Chris Turner – LOVElife is A Challenge


I like Chris Turner a lot but never posted something….. shame on me! this is a mixtape released few weeks ago entitled “LOVElife is A Challenge ”  it’s available for free and it’s lovely! stream below and download at the bottom, enjoy!

World Soul Music is what Chris Turner uses as his remedy throughout this journey of life and love. So he presents to you his new project “LOVElife” to add to your collection of remedies that helps you continue to live life in all of its beauty. As a young man, Turner has experienced many worlds through this thing called life performing with musicians/friends such as Jesse Boykins III, ERIMAJ, Bilal, and Esperanza Spalding, as well as being father of two. “I’m blessed to know the feeling of fatherhood and to have a family of my own” says Turner, “It has taken all this time for me to gain the confidence to express what I have been living through this whole time.” This project is every aspect and extent of his love; the evolution of emotions expressed from a good man with music as his vessel. The importance of Loving Yourself first and foremost before you can give True Love to a significant other, as well as the world, is key, and is a lesson that Turner has embodied in life directly and musically.

“I am merely a middle man trying to bring you and true love together. LOVElife is my melodic contribution that highlights the significance of loving yourself, sharing growth, and learning to forgive. Releasing this body of work on this day is my gift to you, for I was born on this day, and life is a precious gift to me.” says Turner. LOVElife is a necessary part of an important search to find romance, of which there is no end. Happy Holidays to life and love, and all individuals finding their way, from Myself and The Romantic Movement. LOVEchild LP Coming Soon (@ChrisTurnerLC)

CohenBeats – Milk and Honey Vol.1


Got this on the mail, Cohenbeats 26 years old beatmaker from Israel, This is “Milk & Honey Vol. 1” hist last project with 27 beats made using Israeli samples only, available now as free download on bandcamp, enjoy! props to

Cohenbeats has been a long time friend and one of the best beat makers we know. It was only a matter of time until he would’ve released an album on Raw Tapes…
Even though Cohenbeats (also one half of the rap group Cohen@Mushon) has always had a soft spot for Israeli samples, this time he focused on 25 of his favorite beats sampled only from Israeli records from the 60’s up to the 80’s, 2 beats from Israeli related samples and many skits of Israeli people speaking half ass English. We even went far enough to feature Hebrew writings on the cover, if you ever wondered what it looked like…
We figured since all we hear in the news is political related, we needed someone to show us another side of the middle east.

So there you go, 27 nose punching, throat grabbing, heart moving beats.
