As the profane gospel of Danny Brown spreads around the globe, more and more good reviews and pieces keep coming in. (You know we like to recap these!) Check out this great feature from the new issue of Spin (“half battle-scarred street rapper, half Station to Station-era David Bowie”) as well as their Day Off-centric blog post (“Danny Brown’s a guy worth rooting for”), and then see what Fact Magazine had to say about XXX (“completely honest, unrestrained and unmannered…essential listening”). And if you haven’t downloaded the album already to judge for yourself…what are you waiting for?
For more Danny, check his guest appearance on the Das Racist album (out now on iTunes – check them on tour this month) and a massive posse cut remix of Mr Muthafuckin Exquire’s “Huzzah!” that’s a secret track on Exo’s new Lost In Translation release with Mishka.
Last week we threw our second annual DAY OFF party in New York City, joined by a few thousand of our friends. Like the last one, only bigger and crazier, it was an amazing day and night, featuring performances from Juicy J, Danny Brown, the Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1), Just Blaze, Cubic Zirconia, Party Supplies, Nick Catchdubs and very special guests ASAP Rocky and DJ Mehdi.
Go download the new What’s Poppin mixtape by Hot 97’s own Peter Rosenberg for Popchips, featuring new tunes from everyone from Raekwon to Kendrick Lamar to Odd Future, including our own Danny Brown and two collabs from Action Bronson and Party Supplies. Bump it…
A ton of y’all tweeted cameraphone pics of this to us throughout the weekend, but here’s a full size scan of Danny Brown, A-Trak and Party Supplies in the New York Times’ fall fashion mag, sporting some quilted menswear (hence the “Diamond Dogs” headline, that’s how print media works!) and looking tuff in A1 Records. Click the pic for a full-size version, and read the whole mag here.
Take it easy this Labor Day and come get live with us at the 2nd annual Fool’s Gold DAY OFF extravaganza, once again going down at the City Winery backyard.
