We’re diggin the chillhop vibes of “Flip It”, crafted by 1905. The jazzy piano sample, boom bap drum pattern and thick bass make this a nice treat for the ears. Flip it is featured on the HipHop instrumental album “2 Days” by 1905. The album is full of sample driven, chill, jazzy boom bap beats.
Heavily influenced by graffiti and hash oil, 1 9 0 5 pushes beats through a sampler, the same one he has previously digged with the pope. On day 1 he created a joint and it became light. On day 2 he did this f*****’ tape. The rest of the week he just chilled. ~ XQRSNS Records

About “The Year In Color – Book 2”
“We give thanks to The Creator, The ancestors , The Orisha, and our loved one’s, relatives, and friends who assisted in making this album possible. This contribution serves as Book 2/3, which is an artistic expression of my experience and insperience of being initiated into the Lukumi Tradition as a crowned priest. The presentation to the Room is a ceremony that presents the newly crowned priest to the community. It is a time of acknowledgment and also the indication that the true work now begins. We appreciate you taking this journey with us as we utilize the art form of hip hop to create a backdrop and platform for progression, enlightenment and healing. “I Am Because We Are “
Marlowe (L’Orange & Solemn Brigham) – Lost Arts | Official Video
New dope new treats coming from one of our favorite HipHop labels Mello Music Group with “Lost Arts”! It’s a conscious, lyrical banger by L’Orange and Solemn Brigham AKA “Marlowe”. Lost Arts is the first release from Marlowe’s self titled album “Marlowe”. THIS IS HIPHOP!!
L’Orange & Solemn Brigham are the hard-boiled duo behind the fun house fever dream, Marlowe. The unveiling started today with the video for the first single Lost Arts. The album will be in stores July 13th.
Released on Mello Music Group, Marlowe is a triumph of ambition, a rap bricolage blending prohibition and civil rights-era samples with Asian psychedelic rock flourishes. Solemn is an artist perennially seeking something to fight for, channeling energy from the music of the civic rights era, stealing timeless rhythms and inflection from classic funk and soul. An old soul with original ideas, tapping into the eternal reservoir of Sam Cooke to Ice Cube, Otis Redding to Chuck D, Curtis Mayfield to KRS-One.
With dazzling cinematic mise en scene, L’Orange crafts a world that sounds like an old-time medicine show dropped into 90s Brooklyn, with Solemn summoning the holy spirit of Big L. Cymbals crash, drums pound, fuzzy guitars ride out, a bronze rain of horns cascade. This is gorgeous celestial dust, high-powered fuel with every syllable meticulously ordained. Marlowe cracked the case, but how they did it can only become clear under deeper investigation.
Below is the track list of the album below.
