If you didn’t see Timeflies twisting the chart topping track, “Timber”, you aren’t paying close enough attention. Pitbull, Ke$ha, and producers Dr. Luke, Sermstyle, & Cirkut may have rode this radio hit to the top of the charts, but Rez and Cal just demolished this remix. Cal. Goes. IN.

You don’t have to be Phil Helmuth to a fan of Aer’s newest single, “Spades, Clubs, & Diamonds”. Hell, you don’t even have to know how to play poker. This breezy new cut from the Boston duo strong on their come up is exactly what we expected; light, smooth, and blended with their signature sounds. David initiates the vocals, but Carter comes in soon after to deliver a very balanced piece of work. This track marks the second single off their forthcoming self-titled album due out 1/21/14. Grab this track for free when you pre-order the album, or purchase it solo on iTunes.

After lighting up the country with their Warning Signs tour, Timeflies will be back in the studio, clocking the hours (pun intended) for their debut full length album. I can’t speak first hand on every tour stop, but based on their performance in Boston, it’s without question the level of production going into each and every one of their live shows has skyrocketed since the last time I saw them. Lights, fog, more lights, huge sound, energy, live freestyles, and much more of everything on an even larger scale.
The video above is a compilation, chopped up and blended together by Mike O’Brien Films, of several live performances of their radio ready single, “SMFWU”. Without question a fan favorite anthem off of their recent EP, Warning Signs, but this visual gives you an idea of how live these shows get.
Grab the EP below and check out a few photos from Timeflies homecoming show in Boston.

Logic has been fairly quiet since he hopped off tour with Cudi, Big Sean, and Tyler the Creator, dropping a loose track here and there, but for the most part, remaining relatively quiet. Well evidently along with writing and recording, Logic has been toning his production game as is evident on his newest release, “Like Me”. We’ve heard one Logic-produced track in the past, “Common Logic/Midnight Marauder ” which was co-produced by C-Sick and had a feeling more tracks were on the horizon, but this, in my opinion, is a big step forward for Logic. As Logic teased a few weeks ago, him and Casey Veggies were in the studio together, which amounted to this cold, raw new new from the two rising youngsters.
With rumors of the debut album on the way, I’m sure we’ll get a few more loose freebies before that time comes. In the meantime, keep an ear our for a Logic assisted Jon Bellion record coming with Jon’s album release, 12/10.

This young boy is a problem, you should call it in.
Wordplay on fire. Arguably my favorite JB record to date.
Jim Morrison, Christopher Wallace, Bob Marley, Kanye West, Chris Zarou. Boom, album coming very soon.

Jon Bellion’s creative process begins hours, day, weeks, maybe even months before he opens the doors and enters the studio. It begins as a concept and once Jon enters his element, the creative thoughts and sounds stack like Lego’s. Drums, one of a kind sounds Jon lets loose on the spot, & whatever other tricks he has up his sleeve on that given day – they all fill into each record. For those of you that saw & heard “One More Time” when Jon released it a few weeks back know the seductive story that inspired it all. What daddy don’t know, doesn’t hurt daddy, right? If you missed it or you want to watch it one more time, you can do so here.
Album due out before we hit 2014! Hit the break and see if you can find Bellion’s name in the MMLP2 album insert!

It’s been a few since Northeast duo, Aer, hit us with a new track. While their good vibes, string riffs, & carpe diem lyrics are often associated with “summer music”, “Won’t Laugh” carries their sound through all four seasons. The almost tribal toned intro rings us in, as David picks up the guitar and carries the hook while Carter lays down a few noteworthy verses; “Now you wonder why I wouldn’t trade my life with you, Why?! Cuz you hang the same keys from the same hook every afternoon, My angels lookin down upon me from a great view, they got my back but they hate you”. ’Do what you love, love what you do’ mentality.
Soaring high, it’s safe to say these guys will be raising the bar on their self entitled album due out January 21st!
