Beats Bugseed – Fresh Jive EP One of our favourite Japanese beatmakers, Bugseed, dropped a fresh beat tape called “Fresh Jive EP” on Bandcamp a few months ago.

This edition of Leftover Links is all about the rappers. We get so many submissions every day, it’s not possible to get to them all as and when they come through. That means we miss things and get to them late. A bit like when you’re stuck for something to eat and have nothing substantial in, you put together a mish-mash concoction. And then it…

Leftover Links has returned after a lengthy hiatus with links from Illect Recordings and Jakarta Records. It’s been 3.5 years since we last did an instalment of Leftover Links.

Since the 80s, they have featured in most of the music we listen to in some form or another…

The latest edition of Leftover Links is all about Jamaica, with articles featuring Lee “Scratch” Perry, Count Ossie and the beginnings of rock steady. We continue our Jamaica Month with a range of articles involving the island’s music and culture and how it has affected the world around it. You may be surprised to not see any articles specifically about Bob Marley. That’s purely because…

J Dilla was more than just “beats”. Our latest edition of Leftover Links looks at the man behind the music. 10th February marks the anniversary of James Dewitt Yancey’s death, a producer better known by his stage names “Jay Dee”, and, later, “J Dilla”. His talent and legacy may not have been as extroverted and brash as a lot of his contemporaries but it’s safe…

Our latest edition of Leftover Links is dedicated to those rare grooves and crate digging exploits from the interwebz.
