An hour-long hip-hop mixtape from the newest kids on the block.
If you’ve been paying attention in the last few months, you’ll have see the odd slab of vibrantly multi-coloured wax doing the rounds, promising to connect hip-hop mixtapes with their original format, vinyl.
Step forward London-based label Omertà Inc., run by friends Sam and James, who’ve taken their twin experiences in the music industry to bring overlooked classics and important new mixtapes to vinyl for the first time.
Having chalked off the likes of Future, G Perico, Cousin Stizz and more on the roster and with a special Zaytoven show coming up, the pair have dropped an hour of pure fire for VF’s Soho Radio show, which you can listen to below.
Before that though, we cycle through some of the best new music out or forthcoming on vinyl, which this month has a real jazz lean, from Kamasi Washington and Floating Points, to newcomers Yazz Ahmed and Vels Trio.
