Although I am not the biggest MGK fan, the features on this track stood out and so I swallowed my pride and gave it a listen. With a catchy hook, great sample (“I Need a Dollar” the theme song from Kid Cudi’s HBO show How to Make it in America), and a great supporting cast; this song surpassed my expectations. Definitely worth a listen. Enjoy.
Diplo has taken a break from posting about the new Daft Punk album, Random Access Memories, on his Twitter and Facebook to release his new remix of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Can’t Hold Us. In this edition of the popular Hip-Hop song, Macklemore’s lyrics take a backseat to the phenomenal vocals of Ray Dalton. Combine these powerful vocals with typical Major Lazer bass-heavy, drum machine claps, this song is a trap jam that will turn any party into a rowdy and rambunctious function.

The Black Hippy crew recently released a new remix to Rocko’s single ‘U.O.E.N.O.”, which premiered in the “good kid, m.a.a.d city” World Tour promo yesterday. Going in off the top, you already know how they did.
After performing the song at several shows since March, Earl officially releases “Guild,” a gritty cut, with noticeably lowered voice pitches, to be featured on his upcoming project, Doris. With the release of “Chum,” “Woah,” and “Guild,” it looks like Doris is shaping up to be very well-worth the wait.
Bassnectar has not released an EP since the Freestyle Mixtape in the Fall but I feel like one is right around the corner, in the mean time, he keeps releasing snippets of songs he has done and the latest is absolutely absurd, in the good sense. Primus has released a Deluxe Edition of Sailing in the Seas of Cheese and on it is Bassnectar’s “Here Come the Bastards” remix. The song is almost violent in nature as it hits excessively hard, but Bassnectar sticks to his script of luring the listener in with the lyrics and soft singing and then releasing the energy filled bass drop. Enjoy the preview below:
Since the release of their debut mixtape, Indigoism, fans have been desperately awaiting new material from Beast Coast’s The Underachievers.
