So I’ve had a lot of coffee this morning, but I just realized I’ve played this track 13 times already today. Honestly though, Pat Lok has brought the fire once again. What else is new. This prolific Vancouver producer has been gaining serious momentum in 2014 with some huge tracks including remixes for Alunageorge and Olympic Ayres. And with this remix of a club classic, we expect it to have some serious success. This is the definition of catchy, don’t sleep on Pat Lok!

For the amount of SoundCloud love that Chris Smith Jr. receives, it is almost alarming that he has not yet cracked the blog world. Today, that changes. His newest song “Don’t You Get Tired” is a hustlers anthem, packed with vibrant story telling and the infectious melodies that the St. Louis rapper consistently brings to the table.
Following up the release of his soft-spoken “Smellin’ Like A Re-Up“, Chris feeds fans addictions with a different side of his music, showing he is equal parts rapper and singer. “Don’t You Get Tired” is a single off of Smith Jr.’s upcoming project aptly titled Zero Fatigue. With Kendrick Lamar’s “i” still fresh in our minds, it’s great to see other artists returning to the feel-good, motivational place that music –hip-hop specifically– was one known for.
Production credits go to the righthand man, Montee Booker. Be on lookout for plenty more collaborations from the two in the near future!

Flight Facilities have been everywhere these past months, from countless quality remixes by the likes of Darius and Lido, and snatching a #1 iTunes spot for their album release, but this record right here, takes Flight Facilities to a place they haven’t been taken yet, a vocal remix by the good folks at DiRTY RadiO of “Waking Bliss,” retitled “Religion” and it’s cool as f*ck! If you guys are familiar with Mattafix, this record reminds me of their track “Living Darfur,” in it’s political engagement, and overall sound. It’s safe to say, I’m a fan of Dirty Radio, this is a must listen and a must download!

Who knew they had this much groove in Norway? Taking us on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, Jerry Folk digs deep into this sweet classic by adding a funky bass-line and completely reviving those smooth vocals. We truly are “lifted-shifted” by the level of creativity Jerry Folk brings to this tune and even happier that it’s a free download. This is a tune I haven’t been able to take off repeat, and neither will you – enjoy!

Whattt, DiRTY RADIO just released their best record to date “Infinity,” dropping some soul over Esta ft. J-Bird’s beat, and damn this track is lifting my spirits up on this grey Wednesday. Continuing their signature style of making songs out of available prods online by big name producers, this time they blend old school R&B over an uptempo hip hop/r&b/dance record, and it’s all just feel good soul music in the end for you to enjoy. If I was Justin Timberlake or Robin Thicke (or Pharell?) , I’d be paying attention, this is hot! It’s a must listen and a must download!

Greg Aram is an goldmine of raw, undiscovered talent.
His first official video release, “Alone”, paints the picture of heartbreak in the form of a somber R&B-pop ballad. While his songwriting certainly needs a little honing, the soulful voice that Aram brings to the table is reason enough to listen to “Alone”.
The video is simple, yet entrancing. A view at what the song can mean to people. Here’s what the director had to say: “We believed that the end of a relationship is a lot like being in “the club” and not the hyper exaggerated version we see on tv. Instead we show a place filled with life and color yet it is still hollow and lacks feeling. It’s a place where the ability to connect to others is gone and instead we just have individuals in a space feeling lost and broken.”
Enjoy the Greg Aram song and video, there’s plenty more on the horizon.
