Kero One – Windmills Of The Soul (2006)

Fans of Nujabes & Lightheaded rejoice… Kero One is here. Left coast MC & Producer puts it down for you in the tradition of other jazz-hoppers. Excellent production (especially on the tracks which is also a plea to keep vinyl alive, Keep It Alive! and Check The Blueprints). I originally copped this one right after the release in 06, but I haven’t heard anything about Kero since (expect for the track he did with Rashaan Ahmad a while back).

Sound Providers – An Evening With The Sound Providers (2004)

The album features guest appearances from Little Brother, The Procussions, Asheru and others. Fans of People Under the Stairs, INI, Crown City Rocks, and Kero One will love this one, but fans of old school cats like Tribe, De La Soul, and Pete Rock & CL Smooth should be able to feel this release as well. Download it and if you like it, cop it here.

Hell if you like Jazz and you like Hip-Hop there’s no doubt in my mind you’ll thoroughly enjoy this joint. Who would’ve thought two cats from Amsterdam could put it down so well (the emcee is Aruban born, so don’t worry… he spits in perfect English)?
