[Hip/Hop] November 2009 Random Playlist Part. I


We call this playlist random because it has a little of everything. Hip/hop with pretty heavy electronic beats, Hip/hop with pop/funk and just simply fresh new tracks from Wale and Speech Debelle that we cant stop listening to.

Corynne Elliot, AKA Speech Debelle is a British rapper that has recently released the very sweet track Spinnin’. It is a positive and hopeful song full of soft melodies that go along well with her fast rapping flow.

From his debut album Attention Deficit that will be released November 10, 2009, Wale gets real about the life of celebrities in 90210. Everyday more and more hip/hop artist like Wale and Kid Cudi are embracing electronic elements into their songs creating a whole new hip/hop experience. We can’t wait to listen to Attention Deficit in its entirety but judging from the little that we have listen to, I think November will be Wale’s month.

Just a feel good awesome mash up from the guys over at The White Panda remixing Wyclef Jean and Alphabeat. They have been releasing a lot of great mash-ups lately (including Badd by Ying Yang Twins) and you can expect to see more of their mixes populating the interwebs.

White Panda – Sweetest Fascination

We might get tired of our own answer to this questions but so far it has not changed. How to make an electronic beat sound amazing? Simply sprinkling a little of Jay Z to it. (or at times Lil Wayne and Kid Cudi)

Like most of the songs here, I picked the first couple of songs that were shuffled in my iPod and I am glad Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek decided to show its face. Although most of her songs are synthesized, the raw emotion put into the vocals really make her one of the best Electronica Artist in the world.

The “trumpet” sound on this song really reminds me of the late 90’s when trance was emerging in Venezuela. A very appealing old school style that is still prominent even it todays trance songs.
