Streaming jazzy, downtempo hip-hop from Cult Classic Records

If you like your hip-hop moody, jazzy, or downtempo, Cult Classic Records might scratch your itch, with more than 20 releases streaming on Bandcamp, plus 17 clips on YouTube, though most are still images with music.

If you want something upbeat, there are a few tracks in among the rest. That album without album art has one such track: Heroes & Villains ft. Awon (Side A) from Love Supersedes II. But it's mostly lush, lovely downtempo hip-hop, both instrumental and with vocals.

Sometimes, this is the exact music I'm looking for.

Thanks for sharing this.

Holy Christ. I just clicked through to get the free download of one of the albums, and it took me 5 minutes to find the right download link on the Sendspace page. I appreciate them making stuff available online, but there's gotta be a better way.

I always think that there should be a word for the moment you recognize a sample in a song from its original context and vice versa. The Lamb sample in this opening track seemed so right.

Does anyone know any streaming internet radio stations that play music like this? Soma.fm is probably the closest I know of (maybe StreamingSoundtracks.com for the instrumental stuff), but I'm hoping there are more.

Please note that the Sendspace links are just a way to get the albums and EPs for absolutely free. They have priced their earlier releases at $1 USD, and the newer ones are "pay what you like," which I think could also be zero dollars. That way, you can also get the albums and EPs in FLAC, or MP3 at various bitrates, for that same cost.
