Big Boi x Theophilus London x Tre Luce

by Michael

Check out a collaboration by Big Boi and Theophilus London in the form of “She Said OK.” The song, which is produced by Chris Carmouche and features Atlanta producer/singer Tre Luce, has a really smooth, laid back feel to it that I can imagine you putting on after the sun sets, right when you are finally getting relief from another brutal summers day, and you’re in the mood for some alone time with that special someone. The chorus which sings “Let me see your pussy, let me see your titties,” confirms that assumption. This song could possibly be off Big Boi’s upcoming solo LP, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, or London’s Rose Island mixtape. Both of these projects have no set release date, therefore we have pretty much no idea where this song will end up, but, where ever that may be, make sure you listen to this song. It has a definite summer-chill mode-relaxation-fuck responsibility-get bitches feel to it that you need in your life right now. You look so tense.

“Harlem Shake” by Baauer

by bspener

Released on Diplo’s Mad Decent label, “Harlem Shake” by Brooklyn artist Baauer has been circulating via DJ sets for some time now. Today, the label finally released the track for free on Soundcloud. Everyone should look forward to hearing the deep bass of Baauer’s tracks this summer, starting with “Harlem Shake” (Diplo thinks so). Also, if you’re around New York, you might even get the chance to hear him live. Hopefully, Baauer will keep on blowing up, which seems likely if he keeps on releasing tracks like “Harlem Shake.”

SSION, “My Love Grows in the Dark (Nightfeelings Remix)”

by bspener

(via The Fader) The guy from SSION is an archetypal hipster—like the kind you don’t think really exists (see this video for evidence). Nevertheless, SSION has that 80s vibe that we all enjoy. This remix of “My Love Grows in the Dark” by Nightfeelings moves the song from sounding like a Blondie or Madonna anthem to sounding like a lighter New Order or Depeche Mode song. Anyway, “My Love Grows in the Dark” is a cool dance track. Download the remix below or get the original somewhere.

Azealia Banks

New Azealia Banks. Produced by Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook. Need I say more? Download/stream below. Bank’s debut EP, 1991, is scheduled for a release this summer so keep on the look out for that.

Baauer – “Harlem Shake” *Bad Boy Preview

by bspener

With the full release dropping in about a week, Baauer just gave us a preview of the track, along with a cool video or people dancing around in black and white clothing—make special note of the SA Spurs jersey in the video. “Harlem Shake” will be released on the Jeffrees micro-impring of Diplo’s Mad Decent record label and will hopefully be one of the sounds of this summer. We’ll make sure to post the full track when it comes out.

Elite Gymnastics Mixes

by bspener

Listen, K-Pop, J-Pop, etc. is great. It’s like all the best things about electro, house, disco, pop, etc. but you can pretend the lyrics mean anything you want. Elite Gymnastics is actually just two producers/DJs based in Minneapolis, but they use a lot of Asian music in their mixes. Revel in the pop music. Elite Gymnastics put together one of these mixes for Opening Ceremony, a rather trendy and eclectic chain of boutiques, so its content is certifiably cool (right?!). They made the other for Forty Ounce Clothing, also cool (I think?). You can grab some of their original tracks along with some remixes off their Tumblr pageas well. Their rework of “Fuck the Club Up” by Waka Flocka Flame, which they entitle “Waka” is particularly good.

ALL WE FUCKING CARE ABOUT IS KPOP WHITEHOUSE AND OUR CATS

“X Gonna Give It To Ya” (CheapShot Remix)

by bspener

I would like to be able to say that I’m over electro remixes of popular rap songs, but I’m not. Yes, they’re cheesy, but I can’t help myself. Ergo, I interrupt our regularly scheduled culturally relevant content to bring you this remix of DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” by CheapShot. You can grab it off CheapShot’s SoundCloud page, where you can also find remixes of “A Milli” by Lil Wayne, “Drop It Like It’s Hot” by Snoop Dogg, and “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” by Jay-Z, among others. Just download these remixes, listen to them now, and pretend that you listened to the originals when they came out. I, for one, did not listen to “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” when I was ten.

“Crew Love (Starslinger’s Jersey Refix)” by Drake

by bspener

In case you haven’t heard enough Drake/The Weeknd/Star Slinger on this blog and others, here’s a recent remix that Star Slinger did of “Crew Love” by Drake ft. The Weeknd (of course). This remix gets rid of that pounding, broken beat in the original “Crew Love,” giving the track more of a dance feel. So now we have the original, Shlomo’s darker, slower version, and now this dance (kinda) version.

Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers 2 Mixtape and “Amen”

by bspener

There are a bunch of high profile rappers all over this mixtape, notably Rick Ross, Drake, and Fabolous along with some up and coming artists like Kendrick Lamar and French Montana. Anyway, you can go download it at DatPiff. This mixtape goes along with the message from Rick Ross and Maybach Music Group’s recent press conference (below).
