Abstract Hip-Hop | Appleby – Drinkin’

Posted by on January 22, 2015

 Appleby   Drinkin

Listen up and listen good. Appleby has been grabbing my attention with each of his few but powerful releases. Today we welcome Him and his brand new single Drinkin’ to FNT. He brings a new and different sound with each new song, and Drinkin’ is no different. Bee actually had a quick something to say about the song:

“The concept and act of drinking is a newly formed habit of mine. Introduced to me last year through an adventurous relationship that ended in mutual silence. Drinkin’ gives insight but reserves the details for a future release.”

What impresses me so much with Appleby and his sound is the artistry behind it. Whether it is the hooks, verses, or production, everything builds together in fantastic harmony. Coupled with Appleby’s fantastic lyricism, his sound is something that will be around to stay. Get to know Appleby and his sound. Also Bee decided to give out another track “Scars in Waiting” which also will help you get to know Appleby. Enjoy and look out for more to come.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Chill, Electro, Videos | Hozyboy – Woods

Posted by on October 20, 2014

Too be honest, this dude came out of nowhere. One minute I was aimlessly looking at nothing on the internet and the next I was the most stoked I’ve been in a while to say the least. At first it was just the music video, displayed above, that turnt me up. On my Reddit feed it read “VISUAL MINDBLOWING VIDEO & MUSIC”, “Wait for the watermelon to explode after the asian man plays the flute”, and “Cartoons, nature, and asian man, and a watermelon. Honey for your eyes” so I was intrigued – which he definitely wasn’t lying once I got to actually watching the music video. F****** brilliant. I was then so stoked off the music video that I found a SoundCloud link and clicked it instantly. Not only is “Woods” a vibing, feel good beat, his other compositions are crazy impressive as well. Hozy is 100% worth the look with other dope songs like “You Just Got Abducted by Some Turnt Up Aliens” and “Retro Heartbreak“; It’ll be exciting to see what this aspiring artist will come up with next.

Abstract Hip-Hop | Octave Minds – Tap Dance feat. Chance the Rapper and the Social Experiment

chancetap Octave Minds   Tap Dance feat. Chance the Rapper and the Social Experiment

I always am so interested to hear the beat whenever I see a new song with Chance on it. We’ve gone from “Back in this B***h” to “Everyday” now to this. I think this is Chance’s best release in a while and I think its the beat. I’ve been waiting for something playful and energetic, and with this it gives both the pretty nice vocals mixed with a upbeat verse. Everything about this song just works. Peep it below and definitely be sure to check out the Octave Minds guys with their album releasing September 15. Check out their other stuff on Soundcloud here, it’s quite fantastic.

Woah. Not expecting that. It has been a minute since Kendrick has graced our ears with new music, and today’s release is something a little different. Having FlyLo on the production is something I find very fitting for the two, who both have unique sounds that clearly work pretty well together on this track. I believe there is a new album in the works and set to be coming out pretty soon. Look for that and more releases to come and enjoy the track below.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Trap | Love Me X The ClubCasa Chamber Orchestra (SuGar Edition)

 Love Me X The ClubCasa Chamber Orchestra (SuGar Edition)

Alright so I’ve got 17 minutes on my self-timer before my computer goes into lockdown and I’m forced to start writing my 10-page midterm essay, so I gotta make this brief. Just moments earlier I was tipped off about this French producer SuGar and upon listening just to his most recent upload, I was compelled to expose this hidden gem. This track is a bit of a remix inception so ima break it down for you here. It all started with Lil Wayne’s “Love Me” feat. Drake & Future, which was then adapted (almost the point of being unrecognizable!) by sly5thave, a Brooklyn jazz musician and producer (who has some incredible other jazz covers worth checking out), which also features The ClubCasa, a Brooklyn-based music collective. Then finally, SuGar got ahold of that, spun a little trap on that ish and sprinkled it with some Bun B “Draped Up” rhymes and voilà! You’ve got this dirty south, brassy trap joint that’s simply one of a kind. And I’ve got another 5 minutes left on my timer, just enough to hit replay. Enjoy ~

Pomo has been killing it lately. It seems as though the Canadian’s have been pumping out some seriously dope producers as of late 2013. I’d stay tuned if I were you because these beats are so funky fresh and speaker ready.
