#101 – Animal Farm Told Me To

Have you heard of Animal Farm? And no, I’m not talking about the controversial (one-time banned) George Orwell novel. I’m talking about the Hip Hop group out of Portland, Oregon. If not then fret not. We have got a bit of a treat for you, as the five of them have kindly taken the time to do our little musical interview. But before you get to their choices, listen to their track ‘Test Of Time’ which features Talib Kweli who is easily one of my favourites. This song came to my attention thanks to the daily RCRD LBL mailout some time ago and it’s been getting a steady rotation since. A funky sample and a great lyric/flow adds up to a song that you will listen to plenty! We actually featured it a little while back, but seeing as we’re so generous here’s another listen.

The guys have just released their newest single and you can listen to it here. If you like it, then follow the link to their Soundcloud page and get it free.

Just after the drop we’ve got the guy’s choices and there are some right good eggs in there. I reckon my favourite is probably Fury’s choice. But I’m a sucker for Q-Tip… Off we go!

#90 – Summertime 2: The Mixtape

I stumbled across this a couple of days ago and it is sick! An hour of chilled Hip Hop that reeks of summer: gin and juice, sun, chilling in the park and some late, hazy nights. Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie have pulled out all the stops on this, selecting some amazing songs and mixing the whole thing to perfection. A couple of highlights are The Pharcyde, Spandau Ballet, Q-Tip and a classic by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. It’s been organised by the clothing brand Undercrwn, which I know nothing about but hearing this makes me want to buy their shit. And it’s a sequel (obviously), so if you like it then you can get the first mix on the same page.

Get the mixtape!
