Artifacts - 'APB (All Points Bulletin)' 10
Sep 16, 2014: Seattle's Def Dee deftly handles the production duties on Side-A and Germany's Klaus Layer runs the remix on the flip side, but please understand: this is a "Nu Jeruz" affair. The music takes on an organic feel and leaves the listener feeling like Tame and El haven't missed a beat. Rounding out the north NJ connection is K-Def, who lends his mastering prowess to the project.
Cassette also shipping.
Busta Rhymes - 'The Coming' (Re-Issue) Vinyl LP Pre-Order
Sep 16, 2014: Right out the gate Busta dropped his classic debut single "Woo Hah!!" that made it abundantly clear he was to be mentioned among Hip Hop's greatest solo artists. The energy and originality packed on that one song set a tone for the album that displays Busta's raw talent and ability to bend words with his ever rambunctious flow. Songs such as "Everything Remains Raw", "Abandon Ship", and "Still Shining" all rise above as The Coming's stand out tracks but it's really "ill Vibe" that is the albums crown jewel moment. Busta sounds right at home over this J Dilla beat trading verses with his Native Tongue cohort Q-Tip.
CD also available.
Diamond District - 'March On Washington' Vinyl Pre-Order
Sep 16, 2014: The D.C. Voltron of Oddisee, yU, and X.O. dusted off and revitalized a sound once consigned to the catacombs. Five years after their first release, the holy trinity has returned with March on Washington. The truths remain timeless. Wisdom over rhythm. Slang turned into testament.

Apollo B. & Ras Kass - 'Blasphemy' Splatter Vinyl Pre-Order
Sep 15, 2014: This album displays Apollo Brown & Ras Kass' undeniable synergy. Their sacred writ is the same, their blasphemy for those who want to think as they nod to the rhythm. When Ras Kass crucifies supposed facts over Apollo's beats, it's clear he is the West Coast's preeminent philosopher. When Apollo's blaring suites soothe your soul, it's an ontological fact that he ranks among the best producers in the game. With Blasphemy, the duo has delivers the truth.
