Take - Only Mountain: The Remixes

"Only Mountain: The Remixes features sixteen fresh flips of the tracks of Only Mountain, the standout 2010 full-length album from Alpha Pup producer Take. A diverse and very talented cast of artists re-sling Take's work into new tunes that bubble, break and curve, displaying a brilliant spectrum of sounds from some of the best in the bent world of beats."

Bibio - Mind Bokeh

"Taking his name from a fly his father used on fishing trips in his childhood, Stephen Wilkinson, aka Bibio has moved swiftly up through the gears, from his 2005 debut ‘Fi’, in which he combined acoustic guitar and tape loops, home and field recordings to create a wistful masterpiece that was at once organic and processed. “A lot of those things are still in my work now but I’m looking to move away from that,” says Bibio. “I don’t simply want to be repeating myself.”

Those already familiar with Bibio for his discography of great albums will experience what Bibio describes as a “balance of the familiar and the non-familiar” on Mind Bokeh."

VA - Mad Hop C4L

"Feel the love vibration and heart-beats in each track "

Daedelus - Bespoke

"Bespoke is defined as “a term employed to mean an item custom-made to measure.” Darlington explains that “I not only intended it as a reflection of the LP itself, but also an outlook on life.” It’s Daedelus’ way of stating that it’s possible to grow and flourish as a musician without settling for the drab factory pre-sets of genre."

Nosaj Thing - Live @ Music Hall Of Williamsburg

Copyright Criminals

"Long before people began posting their homemade video mashups on the Web, hip-hop musicians were perfecting the art of audio montage through sampling. Sampling — or riffing — is as old as music itself, but new technologies developed in the 1980s and 1990s made it easier to reuse existing sound recordings. Acts like Public Enemy, De La Soul and the Beastie Boys created complex rhythms, references and nuanced layers of original and appropriated sound. But by the early 1990s, sampling had collided with the law. When recording industry lawyers got involved, what was once called “borrowed melody” became “copyright infringement.”

COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS examines the creative and commercial value of musical sampling, including the related debates over artistic expression, copyright law and money. The film showcases many of hip-hop music’s founding figures like Public Enemy, De La Soul and Digital Underground, as well as emerging artists such as audiovisual remixers Eclectic Method. It also provides first-person interviews with artists who have been sampled, such as Clyde Stubblefield — James Brown's drummer and the world's most sampled musician — and commentary by another highly sampled musician, funk legend George Clinton.
Computers, mobile phones and other interactive technologies are changing our relationships with media, blurring the line between producer and consumer and radically changing what it means to be creative. As artists find more inventive ways to insert old influences into new material, COPYRIGHT CRIMINALS poses the question: 
Can you own a sound?"

Mujuice - Teal Day EP

"Mujuice [i.e., Roma Litvinov] sees the composition and production of electronic music as an opportunity to shun several digital stereotypes. He does so by creating eclectic music, taken from almost everywhere – from acoustic jazz and pseudo symphonic styles to experimental clicks’n’cuts, microsampling, and [even] glitch tech."

10th Letter - Virgo Rising

Apollo Brown - Clouds

"Clouds is a 27 track instrumental project from Detroit producer Apollo Brown (The Reset, Brown Study, Gas Mask). While most have come to know Apollo’s production for its smash mouth, head nodding, grime, Clouds reveals another aspect of his production ability. This complex, mello instrumental album is ideal on a winter afternoon, or as a nightcap to the day. Each track is hypnotic and imaginative. Clouds is a 52 minute instrumental ride, a backdrop for reflection."

Ichiro - For Motherland

"But congratulate us there will today be real Samurai from the Country of the Rising Sun, emo- girls and technical progress! Ichiro is one of the brightest representatives of the up-to-date beat- scene of Japan and is characterized by the special style, which you will entangle not with whose another. Banzay! "

The Electric - Life Is Moving

"Some things in life never change: the great taste of freshly buttered toast, political scandal, the unpredictable UK weather interrupting play, and DJ Vadim building sonic vibes on tour! 
The renowned beat taster known for traveling the globe in search of the best musical influences unites a collective of superb individualistic artists to make a truly international super-group – The Electric. The brainchild formed during DJ Vadim’s worldwide tour for his last LP, “U Can’t Lurn Imaginashun” (BBE), The Electric gathers the talents of Chicago's freshest upcoming MC Pugs Atomz, UK sultry soulstress Sabira Jade, and of course Daddy Vad himself. Their sound gravitates around the core value of heartfelt music stemming from artistic honesty, one that starts conversations and tells emotional stories of break-ups, hook-ups, beauty and celebration.
‘The Electric’s songs are filled with more triumph, more sadness, more faith in the supernatural, much deeper feelings’ - DJ Vadim."

Long Arm - The Branches

" “The Branches” album is a reflection of a world, where human feelings and natural powers are bound together. Everything is correlated in this world. There is no alive-dead distinction. The season change depends just on state of mind. Every move, every wind breath, every sound brings an information, opened for everyone who believes and ready to accept it, who hears and knows how to listen. "

TES.LA - Dogma Master EP

Dibiase - Slapparatus

" Slapparatus is a decent journey into ever vibrant Californian beats phenomena. And a guide to it is non other than Mr. Dibiase aka Dibiase aka Dibia$e aka Diabolic's productions coming all the way from LA's very own Watts. He is wicked producer and a beat battle warrior with RedBull Big Tune 2010 champion title under his belt. At the moment he releases his material through Fat City, Jazzysport, All City and Alpha Pup. On the last mentioned label he also released his debut LP Machines Hate Me in 2010. So last year were quite large for him and now he wants to share it with you. Combining past, present and future his mix has all the necessary elements of groove, depth and bumpiness. And knowing that a big part of tracklist is by Dibiase's own killah's, wonders about level of production shouldn't be an issue. Plus it delivers perhaps the biggest variety of Mondayjazz shoutings ever recorded on the mix and Dibiase deserves a big shout out back for that! 
   And don't leave Slapparatus only for Monday, it's real beauty lies in a Sunday's afternoon walk through the neighborhood."
