From Audible Treats:

MP3: DJ JS-1 - "How We Think" Ft. Sick Jacken, Slaine, Sabac Red

The Song:

DJ JS-1 is in good spirits since the release of his latest album, No One Cares. So good, in fact, that he's giving out not one but two free tracks for fans to enjoy this week: his newest single, "How We Think," and a fresh studio mix of "Reppin' NY" by none other than the legendary DJ Premier.

JS-1's newest single, "How We Think," is mellow joint with but comes well equipped with rough undertones courtesy of featured artists Sick Jacken of Psycho Realm, Slaine of La Coka Nostra, and Sabac Red of Non Phixion. "I reached out to the homie DJ Muggs and asked him to speak to Sick Jacken," say JS-1. "Once Sick Jacken was down, I went to Slaine, who is one of my favorite artists, and then Sabac Red from Non-Phixion. DJ Eclipse helped everything go smoothly, too." Along with an unsettling guitar riff and a hard drum loop, the song's hook drives the message home. "I loved all their vocals but needed to come up with the perfect hook," says JS-1. "I liked the line 'You Know How We Think,' because it's quite obvious how myself and these MCs think. We do hardcore hip-hop, and never fold under the pressure to sell out and do cornball rap."

It's a tall task getting so many rappers involved with the making of one album, and so, just the same way JS-1 utilized the assistance of DJ Muggs and Eclipse for "How We Think," he called in the help of a special friend, DJ Premier, to get in touch with Lil' Fame and Bumpy Knuckles, who are both featured on "Reppin' NY" along with Joell Ortiz. Now, JS-1 is releasing a special mix and master of the song, done by DJ Premier himself. "Once the song was recorded and I laid the cuts down, Premier asked me if he could mix and master that song," explains JS-1. Busy schedules kept Premier's mix off the album, but, Premo recently sat down behind the boards and added his signature studio magic. "As a man of his word, and someone who truly respects and enjoys good hip-hop, Preem still took the time to mix it, just so we can blast it out to all the DJs and real hip-hop fans," says JS-1. "The mix is better now, of course. I can't thank him enough for his help."

DJ JS-1's new album, No One Cares, is now available via a joint venture between Fat Beats Distribution and JS-1's own Ground Original.

Video: Apollo Brown - "Tao Te Ching"


From Mello Music Group:

Video: Apollo Brown - "Tao Te Ching"

Apollo Brown's "Clouds" has been one of the most talked about instrumental projects of the year.  So, just before Apollo releases his new project with Hassaan Mackey (Daily Bread), he has decided to release a short animated feature to play as a companion to the "Clouds" track "Tao Te Ching".
 
"A Solitary Crane In Winter Snow Needs No Jewels"

The video, directed by Emrys Roberts, unravels at a laid back, easy pace.  First, Taoist mountains appear on yellowed parchment before calligraphic I-Ching symbols are drawn, slowly creating the entire Taoist wheel of hexagrams.  Finally, the short animated piece evolves from a spinning I-Ching wheel into a spiral galaxy, rotating amongst the stars.
