Posted by on November 4, 2011

In order to prep everyone for their EP, which drops sometime in early 2012, New Linen is giving us a sneak peak at what’s to come. Making the Most is a clean acoustic/hip hop jam with a catchy chorus complimented by smooth verses. If this is a preview of whats to come, I can’t wait to hear what else New Linen has in store for us in 2012.

After dropping Merp Nation back in August, New Linen didn’t even take a moments pause before getting right back on the grind. Their latest track Higher, is another solid track from this captivating hip hop duo.

Mixtapes | New Linen – Merp Nation

Posted by on August 5, 2011

After listening through this entire mixtape, and searching for the proper description..I kept returning to smooth. So what exactly does that mean? I think it means that everything seems to come together perfectly, the lyricism, the simple but addicting beats, and the melodic choruses. New Linen is really the full package and after one listen through Merp Nation, I think you will agree. I have included a few of my favorite tracks for preview below and you can download the full mixtape below that.

Hip-Hop | New Linen – Forget Who You Are, DMO – Prayer | Chill Hip-Hop

Posted by on June 7, 2011

Well I know what I’ll be listening to on the beach tomorrow (all of our Dewey Beach fans stand up). New Linen’s latest work is arguable their best. I can definitely dig their vibe, the beat matched by the smooth guitar chords works perfectly with their verses.

The second featured artist, DMO, is an up and comer hailing from San Diego, Ca. His fresh flow and solid production piqued my ear, I’ll be following him in the future to see how he moves up from his solid foundation. For more information, check out DMO’s Facebook page.

When the original “Cat Daddy” dropped, I thought the beat was sick, but the Rej3ctz flow was mediocre. Audio Push hopped on the remix and came out with a dirrty flow. 4/5
