Man what is this.
You know how it is, mornings can be rough. This is why music & grass exist.
Fuck this blog shit.

Good afternoon yall! Hip hop is the past, present and future.

Common Ft. Biggie - Announcement (Mick Boogie Mix)
More incredible work by the mixtape master, Mick Boogie. This track is off his Sounds of Miami 4 mixtape which you can grab for free on his website (just click the name above). The mix is filled with all things Pharrell and plenty of unreleased Neptunes tracks. Yeah this is hip hop baby,  I'm fin' to take you to the tip top baby.

U-N-I - Castlevania
Straight out of the violent ghettos of Inglewood, California, this rap duo has been getting a lot of respect for the diversity of their style. The two members - "Thurzday & Y-O" - touch on everything from old-school video games, limited edition sneakers, low-income public housing, all the way to lapdances from voluptuous ladies. For instance, this track off of their debut album "Fried Chicken & Watermelon" is the perfect example for the colossal assortment of beats they're putting out. In this case, it's all about that Nintendo theme.

Hasta luego.

Hello dearest of friends, how have you been? Excessive work is where it's at, but fear not... The OFWGKTA feature will be back next week and you can expect some top notch music from the mastermind of this crew, Tyler the Creator.

Just came across Mr. Little Jeans, actually a stunning lady, but that doesn't really matter. Her music is superb and her voice is mesmerizing. She comes from a little town in Norway and will most likely remind you of other sublime female artists such as Ellie Goulding, Likke Li or Marina and the Diamonds. RAC gets on another remix from this singer/songwriter and does a brilliant job.

Next up, I came across a cover of Pomplamoose's "Beat the Horse". The cover version was produced by Science for Girls, an electronica side project of New Jersey producer Darren Solomon. He made this fantastic song into a dreamy melodic minimalist masterpiece after hearing some chick named Dana singing it.

I've also included a sweet little video of Munk's "Violent Love". Another uplifting song with heart-warming girlie lyrics. I just adore it when a video matches the vibes I'm getting from a song. Filmed "à l'envers" we are taken through a break up. The girl in the clip is French actress Jeanne Tremsal, simply gorgeous!

All this sensually enthralling music is giving me butterflies in my stomach. Gotta love pretty girls with pretty voices! See you tomorrow.

Hello fine fellows and fellaws. Seems like I've lost my mind. But that's alright, it hasn't been up to much anyways. I believe this is the perfect time for some mindless head-banging music. Enjoy!

Boys Noize - Nott (Paul Chambers Adventure Remix)
Paul Chambers has been on my watchlist since his "Yeah Techno!" and "Singapore Swing" tracks. This time around I had a chance of hearing his remixing abilities and let me tell you they are phenomenal! The drop is massive and super high tempo which can only make a crowd go apeshit.

Mark Ronson Ft. Boy George - Somebody To Love Me (Congorock Remix)
By far my favorite remix of this song. Other remixes by Redial or Holy Ghost, just to name a few, do a good job, but keep it too slow, nice and easy or however you want me to put it. Congorock is the only person who delivers a pure club banger. The monster of "pump up the volume" music, sticks to the sound that made him famous, grimmy synthesizers thrown over a god-like tribal bassline.

John B- Up all Night (Jack Beats remix) REMOVED BY REQUEST
Wow. All I can think of saying is WOW! After Jack Beats' remix of Shutterbug I didn't expect to hear anything nearly as good for a long time. Guess I was wrong. Heard this on the John B Podcast (yeah listened through all of it just to hear this song since it was nowhere else) and my ears orgasmed. It's just a set rip, but damn it's solid.

This has got to be the most massive post I've put out in a while. Hope my insanity does well by you and your weekend partying. Got my finals for the next few weeks so I'm certain Cal and Brig will keep the music flowing.

-B is for brains


OFWGKTA pt 4: Mike G

Honestly, every time I post about Odd Future, I could just copy paste the word swag a thousand times and leave it at that. You'd get the idea.

