In preparation of the rapidly arriving new Sole and the Skyrider Band full length Hello Cruel World (out July 19th on Fake Four Inc), Sole aka Tim Holland unveiled the free release of his newest mixtape Nuclear Winter Vol 2. It's available for free via the Sole website in exchange for an email address, and features guests Kool A.D. of Das Racist, Mac Lethal, Pictureplane, B. Dolan, LuckyIAM, and many more. IMPOSE Magazine broke the news, and premiered the searing "Coke Rap" track as an exclusive download as well, the mega-collaboration between Sole, Kool A.D., Pictureplane, and Fake Four labelhead Ceschi Ramos. In fact, collaborations have bene the name of the game for Sole of late. Guests on Hello Cruel World include Lil B THE BASED GOD, Pictureplane, Xiu Xiu, and Sage Francis, amongst others, while the first single "Hello Cruel World" was given the remix treatment from former Anticon label mates Alias and Yoni Wolf from WHY? . A track called "Pianos Falling" also surfaced, which was his collaboration with Black Moth Super Rainbow's Tobacco.

More info on Sole & the Skyrider Band 'Hello Cruel World':
While much was made of Sole aka Tim Holland leaving the Anticon empire he helped create, there's a refreshing, new found confidence and focus not seen since his now-classic albums Selling Live Water and Bottle of Humans. Some proof of that can be found in the fact that he's assembled an army of the most exciting voices in music right now to be apart of the new record. The new album drops July 19th on cd, vinyl, and digital via Fake Four Inc., with the European release being handled by Equinox Records. With Hello Cruel World, Sole returns with the Skyrider Band for his first full length since the split with Anticon, and his third album with the Skyrider Band. Listeners will notice that Sole has adopted the most deliberate flow of his career-- abandoning the freewheeling, hyper-timed assaults of his earlier work in favor of a biting clarity and all around accessibility. The record draws on the wealth of his newly found freedom, tapping into the positivity and ethics of a DIY tradition he has always known and embraced throughout his career - transforming his past cynicism into a call to arms and personal empowerment. The Skyrider Band itself has been similarly transformed; trading in their dense soundscapes and organic touchstones for an impeccable attention to detail and more studio-centric productions.

Free EP: Drums & Ammo - Vol. 1: Extra Clip


From Audible Treats:

Free EP: Drums & Ammo - Vol. 1: Extra Clip

Following Instrumental LP, D&A Drops EP Featuring NorCal's Best Up-And-Coming Rappers

The EP:

In April, West Coast production collective Drums & Ammo released a free instrumental album, Vol. 1. The album saw D&A stepping from behind the scenes, putting names and faces behind all of the production work they've done, a collection of tracks old and new that have earned them the ear of artists including Raphael Saadiq to Keak Da Sneak, Del The Funky Homosapien to DaVinci, Moe Green, Messy Marv, Bambu, DaVinci, and more.

And now, the foursome comprised of 6Fingers, Al Jieh, Ammbush, and REL are releasing Vol. 1: Extra Clip, their new EP and a follow-up to their recent instrumental album. While the album found the producers stepping into the foreground, this new EP places them back in a collaborative mode, working again with a variety of up-and-coming talent from around the California, and particularly Northern California, something important to the producers. "There's a lot of talent up here in the Bay Area and throughout the NorCal area that goes overlooked," explains Al Jieh. "With this EP, and a lot of the work we do in general, we wanted to help shine the light on some of that talent."

For those already familiar with Drums & Ammo's extensive production credits, Vol. 1: Extra Clip offers a dose of familiarity with tracks like DaVinci's "Blame Game" and Bambu's "We Mobb In That...," and others, while also offering up never-before-heard songs, like "Now," produced by 6Fingers and featuring Vallejo rapper TopKat, or "Addicted," a soulful track produced by Al Jieh that features DaVinci and soul crooner Rae Rosero. "For listeners that are still getting familiar with our sound, Extra Clip is a good example of the diversity we bring to the table," says REL, who will be releasing his own instrumental album this summer. "It's West Coast music, but the sound is global."

From Park Street PR:

Video: Fdot1 - "Gal Ah Bawl" - NSFW?

In true non-conformist Fdot1 style the video is not the cliché booty shaking girls in thongs that's been done to death, instead, he stars in a V-rated (1/2 X-rated) In-Flo-mercial selling a "toy" to make di gal dem bawl out Flooooo. This saucy video from director Nick Light is guaranteed to have you laughing by the water machine tomorrow!
