[Hip-Hop/Electro] DJ Muggs – Headfirst (feat. Danny Brown)

DJ Muggs, of the legendary Cypress Hill, has always been one of the more innovative and experimental producers in hip-hop. This is evident in Cypress Hill’s recent success stepping out of their genre restrictions collaborating with EDM artists. On his latest single, Muggs teams up with Detroit’s one-of-a-kind MC, Danny Brown, for a bass-heavy track that demonstrates the vet’s ability to stay relevant without losing his unique sound.

“Headfirst” will be featured on DJ Muggs upcoming album, Bass For Your Face, which will also feature Chuck D, Dizzee Rascal and Freddie Gibbs among others and is due out on January 15th. Slap it below!

Eric Clapton – Cocaine (Koyote Bootleg)

Koyote, the mashup and bootleg producer that never ceases to impress us, is ready to start 2013 with a bouncy release. Originally written and recorded by JJ Cale in 1976 and then later covered by English singer-songwriter Eric Clapton, “Cocaine” became one of most enduringly popular hits in its era.

Koyote has interwoven the original vocals and injected with a enough feel good spring-like bass that it is almost impossible to stay still. Plus the light hearted trumpets make it for a definite party track.

[Indie] Raveena Aurora – Grey Eyes

Amidst the subtle yet intricate plucking of guitar strings, soft piano keys, and delicate bass line lies the beauty of the sun, and the goddess of sunrise. While we wish we were deep enough to write an ethereal sentence like that, we’re of course referring to the enchanting lyrics of Raveena Aurora. You see, Raveena derived her name from Sanskrit words in which Raveena means, “the beauty of the sun,” and Aurora means, “the goddess of sunrise.”

The warmth in Raveena’s name can be felt in every soul gripping word that she lays over perfectly orchestrated instrumentals. Her song structure is anything but traditional, and we couldn’t be any happier for that. This 18 year old singer/songwriter has delivered a deep and loving single from her freshman EP, Where We Wander, and we’re on the edge of our seats waiting for the release (out early February). Until then, we can assure you that this song will be on repeat for quite some time.

Turn the lights down low, press play, and enjoy.
