Electronic producer Big Wild released Native Echoes on the Cosmonostro label earlier this week. This 3-track EP is incredibly refreshing, blending together the sounds of both new-age electronic and traditional tribal music. The opening track, Sunrise, progresses through a wide spectrum of energy while incorporating both 808 and acoustic percussives, closing out with an ethereal dream-like vibe. Full Moon brings us back to bass, kick, and 8-bit samples and even has a little piano breakdown near the end. The last track, As the Rain Falls, emphasizes winds, bass, and those tribal vocal samples that drive the entire EP. You’ll find that Native Echoes is the perfect high quality music to chill out to. Download the free project, and then head on over to Big Wild’s soundcloud to hear more of his music (Freedom of Joy and To the Left are two of my favorites). He’s pretty versatile in his experimentation and starting to make some big waves in this scene.
Even though I don’t have the ability to give ya’ll this track for free, I couldn’t just not share this. First of all you get production from Scoop Deville and the legendary Travis Barker, for an ambient, electronic banger that might make your ears bleed on the right speakers. To top that off you get verses from Paul Wall, Hopsin, AND Yelawolf? I know, I just blew your mind. There’s really no need for me to bore you any longer with an in depth explanation, because I’m confident you’ll fall in love all by yourself. Hit that play button one time and cop this joint on Itunes if you can’t stop turning up.
Dizzy Wright hit 300,000 likes on Facebook! You probably don’t care very much but you should, because in honor of his fans he dropped this little gem produced by 6ix on everybody’s heads. Dizzy Wright has been one of my favorite artists out right now, and this piece here showcases all the things I like about him. Not only is the lyricism rapid, and creative but he puts a lot of thought into what he’s saying and what he is trying to say. Dizzy says things no other rapper would or could say, and he’s just incredibly upfront with his audience. He connects with his audience on a very personal level, almost like your sitting in the room with him trying to solve the world’s problems. It’s tracks like this that remind me why I love hip hop, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
You ever feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day? Cause Atlanta’s emcee Que might just agree with you. Que has never been featured on our site before but what better time to change that then with this track? The first thing ya’ll will notice about this track is how much of a banger this is, Sonny Digital really knocked this one out the park. The bass line in this is just to sick, and the same goes for the eerie piano riff. Que comes out in this one swinging, spitting bars all over the place. The verses all prove the same thing; this emcee is skilled and to say he’s hungry is an understatement. IF your tired of people wasting your time, or were never with the bull shit in the first place hit that play button.
When I heard this drop was coming I expected a mixtape full of ‘Hotel California’ leftovers, and although half these tracks are exactly what I expected, there’s also a few bangers for your after-finals-raging playlist. You might be somewhat disappointed with the production throughout the tape, from recycled beats to shitty simple beats like the one in ‘Good Day’ featuring Meek Mill and our favorite fallen-off rapper Lil Wayne. If there’s one fixed variable in this tape it’s Tyga’s talent, each track, good or not, showcases the versatility and success of YMCMB’s hottest artist right now. Cop the tape and grab the new ish before your friends do.
Cash Cash, the electronic music trio from NYC, just dropped a hot new edit, incorporating tracks from Daddy’s Groove, Cryogenix, Showtek, Justin Prime, Deorro, along with Disclosure’s When A Fire Starts To Burn as the driving force behind this track. When A Fire Starts A Cannonball is straight fire, because during the five and a half minutes, you’ll hear dubstep, house, club, straight up electronic, and even a festival trap breakdown at 2:22. You won’t find much repetition in this song, which makes it interesting to listen to over and over again. Enjoy the new release and snag the download for free.
Welcome to the trippy R&B collab titled ‘Suitcase’. Everyone’s favorite Chicago rappers Vic and Chance are known for their unique lyricism and innovative production, both of which are prominent in this free new single. The entire song the go back and forth dreaming of a paradise they could escape to with nothing but a suitcase. As always, their lyrics are like a puzzle that take a few listens to unscramble. Obviously the suitcase symbolizes something, but as for the Dragon Ball Z reference in their album art I haven’t thought of an explanation. Maybe they just like Dragon Ball Z. Either way, kick back and enjoy some modern Chicago-Blues.
Today Rick Ross let the remix to his single “No Games” go for free, but he and DJ Scream compiled this tape and released it just hours later. My theory is that he’s a Christmas guy. Anyway not every song on this tape is great and I’m not going to sugar coat that, but there are a couple gems in here if you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty. You might have even heard a track or two off this tape before. We got a lot of star power on this tape though. Between Maybach Music’s very own Meek Mill, Wale, Omarion, Gunplay, and Rockie Fresh to features like French Montana, Future, J Cole, Audio Push, and Kirko Bangz you should be able to find something that you enjoy. If your looking for a little direction though give these tracks a chance: “Dope Dealer” by Meek Mill feat Rick Ross & Nicki Minaj, “Diamonds & Henessey” by Omarion feat Audio Push, “Swangin” by Stalley feat Scarface, “Kush” by Gunplay feat Rick Ross & Lil Wayne, “What Ya Used To” by Rockie Fresh feat Hit-Boy, and “Give It Up” by DJ Scream feat Verse Simmonds & Kirko Bangz.
We always enjoy adding new artists to our library, but I’m particularly pleased to introduce Atlanta’s K Camp. Camp hits some really great beats on this tape but what really stands out is his voice. He spits his bars smooth as silk, and when he does decide to sing it’s jaw dropping. Or maybe I’m overreacting? Either way I really enjoyed my experience with this tape and couldn’t not give y’all some extra homework. Like I said the production is solid the whole tape courtesy of producers like Big Fruit, Sonny Digital, Will A Fool, and Jameezy. You bass heads will really dig some of these beats, so make sure you check out at least one or two tracks before doing anything hasty. Some tracks for you guys to spotlight: Make A Wish, Think About It feat CyHi The Prynce, Off The Floor, & Cut Her Off.
Say Say is a happy indie feeling electronic remix from up and coming producer duo from Seattle The SoundMen. Reminiscent of Phoenix and Two Door Cinema Club, this remix of Say Say breathes solid bass, smooth vocals, and a little bit of 8-bit thrown in there too. It’s one of those songs you wanna get up and dance to in your room when no one else is watching. It’s a dynamic journey that takes you through both upbeat verses and mellow breakdowns. Cop the download and save this one for your chilling out playlist.
