Stream "Resurgence" by Jigmastas DJ Spinna & Kriminul

By JR on 12:34 PM

Filed Under: , , ,

"Following closely behind last year’s expanded reissue of 2000’s ‘Grassroots‘, the New York duo of DJ Spinna & Kriminul present ‘Resurgence’, a long awaited album of previously unreleased material. Comprising tracks created between 2003 and the present day, ‘Resurgence’ represents the duo’s musical growth during a period where most of us assumed the Jigmastas project was on hold. From start to finish, ‘Resurgence’ is brimming over with soul thanks to Spinna’s distinctively languid boom-bap productions.

Rapper Kryminul is on fine form with his clever and witty brand of storytelling, which still stays close to the streets whilst keeping the subject matter varied and eclectic. Storming guest appearances come from Shabaam Saadique and Old World Disorder (Skam, Shadowman Boogie), both familiar names to Jigmastas fans. With the announcement of another brand new album ‘Stellar’ coming later in 2016, ‘Resurgence’ is a perfect opportunity to bring yourself up to speed with Jigmastas, just as they prepare to reclaim their rightful place at hip hop’s top table." - BBE Records

"Resurgence" by Jigmastas now available on vinyl here at UGHH or CD and digital at Amazon.

AOTN Releases Lost '78 Disco-Funk & Soul LP by The Band Fruit

"The Fruit Band's fleeting existence was only recently revealed by the discovery of a few unsold copies of their sole 1978 single,Say It, which quickly became a cult showpiece for savvy DJs and collectors. Athens of the North has since reached out to Cypress Studios of Jacksonville, Florida and discovered a complete album of the group's stylish, dancefloor-smashing funk and deep disco on tape, unreleased for over 30 years. Vinyl is presented in a Handmade cardboard Tip-On Sleeve as would have been used at the time as only the best will do."


Enjoy the love and happiness throughout this revived gem! This funky LP is currently sold out at AOTNS Bandcamp but you can grab the vinyl or CD here at Juno Records.

"Stretch mixes some old and new joints on here, and does some interesting blends. Featured guests include Kazo from Zhigge along with Fruitkwan from Stesasonic. Tape 2 has Timbo King & Spark 950, who later became Royal Fam. Late in the show, Bobbito pulls out 4 demos for a 'demo battle.' The tape runs out before the callers vote on a winner, but there's damn near the full 4 hour show on this one. Peace to the philaflav heads for taking the time to make out the track list. "

MC Approach & The Basement Khemists Unite For Refreshing Hip Hop

By JR on 2:58 PM

Filed Under: , ,

"Here's a remix that 2/3's of the Legendary "Basement Khemist" crew laced me with for my "Ultra Proteus" project back in 2003. I watched Joc Max make the beat live on the SP 1200 during the session. It honestly took him no time at all. Once the beat was cooked, mixed and ready to rock, I knew i needed the homie Taha to complete the vision. Thanx to my ace Johnny Quest for making this recording session possible. Once i do a track with J. Lee my recording circle will be complete!"

Peace & Love,
