Viktor Van River – Triumph Of Unconscious

[BSOG0073]

Viktor Van River

“Triumph Of Unconscious”

Today we welcome a great new addition to our humble little label… Viktor Van River. Fans of the terrific Bulgarian label Dusted Wax Kingdom will likely know the name and are probably already fans. With his debut full-length album, Viktor wanted to expand his sound a bit beyond the sound that Dusted Wax focuses on, so he followed in the footsteps of his buddy, Cutside, and came to blocSonic.

Ten songs deep, Triumph of Unconscious is a tightly focused album with a big sound. With the global political landscape and upheaval (especially that which we’re seeing happen in the US and UK), it’s no surprise that there are political themes running throughout.

Extra huge shout out to Viktor for being a part of what we do here. Welcome to the blocSonic fam!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do.

KIN/LUCK

“Antithesis”

Today I’m happy to present to you, KIN/LUCK, another incredible project that finds BADLUCK partnering with a great new addition to blocSonic… Kin. Hailing from Burlington, Vermont, Kin delivers his own brand of lyrical dexterity. Together he and Luck deliver a stupendous new album, giving fans new and old that classic hip-hop… an embarassing backslap to the mainstream, no doubt.

“Antithesis” is BADLUCK’s 3rd project in as many months that finds him partnering with talents of such a high caliber and delivering hip-hop of such excellence, it’s simply mind-blowing. I hope it’s the first of many projects by KIN/LUCK.

Luck, you’re a hip-hop god in the making… you already know I’m a fan. Kin… incredible work… welcome to the blocSonic fam. I can’t wait to further introduce bloc’s listeners to your talent. Thanks also goes out to all producers and featured artists… you all shined immensely.

Tha Silent Partner – Platters, Act 7: Tha Anniversary Plate

[BSOG0068]

Tha Silent Partner

“Platters, Act 7: Tha Anniversary Plate”

On December 24th, 2007, Gregory “Tha Silent Partner” Davis released the first volume in what would become an enduring series of music release that altogether has accumulated an incredible 100,000+ downloads. In our little Creative Commons licensed / Netlabel sphere of music, those kinds of numbers are hard to come by. If, as an artist, you’re getting numbers like that, you’re doing something right. Of course, TSP is. It’s difficult for a music producer to develop “a sound”, yet, that’s exactly what he’s done.

Act 7 continues the legacy with ten solid grooves for funkin’… or whatever… download… turn it on… bump it loud… enjoy.

Ever since I first heard Act 1 on Jamendo and decided to include “No Mas” on “netBloc Volume 11 (The Raw and the Cooked)”, it was clear to me that Tha Silent Partner was a music artist that I wanted to keep up with. I was later thrilled when he showed interest in having his music being released at blocSonic It’s been a pleasure and an honor to be able to help spread the word about TSP over the years! It’s also incredible that it’s already going on ten years since he kicked off Platters the Platters series. I look forward to the next ten. TSP, thank you, sir!

Luck & Doc

“Take Time (Maxi Single)”

Today we’ve got something for you that, in a way, began back in 2016 when BADLUCK collaborated with C-Doc on “Freak of Nature” for the dope collaborative album DocSonic. Fast-forward to this year and both decided to join forces again to deliver more fresh hip-hop.

With Luck in the middle of a flurry of recording for multiple projects and C-Doc coming off of production work for Public Enemy’s new album (which has recently released for free online), it’s incredible that they both had the time to make such a collaboration happen!

Luck & Doc make such a great team and I can’t wait to share the album with you! However, for the time being, enjoy the first single… Take Time. The album, Live At The Wake, is scheduled for release on Netlabel Day, July 14th.

Mad props to BADLUCK & C-Doc for collaborating to deliver something special for hip-hop heads to enjoy. There’s so much to dislike about the internet these days, but collaborations such as this are an example of what’s so amazing about it.

Berg Dorf – Blow Cuts

[mfm17]

Berg Dorf

“Blow Cuts”

‘Blow Cuts’ is a collection of raw hip-hop beats with very little embellishment. They provide a blank canvas for imagination. Ideally, the listener should fill the gaps. The aim is to fuel a contemplative state of mind. These tracks were made effortlessly, during a state of flow, and it shows. Most of the samples used have been collected over the years from movies and various other sources. As an artist, Ι’m glad to have managed to produce something coherent in form and content. I enjoy visiting my Blow Cuts from time to time—when the mood is right—and Ι hope you will, too.

