St. Joe Louis ft. Ezrakh & Jahnia "Purple Boxes"

No Comments »

The "self described connoisseurs of filtered cigars" go ham over some subdued 808 bounce right here. I don't smoke cigars, or much of anything else at this point. If I did, I'd pour a few up and blow some smoke to this one. Cloud Club goes in, all day. You already knew that, doe. Right?

Flying Lotus ft. Earl Sweatshirt & Captain Murphy "Between Friends"

No Comments »

Interesting cut here. Exactly what I'd been wanting to hear Earl on when he came home and all the hullabaloo was him working with " " producer. Not sure who Captain Murphy is, although FACT thinks it sounds a bit Aesop Rock-y, but I agree with GVS: I'm hearing more Tyler, The Creator. Loving the laid back keys on this - I was randomly Wikipedia searching through my favorite Miles Davis albums, and this feels like some random key splash that would turn into a great loop. Taken from the Adult Swim Singles Program. Need this.

[preview] Trap Check, Vol. 1

Read more » | No Comments »

Via this very blog and my twitter, I've spent time discussing and voicing my viewpoints on the current rise of Trap. You already know what "Trap" sounds like if you fuck with music from cats like Waka Flocka, Lex Luger, T.I., Rick Ross and a plethora of artists from that section of the US. Big 808-heavy beats from the Southeastern side of thangs. The boy Ricky Raw even opened a dialogue on the subject, as over the last few months, loads of EDM DJs and producers, from Diplo and Craze to Munchi and Dillon Francis have started flocking to this sound, and heads like UZ getting 'nuff praise for taking the sound into a different atmosphere, so to speak. The hoemy Zone3 has been a support of this site, and his blog THEFREAKBEAT, alongside FREAKSTEP Records, have really started putting that love into motion with loads of high quality Bass Music projects, and this one, Trap Check Vol. 1, is focusing solely on the Trap side of things.

Mixed by Hipnotikk, this will be a dope look into the Bass Music scene's take on the Trap sound. Confirmed artists include Taste Tester, Hipnotikk, Disc Jockey Nappy, Kid Cedek, ADHD, Sin Diesel, Bossk, R3, Pancho Grady and plenty more, with some others set to contribute as well. After the jump, you can check out Nappy and Taste Tester's contributions, as well as a special radio drop done specifically for this mix. Be on the lookout, as this one should be hitting you VERY soon!

Linkin Park "Lost In The Echo (KillSonik Remix)"

So... this happened. I've not listened to Linkin Park's Living Things album (or any of their albums, for that matter), but apparently there's a remix edition of the album on the way? Not sure. No official release info on this one, although it sounds like if you cop(ped?) the album, you could get sorted with a subscription to receive remixes from that project for the next eight months. Or something. Sounds about as well as you'd expect, depending on how much you fucks with LP.

DJ Fresh "The Feeling"

No Comments »



This one recently premiered on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show, and is Fresh's next single. Apparently "DJ Fresh is leading the new wave of British dance artists who are spearheading 'generation bass', the UK's biggest youth music explosion since acid house". I thought Generation Bass was a website. Sue me. Fresh's third album drops latter this year, whereas Ministry of Sound is dropping this single in late September.

Cypress Hill x Rusko - Lez Go (The People's Remix Edition)

Not sure why or how, but I guess I missed this remix competition that Cypress Hill and Rusko held for their tune "Lez Go". I'd be lying if I said the bits that were chosen blew me away. Nothing's really hitting me as heavy as something I'd champion to DJs or sign myself. The Slam Type version has legs, and the only name I recognize is Oscillatorz. In any case, for you DJs trying to add some EDM elements into your sets (maybe for transitions?), check these out.

Rick Ross ft. Dr. Dre & Jay-Z "3 Kings"

No Comments »

"Classic Hip-Hop shit". Loving this one right here. Truly love everything about this. Flex premiered this on Hot 97 last night and rewound it for a half hour. Jake One's instrumental makes this - these same bars on any other track wouldn't be this hot. Jay alludes to freestyling his verse, and while many feel he phoned it in, he drops some gems. And I'm not mad at Dre's presence (who wrote that verse? Lamar? Ross?), or Ross' pistol lean. Also love each three weaving their own brands in (Dre and his headphones, Ross and his Maybach, Jay and the arena), and the three talking about "I only love her 'cause...". Feels like more of a collaborative effort than "here's the beat, rap". Just beautiful Music. Something different. I've rewound all morning, and will play all weekend - at least. Via IFWT, who also has an interview with Rick Ross calling into Hot 97; he spoke on this track, a paternity suit and Freeway Rick Ross, among other things. MissInfo has more on Ross assembling this tune, as well as lyrics to this banger. God Forgives, I Don't is in stores July 31st.

Action Bronson "Blackbird"

No Comments »

Gotta give it up to my boy Thelonious Martin. He's been making a number of great moves, and this one right here might be one of my favorite. This cut was done for Closed Sessions Vol. 2, the new album and documentary from Chicago's Closed Sessions. This is again presented by Ruby Hornet, who's been behind Martin for a minute, and MTV2 Sucker Free. Sounds like a great marriage between Martin's throwback flavor and Bronson's bars. Light one up for to one.

INRE Danny!, "Hey You"

No Comments »

A post with a bunch of I's in three, two...

I don't like going into stories one-sided. I went on one yesterday because I felt wronged. And I'm still confused about the whole Danny!/Tyler, The Creator "Hey You" debacle. I'd apologize for the post if I felt I'd not done research on the situation in the background. Read interviews. Asked questions and got no answer, just more questions. I'm not a "fly off at the handle" type of person, especially when it comes to posts on this very site.

