DON’T SLEEP: Dert (Floyd) “Thr3e Instrum3ntals” [INSTRUMENTALS]

What had happened was one of my favorite producers Dert made a collaborative LP with Theory Hazit on Humble Beast and it’s easily one of the best albums of 2012. It’s called “Thr3e” and here are Dert’s instrumentals for these same jawns. Don’t sleep on them. As you can see, I don’t sleep at all…

The 21 track version of “Oakwood Grain II” drops with a free download of that version PLUS as a bonus you get the 2007 OG release “Oakwood Grain”. You get these bonuses only when you cop “Oakwood Grain II” directly from Nature Sounds, however so go HERE to do so and preview all 21 tracks. You can also cop the physical double disc of “Oakwood Grain I & II” from UGHH , Access Hip Hop or purchase it from iTunes and Amazon today. “Oakwood Grain II” vinyl ships on April 6th, 2012 via Fat Beats.

DON’T SLEEP: See Saw Kids (Xperiment x B.Lewis) “See Saw Kids Beat Tape Vol. 1” [BEAT TAPE]

On Twitter a few days ago I saw B.Lewis tweet about how he was mixing down the new See Saw Kids beat tape. I was like ‘WORD!”. If you’re a fan of the beat culture and have been following Xperiment or B.Lewis (Eight & ALORA) then you’ve been anticipating this damb beat tape. Especially after hearing their collaboration on SoundCloud. In any event, you can heat the completed beat tape after you download it from the Humble Beast site. Go there NOW. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Braille “Native Lungs” [FREE ALBUM]

The new Braille Humble Beast LP “Native Lungs” features cuts from Rob Swift, DJ Revolution & DJ Cassidy, guest verses from Theory Hazit and Odd Thomas in addition to production from Evidence, Khrysis!, Symbolyc One (S1), Ohmega Watts, Theory Hazit, Dave Notti, Xperiment, Trox, Odd Thomas, DJ Official, DJ Cassidy, Calvin Valentine & Braille himself. He came out of his own pocket for expenses for his 7th album by using proceeds from shows and guest appearances/features. After reading that lineup of features and producers you’d figure this album is insane, right? You know what’s even MORE insane about it? IT’S FREE. That’s right, Braille’s “Native Lungs” is a free release on Humble Beast. DON’T SLEEP!
