Bigfoot - Ilya Santana - Retrospective Recordings

Ilya Santana in a playful disco mood, with this EP of lively, cosmic curiosities. Includes remix versions from Rayko, Thomas Jackson and more.

Seventh Kingdom - Tasadi & Aryas feat Christina Novelli - Lunary Recordings

The air apparent to Tiff Lacey’s First Lady of Vocal Trance crown, here comes that girl Christina Novelli again. Her vocals and lyrics penetrate deep into ‘Seventh Kingdom’ and backed by Tasadi & Aryas’s elegiacally string-strewn drop and the wonderful note movement of its sequential lift, ‘Seventh Kingdom’ connects fast enough. A fine release for Kentucky’s new-on-the-scope Lunary Recordings.

Lonely & Cold - Apollo Brown feat Roc Marciano - Mello Music Group

A sluggish gritty beat beautifully overlaid by myriad little tangles of guitar and soulful '60s keys, culled from what sounds like Memphis and Kingston sources — with such a compelling backdrop Roc & Apollo would be well within their rights to be lazy, but their rhymes are thought-provoking, full of mysterious shadow and blinding light, possessed of a Wu-style internal coherence and external oddity. From Apollo's new album 'Thirty Eight', which if it keeps up these standards of wordplay and production should be a summer essential. Check it.

Six Degrees - Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD - Lex

You know that feel when you're walking down a dark alley? Don't turn around. Don't turn around cos you'll panic yourself, and then you'll start running, and then you'll be beyond scared and into pure terror. Spectral, creepy, eerie, that ol' Eric B 'Mahogany' beat used to spookily suggestive effect, Ghost and Danny Brown swapping some truly mindbending rhymes, the whole track holding itself within itself, breathing and sweating like a real living thing, a presence in your day you can't shake from the memory. One of the most M.R.Jamesian hip-hop tracks I've ever heard. Superb.
