You know what it is, to the regulars… drop your two most played Independent or Underground tracks from the month of June in sendspace links!

I'll compile them all at the end of the month for all to listen to!!! :tu

A reminder for those who are unfamiliar:

How it works:

Posters upload their two favourite tracks that they've been playing of late and up them to sendspace.com. The links are then posted here in this thread and at the end of the month, I'll upload them all as one succinct playlist that flows like water. If 10 posters participate, that's a 20 song playlist for us to bump the next month whilst the next playlist of the month is populated. It works well and should make for another great thread :tu The only rule is that the music MUST be from an Independent, Underground or under-the-radar artist, The Roots and similar artists CAN be contributed to the thread, but 50 Cent and other mega superstars are NOT to be included.

Enjoy old Essence Playlist of the Months, Artist of the Month's and Essence Essentials (Playlists created by members), in the Essence Essentials: Mixes Both Old and New + Artist of the Months thread.

Upload those two Independent/Underground tracks that you've been playing this month, let's make another great playlist and find some new artists :tu

    Yeah, there will definitely be a third. It may take a while longer though, I haven't been bumping much new J-Hip Hop recently and I really want to capture people the same way I did with JJ1 & 2. They're my most heavily played playlists to be honest, so when I make the next, I want it to be the 3rd most heavily played playlist. I did say that I might include Nujabes on the third mix, but I do feel that people already know his catalog and therefore I always want to put them on to new 'ish.

    To be honest, I've got into classical music a lot and I've been listening to Ludovico Einaudi. So, given that our tastes are very similar, you should check him out! Here's some of my most played recently:

    Yeah, the entire album of his is quite flawless really. Genius. I am going to go back and get his entire collection soon (when I can afford it really). Props on checking him out.

    What's the latest 'ish you've heard from Japan? Heading to Asia in the summer, can't wait!

    Props, I'll have them if you got them :tu

    I'm heading to Taiwan, may stop off in Singapore on the way through. Then hoping to hop over to Hong Kong for a weekend and finally fly back from Japan. It'll be a massive tour though and I don't know if my money will stretch, but I'm hoping to save and see.

    Taiwan's a definite though, as I have a friend out there.

    You ever been? What hip hop you checked this year?
