Al Lover & Gus Cutty – “All Mine” & “Part of the Game” double single + video

Posted by TheMayor


The Fist Fam are back at you with a new double single, here is what Al Lover has to say : “Two new tracks from my pal Gus Cutty and I, “All Mine” and “Part of the Game” using some samples I stole from a couple of our favorite SF bands, Ty Segall, and Thee Oh Sees. Ty Segall, and John Dwyer were kind enough to give us permission to uses both samples, thanks dudes, y’all are awesome for that. If you don’t know now you know, these band are producing some of the best Rock ‘n Roll out right now, so do your homework. Gus is killin’ the lyrics on both these tracks, and also did the creepy cover art. I made the beats. If you’re not aware this is the 2nd installment of 3 leaks leading up to the release of the new Fist Fam record “Posted” Coming out Winter 2010, so stay tuned.”

the gurp don’t stop

Al Lover -Creative Controlled free download

Posted by TheMayor

Al Lover is back again with another fresh project,

“This is basically a rhythmic rebuttal to Jeremy Earl from Woodsist, and the labels PR dude. They both sent me emails telling me to take down any and all downloadable links to the Woodsist Remix project I made a few months ago. Well, fuck that. I respect those cats, but I’m not gonna stop my progression because someones concerned with intellectual property rights or whatever. I don’t know, maybe they just think the shit’s wack. Sue me, I ain’t got shit. Anyhow, this project is a little different then the last couple sludgy, blown-out, tape hiss heavy beat reels I’ve made. I turned the quantization on for this one, and drank much Coffee while in the lab, as opposed to mass beer consumption for the last two. I find the cadence of the tracks to be more snappy and alert, for the most part. It was an experimental approach for me, I basically had no songs in mind to sample and just reached randomly into the crates and tried to make due with whatever I pulled out. A lot of the beats have no added drums, which is a strange approach for me. There is a lose narrative to the project about sampling laws, and intellectual property rights, just somethin’ thats been on my mind a little. Yeah, I hope you enjoy it” – Al Lover

Free music from White Mic of Bored Stiff

Posted by TheMayor

The big homie White Mic of Bored Stiff sent me a couple exclusives over the past week to check out which I was feeling. He then surprised me by putting up sixteen unreleased songs on his soundcloud page for download.

Some newer, some older, these songs were obviously made for the love of hip hop. Unlike most of the rap being made these days you can tell these came from the heart for the love of the music. Featuring Bored Stiff members Equipto, Mint Rock, Dubstar, Jules, Big Shawn, P Whaley and also Z-MAN on two tracks, Kelioso, Pat Wash, FDOG, The Agent, along with DJ TEEKO and TD Camp on the cuts. I have converted the songs to mp3 format and put them in a convenient zip file. Or you can listen and download individually here:
