RAC brings us one of his first originals of 2012 “Hollywood”, in collaboration with Penguin Prison’s Chris Glover to create this pop-rich summer-friendly feel-good track. You can download it for free @ Green Label Sounds today.
Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan (pictured above) just got the rework treatment from modern electro-reggae icons Major Lazer with some help from ETC. ETC. who you may remember from his collaboration with Bro Safari on “Ass Clap” earlier this year.
The mix goes back and forth between lighthearted beach party sounds and killer club vibes. Listen bellow and add it to your summer playlist.
Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean and Jadakiss have come together for a G.O.O.D. Music’s remix of Chicago rapper Chief Keef’s “I Don’t Like,” but it seems that not everyone is happy with the result. Original producer Young Chop told radio host DJ Moom Dog this week:
“I’m mad as f*ck, for the simple fact that they did not ask me to change up sh*t in my beat. How the f*ck did they add another melody over the instrumental? These motherf*ckers is playing me and I don’t give two f*cks, I will sue the shit out of Kanye West… I made a f*cking sound, so you supposed to stay with my f*cking sound. The beat is fucking hard by itself. That shit don’t sound the same, it don’t got the same feel.”
As for now, the track is not for sale or profit which makes Young Chop threats to sue a mute point. Listen to it below:
Modestep are back with their new single ‘Show Me A Sign’, including an intense animated music video of graphic action scenes all synchronized to every woomp and wobble. Supposed to have been released on April 29th, Modestep pushed it back a week due to troubles with their record label. This obviously means that we also have to wait a couple more days for Camo & Krooked drum & bass roller-coaster of a ride of ‘Show Me A Sign’. A 2:33 minute clip that was uploaded earlier this month just wasn’t enough to please fans of this Austrian duo. Listen below and you can pre-order ‘Show Me A Sign’ on iTunes here.

Gems like these come few and far between. Francois And The Atlas Mountains, lead by french front man Frànçois and a group of his friends have set out to successfully captivate the most heart warming cover of Slow Club’s ‘Gold Mountain’. Substituting the original riffs for a soft flurry of guitar pickings and melodic instrumentation, the real heroes of the song go to be the melancholy vocals by both Francois and Rozi Plain. A sad and sweet track that shines hope into any horizon.

This is the first in an ongoing series of new tracks I’m doing with my dear friend and longtime collaborator Brian Konicek (from Mason Proper). Not coincidentally, we are also working together on finally creating the Absofacto live show one or two or ten of you have suggested, requested… or assumed already existed!
The latest release from Jonathan Visger, better known as Absofacto, is a maturely produced hazy track titled ‘Geiger Counter’. Teaming up with Brian Konicek from Mason Proper, Absofacto extends a layer of mystifying electronics that by the end, slowly fade away into the distance, leaving behind glitchy remnants to taste over.
Sun Kil Moon, the solo project of Red House Painters front man Mark Kozelek, will be releasing an intimate LP titled Among The Leaves. ‘That Bird Has a Broken Wing’ is the second single after “Sunshine in Chicago” giving preview of what is to be expected on its release May 29th. Nark displays calm, soft and steady vocals surrounded by minimal instrumentation and rich story telling.
