Two years after the release of their critically acclaimed album Death Drive, Sole & DJ Pain 1 announce the follow-up album, “Nihilismo.” This album embodies the overlap of their music with the world of activism and journalism. Nihilismo is a revolutionary hip-hop album that challenges the nihilism of modern life, of late stage capitalism and of a world that seems to have no future.
Vinyl LP also available for pre-order.

New album from the Breathing Effect-a self-described electronic group influenced by soul, rock and jazz-whose debut album, Mars Is a Very Bad Place for Love, toes a line between traditional and turn up. The results conjure ’70s R&B as well as the contemporary Los Angeles beat scene and hip-hop. Clearly, Goss and Terrell study Pink Floyd and the Soft Machine, but it seems they dig Thundercat and Stevie Wonder, too. It’s a grand culmination for the Breathing Effect: experimental jazz with the potential for huge resonance. – Marcus J Moore, pitchfork

Repress of the debut LP from LA producer Nosaj Thing, who has produced tracks for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Busdriver, Nocando, and most recently, Chance the Rapper. L.A.’s Nosaj Thing authors the unrelenting next chapter in producer-based records that continue to up the ante. His electronic soundscapes and wild beat tectonics hit the mind and soul as they juxtapose thick, dripping electronics with sultry hip hop undertones and thought provoking ambient space.
