blank continues the same formula of pairing sporadic beats and raps in an unorthodox, yet seamless presentation. The two projects may share similarities, but as an artist, Kev Brown is all about evolution. The mixing is tighter, the beats are bolder and his rapping is more aggressive. Some may observe that this album is more polished than the previous, but “the grit” he is known for is still prominently audible. As a vocalist, Kev has found a great balance of being smooth, concise, unapologetic and passionate with his honesty, love for the craft and ?ashes of dry humor. Making a guest appearance as the in house DJ, Damu the Fudgemunk exclusively handles all of the scratching. The album may be called Fill in the Blank, but the audience will state the obvious. At 20 tracks, there’s no mystery in Kev Brown’s creativity or his skills as producer/rapper as he blends vocal tracks with instrumental pieces and even throws in a few complimentary interludes. This is what the fans want. Collecting cosigns from Large Professor, Diamond D and even Questlove from the legendary Roots was seen on social media praising Kev’s recent output. Dr. Dre’s Pharmacy show on Beats Radio recently included some new Kev joints in their popular playlists / programs too. Also notable is the fact that Brown is just returning home from a European tour in which he used the tour dates to announce the surprise release of Fill in the Blank. Responding to a frenzy of hype, Redefnition Records proudly designed and packaged the new album on black vinyl printed with full color artwork. The cover art features images of the artist in his hometown neighborhood of Palmer Park made famous by boxer Sugar Ray Leonard and located in Landover, Maryland. While listeners have been instructed to Fill in the Blank, Kev’s agenda is to fll up the year with continuous projects.

Minneapolis

auteur:

photo: 
a propos: 
Landover, Maryland's Kev Brown continues his shockwave of new music with his 4th vinyl release of 2018. From carrying PG County on his back and arguably saving hip hop with his solo albums Homework and Fill in the Blank, the producer/MC made sure the world knows who he is. Never a dull moment in his timeline, he introduced a series of beat tapes with his "Delve into Classic Moog" as the first. The latest sees Kev Brown leaving the east coast to sample the sights and sounds in the midwest, specifically Minneapolis, Minnesota. Aptly titled, The Minneapolis Project, it is 100% instrumental and proves to be a surprising yet adventurous direction in his ongoing series. With such a strong legacy spearheaded by "You know who: The Artist" himself, Kev took inspiration from the whole Minneapolis scene and the results are nothing short of brilliant. One may ask why a producer like Brown known for his own trademark sound would venture into someone else's bag. The answer is pretty simple. A good friend, DJ Iran nominated Kev with the challenge of fusing the iconic 80's era Minneapolis grooves into the Kev Brown universe. To commemorate the special occasion, this rare moment is captured on vinyl as part of Black Friday RSD 2018. Limited quantities are available and based on the performance of Kev's previous titles, don't expect vinyl copies of this album to sit around. While supplies last.

Baker's Dozen

auteur:

photo: 
a propos: 
When I finished school in 1999 I didn’t really know what to do with my life. I had just bought my first computer and was killing time by playing games and smoking weed. One day an old friend came by and brought a cracked version of Sonic Foundry Acid. He said: ‘You can make music with this software!’ Of course back then I didn’t realize it, but this was a life changing moment for me. I used this music program for many many years - 17 years to be exact. It became the tool that enabled me to express myself creatively and to do what I love the most: making beats. Both my setup and my creative process have changed a bit since then, but basically it’s the same procedure as back in the day. It usually starts with a few chords, a nice rhythmic loop and some drum bits. The rest happens by itself. I remember visiting the Fat Beats store in New York City in 2004. I was a massive fan. To finally enter the holy halls was a huge deal for me. I was was soaking up the atmosphere dreaming about a future as a producer. Who would have thought that I would ever put out a record with these guys! I feel honored to be part of the Bakers Dozen series and its outstanding list of producers. -SUFF DADDY

Examples Vol 2

auteur:

