Mark Cooper – I Know How You Feel Man Vol. 5

Published

on

Here’s a fresh beat tape to bring in the new year, vibe along with the fifth volume of “I Know How You Feel Man”  from producer Mark Cooper. With this latest iteration, it’s not entirely instrumental as we get some welcomed features dropping in throughout the twenty-one record collection. My personal favorite is the heavy hitting combination of Nate Paulson & Marv Won on “Detroit Ballet“, a fitting title that comes roughly after the halfway point of Volume 5Zev Howling & Monsoon each lend a hand on separate tracks respectively, placed in-between a fantastic batch of sounds that range from lo-fi & relaxing to the perfect video game background music. “Fire Escape” was my top pick outside of “Detroit Ballet” and though it arrives late there was a lot of contention before it in this smooth & enjoyable volume of music from Mark Cooper.

Beware – “Learning Together 2”

Beware - "Learning Together 2"

In a follow-up to 2014’s first entry comes “Learning Together 2”. A spacy vibey instrumental invasion has begun and Beware is the producer pilot in this half an hour packed adventure. “Space Invaders” was a real standout starting off but as I dove in deeper between the talking bytes that pair sounds together in a way that just fits I was immersed. A journey into the technology of the past is the concept behind this here release and do I think it was able to convey this concept? Absolutely. “Cheap Mansion“, “Zoo Beans“, “Flipping Stereo“…..man the whole thing is dope. Detroit is spoiled with talent right now and Beware is yet another shining example.

AGiLE SOCiETY – the UNMiXED 420 LiST

AGiLE SOCiETY - the UNMiXED 420 LiST

After many trials & tribulations & some delay, the latest release from AGiLE SOCiETY was finally given the “green” light. Unearthed for your listening pleasure the two-part instrumental project had to battle through the distributor’s assumption that it was packing samples. However, when it comes to creative forces of AGiLE SOCiETY the sounds they were hearing indeed were not samples but the purposeful natural creations of the skilled artists behind “the UNMiXED 420 LiST“. The soul of side B had semblances of vocals that indeed were not but had the work called into questioning.

In the modern day music scene, it’s becoming less & less likely to have such original compositions, especially in hip-hop! However with “the UNMiXED 420 LiST” we’re treated with a double dosage two-part manifesto of instrument driven sounds compiling into one purely excellent listening session. Beat lovers and instrumental junkies rejoice, maybe puff a few dragons, and soak in the vibes of AGiLE SOCiETY in the purest form.

SIDE A FAVORITES: Cult, Go Harder, Let It Flow, Toy Story

SIDE B FAVORITES: Citybus, Coil, Open, Quagmire, Touch

These favorites just happen to be my personal vibes. Being an emcee myself when I listen to instrumentals I’m kind of always judging by whether I would really want to craft a record myself out of what I’m listening to. So with that those favorites are just the joints that had my lyrical mind flowing the most, however, there’s a ton to love throughout these two sides outside of my personal faves & even the records I maybe wouldn’t particularly write to are still standout offerings worthy of vibing out to. AGiLE SOCiETY continues their hot streak with yet another stellar release of which more is sure to come soon.
