Newcomer and NYC native B.Martin debuts a new banger for your listening enjoyment. The track titled “I Want it All” mixes some southern-club influences with hard-hitting drums and a rattling beat. Leading the single is the young emcee B.Martin, followed by Juicy J with an infectious hook, and Kendrick Lamar to deliver his usual song stealing verse. This is definitely a track made for the weekend turn-up and has the three emcees working well to deliver a hit on this Tim Kamillion Hill production.
My bb Katy Perry (GROUNDISLAVA COOL MIX)
Yes, it was kind of strange searching Google Images for a Katy Perry picture. Yes, this is a Katy Perry song. But I promise you that you haven’t heard “Wide Awake” done like this. Los Angeles producer Groundislava makes this hit more than just tolerable, he makes it damn right repeat-worthy. The remix features hard-hitting, chopped up and wub-wub heavy aggression, which is offset nicely by swirling synth work and Perry’s saccharine vocals that are dropped in every once in awhile. It certainly won’t take over the original anytime soon (though I might prefer this version), but it’s always great seeing another artist re-invent a piece of work, especially one that’s so familiar.
Rising artist Fallulah has garnered a following back in her motherland, Denmark, but quickly made a splash down in Austin during SXSW earlier this month and with good reason. Her punchy track, “Out Of It”, was so infectious, the kind of tune that stays with you long after the work day (or work week) wrapped up. She continues her worldwide takeover with the release of another new tune called “Dried Out Cities”. Though it’s not as in-your-face as its predecessor, there’s something very hypnotic and exciting about her breathy vocals playing against the thump, thump, thump of the beat and the clap, clap, clap of the hands off in the background. She’s yet another female artist poised to storm the electro-pop stage any minute now, so stay tuned for more.
