STEREO At Its Best...When You Hear It On COLD BUSTED
August 10, 2017 7:21 PM   Subscribe

Sometimes, you just want to listen to chilled hip-hop beats, reggae and funk from around the world. If now is one of those times, try some music from the Cold Busted label on Bandcamp, Soundcloud, or YouTube. If you're wondering how the nostalgic visual aesthetic matches the music, their line is that they're trying to capture the sound of today with the looks from the past. A few samplings from the label: Latin-influenced hip hop from Greece, funky Belgian beats and something more upbeat from Azerbaijan, and some headnodders from Manchester. Or if you want a continual flow of something new, check out Cold Busted Radio, streaming instrumental hip hop, trip hop, funk and downtempo 24/7 (playlists linked, and on YouTube live).

On the name:
The Urban dictionary defines Cold Busted- “To get caught doing something you shouldn’t while you are convicted of said act to 100% certainty”. Ok so that really has nothing to do with the label but we thought it was a cool name.

That's not to say it's all laid-back tunes all the time. In fact, my current pick for best upper is Gyro Genius from Back To The Essence by DJ T-Rock & Squashy Nice.

(And a related question: what is the original theme song for Gyro Gearloose even from? My google-fu has failed me.)
