Electro-House | Live City – Slingshot

Live City - Slingshot

Live City have been on tear lately and it culimates in the release of “Slingshot” via Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Recordings. Their relationship with Tommie goes well beyond a few signed records, they have done a ton of tracks together and Tommie has been a sensei to them. This acid influenced fireball has been supported by some bug names like Marcus Schossow, Sander van Doorn and Benny Benassi all supporting in person. Grab this tune and head out to see them at Slake on the 18th if you are in NYC.

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

Posted by on March 19, 2014

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 ~

Them Academy boys are it again with their latest release “Closer To Me,” a catchy little ditty with sunny vibes, and a refreshing sound compared to everything else that’s out there. For a 2 minute and 30 second song it’s a true tease from what we can expect from these 2, and another reason for you to download it and play it on repeat. Other then the music, I have to applaud the guys for their songwriting, pay attention to their lyrics, these guys can write! If you want to know what California and Brooklyn sound like when they make music together, Academy is it. This is a must listen and a must download.

I have said it before and I will say it again Maino is one of my favorite rap artists. Earlier today the Brooklyn native released his newest EP entitled “K.O.B” which is short for “King of Brooklyn” . One of my favorite tracks is “Great” ft. 911 Kev which is produced by the homie Myles William and Reefa for ATM. The song provides a hard New York beat, some smooth background vocals that warm the track up for a dope delivery from Maino. Check out this track below and download his free EP. This is a must listen and a must download!

Posted by on October 9, 2013


I introduced you guys to Brooklyn native G4shi a few months back with his record “Who Made Me” and he’s back with “Born Broke,” produced by UK producers SuccessMusic. G4shi has lived a hell of a life, from being born in North Africa, from Albanian parents, to moving to Brooklyn during his teenage years. This past year though things have been looking up  for him, as he’s been featured on MTV, and is getting spins from Peter Rosenberg on his Hot 97.1 show. Keep it up G4shi, you’re getting closer to your American dream! Must listen!

Electro, Pop | Great Good Fine Ok – You’re The One For Me

Posted by on September 21, 2013


“You’re The One For Me” by Brooklyn band Great Good Fine OK is the track that marks the end of Summer, and the beginning of Fall. This is the band’s first track on their SoundCloud, and at the sound of things, I’m sure they have a lot more dope records on their way. If I were to compare their sound to any other sound out there it’d be Passion Pit. Play this record and hear why.  Enjoy the free download! Must listen and must download!

Pop | Vera Flash – Masochistic

Posted by on September 6, 2013


NYC artist Vera Flash just released a video for her single “Masochistic” off her 4 track EP “I Am A Museum,” and I am impressed. Vera linked up with Brooklyn producer Rusty Mack to put together a dark and poppy sound, comparable to the likes of Santigold, Lady Gaga, and M.I.A. The Colin Palmer directed video is a work of art, and we can always expect something different from Vera when it comes to visuals, you should see her video “Hustle.” This is overall a strong project, and a good teaser for the sound that we can anticipate in the future from Miss Flash. I look forward to hearing more from Vera and her team! Shout out to Rusty Mack and Red Walrus!
