[Hip-Hop/Experimental] Emay – Into It

Many of you out there may already be familiar with Emay, but for those of you who aren’t, you’ve been missing out on some fantastic music. The young Canadian emcee has already proven he has an innate knack for music, creating a formative sound that’s easily recognizable, yet never stale. While traditionally wearing the dual hat of both a rapper and producer on many of his songs, Emay takes a break away from the mic on this one, giving us a closer glimpse into the creative process involved in creating his distinctive beats.

He does an excellent job on his brand new Into It EP, a play on the word Intuit, the title of the Ramona Falls album from which the project’s source material comes.  While most samples involve taking a minute portion of a song and looping it over continuously, Emay does a great job of complementing the original work instead, and employing his unique talents to transform the tracks completely.

If you like what you hear from Emay, you can download the EP from Potholes Music right here. Also, if you’d like to hear the man spit some bars as well, make sure to check out the rest of his music on his official website.

[NEW] Kendrick Lamar – The Jig Is Up (Dump’n) (Prod. J. Cole & Canei Finch)

Kendrick Lamar has been absolutely killing the rap game. His debut album with Interscope Records, Good Kid m.A.A.d. City, is already being hailed a classic and generation-defining piece of work. The first week numbers came in today and with an impressive 242,122 units sold, Lamar’s critical success has clearly been also met by approval from the masses.

In the past, Kendrick has mentioned that him and fellow rising star, Roc Nation’s J. Cole, have been working on a collaborative project. Cole’s producing and rapping chops have been repeatedly proven, and his debut album, Cole World: The Sideline Story, was easily one of the strongest of 2011. Today, Lamar blesses us with a glimpse into what we can expect from this dynamic and incredibly talented duo.

On “The Jig Is Up,” Kdot comes with his harder flow showing off his lyrical ability, unique voice and versatility. Cole World and NYC-based producer, Canei Finch, create a stadium-worthy, epic backdrop. Although J. Cole doesn’t grace the track on the mic, he does speak briefly showing his praise and support for Kendrick. Stream and download this gem below and make sure to grab GKMC on iTunes!

[FILTHY] Flux Pavilion – OneTwoThree (Make Your Body Wanna)

Dubstep heavyweight Flux Pavilion has been known to drop an anthem or two. This song could fall into that mind altering category but too soon to say, lets just wait to see if it’s on his upcoming album due to drop in November. Flux has NO SHAME, and he shows that off in this brain scrambling monstrosity titled “OneTwoThree”. Featuring insane high pitch, lazer infused wobbles firing on all cylinders, prepare yourself. Cheers

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo: Volume #11

Whether you have suffered from Sandy’s wrath, or simply trying to get through another week of work, begging for the weekend to get here sooner, The Trap Dojo is coming through every Tuesday to try and brighten up your week with the biggest and best trap tunes we can find. Because Halloween is coming up tomorrow, this week starts with a couple tracks perfect to get you in the mood. Bro Safari teams up with none other than DJ Craze who scratches the hell out of this track, while ETC!ETC! gives the theme song from Child’s Play a very creepy trap flip. If you’re familiar with The Trap Dojo, then you must be familiar with Ookay who has been a regular figure from the start. This week he partners with the Japanese homies Watapachi to remix the legendary FatBoy Slim‘s “Star 69″ into an absolute banger. LOUDPVCK released a new EP this week and this track, “Dolly Parton” is probably my favorite, with a catchy vocal hook, and deep drums and jungle flair. KTheory takes a hint from trapstyle gods Flosstradamus and samples himself some hardstyle and absolutely destroys this track. If absolutely filthy lyrics are your thing, Danny Brown‘s “Witit” will be sure not to disappoint. Brown does exactly what he does best and spits lyrics so nasty they could make even a hooker blush. While this song is a bit older, he just released a video for it this week, so be sure to check it out. With trap music taking over the scene, moombahton has not been getting the press it deserves lately, so to fix that Kaptain brings us a sick moombah track, which flips into some grimey trap later on. If Grandtheft really is as cocky as this track suggests, it’s probably well deserved after kicking out this banger, immediately after working with Diplo on the remix of “Sweet Nothing” by Calvin Harris last week. I usually try and finish of the Dojo with an example of the softer side of Trap and Ookay hits the mark this week with a melodic and soothing remix of “Clarity” by Zedd. While not quite as chill as other similar tracks, this one is filled with soulful emotion, and easily earns the final spot on this list.

As usual, you can pick up all 20 free tracks from this week in the Zip.

[Electro] Krewella – Alive (Maor Levi Remix)

We are huge supporters of anything having to do with Krewella and Maor Levi deliver a massive remix of their track “Alive”. The amazing vocals somehow get even more euphoric  being surrounded by the infectious synths and melodies delivered throughout this whole tune. The drops have a similiar sound deisgn to some of CAZZETTE’s earlier work bringing a relentless bass line that hits at all the right times. Cheers.

[Hip-Hop] Curren$y – Talk My Shit (Prod. Thelonious Martin)

New Orleans emcee Curren$y, also known as Spitta Andretti, has become a staple in the music library of many hip-hop fans. Over the past few years he has proven one of the most prolific and consistently dope artists out while building quite the team with his Jet Life Recordings crew. His summer Warner Brothers Records released album, The Stoned Immaculate, showcased his lyrical wit and OG mentality earning him both critical and mainstream success.

On his latest release, “Talk My Shit,” Curren$y does exactly that over a fitting old-school and cypher-like instrumental by the rapidly rising producer, Thelonious Martin. This light, addicting cut from his upcoming mixtape exudes confidence perfectly representing Spitta’s stony mogul persona. Stream and download it below and look out for Priest Andretti, his latest free project, right here tomorrow. Jet Life!
