The past nine months have been tough, what with Oneman only appearing on Rinse.FM for two hours every Tuesday! It’s been nine months since the release of Solitaire Vol. 1, the London-based DJ’s self-released, rapid-fire mix au jus and it’s about time we receive another 80+ song peppering of the finest in grime, dubstep, drill and R&B. Like most Oneman efforts, Vol. 2’s highlights come in the form of idiosyncratic mixes between of-the-moment hip hop and ‘nuum-style UK tunes. Rising Glacial Sound artist Rabit has quite a presence in the mix, as does the drawling Memphis style presented by the likes of Lil Ugly Mane and Denzel Curry. Check out the cover art and tracklist after the jump…

We only jumpstarted our Sounds From The Astral Plane series a few weeks ago, but this edition will (unfortunately) most likely be the last of 2012. We do have a few nice features coming your way in the next couple of days so keep your eyes peeled. This week, we have two (!)

Over the past week or so, everyone and their mother have begun posting year end lists in one form or another. While perusing these song/album/mixtape/EP/single/live show/remixes/album art/video/DMX moment lists, you’ll probably come to the realization that you disagree with 90% of them and feel the urge to leave a vindictive comment on one article or another noting the surfeit of fecal matter spewing out of writer A or blogger B’s mouth cavity. First of all, resist the urge. Year end lists are silly and pointless, but they are someone else’s opinion. Anyways, we will not be writing any year end lists,  because of the aforementioned clusterfuck that has already ensued. We will post a (brief) roundup of general shit we’ve enjoyed this year and maybe link to some other lists that are prescient or that mirror what we enjoy to a certain extent, but probably not. We have a bunch of amazing sounds for you this week, including Benjha’s brilliant “Flight Simulator, so maybe you should just hit the jump and enjoy some positive music. Maybe fanute around your room to it. You know we will. Just don’t think about lists.
