Mac Miller‘s just released “Watching Movies With The Sound Off” is my favourite album of 2013 so far. Yeah, I think it’s better than “Yeezus” and, yes, I know 2013 isn’t over yet. But I don’t care. With featurings including Ab-Soul, Earl Sweatshirt, Jay Electronica and Action Bronson, with slow, crafty beats, with sick punchlines, the album is simply fantastic. Get it.Read More
Rockie Fresh‘s ‘The Birthday Tape‘ mixtape is due this week and we got an early teaser featuring vocals by Rick Ross and beats by Lunice. The single is pretty damn good as you’d expect with such a line-up.
This is the Russian producer Nina Kraviz‘s Essential Mix of May 2012 for BBC Radio 1. A two-hour sensual mix of house goodness. Listen without moderation !
That kind of mix can get me going for a whoooole week !! Badass beats and sweet remixes including Kanye’s ‘Clique’… Pump up the volume and see by yourself that the LuckyMe Records are among the ones to watch !!
Flatbush Zombies is a Brooklyn crew comprised of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott made their debut with the video treatment of their first hit “Thug Waffle” (Prod. by Erick Arc Elliott) that celebrated two of their favorite things in life, weed and waffles, by flashing gold, smoking like its legal, and… eating waffles. They’ve gained a stronger audience recently with ASAP Mob’s “Bath Salt” single where the two East Coast gangs shared some verses. Their mixtape D.R.U.G.S. remains very confidential though. That’s somthing I’d like to change : here’s the download link !!Read More
“Rejex” is a compilation of tracks that didn’t make it to Joey Bada$$’ debut mixtape “1999”. Knowing that, that shit is all the more impressive ! A couple of tracks were recorded when he was 15 years old (“little rachel”, “indubitable”, and “silent knight”). By chance, he ended up releasing them here. Amazing beats and a real emcee flow. Fucking promising. DOWNLOAD LINK.
Odd Future affiliated Vince Staples has an impressing mixtape that is way underrated in my opinion. With most tracks produced by Snub Nose Frank, Shyne Coldchain Vol. 1 makes you cry for the release of the Vol. 2 !! You can get your copy right here and check the track list after the break.Read More
Matthias Zimmermann is one of the most underrated Djs and producer on earth. After various mixes for Brain Magazine, Radio Nova, Triangle Magazine and numerous EPs on Sound Pellegrino, the German wunderkind has mixed 79 songs in a 65-minute “bande originale“. The mix only includes music that influenced him and is impeccably finished and fluid. You’ll find some treasures in there !Read More
