Being a Midwest girl, whenever anyone mentioned Minnesota in the past I always paired it with the 32nd state whose abbreviation is MN, whose nickname is the Gopher State and whose baseball team is the Minnesota Twins. Fast forward to present day and now when anyone mentions Minnesota I know they aren’t talking about a state, oh no, rather, they are talking about Christian Bauhofer, aka Minnesota, the talented 23-year-old dubstep artist from Santa Cruz, California. Minnesota has been tearing up the music scene with his eclectic mix of beats and drops. He has a talent for weaving vocals into the threads of his sound waves, every song carrying a massive energy that only heightens whenever Minnesota decides to throw in body vibrating bass.
Giving everyone an early reason to give thanks, yesterday Minnesota released his song “Yoga Pants” off of his new EP “Altered States” which comes out today. “Yoga Pants” starts off with a nice drum entry quickly infused with lyrics letting any listener know what yoga pants is about, work, work, work girl. “Tokyo” is a song that exemplifies Minnesota’s keen ability to mix so many different sounds to make a masterpiece. The song carries a wave like tune throughout while drum and bass beats, combined with rap vocals, intertwine to complete the piece. “Indian Summer”, featuring G Jones, is a cosmic song that has a seducing rhythm. Close your eyes and this song, with a repeating background beat and light mixes, takes you to another place. To the beach, to the mountains, to another country, this song transports your mind. “To the Floor” and “Float”, which features Zion I, have already been released but are, as usual, songs not to be missed. No longer is the name Minnesota recognized as just a state but he is really a state of mind.

King Chip, formerly known as Chip tha Ripper, gives us one more thing to be thankful for today with his latest Cardo-produced track. On “7-8 Rings,” the Cleveland-bred emcee shows off his progression with a confident and polished sound over a characteristically cloudy and laid-back beat from the Taylor Gang beat man. Stream and download this gem below and keep an eye out for Chip’s upcoming mixtape, Clevelafornia, coming soon. Happy hip-hop thanksgiving ninjas!
Fans of The ILLZ have something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. With the days getting shorter, it’s easy to let your mood get consumed by the long darkness at times, but The ILLZ is here to shine a ray of hope into your life. His newest track is chock full of positive and uplifting messages, as he spends two straight minutes spitting bars about overcoming adversity. The track then winds down by leaving us with a short parting message before letting the ethereal echoing of the piano fade us out. It’s another short and sweet track from the Jersey emcee, but certainly still an impactful one. Each and every releases draws us closer to The Darkest Hour, the new project from The ILLZ dropping soon.

For the next hour you can download this track for FREE, so get on it. Diplo just posted on his Facebook announcing this free give away in support for Calvin Harris’s new album, 18 Months. We posted a radio rip of this massive tune about a month ago, it was first played on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The subtle but flawless edit to the original melody is nothing short of amazing, having Diplo and Grandtheft on a track together is just madness. Cheers.

Unless you’re an underground super-ultra hipster then you most likely possibly watched some part of the American Music Awards. Usher opened the show with a mash-up of some of his most recent hits including “Climax”. It’s a good song, but after hearing Mt. Wolf’s cover I’ve established that theirs is waaaaaaaay better.
Mt. Wolf is categorized under a genre known as “dark folktronica,” their songs are contrasts of deep bass, some traces of dubstep mixed with acoustic guitar and gentle vocals. It’s an odd mix, but it totally works. This cover of “Climax” is intoxicating, filling you up with Kate Sproule’s insanely delicate and crisp voice and a beat so quiet you can’t even hear it. But listen closer and your foot will start tapping and soon enough you’re in too deep to stop. Grab their EP Life Size Ghosts at Two Sister Records right here.
