the real hip-hop

˚D•∆•ø•I•M˚ x Vertiqua – hop’

It’s the never ending beauty of the internet.  A 15 year old from Germany teams up with an established beaties master from New Jersey for one of the dustiest, warmest, and most gorgeous beats we’ve heard from soundcloud in a while.  It sounds like they aged this track in the cigarette and marijuana smoke and then left it out to warp …

mp3: Hanz – Count

Hanz may finally be starting to gain the attention and fan base he deserves but that doesn’t mean his music is going to become any more accessible or traditional.  His newest single, “Count” is easily one of the most minimal tracks he’s put out in a while.  Similarly to his last release “War Fiction”, there is a militaristic quality to …
