Mark Aubert's most recent album Somewhere is pure hip hop bliss. I really mean "pure", because when I first heard it, I kept expecting something (weird vocals, annoying samples, etc) to come in and ruin it, but it never happened. Reminiscent of J Dilla, these bite-size experimental beats are smooth and addictive; the only thing to do when you finish one of his albums is to start it again. If you're in the Bay Area, you can catch him at this festival on September 27th.

You can download any of his seven albums for free at his bandcamp. There are even downloadable cassette versions!
