Talking about 2018 releases, we are obliged and proud to mention one of the best releases which came from the country where you believe it’s been snowing all time and bears walking the streets. That is not true! Summertime here as hot as anywhere else and g-funk is dope as anywhere. “From Russia With West” is the project that filled with the talented people like Popovski, WazAp, UGN, Ipo Crita, L-Tune, our homie Loco, etc… G Wylx (of Big Black Boots) executively-produced the whole thing as the movement’s veteran with more than 20 years of experience behind his back. Aleks Fima made all beats and they are bumping! It is very solid project from start to finish. Y’all heard projects from Japan, Poland, Italy, France and even more exotic places, now it is time to give this one a try, you can decide for yourself by listening to the whole release by the video in the frame below. Also need to mention special guest appearances by MC Eiht and Mellow Man Ace. So if you down for smth really smooth, fresh and new, support the project HERE and HERE.
Damn, we’ve been waiting for this one to drop from the beginning of the year. Actually, some of us were expecting solo from Rich Garcia since the early-mid 90’s when we first heard him on classic tracks on iconic albums such as Smile Now, Die Later, Stone Cold World, Eastside Drama, etc… The late Toker of Brownside said “he’s my Mexican Nate Dogg” to describe his sound.
The digital release was already out, however the CD release was about to follow, and finally it got dropped on BROWNSIDE13.COM, the official online store of Toker’s Brownside label. We have already got our CD’s in hand and listened to this album banging it to the fullest: it’s the great soul album (flavored by some live guitar and saxophone parts) with some tracks featured by Toker, Wicked, Lil Danger, Lady Jade, Lil Tokes (son of Toker), Chris Gunn & Howard E. Scott.
You can pick up an option if you want a signed CD from a legend himself or just regular CD, it’s up to you. Physical release contains bonus tracks that you won’t find on digital release. All we want is just to let y’all know so you won’t miss this banger, check the videos below:
VS Productions, the well-known production duo from France (which consists of Venom & Sovan), dropped Tha Last Play – the very much anticipated final compilation album of their trilogy that was started by The Playtime & continued by The Playground. Though, the production on Tha Last Play was predominantly handled by Sovan, however, some tracks were co-produced by Venom, J.Locc, Tony Beatmaker, Dish Mothafunk, Laidback, RTN. The featured guests names on this dope album are quite impressive: Daz Dillinger, OG Daddy V, Dazzie Dee, Tha Chill (of CMW), Butch Cassidy, AMG, Foesum, Quictamac, Eastwood, Hobo, Stalin, Dogg Master, Winfree, Lil Woofy Woof, Loesta, Tha Hookstah, Bossolo, Delux, GFunk, Chag G & Jovan Benson.
There are 2 versions of the CD: 1st and 10th tracks on the “Sneaker” version (issued in Digipak) are Remixes of the original tracks which are found only on the “Car” version (issued in Jewel Case), however, each of them have 17 tracks without any intro’s and outro’s. So, basically, both versions are the must haves for a collection, also, they would get rare pretty soon due to the very limit pressings (200 copies of each).
One of our most favorite labels, Diggy Down Recordz this time are back at it with a highly anticipated sophomore full-length album by the Japanese disco icon, T-Groove aka Yuki Takahashi.
