Courtesy Mello Music Group.
Has-Lo is giving away one final track off his recently released Conversation B before gearing up to release some visual support. The album has continued to gain critical praise, being called "Part of Philly's 2011 Hip-Hop Canon" by the Philadelphia Weekly.
Meanwhile fans have almost bought up all the special edition magenta vinyl (only 180 copies remain) and deluxe edition cds. For this one, Audible Doctor, who has had featured production on J-Live, Joell Ortiz, Trek Life, and Boog Brown's projects this year, reinvented the orignal Utero track from In Case I Don't Make It. So enjoy the new track: Has-Lo Reincarnate.
Orkestra Ent. releases Jon Black's new mixtape for the holidays. I Am Jon Black features songs over popular instrumentals, as well as top notch production from himself. Look out for the debut album set to be released 1st Quarter of 2012.
Video: Hollywood FLOSS - "So Much To Say" Ft. Brian Angel
Courtesy Audible Treats.
Hollywood FLOSS is back with the video for "So Much To Say," a song that features crooner Brian Angel and serves as a recent single from his latest album, One Fan At A Time. The video, directed by Rob Jay and edited by Justin Morrow, is a dedication to his love for hip hop, complete with graffiti in the back drop and mimes acting out FLOSS' lyrics throughout.
"The 'So Much To Say' video," explains FLOSS "was me venting about all the sacrifices you make for the industry. And even with all those sacrifices, the industry is unkind, but we still love the craft and attempt to be successful at it." For FLOSS, however, the industry is finally – and rightly – starting to take plenty of notice, with FLOSS recently featured by the Houston Press and nominated by the alternative weekly's Music Awards for "Best Songwriter."
MP3: Filip Filipi x Ariana Dvornik - "Dance On The World"
I've been wanting to knock out a euro dance track for a while now and young singer/actress/model Ariana Dvornik has had a lot of buzz lately so it was only right we hooked up. Ariana's fam (she's the niece of legendary Croatian singer Dino Dvornik) is actually from Dalmatia like my pops so I'd go as far as calling this a 'homie collab.' The production is again handled by the brilliant Jonathan Lee who recorded me, mixed the track and got locked out of his house and car all in the last 3 hours. The cover art was whipped up the genius some know as Marko Šejat.
Crucial Music is very proud to announce that they are now working with Melbourne artist 360 - one of Australia’s most promising and talked about up and comers. Manager ‘Rae Harvey’s Melbourne based company (home of Children Collide, Daniel Lee Kendall, Gyroscope, Hunting Grounds & The Living End) will begin representation of 360 effective immediately.
Says 360 of the new relationship: "Feeling great about working with Crucial Music and having a strong team behind me to take my career to the next level. The most important thing was having like-minded people with the same aspirations and outlook on music as me. I’m fuckin’ stoked"
Sixty has come in swinging off the back of new album ‘Falling & Flying’, which was rocketed to a #4 debut by his army of loyal and vocal followers (courtesy of Sixty’s unique reign as the king of constant social networking.) ‘Falling & Flying’ transcends the sometimes-stuffy confines of conventional hip-hop, taking cues from indie, dubstep, pop and reggae. With this record the candid but downright affable twenty-something has on his hands one of the most diverse and confident releases of 2011.
Most recent cut from the record, ‘Boys Like You’ is ostensibly a song about being dumped, but parades an overcharged dub vibe tied up by a unique hook courtesy of indie-darling Gossling. This is the kind of addictive tune that defines a summer.
Recently mobilising his army for a sold out fifteen date album tour, Sixty’s cheeky and contentious live show will command crowds at Homebake Festival, followed by the Falls Festival and on into the new year. Charging into 2012 with the same heavy-handed urgency as always, this summer is going to be a hot one for 360. Get on board or get gone.
360 TOUR DATES: Sat Dec 03 – Homebake, Sydney NSW Sat Dec 31 – Falls Festival, Lorne VIC Wed Jan 18 – Telstra Icon Store (Competition winners only) Thu Jan 19 – Rocket Bar, Adelaide SA Fri Feb 10 – Ferntree Gully Hotel, Ferntree Gully VIC Sat Feb 11 – Chelsea Heights Hotel, Chelsea VIC Sun Mar 11 – Breath of Life Festival, Launceston TAS Mon Mar 12 – Pushover, Melbourne VIC (All Ages)
360 – new album ‘Falling & Flying’ out now, featuring ‘Boys Like You’, ‘Killer’ & ‘Throw It Away’

Next week actually marks a HUGE milestone in my career, we're going to Japan baby!!
we have 5 shows set up in 7 days, and it shoud be epic. check out morebarktour.com for more.
But, I'm violating one rule that my mom always told me. She said to never go out of town without any money. Well, between ordering CD digipacks and vinyl, I forgot to heed that rule. So, if you can, if you have a few bucks laying around, feel free to donate to our HELP JAPAN fundraiser. just click on this image to help out. We'll even get you a souvenir.
Now if you know me, I just can't bring myself to keep asking for things and not give things away for free.... so, tell ya what, here's a FREE song. Since Lost Perception came through and got my PC running better than ever, I found some old Random songs that I thought were dead and gone.. I think I'll drop one of these occasionally in these email blasts. Here's one of those, a track called "Numbers Game" featuring JonBap. He and I recorded this at Lab Addicts in 2004, and I really didn't know what I was doing on the engineering side of things then, but we did have a lot of fun. Enjoy. (right click it to save it)
