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.

NYC via FLA emcee Vulkan The Krusader has been locked away in his studio hard at work for the past year. The spoils are set to drop on Feb 14th, Valentines day in the form of VX13, featuring a 13 original joints that range from future boom bap to dream-wave chill, with collabs from Sean Price, Kyle Rapps and Spaceman and more.

Vulkan tells me that “Echo Chamber” was written from the perspective of a love struck homicidal maniac whom he read about in a newspaper article. Ranging from purposefully slightly off key vocals to his on-point, punchy delivery, this track serves as nice cross-section of his talents, but there is so much more, stay tuned.

Abstract Hip-Hop | Young Jedi – A1

Sounding like it came from from some sort of retrolux time warp machine, Young Jedi, who I covered on a previous post (his production name is Ely Sounds), is releasing his first compilation of beats called ‘A1′. For those of you unfamiliar with Young Jedi, he’s been spending his time between Chicago and San Francisco over the last year and a half, articulating and perfecting his unique style. From the underground, urban-hippy music scene in SF to the flashy, embellished music style of the windy city, you can tell how the two worlds collided to create his music. This is any rappers delight, 5 perfected beats to flow over. Enjoy!

Abstract Hip-Hop | Metro Zu – Buddha Therapy

So I had to do some digging for this one but Grooveshark luckily had the stream embed so you all get to listen to this totally underrated but F$%^&* dope song that I feel needs some more attention. If you haven’t heard of them, Metro Zu is the epitome of underground culture. In the game for about 6 years now, the group is formed up of the intermissional art clan of RubenSlikk aka King Astro Slikk the Magnificent, Mr B the Poshstronaut, Freebase aka KingBaseRok, and Lofty 305. They are bringing about the next generation of Cyberpunk Funk and have been slowly gaining momentum. When not creating music, visual art, film, and literature frantically, the Metro Zu can usually be found macking females in abundance and causing chaotic disturbances in the universe.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Electronic | Flying Lotus – Ideas, Drafts, & Loops

Posted by on December 10, 2013

Flying Lotus 620x344 Flying Lotus   Ideas, Drafts, & LoopsFlying Lotus is a must know artist in my book. He takes part in so much underground and mainstream music that if you don’t know who he is you are seriously missing out. I am a huge fan of his and it’s not just because of the work he does, but he is one of the most for real producers out there. Flying Lotus is loving life and having a great time doing what he does. This isn’t an album, it’s not an EP, or even a mixtape. Flying Lotus just assembled a folder of what he has been working on lately, what a guy. The folder contains tracks he has done for Adventure Time, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, and Grand Theft Auto V, including collaborations with Earl Sweatshirt, MF DOOM, The Underachievers and many more. Of the 24 tracks within the folder there are also many originals of his own. This one of the coolest things an artist could do, Merry Christmahanakwanzika.
