Sometimes life has us a little distracted with little nuances that we forgot what is most important or what really matters. On newcomer Katrynada‘s single “All We Do”, he teams with motwon singer JMSN to croon about easily letting a woman down because of the simple distractions of everyday life. Although it can be considered a “break-up” song, the blending of smooth, multi-layered production with the R&B singer’s soft vocals, can leave no mate bitter. This is the first track off of the Montreal producer’s HW&W Recordings upcoming EP Kaytra Todo, dropping February 25th, and a dope but tranquil listen.

Canadian indie rockers Born Ruffians have returned with a new single called “Needle”, off their new album Birthmarks. Channeling their more captivating 2008 record Red, Yellow & Blue than 2010′s Say It, the track is punchy and crunchy, riddled with dancing guitar lines, and buoyed so pleasantly by enthusiastic pop melodies and unrestrained joyous yelping. Take one listen and it’ll be bouncin’ around in your head for days. Tune in below.
Born Ruffians’ Birthmarks comes out April 16th on Yep Roc.
Los Angeles producer Bahwee drops major heat while still retaining an ultra suave touch on this swirling, infectious sex-ay jam. “Back it up, back it up, put it on me…” It may sound a little hasty, but don’t be misled — because of all its right moves, the tune’s more of a sensual, irresistible temptation than an aggressive, pushy order. Sometimes you just need to play nice to get what you want, right? Listen in below and m e l t…
Back in January we were honored to premiere the bass pounding new single ‘Shakedown‘ from London producer Jacob Plant. Experimenting with both dubstep and trap, Jacob is now releasing his own trap remix of the original, packing some serious attitude and copious amounts of bounce. While its predecessor was a heavy progressive electro juggernaut, the trap vip mix is a completely different beast, both in style and structure, sharing only its distinctive throbbing bass and vocal samples. With so much going on in EDM, Jacob Plant is a refreshing and rising star, expect more from him in 2013 and beyond.
After building up an enourmous amount of hype, releasing 2 official videos for tracks ‘Cake Boy‘ and his collaboration with Chiddy, Hoodie Allen finally releases his free mixtape Crew Cuts.
Crew Cuts is definitely his most diverse mixtape to do date, including features from Chiddy Bang, Chance The Rapper, Shwayze, G-Eazy, Skizzy Mars & OCD along with production from !llmind, Jared Evan, RJF and Sap. You can stream all the songs below as well as download the album in its entirety here.
With Crew Cuts, I had two big goals in mind—1. I wanted to challenge myself to try new things and work with new people. I have grown up a lot in this past year and I wanted the music to reflect those experiences. It is easy to “play it safe” as an artist, but I think in order for your fans to grow with you, you can’t be afraid to evolve and be better. 2. I wanted to collaborate with my amazingly talented friends and make a free project that sounds and feels like a debut album.
