[Hip-Hop] Earl Sweatshirt – Whoa (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

Earl Sweatshirt
Whoa (Feat. Tyler, The Creator)

After dropping the much heralded “Chum” a few months ago, fans have been clamoring for Earl Sweatshirt‘s next release. For many, “Chum” seemed like a maturation in the young emcee’s thought process, as he tackled personal issues and struggles head on. Earl and crew are out to prove nothing’s changed though by dropping this brand new video for “Whoa.” As Tyler, The Creator alludes to in the beginning of the song, they’re out to revive their 2010 vibe, when people were first shocked by the video for “Earl.” This one isn’t quite as extreme, but it’s certainly peculiar.

It begins with Earl waking up in a run down trailer, and then donning a winter coat in nothing but his boxers, before heading outside to watch some 50-some year-old woman pirouetting around in a tutu. Yeah, it’s weird, but nothing out of the ordinary for Odd Future standards. “Whoa” comes with the trademarked laidback, yet sinister sound we’re used to from all Odd Future tracks. Earl shows off that sweet, complex rhyme scheme we’ve come to admire from him, while Tyler takes duties on the chorus. Earl’s upcoming album, Doris, doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s easily one of the most anticipated projects of the year.

[WMC Event] ‘Anjunabeats Volume 10′ Pool Party w/ Mat Zo 3/16

Above and Beyond
Anjunabeats Volume 10 Mini-mix

Gah! The events just keep pouring in. Thankfully we’re stealthy ninjas and we can quickly traverse the busy Miami streets. Hopefully the alcohol and party goers won’t slow us down. This time around we’re happy to tell you about the Ajunabeats Volume 10 Pool Party with Mat Zo, Seven Lions, Norin and Rad, Andrew Bayer, Jaytech, Maor Levi, and Beckwith. This Saturday pool party is going down at the The National Pool (1677 Collins Ave, Miami Beach) from 12pm – 10pm. Make sure to buy your tickets the second you read this sentence, as this will sell out.

Now that you’re back from snagging your tickets, mark your calendar and get ready to party. We’ll be there in full force, although, minus the ninja masks. Black masks at a pool party in the Miami heat is probably not the best idea.

Rick Rollin (Candylands OG Mix)
Nothing At All (Candylands Festival Remix)
Nothing At All (Candylands Not Festival Remix)

Be ready to get Rick Rollled, full Candyland OG style! Josie Martin & Ethan Davis, aka Candyland, are prepared to represent their electronic swag this week at WMC/Ultra by releasing The WMC EP. “Rick Rollin” is a slow burn trap infused melodic ride that takes Rick Astley ubiquitous vocals to more profound levels of sonic consumption. The EP also features two distinctive remixes of Timeflies’ Nothing At All, with the self described “Festival Remix” being more inspiring big room track and the “Not Festival Remix” encompassing everything that is naughty and gritty into a six minute track.

A surprising EP to celebrate the chaotic and festival fulled weekends of March.

Catch Candyland Live During WMC:
March 17th: Candyland @ Mekka
March 20th: Knife Party Presents: Haunted House
@ Mansion featuring Candyland, Kill The Noise, Tommy Trash

Justin-TimberlakeThe-20-20-Experience-Mirrors- stream

No more waiting. Justin Timberlake’s entire album “The 20/20 Experience” is available for streaming in iTunes today.

After an enormous amount of hype and impressive remixes of the likes of Four Tet and Dillon Francis, the 32 American singer-songwriter is back to “rekindle his love affair with music.”

With listening to a couple of the tracks so far, we can’t completely vouch for the entire release, but just incase you have been following the release very closely, you can now stream it on its entirety through iTunes.

And of course if you missed his appearance on this weekends SNL, here is probably the highlight of the show with a sketch titled “Bring It on Down to Vegan Ville”

Best Coast – Crying (Roy Orbison Cover) (ft. Snacks The Cat)

Crying (Roy Orbison Cover ft. Snacks The Cat)

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard new material from Bethany Cosentino, aka Best Coast, but I think the music world will go on just fine thanks to little surprises like this. The surfy-vintage-pop-rocker takes on “Crying”, the beautifully somber classic ’60s track originally by rock legend Roy Orbison. Though not as heavy-handed as the original — it’s got Cosentino’s signature sweet, lo-fi shagginess — the cover still shows a good dose of tender yearning and romanticism. Cry to (or fall in love with?) it above.
