@thebigbeatdown's Beat of the Week:
De La Soul - "Rock Co. Kane Flow (Feat. MF Doom)”
This song is an absolute banger. As previously noted in this Beat of The Week series, I’m a huge fan of MF DOOM. Having him as a feature on an already solid De La Soul track is just incredible. AND on top of that, DOOM actually showed up to perform it live (a VERY rare occurrence) with De La Soul on late night TV. Check it out!

@thebigbeatdown's Beat of the Week:
LAZERBEAK - “Lift Every Voice” 
Lazerbeak is a producer for the collective known as DOOMTREE (as featured on the beat of week a couple of times). This track is from his instrumental album titled “Lava Bangers.” I love this entire album, and it is really fun to listen to. The tracks are all quite short (2 min or less) and he keeps it moving in a way that will have you dancing through the entire tape! **If you struggle with flashing lights, please take caution before watching the video**

@thebigbeatdown's Beat of the Week:
Gramatik - “Moar Jive”
I first found Gramatik via Pretty Lights. It is no secret that I love instrumental music, and Gramatik has some serious musical chops. Moar Jive is an amazing example of this, and just a single song out of his impressive catalog. Get up and dance!

@thebigbeatdown's Beat of the Week:
I originally found Aby Wolf via Dessa (of whom has been a Beat of The Week in the past). She has provided backing and supporting vocals on many of her projects. The moment you hear her voice, you can see why she is sought after. Aby has an amazing voice, and solid song writing skills. In this project, I love the production, or lack of production in the tracks. The music seems to support Aby, and let her voice shine on her own in the right moments. I’m loving this new release! For a bonus jam, see her supporting Cecil Otter and Dessa live here (this video gives me chills overtime).
