LA underground favorite, Busdriver, is best known for his unique style and absurdly fast and intelligent raps. On his most recent track, he teams up with Das Racistto create a strangely captivating display of quick-witted, unconventional lyricism. The production on “Firehydrant” toes the line between postmodern and obnoxious combining a plethora of unlikely sounds. However, the weirdness of all three emcees manages to emerge triumphant and, upon a few repeats, you will more than likely find the instrumental growing on you. Make sure to listen closely, as you’ll find a surprising amount of valuable content between the lines. Stream and download this original track below and look out for Busdriver’s upcoming Free EP, Arguments With Dreams, out next month.
Sometimes the best kind of pop is shrouded in washed out guitars and a blanket of noise. Hotel Mexico — who, despite their name, are from Kyoto, Japan — have figured out this formula, resulting in fuzzy, but catchy concoctions. Perfect for one of those hazy lazy Summer days.
“Wolves Running Through the Desert” is out via Double Denim Records.

Benny is old enough to be my dad and he’s still pumping out anthems. “Jammin” is hands down my favorite Bob Marley track he ever produced and now Benny Benassi takes these feel good vibes and transforms it into a dance floor destroyer. This two-minute preview is barely enough to hold me over until its release on September 2nd, but I guess we can just press the repeat button. Benny brings some booming synths and an amazing melody, then breaks it down with a filthy dub-infused section, only to build right back into his nearly perfect melody. Cheers.

Experiencing heavy success, Miami’s Diego Camejo released video footage surrounding the release of his Rise EP. If the visuals of beautiful women, Miami, and extraordinary club showouts for the young DJ don’t get you clicking, I’m sure the music will.
Check out our previous write-up on the actual EP right here.
I love it when two of my favorite artists collaborate to form something new!Boreta from The Glitch Mob, and EPROM bring us this tasty new sound that rocks the Glitch genre. They put both of their unique styles in a blender and pooped out Nasty Ways. “Cyber Snake” treats us with some low heavy bass, with a side of a squelchy lead. “Skrakken” takes us for complete turnaround with a bass so heavy it’ll blow your head off! If you’re new to EPROM check out his latest LP here.
“Your Favorite Rapper” ATL native Alley Boy drops another banger titled “I Live This Sh*t” off his upcoming mixtape. Recruiting the southern rhyme style of newcomer, Mississippi emcee Big K.R.I.T., the Big King Remembered in Time produced collabo is a sped up sample geared to the clubs and hard enough for the streets. With both rappers going hard the track and doing the beat justice, the bass-heavy and chiming instrumental makes a perfect Southern anthem. Alley Boy’s upcoming tape “The Gift of Discernment” is dropping later this year.
