ANGELS DUST – Musings

Also Available On: CD or CASSETTE

ANGELS DUST is producer Psychopop & singer Flavia. In June 2015 HIT+RUN released their mesmerizing debut EP ‘Slow Tapes’ [HNR48], six moody songs swathed in grainy reverb and dense production. Critics praised Angels Dust’s hazy sound & haunting vocal stylings, bracketing their psychedelic dream pop alongside Portishead, Broadcast, Mazzy Star & Beach House.

In Summer 2015, four vocal tracks were passed to select producers (Dntel, Elusive, Tenshun, Esgar, Coto, Mystery Cave, Walter Gross, Giovanni Marks, Citizen Ten, Sinking Swimmer, Graveline, Gato & Chitlins) to reinterpret in their own method.

Starchildluke – THE Black Nerd Beat Tape

Terry Gant and Troy Hunter are friends of mine and host Stakes Is High: THE Black Nerd Podcast where they “talk nerd s**t and things that they like”, which includes sports, tech, comics, music, and whatever else attracts their attention. Since they both have exquisite taste in friends *ahem* and music, I decided to make a whole beat tape for them.

The Schizophrenics – The Schizophrenics

The Schizophrenics came to life in the Summer of 2015. Created by Queens rapper Starvin B and producer Dusty G, it is the story of three different characters whose personalities blur the line between reality and delusion. It is a mix of raw lyrics over rugged beats, proving that the “golden era” of hip hop is still among us, as long as you know where to look. Starvin B takes the word “emcee” to a new level, seamlessly switching personalities and styles to deliver three distinct voices. Dusty G keeps heads nodding with classic hip hop production with a chillingly dark edge. The Schizophrenics is available at www.darkforest.nyc

Emapea – Seeds, Roots & Fruits

Also Available On: Limited Edition 12″ Vinyl or Limited Edition Cassette or Limited Edition Compact Disc

Accomplished Polish beat-maker Emapea has made memorable appearances on many Cold Busted label compilations – such as in the IWYMI and Bust Free series – and has been selected for inclusion in Mark Farina’s next Mushroom Jazz installment. All this activity has mouths watering for the debut full length album from Emapea, and the appearance of Seeds, Roots & Fruits doesn’t disappoint one bit. Featuring sixteen exceptional tracks ranging from hip hop to acid jazz to psychedelic trip hop in the style of Mo’Wax, Emapea’s long player is indeed, as a wise man once said, “a journey into sound.” Seeds, Roots & Fruits rises above the average beats album to reveal the enduring depth of this young producer … Emapea is one to watch.

“There is a vision that plays in my head very often. I remember the night the vision was induced in my mind and even then, it felt so familiar. It was an evening in Brickell Key, Miami, and I was with my friend, Zachary. While waiting for our friend Bliss, Zachary and I sat on a bench, alongside the Miami River as we lingered on the island. My eyes wandered before I could inhale deeply. As the night sunk darker and the wind blew colder, an elevated euphoria hit me. I was unable to comprehend why I felt such ecstasy. The topography of the island affected me immensely; the depth of the night sky, the faint jazz music coming from across the river, along with the sound of the waves, the wind tangling my hair, and my head on Zachary’s right shoulder. Glaring at the city lights seeking through the scandalous Miami humidity, I cried. It was in that moment that the vision originated.
Suddenly, the vision shifts to a close-up of a gentlelady in her early 20s, wearing a red velvet gown as she sits inside a high-class restaurant late at night with a group of young adults. She handles her glass of white wine and places it gently on the interstice of her matte, dark nude lipstick-stained lips to take a sip. I am unsure who this lady is, but I recognize the setting as being somewhere on Brickell Key that same night I was with Zachary.
