“Time To Build” is the first single from the forthcoming Dj Czarny & Tas second album. The song features rapper/singer Ozay Moore (formerly known as Othello), Andrzej Konieczny (keys) and Jakub Frydrych (guitar). New LP will be released on June 7th, 2013.
8 Miles To Moenart has literally brought Tall Black Guy full circle. Detroit was where he started making music, and it’s to his hometown he returns to draw inspiration for his debut album. Taking in low-slung hip hop, downtempo house and jazz-tinged street soul, it’s a record of rare focus. Largely instrumental, he’s also added some choice collabs with Ozay Moore (formerly known as Othello) and Diggs Duke, bringing their own unique styles to the melting pot. This record encapsulates the musical heritage of Detroit, through the looking glass of Tall Black Guy’s own signature sound.
!4KT & Ozay Moore (fka Othello) release a new track in honor of Record Store Day, off their forthcoming Taking L’s LP.
This record was taken from our upcoming Album “Taking L’s”
The track was made for the heads out there who know about the magic
of the Record store. It features a testimonial from the Homie Ohmega watts.
In honor of Record Store Day……we give ya’all ” Record Store Day”
Mon Amie De’Troit is the first single from acclaimed Hip Hop producer Tall Black Guy’s debut album. Tall Black Guy has quickly established himself as one of the most talked about producers in hip hop. With fans including Gilles Peterson, Anthony Valadez and Robert Glasper (TBG won Glasper’s official remix competition in 2012) his album ’8 Miles To Moenart’ is the subject of huge anticipation.
The single itself features a sublime vocal performance from Ozay Moore (formerly known as Othello of hip hop crew Lightheaded). The track deals with the subject matter of the full album – the city of Detroit. Over a soulful hip hop beat, Ozay’s low slung raps and subtle sung vocals paint an evocative picture of his hometown.
P.H.I.L.T.H.Y’s upcoming album, The Living Daylights, is dedicated to the people who use their gifts to illuminate the darkness of their environments. The Michigan based emcee teamed up with Kevin Nottingham and Urban Digital to lead by example with A Little Light For You. Using his inspiring rhymes and soulful, sample-driven production by fellow BLAT! Pack member KuroiOto, he encourages his listeners to join him in his journey to make a world a better place. Equipped with fan favorites like “I Try,” and “Sometimes,” and guest appearances from Ozay Moore (formerly Othello) and Sareem Poems, #ALL4U should leave dedicated and new listeners satisfied.
Today, FRSH SLCTS kicks off the Othello – In A Single Series campaign,
where the Pacific NW-raised, & currently Michigan-based, emcee
will be releasing a digital single (usually w/ both an A and B side)
each month until the end of the year.
For the inaugural edition – we’re settings things off in grand fashion
w/ “Bang!” b/w “Top Spillin” -
both of which were produced by 14KT of A-Side Worldwide & Red Bull Big Tune fame.
These two tracks also serve as the official first single
for the forthcoming Taking L’s project -
a full-length album that the duo started years ago
but never completed, that will now finally(!!!) see the light of the day
as a free release on FRSH SLCTS (http://FRESHselects.net) later this year.

Apparently, we’re “not known for [our] hip-hop” –
so myself & the esteemed gentlemen at Ante Up PDX
have put together a full length compilation of why we should be.
The 11th of March 2011 saw Japan suffer its largest earthquake in history, 9.0 on the Richter scale. The quake was soon followed by an enormous tsunami with waves measuring up to ten meters high.
This natural disaster has wiped out towns, taken thousands and thousands of lives (with even more still missing) and had further knock on affects to several of the countries nuclear facilities. Japan is a calm, patient and dignified Nation and will no doubt build from this disaster, however in order to do that they will need as much help as possible.
It is with that in mind that A Bridge Too Far Recordings and The Find Magazine have teamed up to show financial support to the rescue and rehabilitation efforts that will be ongoing for the coming months if not years.
Japan has long been a Nation obsessed with music, arts, films and creative culture and has provided you with a lot of good music in the past.
Lets show our appreciation and support for this by purchasing this download!
