Callie Reiff’s CLUBHOUSE collab with Dapp, “Wobble,” brought a hyper dose of fun to Summer ’16. But why stop there? After celebrating the release with a Dancing Astronaut livestream party (complete with surprise Brillz b2b Ghastly set), she’s enlisted a massive #wobblecrew of remixers to go crazy on the tune; grab their results (and the original track stems!) for free download now as a BitTorrent bundle.
A-Trak has teamed back up with Tommy Trash for “Lose My Mind,” a feel-good, satin jacket jam for our crazy times. These DJ heroes have slowed down the tempo and turned up the bump, ticking all boxes for “joy” in the process: distorted bass riffs, vintage vocals, and a Travolta-worthy disco strut. No straight jacket required!
PYRITE RADIO returns! Fresh slaps, deep cuts and hot nonsense courtesy of Nick Catchdubs and friends at the Fool’s Gold store in Brooklyn. This week we learn about Pokemon on Metropolitan Ave and 50 Cent’s car, while Meyhem Lauren stops in on a break from tour to talk about his rap catalogue, fine silks, and graceful dance moves. Play loud… Read More
Leaf, Lil Yachty, and a gang of girlfriends from her MBM (Magnet Bitch Movement) crew bounce through a technicolor NYC in the new video for “Nada” (directed by Matt Cohen / Itsbongoboy®). It’s more than just a night out… as Leaf puts it, “this video is about all types of women in New York coming together. You don’t have to be any specific type of girl to be part of MBM. Just be independent – ‘a woman who can provide,’ as Yachty states – and haters can’t say anything to you.” Pull up the jeep and join them!
Summer isn’t over yet! LNDN DRGS hoo ride into the dog days with Burnout 2, a seamless mix of the ice-cold, modern day funk they’re known for. Compton rapper Jay Worthy and Vancouver producer Sean House continue to pour up in the spirit of their debut Fool’s Gold LP Aktive, with a welcome guestlist (from Lench Mob OG Dazzie Dee to Queens’ Meyhem Lauren) and five new tracks of warped cassette-worthy loops and trunk rattling low end. Download it for free (along with Burnout 1!) here. Check the tracklist after the jump.
There’s nowhere in the universe like Atlanta. Home to dungeon families and magic cities, dirty Sprite and Coca Cola corporate. It’s where Reese-rapper, skater, pop culture sponge-grew up and still calls home. He’s showcased his unique view of the world on mixtapes and underground favorites; now, in advance of his debut Fool’s Gold release, Reese drops the free TRL EP (produced by Matic Lee), featuring three awesomely warped takes on flip-phone era rock hits. Check out the premiere of “Like A Chump” on i-D.
Leaf continues to make moves while her haters do “Nada.” The young Fool’s Gold / RPM MSC starlet continues to boss up with single after single, this time flexing with ATL’s Lil Yachty on a melodically icy, Henny-smooth collaboration. Get on this wave early…
