    Yeah, it's from a good few years back now, but around the same time as this other UK outfit who also seemed to release one great album then disappear:

    Less wellknown to old people like me, but seems well known in the states, from last year, an unexpected collab with trap rapper Freddie Gibbs with production from Madlib...drug-dealing gangsta lyrics over digging soul breaks - it really works - Freddie's earlier material is on that trap beat stuff which just depresses me, but this is interesting
    Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - PiƱata

    hearing this for the first time and feeling it
    A Tribe Called Quest - The Lost Demos (FULL ALBUM) - bootleg!
    First 63% is great, runs out of steam by the end

    A classic. Far superior version of the title track was on the B side of We Get Fowl though.

    Just rediscovered this finest example of word salad fuckery in my old youtube likes.

    Gaia Urban's Village Idiot

    Dr. Syntax has just dropped a new one, I'll blast it in the general direction of my aural orifices at some point and report back. Oh and Rodney P has too. I've always been more into UK hip-hop than US.

    E2a: Bollox, just realised Disjecta already mentioned him. Ah well, worth a second mention.

    And fwiw this is the album (playlist) Disjecta mentioned.

    I gave this a download - thanks for the tip, really interesting listen. A few showstoppers on there. Unusual mix of political/conscious and then kinda blunted/drunk g funk stuff. Looks like hes been really prolific over the years. This year he released something called Soul on Ice 2 btw! I've never read Soul On Ice...important book in its time by all accounts...I wonder how it reads today