Torin Bell – Rain EP

Torin Bell

“Rain EP”

Rain EP by alternative hip hop/electronica producer Torin Bell, is a collection of three short instrumentals filled with peace, tranquility and joy. The relaxed, unhurried pace of the music, playful melodies and unique chord progressions, definitely make you rest and catch the moment. Amazing tunes that stay with you long after listening.

“The project is centered around water and each track uses the rain within it’s backdrop to provide a soothing white noise alongside various synth waves to create the coming and going of the rain in the spring.
I wanted to create a atmosphere of peace and the rain usually helps in doing so.”(Torin Bell)

Graphic Antics

“What Does It Mean?”

In 2016 Ant The Symbol combined forces with fellow Richmond, VA (now Portland, Maine based) artist Graphic Melee to record and release an album. With Ant in control on the beats and Melee rockin’ the mic… Graphic Antics was born. Their first album Uh Oh… provided them with a strong base to build from… one which they would use to full effect this year.

Today we have the pleasure of releasing their sophomore album What Does It Mean? that blasts off from the first album’s base, finding Melee and Ant hitting their stride as a creative team, delivering something special to their fans and new listeners. With Ant’s dense textures and complex rhythms along with Melee’s strong delivery and lyrical content… there’s a lot here for heads to dig.

Many thanks to Graphic Melee and Ant The Symbol for delivering the best GA album yet as your first for the bloc! Melee… welcome to the blocSonic fam!

“SIX ONNA 7 (Episode 2)”

A little over five years ago in March 2012, we released the debut digital fortyFive release. Shortly thereafter Tha Silent Partner reinvented the format with the release of his first SIX ONNA 7 release. He used the format to pack in 6 brief, tasty instrumental gems. Since then he’s continued to release more installments in the series, all of which can be found via this handy collection. He also gave his blessing to other artists releasing their own, which has allowed both Nodus1 and C-Doc to drop their own installments!

Today we’ve got the latest installment in the series! This time around C-Doc gives us Episode 2! It contains the six dopest, baddest beats you’ll hear today. Snag your copy right now.

“Graveyard Shift / Papa Made Out Like a Bandit”

f you’ve been keeping up with blocSonic over the past year or so, you might have seen the name Timezone LaFontaine pop up as a guest and/or remixer. You might have even wondered if he’s going to drop his own releases. Well, let me set your mind at ease and present to you Graveyard Shift / Papa Made Out Like a Bandit, the first single from his forthcoming album Soul Night (set to drop April 18th).

TZLF’s unique hip-hop sound is at once modern and a throwback. If you remember the time when rappers were known as EMCEEs and hip-hop was a creative and varied genre, you’re going to dig this. If all you know is what’s now known as “hip-hop” or “trap”, then it’s time to broaden your horizons.

Huge shout out and thanks goes out to Timezone LaFontaine for the dope new music! Welcome to the blocSonic fam!

Cutside

“Point Of No Return”

In March of 2016, we were all introduced to a formidable trip-hop producer hailing from Crimea and going by the name of Cutside. His blocSonic debut EP Paramnesia made a lasting impression with his sophisticated and powerful sound. Today he returns with a long player that’ll knock your teeth out and laugh at you.

The instant that you’re barraged by the artillery beats and Unkle Rasta’s menacing rhymes of track 1 “Welcome To Reality”, you come to the conclusion that you’re listening to something very special. That feeling remains throughout. “Point Of No Return”, indeed.

Bump it loud… and enjoy.

Regenerated Headpiece – Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE

[BSXE0017]

Regenerated Headpiece

“Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE”

Can you believe that today we drop our 17th Xtended Edition release? Word… this time around we introduce blocSonic listeners to the completely unique and dope sounds of Regenerated Headpiece (or RHP).

So who are RHP? Well, they’re a hip-hop hybrid musical outfit that I first discovered while doing work for SLAMjamz back in the early 00s. As the story goes with a couple other blocSonic artists that you’ve come to know… I designed covers for a few of their digital releases. When I first heard them I was immediately impressed by their sound. It’s one that’s really hard to pin down because it’s so unique to them. However, their story goes back a little further. They first burst onto New York City’s live music scene in the late 1990s and have been compared to recording artists ranging from A Tribe Called Quest to “Weird” Al Yankovic. Their core members are producer/MC Phon-X (a.k.a. Headsnack), lyricist Shred Lexicon, and DJ Exfyl. Other members of the Regenerated Headpiece family include DJ Sykopath, producer/MC Old Yist, and various session musicians.

