Apollo Brown & Locksmith

No Question

A collaborative eight-track LP from Detroit producer Apollo Brown and Richmond, California MC Locksmith. Previous single "No Question" premiered via Ambrosia For Heads - 'Brown's bright keys and infectious vocal loop pull the best out of Locksmith'. Apollo Brown has released collaborative albums with Planet Asia, Skyzoo (their 2016 album "The Easy Truth" reached #11 on Billboard's 'Heatseekers'), Guilty Simpson, O.C., Ras Kass, Rapper Big Pooh.


Taking a typically Stones Throw-centric, old school & nostalgic flavour: the beats are thick with vinyl static, boombapin' in that OG way while the lyrics are positive, empowering and again, delivered in that old skool traditional manner. Locksmith tells stories close to his heart and does so in such an honest and direct way you can't help but listen. This is really really strong folks, you'd expect nothing less from Stones Throw I know, but Brown & Locksmith have hit on a deadly combo for "No Question" - tickling the fancy of hip-hop lovers across the board. Recommended! 


Ghostface Killah & Apollo Brown

The Brown Tape

    Narrated by The RZA, this is Ghostface Killah’s brutal tale of gangsters, betrayal and one vengeful soul hunting the 12 most powerful crime lords in the World. The Deluca's pressed Tony's remains into 12 vinyl records - one for each member of the family. But little did they know - he would return... This project is a daring, full-length Crime/Horror concept album. Executive Producer, and Ghostface Killah's longtime Wu-Tang Clan collaborator, The RZA refers to the album as "groundbreaking" in the hip hop genre. Apollo Brown was asked to record an alternate album at the same time as Adrian Younge created “Twelve Reasons To Die.” Keep in mind, the legendary Detroit producer (Apollo Brown) was given access to Ghostface Killah’s recordings and constructed beats around GFK's work. This made the project one of the producer's most challenging projects to date. That hard work has paid of as “The Brown Tape” is also one of the best albums to date from Ghostface Killah or Apollo Brown. Cinematic and nasty, this is Hip-hop at it’s most raw.

    Oddisee

    The Iceberg

      The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee’s new album ‘The Iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. ‘The Iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity; how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick R&B and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement. Oddisee has released two studio albums, several EP’s, mixtapes, and instrumental albums, and has over 30 million plays on Spotify. He’s been profiled by NPR, the Washington Post, praised by Pitchfork and Stereogum, performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk, Red Bull Sound Select, and at festivals including Glastonbury and Sasquatch. ‘The Iceberg’ follows two releases in 2016, the ‘Alwasta EP’ and the instrumentals album ‘The Odd Tape.’