This week's edition of OFWGKTA shines the limelight on a rapper that may not necessarily get the same amount of burn or whatever as the other members of the crew, but it still a force to be reckoned with: The King, Mike fuckin' G.

Mike G- Brown Bag (04 KTA)

Slow, chopped and screwed beats are this OFWG rapper's poison of choice, and he decimates them every single time he hops on a track. Like all of the crew, he has a very distinct style, but his signature flow reminds me a lot of West Coast hip-hop, much more than the other members. Even though some might think he's from Houston, given the types of beats he gets on and his flow, his swag is very Californian. Don't ask me to elaborate on that, but if you disagree, go ahead and say why in the comments. You know, this dude should rap over screwgaze or witchhouse or whatever the fuck it's called, that'd be pretty rad.

Mike G & Wolf Haley and MellowHype- BlaccFriday

Mike G is still very much OFWGKTA in mind, body and spirit, but I think that he is one of the more accessible members. I mean, dude is still talking about doin fucked up shit and partyin', but I can imagine him spittin it on a beach, rather than in a dark, moldy, boarded up insane asylum, like in a lot of Wolf Haley and Earl songs. A good change of pace, really. Give this dude a minimal beat with just a snare and a bass drum hittin once every five seconds and I'd bet he'd make it sound dope.

Mike G- Everything that's yours

Like Domo Genesis and MellowHype, Mike G is much more on the mellow side in terms of beat selection. He's heavy on the wordplay and all that, so all it does is give him more leeway to ride the great OF productions. Slower beats don't necessarily mean sluggish flow and lazy punchlines, all it means is that it sounds better when you're layin in the cut. Nothing like bein' blizted and appreciating dope rhymes and spacey-as-fuck beats.

Mike & Vince Staples- Moracular Word

Here's a video of him performing at Low End Theory, which should at least give you an idea of his demeanor. Dude is mad laid back hahaha. He's probably blunted out of his mind though so it's all gravy. Fuck Steve Harvey.

Mike G & Earl Sweatshirt- Stick Up

You can download Mike G's dope 9 track mixtape, called Ali, at the link below. Beats by Left Brain of MellowHype, SydThaKid and of course, Tyler, the Creator. The very definition of fucking awesome.

ALI Mixtape

I probably sound like a bloody broken record when I repeat this, but hotdamn these dudes are fire. I've noticed that my posts on OFWGKTA don't really feature much in the way of videos, so I've included a video of a Wolf Gang performance just to give you an actual look into what I've been goin' on about these past month. This shit is hyyyyype. SWAG.

You can check out the other profiles I've done so far on this crew if you want to catch up on some mixtapes that you may have missed. All of them are free. How the fuck are you gonna argue with that? Odd Future is a movement, a phenomenon, a supernova and lifestyle all rolled into one . Oh, and there's going to be a feature on them printed in the newest edition of The Fader Magazine sharing the spotlight with the young Based God Lil B & the insane Young L. How's that for blowin' up?

OFWGKTA pt 1 - Earl Sweatshirt
OFWGKTA pt 2 - Domo Genesis
OFWGKTA pt 3 - MellowHype

Dope beats, hot bitches, we the new Wu-Tang.

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.

The horsemen of the apocalypse are here, people. Except they skateboard, rock Supreme snapbacks and smoke way too much ganja. Oh, and most of them are in high school. What were you doin' at that age? OFWGKTA are makin power moves. Get on it. #RARE



The Widdler

Wobble Wobble.

Quick post to introduce you to The Widdler in case you haven't had the chance yet to discover his psychedelic music. This guys is well known for his smashing style and his weird but well proportioned depth of sound.

Not for everyone, gotta have your dubstep goggles on. Personally, I really like the "Lady Dub" track.

Remixes :
Collie Buddz - Come Around (The Widdler Remix)
The Cool Kids - Black Mags (The Widdler Remix)

Originals :
The Widdler - Lady Dub
The Widdler - Sensi Samurai

I didn't post the most fuckup tunes of his since I didn't want to traumatize any virgins out there but if you like what you hear make sure to take a look at his other stuff.



