Lana Del Rey
West Coast (Hippie Sabotage Remix)
Production duo, Hippie Sabotage, have not put out much music, but the remixes and original productions we have heard from them thus far have been phenomenal. On their latest remix, the Cali-based brothers appropriately flip “West Coast,” Lana Del Rey‘s recent single, into a mesmerizing down-tempo masterpiece. Starting off minimally, the re-work builds until around the 1 minute mark when it falls into a subtle epicness before returning to a stripped-down tone. After another drop, the last 30 seconds of the song ride the listener out in a smooth, percussion-assisted groove.
As I finished this post, I realized that all the songs including this one mysteriously disappeared from Hippie Sabotage’s SoundCloud page. Thanks to our ninja powers,though, you can still vibe out to this one above.
Had Em All [Prod. brandUn DeShay]
As the producer behind many of our favorite tracks from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Mac Miller, Danny Brown and Sir Michael Rocks, there’s no question that brandUn DeShay has talents behind the boards, but how many of you out there knew he had bars too?
Currently kicking it in Japan, the Chitown native has immersed himself in the culture, releasing a brand new single to celebrate the beginning of Golden Week. Following a short absence from the game, the multi-talented emcee has emerged from his hyperbolic time chamber Goku style to create some of his most potent material to date. On “Had Em All” we find the hyper confident lyricist waxing poetic over a dizzying instrumental that can be described as nothing less than super fly. Stay tuned for more from the self-anointed “goldUn Child,” as chances are this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing from him.
Over the last few years, rising producer/singer Sampha has worked on projects with SBTRKT, Drake, and released a six-track solo EP, Dual, in 2013. Needless to say, fans are anxious to get their hands on his upcoming debut album. According to a new post from Sampha, it’s currently in the works, and he has a brand new track to share with the world.
His latest comes in the form of a new instrumental (emphasis on the -mental) track “Slow Lights.” Spacey synth arrangements fade in and out of one another as Sampha adds a heavenly vocal extension into the mix, resulting in a three-minute ride through psychedelic soundscapes and off the wall production. Check out the track above and be on the lookout for more music from Sampha in the near future.
Khross pres. Family Blend 001 (Victor Niglio's 'Jiggy Blend')
You can thank the Bloody Beetroots for bringing Victor Niglio’s artfully crafted beats to your ears. After hearing the legendary hard house tune, “Warp,” this Philadelphia-born beatsmith was hooked, plotting out his dreams of becoming a producer/DJ. Having already played piano from the early age of four, he was primed and ready to make the transition.
Fast forward to today and this 22 year old producer has been making strides in this all too cluttered industry. Producing unique and engaging tracks, Niglio has been anything but ordinary as he climbed the ranks of EDM connoisseurs minds, dropping a diverse collection of electro, progressive house, trap, big room and hardstyle tracks.
With such an arsenal of dancefloor-pleasing tunes, we were elated to welcome Niglio into the halls of Music Ninja greatness as our Resident Artist for the Month of May.
So, even though no one can hear this because you’re all ninjas, let’s put together a warm welcome for our newest resdient, Mr. Victor Niglio.
My Nigga Just Made Bail (ft J. Cole)
Taking a step back from the spotlight after a dope sophomore release, J. Cole introduces a chill new track from his latest protégé and Dreamville labelmate Bas, titled “My Nigga Just Made Bail.” The tune finds the Queen’s emcee spitting a narrative about misfortune, complacency, and label chasing over the guitar-riffed production. Although Bas is the star, Cole still finds a way to steal the show, dropping some truthful words on a solo verse, while also lending some vocal talents on the hook, which borrows from En Vogue‘s “Free Your Mind” featuring George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic. Take a listen to the cool summer single up top, which can be found on Bas’ Last Winter LP, a Dreamville Records first release.
Chance The Rapper & Social Experiment
I Am Very Very Lonely
With today marking the one year anniversary of the release of Acid Rap (wow, that flew by fast), Chance The Rapper decided to hook his loyal fans up with some new material. Despite the occasion however, the Chitown native doesn’t seem to be in a celebratory mood. In fact, he’s very very lonely.
Continuing to explore fresh new sounds with his band, The Social Experiment, Chance begins the track by softly crooning, “It’s just me and la cucaracha tonight,” continuing on to perfectly capture the sentiments of all the reclusive (and hungry) stoners out there. It’s the ultimate anthem for anyone who catches themselves alone on a Friday night with nothing better to do than curl up on the sofa and scroll through their Netflix queue. While it’s rather amusing to listen to Chance run through his thought process, the song also serves as a reminder that despite his recent fame, he’s not too different from you or me.
