Gordy Micheal invites your mind on a warped quest through aural space with his ambient beats. Comfort evokes the true feelings of being comfortable and allures you into a chilled-out mood. The soft piano brings an early 1920’s jazz vibe to the piece. No longer than 2 minutes, his tracks are short yet golden.

The Hip-Hop cats will appreciate this banging SP-1200 shit from Broke/. Some simple laid back jazzy hip-hop loops.

FLOW – Palm Tr33 by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective picked up Melbourne’s  FLOW around 9 months ago after peeping an amazing live set. His first album has finally hit the Internet for your listening pleasure. If described in one word? I’d use something like ‘trippy’. Melbourne is surely delivering on the electronic beat goodness lately.

I’ve suddenly found myself jumping head-first back into that jazzy brand of trip-hop which I love so much; Hubert Daviz dropped this smooth remix of Grand Puba‘s A Little of This around a year ago and I’m digging it.



Duke Westlake – Re. Turn by Chris

Duke Westlake’s Re. Turn is an impressive 30 tracks large. Ranging from chillout to electronica to straight up hip-hop, this album contains an impressive variety of different sounds and samples, worth hitting play and kicking back to.

Released by the soulful hip-hop centred Mello Music Group (Oddisee, Apollo Brown), the whole thing only costs an easy $7.50 to be yours to keep, or just stream it on Bandcamp above.

Tayreeb – Make Music by Chris

Leaks – I’m Glad You’re Still Here by Chris

Fuck the Radio Collective homeboy Leaks went quiet for a bit while travelling.

Good to have him back. This track gets my BRILLIANCE tag.



Spoonty – Feels by Chris

Eleven groovy beats by Sydney producer Spoonty have made their way onto bandcamp for a new release called Feels. Quite a well-polished production overall, this is no mere collection of rough ‘n raw beats with none of the tracks falling below three minutes; these are all fully fleshed out grooves to get down to.

Something about this album reminds me of the style of Bonobo, which can never be a bad thing. Heaps sings out with immaculate vocal chops while Forest makes use of a smoothly carved up flute. Quite frankly, the samples fit perfect like honey and lemon- while the beats are as smooth as Morgan Freeman’s voice after a nice honey and lemon tea. The whole thing is musically delicious experience.



Terracotta Blue – Other Eden by Chris

Terracotta Blue, producer from Washington DC, transmits his enthusiasm for chill wave and trip hop by creating his own unique fusion of heavenly samples and delicate drums.  His latest album Shine Again is a collection of radiant beats that fill my soul with love.

Other Eden, the last and certainly not least track of Shine Again, harmoniously completes this blissful album through its modulating dynamics. The heart-warming track takes you on a luminous and joyful voyage through layers of satisfying sounds. Constantly developing, this beat evolves from minimal to decorative, and then to the pleasant repetition of a woodwind descending perfect fourth (oh so satisfying). The tension is re-heightened through a rousing crescendo of percussion until the snare sneaks in and truly hits the spot. This kind of drop had me gasping and laughing in awe of its pure perfection all the way to the smooth fade out.

The whole 10-track album is available for a pick-your-price download on Bandcamp.



O D S – Dirty Socks Vol. 3 by Chris

San Francisco producer/MC Old Dirty Socks (or LO his rap alias) is an imminent artist from the US who is gaining popularity globally, having worked with Aussie legend Ta-Ku on a compilation project Night Swimmers as well as names like Prof. Logik, Fonetik Simbol and Venezuela’s Doktor Rheal to name a few. Releasing both instrumental beats as well as a few vocal tracks, ODS is a versatile musician with a clear passion for hip hop that manifests in his composition, both production and flow.

Dirty Socks Volume Three is the perfect combination of raw hip-hop percussion under and evocative jazzy melodies. The irresistible vinyl crackle and nostalgic vibes of each beat hold the album together to create a natural and effortless story through a warm selection of classic 70s soul samples. Similar to Apollo Brown and Mattron who have that same filtered soul style. The seemingly seamless flow of each track as well as that chopped vinyl/trip hop sound we all dig make this an accessible album over which to spit rhymes and jam, two-step with your lover, or just to bop your head to and max out. Not your typical neck snapping beats; the album is a delightful mixture of subtle beat drops and boom bap drums.



Alta – Stay Awhile by Chris

ALTA are no strangers to Fuck the Radio but if for some reason you ignored our urgings to GO GRAB THEIR BRILLIANT FREE EP last time, perhaps this reminder will sway you. Check out the dope new video above while you are at it.
