LNYCHPIN | A NYC COMPILATION

LNYCHPIN is a full length collaborative album featuring 16 emcees and 7 producers, all from NYC-based labels and crews, including Karma Kids, Reservoir Sound, Backwoodz Studioz, Uncommon and Smoker’s Cough. Curated by Lt Headtrip and Willie Green, LNYCHPIN showcases a distinct selection of NYC’s hip hop scene, notorious for it’s maverick temperament and progressive styles.

As established as the New York indie rap scene is, in many ways it’s still disparate; there are still separate crews, movements and alliances. Few people are uniquely positioned to reach different corners of the scene, but Lt Headtrip and Willie Green have established themselves as central figures, and LNYCHPIN is the result of that. Featuring up and comers, heavyweights and returning veterans, LNYCHPIN pairs combinations of emcees with the wide variety of hard hitting production only NY can provide in a spotlight of what is still one of the best and most forward leaning music scenes worldwide.

WAR CHURCH | GUNSHIP DIPLOMACY

 

Coming from Houston and Chicago, producer Analog(ue) Tape Dispenser and rapper SKECH185 have been making music together for the last decade. Starting with 2011’s “New Age Middle Finger,” they have been crafting their heavy and sometimes bizarre vision of hip-hop, fueled by ATD’s sample heavy, IDM influenced production, and SKECH’s frighteningly quick staccato delivery and metaphorical-heavy social commentary. The fall of 2016 has the duo back together, under the moniker War Church, to release a new album, “Gunship Diplomacy.” Dense, heavy, uncompromisingly smart, yet oddly danceable, “Gunship Diplomacy” shows two seasoned artists breaking new limits to create an album that stands outside the genre.
