I have lost a little enthusiasm to write anything about the wax I have picked in the last weeks, so I think I will just fast forward and roll on.
Cash ruins everything around me….. well not entirely true, but here is some new/free ish from Twit One and co over at AUDDA. Vielen dank!!

This arrived the other day as an unexpected freebie in a recent order. It is an exclusive from my record supplier over in Köln – danke schöne. Compliled by Twit One, it comprises of 31 instrumental productions from 31 artist (predominantly from the German underground Hip Hop scene). The sounds are a throw back at that golden hip hop era with a 2011 twist. Beat Power will be out 22nd July on Augenringe unter dem dritten Auge Records. This is definitely heavy, but I am sure your tough enough to grab a copy…..

I must confess, I thought Gnac was a bit dull when I heard the clip on Loop23 a few months back. Then the splendid little video surfaced online and I put my pre-order on directly afterwards. Hut ab as they would say here to the photographer/director Robert Winter for capturing Suff’s venture to find some good Cognac. My big question to Suff Daddy, why didn’t you go to France huh?…. This beat grows on you!!

Twit One has compiled this excellent 16 track MPC beat puzzle. Each track is by a different producer with the usual suspects from the MPM roster, plus a beat from his idol Kan Kick. Its mad limited with only 500 copies, has a super nice cover shot by Robert Winter (the dude behind most of the photography for MPM) and it is simply the best slice of wax to come out of Köln in a while. No disrespect, but the last Hi Hat Club (Chop Shop) and the Suff Daddy LP weren’t of the usual high standard one comes to expect from MPM.

Suff Daddy is the next up in the beat tape series on MPM known as the Hi-Hat Club. Suff has taken bit more of a futuristic vibe on his production than his peers did on the 1st series, though there is still plenty of wicked loops and samples thrown in the blend. Of the 20 instrumental hip-hop tracks there is only a couple that I wasn’t feeling (sampling biggie or mop acapellas is a little played out in my opinion). Nevertheless this is a really enjoyable slice of wax and a must for lovers of sample based hip hop music.

Up My Alley & the MPM crew are grilling some wurst, downing plenty of Kölsch and dropping some beats this Saturday arvo over in Köln (All info over at Hi-Hat Club). Unfortunately I can’t make it down there as I am busy this weekend, but I have already tasted the delicious Beat BBQ promo mixes from the NRW’s underground loop diggers……..and you should too…..
Whilst I am on the local mix topic, I thought I’d give my mans Fella Vaughn some love as he made his internet mix debut…woohooo FV …whens Volume 2 due!!??
