Chill | Moodblanc – Faith

Posted by on February 12, 2014


Facebook | SoundCloud | Twitter

The interesting thing about music is that it really depends as to how and when you listen to it for it to hit you. I’ve had Moodblanc on my radar the past 2 days as they’ve been doing their promo on Twitter, and Facebook with their latest release “Faith” and it captured my attention. My first listen I knew this track was special but it didn’t hit my soul like it does this morning. Maybe it’s the Wednesday morning sunlight that’s putting life into this record and bringing the faith back, either way, I’m with it! This is a must listen and a must download! The world needs to know about Moodblanc!

Trap | Kanye West – Black Skinhead (Alex Young + Royal’s Horny Remix)

Posted by on June 20, 2013


I had a Twitter revelation the other day that went something along the lines of, oh, “You know you’re old when you can look back on the days when people used to play Kanye West at parties.” But I mean, really, Yeezus is more apt for times like “Take charge and start a riot” than it is “Kickin’ back with the homiez.” However, Alex Young has restored my faith in the fact that I might still be able rock out to Kanye like I used to. This time, rather than at a house party, it’ll be at the front row of one of Alex Young’s shows, which seems more appropriate anyways.

This track is really just an example of the artistic potential that Yeezus presents its listeners with. Looking forward to all the remixes to come.



Electro, Featured, Preview | Black Tiger Sex Machine & Kai Wachi – Tribal Gangs

Posted by on March 28, 2013

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.

House | Stereoshock – Feeling That Melody

Posted by on June 19, 2012

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.

Hip-Hop | CALiPH – Fly Away

Posted by on August 13, 2011

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.

Hip-Hop | Grieves – Against The Bottom

Posted by on July 31, 2011

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.

Follow him on Facebook and support Grieves by purchasing his latest album on iTunes – HERE

Videos | Mac Miller Explains “Blue Slide Park” Title

Posted by on July 27, 2011

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.
