Ethel Cee - Seven Thirty

No Comments »

This dropped at 7:30PM EST, but fuck Haj. He's lucky I fucks with Ethel Cee. She's the shit on the mic. Maybe she's the shit in real life, too - I don't know. She goes in, doe. And for $5? You're playing yourself if you aren't grabbing this one. "One Fifty" got play on WPRB 103.3 FM as well as on The Sixth Sense, so you should already know. Don't be an idiot, grab this!


K-AZE: Sampler 1

No Comments »

I'm not sure if you guys fuck with DnB like I do, or remember guys like Lemon D, who are truly one of the architects of the modern sound (alongside his Valve Music bredren Dillinja). He took a few years off to go into an entirely different direction, which resulted in him shedding his "Lemon D" moniker for a new name, K-AZE (which derives from the initials of his government name). He uploaded a 30 minute sampler of tracks that he has on the horizon, and he dips into everything from dubstep and R&B to that Flying Lotus/DIBIA$E lane (truth be told, the entire Valve sound is moving into multiple directions, with House, dubstep and more genres getting released). And the shit's definitely dope - I'm vibing to this right now! Check out more details via DOA, and keep it locked for more from K-AZE.

Danny! "Long Time Comin'"

No Comments »

The release of Payback is a long time coming. Hell, me hearing the album in it's entirety has been a long time coming (and I'm STILL waiting). Getting co-signs from guys like Jay-Z and ?uestlove seem to have been a long time coming for Danny! as well. Riding over some live-sounding drums and dope organs (which always feel like fire to me), Danny Swain speak on all of this. This cut is said to be from the Japanese import version of Payback. I just wanna hear the American version.

Ethel Cee x Dumhi - Coke & Yoga

No Comments »

From Ethel Cee: "Coke & Yoga is a song that I have wanted to write for some years now. The hook has been floating around in my head for at least two years, and I always hoped that one day this story would find a good home. I have a few friends who live out in Los Angeles and one in particular who is from there. I remember hearing descriptions of some of L.A.’s residents. You could meet someone with fake tits, fake lips and a fake ass but they are vegan or on some kind of macrobiotic diet. I found this to be equal parts hilarious and intriguing. So when I say ‘Hey L.A.’ in the hook, I am basically saying hello to the only group of people I thought could understand how two things so diametrically opposed could exist in the same life. I felt like L.A was where I probably belonged. They would get it. They wouldn’t judge. It described me perfectly. I mean, what kind of person does coke and then gets up and goes to yoga class the next day? Who DOES that shit? Hot mess.Both cocaine and yoga came into my life about the same time. I still do yoga. The coke had to go. I liked it way too much and I didn’t want to go down the road of addiction. I’ve seen firsthand what that looks like and It. Is. Ugly. So I stopped cold turkey while I was still in control. Yay, me. I can say it is probably the most personal song I have ever written and released aside from ‘Good To You’ and ‘Bury the Hatchet’. Everything is an accurate account of what was happening at the time".

My kind of tune right here, nahmean? Trenton is heavy with West Indians, and the Reggae/Dancehall sounds blast just as heavy as Hip-Hop does. This is serious bass-driven banger from School of Sharks, which Spekt says is dropping this Summer. Smoke something to this.

Been on kind of a comic book kick since, well, I got my Kindle Fire last year, but as of late (because of Avengers vs. X-Men), I've been nerding out, but if you're not rocking to the new Ultimate Spider-Man, with the half-Black/half-Spanish Spider-Man?!?! You're messing up. Mega Ran links with Tribe One & Jermiside for this special jawn. Jerm and Ran got an EP on the way, and Ran hit $6K on his Kickstarter, so they dropped this cut that's influenced by my new favorite lil' kid ass hero.

Aleon Craft - Mothership Decatur (The Thugstep Edition)

No Comments »

Been waiting for this one to drop. I had been trying for a bit to get someone to work those Aleon Craft tracks inna THUGSTEP vein, and was glad that SMKA and Nappy linked up. Nappy brought in Santi Junior, who takes the bulk of these remixes and really shows what he's worth (well, teases - dude's got some bangers on the way). This one flips tracks from Mothership Decatur and slyly plays the futuristic spaceship funk into a different zone entirely. You already know. Some great shit for a lovely Friday the 13th, trust.

Apex ft. Ayah "Space Between (Sinistarr Remix)"

No Comments »

Last weekend, I started having some deep/dope conversations with a producer out of the Detroit area by the name of Sinistarr. I've known about him for the last four/five years, as any Black DnB producers out of the US rarely miss my inbox. We've had a cool rapport, and I've seen him grow from getting tunes signed to Fabio's Creative Source imprint to having bits drop on Metalheadz and Hospital Records. He's been in a different space, and is moving into different BPMs, and this is one of his first in the 165BPM range. You might have heard of the juke/footwork styles coming from Chicago and Detroit, and this remix of an Apex track (with beautiful vocals from Ayah) that Hospital released is a great example of that footwork sound. Pounding kicks and thumping bass are two of the staples of this sound, and it's been taking over as of late. Hell, Disc Jockey Nappy and Juke Ellington even have a footwork tape dropping soon... as will Nappy and Sinistarr. In any case, grab this free remix, and if you're messing with the sound, there's PLENTY more where this came from!

This episode is epic. Not only does Just Blaze officially join the Combat Jack Show ft. Dallas Penn crew, but the one and only DJ Premier stops in for a great interview. They go in on everything, from Preemo's thoughts on Guru, Christina Aguilera, porn and "pause", but thoughts on his forthcoming projects (he does say the rumored project with Nas is going to happen). Even Bun B and Freddie Foxxx call into the show on the random. Ain't no other show fucking with what they're building. Don't believe me? Peep the iTunes podcast, which has been updated with all of the past shows (save a couple few few). #GetReadyForCombat

Three Six Mafia "Who Gives A Fuck Where You From (Disc Jockey Nappy Remix)"

No Comments »

Nappy ain't playing fair. I mean, I converse with dude more than anyone, save for my wife, so I have a good idea of the crack he's been cooking. And for some reason, the remix work he's doing with Three Six Mafia tracks has always killed shit. This is the first one of his official productions (which I have a feeling just recently got sorted out) over a Triple Six track, and it's fucking nasty. Has that great bounce that also rides the bass music low-end. DJ Paul wished he had tracks this heavy, trust.

Nope, I've never been a fan of Mac Miller. I do remember hearing a Chase & Status mix from BBC Radio 1Xtra where they spoke on Mac and how much they dug his music. I'm guessing that admiration lead to this version of "Flashing Lights", which features some lyrics from Mac in a few spots. Yeah, keep telling me that dubstep and Hip-Hop together doesn't make sense. Shouts to Disc Jockey Nappy, Thugstep Commission 3 is on the way!

Look at what the Easter Bunny dropped off. Been waiting for this one, too. Gimpmode, as you'll hear, was a sick THUGSTE P refixer who passed away last year. Gone too soon. I know he and Nappy had struck up a friendship, and Gimpmode's work had impacted Nappy greatly, so he felt the need to sort out this tribute mix for the man. Aside from Gimpmode refixes, you also get refixes from DJ Hipnotikk, Daddy's Money, Trap Or Dub, Santi Junior and Nappy himself. Enjoy.
