✨✧ IG CultureSoulful Shanghai ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2012. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the crunchiest efforts we've heard from IG Culture in awhile – a record that's filled with the cosmic beats we've always loved in his music, yet firmly grounded on earth overall! The set mixes heavy rhythms with lots of vocals and rhymes – efforts from ID 4 Windz, Mr Mensah, Julie Dexter, K Banger, Bilal Salaam, and John Robinson – all wrapped and layered together in ways that are quite different from conventional hip hop, and which really resonate with the kind of collective, collaborative spirit we love in IG's music! There's an even darker feel here than usual – which we really appreciate – and titles include "Catalog Pieces", "Futures Back", "Black Renaissance", "Core Exit", "Truth", "Tangile Dream", "Outsider", "What's Happening", "The Sankofaz Peace Ark-Extra", and "Do The Math".

✨✧ Gallow StreetGallow Street EP ... LP
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A sweet mix of brass band styles, with a very contemporary touch – all played live in the studio, with an approach that's a bit like the Hypnotic Brass Band! Like those guys, Gallow Street reach for an older tradition, but bring it strongly into the 21st Century with inventive rhythms, unusual inflections on the horns, and an overall delivery that's as urgent as it is exotic – a really unusual flavor that graces the four instrumental tunes on the EP – "Rhino", "Mountain Smoke", "Blue Monday", and "Hudmo Medley".
