14KT Nowa

I’ve been waiting for this since I initially heard about it, and I will give thanks to 2DopeBoyz as I have too many times in the past. 14KT is a producer out of the Lab Techs collective in Ann Arbor, Michigan. If you haven’t heard about this guy I really do feel sorry for you. The beats that this guy has put out are nothing short of amazing. This is an album that 14KT has had done since 2006, when J Dilla passed away. Making these “donuts” was his way of coping with Dilla’s passing. On another note, you can catch 14KT on tour with Buff1, Mayer Hawthorne & House Shoes starting September 5th. Follow me after the jump for the download link. Continue reading


Stones Throw x Ed Banger = Pure Insanity

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here is some awesome video footage from the recent tour that Stones Throw and Ed Banger have embarked on. Each of the labels brought out some of their new talent and toured the fine continent of Europe. Stones Throw brought James Pants, Mayer Hawthorne, Dam Funk & label owner (as well as bomb ass DJ) Peanut Butter Wolf. Who was repping for Ed Banger you might ask? DJ Mehdi, Busy P (also known as Pedro Winter (Ed Banger Label owner)) & DSL is the answer. If you watch the video, you can tell that every one of these shows looks like a non-stop party. I wish I could say that I was fortunate to be in Europe and see these two labels team up. No dissapointments here. Make sure you have your dancing shoes on because after watching this one you may have the urge to get down.
