IN THE BEGINNING: BEFORE THE HEAVENS
12" Vinyl UK 22.12.17
10 years after blu and exile released their magnum opus below the heavens, the california duo have reunited to release 14 tracks from the original 2007 sessions. in the beginning: before the heavens contains previously heard songs and unreleased gems – the best of the best chosen from over 40 songs in the vault. their third collaboration follows 2012s give me my flowers while i can still smell them, and is slated for an october release. in the beginning: before the heavens is made of up songs that are raw and untouched, keeping the authenticity of blu and exile’s creativity at the time. the album has guest appearances from familiar names like dr. oop, donel smokes, aloe blacc, and blame one. while soul provider, another day, and party of two appeared on blus lifted ep, the majority of these songs showcase blu rapping at his peak, maintaining his underground attitude as he dishes on reaching star status (constellations), getting radio play (on the radio), or opposing views in a problem-ridden world (youre gonna die someday). exile, meanwhile, builds a golden hip-hop era feel with head-nodding samples and dj scratches.

ROSEBUDDS REVENGE (LP)
12" Vinyl lp US 12.06.17
time waits for no man, but venerable new york emcee and producer roc marci remains a rare exception to the rule. enchanting listeners with his dexterous lyricism, methodically soulful beats, and steely persona on releases like 2010 s critically-acclaimed marcberg, and his revered 2012 effort, reloaded, the pride of hempstead, long island emerges from the shadows after a three-year hiatus with the equally spellbinding rosebudd s revenge. this is the rapper s fourth studio album. aside from appearances on landmark releases, including de la soul s grammy-nominated and the anonymous nobody, and ka s days with dr. yen lo, roc marci s presence has been scarce, making rosebudd s revenge one of the more anticipated hip-hop releases of 2017.

PACKS (LP)
12" Vinyl lp US 08.03.17
after seemingly coming out of nowhere, your old droog set the internet aflame in 2014 with his self-titled debut ep, catching the attention of bloggers all over the web from new york magazine’s vulture to nahright. before long, conspiracy theories started and people began to posit that droog was another older, legendary new york rapper in disguise. profiled in the new yorker, droog (meaning “friend” in russian) set the record straight about who he was: a twenty-something ukrainian immigrant who fell in love with hip-hop when he arrived in south brooklyn as a small child. the timbre of his voice resembled that of a hip-hop legend but droog’s content had more to it than street dreams or observations from a project window. his music reflected his own unique life experience as he referenced everything from sports, to crime, to seinfeld and c-span in his rhymes. he was an intelligent hoodlum with a stand-up comedian’s sense of humor—unafraid to be as self-deprecating as he was self-aggrandizing.
on his critically-acclaimed debut, the your old droog lp, he vowed to “bring back storytelling” and now on his sophomore album, packs, droog delivers on that promise.

RE: LIVING (LP + MP3)
2x12" Vinyl lp US 12.06.15
having produced one third of nas generation-defining illmatic, large professors place on the pantheon of hip-hop heavyweights is already etched in stone. when you add in his groundbreaking debut as a member of main source - or the fact that he has collaborated with luminaries like pete rock, a tribe called called quest, busta rhymes, mobb deep, masta ace, and big daddy kane - it is crystal clear that the mans influence towers high above the history of the hip hop.
with fat beats records’ release of re:living, large professor builds on his already impressive discography with an entirely self-produced record that delivers all the crisp drums, razor-sharp scratches, and innovative uprock grooves that define his signature sound. *i m moving forward,* large says, *but i went back to an earlier formula. with this project i feel like it is the closest that i take it back to that main source style.*
featuring roc marciano, inspectah deck, cormega, g-wiz, fortune, and lord jamar, re:living shines a spotlight on new yorks best voices from the golden era to today. but above all, large professor lets his production do the talking - and with a legacy like his, beats speak louder than words.

ENTA DA STAGE - THE REMIXES (2X12 LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK 28.11.17
2017 remixed & remastered edition.
composed of members buckshot, 5ft, and dj evil dee, black moon simultaneously kicked off and defined the rap renaissance of new york with the release of enta da stage in 1993. whereas plenty of earlier groups had spit rage-filled rhymes to tear down the world’s unjust establishments, no one had evoked brooding pathos or introspective anger quite like black moon. underground hip-hop might have been dominated by the sunny sound of g-funk when enta da stage dropped, but from then on the scene turned to the dark side. black moon was rising.

baker’s dozen heads back to the east coast where veteran producer marco polo brings a welcomed boom bap flavor to the series. new york city is the birthplace of fat beats (and as many would say, hip-hop in general) and current nyc resident marco polo is true to form in representing our roots. as always, every volume of bdz features one artist and twelve tracks (with limited random copies including the baker’s dozen bonus track on a flexidisc) and comes equipped with a 5x7” postcard insert that features a photo of the artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their music making process. a personal narrative of how they got into beat making in the first place is featured on the back of the jacket. visually cohesive and packaged with the utmost attention to detail, baker’s dozen is a series that speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, and whose instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.
