Sounds pretty good but I woulda sequenced it slightly different. It starts off a bit flat but picks up pretty quickly a few tracks in or maybe you disagree:
Just 'cos I know some of you more time-challenged (or lazy) readers don't check everything posted so this is the track that most bloggers are throwing up separately:

More female rap out the T.dot although WAY more on the pop/R&B tip. I actually think this could be hit too though...
"Are you kidding? Me? Go back to making calls??!"
Apparently this 16 year old female MC from Toronto has got major labels down in the US and up here in Canada going NUTS when, out the blue, she recently got named to spit in one the BET Hip Hop Awards Ciphers this year. How'd that happen??! No matter, it's a good thing to see local talent getting that kind of platform of exposure no matter how random its genesis.
From what I'm being told, the feeling is that she could be the next Nicki Minaj. The next one??! Doesn't Nicki Minaj have be the first one by legitimatizing her own hype and current off-charts buzz by actually achieving some success on the back of her own album release before there can be a next one?? On the other hand, I'm glad labels finally think there's a future in female MC's again and I guess for that, we should acknowledge what Nicki has done to date, regardless!
As for this "Swaggberry" song - it's been banged pretty hard since July or so up here in the T.dot on Flow 93.5 and I think it could be a legit crossover hit single a la Cali Swag's "Teach Me How to Dougie" with the right team behind it. RIM might be (cleverly) running with a pretty extensive ad campaign for their ubiquitous Blackberry smartphone line touting it's BBM app, but this record might do more to extend it's growing popularity within the younger set at the expense of the iphone than any traditional ad campaign. Like I said on twitter a couple weeks back: they might owe Reema's label, G7 a check if that happens!

"Music lover, record collector, DJ, broadcaster… Perhaps most famous for his much loved genre-exploding radio shows on BBC Radio 1 (and 17 other stations around the world including Japan’s leading commercial station J-Wave), Gilles Peterson’s insatiable appetite for new music undoubtedly lies at the heart of his success. Worldwide is 10 years young and fresher than ever – a benchmark for broadcasters the world over.
Ten years in the making, this compilation is a tribute to a truly groundbreaking show, music and a serious music personality who is ahead of the curve and debuts awesome records on his show before anyone else. Gilles Peterson is a truly revered international club and radio DJ and one of music’s foremost tastemakers (possibly the most well known in the whole world) in a world dominated by style over substance.
The focus of this compilation is to present to its audience not just a DJ's favorite selection or songs that stood the test of time but it represents a great collection of songs and grooves premiered on Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide show before any other station in the world. It’s about music that Gilles has helped popularize across the world on his show which is syndicated in 15 countries. It’s a musical journey for DJ's and radio listeners across the world.
In addition to his Worldwide radio show, Gilles is also the head of Talking Loud Records where he introduced the world to Jamiroquai, Roni Size, 4 Hero, Courtney Pine, Brand New Heavies, Galliano and many more. He was a key founding member of the late 80’s Acid Jazz boom and recently set-up a new record label, Brownswood Recordings, to sign and develop exciting new talent as well as putting on his Worldwide Awards every year in London and the Worldwide festival every summer in the south of France. His compilation albums have become legendary and he continues to be a breath of fresh air on the dance floors of the world playing a unique selection of music that is rarely heard elsewhere."

Her voice floats effortlessly from heart-wrenching soul to the most abstract of timbres.

The audio experience is blended as a 31 minute mix showcasing some of Ms. Triana’s back catalog, remixes and rarities, sprinkled with ambient hip-hop instrumentalism and field recordings from the great city of London."

