This time we got some very special G-Funk release to speak on: Marv – Island Cruisin’. It’s coming from Dumaguete city / Philippines, however, it was fully produced by Laidback (the French producer who’s been residing in Dublin, Ireland) & it’s the first album on his own label called “Laidback Sounds”. It’s interesting that Laidback and Marv met together through their common friend Hotnixx, a famous local rapper in Phillipines, and it took them a year before they finished this album. All in all, it did turn out to be a real dope album with a summertime mood all the way though, and it feels like being present on some tropical island while listening to the whole joint. Laidback did a great job on production which is truly original without any sampling whatsoever.
The guests include Enois Scroggins, Winfree, Collarossi, Knowa Lazarus, Aika Zabala, Hotnixx, Margo Lombard, Soo Smooth and Sick P.
The CD hardcopies (real replicated CD’s, not CD-R’s) are already in stock at available with Laidback in Ireland, from where he ships worldwide. Get at Laidback himself on his Facebook or his email email@example.com to order this dope album.

Some of ya’ll might have already heard Pimp Counsel on Joh Joh Music – Good Times Album (released in 2017), where they had 4 tracks on it. An American rap duo Pimp Counsel consists of King Kane Slimm & Caddi Mane. Hailing from the crime ridden streets of Flint (MI), it was rumored a couple of street Pimps had a Natural Gift of Gab. They preach pimp principles in a harsh and poetic term they refer to as Pimp-Hop. No wonder that they were discovered by Tweed Cadillac of Penthouse Players Clique.
This time they came with an album titled We The Pimpsfully produced by Joh Joh Music from France. Consisting of 21 tracks, this album is a pleasurable listen overall with all the pimpish stories by King Kane Slimm & Caddi Mane. It features such guest OG Daddy V, Enois Scroggins, Hic Box (talkbox), Bootz Rothchylde, Fleetwood Tha Fool, URG7 and others.

One of our most favorite labels, Diggy Down Recordz, has been really active recently relentlessly dropping some real nice vinyl and CD releases. This time they’re back at it with a highly anticipated debut full-length album by the Japanese disco icon, T-Groove aka Yuki Takahashi.

The album is 70 minutes long and densely packed up with modern disco joints that would be perfect for any disco party or dance floor. T-Groove produced tracks feature guests like B.Thompson, Winfree, Diane Marsh, Leon Beal, Enois Scroggins, The Precious Lo’s, Jovan, Sammy and others.
