Moka Only  & Chief - Mess Around (Elaquent Remix)

The Crickets invasion continues! Moka Only & Chief’s recently released collaborative album “Crickets” gets remixed by the cream of the cream of producers, both confirmed and upcoming.

Part 1 of the Crickets Remixes series features the excellent upcoming producer hailing from Canada, Elaquent, 4Hero’s beat legend Marc Mac, deft technician oscillating comfortably between various music scenes Jules Chaz, and our very own Feelin’ music young electronic wizards Jazzo & Melodiesinfonie.

From hip-hop beats to more deconstructed electronic reworks, this first remix Ep proudly assembles a musical diversity that’s seldom seen and even more rarely both coherent and of quality.

ALBUM: Jéan P x LAKIM - Opposites Attract

“Opposites Attract” is the collaborative effort between Ohio emcee Jèan P & Virginia producer LAKIM.
The meaning behind “Opposites Attract” is inspired by Jèan P & LAKIM being from two different area codes, the producer versus the emcee but also bringing great music to “attract” the listeners.
The album features guest appearances from G-Scott and Trade Voorhees.
With soulful and hard hitting production as well as lyricism and creative concepts at its finest, Opposites Attract is an album that will stand the test of time and soon to be highly acclaimed amongst all who enjoy quality and wholesome hip hop.

FREENESS: Deft - Before Vol. 1 (UK)

Deft - A Smile Is

Deft - Too Close

Deft - Adventure Time (Quest)

I met Deft when the W.A.T. booked me to play a gig in Brighton during the summer (Shout outs to the whole crew). Everybody was telling me this guy was one of the illest producers in the area and I should check him out. Now it’s my turn to get some more people to pay attention to this cat. This a beautiful instrumental project from Deft and is definitely not your standard boom bap rhythms but still has some what of a Hip Hop feel to it. This one is definitely an essential download and has been on heavy rotation in my whip.
