  • Drew Dave “SynthBASED” Release | @DrewliusDave

    Mello Music Group put out Drew Dave‘s latest full-length instrumental project, titled SyntheBASED, earlier this week. Check the dopeness below, and you can purchase for close to $8 from Bandcamp.

    Jazzy piano loops, afrobeat percussion, breakbeat exoticism, and bounce make up Drew Dave “SynthBASED,” an instrumental ride. Residing in the crux of vintage and modern techniques is Drew Dave, who’s faithful to the soul that lives in his hardware, but maintains forward vision for live instrumentation and midi-synths on his latest project. Drew Dave has doodled over the orginal syllabi of Hiphop instrumentalism, creating ornate embellishments of prerequisite texts. Drew Dave’s aspirations for musicality over straight beats, his the ability to deliver bangers that loop gravelly roars, and his smooth crisp production lead listeners on a rhapsodic journey. The new album, SynthBASED, arrives February 24th.

  • Ruff Draft “Illusion Fracture” Release | @RUFF_DRAFT @ALPHAPUP

    Check out this dope project from beatsmith Ruff Draft, a 14-track project released by Alpha Pup.

    Explore the appealing juxtaposition and pure beats of Illusion Fracture, the new release by Ruff Draft. Fusing his unique, non-nonsense approach into the Alpha Pup space-time continuum, Ruff Draft creates an appealing interplay of light and dark; high and low; warm soul and cold space.

    There’s a certain elegance to Ruff Draft’s sound, an effortless blend of sonorous melodies on top of barbarian beats. Inspired by anime and the sci-fi soundscapes of the 1980s, Illusion Fracture translates the feel of the decade into a modern texture.

    “Overt Miracles/Beliefs (feat. GoYama)” launches the album with a captivating playground of jazzy beats and cosmic resonance. Heavy with purpose yet refined in melody, “Curry and Cookies (feat. Mr. Carmack)” is head-nod magic, almost meditative.

    Layering porcelain vocals over twilight synths, “Foes and Folly (feat. Swoonz)” has the dreamy vibe of an otherworldly lullaby. “Messages” closes the sound feast with a soul classic beats that shuffle and stutter their way between complexity and raw simplicity.

    Tilt your head back, close your eyes and listen.

  • Fashawn “The Ecology” Release | @Fashawn @ExileRadio

    Fresno, CA’s Fashawn just recently released his long-awaited The Ecology album with Mass Appeal, and it’s really dope. The project, with production handled mostly from Exile, also has features and production Alchemist, Nas, Beewirks, DJ Khalil, Alow Blacc, Dom Kennedy, Busta Rhymes, and others. You can purchase this project now on Vinyl or from iTunes.

    The Ecology is the upcoming second studio album by American hip hop recording artist Fashawn. The album is currently scheduled to be released on September 30, 2014 by Nas’ Mass Appeal Records. The album’s production, similar to his debut album Boy Meets World (2009), will be handled primarily by his longtime collaborator and record producer Exile. In 2014, Fashawn signed a recording contract with Nas’ new label Mass Appeal Records for the distribution of the album.

    The title and concept of the album entails exploring the “ecology” of one’s environment: the people, objects, and events surrounding one’s life, the things that provoke human behavior, how individual choices lead to different paths, and how everyone and everything is ultimately interconnected.
