Producer Oddisee drops the final installment in his collection of EPs based around the seasons., Ok, so they're synced to the Northern hemispehere, but that doesnt make them any less dope. Download it for free here - he also plans to release em all as a box set on vinyl too.

Mr Chop released a wicked album recently, called For Pete's Sake, a bunch of tunes by Pete Rock reworked - now Cl Smooth has got in on the act, free mp3 for you via the good folk at Stonesthrow....
"Last year, Mr. Chop – a producer and multi-instrumentalist behind several Now-Again recordings and DOOM's Born Like This – released For Pete's Sake, an album made up entirely of psych, funk, jazz and rock covers of Pete Rock’s greatest beats. The backing tracks for the new versions with CL Smooth's are different than those on the Pete’s Sake album, and feature The Heliocentrics’ Malcolm Catto on drums."
