beat joe has no need for gangsigns. it’s all about rap. when beat joe is calling, mcs from each crew in nuremberg get together to style, flex and spit. vegas haus is a place where strong words and explicit announcements are meeting well rounded flows and deep statements accompanied by fine sample beats. promising newcomers like lazy lou, nbg-veterans like laca or high flyers like johnny rakete showing us what rap can do. therefore, they are serving clichés without evoking feelings of surrogate shame. ignoring the german rap of the 2000s, hip hop from “keine gangzeichen” brings the golden 90s back to the future, bitch! or to say it with johnny raketes words: “ich habe rap gerettet, aber keiner hats gesehen. // i saved rap but nobody saw it.”

the intelligentsia have been claiming it for quite some time, and now finally, after many petitions, demonstrations and protests, a tiny little record label from germany has achieved what only google and troubleshooter par excellence angus macgyver have ever accomplished: admission into the worldwide dictionary. “to google” and “to macgyver” will soon be joined by the newly coined verb “to tramp”. the term can be decoded as “to seek and find the seemingly hopeless” or “looking for something hidden”, always connected with a positive output.
for several years, gold seekers at the most humble and tiniest record label on earth (however certainly one of the funkiest!) follow their dedicated passion. their brand new masterwork, movements 8, focuses on rare privately produced american soul, jazz and funk, and proudly bears the title as the 8th volume in the movements series.

n april of 2010, robert, bobby, alberta, delouse, and patricia gathered at the home of their parents, raymond and joella walker to make a recording with michael reilly. it would be reilly’s third venture to record the a capella gospel tradition ofcomo, mississippi for daptone records. it was during his first recording (the voices of panola county: como now) that he encountered the walker family and learned of their great musical tradition. raymond walker was courted by both fred mcdowell and sam cooke - each asked him to sing behind them on tour.
respectfully, raymond declined, on account that the singers wanted him to sing blues rather than gospel. however, it was the walkers’ voices and not their rich histor y that captured the attention of daptone and inspired reilly’s return to como to make a full-length record of the walker family songs. recorded in their living room, these performances are as deep and stirring as they are unembelished. take a moment to take in panola county spirit, with the walker family singers.
