Raz Simone right now is one of my favorite up and coming rappers, and is getting closer and closer to super stardom if you ask me, all he needs is that one hit to take him there, but “So Far, So Far,” off his Cognitive Dissonance project, def gets him closer to that status. Released with the announcement of his upcoming 52 city tour, along Strange Music’s Rittz, and Taylor Gang’s Tuki Carter. I like Raz cause he has that gangster flow, and yet keeps it soulful, and earthy, on that real no gimmicks ish. This is a must listen!

Last week I introduced ya’ll to Raz Simone, the MC from Seattle who signed to 300, a new label headed by Lyor Cohen, and backed by Google, with his track “Sometimes I Don’t” featuring Sam Lachow. This week his management hit me with his latest single “Don’t Shine,”  off his upcoming album Cognitive Dissonance: Part One, where Raz spits on his environment and where he grew up, and just like its title, it’s not bright. One thing’s for certain, if Raz keeps it up, his future will be. I’m all about real hip hop, and rap records with substance, and musicality, Raz’s talent embodies all of that. This is a must listen and a must download!

Albums, Electro, House | Wolfgang Gartner – Weekend in America (album review)

Posted by on September 21, 2011

Wolfgang Gartner’s first album dropped yesterday, and let me begin by saying: it does not disappoint. In fact, it’s pretty crazy. It goes hard, he keeps it interesting and creative by incorporating a lot of variety, and virtually every track is high energy in its own right. He manages to bring together catchy, progressive house melodies with glitchy, dynamic, and always heavy beats, for an overall sound that’s somewhere between Skrillex and Swedish House Mafia. While the blockbuster tracks have been out for a while — Space Junk; Illmerica — it’s still undoubtedly worth the download. Basically, this is the kind of thing you want to be dancing your face off to in a dark basement.

There are two different versions available — the “bonus track” version on iTunes, which, as the name suggests, features the bonus track Cognitive Dissonance (which dropped on Hot Topic’s website last week, of all places….rogue), and the extended version which can be found on Beatport. Anyone who really appreciates the unique sound that Wolfgang brings to his tracks will undoubtedly be best served by the longer mixes available for DL on Beatport, so take my advice and hit up the link below.
