“Paul and Jeremy both knew they would be fighting over Shelley later. For now the only thing compelling them to work together was the overwhelming urgency to get her somewhere safe, where they could hide her from her mother and sisters, and the world’s prying eyes.”
New York City, The bi-weekly BPM152 party starts up today and rocks all summer long. This weeks heavy hitting line up is Myrryrs, Cedaa, Mess Kid, Old Money Knifeshowand Nire. The place, Tammany Hall, will be packed and the the music will be massive. RSVP.
“The talent on the bill for 6/16 is diverse. The lineup of styles vary from the dark trap samples by MYRRYRS, thugging out bright euphoric synths, to Mess Kid, the new face and sound of Lower Manhattan’s party scene. The inaugural BPM152 event is also extra special because it marks just the second NY gig of Cedaa—it’s been a long time coming. Thank NY’s event impresario Jason Scott for bringing it together with creative direction by Marina Heintze of Dom-Ber. More insight on the inspiration for the event coming soon. For now, get familiar with the DJs on deck.” – Mass Appeal
Our man ELOQ just dropped a big pack of goodies for freee. Lots of exciting new material in there, among a few choice soundcloud heaters. I might also mention it features a collabo with our own Julius Sylvest, aaand, it was mastered by Dixone fam.
Zhala is, and has been for some time, one of the greatest lurking talents in Sweden, which is saying plenty, given how fraught with musical genius that country is. I was lucky enough to share a stage with her and Shamoun (an equally exciting character) at the Gagnef/Skankaloss festival a few summers ago, and they put on a very impressive show. It was no east act to follow, no way. Fast forward a few years, and here she is again, better than ever, and seemingly ready to take over.
NYC’s gift to the children of clubland. THE CARRY NATION “This Bitch Is Alive” ft. VIVA RUIZ is out now on Batty Bass. Remixes from Bubba, Gavin Russom, Sveta & Tokoloshe, & Johnny Dynell. Feel HUH—Ooh QURN!?
Palms Out fam Udachi just put out a really great EP on AC Slater’s Party Like Us imprint. Every track is just meticulously executed, and more importantly, the whole thing is ENGAGING! Which I don’t say lightly. I mean, it’s really original without being super weird and out-there; it just makes me want to keep listening. Udachi is an extremely talented producer, whose output just gets better and better.
Its obvious that 2 Chainz (formerly Tity Boi of Playaz Circle) is absolutely everywhere with everyone at the moment. With his kooky flow he’s definitely one of the hottest rappers in the game currently. So I figured I’d share some of the freshness from this week with ya’ll.
Along with the announcement that August 14th will be the release date for his debut solo album, 2 Chainz just dropped another video from his scorching T.R.U. Realigion mixtape, featuring Philly’s finest Meek Mill.
DJ Paul (of 36 Mafia) has unleashed a remix of latest single “Cocky” featuring 2 Chainz on a guest verse. Look for this joint to be apart of DJ Paul’s For I Have Sinned mixtape, which will hit streets on 4/19. The lyrics on this one are some of the finer literary statements I’ve heard this year.
And to wrap it up, my man Tony Goods just let loose a bootleg club remix of Nicki Minaj’s latest “Beez In The Trap” which, of course, features 2 Chainz. When it hits 1000 plays he’s gonna give ya a free download.
Our dear fam Marcus Price just dropped a crazy lovely EP for our friends over at Discobelle. The strength of the title track alone is enough to grab this release, but the b-sides and the Richelle remix make it just plain necessary. Stream the whole thing below, then buy it!
