Another day, another dope single that Westcoast emcee Kendrick Lamar lyrical dominates. On this remix, the South Florida duo Urban Noize remixes the Canei Finch track. Adding in some horn sample cuts and head-nod worthy drums to the beat, the duo compliments the track well. Young Jeezy comes through to drop off a quick street-inspired verse over the throwback vibe and still does the track justice. Still feel like both the original and remix could use a guest verse from Bun B. but this is a solid remix that still keeps the old school rhythm of the original. Take a listen below.
Wild Country (Teen Daze Remix)
In case you missed it, we reviewed Wake Owl‘s recent indie EP, Wild Country (hint: we think it’s pretty beautiful). This week, the folksy acoustics of the title track are stripped away and replaced by the cascading, psychedelic electronic ambiance from Canadian producer Teen Daze. The remix is (excuse the pun) wildly different than the original — everything from the mood to its textures have been altered — but somehow still just as powerful and captivating. Listen in above.
Getting ready for the release of his latest LP, NY emcee Talib Kweli drops his latest single today for fans listening pleasure. The smooth Grind Music produced track, titled “Come Here”, has the always conscious Kweli taking a more romantic approach to wooing the woman of his dreams. Teaming up with R&B-star Miguel for some soothing vocals on the chorus and hook, this track is definitely something the ladies will love. The combination of Kweli spitting some truth and Miguel delivering an addictive hook make this unexpected single a buzzworthy release, as we patiently wait for his album to drop April 23rd. Be sure to stay on the lookout for some more heat on Kweli’s latest effort, titled Prisoner of Conscious, which also features from Marsha Ambrosius, Busta Rhymes, and Kendrick Lamar.
