The thing with music that isn't mainstream is that it's hard to find new stuff. Let's make a discussion where we share NEW stuff that we think people should check out.

I'm starting with Scroobius Pip, who I've recently discovered (thanks to Sage Francis an SFR) and am enjoying.

Not too bad for chill-out music. Thanks for sharing, Raelyn.

If you like Scroobius Pip, this is pretty awesome:

 

Also, Jesse Dangerously. Canadian Indie Hip Hop artist.

Canadian hip-hop???

Good stuff, kind of reminds me of a mix of of People Under the Stairs and MC Paul Barman for some reason.

I could not find anything coherent on the death grip site, I wanted to be offended.

That Pip kid is real good, but he does sound like a British Sage Francis.

In the long run, I can't resist, P2K!

Studio 1008 (final cut)

JEAN GRAE JEAN GRAE JEAN GRAEEEEE.

No, seriously.  Jean Grae.  You can still download Cookies or Comas via http://www.djbooth.net/index/mixtapes/entry/jean-grae-cookies-comas  which is a precursor to her upcoming Cake or Death.

Yeah.  She rules like a ruling thing what rules.

Jean Grae is freaking awesome, her last two albums were amazing, collaborating with 9th Wonder and then Blue Sky Black Death.

Again, I don't know exactly where I'm drawing lines here. You mentioned Sage Francis in the first post, so I wouldn't go with him, I assume that if you know about Sage then you know Atmosphere. Sweatshop Union might be new to someone but I wouldn't, say, offer up Jedi Mind Tricks or Reflection Eternal, I assume they are well known enough in the underground community.I may well be too shallow in the underground when I go with Immortal Technique or stuff like that.

On the other hand, might I offer that virtually all French Hip Hop qualifies as "underground" to an American audience.

Any Means

French hip hop then, well here's the Jazz Liboratorz. Instrumental usually but lots of nice guest MCs on their records.
