This album is far reaching, ranging from Enchanting Melodic Beats to Future Hip-Hop and will take you on an audio journey through sound-scapes that are both catchy and profoundly interesting to listen to. All the music has that special Abel Okugawa Dub Style and sound that has been compared to the likes of Bjork, Tricky and Lee “Scratch” Perry. This is the most definitive album from Okugawa to date .
Indie Love Enterprises, in collaboration with Cricket Cemetery, are pleased to announce the release of Uptown XO’s Takeover 2 on two 12” colored vinyl LPs — limited to 100 copies!
In 2008, a unique hiphop movement gained attention in the nation’s capital which was influenced by go-go, the native music genre that originated in the mid-60s. Uptown XO (or “XO”) was one of the first to bring exposure to this new sound when he released his sophomore project, Takeover 2.
Using a mixture of go-go, soul and jazz infused hiphop instrumentals, XO expresses a strong sense of pride for his community and dedication to preserving the authenticity of D.C. culture. Washingtonians consider this project to be the archetype of modern day hiphop in D.C.
As years went by, many came and went in the local hiphop scene, but XO stayed planted in Washington to help the city flourish as a potential platform for popular hiphop music. Today, XO is a member of the internationally acclaimed hiphop trio, Diamond District, and a star among the Mello Music Group roster. He is currently working on his next solo project, which is due at the end of 2014, as well as Diamond District’s sophomore album entitled March on Washington.
Uptown XO’s “Takeover 2” 2xLP Colored Vinyl Deluxe will be shipping out in May.

After a bit of a hiatus due to travels spreading the sound of tomorrow globally, we are back with the 10th installation of our White Label Series with a feel good project from our boy J-Louis.
This installment of our White Label Series comes from 21 year old LA-based producer and drummer, J Louis. You may remember Mr. Louis as the resourceful young man who experimented with beatmaking on his iPhone in the past. This time, he’s been working with Ableton and other music creation programs to develop his signature sound further.
Listen to J-Louis’ ‘Balanced’ EP from Feb 2013: http://soulection.bandcamp.com/album/balanced-ep
This White Label series sees J-Louis moving a into some more uptempo and housey vibes while still keeping his signature bass heavy sound intact.
SWL010 has J-Louis remixing rising vocalist https://soundcloud.com/rachelfoxx in the “Before You” jam, sampling Raphael Saadiq & Teedra Moses Ft. Corey Tinay’s “I Want You Back” in “Can’t You See” and collaborating with dope producer, https://soundcloud.com/orijanus on “Hot N Ready”.
Enjoy this one!
