L'Roneous & Brycon - Maart Vol.1 The World According To Gurp



Oh yes. L'Roneous is back with a short album (20 minutes) produced by Brycon (Grand Killa Con, affiliated to SF's Gurp City) and it's banging. I love L'Ron's voice and technical flow (sometimes reminiscent to Aceyalone) but since Imaginarium the productions weren't always on par with his skills. On Maart One the beats are short, catchy, and it's a perfect match...  There's also a 7'' released next week with a couple of cuts from this album. 
Special bonus points to the title who refers to a brilliant John Irving novel (you need to check that out too)... and to the fact that there's a Z-Man cameo on it.

G.I.T. ft. Street Preachers - The Warning 12''


Another question-mark one. I discovered it on Feadz' SR2 mixtape, the vinyl is quite easy to cope although I never heard of them before nor I never heard anything else made by either Get It Together Productions or the Street Preachers. It's a one-and-only shot (only one track on the 12'', self-produced and released) reminiscent of the Rubberoom / Techno Animal / indus-rap of the early 00's (it's dated of 1998 and from NYC btw).
Anyone know what happened to G.I.T.?

Chocaholics - Planting Candytrees



My cousin and I were (are) the Chocaholics. I posted our first collaborative mixtape here 5 years ago

Plankton - Fresh Off A 6 Pack



I already told you about my fascination for finnish mixtapes. Ever since that post, Abyss has been removed but the equally dope My Groundhog Day and I Like B-Sides appeared for free download on Anti-Party Music's bandcamp
I recently got back a little batch of my tape collection left in a muddy garage down south and found a copy of this long pause mix cassette from 2006. It's 96 minutes long, full of dope indie rap and homemade remixes and served cold with a good old tape hiss.
Enjoy while it lasts.

Gershwin BLX - Nocturnal Ron Presents Gershwin 12''



This one is the first piece of vinyl by LA crew Bassline Xcursionists aka Gershwin BLX. I must admit I don't know much about the producer Nocturnal Ron, not even which year he released this. It seemed to be complete auto-production. 
It's a pretty solid 4-track 12'', with "Rhymes / Riddles" being the highlight with it's infectious beat and chorus.

If you like it you should check BLX's first album, originally a cassette-only release (95-97 era) but put as a free download on their Bandcamp.

As far as BLX's solo joints I also own two 12"s by Omni that I really like and might put them out there one of these days. 
I also recently checked on Malkovich's other projects and really liked his Skeletons album (free DL as well) among others.