In any case, Danny! hit me earlier and linked me to his tumblr, where he's given his side of the story, speaking about trolling and publicity stunts. One of his main sticking points about Payback for months has been the lack of press he felt the project deserved. I get that. I also have followed OF and seen Tyler mention numerous times, at varying stages of success, that he doesn't work with people he doesn't fuck with. I don't like the feeling that artists need of some kind of "stunt" to get ANYONE press, but recognize the nature of the industry. It's a land of make believe at times, and it sucks that pure talent doesn't stick out like it should. I still am not 100% sure that that's what's going on here, and that is why I had chosen to kept my own concerns and doubt about certain aspects of Payback to myself in the first place. Part of the reason I don't play the whole "FIRST!" game with my peers to begin with.

Fact of the matter is, I fuck with Swain musically, I feel I've championed dude when a lot of sites that should have didn't, and I'm confused about the entirety of Payback. Kind of a dud to end this post on, but what else do I have?

Tyler, The Creator & Toro Y Moi "Hey You"

No Comments »


Allow me to get something off of my chest right now. Yes, this is a post regarding a previously-unreleased/unfinished track by Tyler, The Creator and Toro Y Moi, but it's really the story of deception. See, this cut apparently made the rounds on the Internets under the guise of how I first heard it - as a supposed collaboration from Danny!'s Payback album between himself and Tyler, produced by Toro Y Moi. If I'm not mistaken, the second verse on the version I heard was entirely spit by Danny Swain. Just ask MJF. Now, a number of folks have had suspicions about what they heard on Payback, but seeing as I've supported Danny! since I got put onto his music, I gave dude the benefit of the doubt. Now? I feel like I've been lied to and deceived for no real reason. After the posts and the interview, I have no choice but to feel as though this site has been used as a tool by someone who I fuck musically. Whatever works. All I'm saying is, I knew this day would come, and I'm glad I wasn't the one that had to open up the can of worms. I'd feel like a fucking idiot if I didn't speak my piece on the situation, though.

EDIT Tyler's been tweeting about "Hey You" today. I must've been in a fog: Tyler confirms that "Hey You" was just him and Toro Y Moi and doesn't know how Danny got it, and that it wasn't a feature. Speaking of OF, they released a grip of info on forthcoming albums and tours. Check it.

You should've already seen the BTS on the making of this track,and overnight YoursTru.ly threw up a preview of this one, and it's as dope as you'd think it'd be. This is of course their contribution to the "Songs from Scratch" 7", which is limited edition via Love Letters Ink and features Joey Bada$$'s "Daily Routine" on the flip. Nasty. I'd only wish that Danny and araab would make more music together. This is disgustingly perfect.

DJ WAlly & Green Dutch Present 8 Bit Bath Salt

No Comments »

WAlly is the kind of shit that opened my mind to the possibilities of freak beats and future music. It was particularly in an article detailing "illbient", but really just described cats who fucked with a grip of genres putting that sound into a pot and seeing what it do. Dub, essentially. In any case, this shit from WAlly and Green Dutch brings it back to that - hypnotic drums playing the background to a bevy of offbeat/offkilter/offsides samples, grooves and sounds. I won't say you need to be off that Bath Salts to get it, but a bit of the purp might go a long way.

Still not sure what brought this remix about, but I'm fucking loving it. Colin Munroe is co-signing it, and this can be yours for a tweet. The Zeds Dead remix of this one is intense - they inject the right amount of emotion into that bass, really making this one feel like an uphill climb for survival. Anthemic business, I hope you DJs are paying attention.

I have some guilty pleasures. JoJo's voice is one of them. I always messed with her, but when I heard her start remaking Drake tracks, I knew there was more to her than the Pop she was being given. Now instead of remaking Drake, she works with Drake's producer 40 and brings something pretty sensual right here. Not even my normal flex, but I can't deny this one. Thanks, ma. Via PinBoard.

Back when UK Garage was a thing (like 1999), it wasn't my cup of tea. Made sense, I was more into the darker styles, with faster breakbeats. Getting to know DJ Cable, and I think just getting older, has opened up my palette, and I can fucks with a track like this. Nice and bubbly, some shit you need to put on new clothes to listen to. Has a deep enough bassline to keep me into it, but I'd bankhead bounce instead of southside screwface. Classic flex. Enjoy.

DJ Kentaro ft. DJ Krush "Kikkake (Reso Remix)"

No Comments »

On August 6th, Kentaro drops his Contrast LP via Ninja Tune. This tune "Kikkake" intrigues me, as it's a wild dubstep banger... featuring DJ Krush. I know there are cuts on the track, but I'm not sure if Krush had anything to do with the production of the tune. Just questions I have. The album is a cavalcade of EDM styles, with Foreign Beggars, D-Styles, Matrix & Futurebound, Kid Koala and more contributing, and to help entice you guys to cop it, they've given away a Reso remix of "Kikkake". Raucous cut here, stepping the tune up and doing a better job at a remix than The Qemists did. Sorry. Download via Ninja Tune.

Capone "I Feel Strong"

With Big Bad and Heavy Part 3 ready to drop on the 30th of July, V's sister imprint Chronic felt the need to let a lil' flavor fly. This one is by Dillinja under his Capone guise, and while this one has the makings of a mid-set Summer DnB crowd mover, compared to a lot of the Capone work, this one is underwhelming. I've been and continue to be a loud proponent of Dilly's post-2002 work. Tunes like "Fast Car" and others were definitely crap, but he's had a lot of bangers that got swept under the rug because people want him making "The Angels Fell" again. This one right here? Feels very uninspired. Love the conga work, but I can find myself leaving the dancefloor to get a bit of water when a DJ drops this one.
