✨✧ Big Grams (Big Boi & Phantogram)Big Grams (180 gram pressing – with download) ... LP
Epic, 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
Adventurous ATL hip hop veteran Big Boi teams up with NYC electro pop duo Phantogram as Big Grams! Big Boi has never lacked for creative ambition – his one time repuation as the straighter-laced half of Outkast sold him short back in the day – as he always had a incredible way of adapting his flow, phrasing and lyrical focus to a diverse range of production styles. Big Grams finds a nice middle ground between Phantogram's bright, melodic synth pop style and the more beat heavy needs of a dexterous MC. Sarah Barthel's lovely vocals as sweet as ever, and work suprisingly well when paired with Big Boi's distinctive rhymes. Titles include "Run For Your Life", "Lights On", "Fell In The Sun", "Put It On Her", "Goldmine Junkie", "Born To Shine" with Run The Jewels and "Drum Machine" with Skrillex. LP, Vinyl record album

Dam-FunkInvite The Light ... CD
Stones Throw, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99 12.99
Dam Funk does it again – really blowing us away with his crispy fresh version of funk – one that's a perfect fusion of old school modes from the 70s and 80s, and some of the more cosmic touches of the current century! The approach uses lots of splash on the keyboards and beats – so that everything bristles with this electric energy – even the vocals, which have a way of settling down right next to everything else, but without any too-stiff vocoded modes. And Dam Funk doesn't just do it alone – but invites in some great help here – including Q-Tip and Snoop Dogg on rhymes, plus old school funk legends Leon Sylvers III and Junie Morrison. Titles include "Junie's Transmission", "Virtuous Progression", "Glyde 2Nyte", "OBE", "Missing U", "I'm Just Tryin To Survive", "The Hunt & Murder Of Lucifer", "Surveillance Escape", and "Somewhere Someday".

DJ CamMiami Vice ... LP
Inflamable (France), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
DJ Cam pays tribute to the great moment of Miami Vice in the 80s – but with a sound that's definitely 21st Century all the way through! The music here is mostly composed by Cam – supposedly in Miami – and the whole thing does feel like some revised soundtrack for the famous show, but set in a whole new milieu – from the leadoff track, which samples and snips bits from the original program – to instrumentals which cascade nicely with a sun-drenched, languorous version of hip hop instrumentals. There's a few vocal tracks – two with MC Eiht, one with Earl Davis – and titles include "Welcome To Little Haiti", "Tubbs Theme", "Crockett's Theme", "Move That Dope", "Music To Drive By", "Weather Underground", and "In The Air Tonight".

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die ... LP
Linear Labs, 2013. New Copy ... $18.99 20.98
Ghostface Killah and Adrian Younge team up for this most intriguing artist and producer/composer collaboration – one with a promising concept and they deliver in full – shadowboxing their way to a knockout! On the mic tip, Ghostface is in his comfort zone – spitting lyrics laced with martial arts, mafia and supernatural imagery – and doing so with a furious flow and peak precision. Adrian Younge and his Venice Dawn group lay down the sounds – with dusty soul and funk, naturally – but what really pushes this one to a superior level are the unpredictable and ingenious nods to 70s Italian film scores, particularly in the giallo genre. Spooky, echoey keyboards and occasional angelic female backing vocals elevate the vibe and balance the grit. 12 tracks and no filler: "Beware The Stare", "Rise Of The Black Suits", "I Declare War" with Masta Killa, "Blood On The Cobblestones" with U-God & Inspectah Deck, "Rise Of The Ghostface Killah", "Murder Spree" with U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck and Killa Sin, "Enemies Around Me" with William Hart of the Delfonics, "The Sure Shot (Parts 1 And 2)", "Twelve Reasons To Die" and more.

Ghostface Killah & Adrian YoungeTwelve Reasons To Die 2 ... LP
Linear Labs, 2015. New Copy ... $21.99 24.98
A superior sequel to Ghostface Killah & Adrian Younge's Twelve Reasons To Die saga – cementing the mid teens Ghostface creative resurgence in a major way – with some of the finest production work by Younge to date! It's a stunning reminder of how sharp Ghostface can be this late in the game when he's really feeling it, and he's a gracious host here, too – collaborating with Raekwon on the mic throughout the record, even featuring some moody narration by RZA – and seriously impressive guest appearances by Scarab, Lyrics Born, Chino XL and Bilal. There's a real mythology to the project, with a loose, but genuinely compelling narrative arc – combining prime Wu school crime noir rhymes and soundtrack funk production inspired by giallo, Blacksploitation and Younge's own distinct genius. Includes "Powerful One", "Daily News", "Return Of The Savage" with Raekwon & RZA, ,"Death's Invitation" with Scarab, Lyrics Born and Chino XL, "King Of New York", "Let The Record Spin" and "Blackout" with Raekwon, "Resurrection Morning" with Raekwon and Bilal and "Life's A Rebirth" with RZA.

InternetEgo Death ... CD
Columbia, 2015. New Copy ... $11.99
Pure wonderfulness from Internet – a group who seem to bound forward strongly with each new release! These guys are easily one of the most compelling mainstream soul acts we can think of – still very lean, and working with an indie-level vibe – but also able to focus in on hooks and the sorts of catchy elements that are bound to make the group huge in coming years! There's a crispy, crackling sound in the rhythms all the way through – but never in a too-abstract level, as some more sci-fi oriented artists can hit – and although the record features guest work from Janelle Monae, Tyler The Creator, and a few other stars – we actually love the group's own core performances the best. Titles include "Get Away", "Under Control", "Gabby", "Go With It", "Girl", "Special Affair", "Something's Missing", "Partners In Crime (part 3)", and "Penthouse Cloud". (Neo Soul, Hip Hop) CD
