In addition to being a pretty dope emcee, L.A. based fast riser Shane Eli is the best young producer alive. Sure, we're obviously biased, but that doesn't mean it's less true. Don't believe us? Take a listen to his new free album "I Can Do Better" and judge for yourself.

CookBook (of LA Symphony) Serves Up Original Recipes Mixtape


From Ballin' PR:

CookBook (of LA Symphony) Serves Up Original Recipes Mixtape

CookBook, who is one of the founding members of the legendary independent hip-hop group L.A. Symphony, will be releasing his latest solo album, Original Recipes, July 12th on ASB Records. In anticipation of Original Recipes he’s teamed up with DJ Revolution of The World Famous Wake Up Show to create the Original Recipes Mixtape, which he’ll be hitting listeners with on May 10th. The mixtape features a collection of some of CookBook’s best work to date mixed, chopped, cut, and blended by one of hip-hop’s most talented turntablists.
 
There’s a certain musical excellence fans have grown to expect from the artists who are under the L.A. Symphony umbrella. The group produced the likes of Pigeon John, and CookBook’s solo work, including 2009’s I Love The 80’s, and his work with UNO Mas, including last year’s Cook & UNO release C+U Music Factory, has shown CookBook to be the next in line from the crew to make an impact worldwide.
 
CookBook’s style features top notch lyricism, mixed with wit and personality, over his own production. The results of this are songs that can be appreciated by underground hip-hop heads while still being accessible to mainstream fans. This is one of the reasons DJ Revolution wanted to team up with him for the Original Recipes Mixtape. “CookBook's music is needed in this time,” he explains, “it's a breath of fresh air in hip-hop. He can do all the hard, tough guy raps, but chooses to make the music fun for the listener and relatable at the same time.”
 
Fans of CookBook’s music know that no topic is ever off the table. He explores a broad range of emotions, touching on everything from relationships, to success, to vision, to enduring the ups and downs of the industry, and he does so with an energy that is unmatched in today’s music scene.
 
California hip-hop heads have loved what CookBook’s served up to them for the past decade-plus. Now it’s time for everyone to get a taste of his Original Recipes.

PR: UK Rapper DELS Prepares New Album GOB


From Dan F:

PR: UK Rapper DELS Prepares New Album GOB

I wanted to put UK rapper DELS on your radar. DELS is releasing his new album, GOB, via Big Dada/Ninja Tune on May 24th (May 9th digitally). The album is a collection of electronic-driven hip-hop, full of thick, snyth-filled beats and DELS was able to work with some pretty exciting people on the album, including Joe Goddard of Hot Chip and David Andre Sitek of TV On The Radio, he recently remixed the album's title track. I’d love for you to check out the remix and album, and hopefully we can find some time to chat more about DELS soon.

Watch the video for “GOB” here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2y4dkh1aRU

Listen to the David Andrew Sitek remix here: http://media.audibletreats.com/DELS-GOB_David_Andrew_Sitek_RMX.mp3

About DELS/GOB:

With GOB
, DELS keeps the list of guest collaborators short -- the album features Joe Goddard of Hot Chip, Roots Manuva, experimental songstress Michachu, and London producer Kwes, along with David Sitek of TVOTR to remix the album’s title track -- and the result is a flowing, cohesive album that seemingly spends as much time in the world of hip-hop as it does exploring interestingly experimental electro sounds that are as much a product of DELS’ unique vision as the producers he works with on the project. As an accomplished graphic designer, DELS also had a hand in all of the visuals from the album, including album and single artwork and video direction.
