Donnis takes club rap back to the future with his Break Hundreds & Hearts EP, a new-school bass masterpiece from an ATLien who grew up listening to the South’s legendary Dungeon Family lyricists and 2 Live Crew party starters in equal measure. Grab it now on iTunes!
From the floor-ratlling “Money Maker” and “Hello Kitty” to the insane strip club chant “Dog On The Floor,” wildly catchy sing along “Every Damn Day,” and pure rhyme workout “Absolutely” (featuring like-minded young MCs IAMSU and Jay Ant – peep the video above!), Break Hundreds & Hearts shows off new dimensions of Donnis’ signature sound. Pop the trunk, turn up the bump, and keep Freaknik alive… Read More
World champion DJ and Slow Roast co-founder Craze is back with the hotly-anticipated “Selekta,” already a DJ favorite and instant summer jam. The original is a bass-laced moombahton anthem, expertly crafted and aimed directly for the dancefloor (and your girl’s pants). Craze enlisted his bros for remixes, and they just happen to be some of the most exciting young’uns in the game: JWLS cranks up the lasers while screwing the tempo, Jay Fay turns in a super catchy, handclap fueled electro house mix, Valentino Khan cranks up the acid to jack your body, and ETC!ETC! and LeDoom trap it out perfectly to close out the EP. There’s a mix here for every selekta, don’t sleep! Get it now on iTunes, Beatport and all other fine digital retailers.
The latest FOOLCAST features nothing but productions from Cardo, the peerlessly funky young producer who helped craft Wiz Khalifa’s smoked out sound on the beloved Kush & OJ and Taylor Allderdice mixtapes, and is gearing up to release his debut Fool’s Gold EP, Everything I$ Gold.
Cardo’s production resume reads like a Who’s Who of hip-hop’s rising stars, and his FOOLCAST shows off 90 minutes of our favorites from his discography. It’s equal parts gangsta soul music, futuristic synthesizer trips, and unstoppable 808 bump, an awesomely region-less hybrid inspired by DJ Quik and Pimp C classics but rightfully belonging to one dude alone… Cardo on the beat!
A boy becomes a man like never before to the tune of Style Of Eye’s “Ray Dee Oh,” featuring Gina Turner. Mazel tov! “Ray Dee Oh” is out now on iTunes, Beatport, and everywhere else fine digital music is sold. Get it…

The response to A-Trak’s “Money Makin’” DJ routine was so positive that he’s turning it into a regular scratch series, called Short Cuts. The latest track to get wicki wicki’d is none other than Deadmau5′s “Ghosts N’ Stuff.” Timely!
