DJ Cable went ham on Justin Timberlake's breakout solo single, "Like I Love You." Something about the way he threw that grime-y edit on those Neptunes drums?! This is the anthem for the rest of the week.
Word is that this is the beginning of a Triangulum free download series, so keep on the lookout for those.
"F.I.S.H. & Coffee Milk," but we can't relate to everyone when they take it there. Guess that's why we need a Jon Hope, huh? Stream the full album down below.
Been waiting for this Tone Liv x DJ Priority project Clockwork for a while! Seventeen tracks of that raw hip-hop straight out of Jersey? Nothing but head-nodding instrumentals with rough, rugged, and raw lyrics. 'Nuff said.
"Searching For Tupac Shakur explains the life of prolific rap icon 2Pac from his birth within the Black Panther Party throughout his rocky yet extremely successful music and film career up until his untimely death. Rich Quick, a life-long fan of 2Pac delivers this biography in rhyme-form driving attention away from both the well known feud between he and The Notorious B.I.G and the many conspiracy theories surrounding his passing."
Taso Links With DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, and DJ Manny For His 'Teklife Till Tha Next Life Vol. 2' Compilation
Footwork is a sound that feels like it was made for me. Even bigger than drum & bass, which consumed my life for years on end (and is still near to my heart), there's something about a bunch of dance music-loving DJs and producers who throw SO MUCH of their hip-hop love and appreciation into their material. The Teklife crew is it for me; their sample sources and aesthetic just speak to me.
Teklife member Taso is back with the second of his Teklife Till Tha Next Life series, featuring collaborations with DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, and DJ Manny, breathing new life into material from Raekwon, Styles P, Ice Cube, and others, while still keeping it jungle-paced and amazing. Grab this shit for free ASAP, then drop a 10 spot on the first volume.
Lucky 7 (which is out on July 7th), Action Bronson and Joey Bada$$ coast over this silky smooth track. Something all piff blowers need to bounce and rock to.
Sometimes, I get shit that's dope because dude is a great spitter. Others? It's just a fire instrumental with meh lyrics. This "Nonpareil" shit from RoQy TyRaiD with beats from Jimmy Flight is the best of both worlds. The track doesn't stand still; there's so many intricate, intriguing textures to this track, allowing RoQy's amazing stream of consciousness bars to work wonders. The cover and title won't make sense until the very end, but it'll hit you and you'll just throw your fitted in the air like "yup, that's it."
If you're a fan of dusty fingered breakbeats, and didn't rock with QBert's first Hard Boiled Scrambled Egg mix, you played yourself. This time around, the master links up with DJ Rockit Rooster to get back... waaaaay back. Live your life to this.
