Posted by on October 22, 2014

For some reason I’ve been in a hip hop mood lately for no reason, and that must be cause good hip-hop is coming back, (ya’ll heard that new Meek Mill that dropped last night??!), but this latest by DJ Whoo Kid, Tony Yayo, and Watch The Duck “Frosted Leaf” is the perfect smoke up record, and you already know I’m going to be on that wave as soon as I get out of work. No lie this track is a must listen, this track bangs! Smoke up, toke up!

Progressive House, Trance | Lush & Simon, Uforik – Hydrogen

Posted by on October 22, 2014

Lush Simon Uforik Hydrogen Lush & Simon, Uforik   Hydrogen
Originally a “Demo Of The Week” on Hardwell on Air 153 called “Air” from Uforik, “Hydrogen” has now been repackaged with the skilled help of progressive starlets Lush & Simon. A global collab, bringing together Chinese newcomer Uforik and Italians Lush & Simon, this tune has the airy sound of its namesake. Sounding very similar to something from Audien’s back catalog, the blend of trance and progressive makes this tune a very easy-going, soothing progressive track that flows through the ears. Grab the tune now on Beatport courtesy of Doorn Records.

Albums, Featured, Hip-Hop | Logic – Under Pressure [Album Reflections]

Posted by on October 21, 2014

Where do I begin?

Exactly 1,163 days I received an email.  That email just so happened to be my first official introduction to Maryland hip-hop artist, Logic.  Described as a young, talented MC known for his lyrical prowess – I couldn’t have said it better myself - and fortunately for us, that’s still the same Logic we’re looking at today.  Since that introduction, Logic has been my favorite artist, period.  To call out a few – he’s genuine, personable, tenacious, confident, well spoken, and last but certainly not least, one BEAST of a rapper.  Preaching “peace, love & positivity” since the very start, he’s one artist who has stayed true to his message, through and through.  His story has undoubtably changed hundreds if not thousands of people’s lives for the better.  The craziest part is, Under Pressure is still just the beginning.

When asked what “Under Pressure” means to him, Logic responded,

“For me, it’s the duality of who I am. Being Bobby and being Logic, being under pressure personally in all the things that I go through in my life. Just as a regular dude, ’cause outside of music, there’s people who look at me like I’m not shit. I’m just little Bobby, dealing with the pressures from my family, where I come from. All that. Also, being in the rap game and just being under pressure to sell whatever you gotta sell.” [via XXL]

He’s right though – he’s the debonair “Young Sinatra” on the street, then he steps into the booth and all previous conceptions vanish. He embodies some form of legendary lyrical machine.  That to me is what separates Logic from much of his competition.

It’s clearly been a long time coming to deliver the album and as you’ll hear on “Growing Pains III”, he has recorded over 1,700 songs in the past 10 years, only 150+ of which have been released to date.  Under Pressure is far from a grab bag of records.  Carefully crafted, Logic and team have put countless hours into this album and I hope that after listening, you’ll recognize that.  The 12 tracks (15 on the Deluxe version) collectively paint a bigger picture.  As expected, the album is a very raw, personal look into Logic’s life, and more specifically his upbringing.  From family struggles to personal and musical accomplishments, you’ll truly understand the person behind the mic after listening to this album.

As if I haven’t already giving you enough of a reason to go buy the album, legendary producer No I.D. blessed it with his executive production.  I don’t mean to jump the gun, but typically anything he touches turns gold.  Then platinum.

“Conversations with No I.D
Who made hits with Ye, got hits with Jay
Now he wanna fuck around and make hits with me
If it’s meant to be, then it’s meant to be
Can’t express what that meant for me, what it mean to me
Man, I swear the shit like a dream to me, what it seemed to be” – Till The End [Track 12]

Last but not least, I want to once again give a shout out to the whole team at Visionary Music Group.  Logic’s in house producer, 6ix stepped up and destroyed the production on half of the album.  The rest of the team is too humble to take credit, but I thank you all for the work you’ve put in.  VMG is a blueprint for organic growth, keep at it boys (& girls?).

Without further adieu I suggest you GO GRAB BOTH DIGITAL VERSIONS on iTUNES and take a trip to your local record shop (or Best Buy, Walmart, Target, etc.) and clear out the shelves (if you can beat Henry to it)!!!  100k the first week!

Electro-House | Lookas – Loko (NGHTMRE Remix)

NGHTMRE just dropped a heavy remix of  Lookas’ “Loko” and it’s one of their best remixes in my book! You can tell the guys are getting used to these festival appearances, because their music is now geared towards building up that energy from the crowd. This one has a DJ Snake flavor to it, meets Dillon Francis, and I don’t know about ya’ll, but that’s what I call top notch production! This is for sure a must listen and a must download!

My Jersey grown boys I.O.U. are back with a powerful track “Unless We Dance” which brings up that moment where you catch the eyesight of a gorgeous lady, wherever, and just like that, she walks off the bus, or crosses you on the sidewalk, and you’ll never know her name, or even have the chance to spend the rest of your life with that beautiful girl, and yeah Buck and Izee made a song about just that. If you’re in love, or crushing hard, this track will speak to you, it’s a must listen!

As a thank you for hitting 10,000 SoundCloud followers, the Swiss producer from Brighton hits us with a freebie of Slow Magic’s “On Yr Side” and it’s a chill house gem, which is doing my soul wonders with a few hours left to go of work, plus it includes a sample from one of the catchiest house records of the year “Pushing On.” It’s always a pleasure hearing new content from Sebastian Carter, and I look forward to seeing him receive the recognition he deserves as a very talented producer!
