Future Brown – Room 302 (Feat. Tink)

Future Brown_All White

What do you get when you take good production, sex appeal, and a tight mc? Well, a really good party, but you also get the song “Room 302” by Future Brown and Tink.

This four piece futuristic producer group based in LA and London have linked up with one of Chicago’s top emerging vocalists Tink, to create a truly progressive song. This fresh production, teamed up with Tink’s RnB flavor, creates a smooth tune with a hint of grit to it. Future Brown’s sound has said to have taken influences from both whats going on in the London Grime scene, meanwhile combining the fresh sounds of Chicago Rap and you can hear a touch of both in the song below.

The group’s self titled full length album is set to debut on Warp February 24th, so if you dig this one get set for more to come.

DJ Professor Stone – WTF?! DJ Mix from the OMG Lounge

Just a couple weeks ago one of the North West’s most notorious music fesitvals, What The Festival?!, was going full force down in Oregon.  With dozens of top notch artists from around the world performing, it was pretty difficult to make it everywhere you wanted when you planned and often times I found myself at a stage listening to music from an artist I was previously unfamiliar with.   One of the best instances of stumbling upon a “surprise performance” was when our crew made a quick stop by the OMG Lounge and DJ Professor Stone was throwing down some heavy, bass drive, reggae inspired dubstep & trap.  There were so many jaw dropping tunes coming back to back that our original plans were immediately cancelled and the OMG Lounge was our final destination for the evening.  Representing Seattle’s, ZION GATE RECORDS, DJ Professor Stone has been around the reggae scene for several decades now, and is showing that he’s still in his prime.  His DJ set was versatile, full of heady tunes, and downright fun.   Stone had the whole dance floor quaking!  Check out this mix and feel the vibes from WTF?!!

Free Downloads From Self Evident (Vancouver BC)

 Here are some new free downloads from one of the most outstanding  producers in Vancouver, Self Evident.  You’ve heard his name before, or maybe not…either way…start clicking download! These are some of the best free tunes I’ve heard in a minute.

Caspa Ft. Mighty High Coup – ON IT [Forthcoming On Dub Police]

Whoah! I gotta say, if someone had played this for me and asked me to guess the producer I would have been waaaaay wrong.  Yes, Caspa is on his hip-hop game.  Check it! Of course, it’s a banger.  Big ups!

Ableminds – Faces Album

If any of you Ganjaology goers, are into Hip-Hop, Funk, Jazz, or Electronic, you should check these guys out. The Denver based Electronic trio go by Ableminds. They take the very over saturated electronic world and put a bit of an organic flavor to the mix. With Guitarist Jordan Linit and Bassist Charlie Mertens on the production side combined with the raw sounds of Drummer Greg Horn, the three create a very unique sound that will appeal to many. I wanted to show you guys three songs off of their debut full length album.

The first one is called “September 2nd”. If some one asked me what that day fealt like, I would tell them to listen to this song. The funky guitar riffs mixed with the arpeggiating synth get me honestly. If you take those two and mix in a groovy electronic drum pattern and an emotional melody, well… you would get this song.

The name is spot on for the second song as well. The track entitled “6 In The Morning” truly puts me at time period in my head. Its soothing enough to be an early morning song, as in playing this song on your morning commute, or playing it at 6AM after a crazy night of partying. Either way seems to work nicely in my head. Try it out. I bet you’ll dig it.

Lastly, is a more Hip-Hop based electronic track “Let It All Go”. It combines the flows of LA based rapper Deploi and the beatiful sampling of these Ableminds. Such nice vibes on this track, with a very organic approach to glitch hop.

Loving these sounds, I can’t wait to hear more.

GoldfaceMoneywatch – Yellow Planetary Suns

It’s what we’ve all been waiting for.  A GoldfaceMonewatch single. This video is dope(and on drugs)!  Gain some knowledge. Show some support. BIG UPS!  !

Death Grips – Get Got & Blackjack

Here are a couple new tracks from Deathgrips of Cali FOR NI AYE!  Their style of hip-hop is so unique and just plain different from anything else I’m hearing these days that I’m not quite sure what else to say about it. Both of these songs leave you slightly confused,  definitely wanting to hear them again, and…shit experience Get Got and Blackjack for yourself!

Thumbnugget – Codeine Ocean

“THEN I TURNED INTO A FISH THE WITH CODEINE GILLS”

Thumbnugget brings another trippy video featuring extra rare footage of Cleveland’s very own Codeine Ocean.  Enjoy.

Slynk vs Ed Solo – “I Wish”

Here’s a remix of one of my favorite old school tracks, “I Wish”. Ed Solo took this hip hop track from back in the day, and put a new electro dubby groove to it. I’ve found myself listening to more and more Ed Solo  especially after The Ganjaologist turned me on to the work he did with Krafty Kuts. His sound is unique, clean, and funky. I’ve been vibing to this song a bit lately, so checker ‘er out!

K. Flay

So I stumbled upon K. Flay’s live set like two months ago and she really stuck in my head. This 25 year old rapper from the north suburbs Chicago has some serious swag, unique flow, and producing game too! She definitely has her own style and I dig it %100. The music sounds like it has electronic and hip-hop influences, keeping nice flowing verses with good melody. She uses some crazy synth sounds and interesting drum samples to keep the music sounding nice and different as well. But enough of me talking, here’s a few videos I thought were worth taking a look at:

First, her official music video for Doctor Don’t Know:

Next, her live performance of (my personal favorite) Messin’ With My Head:

and lastly, an interview to get to know a little more about her:
