[video] Georgia Anne Muldrow "Run Away"

Bonus Beats Georgia Anne Muldrow "Run Away"

Jay Diction ft. Foci & Versis "Detonation"

Jay Diction ft. Foci & Versis "Detonation": This is a cut taken from Jay Diction's Back From My High Atus mixtape, presented by Seven Day. Shits chill, really jazzy, and features friend of the site Versis. The whole tape is something to light a spliff too, so grab that and enjoy the night/early morn.

Maxwell "Ascension (Jay Dee Remix)"

Maxwell "Ascension (Jay Dee Remix)": Been an odd day today; the afternoon stretched into the early evening kind of hectic, but we (wifey and I) ended up where we've been ending up over the last month or so: listening to Maxwell. I had never found the spanish version of "Whenever, Wherever, Whatever" for wifey, so I went Googling for it - and happened upon a dope compilation of unreleased and rare tracks of his, including this Dilla remix of "Ascension" that I'd never heard before. I can't find concrete proof, but I'm hearing that this was put out on a maxi single at some point? Oddly enough, the worlds of music that my wife and I travel in don't always cross, so to have a remix that flips vibes that we both enjoy? I had to share.

Cuddle next to your shorty and rock out to this gem.

Bonus Beats Maxwell "Whenever, Wherever, Whatever (Espanol)"

DJ Premier's Mr. Magic Tribute Mix

DJ Premier done done it again. Here's his tribute to Mr. Magic.

Shouts to the DJ Premier Blog.

EDIT Miss Info has not only posted the funeral arrangements for Mr. Magic's going home, but also posted the WBLS NY Tribute to Mr. Magic.

Dizzee Rascal "Can't Tek No More"

Dizzee Rascal "Can't Tek No More" (prod. by Shy FX): This isn't new at all, but I just got into it. Shy FX pulls out a dubby riddim for Dizzee to coast over. This cut sounds like its begging for a huge dubstep refix. Anyone on that yet?

Illiam Child "Bet The Gon Hate"

Illiam Child "Bet The Gon Hate": Ouch. Xilla hit me with this one; I had no idea he was helping push artists, nice one! This is the first I'm hearing from Illiam, and I like what I hear so far. Dude ain't playing with the pen - this is straight heatrocks over a Christina Aguillera-flexing banger. Dude doesn't sound like he likes you, so be prepared for his Million Dollar Question? mixtape...

Gripz Poetic Literature Mixtape

Since, say, mid-June, I've been getting hit up on twitter by this MD spitter by the name of Gripz. Normally, that ish bothers me, mainly because I'd rather get tracks sent to me via email, but something about homey's consistent persistence piqued my interest. In speaking to him, I found out that he works at a fast pace, completing tracks daily, or so it seems. And this isn't like a rough draft - this is 3 verses, hooks, pretty much finished product. Over the last month or two, I've posted some leaks to his material, most of it coming from this mixtape, Poetic Literature, which is hosted by DJ Whiteowl, Anno Domini Records (Anno Domini produced a lot of these tracks) and DJ Heat. Throughout this tape, dude gives you bars. Bars bars bars. Bars for days, speaking on varying topics. The homey Wordsmith co-signed him (hell, he's featured on two tracks), which is a big look for a budding DMV spitter, and at being only 20 years old, I wonder how he will grow over the next couple of years...

See this as the perfect introduction to a budding MC from the Maryland area. And if you're digging this, know that Poetic Literature 2 is on the way!

It's not a game - Gripz' even had a track featured on DeMar Derozan's official mixtape:

RIP Mr. Magic

Just saw Miss Info's post, which has a letter from DJ Premier confirming the death of the legendary Mr. Magic, who died today due to a heart attack. Newer Hip-Hop heads might not be up on Mr. Magic, but he's done a lot for getting Hip-Hop on major radio, from back in the day. He was down with Marley Marl back when BDP went at the Juice Crew, got shouted out by Biggie on "Juicy" (and by Nas on "Halftime") and was featured on Vice City's "Wildstyle" station as host. He was even a producer, crafting joints for acts like the Force MDs. Peep this interview with Magic and Mister Cee if you want to know about Hip-Hop.

He was a tastemaker, and legions of artists sent in tracks just to get Mr. Magic's approval on air - before payola, before platinum records, before boutique record labels, that radio respect was key, and Mr. Magic was the one who made or broke artists.

Hip-Hop has lost another legend. God's working on a SERIOUS club night/mixtape up there.

EDIT Spotted a treasure trove of dope Mr. Magic-related gems via Will C. (shouts to noz).

EDIT Robbie posted A Salute To Mr. Magic, which includes Mister Cee's Mr. Magic Tribute. Something told me to tune into Hot 97 at noon, but I got sidetracked.

Breakage ft. Skream "Skreakage"

(pic via

Breakage ft. Skream "Skreakage": FACT graced the Internets this special treat from Breakage's Foundation album, which is set to drop early 2010 on Digital Soundboy. With all of the work Breakage has done outside of DnB, this collaboration is a must, and it comes off very well. It's not the earth-shattering bass you'd imagine, but a darker, electro-fueled excursion. That download link is only good for 7 days, so get on it!

I got to hear "Hard", taken from the "Run 'Em Out" remix single, and its the truth. They took Breakage's "Together" tune and had the Newham Generals go in on it. If you haven't heard it, I believe Zane Lowe is rinsing it.

Radius Etc...

Oddly enough, I had been wondering what Radius was up to lately - love how he randomly hit me up like "eyo, I got the album". His new mini-album, Etc..., is rght up my alley. I'll let the man explain it to you"

Etc… is a mini album highly inspired by Hip Hop, Brokenbeat, Chicago House, Detroit Techno, Dub, Jazz, Soul etc, etc etc… progressive electronic reality music. Created mainly for the traveling individual, one that rides public transportation, or has to commute long distances for work, school etc… basically those constantly on the go, both mentally and physically

You can hear these influences from Track 1, "Kemetica", which layers some downtempo grooves inna dub-wise filter, and adds some really Jazzy elements to boot. He runs the gamut from House-y/techno vibes ("Cosmic Rush Hour", "Organics") to more hypnotic brokenbeat ("Get Me Outta This Place...") and other vibes, without going too far left from the overall mood of the project as a whole. I figured he had this in him when I peeped Neighborhood Suicide. Its good to hear a producer really experiment with their influences, and not for just one track, but for a full release.

If you're interested, you can cop one of the 50 limited-edition discs over at Gritty Goat. I believe a digital-download version is/will be available for you, too.

Mark Fader Round 5

Mark Fader is still going strong with these instrumental releases; Round 5 finds him deep in the pocket. You MCs looking for beat tapes? Look no further. His Pound 4 Pound album is currently being mastered, and is set to drop November 14th (the week of Pacman's fight)!

Mike Schpitz ft. Tona & Adullessence "Sucka MCs (Remix)": The "Sucka MCs" video should be out in two weeks (October 13th), but for right now, LoveJones linked with the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for this "Sucka MCs" remix! Lovin' how this one came off to be honest - sounds like a live band beneath them, right? This and the "Get Up (Remix)" will be featured on the iTunes version of the album, so get ready for that.

Jovi Rockwell "Killin' Dem"

Jovi Rockwell "Killin' Dem": I was diggin' Jovi's sound - she had that real Reggae sound in her tunes; her feature on the Major Lazer album was straight roots dub. This one? Sounds like a Gwen Stefani, straight up. This is taken from her Psycho Therapy mixtape, which drops on October 19th. I'm hoping the rest of the tape isn't sounding like this...

Britney Spears "3"

Britney Spears "3" (prod. by Max Martin): Brit goes in on some club-happy shit this go round. I actually mess with Britney when she's not doing the usual - I'm not saying I'm blasting this in my headphones, but I appreciate the steps outside of her box (or whatever box people thing she belongs in) and does something different.

This is taken from her forthcoming singles collection.

Nato Caliph ft. Vast Aire "LogarithMIC" (prod. by DJ Crucial): Last night I hit you with the final version of "Beer Summers"; this time, we have another leak from Nato's Knowledge + Cipher album. The previous leak featured Naledge, and this time 1/2 of Cannibal Ox, Vast Aire, drops his sinister bars on this lush beat from Crucial. Both MCs expound on being "slaves to the rhythm", and this cut demands repeat listens.

Expect the album version to sound better - Nato tells me this version is rough. Enjoy!
