So, it’s no secret that Ry is a small bit of a fave for me. I’ve posted about him and his stellar releases quite a few times before.
He just released his first proper original full length (with beats from both C1 and Soul Marauder). Wall Street is the next step up for Ry – there’s moments where he blows you outta the park with his flow – the quick lines in ‘NY Times’ and ‘Watch Me Rise’ stopped me in my tracks. Each track holds it’s own place, with earlier track ‘Won’t Be Long’ sitting really well alongside the aforementioned ‘NY Times’ and lead track ‘Holograms’. Then there’s some awesome features from Allday, as well as a rather ace one from Shadow Kitsuné.
It’d be a party disc if I ever heard one!
I got my faves below. You can download the full thing for free over on Ry‘s site – itsthatkidry.com
ok, so here we go. It’s only about a week or so late, but I’ve been pretty busy lately (mismatch.tv being a big focus). This month has seen so many awesome releases, and like always, a pretty big mix of stuff. The St Vitus Cardinals boys are doing some really sweet things at the mo (I actually had a chat to Ry about it and his solo stuff earlier on in the week). Tyler Touché is also a standout for me – he’s a friggin’ high school kid and he has production skills like that??!! It also makes me pretty hungry, french style.
Then then there’s the awesome sounds of bands like Lurch & Chief, The Smith Street Band and King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard (their album is stellar!). As per usual, some tracks are available for individual download, others, you just gonna have to hear in the full tape.
Worst Friends – Neve’s For None (Faux Pas Remix)
ST VITUS CARDINALS – Allday – If You Don’t Mind (Prod. By C1)

38 bars of killer rhyme over a beat by one of the best producers out at the moment. It be a win win.
Man, two mixes in as many days. This here be the MAY mixtape, full of the tracks that have helped me survive what has been a really full on month.
In true maamf form, it’s a whole heap of genres in there from the killer techno of Sydney gents CSMNT61 to the Australiana sing-a-long feel of The Starry Field. These mixes are actually a heap of fun to make – might see if I can up the amount.

Goldroom – Fifteen (ft Chela)
Catcall – Shoulda Beeen
The Temper Trap – Need Your Love (RAC Mix)
DiIV – Doused
Joe McKee – A Double Life

Bored Nothing – Only Old
The Starry Field – If All Your Troubles Were A Sea
Ok, so if you’re all over both Triple J and Triple J Unearthed, then most likely you would have heard a track off Allday and C1‘s EP ‘Skateboard Soiree’. Another local hiphop kid, Ry put me onto this…and it is what everybody suggests, something out of left field that melds a bit of humour with some really killer beats and rhymes.
This deserves to be pretty big. We got three tracks from the EP just below…and if you dig, you can download the whole thing for free from here.
Allday x C1 – The City
Allday x C1 – So Good
Allday x C1 – My World (feat. Luke Gray)
