[Hip-Hop] Dag Savage – The Warning Tape

When Exile and Johaz first united as Dag Savage back in 2012, it was abundantly clear that they’d be a force to be reckoned with. While that promise didn’t exactly hold up in 2013 due to a lack of releases, it’s now become clear that’s only because the duo was entrenched in the studio perfecting their sound. With their new album, E&J, on the horizon, the California twosome are finally ready to properly unveil themselves to the world, dropping The Warning Tape this month to put the rest of the game on notice. Sporting features from a diverse group of artists that includes Blu, Co$$, ANTHM, Aloe Blacc and more, the 13-track effort explores a multitude of different sounds, putting to light the versatility of both Exile as a producer, and Johaz as an emcee. You can find a download link to the mixtape below, as well as a few of our favorite selections from the project. Dag Savage’s E&J is set to drop on Februrary 4th, and pre-orders can be found here

[Soul] Aloe Blacc – Love Is The Answer (Feat. Pharrell)

Aloe Blacc
Love Is The Answer (Feat. Pharrell)

Another single, another hit produced by Pharrell. Singer/Songwriter Aloe Blacc‘s track “Love Is The Answer’, off his Wake Me Up EP, dropped earlier this week. Blacc channels Stevie Wonder on this light-hearted, uplifting ballad. Pharrell has definitely been killing it this summer with new tunes, but this time he fades into the background and lets Blacc’s voice shine through. Bringing in some horns and strong vocals revolving around love, this catchy tune is a taste of the past brought into modern times. Mixing some 70’s goodness with an organic jazz beat, this throwback sound is available now on iTunes

With breakdowns creating space for finger licking piano solos, vintage mic effects on Aloe’s vocals adding that authentic feel and some clever inserts of classic soul samples – this remix adds so much to what was already a great song.

[AWESOME] Aloe Blacc – Billie Jean

Absolutely breathtaking. It is hard to pull off a creative rendition of a classic but Aloe Blacc, the man responsible for asking the world for a dollar, shows off his range as a gifted vocalist covering Michael Jackson famous ‘Billie Jean’. From the instrumentation playing in the background, to the the dramatic lighting, to his suave pose of singing while having his drink on his lap, this video is just amazing from all angles.
