this song is great. for more murlo, click here.
late pass, but i finally got around to watching/listening to alunageorge’s new video/track “your drums, your love.” and yeah, those drums. one thought from the video is that these two, and specifically leggy, gorgeous aluna, are gonna blow up. which makes me feel bad for george cause he is just some pasty looking white dude and have you seen aluna? great producer though. between this, and their previous ep, it’s pretty apparent. the single drops on 10/15, and features remixes from deebs and lil silva.
this remix is crazy. crrraaaaaazzzyy. download here.
top dawg entertainment dropped new tracks from LA’s black hippy crew over the past week as part of #TDEFamAppreciationWeek. consider us gratified. all these tracks are pretty great, but the kendrick lamar cut really takes the cake.
kendrick lamar, ft. young jeezy – “westside, right on time”
schoolboy q – “party”
ab-soul – “nibiru”
jay rock – “YOLA”
it’s been a minute since i just posted some random jams i’m feeling. here goes:
armeria – “while i’ve got it together” (download)
jeremih (ft. marcus french) – “keep it movin” (download the mixtape)
two inch punch – “rooster in my rari (caught in a lovetrap rework)”
chrome sparks – “marijuna” (download)
i didn’t think it would be this seamless to add some dreamy female vocals to a song as stabby as rustie’s “after light,” but holy shit does this work. thank you aluna francis.
i’m a noted LV fan, so it’s no surprise that i’m posting their new video for “sebenze” (which means “work” in zulu), a track featuring previous collaborator okmalumkoolkat (this remix of that track is well-worth checking out as well). there are many things to like about this video: that beat, those jackets and hats and shades, johannesburg, that dude’s grill, the crazy donuts at the end, the FUCKTHERICH vanity plate.
i’m also psyched to hear that LV has an ep out in july, and an album coming in august that will also feature spoek mathambo.
fantastic mr fox is one of those artists i have a hard time describing to people: producer/dj out of (where else) england who makes some variation of electronic music. i did just read, however, that he himself describes his work as “reluctant dance music,” which is apt, especially to describe FMF’s new ep san’en. i’ve been listening to “pascal’s chorus” several times a day since it dropped last week. another standout–“speak nuh”–only confirms the subdued grooves FMF lays down.
stream “pascal’s chorus” below, and check out a recent XLR8R mix FMF made that sprinkles a few cuts off san’en throughout.
