Rap. Some might be short enough to be EPs but that seems to be the general trend lately. To go for a shorter better album.

After Deca’s 3rd album his length has shortened to around 30 minutes a project.

Deca - The Ocean (2013) 29 min
Deca - The Way Through (2017) 32 min
Deca x Neon Brown - The Donner Party (2018) 20 min
Deca - Snakes & Birds (2020) 29 min

Ransom had several great short projects recently and even one further back with Statik Selektah. Highly recommend his more recent series with Nicholas Craven, and if like those then most of ones he’s produced for other people are nice too like with J. Arrr or Nappy Patson.

Ransom & Statik Selektah - The Proposal (2013) 31 min
Ransom & Nicholas Craven - Director’s Cut 1 (2020) 20 min
Ransom & Nicholas Craven - Director’s Cut 2 (2020) 17 min
Ransom & Nicholas Craven - Director’s Cut 3 (2020) 30 min
Ransom & Nicholas Craven - Deleted Scenes (2020) 14 min
Ransom & Nicholas Craven - Crime Scenes (2020) 21 min
Ransom - Se7en (2021) 23 min
Ransom - Heavy Is The Head (2021) 27 min

Sadistik has had a couple good ones.

Sadistik - The Art Of Dying (2010) 34 min
Sadistik & Kno - Phantom Limbs (2015) 22 min
Sadistik - Haunted Gardens (2018) 34 min
Sadistik - Delerium (2020) 16 min
Sadistik - Elysium (2020) 19 min
Sadistik - L’appel Du Vide (2021) 23 min

KA’s album’s are in the 30 to 40 minute range too

KA - The Night’s Gambit (2013) 39 min
KA - Honor Killed The Samurai (2016) 36 min
Hermit & The Recluse - Orpheus vs The Sirens (2018) 33 min
KA - Descendants Of Cain (2020) 33 min

Couple others

CunninLynguists x The Grouch & Eligh - Winterfire (2014) 21 min
(Kno of CunninLynguists side projects) more electronic with female vocalists (Anna wise, Zoe Wick, Dane Ferguson for first album, with Fjer replacing Anna for second album)

Built to Fade - To Dust (2013) 33 min
Built to Fade - Lies in Nostalgia (2020) 31 min
