World Expo and the Soundsci crew are mad busy these days. While "Ronin" got released recently there is supreme piece of wax coming - a 7inch by Oxygen aka Just Divine.

The two tracks on this 45 feature rhymes formed in the late eighties to early nineties from Ox's earliest incarnation as 'MC Just Divine'.

Bought into a modern context with uptempo production by Soundsci's own Jonny Cuba on '1-4-9' and precision cuts by the group's DJ, Ollie Teeba. The super heavy flip side 'Droppin' Bombs', showcases Ox's effortless flows over a slinky Jazz Spastics/Slipmat Brothers beat.

Legion / Fat Beats: LGR001 / LGR002 ft. The Legion

The Legion consists of the Bronx trio Cee Low, Molecules and Chucky Smash. "Everything about us is old school," says Chucky. The Legion's debut and only album "Theme + Echo = Krill" was released as Mercury promo in 1994. 

Name it a re-press or first official release, Fat Beats is about to drop the album with picture cover and bonus 7". 

Yes, you can be old school hardcore, slammin' and brand new all at the same time. They've been like this since junior high. New rappers gotta come out with new designer cloths ... but the Legion is not going for it. If you like hip-hop all about rhyming, skills, music, flow and flavor, then you'll enjoy The Legion. 

Fat Beats offers an orange colored vinyl LP bundled with a red 7" single of Jingle Jangle b/w Legion Groove.

Smoke On: SOR-1000-5 ft. Nine

Punchlines like "six million ways to die but only one to live" or "we all gonna die but I'm gonna die fly" and a saxophone sample that simply killed it made "Make Or Take" a hip-hop classic. With his unique voice Nine released until today 7 albums (min. 2 classics) and a long list of singles. 

His last album comes via the European (German?) label Smoke On Records entitled "1999" and it sounds unexpectedly fresh. The LP delivers 13 tracks and features guests like Lil Dap (Group Home), Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Rock (Heltah Skeltah) or Shabaaz The Disciples (Sunz Of Man).

The album is almost entirely produced by Kunfu who is pretty new to me. No matter if its an new album it delivers sample based beats and fresh cuts. This is a limited edition of 500 copies, released in Feb. 2016.
