MP3: Kensaye Russell's "My Downfall Remix" (B.I.G.)
"It was Biggie's passing a few weeks ago. Anyone that loves Hip-Hop today needs to pay dues to the King of Brooklyn. That's why as an avid Hip Hop fan I remixed one of his tracks, opting for the more chilled and atmospheric approach."

All produced by Steesh, featuring the amazing vocal talents of Eliza Lawson, Rockstep heavy weights Rossi Noise, grime and dubstep emcee Absorb & last but not least Lex One of Wizard Sleeve on the massive Throw Your Body.
This EP release serves as a build up in preparation for the 'May Contain Nuts EP' which will follow this release in a few months including tracks such as "Action Man" & "Get Wild Gan Mental"
CAFE JASS is a jazz hip-hop concept album dreamt up by Canadian emcee iLLvibe after he and L.S. met DowntownSoul producer Beat Thief whilst on a guerilla tour of Europe in 2010. Melding a live jazz ambience, Beat Thief's trademark soul-infused hip-hop sound, and mature rhymes from the two indie hip-hop vets, this is a cohesive album for the discerning listener.
With features on the album including US emcees Kwote1 (Chicago) and Yello Blac (Cali), as well as Canada's Mer and Rk ParX, not to mention DowntownSoul affiliates Non Applicable and Sam Steele, this is truly an international affair, with recording begun in London and since completed in Toronto and Hong Kong. Taking the idea of a live night at the vibrant but run-down Cafe Jass, the songs have an organic feel, interspersed with comedic snippets from a legendary Richard Pryor show.
