He makes up for that this year however with two releases using the name, the second of which is this – The Dope EP Vol.1 which is – well – dope. Available in both digital and vinyl 7″ format, what you get on both is a six track EP. Wait, what?! Six

FRAMEWORKS & BLURUM 13: Moonlighting (2013)

Reliable transatlantic hip-hop duo Frameworks & Blurum 13 release a new single off the rather solid Brickbuilders LP and it’s latin-tinged slab of musical masonry Moonlighting.

One glass of blackberry lemonade down and he’s all spun out by the hypnotic eyes of a woman on a

RENEGADES OF JAZZ: Hip To The Remix (2012)

On which Renegades Of Jazz continues his mission to reclaim use of the word ‘hip’ to mean ‘rather well-informed about and appreciative of’ from its association with a certain eighties yuppie pop anthem.
