Desperate times call for some sonic therapy. We are plagued by a barrage of stressful thoughts and ideas on a constant basis, listening to a good beat tape sans lyrics is a must-do exercise, consider it a pressure release valve. This tape from Berkeley based producer, Ambiguous Sounds, fits the description, or prescription if you will. There is a mixture of 90′s hip hop themed instrumentals mixed in with some low-key jazzy joints (I could see Black Thought killing this stuff), this is elevator music for dope elevators. The project is self described as “inspired by lust lost & loneliness, attempted different styles to keep folkz interested, & i kept the beats nice & short for all the ADD folkz.” Sign me up.
My favorite tracks are the following: catch22, sheets and skwert. Hit the pharmacy, download here.
The Infiniti is making weird noises, and I done spent too much money this damn month already. But sometimes you have to spend even when that means Top Ramen later. Lutan Fyah is arguably the hottest name in dancehall music, I’m expecting a big big show. Stay tuned for footage, you know it will be HD, and fiyah. Check him out at Reggae Rising last year, we took some footage (below).
I know absolutely nothing about this kid, but you know when you get that feeling in your gut that someone is going to blow? That’s how I feel about Johaz. Mind you, that’s how I feel about Fashawn as well, so maybe it’s an Exile thing. Johaz is working on a group project with Exile called Dag Savage, peep Exile’s interview with DubCNN to read his thoughts on it, maybe your gut will start palpitating too.
