It's been an incredible few days out at Bluesfest, had the opportunity between shifts to check some incredible acts, some of which may have to do with some DYNU mixes in the near future... Nothing like a little bit of inspiration. Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue- 10/10. Last week we heard some monstrosity from a number of artists.
First up, K-Dot and Dre teaming up with The Recipe. Been waiting for this collab for fucking months. Now, I wonder if we can get Dre/Jay-Z's 'Under Pressure' anytime soon? Or Detox? Not holding my breath.
Kanye blessed us with not one, but TWO singles. Shot called at Kris Humphries in Theraflu. Better yet, the whole song dedicated to him. His reaction:
"Good luck dude... you'll need it."
If Theraflu wasn't enough Ye, Good Friday brought those memories back of G.O.O.D. FRIDAYS. Filthy dirty southern hop infused with dancehall...? speechless. 2 Chainz fucking killed it!
G.O.O.D. Music: Kanye West – Mercy f. Big Sean, Pusha T & 2 Chainz (prod. by Lifted)
New T.I., guaranteed hit.
T.I. - Love This Life (prod. by Mars of 1500 or Nothin')
Alright, big hits out the way, here's some stuff you may not have caught. Dave Free, one of TDE's major producers (Kendrick, Scholboy Q, Ab Soul, Jay Rock) lays a crazy beat for Ab SOULO!
Ab-Soul – Terrorist Threats (feat. Danny Brown & Jhené Aiko) (prod. Dave Free of Digi+Phonics)
Lute - 80 Proof (prod. by Pete Rock)
Just came across this track tonight... great sample of Daft Punk's 'One More Time'. This will be popular.)
Yonas - One More Time (samples Daft Punk)
Again, heard this tonight, not bad.
Joe Cool – NewLA (prod. Pe$o Piddy)
2 Chainz drops a new video, song production courtesy of Lex Luger.
Jay Electronica drops one of the weirdest songs I've heard in a while... lyrics are next level though, so much talent. I am very excited to hear his debut album Act II: The Patents of Nobility (The Turn). There's something about him that gives me the feeling we are in for a very eclectic LP.
Jay Electronica – Dear Moleskine (prod. Just Blaze)
Phil Ade lets looooose over Tyga's bopper Faded. Borderline...
Phil Ade - Hatin (Freestyle)
Now this track released a month back but I sorta looked over it. Chucked Eminem and Royce 5'9's album back into my car last week and lost my shit... so get ready for May 15th when their LP welcome to... OUR HOUSE! drops! SHADY 2.0
Slaughterhouse – Hammer Dance (prod. araabMUZIK)
Taylor Gang affiliate Neako trys his hand at Usher/Diplo's latest bedroom track 'Climax'.
Neako - LVLCLMX (prod. by Diplo)
A few mixtape reviews later on this week. (Casey Veggies, Young Roddy, Sir Michael Rocks, QuESt) And of course, I owe you all a DYNU mix from Sunday... stay tuned.
