Chill, Hip-Hop | Chet Faker x GoldLink – On You

Posted by on July 15, 2014

 Chet Faker x GoldLink   On You

GoldLink is currently one of those artists that I just cannot get enough of – and fortunately for me he just keeps releasing one gem after another. The unlikely yet surprisingly compatible pairing of the rising hip hop star and ubiquitous Australian vocalist Chet Faker definitely delivers, with a beautiful, catchy chorus courtesy of Faker and some honest rhymes by GoldLink, wrapped up with some soulful keyboarding, perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings having breakfast in bed (“breakfast”) with your main squeeze.

“Over”, LarsM’s latest release was done in collaboration with Side-B and vocalist Aloma Steele. Even though it is not as melodically impressive as his previous stuff, it is still a quality track worthy of a listen.

Jez Dior released his latest collaboration with up and comer G-Eazy over a Danny Score produced track “Old No. 7″ and FNT”s got it covered! As an ode to their favorite past time and the good old American whiskey drink, the two MCs spit their vices like true rockstars, and throw a toast up to those who never believed in them when they’ve already come so far. Reminiscent to my ears of that Nelly and Tim Mcraw joint “Over and Over Again,” I recommend you guys check this joint out and support! This is a must listen!

Interviews | [Exclusive] The Rise Of Collin McLoughlin

CollinMcLoughlin1 [Exclusive] The Rise Of Collin McLoughlin
We remember when we first received an e-mail from Collin McLoughlin. It was 2010, and he contacted us with a single submission. We were instantly impressed. In fact, we can still remember where we were when we heard his voice. We knew then that Collin McLoughlin was destined for greatness. While the Collin’s road to success has taken him to places like NBC’s “The Voice”, he’s on a new mission. Since July of 2013, Collin has been releasing a slew of impressive remixes and originals that have gained support from just about everyone in the blogosphere. Collin’s profile is quickly rising, so we decided to check in with him to talk about how a Youtube cover singer from New York became one of the most talked about names in the melodic bass world.

1. Forgive me for asking, but how did a guy that was knocked out in the second round of NBC’s “The Voice” become a successful melodic dubstep producer and DJ, essentially out of nowhere?

It took an incredible amount of dedication and hard work. I’ve learned everything I know about production from various online tutorials, Youtube, and trial and error. I also have had some good friends like Carlos Cid who have given me tremendous advice. That said, the majority of my DJ and production knowledge has come from an insane amount of hard hours spent teaching myself.
