Neosonic: ft. Panacea (Raw Poetic, K-Murdock, Damu The Fudgemunk)

To avoid any confusion this post attends to Panacea releases from 2006 and 2010. The reason for this post is that our friends from Vinyl-Digital found a dead stock of the "12 Step Program" LP and vinyl copies of the "Ink Is The Drink" 2LP. Let's dedicate our attention to one release after the other:

"Ink Is The Drink" got released in 2006 on "Glow In The Dark" (GITD012LP) and contains twelve blazin' tracks featuring vocals by Raw Poetic and beats by K-Murdock. The original CD version got released by legendary Rawkus Records.

"12 Step Program" got released in 2010. The limited edition LP on blue coloured vinyl was distributed by K-Murdock himself. Some white generic covers were signed by the artists and those are also available here if you act fast.  Get another twelve Panacea tracks with this LP.

Six2Six: SIX-16 ft. Constant Deviants

It's OK! and much more than OK is that Six2Six Records has a bunch of new record releases in preparation but let's start with a 12" vinyl release by Constant Deviants called "It's OK!".

Constant Deviants (M.I. & DJ Cutt) started in the mid 90s and delighted us with lots of dope releases over the last few year via their label Six2Six Records.

The new 12" contains four tracks plus their instrumental versions. Both a-side tracks are from the album "Diamond" that got released on CD in Nov. 2012 (I bet it will be available on vinyl one day). The b-side tracks are non-LP tracks or even previously unreleased. "Man Alove"produced by Australian beat-maker Debonair P.

The 12" is now available for a decent price. It's a pre-order - shipping expected mid April.

A: It's OK!
A: It's OK! Instrumental

Asphalt: ASP0007 ft. Marlon

Imperial proudly presents the new release on Asphalt Records that features North California MCee "Marlon".

In 1995 they recorded a couple of demo tracks together that finally never got released due to some money issues. Now and 18 years later Imperial finally releases this 4-track EP named "Listener Discretion Advised" in a limited number of 100 copies.

Chopped Herring: CHDHUM001 ft. Da Hoodz Uv Mizbhavya

Expect the unexpected if you deal with Chopped Herring Records. From Masta Ace and Prince Paul to Henchmen and Action Bronson the richness is infinite!!!

The first of most probably three March/April releases on CH is a time travel to the Bronx in 1994. Maybe only those who are diggin deep into mid 90s indie crates ever heard about "Da Hoodz Uv Mizbhavya".

Da Hoodz Uv Mizbhavya released their debut record on North Pole Recordings back in '94. The small EP got 4 tracks - 2 of them are available on this brand new CH release. The others will be hard to get as most of the first EPs might be destroyed.

"Suckaz In Da Mud" is limited to 300 copies, first 75 copies on red/black/clear vinyl, next 75 copies on red/gold vinyl, 150 copies on black vinyl.

A: Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil

B: Suckaz In Da Mud
B: Fun And Games

Order Now: here



My special thanks goes out to Bob @ Chopped Herring Records and Da Hoodz Uv Mizbhavya. All copyrights reserved, posted for promotion use only. PS: HEY B! WHY NOT PRESSING A BONUS 7" WITH THIS RELEASE FEATURING "THE BLUE PRINT" & "THE BAD SEED" :)
