Klaus Layer’s “Spiel Mir Eine Alte Melodie” (Play Me An Old Melody) 45 brings two previously unreleased tracks to vinyl for the first time. Since first appearing in the below Youtube promo video for his Adventures LP, Spiel Mir Eine Alte Melodie has been the subject of numerous fan inquires about whether it would see an official release. Good news: it’s here. Get your copy before they’re gone.

Shabaam Sahdeeq – Do You (Prod DJ Spinna)


Shabaam Sahdeeq releases his new album Keepers of The Lost Art next Tuesday and in anticipation drops a new single, the bonus track, off the new project. Check it out.

“Back in the late-’90s, the Brooklyn-based Shabaam Sahdeeq and DJ Spinna formed something of an impromptu duo: Tracks like the Rawkus-released “5 Star Generals” showcased Shabaam’s studied flow allied to Spinna’s signature space-funk production. It’s a winning chemistry that’s back in effect with “Do You,” a bonus cut from S-Dub’s new Keepers of the Lost Art album (out April 22nd)…” – Village Voice

DJ Premier – Bars In The Booth w/ Dres of Black Sheep (Session 2) (Video)


Dres did his thing. Check it out.

Simply, “Bars in the Booth” isn’t about age, popularity, or how many Twitter followers you have; its about an Emcee and a DJ moving the crowd—and that is the definition of Hip-Hop.

For Session 2, Premier linked up with up with Dres (of Black Sheep & Native Tongue fame):

“Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on “Bars in the Booth.” He killed it. We got more “Bars in the Booth” coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!” – DJ Premier
