VIDEO: Tory Lanez – Acting Like [Prod. Shlohmo]

We’ve been dabbling in some of that Tory Lanez for a bit, but now that he’s made sweet sweet music with 3 of our addictions, namely Ryan Hemsworth, R.L Grime and now Shlohmo (all members of Wedidit) we’re officially prescribed. The video for Acting Like focuses on the obligatory glamour girl with her hair and nails on fleek posing seductively to support the intense atmosphere, but while the visuals are what we’ve come to expect from him, Tory’s voices (note he briefly flips to G-mode at 2:30) cut with the clean, crisp Shlohmo beat is even more satisfying to the eardrums and insides than we could’ve imagined. Take heed.

VIDEO: A$AP Rocky – L$D (LOVE x $EX x DREAMS)

Having just visited Tokyo, it’s trippy enough as is, so the idea of munging out on acid while absorbing the streets of Shinjuku or Shibuya sounds like the backdrop of a pretty mesmerizing music video. Roll in A$AP Rocky, who’s been busy prepping for his imminent album and tripping out his Instagram followers. L$D – which for Rakim means Love, $ex, Dreams – is unlike much of what we’ve heard from the pretty motherfucker in the last few years, but after all – the song is called L$D. He snaps out of it at 3:20 and wraps up the track with a more ‘regular’ rap, while we’re all sat here planning our next trip to (or perhaps in) Tokyo.

VIDEO: Mike WiLL Made-it ft. Swae Lee, Jace & Andrea – That God Damn (Freestyle)

Mike WiLL Made a video in an underground parking lot with his buddies Swae Lee (one half of Rae Sremmurd), Jace (of Two 9 & Retro Sushi), an entire entourage of dudes and… Andrea. Andrea? We had no idea who “Andrea” was before hearing That God Damn (Freestyle) but god damn…. we’ve got a crush. Just like the beat did and the dudes in the video did – we stopped. We still have no idea who she is and neither does Google, but let’s hope Mike WiLL Made-It makes it with her a bit more.

SPOTLIGHT: Boosie Badazz

booosi

If you’ve heard the phrase FREE BOOSIE in rap lyrics some time in the last 5 years, you might have an idea who Boosie Badazz is. By no means a newbie, the artist formerly known as Lil Boosie is currently enjoying the spotlight as a result of his recent release from the pen. With a somewhat nasal but very likeable Southern twang, Boosie has a string of pre-incarceration hits under his belt – flashback to his XXL Freshman days with 2009’s Better Believe It, and for a lesson in history – Boosie’s to blame/thank for popularizing ‘ratchet‘.

 

After a 5 year stint in prison for possessing a wee bit of weed, Boosie’s been making up for lost time. He’s been super busy since getting out, adding a nasty verse to Snootie Wild’s addictive K Camp & Jeremih-assisted Made Me remix and linking up with Too Short & YG for the remix to K Camp’s Cut Her Off.

 

Breezy & Tyga’s Real One (a track you could definitely do the ratchet to) features a Boosie verse and DJ Mustard (a.k.a the Master of Ratchet) recruited Mr Badazz for Face Down.

 

He’s been doing his own thing in the stu too; She Want Some is the ideal UFC fighter entrance song and No Juice calls out the fakes that ain’t Boosie Boo.

 

And here’s his most recent effort, the 4-day old All I Know (chorus courtesy of PJ) from his imminent album entitled Touch Down 2 Cause Hell.

REMIX!

Bryson Tiller – Set You Free [Gravez Remix]

This recently unearthed remix will turn you to a fiend girl you better be careful. Especially if you’re cruising about the city cranking it in the whip with 1 demerit point left. The Gravez remix of Bryson Tiller‘s Set You Free is a particularly nasty piece of trap work with drops galore, rendering the rendition totes appropes to turn up to.

 

While just as enjoyable but perhaps more appropes for a different kinda buzz, here’s the original sexy-smooth Ayo produced version of the Tiller track.

FRESH REMIXER: no sleep

safe_image.php

no sleep is a Pittsburger with quite the catalogue of tidy remixes under his belt. With a penchant for hip-hop anthems, his interesting interpretations have gained him notoriety, like his fresh spin on Big Poppa and a rendition of This Plane that’s just plain nasty.

 

Recently he injected a Lil Bit of BPM and enthusiasm into the chill K Camp thug anthem. He also adds a pretty epic hook to Rae Sremmurd’s This Could Be Us that’s not unlike a Nokia 5110 ringtone.

 

Rewind to last year when he reimagined the ratchet, with a heavy foot on Sage The Gemini’s Gas Pedal and no sign of slowing down on his version of Jumpin Like Jordan.

 

Like Gravez and esta just before him, this week he works his brand of magic on Bryson Tiller, choosing to butter up Break Bread with some velvety chill trap goodness.

 

If you can’t get no sleep, peep him on his Soundcloud page. More rad remixes & 40-track monthly playlists on ours!

REMIX!

Cashmere Cat ft. Ariana Grande – Adore [MssingNo Remix]

Adore features the purr of Ariana Grande, who makes an unaddressed proposal of more than friendship to the inviting beat of Cashmere Cat.

 

MssingNo gives the track a hypnotism and the result is mesmerizing. Despite the reiterated ice-cream truck melody, this remix makes Ariana’s seemingly innocent proposal now sound as if it comes with consequences.

Calvin Harris ft. Ellie Goulding – Outside [marshmello Remix + Royalty Remix]

We still have no idea who marshmello is, but we do like his/her/their super kawaii remix of Calvin Harris’ radio hit Outside, which has Ellie Goulding sounding adorably chipmunkish.

 

Ellie’s voice remains more intact but Royalty add some goodie goodie gum drops to their rendition, giving it just the right amount of doof to satisfy those of us that need a bit of bass.

 

Sounding tame in comparison, here’s the music video for the original track, by the richest DJ in all the land & his ex Mrs.

FRESH PRODUCER: Lido

Screen-Shot-2014-04-29-at-19.38.251-900x325

Lido – formerly Norwegian popstar LidoLido – is also quite the epic producer & remixer. Lido was responsible for the digibeat on Liz’s Y2K and co-produced Cold alongside Alison Wonderland;

Brimming with remixes, his Soundcloud includes an upbeat take on  Timberlake’s T.K.O and a chirpy version of The Weeknd’s Often;

 

He’s been doing some Social Experiment-ing of late, warming up the old vocal chords alongside Chance The Rapper & Towkio for Heaven Only Knows and then reinterpreting Jeremih’s Planes, with the addition of a Chano verse;

 

He could just sing on his beats but for Lost he teams up with fellow Scandinavian pop alumni Muri and the gorgeous Halsey for Slow.

 

And not so long ago he collabbed with Canblaster, dropping this here EP.

VIDEO: Mike Regal – Keep Smoking

Having already made a beat or two, producer Mike Regal drops some bars in his new video for Keep Smoking. The fit-for-the-title visual follows quite the posse bopping around to the soon-to-be released Regal stoner jam, in which the Miltown Beatdown king of kings shows he can write, rap and rock a pair of Lennon shades just as good as he can drop a beat.

So without further ado, take heed of the advice contained within the tracks title and press play.
