Ras GDown To Earth Vol. 2 (The Standard Bap Edition)
PURCHASE: Vinyl, Cassette, Digital
total runtime: 46min
cover art: Ras Terms


Ras G – Brainfeeder, Leaving Records and Low End Theory staple artist – at his most mellow and “down to earth” on the album, crafted as a tribute to the boom-bap style hip-hop of his upbringing.

As with all his work, Down to Earth was produced at the “Spacebase” – not just the name of his studio, but a virtual a state of mind. Visualize golden-era hip-hop Polo jackets & Dashiki shirts. Restrict your culinary diet to home-cooked Vegetarian Ethiopian cuisine. Celebrate listening to pioneers from Pete Rock, Diamond D, Madlib to J Dilla. Study the tools of the trade devoutly, not forcefully. Allow the MPC200XL, SP-404, and Technics 1200s to become humble extensions of the human form.

“This is dedicated to those all over the planet who recognize and respect the sound.”
– Ras G

Brogan Bentley - The Snake
PURCHASE: Vinyl, CD, Digital
total runtime: 46 mins
cover art: Gregory Kalliche

Brogan Bentley first appeared on Leaving Records in 2012 with a tantalizingly brief self-titled cassette EP. After a highly productive incubation period, the young producer returns with his debut LP, The Snake. Its 12 compositions writhe, slink, and crawl through the dark and hazy fog-scape of Bentley’s home of San Francisco in the Year of the Snake. According to the producer, “The Snake is a sonic documentation of coming into new skin, living in it and shedding it.”

Fittingly, The Snake is an album of transformation, winding its way around the brooding Burial-esque Whispers, the ecstatic Juke, sparse Acid, and anthemic Diva House. Despite many such radical shifts in color, the album plays out in an utterly natural and captivating sequence. Mournful and uplifting in the same degree, this collection of contemplative yet propulsive dance tracks captures the scope of living, loving, and grasping for understanding all at the same time.
