Chill, Trap | Just A Gent & Kasbo – Sovereign Ft. Jon

Posted by on November 24, 2013

Just A Gent & Kasbo - Sovereign Ft. JonSometimes you click play on a song and it seems simple enough, but you rather enjoy it. You then give it a couple more seconds of play and all of a sudden your eyes swell up and it turns out to be one of the most emotional songs you have heard in a long time on just the instrumentals alone. Just A Gent & Kasbo have provided that emotion for me with this incredible track, and I think anyone else that listens will receive, if not the same, similar feelings.

Mashups, RnB | Drake & Keke Wyatt Ft. Avant – Nothing In This World (Tajan Mashup)

Everything Tajan makes is pure sex to the ears in my opinion, and he violates our ears once again with this hot R&B mashup. I’m sure Drake’s name is the eye catcher on this one, but don’t expect to hear him. Keke Wyatt and Avant’s vocals make this track, there is so much emotion to be felt from them as they belt out their undeniable love for eachother that you won’t even miss Drake.

Albums, Bass, Electronic | Run DMT – Starlight Ft. Betty Black : The Remixes

Posted by on October 17, 2013

This remix EP showcases four dimensions of an extremely powerful song. The original by RUN DMT is deep and heavy, beautifully coordinating Betty Black’s spectral vocals with big driving bass, distant guitar chords and awesome synth plucks. The Kodak To Graph remix is a chilled out and trapped up version that adds sounds reminiscent of Phonat’s style – very cool. Now to the hard hitters. The Dirt Monkey remix is loud and angry. It adds huge, harsh sounds that create an edgy, rough feel while still maintaining some of that juicy emotion from the original. Now, for the remix that, for the time being, comes out ahead as my favourite on the EP. The SPL version starts out with an ambient intro, introducing wicked saxophone sounds. The vocals are whispered into focus and the energy is built up to the mad drum and bass segment that is bursting with energy.  The vocal verse is introduced at the perfect moment in this segment, and is used to carry you through to the next drop which takes on another beat entirely. The remix is epic, really a blast to listen to, and the whole EP is a treat. Literally a treat, as in all of the four massive songs are free to download.

Hip-Hop, Rap | OnCue – Way Too Far

Posted by on October 12, 2013

oncue way too far

With Angry Young Man in its imminence, OnCue continues to build the hype surrounding it with yet another single. “Way Too Far” is a ballad of Cuey’s endless work and the significant impacts that it’s been having on his life. The song certainly encapsulates the spirit of an angry young man, as each line is spit with an unmatched conviction and emotion.

OnCue has yet to give us a set release date for his forthcoming project, however, it was said to be released sometime this month. Whether that release date is abided by or we have to hold off a little longer, I’m sure I speak for many when I say that AYM will be worth the wait.

Enjoy the incredibly well produced “Way Too Far” and grab the free download courtesy of OnCue’s SoundCloud.

Guys, you know how sometimes things go terribly wrong and you end up having to wipe the back of the toilet and/or think about changing your pants but it was clear af like it always is cause you mostly drink water so you don’t have to? Well guess what happened to me a couple minutes ago… I remembered how my gym teacher in the tenth grade said that she liked my hair and I just now realized that she was flirting with me. I’m sure that it’s not even a question as to whether or not she is still into me because I mean why wouldn’t she be. Chicago native Topher Jones is clearly still into Paramore’s “Still Into You”, seeing as how he remixed it a couple days ago and is giving it away for free. Honestly, the production quality of this track isn’t very high. The melody is catchy though and the drop is nice (and obviously the vocals are too), so it makes the cut. Cut is the better option and so is chewing gum loudly with your mouth open right next to me.

 

Chill | JMSN – Walk Away

Posted by on September 18, 2013

“Walk Away” by JMSN is an absolute beauty. This track is packed with emotion. The vocals flow smoothly over the breathtaking strings. My favorite part is when the drums really kick in around three minutes in. To say this track is powerful is an understatement. It will be a part of the album ‘†Pllaj醒 (which honestly I have no idea how to say) that is written and produced solely by JMSN.
