Lolz at first I was all like, Omgee, Ice-T is back in the game Woop Woop. It took me a second to zap out of my buzz to realize it was Killer Mike and Tkay Maidza sounding so fresh and so fierce thanks to the adderall infused rework of producer Vasco. The production is quite fitting as it adds the playfulness that the original version lacked.
Holy freeeeeak! Talk about a blast from the past (I guess this is where my age really shows). Alternative indie band take on a 90s cult favorite track, Born Slippy. Originally released by British band Underworld as a B-side, the song gained popularity with the not so very well known movie “Trainspotting”...twenty-two years later and we now have this....
Without missing a step Atlanta rapper Pollari releases yet another ambitious fire of a track featuring Lil Peep. Produced by Brobak, Fantasy carries an addictive beat that will be sure to leave listeners in a hazy state of mind crying out for more, much like the ladies on the song’s artwork.
Many of our favorite artists have come forward over recent months in support of Stand With Standing Rock, and today, Dominican Republic-born, Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Jarina De Marco is the latest name to be added to that list with her call to action anthem, Release The Hounds.
It's the first week back at work after the holidays and spirits are at an all time low, but Los Angeles artist Ryan Marshall Lawhon, aka Mating Ritual, is here to give us the boost of energy that we need to get through to Friday with the rip-roaring How You Gonna Stop It?
Music was basically the one thing that saved 2016, and 2017 is definitely sounding as though it's going to be even better. On that note, grab your brand spanking new AirPods and enjoy a taste of what's to come this year by hitting play on the latest tracks from Gabrielle Aplin, Fickle Friends, Run The Jewels, Abra, Francis And The Lights and lots more.
New indie band MOSA WILD are coming at us at full force with their unapologetically epic indie rock debut, Smoke. The track includes all of the necessary ingredients of a delightfully emotional indie-pop anthem: Soft atmospherics, steady drums, guitars, and uplifting backing vocals that you can’t help but feel yourself get sucked into.
Awful Records artist ABRA is gaining some much deserved hype with her sultry hypnotic sound that truly shines on her new track, Bounty. It features a stripped-down ticking beat, soft electronics, and her silky smooth R&B-style vocals that keep you in a hypnotic trance throughout the 5 minute duration.
Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Emma Sameth instantly won us over with her chilly electro-R&B track, 2 AM. It’s produced by DNTST and Berg, and it features a snap-filled, winding beat that keeps the track going, while her breathy-soft vocals set the track’s sensual tone.
Francis and the Lights is a Oakland-based musical project led by singer-songwriter-producer Francis Farewell Starlite. My City’s Gone is a beautifully haunting track that’s carried by lonesome piano keys, softly sparkling electronics, and vocal effects that add an extra pinch of charm.
