Damn. This video is truly something different and is just as much fun to watch as it is to listen to. Chicago MC ShowYouSuck has been around the Chicago scene for a minute but I think with a video like this it, and he, can go viral. The beat was produced by Peter Cottontale and Mike Jaxx and the video was directed by Aaron Perkins Jr. With a fantastic flow from ShowYouSuck, this whole piece is way too on point. Definitely make sure to give this a watch, I’m sure it shouldn’t disappoint.

Instead of taking a selfie, you should be listening to this remix of it by Tim Gunter. Tim shows off his versatility by completely stripping it down and adding a hip hop/trap sound to it that hits hard with a great drop. Here’s what Tim had to say about the track:
“I started messing with this song because the DJ in me wanted to play it, but I could never find a good time to play the original. So, I slowed it down, added those signature 808s, and made it more of a #HOODSELFIE. After showing it to a few friends, they really liked it so I decided to let it out.”
Get this one ready for the weekend and holler at the song below.

I can’t tell you what it is, but something about funk music just gets me. So groovy, so upbeat, so perfect. Today we have Resonant Frequency’s brand new EP, 4sight, and boy is it a good one. Think Gramatik, Big Gigantic, Griz type of sound minus the huge dubs. Pop this one on and you’ll be grooving all night long. Holler at the EP below and enjoy!

I think it’s funny when people start listening to Chance and are all like “YOO have you heard this Chance the Rapper guy?! He’s so dope like all of his music is tight”. Chance’s reach has hit full effect and he is one of the hottest MC’s on the rise and I couldn’t be any happier for him. After Acid Rap and 10Day, it’s very refreshing to hear new sounds from Chance to hold us over until the next anticipated project. Home studio features a different type of Chano flow, that similar to Vic’s “Feel That”, and if it’s any indication on where his sound might be going then it can only go up from here. Holler at the song below & SAVEMONEY.

The only way I can even try and describe French producer Tchami’s sound would be: Grimey. Today we have a full preview of his brand new track, Untrue, as well as a fantastic remix to Martin Garrix’s huge track Wizard. If his “future house” genre is the next big thing, I’m all in for it. Tchami is the start of something new and brilliant in the production world and it’s time to pay attention. Peep both tracks below and enjoy!

Who needs more cowbell when you have a perfectly good jazz flute, don’t forget the J is silent. The real question about this song is why is it called crying flute when this is such a beautiful song. 813 has been killing it and received a lot of support with his huge track “Glitter Sand” as well as his guest mix for Diplo and friends not too long ago. Key point of this write up, listen to this song and pay attention to 813′s next moves. Holler at the song and soundcloud below.
