If you’re not paying attention to Erik Hassle, now would be a good time, I’ll admit I just discovered him a few minutes ago, and this guy is amazing. With “Pathetic” off his 6 track EP “Somebody’s Party,” I don’t invite you guys to just play this record, but to actually stream the whole project on his SoundCloud, it’s that good. A mix between Prince, and Robin Thicke, with the vocals, over new age Electo-R&B productions, this project is straight perfection. Give it some time before the US picks up on Erik, but it’ll happen, bigger than Disclosure in my opinion. This is a must listen and a must download!

Though he’s known by his production name, Times New Roman, the lyrical version of this incredibly integrating producer is equally as impressive. William Bolton’s “Let’s Stay Together” is self produced and about to go viral. The beat is all to catchy with original lyrics that will win you over from the get go. Peep this platinum below and keep up to date with this up-and-coming artist.

“Ohh baby baby, we can be superfriends!” that’s what “Superfriends.” ‘ about by anon singer/producer user6015866061, whom you might notice uses the same logo as the track I posted last week from the mystery submission I featured “Miss Jackson.” Much in the same vibe, this one has a 2014 electro-r&b-trap Rick James feel to it that’s going to have you 1-2 stepping and singing along in a falsetto voice. I almost want to recommend this track if you’re trying to pick up that special somebody, playing this record might boost your confidence and release that inner lady’s man! This is a must listen!

This time last year Chance had just dropped ‘Juice’, a feature track off of his second Mixtape Acid, and his buzz was just building. Around the same time last year the multi-talented Tinashe was assembling her second tape, Reverie. Now a year later they are both in the midst of their ascension into God-like-status, so it’s hard to imagine that their collaborative joint was criminally slept-on, it was low-key one of the best collabs of last year. The ‘Ecstasy’ remix was an early window into the dynamism of both of these artists. Tinashe and Chance have since individually hopped on some major joints with some artful musicians and they seem to always fit in wherever a microphone needs blessing.

Love Mansuy is back with another release “Meant It,” a dark but soothing rnb record produced by X2AN and if you’re looking to relax on this Friday evening, spark up your favorite herb, pour yourself a drink, sit back and let yourself get taken away with this one. When I hear records like this, I ask myself where did the creativity and inspiration come from as it’s completely different then what’s out there and yet everything comes together organically and rings just right. If you’re looking for something new and fresh, this is a must listen and a must download!

There is still a lot to be learned about the relatively new producer behind the Fwdslxsh moniker. From what I’ve gathered (read: stalked) on the internet he’s a young man based out of London and is affiliated with the Last Night In Paris art collective. In this latest joint, ’4U’ Fwdslxsh chose to pluck a sample from the ‘Say Yes’ tune by Floetry, he uses it as his center piece, revealing that he spent a majority of his formative years listening to R&B. The influence is apperent in these snappy minimal drum patterns that leave just enough negative space for a lush synth backdrop and a simple key driven melody. Keep your ears and eyes open for more music from this young elusive producer in 2014.
