Now this is a real Electro banger. If this isn’t the next massive raging tune, I have lost all faith in humanity. Kai Wachi was just part of an epic Trap collaboration with Squnto called “Brain Splat”. It is really awesome to see him hit back with a hot preview already with Black Tiger Sex Machine. Despite the fact that this video is only 41 seconds long with the track preview for 30 seconds, one can already taste the sweat that this beast of an original will create on the rave scene. “Tribal Gangs” is set to release on Kannibalen Records on May 7th, mark your calendars.

NY’s very own Stereoshock amalgamates That Melody by Mark Simmons and Carita La Nina along with Make Me Feeling by Simone Farina, Alessandro Vinai and Andrea Vinai. The result is that track you’ve been yearning for, and eloquently depicts my lack of posts lately as an attempt to maintain this particular echelon of track. This entails that when I do post, you should expect nothing less than absurd. I figure, it’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt by posting anything less. Many of you can relate to the endless search for that diamond in the rough, and it’s tracks like this that restore faith and make it all the worthwhile.

The other day I asked our FB fans (if you haven’t already done so like us – HERE) to drop their favorite unknown rapper in the comment box and CALiPH is the one that caught my ear. Although I didn’t post a criteria, I was looking for someone with raw talent that might help me restore my faith in the budding hip hop artists. The cuts below were my favorite tracks off his Soundcloud account. “Fly Away” is totally dope, damn, so is Gettin’ Out.

You know what I like about this guy? He doesn’t rap for the girls, he raps for himself. Sure, the video might include a hot girl or two (definitely not three that’s for sure) but you still catch him running down the street three guys deep in a flannel and skinny jeans. There’s something to be said for that – this is exactly what I mean about visuals providing that extra insight that heightens your understanding and appreciation for the music. Ben aka Grieves delivers real hip hop. Originally born in Chicago, Grieves later moved to a few other locations, providing him with a multitude of influences including the alternative sound he blends in with his rap. It reminds me a little of the lost art that fellow Chi-town artist, Rhymefest, tends to bring to the table (ps. do yourself a favor and watch Rhymefest “One Hand Pushup” video after the jump aka click MORE bc its gnarly). Maybe he’s more like Em in Stan, you be the judge…Take a leap of faith and give Grieves an ear.

Props to MTV for asking this question and even bigger props to Mac Miller for providing a thoughtful response. Nowadays album titles, song titles, etc seem like mindless tasks for some artists, but fortunately this restored some of my faith in the artists that run this hip hop show. More importantly, this just goes to show how invested and passionate Miller is about his music career.

At first, the mashes that included several songs rather than the traditional 1 v 1 setup threw me off – I thought it was too much packed into one beat. However, artists like Yoni, Dj Dibella, 5 & A Dime, and Kap Slap have swayed my opinion with their recent works. Yoni’s “Turns To Gold” blends tracks like Deadmau5′s Raise Your Weapon with Goulding’s Lights and Wynter Gordon’s Dirty Talk. Normally, I can discern what will work based on the 1 v 1 titles, but I just have to take a leap of faith with these multi-tracked songs. For all you conventionalists who are still warming up to this sound, check out the bonus tracks by Medium Sized Jeff and Tommy T.

Here’s a sick “electrified” remix to Freaks and Geeks. If you have yet to take a leap of faith with Childish, now is the time. I’ll admit that I was skeptical at first – too many celebrities seem to be tainting the music game with their rubbish these days – fortunately Gambino doesn’t fall under that standard. If he continues to put out witty bars and tasteful productions he could easily become a big name in the rising star game.
