“I just tried to make Part 2 pick up where the first one left off without missing a beat. I had a lot of fun with this project I just hope its as fun of a listen as it was to record”. - S.P.E.C. Dolla
Nearly 3 years after the release of the original S.P.E.C. Dolla (formally known as Spectacula) brings you "Classical Muzik Part 2." with production from V.I., Bad News, Clockwise, The Alchemist & S.P.E.C. Dolla.
S.P.E.C. brings new life to classics by marrying a modern day approach of beat making to the original samples of hip hop songs from legends such as Nas, 2Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, DMX, Biz Markie and many more.

MP3: Deca - "Due Time"

MP3: Deca - "Due Time"

Courtesy of Rapperfriends.

Being a traveler never hurts for inspiration. Ask Deca. Coming from the mountains of Colorado, relocating to LA and now finding a home in Queens NY,he is not short of a hip hop story line. A beatsmith that rhymes with Denver street mentality is not the exact person you'd expect to land the cover of XXL next month, but the element of surprise may beg you to differ. Behind the MPC/Mic for 13 years telling tales of boom bap with lines like "My man was in the parking lot doped up, He nodded out and never woke up," send chills down the average listeners spine. Having opened up for the likes of Talib Kweli, Blackalicious, and Redman, and rocking crowds over his own production will soon put him in the ranks as Havoc of Mobb Deep and Black Milk. NYC seems to bring the flavor out of every artist that comes here, and with a new life and a new home,his sell produced introduction to the world with "Due Time" proves he is here at the right time.

MP3: Sonnymoon - "Yes" (Beyonce Cover)

Pitchfork: "Sonnymoon, a duo from Boston, have an intuitive knack for merging a strong melody with loose grooves and sleek textures." - Matthew Perpetua

Giantstep: "The futuristic electro-soul duo Sonnymoon have come out from the lab to sprinkle a little of their fairy dust on us."

The electronic 'cosmic soul' duo Sonnymoon, made up of Anna Wise on vocals and Dane Orr on production, present us today with a remix of Beyonce's "Yes" from 2003's Dangerously In Love . The song keeps intact the strong R&B melodies of the original, but adds in the coos of Anna's assertive, yet dreamy voice and the celestial frequencies of Dane's production.

(MP3 Download) Sonnymoon - "Yes" (Beyonce Cover): .

A little over a year ago, Sonnymoon released a remix of Drake's "Houstatlantavegas." With no pr team or label, and without even their first public gig under their belt, the track quickly spread. In a matter of months, over 40k fans had listened to and shared the track giving Sonnymoon the beginnings of a completely organic fan base and putting their career into motion.

Sonnymoon then released their stellar free EP Golden Age of original music to high acclaim and were quickly thereafter signed to Plug Research. Plug Research, a staple in the evolving electronic scene in L.A., give artists full creative and artistic expression resulting in highly engaging and groundbreaking music. Previous releases on the label include Bilal's Airtight's Revenge, Quadron's self-titled debut, Flying Lotus' 1983 and Exile's Radio.

Free Music Friday: Ridin' Dirty on 8-5 Edition

Seriously, I feel like a dealer ridin' dirty on 85, with coke in the trunk and cops in the rear mirror. Because I'm giving away so many free music this week, I can swear that six of them are probably illegal! So before the R-I-Double A decides to raid in my momma's house and confiscate my laptop and hard drive, know that it's been nice knowing y'all on FMF! FMF to the DEATH (or at least until all of the artists decide to charge).

Chris Brown :: Boy in Detention

"Um, this ain't a RAP mixtape! This is Chris Brown, dude!" Um, if you listen you'll see that it IS a rap mixtape! Chris Brown decides to take a hand in rapping and he's doing it seriously, as evident by appearacnes and productions from Kevin McCall, 9th Wonder, Big K.R.I.T. and Shawty Mane. Yes, the Shawty Mane, who's also known as JUSTIN BIEBER! Yes, even the Bieb' raps and he go swag like Jack Swagger himself (Ugh, may "swag" R.I.P. soon).

Mr Flix is a South London based artist who grew up on Hip Hop from an early age. Whilst many around him worshipped the commercial scene, Flix stayed true to the foundations of real hip hop, drawing influence from the likes of Jedi Mind Tricks and Immortal Technique. Now he looks set to write his own chapter in the musical world, with insane flows and metaphors which would leave Mensa scratching their heads, he is about to arrive and stay for good. There is no doubting that Mr. Flix is all up in the mix!

Debuting on the scene with his Stealf produced EP "Conceptualized Deceit", it seems that Mr. Flix is already going from strength to strength. The EP features Loop Genius & Roskrypz, as well as New York rapper St Laz. Flix looks set to blow as he has a busy schedule planned for the rest of 2011, with further releases expected. With a number of established artists already said to be ready to collab with Mr Flix, it looks as though this is just the beginning for an artist who just simply wants to make authentic Hip Hop.
