Yes. Yes. It’s here: the new Phoenix track “Entertainment”. It does not disappoint and only further reminds us all the reasons — gliding pop, glistening synths, etc. — why we loved their previous album Lisztomania in the first place. Check it out below. Also, if you want to peep the lyric video and sing along, you can do so here.
Lost in the Valentine’s Day shuffle was this brand new cut from Terius Nash, a.ka. The-Dream. With this bouncy and infectious tune, the Radio Killa brings us a sound consistent with some of his previous hits like “Shawty is A 10” and “Throw it In The Bag” which coincidentally, also feature frequent running mate Fabolous. Although The-Dream doesn’t think this’ll be played on Top 40 radio, it’s hard to deny that he has yet another hit on his hands. Make sure to be on the lookout for his newest album, Fourplay, in stores May 7th.
Caution: THIS SONG IS STRICTLY 4 THUGZ ONLY. IF U R NOT A THUG PLZ CLOSE UR INTERNET AS IT MAY INFLUENCE U TO DO THINGS THAT R SCANDALOUS & ROWDY IN NATURE.
With a disclaimer like that, it is easy to dismiss this track as just another attempt for attention. But after the first listen, we just might have to agree. The Los Angeles trap baller Valentino Khan just released another free track full of enough trap aggression to make you want to grab that annoying copy machine that never works and put a beating to it Office Space style.
Straight to your speakers with wailing reverbs, slaps of bass and apocalypse style drops, San Francisco born DJ/Producer, Jordan Atkins-Loria aka Lucky Date, comes full force with a preview of the new track “Freak”. Full of organized chaotic destruction of progressive electro, this guaranteed banger will be out on Beatport Monday February 25th, 2013.
French producer and melody monster Pyramid just released a remix of “Next Year” from Beacon, second studio album by Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club. While not a huge departure from the original, the subtle electronics encapsulate Pyramid’s unique style of harnessing an 80′s electro/pop vibe and exposing the fantastic vocals of Alex Trimble. This rendition takes a turn for the better in one of the best outro pieces we have heard so far. Listen below.
Couldn’t be happier to see this collaboration. Both Hoodie Allen and Chiddy (of Chiddy Bang) have been working the music scene from the bottom up in an aggressive grass roots manner, building up their fan base with the power of free music and support from the entire music blogosphere. Rivaling each other topping the Hype Machine music charts, the two are staying true the the very title of Hoodie’s latest single “Fame Is For Assholes” by putting fame aside and working together on a track that stays true to each of their styles. Hoodie Explains:
I wanted to write a track that mixed a classic doo-wop vibe with the more upbeat hip-hop style that my fans have come to love
‘Fame is For Assholes’ (prod. by !llmind and Jared Evan) will be included on Hoodie Allen’s free mixtape dropping February 20th.
This past year, French Montana found success in the game with his infectious single “Pop That”. Now fresh off his success, he is back with a new dance-hall infused track for the twerkers and dancers this spring and summer. The Rico Love produced banger samples Chaka Demus & Pliers “Murder She Wrote” and the classic Li’L Vicious and Doug E. Fresh “Freaks”. Mixing the two classic tracks with a fast-tempo beat, fog horns, and a quick verse from the femcee Nicki Minaj, Montana captures the island vibe and brings it to the dancefloor. “Freaks” is the second banger off his upcoming Bad Boy debut Excuse My French, dropping May 21.
