Motherfuckin rawness. Be real with Vancouver & 1080p rapper Young Braised as he rips around on his Segway over a Porch, only to later have in commandeered by a gentleman better age suited to cruise on one. Much respect for being a safe helmet wearing, speed limit abiding samaritan dawg. Dawg.
Comparing ‘Wicked’ from NYC based P3CULIAR to the artist sounds of the early thousands artists Ladytron, Yelle and lo-fi-fnk all come to mind. A more grown, even co-ordinated precense is felt compared to the second and third names mentioned. Large synth waves are the common ground. The “Role-Play” album released by Casete Records in Latin America & Europe, and Kin Kon Records in the US contains traces of New Disco, Electro, House & Moombahton. A lil something for many an Electronic lover.
One of the many admirable characteristics of A-Trak is his listing all producers in the immediate credits of any given trak. Case in point, EP1 from his collaborative project with Hip Hop / Rap all star producer Lex Luger. As well as listing a good half of Raps comes ups on the features, what looks to be ALL the producers are there. Looking at you Diplo, are the rumors true? With EP1 out to the world for free download there is now room for Cam’ron & A-Tracks ‘Federal Reserve’ EP to hit. #FoolsGoldOnPoint

Not only is today the tenth birthday of Facebook, but this day also marks the 24th release from King Deluxe Records. London’s Segilola has moved to push the new EP ‘Somewhere Along The Line’ with her video to the title Bambooman produced track, an uncommonly non digitally animated King Deluxe video. Direction from silent tapes made the video wonderfully soft and fluid, to both the vocals and production.
The Chainsmokers are tearing 2k14 a new one in a big way. It’s like that side butthole American Apparel ad, except with Dim Mak and better looking. This is their FIRST Original production believe it or not. Grab up a copy HERE. The guys were good enough to include a few facts about the making of the video:
1) Every time we asked someone special for a #SELFIE they said yes, but then said they would send us one later like it was some chore, when all they had to do was turn their phone around on the device they were texting us from….
2) About 15% of the submissions we got from ppl involved Nudity
3) About 5% involved animals
4) #Selfie was named word of the year in the USA and The Netherlands…
5) Drew’s loves describing the taste of water in different cities.
6) Shower Pressure is very important to Alex
Neak is a Chicago rapper, not to be confused with LVL rapper Neako. Neak’s 5th project ‘XIII’ is to serve as a precursor for his album ‘Paura/Amore’ due out in the Spring of this year. It’s crazy to think a full album is a precursor. The concept leads me to believe Neak is on somewhat of a prolific tip. ‘XIII’ being seventeen tracks in length holds so many genres, all put on quite fluidly by Neak. I went in expecting lot’s of new Trap (which there is some of), but when early 90’s esq. sample beats were followed by Latin Jazz type’s like A.M.N.R. I was sold on his versatility. Hip Hop heads will be pleasantly surprised in the variety offered with this album.
‘XIII’ saw it’s own release party on the 24 of Jan. Peep game the video for the amount of live instruments present.
Philippine producer CONCLΔVE shares his newest video for ‘Ocean Star’ . The track is to be included in his forthcoming ‘CONCLΔVE LP’ under ‘Phantasma Disques‘ , Due February 28th, 2014. There will be feature seven more original productions with two accompanying remixes. Hopefully we can expect the project to be a full body not unlike ‘Ocean Star’ .
In the fifth edition The Freshest members took to a 24 spliced edit. Their live sets, continue to draw mass appeal as the live Rap / Hip Hop & R&B continue’s to be flawlessly remixed and re-imagined. 5.0 saw it’s release through Okay Future along with an interview.
Little to no words were included with this submission. Just the important ones. Teemong is an Amsterdam-based Hip Hop / Electro producer and music video director. ‘Reminisce’ is his latest single and ode to the 80’s. Stallone, Van Dam and familiar rap quotes are in plentiful supply.
Consistently churning out some of the best quality music videos this year has been King Deluxe. They’ve even been awarded staff picks on Vimeo. The video was released along side DELUXE022 aka Julien Mier’s ‘When Will They Wake Up’ , which is available for purchase HERE. The remixes following ‘Super Tronic Tramp’ on the release come from a range of Canadian artists, King Deluxe rosterfolk and affiliates.
Today, Toronto Hip Hop duo comprised of voclist Arowbe & producer Alexander The release their ‘Vehicle’ LP together as Times Neue Roman. The album features a slew of Toronto affiliates and friends. All ten tracks collectively may be best described as a modern equivalent of the 90’s nostalgia that so many music heads seek. The pair we good enough to supply bonus track ‘Sade Is In My Tape Deck Part 3′ featuring Rich Kidd, Shaun Booth, & Zaki Ibrahim as a stream & free download (below).
On a scandalous side note Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has become an internet sensation as of late. A Canadian one at least. It turns out doing Crack Cocaine while in public office is a big time NO NO. Times Neue Roman, Toronto Rap duo were early in calling this politicians dirtiness in with their ‘Late Night Toronto’ .
Statement from Arowbe aka Rob Bolton of Times Neue Roman:
“We shot the video in Summer of 2012 and put it out about one year ago. We had created these four masks, each of them with Mayor Ford making a different facial expression.The concept of the video was just to use these masks of our mayor as a vehicle to explore Toronto after hours life. We passed them around to people at several parties and just documented their actions.The video became this weird narrative of a night on the town, where indeed our character partakes in some illegal narcotics and other activities while in his “drunken stupor.” At the time, we thought we were sort of taking the piss in a pretty light-hearted way. And then this very troubling scandal started to unfold that the video was very predictive of.”
