Erik Jackson’s latest album Time Enough at Last is described as follows:
This album is an abstract thought. A travel through time. A realization of time and memories of special times and special people. An understanding that we can never visit those times again and the sadness that comes with that. Love, joy and sadness represent time for me. Old pictures of family and friends that have passed on; yet live on.
The album is laced with tons of live instrumentation that’ll make the sample heavy beat-maker jealous and the listener’s brainwaves jump into leaps of excitement. It features Joey Crown, Vicky Flint, Josh Shuck, and beat-maker extraordinaire’s Mr. Moods and Jenova 7. Please give this album all your time.

When Mr. Moods collaborates with Erik Jackson, my brain explodes with so much joy and excitement. They were meant for one another and their latest album Dans Les Nuages Vol. 1 simply affirms my conviction on why this dynamic duo must remain creating albums together. They put a serious effort in ensuring that their fans have the beats sounds that clear the clouds and make it sunny again.
Dans Les Nuages marks this first album of 2014 and it collects some of the finest trip hop and jazzy dust music. Please join them in listening to this work of art.

HEY WTF Records knows how to select beatmakers who have style and finesse. The newest album in their catalog is Brian To Earth.
BTE GOT CHOPS is showcasing Brian to Earth’s ability to put on both the rapping hat AND the producing hat while still maintaining that high level of dopeness that he is known for. (editor’s note: Not to say that he’s a lone wolf- “Mellow as Wine” features super impressive guest verses from Dex Amora & Mos Poetik)

Kognitif‘s new release Monometric is a meticulous work of art. The value added from carefully selected melodies brings a genuine spirit into a world of DIY music, a clear sign that longer time-lapses in between releases is not of out of the ordinary, but an extraordinary strategy to maintain consistent quality. This album deserves all your undivided attention; the album is equivalent to taking a non-stop train toward no exact destination, however the desired destination is up to how far you listen to this album, the farther – the better. Happy Listening!

In a time when most producers/beatmakers are attempting to push the “sound of tomorrow,” Pig Pen approached GAWD in a humanistic mode; soul sampling music that’ll make you skin ooze with those things called goose-bumps.
GAWD is Pig Pen’s third beat tape in four-years and was recorded “in front of a live audience at the United Methodist Church of Southern Detroit (UMCSD) on New Year’s Eve 2013.”
