Download: ALPHABET’S HEAVEN // Jay’s Odyssey

This is a story in the style of old PS1 and Megadrive platform games… Jay starts off in a garden, and by meeting some fractured and fragmented characters journeys to alphabet’s heaven. It’s a look at the computer games Alphabets spent years playing; the jagged structure of them, and the kind of mindspace you find yourself in after directing a blue pixellated hedgehog for 5 hours. KING DELUXE is a label out of Salmo, British Columbia, with…

Preview King Deluxe’s Year Four compilation ft Alphabet’s Heaven, Jacob 2-2, Muta, more

The Canadian beats label celebrates its fourth anniversary with many artists it has brought to the fore, including Calvin Cardioid, Jacob 2-2, Muta, A Thousand Years, and the guy who first brought the label to my attention, Brighton bossman Alphabet’s Heaven.   The visuals for this label, from the ridiculous HR-FM, always knock me for six. Props! Side note: HR-FM’s Ultron! Buy the album now from Bandcamp (listen below!)…

It’s cool; lots of effort has gone into matching the animations to the song (and it is a song – I was gonna post about this EP, and Jonny’s production skills in general, but Oli at Sonic Router did a far better job). Make it go in your eyes and ears…

Interview: Super-Helpful Kwame

            To me, Kwame is one of the most passionate up-and-comers in the independent rap game.   The Brooklyn native is an embracer of more abstract sounds, as heard to maximum effect on his most recent full body of work, SoBeR. A contemporary of Pro Era, Kwame (then known as Kwame3000) formed one third of Super Helpful with Chuck Strangers (on mic duties with him) and Lee Bannon (producing), dropping the…
