[Hip-Hop] DJ Jazzy Jeff – Life Colors

While many of you out there might currently associate DJ Jazzy Jeff with re-runs of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, he’s out to prove that he’s more than just an icon of the past.  Teaming up with LRG and Complex Magazine, Jazz proves that his skills are just as polished as ever, bringing together a smooth blend of classics like The Pharcyde’sPassin’ Me By” with recent hits like Kendrick Lamar’sSwimming Pools (Drank)“.  He even adds some electronic flair in as well, showing that he’s very much in-tune with the modern era, and willing to expand his horizons.  At just over an hour, it’s very easy to find yourself getting lost in the seamless transitions between tracks.  While DJ Jazzy Jeff is not the sexiest name out there right now, he’s clearly proven why he’s still one of the top DJ’s out there and continues to demand our respect.  This is an essential mix for any hip-hop fan.

[Hip-Hop] The Dean’s List – Hennessy at Cookouts

I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love a good cookout and the Boston trio The Dean’s List keep it classy with this end of summer jam “Hennessy at Cookouts”. With this delicious dope anthem to a glass of cognac with a burger or a white girl with some kool-aid, the Northeastern group delivers some luxurious rhymes over the echoing voices in the Alexander Mendoza beat. In a way this track keeps the mood of the end of summer while members Sonny Shotz and Mik Beatz deliver some fast-paced rhymes. As a Boston-native and rising fan of the the group, I couldn’t help but give this track a listen. I am feeling the departure from the electro beats The Dean’s List have done in the past to the more underground, chill rap-oriented vibe, but just wished they added at least one more verse or bridge at the end.

Be sure to hear more from their upcoming album Jerusalem, dropping September 17th.

[AFRODUBSTEP] Wonder Girls – The DJ Is Mine (Afrojack Remix)

Turning tables, and not so literally this time, is Afrojack‘s latest sneak peek of his dubstep endeavour remixing Wonder Girls‘ “The DJ Is Mine”. Not a complete departure from his dirty dutch style, Afrojack’s adds much aggression to the track injecting prominent wobbles paired with the highlight vocals of the Wonder Girls, without going over the top.

Feed Me – This Is The Thing (Fink Cover)

Played and sung by me as best I could without ‘help’. Written by the great @finkmusic. The guitar is an old family one from the attic I restored, it’s buzzy but I like it.

Feed Me, one of the most aggressive dubstep/d&b/electro producers of our times has just released the most unusual of tracks, a soft and acoustic guitar tune that includes his very own vocals. It may not be the next banger, but it is a definite welcome to the music mind of the London producer. Delivering a standout cover of Fink‘s “This Is The Thing”, Feed Me once again not only shows the world his diversity, but his willingness to promote all types of music.

[MP3 Playlist] Indie Dojo August 2012 Round #4

Sure, the best things in life can be free. But the things we work our asses off for are also pretty amazing. Cause really, if everything was handed to us, we would end of up taking advantage of some really rad things. So to compare life to an Indie Dojo, sometimes we come across these bad ass songs that are ready for a free right click-save to the music library and sometimes we can only give you a Soundcloud stream. Either way though, we try to keep a healthy balance, just to help you appreciate all the free and not so free things in the world…

[MP3 Playlist] The Trap Dojo Volume #2

Hope your ready for relentless 808′s and Hi-Hats to the face. Trap is taking over the world and were doing everything we can to make that happen as quickly as possible. The first track is an insane remix of Clockwork‘s track “Titan”, Cesqeauxs works wonders with nearly perfect progression. I liked the the original version of “Turbulence”, but this mix from Oh Snap!! has really got me raging face, chopping up the beat at the right times with the classic 808 and Hi-Hat abuse. Lately anything Ryan Hemsworth related has turned to gold and you got Baauer on the remix, nothing more needs to be said. Munchi transforms Naffie’s remix of “Satisfaction” into another instant classic providing an amazing take on this OG anthem. This remix from Oliver Twizt of “Money’ Makin” is one of my favorite tracks released in the last week. Featuring a totally unique approach to this massive track from A-Trak and Dillon Francis, the second drop is just hectic. Iggy Azalea has never sounded like more of a boss. heRobust has BUSTED this one wide open with this masterful rework of “My World”.  I’ll let you enjoy the rest on your own, and don’t be afraid to hit “Buy” some of them might even be free. Cheers.
