Various Artists – Beats, Mines And Life: An Instrumental Journey [Album Stream]

Posted on October 14, 2017

To celebrate the many phenomenal instrumentals that have landed on our projects over the years, Coalmine Records is pleased to release of our first instrumental compilation, "Beats, Mines and Life: An Instrumental Journey".

The 14 tracks on here capture the brilliance of several of the producers we’ve worked with in recent years. These include numerous living legends who have carved out a massive niche in the game, including the likes of Nottz, Ayatollah, M-Phazes, and Khrysis. Also featured are the underground stalwarts like DJ Concept, Max I Million, J57, Small Professor, and Thelonious Martin, all of whom are cementing their place in the Hip-Hop world.

The 50 minute "Journey" highlights both serious bangers and low-key headnodders alike. For the trunk-rattlers, we have joints like M-Phazes' shimmering beat for Blu's 2012 single, "Kiss The Sky", in addition to his creeping "Midnight Madness" instrumental from Heltah Skeltah’s 2011 EP of the same name. Elsewhere, you’re bound to break your neck to Nottz' "Atlantis" (off his "Titans in the Flesh" EP with Blu), chill along to J57’s dusty "The Art of Sole" (off Aaron Rose's 2016 EP, "Elixir"), and feel the soul of Thelonious Martin’s "They Don’t Know" (off his 2017 released "Molotov" LP with Saga).

Like many of our releases, "Beats, Mines and Life" pays homage to the Hip-Hop greats who have come before us. Of course, the title is a callback to A Tribe Called Quest’s classic 1996 LP, "Beats, Rhymes & Life", and a tribute to the life and art of the late Phife Dawg.

Saga & Thelonious Martin – Where We Live (Brooklyn) [Video]

Posted on June 14, 2017

With their well received collaborative LP ‘Molotov‘ now available, the East Coast/Midwest tag-team of Saga and Thelonious Martin head to the rapper’s stomping grounds of Brooklyn for album’s debut video, “Where We Live (Brooklyn).”

Directed by Surf School’s Infamous Oz, the visuals put the heart of the BK on full display as the rapper-producer video hit up some of their favorite spots. That includes getting a lil’ grimy with the local cats at the legendary Gleason’s Gym and, of course, diggin’ in the crates at Black Gold Records.

Watching these two hit up Brooklyn landmarks together and just kick it, further proves their chemistry, which is on full display throughout the LP. Of course, anyone can hear that chemistry on “Where We Live (Brooklyn),” which boasts Saga doing what he does best (rap with a purpose) over Martin’s ill flip of Ethel Beatty’s classic, “It’s Your Love.”

‘Molotov' which boasts features from Freddie Gibbs, Fashawn, and Rapper Big Pooh among others, is now available for stream and download through all major digital retailers via Saga 718/EMPIRE. The record is also available on wax, in a limited edition smoke vinyl configuration, through Coalmine Records.

Rhythm Roulette w/ Thelonious Martin [Video]

Posted on February 24, 2017

Mass Appeal links up with Thelonious Martin on this episode of Rhythm Roulette.

In this week’s edition of Rhythm Roulette we met up with Thelonious Martin at A1 Records on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Hot off the heels of last week’s release of Molotov, his joint album with Brooklyn’s very own Saga, Martin took us to Virtue and Vice Studios in Williamsburg to show us how one of Chicago’s finest producers chops up a sound he doesn’t usually work with.

“I’ve been on record saying, I’m not a fan of disco….unfortunately”, Martin told the crew at Mass Appeal.
