Overdiluted SOUNDS February '15

I heard the bold claim that 2015 is already better for hip hop/ new music than the whole 2014. I don't know if I can bow down to sensationalism, but the bar has certainly been set very high pretty early on. I've struggled to cut it down into just a few tracks, but the above playlist is what's been in my ears for much of February. Special mention to Danny Cainco, Two-9 and their new tape, Amon Abdallah and E. Doza, all of which you should check out further.

Things are beginning to ramp up here at Overdiluted, and it's safe to say I'm really enjoying it. After taking time to hone and relaunch the site, I'm extremely happy with response I'm receiving. I've set myself some pretty tough goals for this year so let's hope I can smash them into pieces while providing you with some cool and interesting stuff to read.

If you'd like to hear a little bit more from Overdiluted, follow me on Twitter or join the Overdiluted mailing list - I don't have the time to blow up your inbox, so you'll only be hearing from me once a month.
