tdel : Ascend and Return [DTH009]

tdel is the abbreviated alias of Tom deLaubenfels, a resident of Atlanta, Georgia. A lifelong enthusiast of electronic sounds and music, Tom has been experimenting with production for a number of years while continuing to explore his love of deep and hypnotic genres such as techno, ambient, and kosmische. In 2013, these affections brought him to the legendary Labyrinth festival in Japan, and as was true for many like-minded artists before him, the experience was profoundly inspiring. (This is also where he met Hal Floyd of DTH and came to know the label). Tom began to channel these inspirations into his music upon returning home, and, together with the influential sounds of a particular synthesizer, the ideas began to coalesce. The results can be heard on the Ascend and Return EP. Tom has also been mixing techno and house records for more than 10 years and is known for his carefully considered selection and mixing. “

Dark Frequencer is one man underground project from Poland. His music is inspired by sci-fi and horror films from the 70’s.

The Impossebulls : Everything Has Changed; Nothing Is Different [BSOG0041]

“Back in the early noughts, Public Enemy’s Chuck D formed the world’s first virtual rap squad called The Impossebulls from a group of talented fans who frequented PE’s online forum, the Enemy Board. In 2004, the Bulls released their sophomore album, ‘Slave Education’, to retail via Chuck D’s SLAMjamz Records. In partnership with SLAMjamz, blocSonic recently re-released this under-appreciated album in our special Xtended Edition deluxe format with a second disc packed with bonus content. Since 2004, they’ve released various EPs, singles and compilations, but they have not released a full-length album of all new material since. That is, not until today!

blocSonic is very happy to be able to present to you, in conjunction with SLAMjamz, The Impossebulls’ incredible new album, Everything Has Changed; Nothing Is Different. From the beginning, they’ve been unapologetically sticking with that classic 90s hip-hop vibe… giving heads music that harkens back to an era that made the boom and the bap central. This new album is no different. However there is a difference. The difference lies in how well it captures the spirit of that era more so than any of their previous albums have. Listening to this album, it’s clear that these guys have grown up and have been making hip-hop for so long now that their skills have been honed to a polish.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they’ve had help from an incredible array of talented artists on this album! Most noteworthy (simply because of the important part they played in the history of this little thing called hip-hop) are Chuck D, DMC (Run-DMC) & Son of Bazerk and No Self Control! That isn’t it though… there’s DJ Lord and Brother Mike Williams of Public Enemy. There’s blocSonic artists CM aka Creative and cheese. Last, but surely not least, there’s also Sekreto & Cabelleros Del Plan G, Villain151, Boooka, Belle McNulty (who you may remember hearing on netBloc Vol. 44: Break From The System That Gotcha), and Tah Phrum Duh Bush who all play such important roles in making this album so memorable!”
