J. Period just dropped a new mixtape “G.O.O.D. Music: Remixed & Unreleased” and HillyDilly made one of the previously unreleased tracks available for stream via soundcloud…peep it below!
“California vet Trek Life is ready and set for his upcoming album with producer Duke Westlake to hit the scene, but before we get into the new album, MMG thought we ought to share “Wouldn’t Change Nothing” with the people. WCN is the complete 14 track album remixes of the Oddisee produced “Everything Changed Nothing” featuring new versions produced by Apollo Brown, Audible Doctor, Has-Lo, Slimkat78, Oddisee, and Duke Westlake himself. Get the free download of the entire “Wouldn’t Change Nothing” project and then get ready for more news on the new upcoming Trek Life album due out in April!” -Mello Music Group
“For the album cut “Resilient” Substantial brings on Seattle producer and Bop Alloy partner Marcus D to provide a smoothed out, jazz infused remix. The track, originally produced by Eric Lau, is a testament to the strength it takes to claim your identity and walk your own path. The Marcus D jazz remix is a perfect fit for the reflective & uplifting declarations of Substantial.”

“The Black Opera have quickly proven to be beacons of light in the game, emerging at a time when the landscape is fragmented. Their EnterMission. project presented them as faceless champions for change and forward-motion. Now partnering with Mello Music Group, they are releasing the physical manifestation of EnterMission. on Disc today.
They’ve enlists now label-mate Apollo Brown to put his midas touch on “All Over Disguise”, a cut from EnterMission. originally produced by Astronote. Apollo chops a string sample beautifully to craft a reflective slow burner takes the vibe of the original audio demonstration to a more contemplative place. TBO’s introspection is augmented with powerful lines like, “analogue to digital, man is lost and miserable / seeking more (moor) in general, Othello” – a clever Shakespearian nod to the Moorish General Othello on-top of a track that knocks.
The anonymous creative collective is currently perfecting their next musical installment, Libretto: of King Legend, due out this fall, but the CD version of EnterMission. drops today with the vinyl on the way!”
“Has-Lo has been unceremoniously spitting that raw rap for some time now. Through c o llaborations and projects of his own, like his Mello Music Group debut In Case I Don’t Make It, Has shows that there is more to his hip-hop scene than meets the eye. Has is releasing a series of visuals to accompany tracks from his debut project and remix project, the first of which is “Inherit The Stars”, a Paten Locke remix of the track “Fiber Optics” that debuted earlier today on Mass Appeal.
Fellow MC/Producer Paten Locke takes what was a subdued, drum-driven burner and turns it into something a bit more eccentric. A quirky jazz loop serves as the foundation for the re-contextualization where Has-Lo’s introspective street rhymes are contrasted rather than complimented. The video is a mind-melting animated affair. Taking cues from Has’ lyrics and delivery, director Nathan Hunter gives us animation that plays like a “mental MRI” in rapid fire succession of converging black-and-white scenes and situations.
The track is available on Conversations B, Has-Lo’s remix project of his still bubbling debut “In Case I Don’t Make It”. Finally, after much critical acclaim, this fall Mello Music Group will be giving In Case I Don’t Make It a proper vinyl release. Stay tuned!”
