I have recently discovered the bass heavy tunes of XYconstant, and I can tell you that they are off the chain. Hailing from the UK, Alfred Coleman has only been active on soundcloud for about six months. A lot of people find their fill of bass music in trap music nowadays, but this is for those of you who love the ambient bass sound. It would be a dance floor killer, like a subaquatic fantasy land. Check it out and his other stuff on his sound cloud page here.
HUGE news for all of you old school hip-hop fans. Atmosphere is finally back and they’re coming out with a new album. Here is the first single off of their upcoming album entitled “Bitter.” It’s not my favorite from them, but that’s only because nothing could ever top their classics from back in the day. As a long time fan, I’m eager to hear more singles off of the album and hope they don’t keep us waiting too much longer. Southsiders is expected to release May 6th, so be sure to mark that date down in your calendar.
Later last night and earlier this morning more and more Skrillex tracks were popping up. It began with his song on the Divergent soundtrack and with the release of his little mobile arcade game called Alien Ride. I’ve played it and it’s pretty fun. Anyways, we have a new album on the way… coming out next week. Love these surprise drops and short waits. You can stream the entire album from some beauty in Canada. Don’t expect it to be up there for long but you can pre-order the album here. I’ve listened to it. It’s dope. Skrillex has adapted a serious love for the style down in Jamaica and his collaboration with hip hop but that certainly doesn’t mean he’s lost any of his potency. The 11 song album is beautiful and it’ll rip apart your ears. He has also announced his 2014 Mothership Tour dates. It contains 19 shows with artists Dillon Francis, DJ Snake, What So Not, and Milo & Otis. Holy balls… more info after the jump.
Official Release Date: March 18th, 2014
Two nights ago Pusha T came thru Oxford, OH looking for strippers and cocaine. What he got was pretty much the same thing with coked out frat kids and some of Miami’s finest honeys. The G.O.O.D. Music signee hit up the stage for a little over an hour playing hit after hit from his new album My Name Is My Name. What made the show awesome was that he even got around to playing joints from Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Tiwsted Fantasy like “So Appalled” and “Runaway”… and what would be a Pusha T performance be without the remix to “I Don’t Like”? Yah he played that too. Hitting his Fear Of God material and even some songs from his ‘Clipse’ days, this show was out of control. While Pusha T and his team were flawless, I can’t say the same for the crew at Brick Street in Oxford. Pusha had to stop the show several times to get the sound fixed… smh. Figure it out Brick, this isn’t 90′s night. Wouldn’t be surprised if the sound guy ends up dead somewhere. Overall, Pusha T is hitting several more cities throughout the rest of March and if he’s near you then it’d be a good move to go see him. He’s one of the legends of hip hop and his energy is first-class.
For all of you who don’t know who this man is, check out the video above which features him in Future’s song called “Move That Dope”. The song is off Future’s album called Honest set to drop April 22nd and has one of the best Pharrell verses I’ve ever heard. You can also watch more Pusha T videos here. G.O.O.D. Music.
Converse every once in awhile recruits different kinds of artists to collaborate together to make something cool. R&B Odd Future superstar Frank Ocean works his vocals in with the help of The Clash members Mick Jones and Paul Simonon to match up with the electronic production from our boi Diplo. Mike & Paul worked on a similar venture with The Gorillaz a few years ago. How Converse let them get away with such a short song is beyond me. Pretty cool song, make sure you check it out.
“Working with Mick and Paul was a dream come true, add in Frank, it got even better,” said Diplo. “The experience was just totally awesome.”
Martin Garrix has dropped a massive gift for his fans. Essentially, since he’s had a killer year in releases and chart-topping tracks, he’s willing to giveaway his newest track “Proxy” for free. Like most of Garrix’s big room sounds, this one does something a little different from the normal sounds that are being pushed out by big room artists. He’s always striving to find the next big sound, and he’s doing pretty well in that department.
