Pete Rock

Shouts to Nick for telling me about these video sessions. Crazy.

I hit the studio a few days ago with NY native 'Emskee', most know as the mc for a group called the 'Good People'. We met a while ago after seeing him DJ at the local bar, Black Betty's down the street from my apartment in Brooklyn. After realizing our similar tastes in music, it seemed only natural to start making music together.

For a quick intro, check the video below for 'These Times' that he recorded as the 'Good People' back in 07.

Pete Philly & Perquisite

I know it's an old track, but these guys were way ahead of their time. How many hip hop producers do you know that can play the cello?! They have a wicked new album called 'Mystery Repeats', which seems to be doing really well in Europe, judging from their packed live shows.


reflection eternal

Seeing this video makes me feel good about music again. It's so simple and it acts like a soundtrack to thoughts. It seems like all Japanese beat-makers have an impeccable taste for jazzy instrumental hip hop.
