Mirror episode

 

If you’re a fan of SLUM VILLAGE, well here’s a perfect Christmas gift from me – Mirrors Episode 1 from Richmond- based emcee FLY ANAKIN.

This 5 Track EP features on-point 90s hard-hitting hip-hop with delicate and introspective sounds. Mirrors Episode 1 was produced by fellow emcee and producer EWONEE – if you’re not familiar with this guy, his tracks are HOT, HOT, HOT! Sample his work by checking out his collaborative mixtape with STANLEY IPKUSS, Indefinite.

But  for now, have a listen to Mirrors Episode 1 and download a copy for FREE! Merry Christmas!

 

Mixtape Review: Indefinite – Stanley Ipkuss & ewonee thee beatnik

indefnite Stanley Ipkuss
STANLEY IPKUSS and EWONEE THEE BEATNIK pulled together for their latest mixtape Indefinite, which dropped last month.

The 14- track collaborative production features California-based emcee Ipkuss’ raspy voice and reflective wordplay and New York producer Ewonee Thee Beatnik’s spin on vintage/golden hip-hop beats. With NAS-que raps coupled with chopped-up and somewhat stagnant versions of classic beats, the duo are well on their way to making a permanent stamp on underground hip-hop.

Indefinite is sure worth a listen as these guys have taken a mellowed-out sound (similar to NAS, BLU and CHUUWEE) to another (nope, wrong word) SEVERAL levels.
