With deejay cuts from DJ Pressure and beats courtesy of Gee-O, Dead Man Walkn, Soul Theory, Sofa King London, Slap Up Mill, Rediculus and Architech, S.

In 1999 he met producer Mike S (now known as Slap Up Mill), and created a crew called UTI aka Under The Influence but for numerous reasons the albums never surfaced. It was at this point Mike S & S.Kalibre formed the two man team called Hard Livin and were picked up by record label called Sin Nombre and landed a distribution deal with Universal Records with their video to ‘Oh Girl’ getting played on MTV and establishing him as one a true underground legend in the centuries early wave of UK Hip-Hop.

Since then S. Kalibre has continuously released music and videos and has remained cohesive, continuing to build upon his reputation as a hard hitting spitter who actually has something to say. This accomplished UK artist who has featured on tracks alongside UK artists such as Blade, Skinnyman, Logic, Genesis Elijah, Kashmere, Manage, Big Cakes, Stig Of The Dump and more as well as US legends such as Q Unique and Mykill Miers. He’s also shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Phi Life Cypher, Jehst and more and is currently working on a brand new material as well as a mixtape that will be released throughUK mixtape giants UK Runnings. There’s no stopping this talented, experienced and committed Rhymesmith, S. Kalibre is on a roll.

Brother Ali on ‘Left In The Deck’

“I’m excited to release a new musical project. ‘Left In The Deck’ is a collection of 10 raw, grimy recordings made in basements and hotel rooms around the world. This demo-tape style release was produced entirely by Jake One. It hasn’t been polished up for the market or cleaned for the radio. These songs were left in their original demo form and are intended only for my family of direct supporters. The beats are grimy and I feel like this is some of the best rhyming I’ve ever captured on tape.”

Stereo Boyz, “Carz, Clubz & Theaterz” album

After three years as the Stereo Boyz and countless mixtapes, EPs and songs, Mixo and Mic Audio a.k.a. Stereo Boyz present their official debut album Carz, Clubz & Theaterz. Work on the album started as early as the Stereo Boyz were formed. Coming from the Detroit Hip Hop crew Rhyme Asylum, Mixo, Mic Audio and Kid Boombox started developing a new sound, something more fitting for themselves and without the restrictions they had faced during the years before. “This album is our best work to date, the best from the past three years, and we are already working on tomorrow,” says Mixo. “It’s everything we are as Stereo Boyz, from the moment we started until now. We hope our fans see that. And we look forward to how people respond to the album, both good and bad. We can’t wait to see our impact on Hip Hop.”

14KT + Blu #Review

b8j9_14KTNickelDimed655x_1

Michigan producer 14KT releases his newest album today, Nickel & Dimed. Off-kilter drum programming, spacey synths, an incomparable ear for sample flips, and KT’s signature boom-bap are the foundation of this unique concept album. The golden one starts the album off with a rhyme of his own, laying out his frustration with people who simply jack, pilfer, and plunder his beats for their own. KT doesn’t linger though, as he quickly gets right back in the saddle and delivers 14 inspired instrumentals. But, before anyone can jump on the tracks, KT called up some of his favorite artists to lay verses over those same instrumentals. These are some heavyweight tracks, including Blu in razor sharp Below The Heavens form, Black Milk, Jamall Bufford (Buff1), the amazing progressive soul singer AB, as well as singer JMSN, not to mention the legendary Kokane on a west coast anthem alongside MED.

Get a taste with the new 14KT single “PAID (featuring Blu).”

North Carolina based emcee Fluent delivers Retro Future, a street album which showcases the burgeoning talents artistic diversity. On the album, Fluent meanders from boom-bap influenced production that’s rooted in the context of Hip-Hop’s Golden Era, while also crafting records that emphasize his knack for song writing, over more progressive instrumentation native to club and radio, hence the title, Retro Future. Featured guests on the album include Royce da 5’9″, SpaceGhostPurrp, Median, El da Sensei (Artifacts), Kaze, Jozeemo and more. Producers tapped include 9th Wonder, Khrysis, J. Cardim, as well as Poland’s production duo, The Returners, among others. Retro Future is now available for free download.
