We’ve been pretty bad at blogging recently. No excuses really, just forgot/couldn’t be arsed for a while, but coming up soon and over the last few weeks there have been a bunch of great releases from some goods friends of Sub-Culture so we thought we’d get back at it and round up some of our favorites:

Neo Tokyo Bass – Level Music 3, 4 & 5

Neo Tokyo Bass are just about to drop the next 3 releases in their free Level Music series, this time from Endless, Kokoro and guest producer Keyed Up. Serious quality productions on all three ‘levels’ with that nice sparkling yet grimey sound NTB are quickly perfecting. You should all be keeping an eye on these guys, you’ll be hearing a lot more from them very soon.

 Exquisite Delegates – Exquisite Delegates

Fresh Shanghai hiphop styles a long time in the making, Exquisite Delegates (Amine, Sunbiz and Dana) finally drop their self titled debut album. Tight production and flows, with a great collab with Sub-Culture’s own ChaCha! Looking forward to the live shows!

‘The Exquisite Delegates started with Amine from the Netherlands, and Sunbiz from Canada meeting in Shanghai working for the same music production house. Fellow delegate Dana Shellmire a.k.a. ‘Ocean Keep Waving’ from the US soon joined the duo as well. Finding out quickly they had a shared interest and passion for good music and a specific sound, the MC, vocalist and producer trio dove into the studio and thus the Exquisite Delegates were born.’

Red-I – Spiritual Roots

Coming out this Friday on the always impressive Dub Temple Records, Manila badman Red-I drops a beat tape made up entirely of Filipino samples. Red’s lab constantly churns out quality beats so we are very excited to hear this release. Check the track Sabi Nila below for a sample of what to expect

DJ Wash – Magnitude/World’s Demise

From Hong Kong via Dresden, Kongkrete Bass’ Wash rolls out two heavy weight cuts ‘Magnitude’ and ‘World’s Demise’ for the Section 8 label. Dark, rough and rolling, exactly what we’d expect from one of Hong Kong’s best producers!
