Think Back Raw Poetic & Damu The fudgemunk

New HipHop treats brought to you by Raw Poetic and Damu The Fudgemunk with “Think Back”. Lots of jewels got dropped on this joint!! Think Back is featured on “The Reflecting Sea” by Raw Poetic & Damu The Fudgemunk. Out now!

About “The Reflecting Sea”
“As music continuously evolves, times change and new ideas and movements come & go. All of this functions in tandem with scientific, technological, social and political advancements in our society. The biggest component to that evolution is the people. There are creators and consumers. One cannot exist without the other. Throughout art, the audience defines quality, but artist has the power to introduce change and shift perception. Execution is key. The masses are always hungry for something fresh. Sometimes we’re at the forefront of new trends and sometimes we find comfort innovating the past. No matter what, musicians have a responsibility to bridge the gap.

Raw Poetic and Damu the Fudgemunk meet all of the above. Produced entirely by the artists, the new album “The Reflecting Sea” revisits sonic textures of yesteryear and combined with their own distinct ears for music, have created something uniquely foreign for the music world in our time. Speaking of the times, Raw Poetic’s lyrical subject matter is nothing short of relevancy. Speaking from an observatory perspective in addition to his own personal experiences, the album’s content is infinitely relatable.

Although known primarily as hip hop acts, both Damu and Raw P stretched out to expand what the genre is known for. The combination of elements from the mix of live instrumentation, improvisation and sampling to the range of styles including jazz, fusion, rock, electronic and soul make The Reflecting Sea unlike anything else. Captured and recorded in it’s rawest form, the album is honest expression. Masterminding the festival sounds is Damu the Fudgemunk. His voice is absent from the recordings, but his presence is immediately noticed throughout the 40 minute exhibition. Packed with tons of beats, tons of scratching, original compositions, upbeat and signature atmosphere, there’s no question who’s behind the boards. With the average tempo of over 100bpm, this is one of the most energetic releases in Redefinition’s catalog. Raw P and the Fudgemunk aim to revitalize listeners of all types with their original sound. They call it “The Reflecting Sea: Welcome to a New Philosophy.”

Raw Poetic (MC), hails from the DMV area by way of Philadelphia. In addition to several collaborations with Damu the Fudgemunk, he’s recorded 6 albums as a member of Panacea, 1 album with K-def, 1 album with Kev Brown and recent features with Brous One in which all have been met with critical acclaim.

Damu the Fudgemunk (producer/DJ) is a DC native who co-owns and operates Redefinition Records. With several successful releases as a solo artist, his music has garnered a reputation in the last decade for it’s consistent quality and conceptual structure.”

Dj low Cut “Ambition Of The Shallows” feat. Napoleon Da Legend & Paloma Pradal (Dirty)

Published

Spittin In Da Wip alumi Napoleon Da Legend linked up with Dj Low Cut and Paloma Pradal for HipHop banger called “Ambition Of The Shallows”. The beat is crafted by Dj Low Cut and the visuals are directed by Eric D.

About Dj Low Cut:
“Stuck in the depths of a dark alley, blocked by yet another breeze, hitting a stone wall, road sign ahead: Dead End.
Impasse. “Cul-de-sac”.
Hip‐hop. The original, some would say, official music of the late 20th Century Bronx. Some say it has endured it’s fair share of distractions, detractors and defectors. Some say it has murdered itself, having been abandoned by its so‐called best men, those who have gone off in other directions, or who have, simply, just beat‐retired. Yet, there are plenty of Soldier Monks still out there, prepared to sweat it out in the Temple of Machinery and Mics.
Low Cut honored this cause four years ago, with his MPC crafted minimalist version of NY Minute and he’s back to ring the bells and unsheathe the samples!
The starting point of Dead End’s production remains the 90’s boom-bap, but the will to carry it even further brings it to its destination. By decorating it with rich samples flushed out after digging through vinyls pressed several decades ago, it is guided by a compass pointing deposits to the East. With sound quality inherited from a fastidious composition and mix works, using inspiration rather than just being a copycat, Dead End celebrates it without setting it up as a museum piece.”

We’re hyped to see North Carolina Hip-Hop crew Kooley High back at with new treats! Their latest single “Ceiling” features a piano driven sample, a light boom bap beat pattern, a dope bassline and a Outkast “Aliens” sample in the hook. Tab-One and Charlie smarts spit some tight bars about elevating to higher heights, hence the name Ceiling ;).

“Ceiling” will be featured on Kooley High‘s upcoming album “Never Come Down” which will be executive produced by 9th Wonder. As you may or may not know 9th Wonder scooped up Rapsody while she a part of Kooley High back in the day so it’s pretty dope that he’s now executive producing their new album.
