This is something you should seriously consider purchasing. San Diego born Alvin Fenner is NeatBeats. Fenner has been busy perfecting this debut album for some time now but it sounds like the wait has been well worth it; 'Cosmic Surgery' is an astonishingly emotive album which is unbelievable in both it's ambition and execution.
It's due out September 1st
'I hope I think of bike riding when I'm dying' is the closing track and sounds like a jazz fueled time machine. It is unique to the album like every track on Cosmic Surgery manages to be, without hindering the continuity of the overall album.

Time to get excited.
MyHollowDrum veteran Bahwee has released, yet another, killer free album. Featuring 19 tracks, with varying styles of beats throughout them all, this album brings full release value, for no cash at all. The track Hold Me Tight brings the fantastic good vibe, mellow feel that Bahwee can nail like a champ. With chopped samples, light synths, and head bobbing percussion, it is a definite highlight of the album. Other tracks, such as Mmhmm and The 80s, let us know that he isn't afraid of trying something new. Mmhmm shows a more funk, dance side, while The 80s shows a simplistic 80s electronic side.
Download the album here.
Earl Sweatshirt might only be 17 years of age, but he happens to have the lyrical prowess of a long time emcee. His debut studio album, Earl, more than shows what this young cat is capable of. The title track, Earl, brings back the dying dark rap style that is missing nowadays. From decomposing bodies, to drugging your drink for the hell of it, he shows no mercy when it comes to delivering his message.
Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a real way to get his album, seeing that the official release has been taken off the internet.
In the mean time, here is the link to his collective's blog OFWGKTA.
You might get lucky. :)

The title track, Alligator Snaps, flows with a more dance style of beat that is new to eLan's repertoire.

The Clubhouse and b l a h n k e t are over the moon with excitement in welcoming a living legend to perform in our part of the world. Ann Arbor native, Samiyam (born Sam Baker) moved to Los Angeles in 2006. In his short time out West, he has become one of the city's most progressive and recognized producers, a man who has spearheaded the revival of interest in instrumental hip-hop music over the last few years. Baker's Rap Beats Vol.1 collection was the very first release on Brainfeeder. He has also collaborated with old friend Flying Lotus as Flyamsam as well as having releases on Hyperdub and Poo-Bah records.
"The intellectual offspring of David Cronenberg and the RZA, but specially touched by Michael Jackson." - LA Record
"Hip Hop beats filled with snippets of Soul, Funk, 70's Italian horror flick soundtracks, Nintendo bonus level music, and 90's Hip Hop. Somehow, with this much content, the beats still manage to sound gloriously minimal and disjointed." - Dazed and Confused
"Warped out and offbeat, his beats are a piece of art."- Jneiro Jarel (Shape Of Broad Minds, Lex Records)
INFORMATION ON TICKETING + SUPPORTING ACTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.

One of the best albums from 2010, Fitz Ambro$e's PDISO returns with a few new styles.
With remixes by eLan, Mndsgn, Dibiase, Ahnnu, and Ichiro_, this remix album is one of the strongest in recent memory. eLan brings the usual lo-fi 80s off-beat heat, and Ichiro_ shows that he can run a track with the best of them. Dibiase's remix shows why he was the winner of the 2010 Los Angeles Red Bull Big Tune Battle, with heavy percussion and his usual knack for the dirty, yet clean mixing style.
Don't pass up on this one, its a monster.
Download it here.
