Colorado rapper Raging Moses raps over the dreamiest beat you’ll hear all week for new single “Talk To Me”. With a name like Raging Moses, you wouldn’t expect a song of this nature. But this might be the best use of the phrase “never judge a book by its cover”. For those who don’t know, Raging Moses is a Christian rapper and producer from Colorado…

Starchildluke is back with BOWSERTAPE2, his 8th #Road2Switch album. Knxwledge might be winding down on his output but he isn’t the only one who can churn out albums and EPs. Starchildluke embarked on an ambitious series called #Road2Switch where proceeds from his albums went towards a Nintendo Switch. He managed to acquire enough money but he’s carrying it on for Switch games. The UK producer…

Abe M Beats put Kendrick Lamar’s Backseat Freestyle over a dope gospel flip and I can’t believe I missed it. You can’t beat a good gospel sample. The likes of Black Milk, Thelonious Martin, and Apollo Brown know their way around a church choir. But Abe M Beats really took the congregation to church with this one. Backchurch Freestyle is a holy mashup of Kendrick’s…

Iconic album covers morphed into Gameboys is a thing I didn’t know I needed. I started modding my own Gameboys a few months ago and I’m really enjoying it. Established modders like gamechangermods inspired me to take the plunge and he has a mini project of his own. Introducing GBS x LPS. As described by the man himself: Direct from bed-stuy Brooklyn…by popular demand…announcing out…

The Californian producer put together an album of beats from the last few months of 2018. I found Ruffian Kick last year while waiting for a plane from Nice back to the UK. I was glad to find a new release in 2019 and his most recent is a belter. LEAVES. is, as he describes it himself: some beats from the fall & winter seasons….

It’s a new moniker for Starchildluke as he releases his fifth #Road2Switch series. No prizes for guessing where the name Shrill Evans comes from. But in case you didn’t know, it’s a lo-fi take on the late piano maestro Bill Evans. And Starchildluke took that inspiration for his new alter-ego on new album, MONOLITH. He describes it as “a sub-20-minute journey through jazz and classical…

Another month, another beat tape from Starchildluke. This one is called GENGARTAPE. Even though he hit his target, the #Road2Switch series still rolls on with a fifth release. Starchildluke’s GENGARTAPE doesn’t have a concrete theme, but many of the samples on the tracks reference things like ghosts and poison, a nod to the titular Pokémon, Gengar. The producer initially wanted a video game beat tape…

We reviewed Clear Soul Forces’ new album, Still. It’s been way too long since we last wrote about Clear Soul Forces. So when I heard they had a new album out, I had to right that wrong. The acclaimed Detroit trio released Still, their first full-length album in four years after numerous solo projects in that time. The last joint LP was Fab Five, released…

DJ Manipulator flexes his synth muscles on ARP Revisited, featuring Blu and Louie Gonz. What’s that, another synth stonker from DJ Manipulator? Hell yeah it is! The producer/DJ gave his guest MCs something to rap about on ARP Revisited, a reimagining of the original “ARP” from his Synth Tape album. East Coast met West Coast over Manipulator’s “skillfully blended” scratches and chops, warped together with…

A little late but the UK producer is back again with his fourth #Road2Switch album release, BOWSERTAPE. In arguably his best release of the series, Starchildluke brings us BOWSERTAPE. He’s called it an “alternative love album” loosely based on Bowser’s “relationship” with Princess Peach. To tell the tale, Starchildluke has used mostly R&B samples with a random mix of skits per his trademark style. As…
