GRADE

E.C. Illa

Grade School Dropout

Nice slice of Chicago rap history here with a limited white vinyl release of E.C. Illa's Kanye produced cutz "Strugglin'" and "Mask and Pump". Produced by none other than trainer mogul and celebrated political thinker Kanye West, just before he hit it big with the College Dropout LP on Jay-Z's Rocc-A-Fella. As you'd expect from '02 Kanye, we're in peak Chipmunk Soul territory, all smooth grooves given that sweet MPC bump to compliment Illa's flow and lyrical dexterity.

STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Limited seven-inch Grade School Dropout hits all the right spots, the production from legendary Kanye West is woven in with Dilla-esque beats. Brought back from the depths of 2008 this is what you need to be listening to!

Diffuser

Making The Grade

New York band Diffuser teamed up with producer Mark Trombino to record a set of quirky punky pop songs that should appeal to fans of the Drive-Thru sound and bands like Jimmy Eat World, Blink-182, Finch and Brand New.

Grade

Headfirst, Straight To Hell

Wrapped in a vision of a tormented Hell, with dismembered limbs, nightmare dolls and blood sucking demons it's fitting that Grade's music is a fusion of the most intense elements of hardcore, punk, emo and metal. Emotion, passion, brutal honesty and nippy guitar riffs a cut above many in the genre. Grade's trademark combination of aggression and melody continues to develop and really hits home. They have unconsciously taken their sound to the next level of accessibility without compromising their roots.

Grade

The Embarrassing Beginning

Grade blend together elements of emocore, rock, metal, pop and punk and the kitchen sink. This release contains "hard to find" and early tracks, hence the title.
