Prof. Logik: 
Prof.Logik is 32 year old Gregory Grant a born and raised south-side Jamaica Queens, New York progressive hip-hop producer currently residing in Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA. Despite being a self-described “yank“, the professor’s music clearly has southern and international influences throughout.

"Cosmoore is bringing the harmony of the universe to the stage with his expansive sonic vibrations. It’s not an accident that his name shares so many letters with “cosmos.” Listening to his dreamy tracks is a transportive experience that leads to the astral realms. Cosmoore also draws inspiration from nature, but it’s more about pulling in the energy of Gaia rather than being influenced by a specific landscape. He takes a shamanic approach to music-making, crafting sweet sounds that invoke transcendent experiences."

NC Musician, Artist, DJ & Producer influenced by sonic atmospheres, aural textures, ambient surfaces and deep meanings.

I'm not really a bro. I just like making music.

NahhG is an beat-maker born and raised in Charlotte, NC. Blending the familiar sounds of foreign jazz and soul with hip-hop, he takes you on a unique head bobbing experience with his music. Catch his radio show Tuesday Trips on NTS Radio monthly, with different up and coming artists from around the world.

Brett Leggitt or "Deku" is an Atlanta producer who makes loop-based experimental electronic music. Being very fickle and constantly infatuated with some new sound, instrument, or technique results in the producer covering a wide palette of styles and genres. His self-described "primitive" methods give his music a unique texture and flavor all it's own. As such, many of Deku's works are littered with a variety of sources covering the spectrum from field recordings and noise pollution to found sounds, traditional samples, and hand-crafted (and recorded) instrumentation. 

25 Yrs old. I love making music more than anything in the world. i do it for the love and preservation of all music culture! i love my fans and appreciate anybody who appreciates my art

Simon SMTHNG: 
Simon SMTHNG: Producer. Recording Artist. DJ. 704. Genres are stupid.

Oak City Slums: 
It’s not often a person just wakes up one morning and starts living their dream. However, that’s exactly how Rodney Finch became Oak City Slums, a hip-hop/bass producer that’s dropped chill beats across the Triangle — from Neptunes to The Ritz. Influenced by producers like Jersey Club, Baltimore Club, Digitalism, Crystal Castles, and J Dilla, Oak City Slums pulls from a mixed texture of sound, ranging from poppy and vibrant to dark electronic. In the other ear, he draws from jazz sample bass. With a punk and death metal background and years of experience drumming for his church band, Oak City Slums was born.

An NC/SC native hidden in the sounds. Never setting a limit to what he would like to create. From boom bap to 808's under melodic chords he admires them all. A student before anything but also an artist, producer and engineer. He is AMWA(A Man With Antlers)

Don’t take refuge in the false security of consensus
Xtals: crystallography in music

Panther God: 
Panther God (Paul Gaeta) is a musician, producer, artist, and founder of Circuitree Records. His most recent LP, Golden Changes (2014, Outside Recordings) is a masterful album that synthesizes elements from hip hop, jazz, soul, and experimental electronic sounds and creates something wholly new. Panther God manifests chromatic burst of synesthetic sounds that balance the innermost workings of a mind ablaze with the deepest bodily experiences of bass and beat drops. The music is distinctively his own, but it also moves effortlessly between joy and darkness, minimalism and rich expression. Panther God lives in Asheville, NC.

Mr Atomic: 
Owner/Co-Founder of Outside Recordings LLC, Kris oversees and releases music by an international collective of Mega Talented Artists, Producers and DJs Like ADJ, Mindelixir, 214, Scanone, Roel Funcken and Tropa. A respected DJ and Producer, Kris performs as Mr. Atomic and draws influences from heavy doses of Miami Bass, Electro, Detroit Techno, Dub Reggae and Hip Hop. Kris has performed with Huge Electronic acts like Flying Lotus, Moby, Shpongle and EOTO as well as curating cutting edge events with the Outside Collective like Tipper, Salva and Phoenecia.

Eric B & Rakim "Paid In Full" TTL Limited Money Green Pressing

Turntable Labs first collaboration with French label Culture Factory / Universal nets this super crispy (money green) pressing of "Paid In Full" complete with printed inner sleeve and sharp cover graphics. Obi-strip 'cause it's an import and adds extra-pop. One time pressing of 500 copies, and that's all.

Get it here (while they last) - 


We couldn't let this week pass without doing a tribute to Prodigy. These were arguably the hardest NY street records of the genre. Period.
I mean, I know you've seen that clip where Preemo starts playing Shook Ones & the crowd completely loses their shit???? Well yeah, these records are like that.

Respect. #keepitthoro
