Quelle Chris’ ode to GMOs, hydrogenated oil, and the poisonous wasteland that is American nutrition has gotten a tummy tuck, stomach staples, and plastic surgery. After releasing the video for the original track “We Eat It” (off the new album “Niggas Is Men”) last week, Quelle Chris has put together a remix featuring P.U.D.G.E & Chris Keys. The new version wraps the lyrical message around a beautiful piano loop and is as distorted as the American view on diet.

L.A.-based future funk outfit The Milky Way present the “Dubai b/w Milky Way” single. Sum – best known for his 2009 Lone Wolf album with producer Belief – fronts this band of underground stars comprising guitarist, keyboard players, background vocalists and more, amongst them NYC producer P.U.D.G.E. and L.A. deejay Cee Brown. “The Milky Wayans” have performed with the likes of Dwele, Arrested Development and The Pharcyde all over Los Angeles. “‘We have many different sounds, and ‘Dubai’ is one – minimalist electronic rap for the fun of it,” says Sum. “‘Keep It Milky’” is the slogan and mission statement for the band. Life and it’s obstacles should never throw you too far off your game. Bruce Lee said ‘be like water’, we say ‘keep it milky’.” Sum is working on Dragon, a two-volume solo project featuring production from Needlz, Ski Beatz, Brandun DeShay, Computer Jay, Tye Hill and many others.
New Orleans emcee Voice presents CuTZ, 11 tracks that showcase the many styles of the Los Angeles transplant with the sultry, striking flow best known for her work on French trip-hop producer Wax Tailor’s 2007 silver-certified Decon release Hope & Sorrow as well as her 2006 album Gumbo (PTR/Featherperm). CuTZ presents original beats from the likes of Low End Theory regular P.U.D.G.E., Belgian veteran DJ Grazzhoppa and Canadian astronaut Moonstarr side by side with repurposed instrumentals from The Doppelgangaz, Lex Luger and more. The languid, loungey first single “Abundant Fate” features a soulful hook from singer Indigo, P.U.D.G.E. lends a guest verse as well as production duties to the gothic “Silkworm”, and poet Saddi Khali appears on the tribal thump of “How Can I Luv U”. “NOLA Redux”, her collaboration with L.A. rapper, Malkovich made the top of Gilles Peterson’s Best Hip-Hop of 2009 list, and between her solo releases and her collaborations with BBE, Ninja Tune, Canada’s Public Transit Recordings, UK’s Twisted Funk Records and Tailor, she can be heard on over a quarter of a million records worldwide. CuTZ is out now on High Bar Entertainment.

Los Angeles rapper Malkovich and NYC producer/rapper P.U.D.G.E. proudly present Lethal Vice, a free three-song EP where the duo invoke the spirit of Lethal Weapon and Miami Vice’s buddy-cop duos to tell some true L.A. stories. Vice is produced almost completely by P.U.D.G.E., who made his name alongside experimental beatheads like Dibia$e and Samiyam at L.A.’s Low End Theory weekly. Ali Baba Abnormal, Sum and Chris Clarke appear on the posse cut “Flatfoots”. Aaron Godfred (responsible for the 2010 movie Little Blue Pill) directed Vice’s ‘multi-music video trailer’, which rolls videos for all three songs into a movie trailer advertising the EP. “P.U.D.G.E. and I lived together in L.A. for a while,” says Malkovich. “Lethal Weapon was in our DVD player a lot and we noticed parallels between Mel and Danny and us. He’s the black guy, I’m the white guy. He’s more laid back, I’m more aggro. And we spent a long time together just trying to get by in L.A.” Malkovich dropped the Ayatollah Presley mixtape last year, hosted by House Shoes and featuring Prince Po of Organized Konfusion, Killer Reese of King Fantastic, IamOmni and many more.
