WreckFest, a hip hop tribute to con culture by Wreck the System

WreckFest, a hip hop tribute to con culture by Wreck the System

Wreckfest, the latest from hip hop group Wreck the System, has quickly grown on me. Wreck the System have really brought it for this full album tribute to con culture. I've been to a con or two in my life. I've also got bad social anxiety so that's all the cons I've been to in my life. That's why I'm a fan of the track Culture Shock. Look for me to be bumping more of these tunes over on the SUBCON podcast as well.

2 Mello – Streets of Resistance

2 Mello – Streets of Resistance

As with most Mello mash up albums, there is always that theme or through line. Basically, 2 Mello's mash up albums sound like fully realized albums, and not just a collection of mashups he just bundled up and shipped out. It's just one part of why 2 Mello is the man.

Streets of Resistance has a vibe as if the story is being told by all the 'criminals' living in… oh, the city doesn't have a name. Well, crime is a complex thing, you can't get rid of it by just beating it up. Even if you have a bad ass soundtrack while doing it.

From Guardia With Love, Richie Branson's hard hitting hip hop tribute to Chrono Trigger and more

From Guardia With Love, Richie Branson's hard hitting hip hop tribute to Chrono Trigger and more

I had the chance to catch Richie Branson perform at MAGWest a couple months back, and what a performance it was. Definitely got to catch this guy live, if you have the opportunity. This is his album from 2013, and also happens to be the album Branson sold to me, and then signed for me at MAGWest. It was the only album he had on him, but still, sold! It's not often I hear an album on CD.

Chopped up, hip hop tribute to games, anime, and more by Chief Takinawa in Hannya The 2nd: Blossoms

Chopped up, hip hop tribute to games, anime, and more by Chief Takinawa in Hannya The 2nd: Blossoms

Another wonderful album of chopped, flipped, and remixed beats via DJ Chief Takinawa. I've been following this guy for a few years now and have found constant enjoyment with his tunes. These tracks would feel right at home in a cel shaded bullet hell game. Really digging this album. I would have included the dope Gorillaz remix REPAIRS on the SUBCON podcast, but don't want to get hit with another blocked video on YouTube. You better give it a listen right now though. Track 5 yo.

Easy on the Ears, a collection of chill mixes by BeatmakerKelz

Easy on the Ears, a collection of chill mixes by BeatmakerKelz

BeatmakerKelz does it again! Beats that is! This guy is always dropping exactly what I want to hear, whether it be game music remixes, original beats, or whatever next thing he decides to chop of flip this time. Groove on these chill beats, ESPECIALLY that wonderful I Love Lucy remix that gets me way too nostalgic for some quality classic comedy shows.

Glitched out hip hop remixes and more by temp sound solutions

Glitched out hip hop remixes and more by temp sound solutions

Where are the seven other remixes? I'm not sure. I'm going to have to look into it. This one is more than worth worrying about now though. Five intense remixes that could best be described as metal glitch chiptune hip hop beats? Something like that. It's temp sound solutions tuesday though! You know the drill by now. Prepare your brain for some quality sounds and hit play.

Hip hop duo Mikal kHill & Int80 are: The TroubleShooters

Hip hop duo Mikal kHill & Int80 are: The TroubleShooters

I did not know about this when it dropped. Int80, one half of one of my favorite hip hip duo's Dual Core, teams up with Mikal kHill for this dope EP. A dozen minutes of dope rhymes and old school beats. Got some crunchy drums, grunged up guitars layered with fire on those vocals. Would leave to see that closing track 'shutdown -h now" live one day. I have seen Dual Core live a few times, and I'm sure that would be epic.

Death Note$, Anime inspired hip hop from Spiegz X Lyon

Death Note$, Anime inspired hip hop from Spiegz X Lyon

I bumped tracks from this album over on the SUBCON podcast a few times, but somehow I never featured the album itself. This album gots plenty of quality tracks. Particularly, I bumped Top Notch and Shinji over on the SUBCON show. Both got stuck in my head for a good while. Other current favorites are the early tracks El Niño and Snowblind. Hot stuff. Can't wait to hear what's next.

Latest hip hop album 'HOT' from J.ReaL Hip Hop

Latest hip hop album 'HOT' from J.ReaL Hip Hop

There is a lot of fire on this album. I guess that explains the title. I bumped music from this album on a past SUBCON episode. If you watch/listen to my SUBCON show, then you'd be way more on top of these dope game inspired emcees. The track 3rd, with that opening Mario Kart reference definitely grabbed my attention. The very on-the-nose hook on Yu-Gi-Oh is too over the top not to enjoy. Hit play!

Bizarre Arcade 2 : Nostalgia Kung Fu by ayekincaid | Ray Kincaid | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Bizarre Arcade 2 : Nostalgia Kung Fu by ayekincaid | Ray Kincaid | Free Listening on SoundCloud

Very hot rhymes by ayekincaid. I would name the stand out tracks but this album just has tracks I like. That multi-part opener is fire. I already bumped a track or two on the SUBCON podcast as soon as I heard this one. Don't sleep on this like I did. A few of these tracks have been bumping in my head ever since I started listening this album. Hope that downloadable version is really coming through soon though.

'Virtuoso,' smooth nerdcore hip hop from Aramis

'Virtuoso,' smooth nerdcore hip hop from Aramis

Some eclectic rhymes by Aramis on his latest album. It's a definite that some of these tracks are going to appear on a SUBCON podcast. Surprise dope emcees coming up is what keeps me doing this! Aramis' flow . The Chrono Trigger track! The whole albums hot, but Chrono Trigger man! Aramis lays it down smooth, and does that Mitsuda based beat the justice it deserves. Didn't know how much I needed more Chrono Trigger rap. Get this one.
