Hip-Hop | CHILL RAP | Mac Miller, Webby (gasp!) and The Higher Concept

Posted by on January 14, 2011

According to Mac Millers twitter (and his comment before his verse), he basically landed in CA and immediately recorded this track yesterday with Juicy J. Kid is straight up killing it. I feel badly for Webby, he’s the only rapper from this original circle who really hasn’t made it, weird. I guess I’ll throw him a bone and post the Starry Eyed remix off his recent mixtape haha. Lastly, I’ve included a new joint from The Higher Concept. The initial verse is a little awkward, but the hook made up for it and carried my ears through. Definitely keeping this one on the pod (check out their other FNT mentions here)

My music library is littered with Starry Eyed remixes but not one of them combines an indie electro feel with rap like the Theophilus London version. Although this is the only track from his recent mixtape which piqued my interest, some of his other tracks have been receiving a lot of blog love so consider checking some of his other work out here.
MUST DOWNLOAD: Theophilus London – Starry Eyed (Remix)

I’m a huge fan of techno remixes to classic songs so needless to say I immediately fell in love with this trance re-do of “Summer Jam”.
Must Download: Underdog Project vs. Adam K & Soha – The Waters of Summer (Lex Mazzini Bootleg Remix)

Filthy progressive trance track that sports some ill tranquil vocals.
Download: Kaskade & EDX ft. Haley – Don’t Stop Dancing

Jump Smokers have been producing some nasty remixes to popular radio hits. The Obsessed remix I posted about a week back was well received so I’d expect at least the first two jams posted below will also be big FNT hits.
