MP3: DaVinci - "Pangea"


From Audible Treats:

MP3: DaVinci - "Pangea"

Final Loosie Single Released As DaVinci Wraps Up Forthcoming Feast Or Famine EP

The Song:

It's no secret; DaVinci is one of the most gifted young lyricists around, and with this latest track, "Pangea," the Fillmore District's prodigal son has voyaged into spaced-out Philly Sound territory, rhyming over a song, unaltered, by legendary keyboardist Dexter Wansel. The song serves as the final loosie before ramping up for the July release of his forthcoming EP, Feast Or Famine.

Straying far from a typical hip-hop production, DaVinci chose to use a completely unaltered version of Wansel’s famously ambient song "Rings of Saturn" because it helped him reach a higher level of creativity. "The soundscape took my ideas to a cool, laid-back place where I could explain how, through any obstacle, things will work in my favor," says DaVinci. Mirroring the untouched nature of Wansel’s song, the song’s title represents DaVinci’s current state in his career. "Pangea symbolizes something in it’s pure, original form, as well as creation and birth," he explains. "I dropped my debut album last year and I’m about to drop my EP, so this is all still a part of the creation of me as an artist." Despite the airy, psychedelic feel of the song, he still brings the fire lyrically, dropping lines like, "Listen, I never had a pot to piss in/ Not to mention a block that ain’t hot to pitch in."

MP3 Remix: Krista - "Hypnotized" (Johnny Vicious Remix)


From Audible Treats:

MP3 Remix: Krista - "Hypnotized" (Johnny Vicious Remix)

The Song:

Hot on the heels of ARTISTDirect's premiere of her video "Hypnotized," AOL Music's "Video of the Day" feature and her video in steady rotation on MTV.com, LOGO and Music Choice, Krista is ready to unleash a serious of remixes just in time for summer. The first remix comes from legendary New York club DJ, Johnny Vicious, whose collaboration with Kristine W, "Fade," currently holds the #1 spot on Billboard's Dance Chart. Johnny gives the party anthem his signature treatment, transforming it into an instant club hit. "I felt the energy from Krista's vocals and knew that if I found the right sounds and patterns and kept the energy level up in the dance version that it would be perfect for a remix," explains Johnny.

Says Krista, "Hypnotized" is about taking the situations that get me down, like a break up with a boyfriend, and saying 'f**k it, let the music take control and let's have fun because life's too short.'

The record lands in stores this week through Suburban Noize Records and burns with sticky musical chemistry from Glasses Malone, Murs and Mistah FAB, King Gordy, Ill Bill, and Slaine.
 
"We got a whole Potluck movement going on across the country. If someone doesn't know about Potluck they just don't know what’s been happening on the underground. We've been doing nationwide tours and selling units by being out on the road and in people's faces." commented 1 Ton.

UnderRated handles most of the production and has produced tracks for many top 200 billboard albums.  They are both multi-talented artists, they are DJ’s, rappers, and avid hip-hop junkies.  The group has spent the last four years on the road consistently performing for hip-hop diehards all across the globe on tours with Tech N9ne, La Coka Nostra, a 40-date co-headlining tour with platinum rappers D12, and most recently the group was seen on the Strange Noize Tour with Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun and Saigon.

Thurz Hints at U-N-I Break-Up on Latest Single "Prayer"

"everyone’s asking about U-N-I/plain and simple/didn’t see eye to eye/I’m sorry to the fans disappointed/but I’ve been walking a new road feeling anointed…”

In response to a groundswell of speculation, Yannick “Thurz” Koffi addresses rumors surrounding the break-up of the Award-winning hip-hop duo U-N-I on the introspective and semi-autobiographical track "Prayer." The song will appear on Thurz’s awaited debut solo album L.A.
