AJB came across this so hype duo from Dennmark called Qaudron based of COCO & ROBIN. The music is a soulful/jazzy vibe with a touch of modern soul. One of the most best things about them is her voice -Just simply beautiful with a bit of reminder of Corinne Bailey Rae and the beats fits it just perfect. In July 28th they released the album 'Quadron' - Buy it here.
Thanks to Ray Knowledge.
Message from GAS'D :
This season has been one of constant shift. Depending on one’s chosen level of perception, this shift can be seen as good or bad. In my case, I see it as good. It is in the Universe’s nature to maintain balance. So, though this summer has taken many lives from us, it has also brought life unto us. It is with that surge of life that we are becoming aware of what is essential for our existence. It is not money, material wealth or social popularity. It is Love, Health, and Creation. Three elements that we are born with and need no exterior source to provide for us. We all have the gift of love, we all are capable of healing ourselves, and we are all co-creators with The Creator, capable of manifesting as vessels of the highest universal frequency.
This passed June we experienced the loss of a spirit that though constantly confronted with demons, accepted his responsibility to carry out his purpose as a lover and creator to the fullest degree he was capable of. Michael Jackson gave until he could no longer, and even in his passing…he gave. With his transition, he released his spirit back into the universe, affecting all of us through energy. Awakening our 6th sense and a trust in our God given gifts, we have rediscovered love…
Personally, this summer has birthed and re-birthed many connections to God/Love that I either lost track of or never knew I had. Through individual enlightenment, as well as collaboration and creation with other loved ones.
This season has been good to me, and it is with that energy that I present this piece.
A love collaboration with a brother and inspiration of mine, Cazeaux OSLO…
This is our birthday gift for MJ…a gift for you

Man hows life been treating you?
Life has been very good. Everyday you wake up is a good day in this world LOL.
I know you've been crazy busy, you got new projects under way?
IM constantly working on beats, but most recently I have just completed and EP with Don Will from the group Tanya Morgan. Its something that im very proud of. I cant wait for people to hear it! it will be avail on Sept 1st at www.rappersiknow.com I also have just started a fully digital record label called Mega Royal, we are still working on all the details, but stay tuned for that!
So what happen on 9-9-08 (day you got robbed...and became Viktum)?
The actual date is 9/9/99 . I wont go into too much detail, but I was very very young, and was just not a good judge of character. An mc who i was producing broke into my studio, and took all my gear while I was at School. So I took the moniker "Rob Viktum" as my own personal Fuck You to them...
Man i was in Texas during Ike! i took off to Florida how did you deal with it?
It wasnt bad in Dallas where I live. come to think of it, I dont remember too much about it at all..LOL.
Does anyone have a better beard than you??
NO..LOL, im sure there is, someone always is better..thats life..
Tell us about beat fanatic.
Beat Fanatic is a crew of beat makers and producers across the states and UK. It was founded by Slop Funk Dust who is a HIGHLY slept on producer from Florida. Peace to Slop Funk...
The info red project was crazy nice you got anything coming up with him again?
How was it like working with the legendary Mr. Dibbs (atmosphere)?
Dibbs is pretty much my older brother. we are completely opposite in almost everything musically, but we are the closest of friends. I owe a lot to Dibbs.
When you heard bout Baatin were where you?
I was at home, working on a beat.
What are your memories of memories?
Memories are used to build on future endeavors.
How did you hook up with Jabee & Mac Lethal?
I've know Mac for years from going to Scribble Jam in cinci. I met Jabee even longer ago by doing shows in Oklahoma City. The song you are probably refering to is the joint on jabee's mixtape. Mac sent his verse over another beat, Jabee asked me to remix it, then jabee rappers on it, added some singers, and boom there you go..lol. interesting fact about that song, its the first time Mac and I have ever worked togather, even after knowing each other for all these years.
is a FRESH street wear clothing company out of Oklahoma City owned by my homie Ob 1 (who is a dope producer as well) .. peace to OB 1!!!!

Damu released his official debut album as a member of Y Society. The album Travel at Your Own Pace was released on October 10, 2007, to positive reviews. The album is reminiscent of true-school hip-hop with its liberal use of jazz and soul samples and scratching throughout. In 2008 Damu released 2 free albums primarily composed of instrumental music, entitled Spare Time and Overtime. Damu The Fudgemunk has built himself a respectable and loyal fanbase through his unique Youtube videos and live street performances around Washington, DC and New York City, which requires him to use a portable electricity generator to power his drum machine and speakers.

The swedish producer Erik L who previously dropped the record Different Phase with the duo 'Favorite Flava' based on him & Stray, Is now in the process of makin an instrumental album which from the start was meant to be an EP. He sent me some exlusive snippets from the upcomin Album which name is yet unkown. Erik L says: What you can expect from the album is a futuristic sound with a lot of funk mixed with soul and a jazzy feeling. In this album Erik L didnt sample much & actually played almost all the instruments himself, with that said we can tell this is a really creative album! The album will drop soon in a near future so keep your eyes opend. For some more Erik L also look out for the collaboration album between him and Illingsworth called the 'Northen Connection' & the EP 'Kitty Kat Kaboodle' with the emcee Cerebral Vortex. Erik L got a lot of thing going on, expect an entrance on the sequal of the Beat Dimensions series ' Beat Dimensions 2' dropping this fall!
