Lil B

God’s Father [mixtape]

Anything I can say here, Basedgod *Basedgod*nyeah* already preached it *man ya feel m’aye* and, like, I appreciate the struggle @identity @songwriting @Internet, but yo: this mixtape did what you couldn’t #surpassdeity *WHOA-DEY* so, I don’t know who said it, but someone called Lil B “avant-garde,” maybe it was FACT, but props, because that’s Basedgod’s em’oh *Basedgod*Basedgod* though, this God’s Father mixtape is way more subdued than his prior 2012 releases: White Flame and Blue Eyes *Somalia*Africa* like, I’ve no doubt that Lil B can tiptoe on water and, and speak in space, with K clips, etc. “This [God’s Father] mixtape is so epic cause everybody KNOWS I’m Jesus Christ” –Lil B *mmm’errrrrm*

DJ Diamond

“It’s Not Rite”

DJ Diamond, whose Flight Muzik LP on Planet Mu last year made it to #5 on our year-end list, has just dropped a new track called “It’s Not Rite.” The song appears to be some sort of nod/reference to TMT favorite DJ Rashad, who released a track last year called “Itz Not Rite.” Even more convincingly: both tracks footwork the shit out of Vicki Sue Robinson’s 1979 song “Hope Your Feelings Are Like Mine” (which has also received the hip-hop treatment a number of times). Here, for yourself:

Diamond’s version is coming out soon on an eight-song EP titled Deeper Than Trax via new Amsterdam label Liquorish Dubz. And expect Flight Muzik Vol. 2 sometime this year, too.

Black to Comm

“Water”

One of the year’s strongest albums came out this week, and it’s not by Andrew Bird. It’s called EARTH, and it’s by Marc Richter a.k.a. Black to Comm. The album is the soundtrack to a 2009 silent film of the same name by Singaporean artist/director Ho Tzu Nyen. Here’s how Richter described it: “The film basically is a post-apocalyptic collage based on paintings by classical European painters (Caravaggio, Delacroix, Rembrandt, Géricault) — the music tries to translate that concept employing similar collage-based sampling techniques using loops made from vintage vinyl and shellac records combined with acoustic and electronic instrumentation and voice.”

Check out the video for “Water” above, and grab the album via De Stijl.

NHK

“Fu2” / “476/572_2”

Attention human beings: Osaka-born producer Kouhei Matsunaga has a new split 12-inch with SND (Mark Fell and Matt Steel)! One of Matsunaga’s tracks, filed here under his NHK moniker and created with the help of Toshio Munehiro, is called “Fu2,” a minimal techno dance track that flitters, flutters, then flails its way to a slow-motion rave ender. Ugh, I love it. Check it out (and while you’re at it, also check out an excerpt of SND’s side here):

Meanwhile, Matsunaga recently released Dance Classics Vol. I as NHK’Koyxeи. Here’a video for “476/572_2”:

Matsunaga’s 12-inch with SND and his full-length Dance Classics Vol. I are available on PAN. Which makes sense, because PAN fucking rules.
