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 | 1,699 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 …

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 …

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, …

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, …

Daniel.T.
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 …

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 …

Tame Impala – “Let It Happen”
It seems hard to believe, but it’s been nearly three years since Tame Impala’s last studio album — “Lonerism” — came out.
Not that Kevin Parker has been sitting idly by in that time; between touring (and releasing the excellent Live Versions album last year (“Be Above It”  from that album is EPIC!), producing and collaborating on releases by Melody’s …

Dolly Parton – “Jolene” (Todd Terje Remix)
Can Todd Terje do any wrong?
That’s rhetorical question because we all know the answer is NO!!!
The big Norwegian has been quiet on the edit front in the last couple of years, but came back recently with a new edit of Dolly Parton’s classic, “Jolene”.

Todd Terje gives the country diva a balearic disco rubdown on the edit. Nothing too …
