Onra – Fundamentals (ACOLPx3)

04.16.15 Posted in Blog, Releases by

OnraLP

Welcoming Onra back to All City we are delighted to present the Parisian producers third solo LP on the label titled “Fundamentals”. This record, a paean to 90s hip hop & r n b long players, is a LP which wears its golden era inspirations proudly on its sleeve. Far more than the sum of its influences its a retro futuristic sound looking back but thinking forward. A collaborative project with a busy line up, which has taken a while to cook up, the features run the gamut from back in the day heads to box fresh ones. Taking the production levels up a notch with a more crafted, polished sound across the whole LP, MPC produced with no computer software used! Young Harlem MC Perrion kicks off proceedings he makes the step up from mixtapes to vinyl effortlessly. Cool Kid Chuck Inglish flies solo on “So Long” and long time Onra friend Olivier Day Soul pairs up with Dogg Pounder Daz Dillinger on one for the Lowriders – “We Ridin”. Cult Chicago rap group Do or Die also team up with a soul singer – their old collaborator Johnny P – “Over & Over” has the whole Rap A Lot crew in action and the soulful theme continues with a Suzi Analogue slow jam and Dutch MC Melodee on a Love Tip. KC of bubbling up London collective Last Night in Paris shows why he can count Pharrell among his devotees and other guests include rap crew the Doppelgangaz and Black Milk, who brings it to a close, ending a very personal project for the French producer, built on hip hop and R n B foundations and flipped in his own signature style.

Fundamentals will be released on Digital Formats May 15 with Vinyl CD to follow June 1. The record will be proceeded by a 12 featuring We Ridin b/2 Over & Over.

Herva – HTMYO (ACH12x1)

02.23.15 Posted in Blog, Releases by

ACH12x1_Herva_300Refreshingly original 6 track 12 from Italian producer Herva. If you peeked his recent Instant Broadcast LP on Delsin youll know that he runs the whole gamut from the sample based broken beat leanings of How to Mind your Own, to the frenetic techno sound of Pressure Bumps via the melodic Aphex style vibes of She Is. And thats just the A side. All in all, a rewarding listen, a dense layered EP – a collage of a whole spectrum of influences that fits nicely into the All City no style canon.

Druguse – Hood Rich Life (ACDRUGS12x1)

01.14.15 Posted in Blog, Releases by

28798
Los Angeles meets Chicago on this infectious, energetic 12. 6 tracks from a mysterious producer going by the name of Druguse inspired by juke and footwork sounds. A more drugged out Cali sun drenched hazier version of the Chicago sound, but theres barely time to catch your breath for that bong hit as this 12 baits along with the same frenetic pace and energy of its the Mid West inspirations. All anchored by vocal hooks, theres a strong hip hop feel to this quirky and original 12.

  2. Elevate Listen Now
  3. ITS Listen Now
  4. Hater Hymn Listen Now
  5. Twenty Two Listen Now

The Cyclist – Flourish (ACCYCLPx1)

10.23.14 Posted in Blog, Releases by

ACCYCLPX1_small
Second time out on the label – this time as the Cyclist – the Derry producer who also records as Buz Ludzha returns with a 7 track LP of pure pedal power building on 2013s Bones in Motion foundations.

A more accomplished sound than his previous LP, it will certainly reward repeated listening. From the tribal sounds of Ripples Through Ice to the proto hardcore sound of Tape Grunge Rave through his signature Tape Throb sound of Daisy Spirals before rounding it out with the uplifting vibes of the title track- Flourish, its Lo-fi but not cheap, D.I.Y but not primitive, dance-y but not club-y, 4-4 but not straight.

Its unconventional unmixability makes us delighted to release this record which may fit into a lot of genres but doesnt fully belong in any.

Tracklist

  1. Ripples Trough Ice Listen Now
  2. Breathless Listen Now
  3. Sand Dunes Listen Now
  4. Break Through Listen Now
  5. Daisy Spirals Listen Now
  6. Flourish Listen Now
  7. Tape Grunge Rave Listen Now