Freaks Come Out At Night

Good evening yall, hope your doing alright. I went for a quick browsing in my favorite vinyl joint today, only bought 1 record. It reminded me of some cool artists/tracks I used to listen to some time ago so that's what your getting tonight.
No descriptions this time, let the music convince you.
Pure hip hop vibe.

Shyheim - Manchild
Solillaquists of Sound - Bulletproof
Apollo Brown - Odds Ain't Fair (Feat. Hassan Mackey)

hope you enjoy



sans joie

Good evening, my friends. I'm really quite tired, due to a weekend of over-the-top abuse. Ugh. I went to No Joy's album release show at Casa del Popolo on Saturday, so I figure I'd post a lil' bit about them. Not really going to go into much depth though, I'll save that for the rest of the week. I've got an OFWGKTA feature planned for thursday, so keep an eye out for that.

The first opener was a girl from Montreal who really impressed the hell out of me. Claire Boucher, aka Grimes, is a beautiful, talented-as-hell young woman who makes really trippy pop music. She didn't play for very long, but she rocked the shit outta her sampler and keyboard. Reverbed ethereal pop/goth vocals were a good way to start off the night, and I'll definitely be checking out more of her stuff. Very dope. As well, her EP is free, and you can get it HERE if you are so inclined. Cosmic witchcraft trippiness.

Grimes- Devon
Grimes- Beast Infection

Next up was Ducktails, the new side project of from Matt of psychedelic indie rock band Real Estate. Twas' alright, a bit on the meandering side. Still, he laid it down proper, and his brand of garage pop was a good fit. I'd need to check out more of his material to really be able to have an informed opinion, but I enjoy Real Estate a lot, so I'm betting I'll probably enjoy his solo material as well. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing, but it sounds like he wrote most of these songs after a long night of partying.

Ducktails- Landrunner
Ducktails- Friends

After that was Metz, a Canadian rock band, which I totally missed due to a very long cigarette + scotch break. Oops. I heard muffled bits and pieces of their set through the wall though. Sounded a bit on the grunge/sludge side of things.

I also have exactly zero Metz songs on my hard drive to share with you. My bad.

Metz myspace

And finally, the awesome Montreal four piece known as No Joy. Don't let the name turn you off, though. No Joy are really dope purveyors of psychedlic shoegaze. Imagine two beautiful women chanting over cacophonous feedback, and you have No Joy. Their myspace page lists their genre as Doomgaze, which I'm guessing is halfway between the new stoner/goth movement known as Witch House and the floating melodies of shoegaze. Regardless, they put on a really solid performance. The only thing that I did not dig as much was the rather hipster heavy crowd. Now, most people would consider me a borderline hipster, so I won't rag on the stereotype too much, but wow. Montreal is really heavy on the artsy fartsy types who keep their arms crossed, completely immobile, while they harp on about "the kind of blind faith I can see in eveyone's eyes". Y'all need to chill the fuck out and groove out a bit, you pretentious bastards.. No Joy is the future. Dope performance that night, as well.

No Joy- Hawaii
No Joy- No Summer
No Joy- Pacific Pride

I've also included their video for Hawaii for your viewing pleasure.Hope you dig.

sleep time.


Laid Back Sunday #12

Well hello there. Decided to go with classics. You know the deal.

The Firm - Affirmative Action
The firm was a group project started by Nas in 1996. They had Dr. Dre behind the decks and had big names such as Foxy Brown, Cormega, Az and Nature spiting on the beats. Doesn't get better then that. This beat has been in my top 10 for a long time.

Notorious B.I.G - Hold ya Head (feat. Bob Marley)
I think we haven't posted any B.I.G since the creation of this mighty blog. Today is the perfect time to kick it old school with a joint from the album "Duets". Notorious & Bob Marley, I mean... come on.

KRS-One - MC's Act Like They Don't Know
Since I was posting so many old school shit, decided to go all out with the last beat. Classic shit by KRS-One, produced by Premier.

back to the lyrics maaaaannn
