Tyler, The Creator — “Tron Cat”

29 Apr


Here’s one of the first glimpses we get into the highly anticipated LP, Goblin (besides “Yonkers” and “Sandwitches” which were released much earlier on as a single). You might recognize this song from the teaser site, buffalo-bill.net.

Be sure to pick up a copy of Goblin May 10th.

Skrillex remix of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”

27 Apr


Although he has unfortunately announced that his laptop and harddrive containing his new album was stolen, Skrillex at least has something positive for his fans.

Just a minute ago, Skrillex uploaded to his facebook an early version of his brand new song “Died This Way.” He did not upload it to youtube, but he claims it is his work.

XV in the studio with Just Blaze and Seven — “When We’re Done”

27 Apr

Life + Times graces us with wonderful visual coverage of the making of the third track from XV’s album, “When We’re Done.” As I mentioned in an earlier post about XV, this song has some unique sampling, and this video does a great job guiding us through the process that these top-notch producers/artists went through to make this great tune. Hit the jump to take a look:

Teebs – “Pretty Polly”

27 Apr

One of the strongest in Brainfeeder’s arsenal, California-native Teebs has just brought us a new track called “Pretty Polly.”

In this piece, Teebs twists a J. Rocc mix into a precious ballad with equally graceful and polished rhythms. Although the artist has announced that the official release of this song is still a ways away, I am more than content laying my head back and letting this track lull me into its brilliance.

Although these may not be the official visuals, I chose this video because it matches the tone of the song nicely

Feed Me releases a new Nero remix and gives his fans a preview of his upcoming EP

27 Apr


Feed Me has been hard at work since his Mau5trap debut EP, Feed Me’s Big Adventure sold incredibly well on Beatport.

He has since performed on the main stage at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival and put out various singles and remixes such as the remix to Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend.”

Now Feed Me has a new remix…this time it is of Nero’s “Innocence.”

Another gift that Feed Me gave his fans recently is a teaser for each of the songs on his upcoming 4-track EP, Feed Me to the Stars. So far, this EP is sounding fantastic, incorporating some electro house, some dubstep, even some breaks. It’ll be nice to hear the full versions of each of these songs.

Here is a longer clip of the title track “To the Stars,” being performed by Feed Me at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival.

New music video for Flux Pavilion’s “Bass Cannon”

27 Apr

Not too much to say here. Everyone knows that Flux Pavilion has a great influence over the modern age of dubstep. Everyone also knows that his recent single, “Bass Cannon,” is one of the hardest hitting dubstep song ever created. Just take a look at the goofy video below. You’ll also see his Circus Records partner, Doctor P make an appearance.

Star Slinger’s refix of “Ready for the World”

27 Apr

Keeping in harmony with his recent production, Star Slinger is back with another tune to add to his repertoire of great remixes. This time, he put his unique spin on “Ready for the World” by How to Dress Well. The thing that has truly hooked me about Star Slinger’s style is his amazing ability to preserve the authenticity of a song while adding his elegant, refined sound. This Manchester magician deserves praise:

Clipse with Tiron, Nickelus F, and Phil Ade at University of Virginia

27 Apr

Just last Saturday, Push T and Malice had a homecoming reunion concert at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Clipse, a duo composed of these two talented brothers, has not seen too much action in the past couple years, but after Pusha T’s moves with Kanye and G.O.O.D. Music late last year, and subsequent release of Fear of God, it is safe to say that the group got its swag back. Along with the likes of  D.C. native, Phil Ade, and Richmond artist Nickelus F, this Old Dominion supergroup was set to return in style.

I must give props to UVa’s Student Hip Hop Organization for publicizing and putting together such a big concert. Anyways, they provided us with an interesting video that captures the essence of the night, and shows us what Clipse and these fellow Virginians are all about: meaningful, responsive, and just plain good rap.
