Shooting to Sirius and beyond, the intense and intergalactic slowmotion grooves of Portformat finally hit space!
NASA-compatible Hip Hop Funkadelica is what to expect on Portformat's debut album released into orbit, musically combining space themes of the 70s with the golden moments of 90s R'n'B.
R'n'B shooting stars such as Georgia Anne Muldrow, Shuanise and Suzi Analogue shine on Portformat's beats from his Repeat Factory. Rappers such as Madlib-vocalist Dudley Perkins, Blaktroniks, Obey the Altar Native, Bless1, Gajah and Thesaurus Rex also join the ride. The album was even mixed by Comfort Fit for an extra galactic boom!
Listen here: The Repeat Factor (full previews enabled)
Release date is December the 3rd 2009, available as collector's CD and worldwide digitally!

Belcima koji se bave soulom, hip hopom i ostalim muzičkim žanrovima koji potiču iz afro-američke zajednice potrebno je duplo više dokazivanja i truda nego njihovim kolegama tamne puti. Srećom, imamo dosta primera veoma uspešnog oslanjanja na jedan žanr pa čak i prevazilaženje ili nadogradjivanje istog sopstvenim idejama koje afro-amerikanci verovatno nisu ni uzimali u obzir kao što je korišćenje elektronike umesto fanki ili džez semplova. Nažalost Mayer Hawthorne nije primer takvog izvodjača. Iako ga zaljubljenici u muziku hvale kao nekoga ko oživljava stari soul, ovaj dečko iz Detroita nije nam svojim prvim albumom A Strange Arrangement pružio ništa što već nismo čuli. Raphael Saadiq je pokušao istu stvar prošle godine i nije se baš proslavio, ali Raphael kao neko ko je dobrim delom zaslužan za razvoj neo-soula može sebi da dozvoli takve izlete, a novajlija kao Mayer tek treba da se pokaže!Deluje da su kritičari i sami svesni toga…

2 Nov 2008, 01:16 by Kapitankraut1. Fantan Mojah - "Hail to the King"
Some reggae, if the artist name didn't suggest as much. This is proper reggae to start off with at least, in fact it sounds rather like the nyabinghi style which doesn't get played much at all. Fantan's got a great voice, sort of like Mykal Rose. This is a good little song.
2. Elysian Blaze - "Dark Are My Nights"
Funeral doom/black metal from Australia. This particular track is a rather standard ambient intro-sounding thing, but I like the sound.
3. Dudley Perkins - "Flowers"
Neo soul, which is always a bit of an iffy style of music. The music itself is quite good, but his voice isn't.
4. Rwake - "Leviticus"
Some sludge now. This starts with a pleasant, if repetitive, riff, before exploding into that sludge sound we all know so well. While it's a style that every man and his dog is performing these days, this band doesn't do it badly at all.
5. Mono - "The Flames Beyond the Cold Mountain"

Thes One - the history behind his debut instrumental album, Lifestyle Marketing
Please introduce yourself
My real name is Chris Portugal. I am also part of the duo the People Under the Stairs (PUTS). A dedicated duo who have never used a computer in the formation of their music.
As for Thes One project, I am constantly looking for new wax to find revelations in the form of old school beats. I write rhymes, but stay away from the norm in hip hop and write uplifting lyrics to bring you up. Because

30 Nov 2007, 05:23 by nate32xSome days I think the surreality of Busdriver’s music depicts the world with more reality than my own lying eyes. Busdriver’s rapidfire, puzzler lyrics keep one’s brain pleasantly parsing — a new, new school version of when you first tried to figure out what De La Soul was talking about on “3 Feet High and Rising.”
The singing, melodies, genre-bending beats, and sound effects bump, and the songs are tighter and more perfected than other music that I might try to lump together in a category of eccentric, stream-of-consciousness, lyrically jazzy, nonsense hip hop. By those adjectives I mean, a Busdriver mood might not be too different from an AWOL ONE, Dudley Perkins, Stones Throw, or MF DOOM side project mood. But “RoadKillOvercoat” is an achievement in that it deserves to be in your normal rotation, not just your postmodern madness mix.
“RoadKillOvercoat” is musically daring in that Busdriver heads into rock and electronic territory. But the music is good. I’m willing to go there, and call it hip hop.
