Progressive soul, hip-hop and electronic music

AKG K 240 Semi-Open Studio Headphones

Great for DJs!

"The new K 240 Studio delivers even wider dynamic range and higher sensitivity than its well-known and widely-used predecessor. The secret to the semi-open K 240 Studio's sound quality is the new XXL transducers in acoustically tuned vented enclosures with circumaural (around the ear) pads. The circumaural pads envelope your ears nicely and reward you with smooth, solid bass and well-balanced, articulate mids and highs."

GB Interprets His Contemporaries

Credit to Illmami @ Soulbounce for posting this. I was huge fan of GB’s Soundtrack For Sunrise album waaay back in 2004 but hadn’t heard much from GB since. Not sure if that’s because he wasn’t up to much, or I just wasn’t up on it. Either way I was excited to see that this...

B. Bravo - Midnite

B. Bravo – Midnite

Sometimes you just hear a track and love it practically from note 1. This is one such track. B. Bravo is my new obsession. He makes some soulful, bumpin’ future soulistic type beats – as if J. Dilla and Prefuse 73 had a musical lovechild. His label, Fritenite describe his sounds as “popping analog synth...

Emo-Soul from Theophilus London - This Charming Mixtape

Emo-Soul from Theophilus London – This Charming Mixtape

A little while ago we highlighted London’s excellent “Cold Pillow” track and now he has just dropped his “This Charming Mixtape” download. This sees London delving more into the electro/nu wave side of things. This coupled with his pleading vocal intonations, nerd-punk style, and generally dark-hued outlook require a whole other genre. Emo-soul I’m calling...

Stereotree Presents: Beat Heroes Collection Vol 2 By Tayreeb

Well dang, talk about coming outta nowhere. An email landed in my inbox over the holidays with a link to another free producer mixtape/compilation thingy. I dutifully downloaded it but only recently got around to listening. Well I’m glad I didn’t let this one slip through the net. Stereotree is a French blog that seems...
