Found this streaming on some random soundcloud via a retweet by Quelle himself. A very nice understated deep album cut.

BADBADNOTGOOD – Fall In Love (J Dilla Cover)

Awww shit, I missed a new BADBADNOTGOOD (formerly The Odd Trio) cover. This time they jazzify Dilla’s “Fall In Love”, which historically has lent itself well to this sort of re-interpretation.

It’s a good day on the forums because Claaa7 just dropped his latest compilation featuring 18 joints from the Mashout Posse. Fireworks and M.O.P. on Indie Day may just be the perfect combination. –Philaflava

The Niyat – Recycle Bin (mixtape)

This mixtape is presented by FWMJ.

Just listen to it, the natural talent at work is plenty obvious. Sure, the ‘us vs the rap industry’ mentality and subject matter are well tread, but The Niyat sells it with a dedicated unyieldingly angry attitude – these guys actually sound like they take this shit personally, instead of chanting protest against mediocrity as an easy catchall mantra. It also helps that unlike MANY other lyrically intensive rappers this group is very proficient at picking beats, with selections just strong enough to avoid plodding but not so distinct as to take the focus away from the words. The mixing of the project is a bit rough, it never surpasses the feel of being a loose collection of tracks, but then again I don’t think they were trying to make a proper album either. It’s more of an exercise in craft than an artistic statement, and as such it’s tremendously entertaining.

Jeremiah Jae – Eating Donuts & Other Refined Foods (mixtape)

Better than most other mixtapes drawing on Dilla’s Donuts, mainly because it’s not meant as an overt tribute or eulogy. Instead (Brainfeeder affliate) Jeremiah Jae respectfully subverts Dilla’s work for his own means, combining it with Madlib beats and Flying Lotus beats and his own productions to create a skeleton framework for a collage-like rap experiment reminiscent of The Further Adventures Of Lord Quas and The Ecstatic. Not everything here works but the highlights are impressive, and I say this as somebody who’s not generally a Brainfeeder fan. NOTE: this mixtape sounds best on headphones.
