Yosaku - Rehashed

Photobucket

Yosaku - Valdez



Just found this new album by California producer Yosaku, released on DJ Tonk's Milkdipper label in late 2009. I hope this gets some awareness outside of Japan, because this album is fresh! The beats are mostly edits of 70's brazilian samba/funk/soul tunes, and are perfect for a summer afternoon. The album is available now on CD and for digital download through itunes.

Rockafella

My man Fella Vaughn just sent over this crazy beat tape of re-edits and instrumentals, in collaboration with Tobrock, based on samples from the funk, boogie and italo disco era. This album is just as much suited to a car stereo as it is to a banging club sound system!

Click the link below and download the whole thing for free.

Rockafella play at the next HiHat Club gig in Berlin, Germany on April 2nd.
Watch out for more stuff to come from these guys...

Daybreak



Here's a demo of a new track by us called 'Daybreak'. An instrumental track that was made with the vision of relaxing on a tropical beach.

Hocus Pocus - 16 Pieces



Both Nick and I agree that this is the most highly anticipated album we've come across in a long time. French hop hop/jazz/soul outfit 'Hocus Pocus' plan to release their new LP called '16 Pieces' very soon, and from what I've heard so far it looks to be incredible. Their sound is the perfect balance between laid back chords and knocking beats, and it doesn't bother me at all that 20Syl's rhymes are in French, because the music is just so melodic. I'm considering traveling to France just to see these guys perform live!!

Dam-Funk Advice @ RBMA



This is probably the best advice i've heard from anyone in the music industry! Dam-Funk sets is straight for all those producers who make 'beats' instead of actual 'songs'.

What You Want + Surf

New song 'What You Want ft. Raashan Ahmad was recently used as the backdrop to a local junior surfing comp filmed at Trigg beach. Our music has always been made with the vision of playing it on a summer afternoon, and it's really cool to see it alongside images of Australian surf culture.

Go here to check it out: http://vimeo.com/9850340

Big ups to Daz from Spektrum for promoting our music to the surf community!
