Hip-Hop | Maxxx Flair — New York City Raised Me

Posted by on March 4, 2013


It’s no surprise that the majority of present-day emcees have begun veering towards the strategy of “quantity” as a means of getting noticed. They release new projects at an expeditious rate, more concerned with their name remaining in the headlines then they are with producing work of the highest quality. Rarely do I find an artist who is able to effectively bridge this as well as Yonkers-based emcee Maxxx Flair. Though he creates at a brisk pace, the sound is never compromised. Cue his new project, Wake Up, due this spring, and a new single that he’s sent our way, entitled “New York City Raised Me.” Back with frequent collaborator Snake-Eyes, a Brooklyn-based producer and engineer, we can expect the same level of prowess and lyrical ability on this new tape as we’ve become accustomed to from Maxxx, as is well evidenced by this old-school-style record. Check it out and get ready for Wake Up.

Posted by on February 1, 2011

When you hear Steve Angello you immediately think Swedish House Mafia…however, Steve Angello has been putting in some work on solo projects like this masterpiece, “Open Your Eyes.” Steve Angello brings his usual progressive housey vibe to this track which meshes well with Alex Metric’s older school style. The overall production is everything you’d expect from Angello, if you like house music, you need this track…expect hundreds of remixes to come.
