J Rawls, the DJ-producer behind R&B queen Middle Child, jazz-hop trailblazers Liquid Crystal Project and tons of great national and local hip-hop tracks, just dropped a new 24-track album called Hotel Beats No. 1. Presented by Polar Ent. & Mighty Healthy NYC, the mostly instrumental collection evokes imagery of urban life's brighter side. L.E. from Fly.Union guests on "American Idol." You can download it for free with Rawls' blessing.
