1. "Girls, Nachos" - ShowYouSuck

    Posted by Justin Boland on Sep 10, 2013 | 0 Comments

    Chicago’s ShowYouSuck is one of my favorite rappers these days and this video is pure DMT. A lot of press coverage treats this cat like a goofy joke but this is dead-serious trap surrealism. (Or something.) Director Aaron Perkins Jr has created a gleefully unhinged piece of work here.

  2. "Secret Garden 2" - DLoaw & Co.

    Posted by Justin Boland on Sep 09, 2013 | 0 Comments

    DLoaw & Co. are a trio of “sound diggers” from France, Belgium and Greece…and these folks have superb taste. Secret Garden 2 is a rare treat of a compliation, diverse but cohesive, featuring quality instrumental hip hop from genre heavyweights like Dirty Art Club, Mononome & Jon Kennedy. (You might also find a tasty composition from Dr. Quandary in the mix, too.)

  3. Daimyo & Friends

    Posted by Justin Boland on Sep 08, 2013 | 0 Comments

    It makes sense that the first LP from Daimyo would be 30 tracks long. A multi-instrumentalist, composer type who linked up with World Around when he was 15 years old, his interests are too wide-ranging and ambitious for a normal sized album.

  4. "Breakup Music" - Humpasaur Jones

    Posted by Justin Boland on Sep 03, 2013 | 0 Comments

    Sure, I’m posting this to Audible Hype my own shit, but i can at least give an honest account of how this project got created. This is a six track EP that took four or five years to make, depending on your religious beliefs about the moment of conception. I have procrastinated, over-thought and second-guessed this beautiful nightmare for way too long and it feels great to have it done.

    I’ve been tightening up my video promo this year, starting with the Humpasaur Jones project. I’ve been getting into elaborate lyrics videos, like this puppy here…

  6. VIDEO: Eliquate - "The Nineties"

    Posted by Justin Boland on Nov 27, 2011 | 0 Comments


    It’s rare that I get something in my inbox dope enough to post — but this video is a great example of dirt cheap creativity that really delivers the goods.

    Fresh music from Zilla Rocca, our resident philosopher and crime novelist. This time he’s going in over a Dr. Quandary composition and trading verses with Has-Lo of Mello Music Group.

  8. Dr. Khil - "Khilgore Trout"

    Dr. Khil - Khilgore Trout

    Came across an excellent beat tape from a producer I first crossed paths with many, many moons ago in the Myspace days. Rather than simply re-posting it, I hit up Dr. Khil for an interview about his process and DIY hustle. This cat is focused and talented, and it’s a safe bet you’ll be hearing a lot more about him in 2011…

  9. Louis Mackey & Thirtyseven - "No Humans Allowed"

    No Humans Allowed

    Sorry things have been slow here — I’m on the road and I released a new album, so I’ve been falling behind here at Audible Hype. I figured the best way to get things moving again would be a full report on the process and the results behind my latest project, No Humans Allowed.

  10. TeV95 - Crime Loops 2

    Posted by Justin Boland on May 09, 2011 | 0 Comments

    Writing intros can be hard, but not this time: the first installment of Crime Loops was fucking awesome and the sequel is even better. I am passing it along so that Audible Hype readers can enjoy some high-grade, Brooklyn fresh, instrumental hip hop.
