So Into You – Childish Gambino (Anomura Remix)

Free Download | So Into You - Childish Gambino (Anomura Remix)

You might have missed this Tamia cover that Childish Gambino released earlier this month, but if you haven’t heard the jazzy, clean, lightly produced R&B track yet you need to go give it a listen. Thankfully, Anomura released a free-to-download rendition that plays around with upbeat tropical house vibes while still maintaining the mellow qualities that Gambino initially captivated us with. The transitions in percussion from snares to claps to snaps helps create a seemingly complex arrangement, and the multiple layers of blues-inspired keyboard melodies act as a welcome replacement for the hypey synths we’d normally expect in an electronic remix. Give it a listen and show Anomura some love on Twitter and Soundcloud.

Telegraph Ave/Sober – Daniela Andrade

January 27, 2015


Download Telegraph Ave/Sober - Daniela Andrade

God knows you’re familiar with Childish Gambino’s Telegraph Ave, but if you’re like me than Daniela Andrade is a new name to your ears. This Canadian singer is known for her acoustic covers of popular songs, but when I saw that she covered this single off of Gambino’s project Because The Internet I just had to see what her rendition sounded like. After slowing the pace and layering an acoustic guitar over some reverby synth-pad chimes, her soft vocals melt into the instrumental as she strums and sings the somber ‘Bino lyrics. She seamlessly transitions between Telegraph Ave and Sober (off Childish’s latest project STNMTN/Kauai), melding the two into a completely renovated indie-acoustic gem. Take a listen, check out Daniela on twitter and soundcloud, and if you really want to show some support go check out her online store.

STN MTN – Childish Gambino (Mixtape)

October 2, 2014


Free Download | STN MTN - Childish Gambino

Although we didn’t expect this project to be free, Childish dropped an 10-track Gangsta Grillz mixtape this afternoon with no notice whatsoever. After the huge success of his album Because The Internet, I had my expectations set pretty high when I hit play, but soon realized that this was a different sound for him entirely. He heavily relies on his own lyricism and delivery to keep listeners interested, going as far to spit acapellas in a few of the tracks. The production could’ve been better, especially considering Gangsta Grillz sponsored the tape, but all in all I was still happy with the outcome. To name some favorites, Money Baby, Candler Road, and Go DJ. Enjoy.

I know most of you are probably music savvy enough to have heard Gambino’s new album ‘Because The Internet..’ that dropped last month. Well I slept on this official free remix from Ta-ku, so without further ado here’s his take of my favorite track from the album ‘Telegraph Ave’.

Centipede - Childish Gambino

Gambino is back at it with another hard hitting track full of clever lyricism. He starts this one out with an ominous acapella that he later samples into a trippy chorus, but keeps things fresh and throws in a break down or two. After his hiatus I was expecting a little more, but we’ll see where his next track takes us.

It’s been a long minute since Gambino’s dropped a track (about 2 weeks…), so I was psyched when this popped up on my dash. I like his solo work so much better than his features, and this track is a great example. He flows about his life alot, which I kinda dig, and throws in some funny rhymes (as expected with an ex-comedian). Enjoy.

Unnecessary – Childish Gambino, Schoolboy Q, & Ab-Soul

Download Unnecessary - Childish Gambino, Schoolboy Q, & Ab-Soul

Finally, a nice CDQ version of this track without radio voice overs, ‘Funk Master Flex’ interuptions, none of that. Gambino, Ab-Soul and Q go HARD on this track. The sound is a lot more mainstream then I expected from Gambino, since he likes to keep a ‘hipster’ vibe to his tracks. Anywho, ya’ll should still enjoy it, download it, etc.
