ras g - Down 2 Earth
Storming new album on Ramp Recordings from Ras G, featuring no less than 19 tracks. Ras has been a cult figure among beat-heads for at least three years, with a string of dizzying releases on labels like Brainfeeder, All City and Poo-Bah; he actually first appeared on Ramp back in 2009 with the impeccably wonked-out Destination Three EP. If you've been following him all this time, you'll know roughly what to expect: druggy boom-bap derivations that wear their Dilla influence proudly (if you had any doubts about where your man's coming from, there's a track on here called 'I Love The '90s Hip Hop' that should clear things up). That said, he's not afraid of leaps into the unknown - the red-eyed afro-dub of '(((Shrooms)))' is a real stand-out, as is the backwards-processed spiritual raga 'Peace (Salaam)'. Fans of Samiyam, Gonjasufi, Matthewdavid, FlyLo and low-slung, forward-thinking beats in general need to check this latest Cali broadcast sharpish.
