It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from the independent duo, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Their careers took off exponentially after their debut studio album, The Heist, released in 2012. Since then, they have fallen off the radar. For those who know Macklemore past Thrift Shop and Same Love, know his songs are enticing with raw and honest lyrics mixed with Ryan Lewis’s unique beats.

“Impression of You” by Giraffage & Viceroy

293534c9-bb47-478d-8506-691e5d76b89eDay-dreamy croons and an R&B ambience is the brilliant personality behind “Impression Of You”.

While neither producer is a novice to the scene, this track marks each artist’s debut on Dim Mak.

Having won praise from taste-making publications such as Pitchfork and Vogue, the sound sculpting beat guru that is Giraffage has collaborated with Viceroy to bring us this sultry sonic cocoon within their vocal-driven ballad, featuring Patrick Baker’s lovelorn lyrics floating over pulsating synths, tight 808 snares and fast looped hats. Pristine production.

Let me introduce you to a guy who has been making some big waves across the blog world with his remixes and originals, he goes by the name Benj. Today he brings us his remix of Omarion’s track “Post To Be”, which has been a staple on urban radio as of late. Benj’s fresh wordplay brings back memories from when I first started following the music blog scene, a time where I was listening to some of the earliest projects from artists like Mike Stud and Logic. This may be the first track I’ve listened to from Benj, but after hearing this guy’s flow he will definitely be on my radar from now on! [Read more…]

“Dance On Me” by GoldLink

dance on me

Ever since I was able to see GoldLink perform live as an opener to Flume’s performance at Terminal 5 last year, I’ve been hooked to his style and lyricism that keeps him in front of the hip-hop pack. If his raw talents weren’t enough to showcase his uniqueness, he was recently just named as a part of XXL’s 2015 Freshman class.

As evident on “Dance On Me,” the fluidity in his vocals and his ability to perfectly complement the instrumentals is what makes him addicting to listen to. Currently, he’s embarking on his 2015 summer tour, which will be kicking off in Brooklyn tomorrow.

“The Hills” by The Weeknd

TheWeeknd-TheHills

“The Hills” follows The Weeknd’s highly successful tune off of The 50 Shades of Grey Soundtrack, “Earned it”. His sensual new single utilizes heavy synth and deep bass to accompany his distinguished falsetto. The depth and contrast creates a sense of affliction and enigma. The video (below) embodies the mood of the tune as it begins with him crawling out of his car after it flips over. The rest of the video is him limping to his destination, an eerie, old mansion.
