RASHAD – THE RETURN
Ohio supa-skilful producer/singer Rashad Thomas is one of our fav artists for his smart and always excellent music approach as trained producer as you can realize listening to Stalley mixtape Lincoln Way Nights as well as a great performer (check out his masterpiece The Museum). We’ve got the occasion to spotlight Rashad music on Turnt Up 4 Life and So Solid R&B and today we deliver anotha great intriguing track from his solid project The Museum titled The Return (check out also the official video). Currently Rashad is involved into Stalley debut album titled Ohio scheduled for October 27.
RACHID – CHARADE
Back in the 1997 when the son of the musician,composer,singer Ronald Bell of Kool & The Gang , Rachid Bell dropped Prototype, a mix of downtempo,electronic music and r&b. Well, if his name is not familiar, the single Pride will help you to identify the voice behind Rachid. Anyway, we selected the smooth joint tiled Charade from the moody and mellow 5 stars project Prototype.
OVEOUS FEAT. QVLN – FALL IN LOVE (J.DILLA TRIBUTE)
New York producer and rapper Oveous Maximus teamed up with eclectic musician/singer/artist Quetzal Guerrero aka QVLN to record a tribute to the one and only J.Dilla. For the occasion the duo resumed a classic Dilla production from Slum Village masterpiece Fantastic Vol.2 , titled Fall In Love. Well, what we can say, we can assert the revisitation is surely something captivating and really hot .
JMSN – STREET SWEEPER
JMSN is more than a simple artist! Christian Berishaj aka JMSN is a gifted producer,multi-instrumentalist and last but not least a so fucking hot performer!!!

He is always able to broke the conventional boundaries of music, creating a seductive,sought-after,dark,contemplative, nocturnal vibe that engages the soul!
