SINKING CITY

New to the scene Charm Taylor bringing an amazing mix of R&B and Hip-Hop tracks, they are layered with mystic and atmospheric undertones yet providing lyrically poetry and strong-minded messages. The Road Within has an array of style, hazy vocals surrounded by rhythmic instrumentals, creating a unique and contemporary sound.

Fans of SZA, Princess Nokia and Jamila Woods or anything from the Brownswood compilation will love this. 


The 79rs Gang brings together two of the biggest Mardi Gras Indian crews — the 9th Ward Hunter Gang and the Black Eagles Gang for two cuts of heavy percussion and chanting. Immersive, ecastatic and hypnotic, this is all about the human instrument!


Beat Tapes Side A & B is spoiling us, not only with the sheer amount of tracks – (twenty four!) but also the persistence of amazing track one after the other. This mix-tape by the Hawaiian DJ - now resident in New Orleans by way of Tokyo – was passed around on a C-60 till it became a Big Easy legend. Not to mention the way that samples are dropped in creating the most incredible vibes, specially track three hosting a chilled instrumental sample of Michael Jackson’s ‘Got To Be There’ which took three members of staff scratching their heads trying to figure it out, always fun. The whole album is a mixture of varied of laid-back beats then throwing us some groovy soul tunes and then to throw into the mix some industrial techno style. 

STAFF COMMENTS

Millie says: Collective and ingenious, this album provides a diverse track list filled with hidden gem samples to find within. This flows so smoothly, effortlessly transitioning from all different genres what’s not to love.

Sinking City bring the heat straight from NOLA every damn time, but release number four takes us to the Mardi Gras like a Bob James sample! The amazing Romeo and Jermaine - Big Chiefs from different ends of the city - came together to celebrate their shared devotion to the deep roots of NO’s “Indian” culture, laying down a whole heap of heavy, hypnotic funk. Comprised solely of vocals and percussion, "Fire On The Bayou" delivers a fearsome wallop. Ooooh na na mama!
