#ToddyAwards2017: Albums

This was an awesome year in music for me. Boom Bap Hip-Hop seemed to see the start of a resurgence, I got to experience new artists like Sabrina Claudio, Niia and Snoh Aalegra, and I got to branch out and try out some new artists in different genres like AURORA, Dope Lemon and Glass Animals. But even though I branched out a bit, Hip-Hop and Indie Soul still populated my favorite albums. Most of the folks on this list are repeaters, but newcomer Sabrina Claudio took that top spot.

Has The Boat Sailed on the Slender Man?

I remember a few years ago when The Slender Man was the creepy monster of the moment. Now after a few documentaries and some youtube hoaxes, do we still care about the Slender Man? Check out the latest trailer.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

The Mini Documentary: How J Dilla Humanized His MPC3000

The Mini Documentary: How J Dilla Humanized His MPC3000

There’s a halo of reverence around J Dilla, a producer and beatmaker from Detroit who made some of the most fascinating and influential beats in Hip-Hop history. Before his early death in 2006, J Dilla worked with countless artists and producers – from Erykah Badu and Janet Jackson to Busta Rhymes and Madlib – and developed an off-kilter style of rhythm and sampling that transcended the machine he used to create music, the Akai Midi Production Center, otherwise known as the MPC.
