Illien Rosewell x Logic Marselis – Supreme Being 2

Souleance – Tribute To Galt MacDermot
Fulgeance and DJ Soulist team at the top of 2019 with a tribute to the recently departed writer, composer, and pianist Galt MacDermot.
A genius, a maestro, already sampled by big names. But we had to do something around this Sir who recently passed away. From “The Nucleus”, the musical “Two Gentleman of Verona”, the unfamous “Boogie Man” & of course “Shapes Of Rythm” we tried to make a journey through the world of McDarmot. Hope you’ll have a nice trip with us.RIP Galt MacDarmot.
Space Monk – 5683
Space Monk explores the intersections of love, fear, and vulnerability with his late-2018 offering 5683.
The project centers around love and the fear of love, which turns out to be a fear of vulnerability. And out of fear you mask your expression, so that you won’t experience hurt. But who’s gonna save you from the hurt of too late? No juice flows while there is cap, likewise, no love flows while there is mask.
Wing Zero – Sakura
Founding member of West Coast collective Endless Waltz, Wing Zero steps out on his own with the Sakura EP inspired by his travels in Japan.
King Most – Sharing Is Caring (Redirections EP)
King Most follows the Redirection Collection with Sharing Is Caring (Redirections EP) featuring reworks of Prodigy, Beyoncé, Cutty Ranks, and Cherelle x Alexander O’Neal.
Big Kahuna OG x Fly Anakin – Big Fly 3
Big Kahuna OG and Fly Anakin are back at it on behalf of the Mutant Academy with the release of Big Fly 3.
Section Leaders – Prelude

prel·ude · noun
1. an action/event serving as an intro to something more important.
2. an introductory piece of music; the first movement of a suite.
Alcoda – No Sight No Sound
Houston’s own Alcoda marks the release of his fifth full-length album with the arrival of the lo-fi experience No Sight No Sound.
Loop.Holes – Loopstrumentals
The Loopstrumentals compilation from the Loop.Holes crew is a retrospective that captures some of their best joints.
Loopstrumentals is a selection of their works from the past decade. Some tracks root back to the early soundcloud daze, where the whole instrumental hip hop reneissance started, some tracks are freshly mixed in their lab. Either way, these guys have always been a huge inspiration to the blunt shelter crew, so releasing this gem feels completely unreal and elevating. Just like their beats. Enjoy 🙂
Nimzo – Waves, Vibes and Frequencies
Nimzo drops a nod to the dusty loops and jazz samples of Golden Era hip-hop titled Waves, Vibes and Frequencies.
