Tangent - Self Made EP

This is Tangent's vinyl EP off his second album 'Global Swarm', released in 2000.
It's missing some of the finest production work featured on Lost Then Found in my opinion, but it's still worth a try. Once again thanks K.P. for the rip.

In another news, Jihad from Third Sight is releasing his second solo full length album next friday on every format possible, it's called The Wretched Of The Verse and sounds a winner.

Tangent - Lost Then Found

That album was requested a long time ago and I'm happy to present it at last, thanks to Kaliyuga Pro -once again- who provided the rip.
Tangent is a MC from Salt Lake City, and part of the Furthermore trio. Lost Then Found is his first album, released in 1996.
I didn't listen to it enough to have a definite opinion yet but this far I'd say this is good... Pretty dope actually. Productions are varied and well crafted, emceeing is well on point... Give it a check, you won't regret.

In other great, non-related news, Wiz1 the producer from Blak Forest / Circle Of Power recently announced a 20th anniversary reissue of the classic "You Are Now Entering..." with bonus and unreleased materials.. We'll keep an eye on that, believe it!

Another great news, the upcoming release of, not one but two! Third Sight vinyls, thanks to Sanctimonious Records. Both releases will consist of tracks off TS' recent Orchids & Corpses old material compilation, and will have 6 tracks on a EP, and the other one will be a 7'' with both versions of Gun Shot Victim. Better believe I'll bag both of these! I'll post links whenever it's officially out.

Bignous - The Outcome EP

I've been looking for that EP for a while and finally got a copy to share. This is the latest EP from the Hobo Junction's Bignous, although it's 11 years old now. Apparently Big made the jump to the eastcoast at the time he released this.
There's 5 hidden tracks, so total 12 tracks for 22 minutes, productions are rather minimal and dark, I like it although I wasn't expecting much. Enjoy!

Tenshun - Lathes & 7" Pack

I have this stack of super limited lathe cuts, mostly cut by 10shun himself and for the most dating back around 2008. Although the sound is quite cheap (partly cause of the lathe cut quality, partly cause of my shitty set-up and partly cause most of his beats are saturated as fck.) I thought this would interest the super collector nerds that hadn't the chance to cope it while they could.
I also added several pics of the records cause most of his packages are super on point and helps you get into his world.

Record Players - S-T

This is the first Record Players album, 7 untitled tracks only released on cassette in 1999 by San Jose label Highground.
The R.P. roster changed with time, this first draft consists of Joe Dub, Neila and Brandon B (of Supermarket) and on productions San Jo's Pilot Rase and Dick Jones. Most of the tracks were made during a session in Phoenix, AZ in 1999 minus one Joe Dub track from 1997.
A rather rare to find item with a couple of real nice cuts.

I strongly advise to check Direct Drive if you didn't already, the second (well, third but it's really a cd reprint of the second, "Two Thousand And One") very underrated  RP album that I end up playing a couple of times every summer.

Ill-Phonix - End To End

Ill-Phonix is a group from Phoeniz, AZ. 
That being said I don't know much else about them, I copped this vinyl by sheer curiosity and have mixed feelings about it. I still ripped it since it wasn't available anywhere.. Make up your own mind!

In other news, there's a batch of interesting stuff to cope recently:

Dave Dub and Haez One just released their dope first collab album, The Broken Uglies, only digital for now but cds and cassettes soon to come.

SFSM did a reprint of Long Live Or Die Trying on vinyl (great title, great album.. hopefully more to come).

Then this upcoming compilation of rare demos by New Mexico's Empty Pockets by the World Wide Wax label from germany that already brought you the 3 Shades Of Rhythm 3LP reissue.

The good folks over at Beetbak just release a cassette compilation with a tight line-up. All the benefits will go to Jean (of Nga Fsh's "Jean In Da Front Row").

T.Spillman also have his first cassette release on his Independent Studies label, a beat tape from Zay Town's Mr Aeks called Lunch Buffet.

And finally, my very own Westakoasta cd version, a mixtape dedicated to the westcoast underground.
