Rebel Soul Records has the cassingle release from Jintero MC, from 2-6pm, plus a boombox battle, and breakers. 

Fact Mag covered some of the special releases coming out: "A few immediate highlights pop out. Stones Throw will reissue Madlib‘s second album as Quasimoto, The Further Adventures Of Lord Quas while Kill Rock Stars will deliver Bratmobile’s classic Pottymouth. Still, the reissue game might have been won by Light In The Attic who have reissued the soundtrack to Shogun Assassin.

As for newer music, Autre Ne Veut will release The Age Of Transparency: The Avatar Sessions, a likely companion to his upcoming album. And 100%, the project from of Elaiza Santos, will receive her first physical release ever. If you’re unfamiliar with Santos’ music look no further than our Best Of Bandcamp column, which she topped in February with her crushing, anonymously released recording."
