Bones The Beat Head & Maple Syrup - Nighthawks - 2016

DBT009 Tape - 2016 - Dirty Beauty

"The German-Russian alliance of boom bap connoisseurs and jazz enthusiasts "Bones The Beat Head" (Germany) and "Maple Syrup" (Russia) created a fine instrumental experience that will give you the atmosphere of the city at night. 
Each track is inspired by different nighttime impressions such as calm areas with empty streets and sporadic street lighting or eerie abandoned places, but also the vivid nightlife that takes place in the city center where crowded bars and neon signs are dominating the scenery. "

Pete Rock & CL Smooth - They Reminice Over You (T.R.O.Y) / Sraighten It Out - 2016

7" - 2016 - Get On Down 

"These two songs are taken from the group’s legendary first full-length from 1992, Mecca & The Soul Brother. Originally, both were their own 12-inch singles, but for this special, first-time-ever 7-Inch release, they are paired together. “They Reminisce Over You” – a tribute to their late friend Trouble T-Roy (a member of Heavy D’s crew) – is one of the most beloved hip-hop tracks of the ‘90s, and rightfully so. Grooving very deeply over a filtered bassline and a now-ingrained Tom Scott saxophone riff (“Today”), CL Smooth lives up to his moniker, weaving various tales and lessons about family and friends. His status as a storytelling MC remains underrated, but here it remains proudly on display.

“Straighten It Out,” although not the runaway smash that “They Reminisce” was, is equally emotional and soulful. Again over a mid-tempo groove, and again with Pete’s trademark warm horn samples, CL explained in Check the Technique, “On [part of] the song, I was talking about sampling, and I was basically reacting to how everything was such a procedure when you had to clear stuff. They didn’t seem to care about how their music affected anyone else, they just wanted money. So it was just something that needed to be straightened out. Older artists thought that us younger cats were ripping them off, but it wasn’t like that. It was a tribute.” So here’s the math: one classic hip-hop group, two memorable singles, one killer 7-Inch. Case closed."
