House, Techno | Boys Noize – Go Hard EP

Posted by on June 25, 2013

Is there anyone out there quite like Boys Noize? With his latest EP, the aptly titled Go Hard, the talented Mr. Ridha once again proves that he’s pretty much in a league of his own. His high octane brand of acid house is present in each of the five new tracks debuted yesterday (with the possible exception of “Starwin,” which is replete with acidy squelches but ultimately a buoyant disco confection), but the more remarkable feat is the level of versatility he displays. The EP veers from ominous and consummately analogue (“Inhale/Exhale”) to techno meets trap with notes of hardstyle (the titular “Go Hard”) to the aforementioned “Starwin,” which sounds like something Madeon might make after watching the full Discovery video and then sucking down a bunch of nitrous. “Excuse Me” (escoooooz me) and “Push Em Up” are both hard-nosed dance floor jams that are impossible not to move to. Go Hard is well worth the cost of an iTunes download — in the grand Boys Noize tradition, it manages to be dark, fun, energetic and fresh all at once.

Maye Star unleashed the second single off his upcoming mixtape, Mayehem, scheduled to drop sometime in April.  Backed by some light brass, soothing strings, and melodic keys “The Takeover” gives us an introduction into what we’re about to hear from Boston’s own Maye Star.  Maye exercises his ability to rattle off words at a very fast pace, which is something I’d love to see Maye do more often.  #DreamTeam

Hip-Hop | Maye Star – Crunch Time Freestyle [Exclusive]

Posted by on December 24, 2011

I introduced Maye Star a couple weeks back with the release of his first single, “Go Hard”, off his upcoming mixtape, Mayeham.  In lieu of the birth of baby jesus, Maye gift wrapped rapped up this promo freestyle over Bow Wow’s track, “Crunch Time”, produced by Roc Nation’s own Jahlil Beats on this crisp Christmas afternoon.  This track will not be featured on Maye’s upcoming mixtape, but gives you an idea of the wordplay he is capable of exercising.  With features on the project from XXL Freshman 2012 nominee, Los, fellow Bostonians, Moufy & De-Lor among others, this FNT sponsored tape is already shaping up to be a breakout project.

P.S. Did I mention this kid’s only 16?

Hip-Hop, Rap | Maye Star ft. Deon Chase – Go Hard

Posted by on November 29, 2011

Maye Star. Now that you’ve heard the name, remember it. The young MC residing in Boston is lyrically infectious.  I first caught wind of Maye Star when I saw him open for YONAS several months back in Boston.  He proceeded to roll lyrics off his tongue like he had been doing it for years.  There’s no question he’s got a rare ability to spit it quick, but it should be known his lyrics hold truth and personality as well.  “Go Hard” features fellow Boston artist, Deon Chase, and serves as the newest single off his upcoming mixtape, MayeHam.  The project will include features from Moufy as well as Los (who Maye has impressed time and time again at post show cyphers), and FNT regular De-Lor.  This may be the first time we’ve featured Maye Star, but it certainly won’t be the last.
