Leftover Links has returned again with more music from some of your favourite labels’ favourite labels.
1. Bluestaeb – GISEKE
Bluestaeb’s new album is a kaleidoscope of R&B, hip hop, and funk featuring the likes of Mick Jenkins, Jerome Thomas, and JuJu Rogers.
2. REMI – Fried
Fried is a bittersweet album as it marks the third and final foray by REMI (Remi Kolawole and Sensible J). The album was written and recorded over three years between 2017–2020 and features a host of guest vocalists including Children of Zeus’ Tyler Daley, Lorry, and Silent Jay. Another fine blend of R&B, soul, and hip hop.
3. S. Fidelity – Fidelity Radio Club
Fidelity Radio Club is a concept album from Berlin-based hip hop producer S. Fidelity. The concept, as you might have guessed, centres on a fictitious radio show that explores a host of genres and an A-star list of collaborators: Bluestaeb, Melodiesinfonie, Suff Daddy, and Le Maestro to name a few.
4. Gianni Brezzo – The Awakening
Gianni Brezzo is a project headed by multi-instrumentalist Marvin Horsch and his debut record ‘The Awakening’ is an exhibition of his style and virtuosity both as a musician and a songwriter. The EP is a personal jazz journey that captures every sinew of melancholy and raw emotion that Horsch has to offer.
5. Illect Recordings: Mind the Rap Vol. 5
Mind the Rap Vol. 5 is a 20-track compilation featuring some of Illect’s illustrious roster (James Gardin, Sareem Poems & Newselph, Ozay Moore, Imperial & K.I.N.E.T.I.K.). It dropped back in January and reached as high as #18 on Bandcamp’s Hip-Hop/Rap chart.
6. Imperial x K.I.N.E.T.I.K. x Awon – Something From Nothing
It’s a match made in hip hop heaven—Awon connected with Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K. on a track called Something From Nothing with Awon and Kinetik trading verses over a classic Imperial beat.
7. K.I.N.E.T.I.K. & Terem’s – Rhyme Travel
It’s another K.I.N.E.T.I.K. collab joint, this time with France’s Terem. Rhyme Travel combines the tranquil production of Terem with K.I.N.E.T.I.K’s lyrical tales of life, interspersed with mentions of international landmarks. Think of this track as a hip hop open-top bus.
