[Soul] Jessie Ware – What You Won’t Do For Love (Cover) (Prod. by Sampha)

London-based songstress Jessie Ware uses her smooth, sultry electro-soul sound to breathe new life into “What You Won’t Do For Love”. A classic R&B track originally released in the late ’70s by Bobby Caldwell, it’s been covered and sampled many times over within the hip-hop world by folks like Mary J. Blige, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mariah Carey. Ware’s cover, like much of the music found on her excellent debut album Devotion, is emotional and nostalgic, yet still maintains a very modern and stylish feel. Listen below.

This came out some time ago online, but this week the cover is part of the Future Classic x Laneway Festival series. Future Classic will be hosting their own stage at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, and to celebrate, each week they’re releasing a track from one of their performers.

“What You Won’t Do For Love” is also included on Ware’s new If You’re Never Gonna Move EP, out now.

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo #22

First off we got LOUDPVCK teaming up with DIRTY AUD!O and dropping a massive rump shaker titled, “Buck”. It doesn’t get much better then something new from Luminox, so here’s a remix of The Party Squad‘s track “Go Down Low”. Next is an insane remix from HugLife (formley known as Dj Slink) and he tackles Showtek & Bassjackers‘ tune “Hey!”, transforming it into a Festival Trap anthem. BANDS A MAKE HER DANCE….Finally the Stripper Anthem from Juicy J got remixed, and we have OG Status to thank for this one. In case you missed this Radio Rip of Baauer‘s newest work, it’s titled “Slip” and has already been supported by Diplo. What So Not is a side project featuring Flume and Emoh, and their most recent remix is nothing short of amazing. They remix The Only‘s track “Looking Back” and add some heavy 808 madness mixed with incredibly catchy synth work. Now for a Preview of Dillon Francis‘ remix of Dada Life‘s track “So Young So High”, and you will be trapped in this one. Enjoy the rest on your own, and all the free downloads. Cheers.

[Electronica] Bastille – Pompeii (Monsieur Adi Remix)

French producer Monsieur Adi — who did that awesome LDR “Born To Die” remix back in November — has delivered yet another awesomely fresh rework, working his magic on Bastille’s “Pompeii”. Catchy, exuberant, and slick from start to finish, it does exactly what a remix should do in terms of spicing up the original with new flavors. But Adi goes one step further here: he makes me want to listen to this just as much as Bastille’s version.

Also, if you’re late to the Bastille party (like I am), he’s a London artist definitely worth watching this year. His new album, Bad Blood, drops March 4th. Visit his Soundcloud page.

[Hip-Hop] Rockie Fresh – Life Long (Feat. Rick Ross & Nipsey Hussle)

After dropping the rim rattling “Superman OG” last week, Rockie Fresh decides to ease his foot off the gas pedal as he continues to take us on a ride down the Electric Highway. With MMG boss Rick Ross in tow, along with West Coaster Nipsey Hussle, Rockie Fresh takes some time to reflect on the finer things in life along with the plans he has to prolong that lavish lifestyle. While “Superman OG” might be what you’d listen to pump yourself up on your way to a party, “Life Long” is the cool down song you’d find yourself playing on your way back home. We’re hoping for some more quality music from the young Chicagoan when his Electric Highway mixtape drops on January 21.

[Chill] Cocaine 80s – Fly Ass Pisces ft Common, Jhene Aiko & James Fauntleroy

There is a certain calm that group Cocaine 80s‘ music brings when you hit the play button. It could be the dope No I.D. production or just the smooth vibe the group brings to a track but their latest single is another dose of that sick laid-back sound that has become signature. Collaborating with the newly signed Def Jam vocalist Jhene Aiko and Chitown vet Common, the blending of soothing vocals and hard drums makes this track from their upcoming effort a great listen. Be sure to check it out below and pick up their latest ARTium Recordings 7 track EP Flower of Life, available for free download here.

[Hip-Hop] Talib Kweli – Art Imitates Life (Feat. Black Thought & Rah Digga) x One Two (Feat. Jae Millz & Oh No)

Over the weekend, Talib Kweli decided to bless us with two gems from his much awaited Prisoner of Conscious album. The first track, “Art Imitates Life” is essentially a convention of the most underrated emcees in the game, featuring The Roots frontman, Black Thought, and female veteran, Rah Digga. The song itself is an absolute lyrical onslaught, full of quotable quips that’ll force you to keep rewinding back through each and every verse. While Black Thought slips in his patented socially conscious remarks, Rah Digga seems to channel her inner Freeway as she comments on the state of lyrics in hip-hop.

The second release features another unconventional pair with YMCMB’s Jae Millz, and Stone Throw’s Oh No adding in a couple verses over a funky yet agressive backdrop. Both tracks were produced by Oh No, and showcase why he’s one of the most revered producers out there. It’s songs like these that make you truly proud to be a hip-hop fan. Talib Kweli’s Prisoner of Conscious is set to drop on April 23, but you can still download these two tracks from iTunes right now.
