Some of you might remember wonderkid/prodigy, A-ko from his 7" on Melting Pot or the Soulstrut compilation that came out a few years ago. I've always been a big fan and today he liberated 7 rare and unreleased songs from '04-'11. For fans of RJD2, DJ Shadow, etc. (man, I fucking hate comparisons, but it's kind of apt here), this is highly recommended.
"Alright, everybody always wants this so here. its all the official, and unreleased complete songs ive done as A-ko. its a zip file. 7 mp3s. 2004-2011. my complete 45, my complete 12" (minus the remix) the one track i did for the breakbeat raer comp, and the two unreleased tracks i did after my questionable relationship with melting pot basically ended. enjoy. PLEASE. enjoy." - A-koA-ko - Collection

Live version of Salt's "Hung Up". Dude is a beast on the drums.

Exile has a new solo rap album called 4TRK Mind. This has been in the works since before we went on tour a couple years back. Don't buy it.
People Under The Stairs just released their 8th (!) album Highlighter, becoming the first record in history to be recorded in 24-bit HD-AAC. I'll let Thes explain the audiophile nerdery below.
I had a crazy ass trip, including DJing a wrestling match in Holland with Kid Koala, rocking The Do-Over in Berlin with Benji B & Waajeed, playing "I Am Somebody" to a packed crowd in Paris the day of Mehdi's funeral (words cannot express), barely making it out of Moscow in one piece and finally ending with a week in Vegas DJing Justin Timberlake's golf tournament (which only added to the WTF of this whole month).
Here's some pics and a quick vid I put together from what footage I had. It wasn't much, but you do get some backstage interpretive dancing from a Russian girl who asked J******* *** to marry her.
That's enough with the plugs. I'll have some new music up this week. I came back with a grrrrrrip.
