Whilst we’re not having much of a Summer here, it hasn’t stopped Jazzy Jeff and Mick Boogie teaming up for the third year in a row bringing us their Summertime mixtape.

Life Crushed Presents: The Panic Suite
The Panic Suite was a fun and challenging experiment for both us here at Life Crushed, and hopefully the artists who have contributed. This one is shorter than our previous comps, but for some reason a 6-song compilation seems fitting to the occasion. We are incredibly thankful for those of you who took the time to make something and submit it. This concept of establishing a list of challenges for artists to tackle is something we at LC feel could be successful within this growing community of artists and musicians. Each song that has been submitted has it’s own eerie vibe that makes the spine tingle with anticipation, and we couldn’t have asked for a creepier collection of tracks.
DL / Track List after the jump…
Blogging brother Life Crushed has just released his next compilation in the series. Perfect soundtrack to your Halloween. Click the link above for the download.

Featuring on one of this years heaviest compilations, ‘Finest Ego’, the DHF boys have also recently worked with Om’Mas Keith and B.Bravo, plus a forthcoming collab with Arp101.

Funkrischi - Soulooption LP (2010)
Funkrischi is a 22 year old beatmaker from Saarbrücken…
“I listened to a lot of mixtapes and rap tracks during the 90’s- that’s the reason i started djing and making beats. I always wanted to scratch like all the dj’s did on those mixtapes. I loved the sound. So after getting my turntables and a mixer, I used to hang around at flea markets a lot- that’s why i bought an mpc 2000 xl. Shortly after that, I added an s950, an s1100 and an effect board. I love the sound of the 90’s…the crackling of the vinyl. That’s why I still buy vinyl and why I haven’t changed to be a digital dj.
I have to mention- the Soulooption LP has a bad quality, because back then, when I recorded it at home in my room, I had no real possibilities to master it. I wanted it to be born in my room, without any help from outside. I keep it real ;)”
Crates of AG have tried to improve the sound quality a bit and added 6 bonus tracks to the LP from Funkrischi soundcloud page.
Second-Sight Vol.1 Compilation
A small taster of what I have been listening to over the past few months. Please take the time to visit the artists pages and support their music. They’ve been kind enough to give these tracks away for free, so please don’t profit off them. If you’re a lover of instrumental hip hop, chilled electronica and garage bass lines then you should dig this. I hope you guys enjoy.
