New York - On November 27th, EPIC Records will release Pluto 3D, a repackaging of Atlanta-based rapper Future's 2012 debut. With three new songs and two fresh remixes - including the album's lead single, "Neva End (Remix)," featuring Kelly Rowland - Pluto 3D turns up the heat on Future's already-sizzling career.
"Neva End (Remix)" featuring Kelly Rowland is one of two new remixes on Pluto 3D; the second is "Same Damn Time (Remix)" featuring Diddy and Ludacris, a relentlessly infectious banger. The new tracks are trademark Future jams, innovative and hooky: "First Class Flights" (produced by Sonny Digital), "Jealous" (produced by Mike Will) and "My" (produced by Sonny Digital).
"Future is officially one of the hottest newcomers in the game—in fact he's, well, the future," Complex wrote when Pluto was released on April 17th. It went on to become one of the year's most critically acclaimed albums, earning praise from all corners of the media universe, from Pitchfork to the Source. Pluto debuted in Billboard's Top 10, and launched four smash singles, "Tony Montana" (featuring Drake), "Magic," featuring T.I, "Same Damn Time," and "Turn On The Lights," which hit the #1 position on the MediaBase Urban chart. Future will perform "Turn On The Lights," on Jimmy Kimmel Live to mark the release of Pluto 3D on November 27th.
On October 9th, FUTURE ignited the stage at the 2012 BET HIP-HOP AWARDS with a mega performance of his monstrous hit "Turn On The Lights" into "Same Damn Time (Remix)" joined by Diddy amongst other heavyweights. The electrifying pyro-explosions and glowing laser lights set the bar as one of the most triumphant performances of the night. Future (born Navyvadius Cash), is Atlanta rap royalty with family-ties that run deep to the core of hip-hop. He started making music in 2005, hooking up with his cousin Rico Wade, legendary producer and founder of the trailblazing hip-hop collective, The Dungeon Family. "The Dungeon is where I studied songwriting," the hip-hop hit-maker reveals of honing his craft.
Future signed with Epic late last year, and released Pluto on April 17th. "[Pluto is] feel good music straight from the soul," he says. "It's music with no boundaries."

On Monday October 22, 2012, Vinnie Paz released his sophomore solo album God of the Serengeti featuring production by DJ Premier, Havoc (Mobb Deep), Psycho Les (Beatnuts), Marco Polo, C-Lance and more with guest appearances by Scarface, Mobb Deep, Immortal Technique, La Coka Nostra, Army of the Pharaohs, Kool G. Rap, R.A. the Rugged Man and others. The 18-track album adds yet another chapter in the growing legacy of Vinnie Paz’s uncompromising brand of hardcore hip-hop.
Here’s a new track, “You Can’t Be Neutral On A Moving Train,” Vinnie Paz’s sophomore solo-album God of the Serengeti:
PDP (Phil Da Phuture) releases his new music video for "Get Bank" helmed by acclaimed music video director Jerome D (Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q). "Get Bank" can found on PDP's new mixtape Louder Than You available on Halloween.
Amon Tobin presents the next brutalist masterpiece wired up under his Two Fingers guise, "Vengeance Rhythm." A low-slung exercise in violence, brooding power and pure production smarts, in the words of a recent Resident Advisor feature, it's "a little like dubstep built on an interplanetary scale." The tune has been brought to life (and death) in a truly jaw-dropping video from stop-frame animator and director Chris Ullens. Ullens transforms a pile of toys, a love of super slo-mo explosions and a huge pile of mince into the funniest, most eye-popping and shocking exercise in animated ultra-violence since Walt Disney discovered Mickey and Donald were engaged in Un-American Activities together.

Jay Z's Life + Times Premieres French Horn Rebellion vs. Database "Poster Girl". EP out 11/6
Courtesy Girlie Action.
The French Horn Rebellion Wisconsin brothers David and Robert are gearing up for a return and will play new tracks. Their debut album had killer tracks like "Up All Night", "This Moment" and their track with Database "Beaches and Friends" is still a frequent party starter. "Orchestra Geeks Gone Wild" is band's mantra and "Next Jack Swing" ((New Jack Swing, but with heavy beats and funkier dance lines) describes genre of their second album that they're about to finish in their You Too Can Woo-studio.
Written, produced and mixed by brothers Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, The Infinite Music… is a debut album that warps the fabric of dance, electro, rock and funk and was possibly last year’s most ambitious, multi-faceted and engaging debut album. Crucially, the album also follows an intergalactic narrative that tracks the physical and emotional journey of an unknown French horn player, with a story that loops into itself - being infinite. “The album is basically the result of countless hours in the pit orchestra of operas, and thinking how fun it would be to score something like that, only with hot beats," says Robert.
The band have also remixed the likes of Sleigh Bells, MEN, Two Door Cinema Club, OMD and Alex Winston.

Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils: This Halloween... We're MONSTERS
Mad Dukez and Fresh Kils met each other at an Atherton concert. They started work on an album together, called GETTING GATBSY'D. It's bringing back the Roaring Twenties and is conceptually based on the novel. But they keep making new and better songs for it, so it's not coming out until next year. Rather than wait, they're getting their trick or treat on and dropping five tunes before heading out on tour with Blueprint. It's only five bucks, and if your pre-order it now, you get an instant download of the lead single, so go get it.
