INTERVIEW: AbJo

We interviewed Abjo and talked about his work rate, his fondest musical memories and why “Murder$ in Grandeur” changed everything. There’s no mistaking the talent of Abjo. His music rarely conforms to labels and is loved worldwide. Nobody needs to know what it’s called as long as they know they can rock out and body movement is always assured. Affiliations with the likes of Potholes In…

FREE DOWNLOAD: AbJo – BNG!

Christmas needn’t be over when you have the likes of AbJo dropping new music. His EP, “BNG!”, is free to download. Talented and fast working musicians mean blog writers rarely get a moment’s peace. AbJo seems to run on an unending amount of fuel and found time to release “BNG!”, a free EP for Christmas Day. The San Diego beatsmith compiled three tracks for the…

Abjo – The Cold Knock

Abjo uploads some beats for sale and The Cold Knock is the cream of the crop. Sh*t, son! Potholes’ Abjo hasn’t wasted much time after releasing his wonderful EP The Art Of Refixing. The San Diego producer has taken to Soundcloud to upload a few beats for sale and after accidentally hitting the spacebar (or not, as Freud may suggest), I was sucked into yet…

Sampleface Five: Harmonic Samples

We look at harmonic samples for our Sampleface Five. I do love harmonic samples. You could catch a riff and transform it into an instrument or use it as a counter melody. The possibilities are endless. For our latest edition of Sampleface Five, we look at five quality examples of what can be done with harmonic samples by some of the best producers around. 1….

How Did I Miss That: AbJo – IfNot/YouAre…

Maybe we were too loved up, but we somehow missed AbJo’s “IfNot/YouAre…”, an intimate rework of OutKast’s Prototype. André 3000 and Big Boi may not be having a cosy love in as OutKast anytime soon but we can always rely on AbJo to flip a dope track into something even more beautiful. For Valentine’s Day, he flipped Prototype into “IfNot/YouAre…”. As one Soundcloud commenter said,…

MeLo-X – Mojitos and Little Dragon (prod. AbJo)

Sippin’ on mojitos and playing Little Dragon. That’s what MeLo-X enjoys in his new track, produced by AbJo. MeLo-X always keeps it fresh with his electronic-infused hip hop and Mojitos and Little Dragon is no exception. Produced by Sampleface favourite and Potholes alumnus AbJo, the relaxing synth chords and video game sounds in the background are just wonderful and MeLo-X comes with another catchy hook….

FreshVibez x SupaGroovalistic x BrookLille – SupaFresh Beats (Mixtape)

Don’t sleep on FreshVibez collaborative mixtape with SupaGroovalistic and BrookLille. Being busy with other Sampleface posts and developments of late, we kinda slept on this mixtape from our partners over in France. We can only apologise profusely for the oversight as the mixtape is fire! FreshVibez got together with fellow French blogs/zines SupaGroovalistic and BrookLille to present a selection of experimental hip-hop beats. The mixtape…
