It is pretty difficult to deny that the NYC is going through a sort of hip-hop revival right now. That is not to say it was in a slump necessarily, but the amount of young talent coming out of the area right now is pretty incredible. Brooklyn native and Warner Brothers signee, Dyme-A-Duzin, is a shining example of this new wave of emcees delivering classic, east-coast style with a refreshingly youthful twist. The 20-year old phenom released his most recent mixtape a few weeks ago giving the wider world a glimpse into how he earned a record deal at such a young age.
On his most recent release, Dyme teams up with fellow rising Brooklynites, Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers, to remix one of the strongest tracks from his most recent project. The resulting song truly demonstrates that the art of hip-hop is, indeed, far from dead. “New Brooklyn,” which will be on Peter Rosenberg‘s upcoming New York Renaissance compilation, features a true east coast instrumental, courtesy of Dante Ross, reminiscent of A Tribe Called Quest with impressive cypher-esque verses from all of the young emcees. If you’re feeling this one, make sure to grab Dyme-A-Duzin’s stellar mixtape, including production and features from the likes of Harry Fraud, Plain Pat, and Joey Bada$$, for free here: Dyme-A-Duzin - A Portrait of Donnovan.

Hard hitting blues has always just stuck around since its birth during America’s coming-of-age. Here and there, you run across an artist today who seem to have an intimate relationship with the subtleties of the classic and fickle genre. Hollis Brown has a good idea. The broken down elements of “Cold City” include a pair of distorted guitars; one of them a droning bass and the other a gritty guitar. Add drums, an enthusiastic organ, and low, guttural vocals and its plain to see five-piece Hollis Brown hits the nail on the head. Released just a half-year ago you can listen and download it below.
Yesterday we featured Krewella‘s Troll Mix Volume 2, and they opened with this Trap remix of “Killin It” from STRATUS. The progression throughout this massive remix is near perfection, featuring a simple but catchy intro. Utilizing some amazing vocal work from the sexy voices of Krewella. The second drop is by far the most hectic, delivering some filthy wobbles from the original with a heavy bass twist. Not to mention the melodic 8-bit and incredible synth work sprinkled throughout the whole track. Also make sure to check out his website, STRATUSbass.com.

The only question is, what league are you going to be in this coming Saturday night Denver? Because there is one duo heading to City Hall to knock any other leagues out of the park. You like hip-hop? What about trap? Then there is only one league for you to be in and that is the Big League made up of Brooklyn trap sensation Baauer and hip-hop extraordinaire producer Just Blaze.
Snowdown, which has been a Colorado trademark winter sports celebration for years, takes place this Saturday, February 2 at City Hall and they have stacked the cards high with this year’s line-up including mad rapper Machine Gun Kelley. Baauer was recently named the #1 artist to watch in an MTV article and is already one of the top trap producers in the game. Mix his love of hip-hop with that of Just Blaze (whose background includes Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West) and damn son, where’d you find that at? Don’t miss out on this show Denver because it is going to be dum dum off the chart.

Everyone’s favorite stony wordsmith, Curren$y, blesses us today with the first single from his upcoming mixtape featuring hip-hop heavyweights Lex Lugar, Wiz Khalifa and Rick Ross. On “Choosin’” the New Orleans based emcee starts things off with a slow, bravado-filled verse fitting perfectly with Lugar’s slapping, 808-heavy beat. Wiz comes with a solid verse and Rick Ross delivers exactly what we have come to expect from him, which is good or bad depending on your musical taste. Hopefully Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa’s second collaborative project is on the way soon, but this should definitely help hold fans over in the meantime. Stream this dope track below look out for Jet Life City, which drops Super Bowl Sunday (February 3rd). Go 9ers!

First off we got Keys N Krates dropping a dope remix of Kanye West‘s track “Clique”, delivering some solid vocal work and huge 808′s. Steve Angello and Laidback Luke’s classic House anthem, “Show Me Love” gets a Festival Trap re-work from Stephen V & Alvo. “3 Chainz” is the name of this Hot and Heavy Trapped out mess from Oliver Twist. Benzi & Willy Joy team up on this next one titled “Vibes” which starts off easy, and then drops into some extremely hectic synth and drum work. Probably the sexiest track on this Playlist is from Cashmere Cat, with this remix of BenZel‘s track “Fallin Love”. Zeds Dead haven’t released this track yet, but titled “Ratchet” and they sample Juicy J‘s track “Bandz A Maker Her Dance”. Enjoy the res on your own and cop all the Free downloads. Cheers

Back in 2010, Florida’s fuzzy indie rock group Surfer Blood unleashed their excellent debut album, Astro Coast. This summer, the band will release their sophomore LP titled Pythons. We get a taste of that record with the lead single, the dynamic, guitar-driven “Weird Shapes”. The cut is in line with most of their previous material, but we can’t help but really love the wild yelps in the chorus. See what we mean below. If you dig, download it for free here.
