into the wild


It's 9:40 in the morning, sunny as hell outside, and I'm off to bed. Coming back home after a long-ass night shift doesn't exactly put you in the mood to write anything of any substance, but I'll try my best. I'll try to get deeper some other time.

In the meantime though, here's some scattered thoughts from ya boy.

Jim-E Stack- Lemme (REMOVED BY "REQUEST")

Brand new tune from New Orleans' resident maniac, the one and only Jim-E Stack. Every single one of his productions are fresh to death, and this one is no exception. Wild hedonistic rhythms and insanely tripped out samples are his modus operandi, and no one really produces anything that sounds quite like his tunes. He's also pretty darn good at DJing, so check him out if he rolls through your town, it shan't disappoint.

Machinedrum- Swagfuneral (Low Quality rip)

Sorry. Machinedrum is one of the sickest producers in the game, and I must applaud the fact that he, like many of us, is getting tired of the word "swag" being overused. This is a low quality rip of his funeral dirge. Lunice likes to start off his shows with this thing, and I figured you might dig it, at least as a conversation starter. (Yes, I use the word swag all of the time. I'm trying to stop, but for now, I'm part of the problem)

DJ Javier Estrada- Baile Swag

Javier Estrada is so unbelievably boss. This young producer from Monterrey is blowing up and receiving mountains of praise from all over the globe. He started producing his own take on Tribal Guarachero called 'prehispanico', but has started to incorporate a lot of crazy sounds and influences into his music as of late, like Moombahton and cumbia. Hit up his soundclound for more goodies, he's mighty prolific, and his tunes are bound to turn any summer party into a sweat-drenched display of debauchery.

Crooked Lettaz ft Pimp C- Get Crunk

Before David Banner was whispering dirty things into your ear, he was a half of a duo called Crooked Lettaz. Their album Grey Skies is a bona-fide Southern classic. This is probably my favorite cut off of the album, an absolutely amazing street gospel tune featuring the late, great Pimp C.

Stereoheroes- Longshot (NEUS remix)

Epic bang0r! I told you I wouldn't be getting too deep today, ahaha.

Good "night", my friends.




Let's get into it, ladies and gentlemen. It's been a lil' while, hasn't it.

I'll try to switch it up this morning. Hopefully there's something for everyone.

Peter Peter ft Coeur de Pirate- Tergiverse
Peter Peter- Homa

Peter Peter is a very recent discovery of mine, a folk/pop artist from Montreal that sings in French. I bought his album after only seeing a few videos of him performing a few songs acoustically, and I must regrettably inform you that the CD's mastering is absolutely piss poor. The songs are still pretty sweet, but it sounds like poo, man. Peter Peter makes really depressing minimal pop music, with a touch of folky whispering included. This might not be your cup o' tea, but I enjoy it a whole lot.

Swedish House Mafia- Save the World (Style of Eye & Carli remix) (REMOVED BY REQUEST)

Yeah, I went there. This has probably been posted on everyone and their mother's blog, but given its undeniable summery anthem feel, I figured I might as well include it. This will probably rule the clubs, beaches and terrasses this summer, for sooth. Warning: May induce fist-pumps galore.

Mata ft Mali Boi, M.P & Big P.O.P.E- Streetz

Block Beataz in this bitch. Besides Yelawolf & G.Side, I guess I haven't really been hearing too much about the Huntsville scene, but I still bump old PRGz & Slow Motion Soundz tunes on the regular. This was one of the more 'street' tunes that they released, a heavy trunk-rattling banger with an absolutely amazing beat. Mali Boi, who produces most of the Paper Route tunes, and raps on a few tunes, is nuts, and Big P.O.P.E still has one of the most unique voices in rap.

Diplo & Douster- ON! (REMOVED BY "REQUEST")

Again, this has been posted quite a bit elsewhere, but it's a really neat collabo between two of the dopest club DJs out there, so I just had to share it. Not really sure what to call this. Grunts, beeps, wild percussion and fart sounds make the club go wild.

Lunice & Young L- Hip Pop (remix)

Merci #basedgod. Waaaaaaaaaay too much (dare I say it...) swag for one tune. Thanks to Southern Hospitality for putting this together, really doe. Montreal x Bay Area. Lucky Me x Legendary Inc. Good x Lord.

I am tired as hell, time to go to sleep.
