Diego Bernal's 2009 set For Corners was one of my favourite albums of 2009. What's more it was totally free to download. His new set Besides... has hit the web and once again his samples draw on dusty untapped south Texas crates, however unlike For Corners this album is maybe a little more instrumental hip hop in the vain of Shadow than it is Dilla. That's not a bad thing though and once again its on heavy rotation in my home. Another great bit of work from the "Civil rights attorney by day and beat producer by night".
Onra's latest album dropped a little while ago, but I forgot to mention it so here's a link to amazon for those who want to check out the previews and maybe purchase it. (It's an affiliate link obviously and we will earn a few cents / pence if you do)
