Back in October 10th, highly respected OH producer Fat Jon released his latest instrumental album “Rapture Kontrolle” under his alias Maurice Galactica through Japanese label HydeOut Productions on CD and vinyl. The wide digital release happened a few days ago on November 9th. I hadn’t seen much written about it so I decided to investigate for myself. Turns out that it’s not that easy to find so I’ll help you PIK frequenters out with where to purchase it. You can cop Fat Jon’s “Rapture Kontrolle” direct from HydeOut in digital form HERE (consult your JPY to USD conversion charts first) or from UK iTunes (consult your GBP to USD conversion charts first) or it you want a simple USD purchase for under $10, I’d suggest Amazon ($8.99). Since I get readers/frequenters from all of the world it makes sense to cover every base. I’ve personally had this album for a while (of course I did), don’t sleep on it…
Japanese Hip Hop/Soul/R&B production legend Nujabes’ posthumous album “Spiritual State” will drop December 3rd, 2011 via HydeOut Productions. It features guest appearances from Cise Starr, Pase Rock, Substantial, Uyama Hiroto and Haruka Nakamura and promises to be a beautiful collection of Nujabes material. You can pre-order “Spritual State” direct from HydeOut Productions or Tower Records in Japan as it’s currently a Japan only release and probably won’t see an American release (possibly through iTunes) until early 2012. Rest in eternal peace Jun Seba. DON’T SLEEP!
