Instrumental hip hop

Post by Heathfinnie » Mon May 04, 2015 8:32 pm

Lately I've been listening to a lot of instrumental hip hop like J Dilla 'donuts' (my favorite), Madlib, Pete Rock, Shadow

Looking for some great stuff I might missed!

Quasimoto, both albums Instrumental versions
Madvillain Instrumental version
Dr. Octagon "Octogynocologist" Instrumental version
Company Flow "Little Johnny From The Hospital"

Those are my favorites, and actually rank fairly high on my Top Charts. Instrumental hip-hop can be super dope. enjoy

Damn, where to start, years ago I was listening to a lot of All City Records, dont know what their output is like today.

Onra is definitely worth checking out, especially if you like madlib stuff (though a bit weirder). He pulls a lot of samples from records he picks up in countries abroad, so lots of interesting non-western sounds

Gramatik has some pretty dope beats, too.

Also, came across this guy's beat tape on YouTube about 2-3 years back, using just a Boss SP-303, and a Kaossilator:

It'd be remiss of me to not suggest some of the golden era of Mo Wax, in particular one of my all time favourite albums Urban Tribe - the collapse of modern culture, the Heads compilations and most stuff by DJ Krush.

@bonefish67 GLK is dope

Here's some oldies with a scifi perspective...

The instrumental version of Cannibal Ox "Cold Vein"!

A bit more pop, but similar to the above is the instrumental version of Deltron 3030

I was just checking Knxwledge's stuff today, and I kinda like what I heard.

Another artiste that I would like to mention, is Mndsgn, who is also signed to Stones Throw.

Very nice eclectic 'old-school' vibe (for the lack of a better phrase) to his stuff.

Been listening a lot to the WT.PRT.8 record by Kwnxledge lately. It's excellent. Probably the best new record I've heard this year. Also been digging a Kid D record that got released last year.

Onra, Flying Lotus (not a big fan of the new jazzy stuff, but everything including Los Angeles and earlier is excellent), Kankick, Mike Slott, early Hudson Mohawke (new stuff is utter crap), Alex B, Jeremiah Jae, Blockhead, Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program (or with the Koreatown Oddity), Heralds of Change.

Word! Prefuse 73 has got a LOT of good shit out. Not a big fan of the record he released this year, but most of the stuff he releases is fantastic.

weird

i havent really dug into PF73 straight ahead beats (but i religiously collect savath y savalas and other projects)

even got into the whole eastern developments crew (eliot lipp, etc)
caural too
and blank blue era nobody beats

oh WAIT that reminds me...roberto carlos lange has amazing music under many names but for deep & dusty hip hop check everything under his defunct "epstein" moniker!

I never really liked GLK's records, and thought he was somewhat floating through on a reputation for having a great live show - didn't really like his mixes or tracks, but then I actually got to see him live (in 2012 or something) ... and it was just incredible. Fuck did that come from? Such a great mix, never heard him record anything like that. It was fantastic. Maybe I had just been smoking some really good stuff, haha.

Not sure he's making music anymore, but Fox Guts Daata is amazing. Loops Haunt as well (both Scots, I think).

Also a lot of good leftfield hip-hop beats stuff from Leaving Records - MatthewDavid, Dak, Oscar McClure, Durlin Lurt - those guys. Bought that DISK record directly from MatthewDavid when he released it a few years ago. It's incredible. One of the most inspiring pieces of music I've ever heard. Just insane. Very leftfield - insanely creative.

Shadow Huntaz (funckarma) instrumentals from their hip hop stuff are wicked.

i first got into GLK when his blackdisk mix was slipped in for free w/ a vinyl order years back...it was good enough to convince me, checked his myspace page and found more insanely catchy turkish psych funk beats

one reminiscent of "nissim" and i'd say that, along with "shattering inner journeys" & "kobwebs" are his best tunes

disk 1 is pure unadulterated genius!

hearing about loops haunt for some reason brings to mind lukid

also gotta recommend some daisuke tanabe stuff

Just watched a Fox Gut Daata set on the tube. This reminds me a lot of Tobacco's solo stuff. Hopefully the kids still jammin out...
