This Culture Clash is going to be INSANE. Reigning champions Channel One Sound System vs. Major Lazer vs. Annie Mac Presents Magnetic Man vs. Boy Better Know!??! Going down at Wembley Arena. Almost wish I had a ticket to fly out there and experience this one!

Via MarQ: "This record is a collaborative between myself and experimental, proto-new wave musician Gary Wilson (Stones Throw). It's rare that you get the opportunity to work with the actual artist rather than just sampling the record. Gary opened his vaults and provided ample soundscapes. Some of these instrumentals dating back to 1973 may have been heard before. Others may not. The ending result is a pure creative expression and meshes Hip Hop, Psychedelic, Jazz, Funk...."
My favorite off of Electronic Dream 2, or at least I thought it was ED2. Word from Spin is that the version of ED 2 that FACT had posted was out (with a damn eMusic link, that's since been removed). Maybe eMusic jumped the gun on the release? At this point, the version eMusic had up (and I'm guessing was selling for a time) has already leaked on your Internets, so who knows what's going to happen with the final release.
Wasn't expecting a drumstep flex from KillSonik. This drops November 4th.
The time for talk is over. And they decided to hit you guys with the mix a week early. That's right, Trap Bubbling, the Munchi-produced, Trap-A-Holics co-signed and Disc Jockey Nappy mixed opus is available RIGHT NOW over on ClubTapes. The EDM world and the Rap world sound so perfect together, don't you agree?! Not time for the wild talk - just devour and thank the gods for bringing this one forth. And trust - this release is just the tip of the iceberg!

Weird to watch. It's more like they guys rap to their album in it's entirety. The way their tracks are done, they have equal amount of time for, um, not rapping, and those bits feel a bit awkward. Shouts to Mixmag for doing this. The Uprising drops October 1st on mau5trap.
I don't beez in the trap, but I be into Trap!
I'd heard rumblings that Coki was starting his own label, but had no idea when. This morning, looks like Don't Get It Twisted has sorted its first release, from the man himself, is available for purchase right now. And oddly enough, it's not as weird as I thought it'd be. It's that hypnotic, fat bass shit that you expect from him, but not as twisted as my favorites from him. Hit the jump for previews of "Bob's Pillow" and "Spooky", and cop both tunes digitally via Surus.
Via PNCRadio.fm: This episode features none other than the much heralded Queensbridge rap legend Cormega. Let’s just say everything you wanted know about ‘Mega, from his early beginning as a Brooklynite..witnessing the murder of his mother at the tender age of 4….his transition to QB….his love/hate relationship with Nas….The Firm….Chris Lighty….Def Jam, we got you covered. Cormega held no punches word to Nature. Who was The Notorious BIG planning to conquer with “The Commission”? Yep, we know. Just hit play on the podcast below. If you don’t know..It’s The Combat Jack Show. #NoFiller #Newmanati
Love what was done here. Sid Sriram's had an eight-minute short film made crazy daydream-esque, combining cuts from his Daydream EP, which is available now via LiveMixtapes. The music's dope, and I love the unique package. Don't sleep. Or, do sleep (during the day) and let this be the soundtrack.

The soundtrack to my life has been the Munchi x Trap-A-Holics Trap Bubbling mixape that Nappy mixed. Shit's just bananas, but until now none of the tracks ahve even been heard outside of random club dates. Today, one of my personal favorites from the project, and possibly the best example of what this project is about, was let go on ClubTapes. Flippin' the mighty "Dipset Anthem", Munchi infuses his Rotterdam Trap appeal to the classic banger. And goddamn does it go in!
Trap Bubbling drops on September 14th - the day the game officially changes.

Been waiting for this one for years. Literally. Zilla Rocca, Has-Lo and Curly Castro (along with cats like Elucid, BLKHRTS, Ethel Cee, Castle, Random and more) put their blood, sweat and tears into this Wu-Tang homage project. If you call yourself a fan of the Wu, you need to check this!
