Waldo and his AGO crew have been making waves on the hip-hop scene for the last year plus, and chances are they’re bound to blow up “Any Day Now” . Today, the Michigan native teams up with Tre Capital and Like (of Pac Div) to lay some fire over some incredible production from two other TMN favorites, Gravez and DrewsThatDude. The track was originally teased by Tre on Twitter last month, but it doesn’t seem to be slated to appear on any upcoming projects. Regardless, make sure to be on the lookout for both Waldo’s Summer Child EP and Tre Capital’s Gundam II, set to drop later this year.

High Rule – Enough [TMN PREMIERE]

ENOUGH12
High Rule
Enough

A lot can happen in a few months, and nobody understands that more than Chicago-based duo High Rule. In less than 60 days, this act has gone from releasing their debut song to peaking at #2 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50 Chart, showing the world that they’re ready to make a splash.

Following up on that debut release, “Enough,” is premiering here on TMN. Stylistically, it follows the intriguing nature that we quickly fell for, showcasing an ambiguous sound that flirts with multiple genres. Somewhere in between dance music, hip hop, and RnB, we’re left hitting the repeat button again and again, just like before.

“Enough” does change gears from their debut single though, which had us grinning with its entertaining lyrical nature. This release has a more somber message, which is rooted in something that everyone can identify with – the struggle of not being able to let go of someone who isn’t right for us.

U Mad feat. Kanye West

U Mad? Cam’ron would be very proud of this brand new cut starring Vic Mensa and Kanye West. Produced by Smoko Ono, this hard hitting number serves as a nice follow-up to Vic’s performance earlier today at Coachella. It’s a great look for the Chitown native who previously collaborated with Yeezy on his own single, “Wolves.” A few years ago it may have been difficult to imagine a pairing like this, but now it seems like this move could launch Vic further into stardom.

Expect this one to stay on the radio late into the summer. We look forward to seeing what else the emcee has in store for his upcoming EP Street Lights, dropping sometime this year.

SaveMoney’s Towkio continues to surprise us with amazing collaborations from his upcoming mixtape, .Wav Theory, this time teaming up with Chance The Rapper, Lido and  Eryn Allen Kane for a celebratory new cut called “Heaven Only Knows.” At first, “Heaven Only Knows” has a very similar soulful feel to many other SaveMoney releases from the past, but with Lido behind the boards, the track has just the added oomph to put it over the top. The vibrant tune is guaranteed to be a staple in our rotation long into the summer. .Wav Theory is due out later this month on April 28th, and features additional appearances from Vic Mensa, Kaytranada, Leather Corduroys and Donnie Trumpet.

[Event Preview] The Underground Music Showcase – 7/23-7/26 – Denver, CO

Theums2015

After the raucous and discovery laden journey that was last year’s Underground Music Showcase in Denver, CO; we are once again gearing up for another edition of our favorite music festival in Denver. One of the few remaining music gatherings in our the fair city of Denver to eschew the typical smattering of major label festival fare, The UMS has dropped the first glimpse into a lineup boasting over 1,500+ acts strewn across various shops and bars dotting Denver’s South Broadway district, and we’ve already got stars in our widening Ninja eyes as a result. Buoyed by the gleaming synth-pop of Portland, OR’s STRFKR and the psych induced dream-rock of Brooklyn trio DIIV, as well as TMN Favorites Rose Quartz, Wild High and The Epilogues, this year’s UMS looks to be as top heavy as ever without skimping on any of the underground qualities which brought it to prominence in the first place. Grab your tickets here, and quite honestly, for our friends in Denver, $50.00 for a four-day paradisaical dip into some of the best atmosphere and music (of an absurd number of genres as well, mind you) the Mile High City has to offer is what we like to call in the industry… “a steal”.

Check out our 2014 coverage of The UMS here, stream our mini-playlist featuring a tune from each aforementioned act to stoke your UMS fire, and read the full lineup of announced artists thus far for the 2015 installment of The Underground Music Showcase below.
