[Hip-Hop] Tunji Ige – Missed Calls (EP)

After bursting onto the scene in 2014 with his self-produced debut mixtape, The Love Project, Philly emcee Tunji Ige spent 2015 slowly rolling out a slew of impressive genre-bending tunes including collaboration with What So Not and Oshi. Fellow Philly rep Noah Breakfast, formerly known as Xaphoon Jones, has become his go-to producer and rightfully so–their styles could not be more complimentary. Breakfast’s inventive, electronic landscapes blend with Ige’s own atmospheric production chops and melodic flows.

Today, the duo dropped Missed Calls, Ige’s first official project since his debut taking the musical exploration to new heights. While the EP still possess a hip-hop flavor, the influence of dance music is felt on each track. “Change That,” the opener sets the tone with banging, forward-thinking production and a characteristically addicting hook from Tunji. As the project progresses, each track presents a distinct facet–subtle house elements can be felt on the smooth “War,” heavier electro-trap prevails “On My Grind” and “Bring Yo Friends” and “22,” the final track, carries dreary future R&B stylings. Missed Calls proves that Tunji Ige has the talent to become a cross over star with a sound that’s both refreshing and accessible. Give it a peep below–you can grab on iTunes now.

[R&B] Tory Lanez – Henny In Hand (Prod. Noah Breakfast & Matti Free)

Henny In Hand (Prod. Noah Breakfast + Matti Free)

Tory Lanez is a multi-faceted star, and in the last year or so, has quickly become another one of our favorites to hail from the land up north. While many musicians these days attempt to toe the line between hip-hop artist and R&B singer, the Toronto native manages to execute both roles flawlessly. His latest single, “Henny In Hand,” is proof of that, as the Canadian crooner operates in falsetto for most of the sultry number over some silky smooth production from Noah Breakfast & Matti Free. It’s not until the end of the bedroom jam that he hits us with some bars, choosing to close out the track with a quick verse.

“Henny In Hand” is the third single from Tory’s upcoming debut album, Lost Cause, which will be available September 29th. He also has a corresponding tour set to kick off later this month in Austin, Texas. Make sure to check out his website to find out when he’ll be making his way to your city.

[Hip-Hop] Chiddy Bang – Paper & Plastic

The Philly-based duo, Chiddy Bang, team up with Converse for a pretty awesome and swagged-out track. As usual, Xaphoon Jones is on point incorporating the perfect amount of electro sounds in his production. Chiddy employs a flow popularized by the likes of Juicy J and 2 Chainz, which has recently become a staple in hip-hop. While a bit corny at times, the style is delivered perfectly by the rapping half of the group, who finds a way to put his own spin on it still expressing his individuality as an artist. A great record to turn up and grind to.

[Electro/Remix] Atlas Genius – Trojans (Xaphoon Jones Remix)

Xaphoon Jones, the production half of Chiddy Bang, has been known to make some of the most awesome remixes out. Rather than stick to hip-hop type production, he has shown versatility in experimenting with a wide range of sounds. On this take on Atlas Genius’s track, Xaphoon goes with a darker, Dubstep/Drum&Bass sound and pulls it off with ease. When it drops dramatically around the 1:20 mark, a head knod is almost impossible to avoid.
