Janet Jackson “JJ01 (MANIK Summer Refix)”
With an upcoming tour and an album in the works, the Summer of Janet is fast approaching.
In celebration of this fact (or maybe just coincidentally), LA-based producer MANIK has released the first of four edits of Ms. Jackson.

MANIK gives Janet Jackson’s 1986 classic, “What Have You Done For Me Lately” a DJ-friendly disco house edit, perfect for the summer …

Friday Free For All: Chance The Rapper + Alo Wala

Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment – Surf
Okay, so the headline to this post is slightly misleading; Surf isn’t technically a Chance The Rapper album, though he does feature prominently on the release in his role as vocalist and arranger.
Instead, what we get is a highly anticipated album led by Chance’s friend and frequent collaborator, Donnie Trumpet, which has been rumored to be on …

Tish Hyman: Artist You Should Know

Posted May 15, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 2,026 views]

Last week I was poking around and hit on this video for Tish Hyman’s “Subway Art”.
I was floored.
Even if you didn’t speak English, you could feel what “Subway Art” was about. The pain and vulnerability in her delivery bleed through every note of the song.

Her talent as a rapper and singer are undeniable, then add the fact that there’s a real message in what …

Friday Free For All: Major Lazer, The Drums x RAC, & Duke Dumont

Major Lazer – “Lean On” [Remixes]
You can always count on Major Lazer to come through with at least a couple of incredible summery, sun-kissed singles on every album.
On their first album, “Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do“, it was “Keep It Goin’ Louder” and “Can’t Stop Now” (you could also make a strong argument for “Pon De Floor” and you wouldn’t be wrong).
2013′s “Free The …

Friday Free For All: Towkio + Jubilee’s Miami Bass Compilation

Posted May 1, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 2,097 views]

Towkio – .WAV Theory
Chicago’s SAVEMONEY crew has been making some serious noise in the past couple of years.
Led by Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, SAVEMONEY are a hip hop crew at their core, but what makes them so special as a collective is their willingness to constantly reach outside that box.
Whether it’s the more traditional elements of hip hop like funk, soul, disco, …

Friday Free for All: Oddience, Misun, The Derevolutions, Chromatics

Posted April 24, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 2,688 views]

I can’t remember ever being more excited about the slate of upcoming releases than I am right now.
The next couple of months hold the promise of new albums from Hot Chip, Shamir, Mbongwana Star, HNNY, Jamie xx, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Major Lazer, De Lux, Kanye West (possibly), Chromatics (hopefully), Tanlines, and Hudson Mohawke.
Even if only half of these releases hit the mark, 2015 is …

Coachella 2015 Weekend 1 Highlights From DJ Travis Holcombe

Azelia Banks by Ethan Shvartzman

For all the talk of Coachella being an over-hyped, overly saturated haven for bros, douchebags, and basic bitches, it’s still undoubtedly one of the best music festivals in the world and a great way to see an incredible line-up of artists (usually bringing their A-games) in a short amount of time.
Doing a radio show from 10 to midnight Monday through Friday has its perks, …

Friday Free For All: Daniel T, ILoveMakonnen, Marvin Gaye Remixed

Posted April 3, 2015 by | 1 Comment | 2,268 views]

LA’s Daniel.T. continues to impress in 2015.
We’ve covered some of Mr. T’s solo work (he’s also one half of Cosmic Kids) in this space before, but his most recent work might be his best yet.


In addition to his fantastic production work, Daniel.T.’s Chit Chat Records imprint has also put out an excellent 12″ of Brazilian Disco edits that I highly recommend. It features work …

Friday Free for All: Kendrick Lamar & Kenny Loggins remixes + Derevolutions

Posted March 27, 2015 by | 0 Comments | 2,447 views]

Kendrick Lamar Remixes
No matter what else happens in 2015, Kendrick Lamar‘s latest album, “To Pimp A Butterfly“, has cemented its place on my end-of-year top 10 list.
It’s an record so weighty and complex in its ambition and execution that it makes most other albums released this year look D-League in comparison.
That’s on one level.
On another level, it’s also just a really fun album to …