Souvenirs, Novelties & Party Tricks XE is a re-release of their collection of rarities that included remixes by RHP friends and fam. For our Xtended Edition we also brought on blocSonic fam to remix a few joints! RHP also added a couple extra bonus cuts to make this a 3 Disc set!

The collaboraters involved in this project are extensive… musicians, producers, DJs & singers… the RHP extended fam include… Allison Breunig, Bass Killah, Brash, DJ Mockstar, Don Q, ICBM, ILLUS, MenAnt, Milkdrop, Phashara, Phon Juan, Rich Lupes, Slim Waites, Sneaky Pete, Steve “SG the Producer” Garcia, Taylor Jordan & Venomous 2000. If that’s not enough… blocSonic fam also represented… C-Doc, Cutside, Donnie Ozone, dustmotes, The Impossebulls, mGee, Mported Flows & Pot-C!

A very special thanks to Headsnack, Shred Lexicon and DJ Exfyl for being part of what blocSonic does. I’ve long been a fan and am thrilled to have you guys on board… welcome to the blocSonic fam! Mega thanks also goes out to everyone involved!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Ant The Symbol – You Are Here: Midnight

[BSMX0148]

Ant The Symbol

“You Are Here: Midnight”

Back in September we released an amazing EP by Ant The Symbol called You Are Here: Downtown (if you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure you do). Well, it turns out that that EP was the first in a series and today we’ve got the second installment, You Are Here: Midnight!

While listening, it becomes clear why these EPs are part of the same series. There’s a certain sonic character to them that reveals a music artist whose sound is maturing. There’s also a sense of a certain deterministic experimentation.

Whether you’ve heard Ant’s music before or not, be sure that you check it out now. What he’s creating these days is something really special.

Yo, Ant… you did it again… I think you’re channeling greater forces! Simply incredible.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Cheese N Pot TA2MI Presents_ Cheese N Pot-C

Cheese N Pot-C

“TA2MI Presents_ Cheese N Pot-C”

Hey kids… do you like beats and rhymes? Are you ready for some dope new music? Well we’ve got a treat for you today! We’ve got a brand new EP by those crazy Japan-based Canadians Cheese N Pot-C. It’s not an ordinary CNP EP… either. This one features the incredible beats of Jodo Shinshuu Buddhist monk / DJ / Producer / beatboxer… TA2MI. That’s right, a Buddhist monk who can rock those funky beats.

CNP and TA2MI go back to 2001 when a mutual friend introduced them. In 2011, TA2MI was featured in the documentary KanZeOn and is now set to launch his whirlwind interview and show tour. Today’s release is a taste of a full-length project that’s set to drop in 2017.

A very special thank you goes out to TA2MI, HighSnow, Long John & Cheese N Pot-C for this dope new EP! I look forward to the LP next year!

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Ant The Symbol – You Are Here: Downtown

[BSMX0141]

Ant The Symbol

“You Are Here: Downtown”

Back at the end of August, Ant The Symbol sent me a few new songs to check out. I downloaded them and listened… like, whoa! I instantly felt that the seven songs I was listening to were the most inspired that he’d created thus far, as The Symbol. Of course I had to release them, so that you can enjoy, too.

With You Are Here: Downtown Ant manages to take his downtempo sound into new territory. In doing so, he has moments that reminds you of Aphex Twin and others that could be what Art of Noise would sound like if they tried to make music like him. Moments of humor, adventure, bliss and beauty all come together in an immediate and addictive set. IMO, he’s hit the nail on the head… HIS sound has been defined… maybe he’ll surprise us with more goodies in the coming months? I sure hope so. In the meantime, enjoy this EP. Wear out your hard-drives, playing it.

Please Ant, don’t hurt ’em! Jeebus, man… this was an ill surprise. I think the kids are gonna dig it.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!

Bainmass – Winter Ep

[IYE16]

Bainmass

“Winter Ep “

The beat teacher is back, an electronic craftsman with a different from the previous ep always on In Your Ears. Carmine aka Bainmass uses fewer samples but always produces powerful things, phrasing of beats that will make us move happy. None voice is needed on these rhythms, so they are beautiful. A different vortex from the first, but always sweet, less electronic, but hot as ever, because in Bainmass sun and rapadopa never fail.

