~40 minutes of new tunes performed live by Nickelus F and OHBLIV

(it’s amazing what someone proficient with an sp-404 can do)

I saw Phony Ppl at Blue Note in NYC over the weekend. They were so killing and seem to have so much fun on stage.

Mosaic is in my top albums of 2018.

yeah. He’s obviously a fairly talented writer/freestyler/whatever-er but kind of lacks charisma/delivery/timbre-of-interest. I see why he ghost writes for people :stuck_out_tongue:

Glad you dig, my first time hearing of this series as well. Seems new?

I’ve always been a sucker for boom bap stuff. I had never heard of this guy until about a month ago.

Ohbliv is so amazing—I’ve played a few shows with him where he’s done all solo instrumental beats, and he just puts the 404 on a stool, plugs it in to a PA and plays for over an hour. It’s incredible.

Ah cool to see Dibiase here ! That’s my bad for not mentionning it earlier in favor of more “trendy” names but he’s very much on most of my home rap playlists too, thank you for correcting that omission ! He sometimes share some of his process on twitter / insta too if you’re curious.

Legowelt did a series of Memphis rap mixes that are pretty good, you can find them at the bottom of the page here - http://legowelt.org/mixes/

No tracklists, unfortunately.

I fluctuate in and out of listening to Swedish hip hop as a few of my favorites aren’t putting out tracks too frequently. This just recently came out in February and it honestly sounds like it belongs in a movie.

I find Quelle Chris last track incredible, it also sadly relates to the current rap news cycle… Powerful song.