photo: 
a propos: 
We head into the final quarter of the year with a very welcome return to First Word from London producer, musician, engineer and DJ, Eric Lau. Following on from his acclaimed early 2017 album, 'Examples', we proudly present the second volume - another delectable 28-track beats opus.'Examples Volume Two' is Eric's fourth instrumental album, and ably continues where he left off with an assortment of sonics, ranging through hip hop, jazz, funk, soul & Brazilian beats. An elaborate sketchpad of ideas and grooves, this again gives a taste of the genius production skills of 'The Commissioner', Mr. Lau.A mixdown perfectionist, his services have been drafted into service on a number of albums over the past few years, including Yussef Kamaal's 'Black Focus', Mansur Brown's 'Shiroi', The Playlist's 'Chasing Goosebumps', DJ Jazzy Jeff's 'M3', Masego's 'Lady Lady', and Kaidi Tatham's 'It's A World Before You', released on First Word recently. It's through these recent collaborations that we have a few unique ingredients peppered through this project, the track 'Jeff's Piano' is based on a sample taken from Eric's iPhone, capturing a moment when Kaidi was teaching Masego a few chords at Jeff's studio. Both integral players to the Playlist Retreat, Eric and Kaidi have also provided remix duties for Moonchild, Omar and Leon Ware, and Kaidi Kat also lends his key playing talents to a few tracks here.Eric has also worked as a producer for artists like Oddisee, Guilty Simpson, Dego, Tawiah, Rahel and Fatima, whilst his DJ skills have seen him tour the globe with luminaries such as Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper and Questlove. He's received props over the years from tastemakers across the world, including Rich Medina, 9th Wonder, Bobbito, Dam Funk, Phonte, Gilles Peterson, James Poyser (The Roots) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest).His previous outings for First Word pre 'Examples' were as part of the Record Store Day beat-challenge trilogy, along with Tall Black Guy, Kidkanevil and Mr. Thing. Additionally to four instrumental LPs, he released his debut-album 'New Territories' on Ubiquity a decade ago, as well as the acclaimed 2013 sophomore album, 'One Of Many'.This latest set of 'Examples' is available on all digital services and regular black vinyl, as well as a limited edition blue vinyl version. Essential music for your mind, body and soul.

Songs Of Experience

photo: 
a propos: 
Audiophile reissue, lacquered directly from Axelrod’s original EQ’ed master tapes at Capitol Records by Ron McMaster, housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket “Songs of Experience was supposed to have a different feel than Song of Innocence. You see, music is a great outlet. And regardless of what the titles say, and as close as I wanted it to be to William Blake, what was going on in my life took precedence.” – David Axelrod Songs of Experience is visionary composer/arranger/producer David Axelrod’s second album, it was recorded after the death of his beloved son Scott. Experience is an ominous affair, an album concerned with mortality and spirituality – the solitary, pastoral musings of William Blake set to the urban bombast of a full Los Angeles orchestra, with Wrecking Crew vets grounding the proceedings with dark funk. This is the next Now-Again issue in a series of reissues centered around Axelrod’s Capitol Trilogy – Song of Innocence, Songs of Experience and Earth Rot – which will see release through 2018. Contains oversized, 28 page booklet that delves into Axelrod’s incredible life and music, replete with never before published photos and an interview with Axelrod by Eothen Alapatt and Wax Poetics’ Brian Digenti. “There are very few people who see the Grand Picture of the Universe and understand the Nothingness that it all comes from. There are even fewer who can express these ideas through music - David could do it all.” – T-Ray

MoBlack Sampler Vol. 3

photo: 
a propos: 
The no. 1 afro house label MoBlack Records offers you four timeless tracks for their third sampler e.p. First up, Italian duo Armonica and South African songstress Toshi have their incredible track ‘Ngeke’ remixed into a deeply hypnotising, glitched out roller by Andhim. Armonica then take on Dele Sosimi’s ‘Turbulent Times’ reworking the afrobeat flavours into a swelling, synthesised house number filled to the brim with emotion.On the B side FatouMata & Juan remix Mabiisi’s ‘King’ into a deep and brooding techno track with a darker tinge to it. The final slot on this MoBlack sampler comes in the form of Christos Fourkis’ – ‘Doumasi’ that captivates with its use of African vocal samples behind percussive rhythms, mesmerising marimbas and sweeping pads.

The Cape

photo: 
a propos: 
Sven Atterton‘s much anticipated follow up to ‘The Cove’, thematically named ‘The Cape’, drops on his newly formed Cruise Club Records. Anyone that’s experienced the wonder of Sven live, is well aware of the prowess and apparent effortlessness he possesses on stage. As at home laying it down on a synth, as he is tearing it up on the bass, ‘The Cape’ showcases modern synth boogie as good as anyone at present.Pick any track from the album and prepare to blown away by Sven’s skills both as a multi-instrumentalist and as an accomplished producer. Flexing those 80’s LinnDrum hits, getting spiritual on the keys, whilst layering full-frontal bass and dreamy pads – ‘The Cape’ is a nod to the past, whilst re-imagining it for the modern age. Throughout, Sven has captured and replicated those ‘80s synth funk sounds down to a tee - weighty, analogue slickness with added slap bass in the place.A yearly regular at Gottwood for Ruffy’s lab and championed by the likes of Artwork, Charlie Bones and Stamp The Wax, Sven is becoming a force to be reckoned with. And considering the cost Sven’s debut album now goes for on Discogs, ‘The Cape’ is one to snap up on sight.
