[Gotta Be] Fresh Coat Mural Festival – LA Arts District – 10/7

We’re gearing up for another trip out to LA. This time, we’ll be hitting up the inagural Fresh Coat Mural Festival, which is hitting the streets of DTLA on October 7th. A beautiful blend of art, music, food, and drinks, this brand spankin’ new block party has something for just about everyone.

Legendary local and national street artists Drew Merritt, Breeze, Vyal, It’s a living, Axis, Carley Ealey, Andrew Hem, and OG Slick will be taking over walls in the Arts District, serving up incredible, live street art for everyone who comes down. On top of that, there are local, curated food trucks from LA dishing out tasty bites, alongside of brews from Angel City Brewing and hand-crafted cocktails featuring Hansen’s Soda.

As if that wasn’t reason enough for you to head down, there’s also a top-notch musical lineup. The day kicks off with old school, hip-hop icons, The Beat Junkies, followed by Peanut Butter Wolf and The Hood Internet. Rounding out the bill are a handful of TMN favorites. Viceroy, who was one of our Resident Artists here at TMN, and the ever-so-chill Poolside. The cherry on top? RJD2 will be closing out the night. We’ve admittedly never seen him live, so you’ll find us front and center as soon as he takes the decks.

The best thing about this fest? It’s free. That’s right. The organizers, The Container Yard and Hansen’s Soda have you covered. All you have to do is RSVP and you’re good to go.

Hoody Time – KNOCK [TMN Premiere]

Hoody Time
KNOCK

The New Zealand resident hip-hop head Hoody Time is back in the dojo. To kick off the end of the week we’re presenting his newest single “KNOCK” in this premiere. Not only do we have that, but we have a little bonus content for you from camp Hoody Time.

“KNOCK” is a fun track even by Hoody Time standards. He always cooks up off-the-wall tracks that are lively and exciting, but here he gets a bit “goofy” as he states in his own words. The track was produced by Public, aka Justin Manas the former drummer of Stray From The Path. Hoody Time is always a good time, as you’ll see from “KNOCK” as well as the music video for his single “Backpack.” Take some time to experience each and stay tuned for more from Hoody Time!

[Music Video] LEViT∆TE & Macntaj – Pins & Needles

“Pins & Needles” takes from LEViT∆TE & Macntaj takes us one step closer to the treasure. What is the treasure you might ask? It’s LEViT∆TE & Macntaj’s highly anticipated EP, Omni. As a visionary producer, LEViT∆TE will blow people away with this project and he’s already got started.

With now hearing the second single from the EP, we’re getting an idea of where things are going for this and we’re excited. “Pins & Needles” is a smash, with a lovable abrasiveness to its style. Not only do we get to hear the track before the EP comes, but we’ve got a striking blood red music video to go along with. Together they pack a mean punch. Check out the video below and grab a copy of the single from digital stores today.

[Hip-Hop] Julia Lewis- On The Regular (W/ EluJay, Mr. Carmack, Mikos Da Gawd)

JULiA LEWiS
On The Regular (W/ Elujay, Mr. Carmack, Mikos Da Gawd)

“On The Regular” is the newest track from Bay area producer Julia Lewis who collaborated with producers Mr. Carmack and Mikos Da Gawd. EluJay, an Oakland rapper who, with his laid back style of lyricism, works perfectly with Lewis’ production. The beat itself will carry over any sound system with its pleasing island vibe which makes it the perfect track for the waning days of Summer. Make sure to get this one for that final Summer time pool party playlist before it gets too cold outside. If you enjoyed this track as much as I did you will be ecstatic to know that this is the first of a series of releases between Lewis and EluJay. They didn’t disappoint with this one so I will be patiently waiting for their other releases to come out.

[Music Video] Mistah F.A.B. – Champagne & Cookies

Back in May, the Bay Area legend Mistah F.A.B. released his album Stan Pablo: 4506. The last song on the LP, “Champagne & Cookies” has now, just a few months later, received a dope music video. Mistah F.A.B. keeps things simple and tasteful with this visual adaptation.

“Champagne & Cookies” as a track oozes the cool confidence that its creator exudes. It’s no doubt such a strong record comes from one of the most iconic figures in rap. In regards to the video, it follows Mistah F.A.B. through several scenes, including one with a cameo from the one and only Sway. Give the video a peep and make sure to grab the album from iTunes if you have not yet.