FREE Fela mp3 in celebration of the continuing reissue of his amazing catalog. Here's the science:
"September 14, Knitting Factory Records will release the third set of Fela reissues. This portion of the reissues series, entitled "Zombie" in celebration of Fela's most well known song, spans the years 1976 - 1980. Containing 11 albums, this period of Fela's storied career saw his Kalakuta Republic increasingly under siege from the Nigerian government, and the clear rise of his vitriol as it fermented into scathing musical diatribes. 13 CDs and 23 albums have already been re-released this year through this landmark reissue series, and the reaction has been rapturous as Fela's music continues to find new audiences every day.
The titles that are being released are:
Upside Down (1976) / Music of Many Colours (1980)
Stalemate (1977) / Fear Not For Man (1977)
Opposite People (1977) / Sorrow, Tears and Blood (1977)
Shuffering & Shmiling (1978) / No Agreement (1977)
V.I.P. (1979) / Authority Stealing (1980)
"What's fascinating about Fela's music at this point is the dichotomy between the music and the message," says Brian Long of Knitting Factory Records. "Out of context, these songs are incredibly upbeat and full of the hottest African funk, while in the context of Fela's life, when you read the lyrics and know the story, they are full of frustration and a fiery anger that was meant to lift the people into protest.""

In a city that has had many great cultural eras, 1977-1985, the period that birthed hip hop might be one of the greatest! Peep game:
"In the late 1970s, New York City was teetering on the edge of total chaos. Yet out of the economic and social strife that held the “Big Apple” hostage, a family of homegrown cultures that would forever change the world began to emerge. Downtown Calling not only documents in detail the evolution of the fertile music and art subculture of this period, but how its collective output continues to play a prominent, driving role in the international fashion, art and music industries today. Downtown Calling features an impressive spread of rare photography and archival footage, past and present day interviews with a wide array of internationally renowned luminaries, and a continual, driving soundtrack of classic music of the era."

"Das Racist have made an indelible imprint on the musical landscape with their irresistible pastiche of witty Dadaist-influenced raps, wry social commentary and tongue-in-cheek humor, and the trio returns with their strongest declaration to date. Today, the Brooklyn hip-hop crew is dropping their second mixtape of the year, Sit Down, Man, and it drips with their signature style you've come to expect while featuring a notable collection of producers including Diplo, Boi-1da, Dame Grease, Scoop DeVille, Teengirl Fantasy, Devo Springsteen and Chairlift, who also pull double duty as one of the many guest collaborators, joining the likes of El-P, Roc Marciano and Despot to name a few. The new collection is being presented by Diplo, Mad Decent, Greedhead Entertainment as well as returning partner Mishka.
The trio embodies a new generation of hip-hop, who borrow from the genre's trailblazers while pushing the limits and crafting their own blueprint. Sit Down, Man instantly reveals a group not only prolific but also one that matured exceedingly fast to new levels of art and musicianship. Their tongue-twisting, pop culture-referring rhymes flow steadily in unison with skilled production from a stellar collection of producers and contributors, with track titles like "All Tan Everything" and "Puerto Rican Cousins," embodying their clever content.

The EP features the single "Bitch," plus two remixes by DJs Lexy & Oliver Koletzki and The Beathoavenz. Bitch also includes three more tracks from Blink Blink: "Sauna," "Tell Me" and "Fatness."
Frogg is one-third London vocalist Mills, who fuses rap with a raw, English-witted tongue and vocals that harness an individual R'n'B flava. The complementing two-thirds of the group, Mo Delgado and Luke 4000 (Seeed), are Berlin talents, who draw on dubby electronic grooves and strong beats, without forgetting the importance of melody."

"When we started this blog about a year ago, living together in the same building, sharing the same passion for music, we were passing on links of the stuff we found online. It´s a bit like digging for wax - a lot of crap but then at the end of the box you find a beautiful piece of music. So the next step was to share what you find on an bigger platform. While browsing the web and selecting everyday what stuff is worth promoting, we meet artists who catch our attention. We just wanted more of their dope music. We invented this compilation as fans and asked our favorite underground producers to contribute. We´re happy to deliver you a selection of mainly unreleased beats. We thank all artists for contributing with us to make this happen."
I dig this! My references for deeply underground hip hop are pretty limited but for those who know better than me - If I say this sounds like what you might get if you mixed El-P and Dilla Donuts, am I too far from the mark?

"Billy Ocean's 1984 album, Suddenly, had gems such as "Caribbean Queen" and "Mystery Lady." Those tracks initially drew me to flip and chop the living sh*t out of this LP. This time around I even remixed Mos Def's "Priority" (from The Ecstatic album) over one of these Billy Ocean slappers and the outcome....well, let's just say its what made Billy utter the words "This sh*t is bananas!*"
