MP3: Marc Antoni - "Minor Setbacks (Freestyle)"


From J. Melo:

MP3: Marc Antoni - "Minor Setbacks (Freestyle)"

A real emcee from the east coast, Marc has some incredible talent. His forthcoming "Overnight" EP will be entirely produced by The Trackslayerz (T.I. "I'm Back") and J Cardim (Joe Budden, etc). Features will come from Laws, Smoke DZA, Theo Martins and more.

"Overnight" (EP) will be hosted by DJBooth as they were wow'ed by his talent when we submitted it to them.

Here goes a little appetizer before the EP arrives. The perfect introduction to his rhyming ability, Marc Antoni attacks Jay-Z's "Dead Presidents" instrumental on his own take, "Minor Setbacks." Enough talk, let the music speak for itself.

About The 808 Experiment

The 808 Experiment is an annual compilation produced entirely by SMKA. In just three years the series has become a popular, and anticipated, project in the hip-hop community. The strength of the series rests on the range of the artists, as well as the quality and variety of the music. What started – in 2008 – as a local mixtape (Winner of Creative Loafing’s Best Local Mixtape of the Year) to highlight Atlanta MC’s, The 808 Experiment quickly expanded to incorporate talented artists from all across the US. With so many talented artists throughout the hip-hop community, we felt the project would suffer if we limited ourselves to one city. Each year we hope to work with a new group of artists who are among the most talented in their respective areas. The 808 Experiment: Vol 3 is the continued evolution of the series, and this year we wanted to showcase a cross section of hip-hop. The free compilation features nearly 40 different artists, and truly demonstrates the range and talent of producer 808 Blake of SMKA.

Free EP: Ace Reporter - Arcadia EP

Brooklyn Singer Releases Fourth EP From Song-a-Day Project

The EP:

Arcadia: a place where everything is perfect and nothing ever happens.

Brooklyn artist Ace Reporter is back and excited to offer listeners auditory escape with the Arcadia EP. The EP is the fourth and final in a series of releases showcasing handpicked tracks from the multi-faceted singer's threesixfive project, a dauntingly industrious project that found Ace writing and recording an original song for the entirety of 2010. Where most may have taken a sonic sabbatical after such an arduous challenge, Ace has not only spent the infancy of 2011 re-mastering and re-imagining threesixfive tracks, but also recently played a triumphant debut show at Brooklyn's Cameo Gallery. Three more shows in the NYC area are on the horizon including an April 21st release party for the Arcadia EP at The Delancey.

The journey to Arcadia begins with the hypnotic guitar strums of the title track that steadily sashay into a cascading collection of vocals and instrumentation. "The song," explains Ace, "is about movement without change. It's about being in a place of infinite naïveté." The garden party of "Arcadia" makes its way into the forests of Manhattan in "Stick To", where a distorted organ serves as the undercurrent for a track infused with the energy of a NYC night. Arcadia continues with a succession of coast to coast collaborations – Brooklyn's Swingset Committee (facebook.com/pages/Swingset-Committee/60479339076) serve up a kinetic storm of synthesizers on their infectious remix of "Lean Honey Lean", and left coast compatriots Barbara (www.wearebarbara.com) transform "The World Is On Fire" into an electro anthem from the future. "Pelican" finds Ace channeling his inner Thom Yorke as he battles a vocoder and a shadowy beat concocted by frequent collaborator Chris Kuklis. The digital release of the Arcadia EP also features a re-imagining of Arcade Fire's "We Used to Wait", where soaring violins effortlessly interlace with Ace's disarming vocals. Download the EP for free today and join Ace Reporter on his voyage to Arcadia.

Mixtape: Camp Lo & Pete Rock's "80 Blocks From Tiffany's"


From Trackstar the DJ:

Mixtape: Camp Lo & Pete Rock's "80 Blocks From Tiffany's"

Download at Camplo.net or Mediafire

Quoth TSS:

"With 2011’s first quarter coming to a close, it’s time to put down the Kanye and the Saigon turn your ears and anticipation to a loaded Spring of Hip-Hop. To get you in the mood, TSS is proud to present the official mixtape for the upcoming Pete Rock and Camp Lo’s summer album, 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s with Trackstar the DJ and DJ Mark Divita backing the project.

This tape does double duty. It reminds us of Camp Lo’s sometimes slept-on lyrical talent while serving hardcore fans with appetizers off the forthcoming full-length. Trackstar’s blends of timeless beats from the Mecca and the Soul Brother days mesh perfectly with Camp Lo a cappellas unearthed from deep within the crates. Previously leaked singles of the full-length, “Mic Check” and the freestyle “Jimmy Page,” form the foundation of the tape and even if “Mic Check” won’t make it onto your local radio, it still deserves a trip through your car speakers.

While we await the full length project, this mixtape will serve as a reminder of things past and a preview of future dopeness.  Enjoy."

Bonus: New Rockwell Knuckles album, "You're Fxckin Out, I'm Fxckin In"

Jay Electronica. Dr Dre. Rockwell Knuckles.

Some artists do things on their own schedule, happy to let anticipation build up before releasing new material when it’s just right, and not a moment before. It’s been over a year since Choose Your Own Adventure, but You’re F*ckin Out, I’m F*ckin In is worth the wait. Rockwell’s approach to a release schedule may be unconventional, but the results are undeniable–he wrecks thirteen beats in a wide range of tempos and textures, with guest appearances from Tef Poe, Vandalyzm and Theresa Payne. There’s more on the horizon, too–expect the upcoming collaborative EP with Tef to be available before Act III.
