[Hip-Hop] No Wyld x MEMBA – Off For The Night

No Wyld x MEMBA
Off For The Night

Hip-hop is all over the place right now. One area that is seeing a lot of growth is the combination of electronic music and rap, but then again, both seem to be spreading their wings everywhere. One such single that fuses the two is “Off For The Night” from No Wyld and MEMBA.

“Off For The Night” is not your typical hip-hop track. Produced by one of dance music’s finest, this track is quite distinct. MEMBA delivers an amazing instrumental without trying to overshadow No Wyld, a humility that isn’t often seen when these sounds collide. No Wyld doesn’t give us another mumble record, instead offering up a soulful song with just the right atmosphere you want in a record this time of year.

[Indie/Hip-Hop] Ash Riser – Ghosts LP

If there was only one project you could listen to all week, make it Ghosts by Ash Riser. For one, it’s packed with seventeen tracks, so you’re sure to get your fill, along with some variety. Secondly, it’s an extraordinary project that only Ash has the ability to put together.

As you might guess from an album called Ghosts, the mood overall is quite haunting and dark. Ash has already established himself as a unique creator, but with this LP he cements an undeniable pillar deep in the ground and high in the air for everyone to see that he is a must know artist. He kicks up some hip-hop, but his indie sound doesn’t hold him to any one genre throughout the project. Ghosts isn’t something that should really be analyzed as it speaks for itself in a way that is unrivaled. If you’d like a copy, hit up the digital service of your choice to get it.

[Music Video] Ryden – The Recipe

Ryden certainly has the recipe for success. She’s been cooking up hot tracks on her own, pushing her project independently on a route that could take her to some big places in music. Her newest release is her biggest endeavor yet, a hip-hop hybrid called “The Recipe” that has its own music video, directed by Ryden herself.

Videos aren’t something new to Ryden as she’s put together trailers for her tracks previously. However, now we’ve got a full fledged music video that is anything but a simple DYI project, despite Ryden actually doing it herself. It’s a major project, with some impressive shots and locations. For the song, Ryden amps up her hip-hop meets trap sound for something even more edgier than her previous works. All in all, both creative halves of “The Recipe” are on point.

Pardon Me

Pardon me, but we have something to share with you today. “Pardon Me” from avery shyra dropped as a free download on Litt Music and you need to have it. The hip-hop heater is just the track you need in your Summer playlists this year.

“Pardon Me” is not your typical rap tune as it employs a poppy R&B tone that makes the song stand out. We’ve already hailed avery as someone to lookout for and with the new release, nothing changes. In fact, if anything does, it’s that the urge to get on the avery shyra train is more urgent now than ever. He’s a talented artist that’s putting out great accessible work in the hip-hop realm. With so many people pushing to sound a certain way, it’s nice to hear someone doing their own thing.

If you’re in need of some good hip-hop, you’ve come to the right post. Noah North comes in to satisfy your craving with his new single “WASSUP” produced by Paul Couture. Paul is a familiar face around the dojo, but who he comes with this time is soon to be all the same.

Usually I’m not a huge fan of this style of rap, but Noah North came in so hot we couldn’t even deny it. “WASSUP” is a laid-back heater that may take you by surprise as it did us. It’s catchy in its own unique way, embedding itself into your mind until you’re singing the lyrics without even having the track playing. Litt Music released this track as a free download, so there’s really no reason for you to miss out on it.
