Straight from the Ghetto - News on HipHop, pt. 21

You being a fan of smooth, silky beats with Ragga- , HipHop- and DigiSoul-influenced vocals on top? Then listen up and defo check out Channel Two's newest album named "Artful Time Reduction" which has been released by Kajmere Sounds recently. The duo soundsystem travelled the world to record this album featuring a broad variety of vocalists like Patrice, Slim Kid Tre of The Pharcyde-fame, Kim Hill, Joy Jones plus many more and deliver a whole of 13 sexy tracks to be filed under high quality adult entertainment. And no - we not talking porn here!

Young Buck’s new album “Buck The World” is announced for march 2007 and the first teaser 12” is out on the circuit right now featuring two tracks taken off it for DJ-club abuse. A-side “Get Buck” is a dark slow tune based on a bassline figure quite similar to the well-known “Godzilla” main title, while “Haters” on the flip represents a more releaxed attitude beatwise and will be used as instrumental tunes not only by HipHop- but also by Downtempo- / TripHop-jocks.

Yes, the musical chameleon named Gwen Stefani is not necessarily known for being involved in HipHop / DigiSoul but as her new single “The Sweet Escape” , taken from the album of the same name, is closer to this kind of urban sound than anything else it well fits into this column, even more as it features a remix by Konvict with singer Akon on vox. Original tune is a swinging, shuffled Pop-song that works well in Bashment / Freestyle sets I reckon.
