WEEK STARTING 22 Dec

Genre pick of the week Cover of Def Mask by Divine Styler.

Divine Styler

Def Mask

The man they once called 'the Jimi Hendrix of Hip Hop' has retuned with what we feel is his strongest work to date. Over a decade since his highly acclaimed 'Directrix' long player dropped on Mo Wax, Divine Styler now steps up with his fourth studio album 'Def Mask' a dystopian / sci-fi concept album executed in the style of Blade Runner. Delivering highly charged, well crafted, gritty electronics with trademark lyrical intellect. Heavy synths battle crushing snares layered with futuristic verse, it's a killer, but it's also a cerebral breath of fresh air. For those unaware of the artist, Divine Styler first entered the frame as a member of Ice T’s Rhyme Syndicate. He has worked with DJ Shadow, House of Pain, Swollen Members, Quannum, Daedalus to name a few. Available in a limited edition double vinyl gatefold LP & CD with stunning artwork from renowned urban artist Will Barras.

Crosley

Record Player CR6020A Revolution - Turquoise

    Taking the record player "out of the box", Crosley's Revolution turntable truly fits the word in every way. It is a turntable of firsts.

    The first battery powered Crosley turntable and the first with a platter smaller than a teacup saucer. Where other record players must be kept in their designated place, the Revolution practially begs to join you on every journey. Users can tote this two speed turntable with them to vinyl swaps, to a friend's house, or record digging trips to charity shops and flea markets.

    Featuring a USB hookup for easy analogue to digital transfer, the Crosley Revolution will allow users to free their favorites from the grooves for digital enjoyment across a variety of devices.

    This small but mighty turntable also features a headphone jack, and a pair of earbud headphones.

    Mandrill / Curiosity Killed The Cat

    Jungle Mango / Name And Number - Naughty NMX Rerubs

    The second release from Dusty Donuts cooks up summer in the winter with two Native Tongues inspired edits. Naughty NMX currently residing in Hamburg via London and Berlin, brings his classic b-boy style to the table on production duties. On side A we have 'Jungle Mango', which takes Mandrill's 1970s afro-tinted funk breaker 'Mango Meat' as its base layer, throwing in a sample from Grandmaster Flash & Melle Mel's 'White Lines' along the way. A nod to the days of instinctive rhythms and happy go lucky dancefloors. The inspiration for De La Soul's 'Ring Ring Ring (Ha Ha Hey)' ('Name And Number' by 80s blue-eyed soul-jazz poppers Curiosity Killed The Cat no less) gets reconstructed with De La hip hop beats - get it? If not, then I’ll, get back, to you.
