Big Sean
1st Quarter Freestyle

After dropping his sophomore album, Hall of Fame, last year, Big Sean is primed for another big year in 2014. Wasting no time, the Detroit spitter is kicking things off the right way with this “1st Quarter Freestyle.” Produced by longtime collaborator Key Wane and fellow G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Travi$ Scott, the track features Sean rhyming over a deep, hard-hitting instrumental for nearly six minutes straight. There’s no clue whether this will be featured on any future projects yet, but we’ve got a feeling we’re about to hear a mixtape announcement very soon. Download the track above, and make sure to check out the Mike Carson directed visuals as well below.

[Hip-Hop] Cam’ron & A-Trak – Humphrey

Cam'ron & A-Trak

When A-Trak released a video last week (via Instagram) teasing a collaboration with Cam’ron, the internet went wild. Well, we now have the first official look into the pair’s upcoming Federal Reserve EP. “Humphrey” has that distinctly Dipset flavor, hearkening back to the golden days of the Harlem collective, when the group was basically dominating the hip-hop airwaves between 2002-2006. This A-Track and Party Supplies produced cut gives us some hope that the group can find their way back into prominence, with Juelz Santana and Jim Jones both set to be featured on the EP as well. Take a listen to the track above, and stay tuned for more from Killa Cam and A-Trak as the year progresses.

[Garage Band Love] Cash + David – Funn

Cash+David Funn single artwork

New artist duo ::swoon::

Let me introduce to you London’s Cash + David, an electronic pop duo who just released their first song “Funn.” When asked how they described their own sound, the duo simply replied, “Singing ‘Like A Virgin’ in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars.” Drawing inspiration from the Beastie Boys and The Knife, this duo immediately shows their ability to mix a diverse collection of electronic sounds, instruments, and vocals. “Funn” has that garage-band feel, people sitting around on beanbags as C+D magically combine intoxicating vocals with drums, hard guitar, and light electronic melodies. So kick back and enjoy the old school feel mixed with the vibrant electro, and expect a lot more from these two in the next year.

[Chill/Deep-House] Felon – Isla (Sebastian Carter Remix)

Felon Remix
Isla (Sebastian Carter Remix)

We first had the chance to feature Sebastian Carter‘s sultry approach to house back in October on the always amazing Chill Dojo (Vol. 58), and in the time since, we’ve had the pleasure of gifting his music to our Ninja contingency multiple times, most recently with an excellent remix of Emily Underhill’s “Ghost”. Today the 19 year-old Swiss virtuoso delivered another slow-burning, eloquent and expressive remix, this time of Felon‘s hollowy synth-pop single “Isla”. Carter utilizes the fine tuning of the original’s poppier elements and disperses them evenly amongst a highly textured backdrop of lush pads, elaborate percussion and Felon’s slick vocal track. The resulting sound is certainly as methodically addictive as it is beautiful, and it more than warranted a trip down our front page today. In keeping with Seb Carter’s magnanimous music personality, this deep-house groover is being offered up by the teenage wunderkind for the online currency of one “like” on Facebook here, so go ahead and add this one to your weekly playlists.

Death By Icon – Let Loose [TMN Premiere]

Death By Icon
Let Loose

The Chicago hip-hop scene is continuously evolving, making it one of the hottest music environments in the entire country right now (even when temperatures are approaching arctic extremes). Today we’re proud to present another piece of that ever growing puzzle, with the debut single from Windy City trio, Death By Icon. “Let Loose” lives up to its title perfectly: a genuinely fun experience painted through playfully honest lyrics and charismatic vocals, complimented by a spastically vibrant, percussion-driven instrumental that melds together elements of hip-hop, juke, and bounce. Comprised of members Vic (vocals), Dook (producer) and Ant (vocals/co-producer), Death By Icon brings to mind a pastiche of influences from OutKast, to Chance The Rapper and Major Lazer, however the group is already able to stand out completely on their own.

Grab a free download of the dope tune above, and follow the band on Facebook and Twitter as they prepare for the release of their upcoming album, Trybecca, set to drop on April 8th.
