RIBS (Reviews In Brief) for the week of 9/16/2015 ft. Asend, Kordisepz, Mr.Sham, Belzar, RasJosh Beats, Kaine


from staff writer Tristan Douglas’ week
1.

Asend Beats – After Hours EP


Asend is an MPC-wielding boom-bapping funkmaster who keeps a doobie lit. Don’t miss his soothingly melodic and chill first release, the After Hours EP


2.


Kordisepz- Infekt & Rejektz beat tapes

Both of these whole tapes are dopeness… Kordisepz knows hip-hop but he sounds destined to score crazy films in my opinion. His music will challenge and entertain you.

3. SoundCloud Overview: Mr. Sham
                  
                  Mr.Sham is the artist that not only got me more into poetry and spoken word but also got me into the melding of the two. As one of the main MCs in West Coast Avengers, he provides fun nerdcore paintings in verse form but as a poet in his own right he is one of the most formidable image-machines and expressers of the heart that I have ever come across. His recent works with RasJosh Beats “Prowlin’” (co-produced by GL Kool) and “Robbin’” are dark and spacious in their booming post-society yet urban sound. Others with RasJosh such as “Geronimo” incorporate nerdcore and uptempo bass for a fun and still slick product. As West Coast Avengers (full disclosure: my group!) enter the half year point of promoting their latest LP (The Inland Empire Strikes Back), expect more leaks from their individual members like this… https://soundcloud.com/seanbobo/geronimo

Kaine aka NoEnd MC - "Ramen & Tacos" Teaser & Bad Chemistry EP

      NoEnd Emcee AKA Kaine of Institute Esylum is one of those dudes who has crazy bars and when you stop and listen to his work you realize it’s an incredibly cynical and razor sharp perspective on society, human nature and institutions. Check out his Bad Chemistry EP for some ear candy and peep his new “Ramen & Tacos” teaser and get hyped for his hella IE-repping project coming soon. http://soundcloud.com/kainetheinsane/bad-chemistry-unbroken-chain
