GIRLS @ Ft. Chance the Rapper

Happy Monday ninjas! We’re sure many of you are still trying to get yourselves in gear for the start of a new week, but allow us to expedite that process for you with Joey Purp’s latest, “Girls @” which features the oh so familiar vocals of Chance The Rapper.

Before we dive into the nitty gritty of the tracks awesomeness, we must forewarn you that this one deserves some quality sound system love. But regardless of how good the speakers, “Girls @” is unarguably going to get your body grooving and your blood pumping.

Fostering an undeniably irresistible beat that seamlessly molds around the flow of Joey and Chances’ lyrics, this release is going to become your go-to “get into the party mood” jam. You’ll also probably find that “Girls @” is going to be your latest song addiction. In other words, it’s the track that is going to be put on repeat for 2 weeks straight while you insist that the driver must forfeit the aux cord for you because it is just that damn good.

Mix Fox – How We Roll Music Video [TMN Premiere]

MixFox_PP2

On June 22nd, XXL magazine will be issuing a Freshman edition that is going to highlight some up and coming talent. One of those emcees that will be featured is Mix Fox. We have the pleasure of hosting Mix Fox’s newest project, an official music video for his single “How We Roll,” as a premiere in the dojo.

“How We Roll” has been released by Soundlink Records and is currently available on iTunes. With the song we get a shaded, minimalist beat whose vibe sets the tone for a low-key party track. Nothing is over-the-top with this tasteful instrumental, and Mix Fox’s rhymes are fast and ferocious. With the music video, instead of getting a first-person point of view, we follow the front of Mix Fox as he performs the song throughout a house party. It’s an interesting flip that makes for a cool visual counterpart. There’s also a guy in a banana costume following the rapper around with a boombox, so you know it’s good. Check it out below, and get ready for more work soon from Mix Fox.

[Giveaway] Adam Vida, Mikos Da Gawd & More @ The Independent, SF 5/13

’Adam Vida – Tomorrow Land (Prod. Mikos Da Gawd)’
’Adam Vida – Sifu (Prod. Mikos Da Gawd, Mr. Carmack and Woostaar)’

Combining agile flows, refreshing lyricism and Bay Area flavor, emcee A-1 has built a career out of ingenuity. Recently, the San Francisco native announced that he’d be leaving the A-1 project behind in favor of Adam Vida, representing a new, “more worldly” chapter in his artistic journey. Based on the releases thus far, which you can peep above, Vida certainly takes a step forward but one that fans of his early work will most certainly appreciate. Building off Thurlian, his final project as A-1, Vida’s style finds a balance between clever, comedic bars and laser-focused commentary. With producers like Mikos da Gawd, WooStar and Mr. Carmack laying down the backdrop for his message of positivity, the sky is the limit for Vida.

With that in mind, we couldn’t be more excited to be giving away 2 tickets to his first ever headlining show under the new moniker. Enter below to win a pair of tickets to catch Vida along with Mikos Da Gawd, Richie Cunning and Dregs One at The Independent this Friday, May 13th. Tickets for the show are also still available here.

[Hip Hop] Azad Right – Enough Of You (Prod. By Sango, Atu & Dpat)

Azad Right
Enough Of You (Prod. By Sango, Atu & Dpat)

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard from LA-based Azad Right, but we’re not mad about it. Not one bit. He’s had his hands full with a few of our favorite artists, as he helps pave the way for one of the most impressive record labels in the game, Mind of a Genius. And, for that, we’re extremely grateful.

However, we won’t say that we haven’t missed his music because we most certainly have. Thankfully, he decided to step back into the vocal booth to not only drop some painfully honest bars, but to also lay down some back-up vocals as well. “Enough of You” brings a familiarity that we’ve come to know and love over the years, showcasing a dark and ominous soundscape and a lyrical window into Azad’s soul. It’s real. It’s raw. It’s what you can expect from him, time and time again.

You fucked the kid that introduced us
And he was best friends with your ex, that shit is fucked up
He said you was wack in the bed, it might be fucked up
But that’s how I knew he wasn’t lying…

Produced by Sango, Atu & Dpat, this tune is sure to delight fans who have been patiently waiting for Azad to release some more music. Hopefully, he’ll step away from the helm at M.O.A.G a little more frequently to hook us all up with something fresh.

Saturday Selection Vol. 4

Pat Lok – You Street

Pat Lok straight up rocks. He’s been an ace producer of infectious house tunes for a while now, and his collection of remixes speaks volumes with its success so far. The latest tune he’s dropped on us is a funky original, teeming with smooth synths and rocking percussion that could easily become a staple in your poolside playlist during the months ahead. There’s no shortage of grooving with Pat Lok, and “You Street” is a great example of that.

Klangstof – Island

It’s a moot point by now, but Mind of a Genius continues to push some of the best music. Their most recent signing, Klangstof, has finally followed up their debut tune with the ethereal beauty of “Island.” Something about this group is inherently magical, and their tunes help you to escape to a better place. The entire six and a half minutes of this song is absolutely immersive and spectacular. Don’t miss out their other recent release, “Amansworld,” either.

Kultur – White Door (Ft. Khary)

Shifting from his normal ambience, Kultur delivers a slick hip-hop tune featuring vocals from Khary. Hopefully there’s more of this in store from Kultur, because it works for him. Whether you’re entirely familiar with his normal material or not, “White Door” already is a standout for the French producer. He prides himself on mainly emotional pieces of work, but this new tune just feels fun and is an intriguing switch-up. It’s no secret that there’s a large amount of talented producers hailing from France, and Kultur is upholding his end of the deal big time.

Elohim – Sensations

Every new Elohim tune gets us more and more excited for her debut EP due out on May 20th. Even with an abundance of synth-pop artists out there, Elohim has continued to make her mark over the last year with stunning songs and an alluring, mysterious presence. “Sensations” feels more jubilant than most of her previous tunes, and it’s easy to see how she has been able to garner her popularity with ditties like this. She’s captivating, and we’re fidgeting in our seats just thinking about her debut project on the way.

pools – summer sunday (sisasa remix)

SISASA is in no hurry to be anywhere based on the relaxing tunes we’ve heard. Each of the three songs released so far is wrapped in a tranquil and simple atmosphere, and, somehow, SISASA has managed to transform pools into an an even more serene invention. Complexity and technicality is always appreciated, but constructing a minimal melody and altering a sample in such a way that SISASA has takes a specific and careful type of production that can easily be disregarded. This works though. And it works well. End your day right with this one.
