Heavy Rotation: 2 Really Dope LP's That Need Your Attention...

Word is born 2015 is almost out of the gate and I just wanted to do a quick post on 2 albums that are on heavy rotation as of late...




The first one is the superb debut album from Toronto, Canada Hip Hop duo, Still Waters and Best Kep aka Full Circle 

Infinite Edges is chock full of ill Jazz, Funk and Soul samples and head nodding classic breaks that actually sound fresh and the whole album sounds like a well produced lost 90's classic.

Check the video for "Raw Feelin" below

The second album is the dope and amusing Pimp themed album from Long Island's Smoovth (Tha Connection) and producer Giallo Point (Crate Divizion) which again is dripped in mid 90's sounding production and features Hus Kingpin, Rozewood, El Ay, Asia Jackson and Sean Rosati.



Fat shout out to Ryks Dah-K-Myst

Both albums come highly recommended, so do yourself and your ears a favour.

Thank you to all of my readers of CRDS 
Have a great and safe New Years and I will see you in 2015.

Happy Bornday Mix for Tyshawn-December 2014

Peace (Christmas) Party People...Here is a little birthday compilation I put together for my good Friend Tyshawn who is a really good kid that always has a smile on his face, is full of positive energy and doesn't let nasty, no life having SOB's get him down, I have mad respect for Tyshawn and he is a true Hip Hop head in every sense...this compilation is 20 tracks deep and a mixture of a little new but mostly old (92-97)...





















I also want to send a fat shout out to dope producer Steven M aka Monplacebo and Fats Eardrum who has always supplied me with ill music and has not had an easy time lately, you are often in my thoughts Fats...and also a fat shout out An Ni and to my crew in the Reel To Real Hip Hop group at Facebook.

enjoy and remember  to make like the late, great Dilla Dawg and TURN IT UP!!!

Have a great and safe Holiday season and I will see you in 2015 with more posts, a look back at the dopest of 2014 and we will celebrate 20 years of 1995 which was another superb year in 90's Hip Hop.
