naturetone - Nihon (2010)

This is a somewhat different post as this is my own album. It's a full-length tribute to the music and culture of Japan, blending live instruments, synthesizers and Golden Era Hip Hop production influences.

Dr. Quandary - Beyond All Spheres of Force and Matter (2010)

Make sure to check out this album by Boston based musician/producer Dr. Quandary. It's no free download but the man collects some money to make a vynil release. Isn't this a good reason to spend five bucks?
