[Chill] GoldLink – When I Die (Alex Young + Jonah Baseball Version)

When I Die (Alex Young + Jonah Baseball Version)

GoldLink is the fastest rising rapper of 2014, period. Since The God Complex dropped in April, the DMV-raised hip hop artist has been all across the country playing shows and festivals, teaming up with the Soulection collective, and more. He has already collaborated with Lakim and Sango so he is no stranger at all to futuristic garage productions, but Alex Young and Jonah Baseball decided to take it one step further and bring the vibes to the McCallaman production of “When I Die.” It’s got an infectious energy to it that even non-hip-hop heads can appreciate. Alex Young is already quite established as a producer, however I urge you to definitely take Jonah Baseball’s catalogue for a spin if you aren’t familiar. And if you want to hear more from GoldLink, you can download his massively successful debut tape The God Complex here!

Jack Garratt – Remnants (Goldfish Remix) [TMN PREMIERE]

Goldfish Background for track

You feel that, ninjas? That undeniable feeling like greatness is peeking its head around the corner? You know what that is? It’s pre-Friday. We’re one day away from a glorious two-day stretch that we’ve all been thinking about since Monday morning. As you carefully calculate your plans for your upcoming adventures, throw this sexy little number on.

Coming out of Denmark, Goldfish (Bastian Langebaek) has put a new break-beat twist on Jack Garratt’s “Remnants.” The title track off of Garratt’s debut EP boasted a gritty and ominous feel, which provided an industrial backdrop for those unforgettable vocals. Goldfish has stepped in and flipped the track upside down, harnessing similar techniques used in their first working project, “Worry.” After co-writing and co-producing that smash single, it was only natural to see an impressive final product on this remixer’s take.

Utilizing some of those darker, minimalist elements creates a delicate contrast with the added smooth bassline, providing a delectable R&B feel that’s perfect for your warm-weather festivities this weekend. Press play, and get on with planning something epic.

[Alternative R&B] Doja Cat – No Police (Prod. Dream Koala)

Purrr! - EP
DOJA CAT
No Police (prod. Dream Koala)

LA singer Doja Cat just released her new EP titled Purrr!, a selection of alternative R&B tracks sampling dope beats from local DJs/producers. Among them we have “No Police”, a spicy tune sampling over Dream Koala‘s “We Can’t Be Friends.” The beat is so smooth, dreamy and chilled-out that you will probably get caught in the midst of daydreaming to it. Doja Cat’s half-rapping, half-singing technique and the electric guitar riff further add on to the R&B style of the song, turning it into something so hip and creative.

Another well-known hip-hop take on this sample is “Thim Slick” by Fabolous featuring Jeremih. Yet Doja Cat’s version of the song is much more laid back and slowed down. You just can’t help but sway your body side by side to this beat. With producers Evil Needle, Dream Koala and Iman Omari featured on her EP, Doja Cat is definitely an artist to watch out for.

Outside Lands 2014: 10 Acts to See Before 3PM [Event Preview + Playlist]

2014m-lg

With the inevitable shenanigans that occur during preparation, it can be difficult to get to a music festival in a timely manner. As a result, its fairly common for festival-goers to miss out on acts that play early in the day. While headliners rarely disappoint, there’s something incredible about discovering an artist for the very first time during a live performance–a mutually beneficial exchange between artist and fan. The first few hours of a lineup provide ample opportunity to do so without compromise often producing some of the most energetic shows of an event.

Outside Lands is coming up on Friday, and we’ve decided to do our best to compel all our ninjas to make it to Golden Gate Park early this weekend by highlighting 10 acts worth seeing before 3PM. In creating the list, we found that there is certainly no shortage of artists, both established and up & coming, that we’re excited for during the first few hours of each day. If you can’t make it in early, don’t sweat, because at least a few of these bands will be headlining festivals themselves soon enough. Check out the playlist below and we hope to see some of you at OSL this weekend!

Day 1 (08/08):

Night Terrors of 1927 (Noon, Panhandle Stage)

Sounds like: Brooding, dark pop bringing together powerful emotions on either end of the spectrum.

Chance The Rapper & The Social Experiment
Wonderful Everyday: Arthur

Chance The Rapper nearly broke the internet when he covered the Arthur theme song for the first time live at Sasquatch! Music Festival, putting a unique spin on the classic children’s tune. Now, as he prepares to take the stage at Lollapalooza this weekend, Chance has decided to reveal a far more polished version of the track that he’s been performing for a few months now. Although part of the hype around the release is fueled by nostalgia, Chance’s rendition is a beautiful song in its own right. Contrary to what his name may imply, the Chicago native has proven he’s more than just a rapper over his last few releases. Teaming up with an extremely talented cast that includes Wyclef Jean, Jessie Ware, Elle Varner and more, Chance and crew craft a wonderful ballad that’s guaranteed to have you smiling ear to ear by song’s end.

Listen to the single above, and make sure to check out Chance’s set on Sunday either live or via stream at the official Lollapalooza website.

[Get Crunk] Friday Party Playlist (Vol. 114)

fpp

It’s Fridayyyy so say heyyyy to the weekend! After a crazy week of working, petting cats, and anxiously counting down the seconds to today, one could say we have been biting at the bit to get you all another playlist of party poppin’ bangers. This week we have yet another intense stack of mind blowing (literally speaking) tracks to help pump you up for a rage-tastic next couple of days.

I’ve been trying to do a better job at incorporating all different types of party music in each weeks FPP whether it be some twerk-worthy trap, dirty wub wub dubstep, groovy deep house, or some amplifying electro house – I AM DOING MY BEST OVER HERE. It’s my job to give you music to brag to your friends about because knowing music before everyone else makes you appear cooler than the rest. Totally kidding on that part – you’re worth far more than the bangers provided to you every Friday afternoon. Go grab a bottle, fill up those cups, press play, and TURN THE BLEEP UP.

Until next week, ninjas. #danceirresponsibly
