1. Supa Dave West — “Let’s Rock” (AUDIO).

    These days, with a flood of bland music drowning your ears on the daily, it’s good to know there are still some artists like producer and drummer Supa Dave West who have stressed quality over quantity. Working with greats like De La and Dilla , the Queens, NY dude now living in Georgia is steadily building a sturdy resume that will soon include his debut instrumental album Beat Boxing on Redefinition Records . (He’s also got separate projects with Blu and yU in the works, stay tuned.) Listen to the first taste from Beat Boxing , “Lets Rock.”

    Beat Boxing drops August 19 . (Vinyl & Cassete drops late September )
