Iceberg
Mello Music Group, 2017.
LP ... About October 20, 2017
Exactly the kind of record that reminds us why we love Oddisee so much – and why he continues to be one of the freshest talents around – both from a lyrical and musical perspective! At some level, the album's as understated as the look of its cover – with a stripped-down vibe ... LP, Vinyl record album
Sugar Hill/Sanctuary (UK),
LP ... About October 25, 2017
... LP, Vinyl record album
Capitol (France), 2004. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
Another strong set by the Beastie Boys – who would obviously rather put out a very good album every five or six years, than a sub par album every year or two! Arguably, the Beasties broke all the of the ground that they ever will prior to 2004, but that doesn't mean that they're done making ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grand Royal/Capitol (France), 2011. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
Hip hop lifers and genre-defiant pop art blenders The Beastie Boys deliver the Hot Sauce – either their 8th or 9th album in 25 years, depending on how you count the Mix Up instrumentals set – and it sounds to us like a return to the good times hip hop funk style-hopping that the Boys ... LP, Vinyl record album
Grand Royal/Universal (France), 1996/1998. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
Sweeeeet vinyl reissue of the long out o' print Beasties instrumental release. Even at their weakest vocal moments, we've always dug the Beastie Boys' firm committment to funky instrumental backing. Their albums are filled with lots of nice interludes, instrumentals, and backing grooves that ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1992. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
The last LP from the Ra when he was still teamed up with Eric B, and though not as great as their classic first 2 LPs, there's more than a few good cuts here: "Relax With Pep", "Casualties of War", "Know The Ledge" and "Don't Sweat The Technique" + 8 more. LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1990. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
The third album from Eric B & Rakim – classic MC/DJ duo hip hop from classic players! By this point, Rakim was firmly established as one of hip hop's greatest rhymers, and is a fine full length effort that's biggest fault is that it's not quite as spectacular as the first 2 LPs. ... LP, Vinyl record album
MCA/Universal (France), 1990. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
The great second Eric B & Rakim album – benchmark hip hop of the first order! Following up Paid In Pull, Follow The Leader completes one of the great one-two punches in hip hop history – bring in a richer, fuller, more skillfully creating sound, without sacrificing the dense, hard ... LP, Vinyl record album
4th & Broadway/Universal (France), 1986. (reissue)
LP ... About October 27, 2017
Paid In Full, indeed. Eric B & Rakim's seminal album still pays off in so many ways, and it was such a vital link between the party rockin' style of the old school and the terse, hard-hitting beats and rhymes of what was then the new school, we can't even come up with the words for the praise ... LP, Vinyl record album
Def Jam, 1997. (reissue)
LP ... On October 27, 2017
We had pretty low expectations for this project, but there are actually quite a few cuts on here that live up to the EPMD glory days.

Cassette ... On October 27, 2017
The essential early 90s classic by The Pharcyde, the group's high water mark, and one of the greatest hip hop albums of the era!

Fresh/Capitol, 1989. (reissue)
LP ... On October 27, 2017
The second album of heavy east coast funk and slow rolling rhymes from the brothers from Brentwood.

LP, Vinyl record album
Fresh/Capitol, 1988. (reissue)
LP ... On October 27, 2017
EPMD's incredible full length debut – straight up classic hip hop that gave the genre a whole new twist.
