Hip-Hop, Indie | Aer – Strangers [Free EP]

I feel guilty for sitting on this for the past week without posting.  I’m sure the loyal Fresh Aer breathers have already inhaled this free EP, but for those who haven’t, I highly suggest taking a long deep breath and listening through.

With summer around the corner (hopefully) for us Northerners, Aer decides it’s only right to share some freebies with their fans to honor their continued loyalty.  Although these may only be low tide tracks in comparison to what they’re going to hit us with this summer, I’ve looped this in full at least once daily since it dropped.  Fire.  With features from Mod Sun & Guy Harrison and production from Ratatat, Pete Rock, mattMIGGZ, and of course instrumental work by David and Carter themselves, you’d be foolish to pass on this.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Kid Daytona f. Melanie Fiona – Love Is Love

Posted by on December 13, 2011

Kid Daytona recruits R&B singer Melanie Fiona to supply the hook for his latest leak off his upcoming project Interlude II. Love Is Love is chill hip hop song with an extremely smooth hook. The Interlude II drops next Monday (12/19).

For those of you who haven’t heard of Kid Daytona yet he’s from The Bronx and has dropped three projects in his short career. Never settling for just good enough, 2010 saw The Kid Daytona align his potential with the cutting edge fashions of the popular clothing company L-R-G. No bigger payoff came as they collaborated on Daytona’s best release to date, “The Interlude LP.” As a disciple of Hip-Hop’s rich and sacred culture, Daytona felt like it was time to give fans hungry for more beef than broth “a break from what had become the norm.” Taking subtle interludes from storied albums from the likes of Kanye West, Pete Rock, A Tribe Called Quest and Dr. Dre. Download his previous project, The Interlude.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Aziz- Ode To Pete Rock

Posted by on August 5, 2011

I remember the first time I listened to Aziz. He was part of a group at the time, and he was featured on as song called, “Tic, Tac, Toe”. The song quickly became a guilty pleasure of mine. He doesn’t know this, but even today I’ll catch myself reciting his verse like a wanna-be-rapper in my car. Yes, I am a professional in car rapper. No, I don’t care what you think. Yes I’m feeling myself too much right now, pause.

Anyways, here is Aziz’s third single and second music video titled “Ode to Pete Rock” off of his new mixtape “Daydreams of a Spaceshot” which will release on Tuesday, August 23rd. The single is an instrumental that was originally produced by DJ Premier for Das EFX’s track “Real Hip Hop” that Pete Rock later remixed in the mid 1990s. The video for “Ode to Pete Rock” was Directed Calvin Scibilia and shot in New York City and New Jersey.

As always, follow Aziz on Twitter and Facebook. Special shout out to Maxwell Zotz, who’s behind the scenes of Aziz’s operation, and makes things happen on a daily basis.
