This year Gajah released a solo LP called Poverty's Prodigy on the Acid Lab Records label. Now he presents the Remixed version which features an Eastern influenced production by Agartha Audio for the track, Debt. Gajah and Nasa have also begun work for 2013 to collaborate for an EP so look for that as well.
Atari Blitzkrieg has dropped Nards over DOOM's Agrimony beat on via the Godsendant soundcloud page. The single features kids screaming "Kick em in the Nards!" and bopping pianos while Atari breaks down his evolution toward maturity.
Indie label, Devil's Kazoo, has put together a Sandy Benefit single called Open Your Heart Again. The jazzy track features Adam Warlock collaborating with emcees Big Rooz, Melodious Mike and DS and is Produced by MOEdavey. 100% of the proceeds from the single (where donations start at just $1) are going to local charities in the NYC area. Adam's in particular is going to Staten Strong. The single comes with a clean, instrumental and accapella version so grab that up and pay it forward for a good cause.
Road Is Ruff was the first single from Agartha Audio & Taiyamo Denku's Quadrofiendia release, featuring Craig G. & Sadat X, but it was a remix of an as yet unreleased production...until now. Denku dropped the original version, Produced by Jay Hu, on his bandcamp page so head over and check out the horn and string influenced original.
Producer, Black-Tokyo, just released his B.L.A.C.K.T.O.K.Y.O. Lp and collaborated with two Uncommon emcees in Adam Warlock and Aeon Grey. Aeon's track sets off the album while Adam's comes toward it's close with a focus on the hypocracy involved in the management of natural disasters. The album's contributions from all involved are really strong and make for a cohesive album which is the first from Tokyo that entirely features emcee collaborations. Keep an ear out for more work between Black-Tokyo and Adam Warlock, they are starting work on a full length together called The Last Angry Man that should be completed in 2013.
