  • Reginald Omas Mamode IV – “All Together” (Release)

    Check All Together from Reginald Omas Mamode IV, which is a dope 8-track EP full of grooves. Listen and read a bit more below, and head over to Juno Records to purchase the release.

    So on the hottest day of the year I decided to sit down and actually do some work. As of now you may have realized to expect the unexpected from Intimate Friends. We will continue to roam the fields of everything soulful left and right.

    I’ve made other people buy Reginald Omas Mamode IV’s records on Five easy Pieces before because I am so in love with his Dilla style, drunken Hip Hop snippets. Now I am super happy to release this almost Album size 8 Track EP of him. All Together. We haven’t really talked about what the title means to him but for me it’s community. It’s flexing his muscles. Headnodding collages of beautiful atmospheres.

  • Jamall Bufford x Kensaye – “Freedom Is” (Release) | @JamallBufford @Kensaye1 @TheBlackOpera

    Jamall Bufford and producer Kensaye have combined for a collaborative “Freedom Is” album, which is a look into the new era of The Black Opera. Read more about said stuff below, and press play on this dope project as well. The release has features from CallMekyLA, Magestik Legend, Obio Iyoha, Madame Pepper, Artcha, and Sabira Jade.

    The Black Op: Era II continues to shine a light on the collective’s individual artists, this time around it’s co-founder Jamall Bufford’s turn to hold the torch. In collaboration with new TBO producer Kensaye, from London, he delivers Freedom Is. The album is not only a statement but also an exploration of freedom’s complexity, a question aimed at engaging the listener and provoking thought.

    Jamall Bufford stays true to himself and shows maturity and growth, exploring different topics with unconventional viewpoints and his personal insights. Once again Bufford demonstrates the versatility that has garnered the Ann Arbor, MI native worldwide recognition. Kensaye gives his take on freedom by showcasing a varied palette of sounds. His live instrumentation, electronic synths and soulful undertones prove that he cannot be pigeonholed. The genre-bending sound is the perfect ingredient to blend with Bufford’s verses. Freedom Is is Jamall Bufford and Kensaye’s idea of freedom, and at this crucial time in history, it’s their way to engage listeners to join the conversation.

  • Medasin – “Coffee” ft. Masego (Instrumental) | @MedasinMusic @UncleSego

    Medasin and Masego just dropped a new joint yesterday, titled “Coffee“, which is a freebie track. A month ago, the duo released their collaborative Pink Polo project, which I suggest you listen to if you have not. The smooth boom bap track kind of sounds like sitting a coffee shop, no? Well, it does to me. Either way, listen below and cop their latest project from this link. It’s only $6.
