Cyrano Sinatra (f.k.a. Cyrano aka Cy Yung) has reconnected with Dub MD to help remove a blemish from their immaculate first collaboration, 2009′s ‘Madicinal Libationz’. After assembling one of the most diverse casts of Hip-Hop underground at the time, ‘Madicinal Libationz’ was received with praise but ran into roadblocks to reaching as many as it could have, but this ‘Bitchless Brew’ will not have that problem.
The ‘B*tchless Brew’ features production from one of the UK’s best kept secrets, Magic-Boy, Cyrano’s familia, Centric, J. Slikk, Cynergy Soundz and Sharpcuts and extended fam from NC Hip-Hop’s stash of heatrock-makers, this is what should have been! Brought to you by Kevin Nottingham and RockTheDub. The project is minus a few choice cuts that will make their remix appearance for the forthcoming Anniversary edition.
Northeastern buzzmaker Naturel has hooked up with DJBooth.net to bring listeners his latest digital album, Momentous.
The project finds the well-versed fashion designer, illustrator and recording artist showcasing his many talents via 13 fresh tracks and a downloadable, 30-page art booklet. Included are previously-leaked, reader-approved cuts “Helium” and “Say.”
Dilemma provides guest vocals throughout Momentous, and instrumentals come courtesy of Naturel’s hand-picked beat crew, The Curators (made up of producers !llmind, Symbolyc One, Dilemma and Omen and live musicians Russel Carter, Jr., Josephine Marie and The Big China Symphony).