Torna un maestro del beat, un artigiano elettronico con un ep differente rispetto al precedente sempre su In Your Ears. Carmine aka Bainmass usa meno campionamenti ma produce sempre cose potentissime, fraseggi di beats che ci faranno muovere contenti.Non è necessaria la voce su questi ritmi, talmente sono belli. Un vortice diverso dal primo, ma sempre dolcissimo, meno elettronico ma caldissimo come sempre, perchè in Bainmass il sole e la rapadopa non mancano mai.

The Impossebulls – Five By Five I: Wrath

[BSMX0139]

The Impossebulls

“Five By Five I: Wrath”

Today I’m so psyched to present to you Five By Five I: Wrath, the first of five new EPs that The Impossebulls will be dropping from now until December!

After the release of Everything Has Changed; Nothing Is Different, the Bulls originally intented on creating a series of five EPs, each with five songs, but that eventually evolved into a new album and the five EPs! Thus began the idea of a six month release schedule! So Bulls fans… get ready… more dopeness to come! What… you’re just discovering the Bulls? Well, dig… check this out and then check out their back catalog.

Many thanks goes out to The Impossebulls for continuing to bring that classic hip-hop in this era of mumble “rappers”, trappers and twerkers. Perhaps some day boom bap will once again be considered hot. Davy J… I hope that your generation can rectify the situation… your dad is doing a good job teaching you… perhaps other dads are teaching their youth, as well. Word.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do.

The Impossebulls – The Devils You Know

[BSOG0057]

The Impossebulls

“The Devils You Know”

Today The Impossebulls return with their first album of all new material since 2014’s impressive “Everything Has Changed; Nothing Is Different”! The new album, “The Devils You Know” is another dope selection of joints that simultaneously take you back to that classic boom bap sound, while also remaining fresh and new.

As with the previous album, The Bulls enlist a little help from good friends and legends… the most notable of which is one of the founding members of the great Stetsasonic and one of the most distinctive voices in hip-hop… Daddy-O! Of course that’s not all… the great Kyle Jason lends his voice to the album… as does the talented Anime Oscen. Last, but surely not least… our own The Honorable Sleaze drops a verse!

This dope new album isn’t all, though… in the coming five months, The Bulls are dropping the 5×5 series of EPs. One each month featuring more new music! Also, very soon, fans will be able to purchase “Devil’s Work”… a limited edition box set containing the album and all five EPs, so fans don’t have to wait to get all that fresh music into their ears! We’ll let you know when that becomes available. For now… we hope you enjoy the new album.

A very sincere thank you to The Impossebulls and all collaborators for delivering yet another underground / independent / netlabel hip-hop classic. Sleepers will sleep… those who are woke will hear it. blocSonic’s going to continue to wake ’em. Word.

Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do.

C-Doc – Quit

[BSMX0133]

C-Doc

“Quit”

After a month of keeping things rather quiet, we’re back to kick things off for July! Today we’ve got “Quit”, the brand new single from C-Doc’s forthcoming instrumental album Do Androids Die For Electric Sins?!

The album, along with new releases by Ant The Symbol, Donnie Ozone, Tha Silent Partner, The Impossebulls & mGee, is set to drop on Thursday, July 14th, also known as Netlabel Day! On that same day we also launch our brand new CC-BY licensed samplePack series… get ready!

Now back to today’s single… with it and the album C-Doc wanted to explore a more electronic sound to go with a theme that sonically pays homage to one of his favorite films, “Blade Runner”. So, BR fans, get ready to pour over every detail to catch every reference! Even if you’re not a fan of the film, the music is dope… so check it.

Thanks to C-Doc for yet again going above and beyond and delivering some incredible new music!

Nor – Bicchiere Mezzo Pieno

[IYE11]

Nor

“Bicchiere Mezzo Pieno “

We are happy and honoured to have Nor in our label. Nor is a young rapper from Savona, a city that got a good names in rap, like Dsa Commando, Overkill Army and others. Here we had a little talk with hi,e, and Nor confirmed to be a true rapper, never obvious. He talks well, but his music speaks better, rap without redemption for nothing and no one. Show no mercy.
