PR: Dumi RIGHT and Cadence Proudly Present: "Legitimate Raw"


From Domination Recordings:

Dumi RIGHT and Cadence Proudly Present: "Legitimate Raw"

Upon first hearing about the crew Alternate Reality, one might assume that they are a new to the scene. That is far from the case however. While the group may be a new construct, both the members are seasoned purveyors of hip hop with substance.

Dumi RIGHT was introduced to audiences in the early 90's as a member of Zimbabwe Legit -- the pioneering crew widely regarded as the first African hip hop group to gain international recognition. At the same time, Cadence was making a name for himself as an MC, DJ and producer; as one half of the highly respected indie hip hop duo Raw Produce, and then later as a solo artist. Their paths converged on a number of occasions over the course of the last decade, with collaborations on various projects that most notably include: Zimbabwe Legit - House of Stone, Cadence - Creative Commerce and O.U.O - of unknown origin.

Now Dumi RIGHT and Cadence have joined forces as Alternate Reality and are proud to present Legitimate Raw - a limited edition vinyl EP (ONLY 300 hand-numbered copies), which introduces listeners to the group, while also providing several exclusive songs and remixes from their respective catalogs.

Legitimate Raw finds Cadence and Dumi RIGHT serving up insightful and incisive lyrics, coupled with richly textured beats to deliver their unique brand of artistry to the masses. The release features production work by Cadence, Saint and Lord Lamont (Khz Productions), and guest appearances by hip hop luminaries YZ, Chubb Rock and Prince Po (Organized Konfusion), as well as underground favorites C Rayz Walz, Breez Evahflowin' and Vast Aire.

Copies of the limited edition, hand-numbered Legitimate Raw EP can be purchased at www.phmusic.bandcamp.com .

The exclusive vinyl EP can be ordered for $25 plus appropriate shipping and handling. As a bonus, purchase also includes an immediate digital download of the 8 tracks in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other high fidelity format you could possibly desire. Note: The digital download is ONLY available with purchase of the vinyl EP and cannot be bought separately.

Legitimate Raw is the next step in the musical lineage of two artists who have already crafted an impressive catalog of releases, working alongside an A-list cast of hip hop veterans and respected independent artists. This release will give listeners an exclusive window into the creative mind state of these longtime denizens of the underground, giving the people what they have been asking for.

Product will begin shipping on October 4th, but you can begin placing pre-orders now.

RUSTE JUXX -  ADAMANTINE  OUT NOW -   PROJECT FULLY PRODUCED BY ENDEMIC (ALL ELEMENTS/ NO CURE )

Within two years, Ruste Juxx has proved he is Indestructable with his Sean Price co-signed album, then went in for the kill with producer Marco Polo on The eXXecution, and is now claiming his longevity in the underground hip-hop scene, letting it be known that he is strong as Adamantine.

Well known for his strong delivery and hardcore rhymes, Ruste Juxx is back with a new mix CD, Adamantine, a project entirely produced by Endemic.  “I first linked up with Endemic three years ago when asked me to be a feature on a project he was working on called Terminal Illness,” says Ruste Juxx.  “I was on three songs, one with Sean Price, then later on we were going to put out an EP but we wound up knocking out a album. Crazy part is all of this was done just talking online & over the phone. I never met son but my hardcore rhyme style and his murderous production… IT’S ADAMANTINE!”

Adamantine features Duck Down label mates General Steele of Smif N Wessun, Skyzoo, and Torae, as well as Ill Bill, Wordsmith, Supreme, and more.  Fans can listen to the first leak off the new album, “U Know What Crime It Is” featuring Sledge at http://www.duckdown.com .

PR: Das Racist "Sit Down, Man" Mixtape Free Download


From Chris at Koch/E1 Entertainment:

Das Racist "Sit Down, Man" Mixtape Free Download

The moment you've all been waiting for...the Sit Down, Man mixtape is available for free download!

Grab it here (and feel free to post!):
http://www.refinedhype.com/mixtapes/das-racist-sit/das-racist-sit-down-man.zip

Also, if you are in the NYC area on September 16th, come on down to the mixtape release party at Santos House Party featuring performances by Das Racist, Maluca, Tecla and Keepaway as well as DJ sets by Das Racist, Amazing Baby, Chairlift, 2DopeBoyz and additional special guests. RSVP at Dasracist@yahoo.com

For more information, check out the press release below:

Das Racist have made an indelible imprint on the musical landscape with their irresistible pastiche of witty Dadaist-influenced raps, wry social commentary and tongue-in-cheek humor, and the trio returns with their strongest declaration to date. Today, the Brooklyn hip-hop crew is dropping their second mixtape of the year, Sit Down, Man, and it drips with their signature style you've come to expect while featuring a notable collection of producers including Diplo, Boi-1da, Dame Grease, Scoop DeVille, Teengirl Fantasy, Devo Springsteen and Chairlift, who also pull double duty as one of the many guest collaborators, joining the likes of El-P, Roc Marciano and Despot to name a few. The new collection is being presented by Diplo, Mad Decent, Greedhead Entertainment as well as returning partner Mishka. To celebrate the new mixtape, Das Racist will host a celebration at Santos Party House in NYC on Thursday, September 16, and will be joined with performances by Maluca, Keepaway and Tecla with DJ sets provided by Chairlift, Amazing Baby, 2dopeboyz and DR themselves. The event will be presided over by "Internets Celebrity" Dallas Penn.

The trio embodies a new generation of hip-hop, who borrow from the genre's trailblazers while pushing the limits and crafting their own blueprint. Sit Down, Man instantly reveals a group not only prolific but also one that matured exceedingly fast to new levels of art and musicianship. Their tongue-twisting, pop culture-referring rhymes flow steadily in unison with skilled production from a stellar collection of producers and contributors, with track titles like "All Tan Everything" and "Puerto Rican Cousins," embodying their clever content. The following outlets are hosting the mixtape available for download: maddecent.com, greedhead.net, mishkanyc.com and djbooth.net.

Most recently, the blogosphere was permeated with two newly released videos, one for "Who's That? Brooown!" and the other, "Ek Shaneesh," further distinguishing the group for their ability to reign over pop culture. The Frogger, Tetris-era visuals of "Who's That? Brooown!" incite instant nostalgia and for those longing for their Nintendo, you can check out the corresponding interactive game version of the video and play as one of the members on the Das Racist website: www.dasracist.net
