Beatminerz Unreleased

My friend BENNY from Germany has got some serious releases planned over the coming months on his ILL ADRENALINE label. Following the success of THE LEGION "Straight Flow" 45rpm ILL ADRENALINE are proud to announce pre-orders of their next dope 45 seven inch single featuring production by DA BEATMINERZ.

A-side: "...Sumthin" feat. Tash of Tha Alkaholiks & Rah Digga
B-Side: Mos Def & Talib Kweli "Another World (Beatminerz Remix)"

Both joints are unreleased, the A-side was recorded in '98 and hast that classic BEATMINERZ production. MR WALT and EVIL DEE then were hired to remix "Another World" in '98 (originally produced by UK crew THE CREATORS), but this remix didn't make it onto any release. Check out the soundclips HERE...

I love the fact that lots of independent hip hop labels are releasing 45rpm 7" singles as opposed to the usual hip hop format of the twelve inch. I'm a sucker for little records but I know a lot of hip hop collectors who don't like them. How can you not like funky little records with boom bap beats?? Yo get over the size issue and scoop these up before they are long gone. Size is NOT important unless you're trying to impress the girls yaknowhatimsayin'?
Pre-orders for this release will go live July 30th (release date: August 21st) directly on the ILL ADRENALINE website. Pressing run is 500 (400 black vinyl copies, 100 transparent blue). The colour vinyl will be sold exclusively on the website.
