Bobby Obsy – Robo Boy

Nick Poulianitis a.k.a. Bobby Obsy is a London-based music producer and designer. His beats are grounded in sample-based sounds, with the help of vintage samplers, synthesizers and live bass. His career as a designer complements his music persona; all character creation and concept art (including for this ‘Robo Boy’ release) is done by himself. His vision is to create new sci-fi worlds through music and design.

Bobby Obsy’s debut album ‘Rusty Gate’, was released digitally in 2018 via Vinyl Digital. This led to a successful campaign on Qrates done on his own, with since then vinyl copies available at HHV, Vinylism, and Jet Set Records in Kyoto & Tokyo. His debut release led to live sets in Amsterdam, London, the Reworks Festival in Greece, and to another vinyl feature on The Find Mag’s ‘Jazzvolution Chapter Two.’

The groove patterns on ‘Robo Boy’ never stay the same. You’ll notice metallic sound design from his trusty MPC & Ensoniq 12-bit sampler, pixelated transitions from his SP-404, dreamy galactic melodies, and his favorite jazzy bass melodies.

Bobby Obsy: “The reason why I care so much about just three tracks—investing my time building on a solid concept and creating bespoke illustrations—is only because of the over-saturated market in instrumental hip-hop. This release is a statement.

“My mentor and great friend, Propo’88, showed me the true, real way of taking care of business when it comes to music production, paying for mixing and mastering, as well as investing in good cover art. I have to give him credit for that and I believe that this is how every artist should approach his or her work. That’s what I tried to evoke by working on an entire concept for ‘Robo Boy.’

Pigeondust – Way Back When

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

“For me, sampling is like a collaboration,” says DJ Yuta Yamaoka, better known to global beatheads as Pigeondust. Residing in Chiba, Japan, Pigeondust spends his days either vinyl-digging or sourcing samples — that is, creating sonic collaborations — from his discoveries. Pigeondust is also a member of the EN TOKYO crew, representing a new generation of Japanese beat-makers who draw from a large variety of genres. In 2015, Pigeondust joined Cold Busted with his fantastic album Moon, Wisdom & Slackness. He now follows up with an ambitious double album titled Way Back When.

Way Back When explores a galaxy of hip hop styles throughout its whopping 36 cuts. The vibe is gritty and street-smart, samples from jazz, funk, world music, and other pathways poured into one groovable stew. “Chienowa” sets the tone with its tough beat, funk bass pops, and fly-by musical riffs. “Spiral Beat” is also notable for its arpeggiated jazz loop that shifts into gentle ‘70s piano soul. And the collaborations aren’t exclusive with samples — Turkish producer Ozoyo joins Pigeondust for the drum-twisting nature walk of “Magicnight,” and Swiss producer DRWN. appears on cut-up jazz jam “Intense.” There’s much to explore here.

The album is available from Cold Busted on double vinyl, its packaging a loving homage to Yo! MTV Raps and its sought-after trading cards. Each Vinyl album comes with a Pigeondust trading card complete with artist photo and vital stats. Represent.

Dueling Experts – Dueling Experts

From a lost chamber of a dark cavern, Dueling Experts unlock the most esoteric of styles. Chicago’s Verbal Kent (of Ugly Heroes) joins forces with Ghana mc Recognize Ali for the new self titled album produced by Lord Beatjitzu.

“I had a treasure trove of beats from legendary Lo-Fi beat maker Lord Beatjitzu that I needed to put to use…and sonically me and Ali were right there. The beats sound like they were dropped on the floor, almost beta like quality while at the same time exemplifying that 90’s RZA peak.”
– Verbal Kent (Ugly Heroes)

“Dueling Experts is that raw unadulterated hardcore boom bap” – Recognize Ali

Juicy the Emissary – TIMBER!

The follow up to Juicy The Emmisary’s fantastic 2017 SCM debut isn’t truly a follow up. The A-side of 2019’s “Timber” was found by SCM head House Shoes in 2016 while digging around on SoundCloud. ‘Shoes hit Juicy and let him know he was interested in releasing it on Street Corner Music, he just needed him to give him the B-side tracks. Juicy said he would oblige, but told ‘Shoes he had just finished another project and would sent that thru as well. That project would turn out to be ‘Attention Kmart Choppers’, one of the illest beat tapes ever in the medium. Juicy dissected a vault of Kmart’s musical library that would be played in-store while customers shopped in the 1980’s. Flawless.

He eventually completed the B-side that ‘Shoes needed to complete the album that initially garnered his interest in Juicy.

And here it is. Timber. Chop Chop.
