Aaron Abernathy Ft. Phonte & Black Milk – Bachelorette (Stream)

Cleveland-bred musician Aaron Abernathy joins forces with long-time collaborators Black Milk and Phonte to bring his high school days back to life. “Bachelorette,” from Abernathy’s upcoming release Monologue, is an ode to growing up in the city of Cleveland, his Dad letting him borrow the ‘96 Pontiac Grand Prix, and him taking that opportunity to pick up his crew and test the speakers out with his favorite anthems on the way to the mall. The song also touches on each man’s high school love.

“You have three friends that all have three perspectives. The track tells the story of me trying to get at a girl I’ve been eyeing, Black Milk in a long-term relationship with his girl, and Phonte is the player of the group,” says Abernathy. “Bachelorette is the city of Cleveland to me. Musically I aimed to compose the record around that soulful pimpish midwest vibe to set the tone of the story I’m telling in the album. The feeling is home.”

Armed with a crateful of classics from Blue Note Records’ genre-defining years, Mark de Clive-Lowe has created a live-remix mixtape weaving from jazz to hip hop classics, to underground house and broken beat. Recorded and improvised live in one take, MdCL deploys his drum machine, sample pads, rhodes and keyboards on-the-fly bringing unique perspective to moments created decades earlier by the likes of Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, and Donald Byrd. From reminiscing samples that we fell in love with through A Tribe Called Quest and J Dilla, to reimagining sax great Joe Henderson riding a broken-afro electronic frenzy, MdCL paints his own vision of what Blue Note means to him. With guest cameos from rappers Bambu, John Robinson and Illa J, Inglewood CA- singer Nia Andrews, bass master Pino Palladino and rare collaborations with infamously elusive saxophonist Nomad Pendergrass.

Czarface (Inspectah Deck, Esoteric & DJ 7L) – Two In The Chest (Stream)

Czarface (Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck & 7L & Esoteric) is back! Fresh off the heels of their “All In Together Now” collaboration with Marvel Comics the trio continues to combine music and art with their latest release A Fistful of Peril, which will be released on 11-4-2016.

The back story of this album begins in the summer while Deck and Esoteric were in the studio recording some new Czarface material. During this time Marvel Comics had reached out to Czarface wanting some music to soundtrack their Black Panther web series, promoting their breakout comic of the same name. This Marvel meeting spawned the lead track “All In Together Now” and served as the primary inspiration for a fleshed-out album that nobody saw coming. The group camped out in the studio playing beats, talking comics, video games, and pop culture….what came about was A Fistful of Peril.

Starting the album off with the ARP keyboard odyssey of “Electric Level 1” is like entering the vortex of color and light in Kubrick’s 2001. The aptly titled “Two in The Chest” showcases Deck & Eso’s ability to deliver punchlines and pop culture references with ease over an exceptional bass and guitar combo. “Czar Wars” has the two sparring back and forth bringing that ‘X-Men/Danger Room’ mentality that Deck often to refers to when in Czar-mode. Psycho Les of The Beatnuts steps in on “Dust” while “Lizard City” introduces ‘Czarface Pajamas’. Yes, you read that correctly. The off-kilter “Steranko” has Meyhem Lauren and graffiti legend Rast RFC joining forces with Czarface as they weave their way through a mind-bending array of varying beats. Other features on the album include Conway The Machine on “Machine, Man & Monster” and AOTP’s Blacastan on “Tarantulas.” Another one of the album’s highlights is “Dare Iz A Darkseid” (inspired by Deck’s in-stdio stories of being on the road with Red & Meth) which along with “Talk That Talk” is the perfect balance of wit and humor that make up the core of Czarface.

Building on an already rock solid foundation with two critically acclaimed albums, A Fistful Of Peril features some of the groups most cohesive material. The chemistry between the hungry-as-ever Deck and Eso overflows as the two emcees trade lines, humor and plenty of razor sharp lyrics over the backbone of 7L production.
A Fistful Of Peril in a word? “Excelsior!”
