[Hip-Hop] Frank Ocean – Blue Whale

Frank Ocean‘s stellar debut album, Channel ORANGE, elevated him to the top echelon of artists in the eyes of many music fans. On his first release since the album, Ocean shows off his versatility delivering his unique brand of songwriting in rap form. Although mostly known for his singing voice, the Odd Future affiliate has already demonstrated his abilities as an emcee on tracks like Tyler, the Creator‘s “She” and on “Blue Whale” he perfectly compliments a smooth instrumental, which maintains the sound consistent with his work as of late. There are few better ways to kick off your week than some new Frankie O. Enjoy it below!

[Remix] Frank Ocean – Thinkin Bout You (Ryan Hemsworth Bootleg)

Frank Ocean has come a long way, from singing hooks for his fellow Odd Future members to releasing one of the most critically acclaimed albums of the summer, Channel Orange. His stand-out single “Thinkin Bout You” gets an original twist with the help of Halifax producer Ryan Hemsworth. Using the opening strings of the original track, Hemsworth employs a soft laid-back melody, building drum beats and complimentary synths worthy of a video game to create this rhythmic remix. Hemsworth manages to put his own touch on the track without destroying its beauty. This rework will be featured on his upcoming Last Words EP dropping August 21st.

[Hip-Hop] Mellowhype – La Bonita

The Pretty Girl is Mellowhype’s attempt at a new single. Left Brain creates a Caribbean production with thick bass to compliment the xylophone keys. Hodgy jumps in to talk about his “Puerto Rican mama” and his other Hispanic women. As with recent Mellowhype releases, this is another great release but so far the theme and creative lyricism is what is driving this to be my favorite.

Alt-J – Fitzpleasure (The Internet Remix)

Odd Future affiliated post-soul duo, The Internet, create a beautifully haunting remix to the already awesome track Fitzpleasure  by the Cambridge quartet alt-J. The Internet features OF DJ and singer, Syd tha Kyd (pictured above), and producer Matt Martians. Their first album, Purple Naked Ladies, was in my opinion one of the most underrated of last year. They manage to carry the dark, ominous sound of the Wolfgang from an innovative and soulful angle. This is something to bump at the end of a legendary summer night.

[Hip-Hop] Domo Gensis – Elimination Chamber ft. Earl Sweatshirt, Vince Staples & Action Bronson (Prod. The Alchemist)

Fresh off the announcing their No Idols mixtape, Domo Genesis & The Alchemist drop this verbal assault. The smooth & eerie beat allow the Odd Future natives and company to use an original chopped eccentric flow, in line with the “no idols” theme. Surprisingly enough, Earl does not provide the most impressive verse. Rather, Vince Staples delivers some standout bars with, “I live to die, better that than live a lie.” An awesome collaboration and definitely a project to look out for. (Written by Carlos F.)
