Paris production duo, The Funk League, will be releasing their debut Funky As Usual on January 24th. Consisting of Hugo and Soulbrother Suspect, The Funk League focuses its work on paying homage to the boom-bap era of hip hop.

Above, you can find their absolutely charming video for “On & On” featuring Sadat X. Take a journey with 3D cardboard cutouts in an adorable diorama world. What an awesome concept – loving the animations. Great jazz vibe and horns on the track as well.

New Release: Gensu Dean – ‘The CL Smooth American Me Remixes’ + Download


Dallas producer Gensu Dean is on his way to getting some well deserved shine. Having already received love from DJ Spinna, DJ Premier, and DMC (of Run DMC), the quiet giant has already worked on music for David Banner, Lord Jamar, Sadat X, CL Smooth, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

Below, we have a special treat for you. A while back, Gensu was commissioned to work on a remix project for CL Smooth that was never released. This week the project called The CL Smooth American Me Remixes was released as a free download. The music knocks and glides, slinks and grooves, and creates a beautiful soundscape easy on the ears.


Video: Nickodemus – “A New York Minute” + NYC Premiere


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Things get hot in a New York minute on Nickodemus’ newest track featuring Sadat X, The Real Live Show, Rabbi Darkside, and iLLspokiNn. Inspired by the recent events in “Tunisisa, Egypt, the Middle East, Wisconsin, and the old school NYC Blackout of 1977,” the DJ/producer invited 5 emcees to share a personal story each in a New York minute. After completing an individual turn, the next emcee was expected to take the story further and provide additional perspective. The video is by Justin Carty who created original paintings of emcees and animated them to create the backdrop for the video.

This Thursday, you can catch up with Nickodemus at the official release party for the video, which will include an art exhibition, a sneaker art battle, and a dance party!

Nickodemus Featuring The Real Live Show, Sadat X, iLLspokinN and Rabbi Darksode – “A New York Minute” + MP3

The latest record by Nickodemus, A New York Minute, features The Real Live Show, Sadat X, iLLspokinN and Rabbi Darkside plus a couple remixes. The “Summer of 77 Mix” heads into hip-hop territory as the hand-selected MC’s each have a personal story to tell before they pass the mic. The production is funky with 70′s Afro-funk break, organ drops & rapid fire guitar licks – not to mention plenty of shine on the mic from all the MC’s involved. The “Barrio Bump Mix” offers a more percussive dancefloor swing to the same stories, but in a live-at-the-BBQ fashion. Look out for a video coming soon…
