Sev and I have been on top of this rising new subgenre of Neurofunk called Neuro-hop. The subgenre is a blend of Neurofunk (sub of Drum&Bass), and Hip-Hop, with more producers jumping in on the style on the style each day. Disprove dropped this hit today, pushing the limits of where bass music can go. He incorporated a funk midtempo like beat and the best part is it’s free. All around quality tune right here.

Cashmere Cat, for reasons other than being a fellow cat lover, is one of my absolute favorites right meow. I’ve been a fan of everything he’s been putting out so I was even more stoked when I got to indulge in an entire hour of his sweet sounds on this episode of Diplo & Friends radio. He does an astounding job of bouncing (literally, check the mattress squeaking motif) from hip hop to hot beats to trap and experimental noises and manages to keep the listener engaged throughout. Some highlights include his own personal tracks, Mirror Maru (2:55) and Kiss Kiss (18:20), throwbacks like the Men in Black theme (34:40), and a witty surprise in the middle of Justin Timberlake’s Señorita (9:50).
You can download this mixtape fo free, in addition to a selection of his bumpin remixes off his Soundcloud. Really though, you’ve gotta be kitten me if you don’t =^.^=

After receiving a cosign from the one and only Ellie Goulding the other week for his remix of DJ Shwann & ComletJ’s “Bushido” (can be streamed below as well), the young Miami producer Nexus is back with a brand new original track entitled “We Got It” featuring none other than Hi-Rez and Kyle. The track demonstrates a new side for the talented producer fusing together hip hop and melodic dubstep to create an amazing summer jam. Stream “We Got It” and his remix of “Bushido” and download them both for free below.

I know last week I posted a remix mixtape someone did of MF DOOM, but I am more excited to be posting up this fresh track from the master lyricist. Collaborating with one of Hip-Hop’s top producers right now, Clams Casino and MF DOOM were meant to work together. Clams did a incredible job on this usual DOOM vibed beat, it really sets up MF DOOM to spit as he does, with the the utmost understandings of the universe. No release date yet, but this track will release sometime this year.

I love classic styled Hip-Hop, the beats were not so over complicated that you never actually wound up listening to what was being said. I feel like a lot of newer syled Hip-Hop is over saturated with instrumentals and bass leaving the art of rap at a loss to the listener. The samples taken from “Deadly Combination” featuring Tupac, Biggie, and Big L were a perfect fit. Diverse did sick work on this production, with a simplistic but fresh beat.

Harry Fraud is starting to become one of my favorite Hip-Hop producers. He provided one of the sexiest jazz flutes on this, why hasn’t this been done before? Jae Millz seriously just runs on this track. He may not be one of the fastest rappers, but this is a real “Barstool Flow.” If you are working on playlist for this Saturday, I highly recommend adding this dime.

Sorry about the absence of Funky Friday last week, but here we go. This is such a great freebie from Marvel Years on Gravitas Recordings. I wasn’t expecting this to be so mellow and include a little Hip-Hop soul. Once the beat takes off you will fall in love with song. The track is part of a free 5 track EP from Marvel Years, “Nowhere But Up,” available below. After listening to the whole EP, I highly recommend it. It’s funk-tastic. Happy downloading.

I wish Louis La Roche was more popular, I love almost everything he has done. I am sick of hearing Ellie Goulding at this point, but this remix is more than enough to be able to bare her. In fact, Louis did an exceptional job with the instrumentals of this remix.
This last artist is someone I literally just came across. Cee-Roo is Funk and Soul. Most of his music is a few months old but that wont stop from sharing a few favorites from him.
