Brain Scrambler :: Marrow Drops ‘The Damage Done’ Via Milled Pavement

a2944946475_10

In a mere 6-ish months, Milled Pavement Records has gone from being on the underground bubble to being a forced to be reckoned with for East Coast-based and forward-thinking artists.  With homies like BrzowskiAnthony Maintain and MC Homeless already making appearances on the roster, it was a safe assumption that anything from the collective that crossed my radar would be quality, and Marrow kept that streak going by getting me hip to his latest release, The Damage Done.  As a fan of groups like Non-Phixion and Darkleaf, this project hit me right in the feels, and the backstory given for the project makes the lyrical and musical onslaught that much more interesting.  Definitely take a moment to read the Bandcamp liner notes when (not if!) you go to check this one out, support if you can, and share it around for other heads to enjoy!

Dynamite Soul :: Fresh Kils Flips Otis

Fresh Kils is one of the most solid beatmakers doing it on the American continent.  Hailing from Toronto, and always holding it down for hip-hop, Kils has the gift of taking material that may have been heavily sampled previously, and finding a way to make it uniquely his own.  Dig the video for further proof.
