Gang Colours aka Will Ozanne brings us into his hushed dream-like state for his live performance of "Fancy Restaurant," the lead single from his debut album The Keychain Collection, out now via Brownswood Recordings. When reviewing the album, Pitchfork wrote that for this track, "Ozanne's gorgeous piano melody tumbles through the gauntlet of electronic noises gracefully, like water trickling down a knotted cliff face." The minimalist video provides a quiet backdrop for the piano-driven song and vocals. Laid over a repeating piano motif Will sings, "I know you don't care that much about money / I'm going to make someone take you out." The song gently hypnotizes.
"Flash & Flare", produced by The Jake (1/2 of the production team The Accomplices), is the last release from e.d.g.e.'s upcoming "Destroy & Rebuild" mixtape presented by themadbloggers.com, the9elements.com and flydefinition.com.
Over The Jake's soulful production, e.d.g.e. narrates a cautionary tale of monetary obsession which leads to personal downfall. "Destroy & Rebuild" is on the way...
Here is the brand single from mixtape deejay and Hip-Hop producer Infamous DJ Haze. This features four heavyweight US emcees including Joell Ortiz from Slaughterhouse, Nipsey Hussle, Cassidy & Dro Pesci. This track is already causing a stir in the American Hip-Hop community and now it's time to give this the push it needs to make it a worldwide Hip-Hop anthem! Let's get behind this and consider for review or airplay!
MP3: Casely 'The New Prince of the South' - "Keep"
The "New Prince of the South" is back at it again. Casely's newest offering entitled "Keep" discusses the intense pain of loss & heartbreak. Borrowing the sounds from Skrillex, with Casely's melodic vocals & the angelic voice of Ellie Goulding, this joint is infectious & an undeniable smash.
Bronx veteran Tribeca, brings into the studio the legendary duo of Camp Lo, along with rising Boston MC, M-Dot for this new leak "True Lies" (off Tribeca's The Pookie Syndrome mixtape: dropping this summer). What stands out on this high energy conceptual track, is the pass-off verse/ad-lib feel which carries all the way through (rarely seen in an internet age of send-in verses). Music video COMING SOON!
