Childish Gambino – Candler Road


Childish Gambino

On top of the announcement of Donald Glover‘s role as the new spiderman in an upcoming animated series his rap alias of Childish Gambino has put out a new track by the name of Candler Road. The song switches up beats and Gambino completely changes his flow half way through it what turns out to be a pretty great 3 minutes. Enjoy.

Tom Misch – Karma (feat. Loyle Carner)


Tom Misch - Karma (feat. Loyle Carner)

While this is not the first time we’ve heard Tom Misch production paired with hip hop vocals, it is the first track in quite some time that those vocals have been original. Loyle Carner comes alongside Tom on Karma and then proceeds to slide smoothly all over the chilled, soulfilled beat that is made complete with Tom‘s own singing. I love everything about this. Enjoy.

Run The Jewels – Blockbuster Night Part 1


Run The Jewels

El-P and Killer Mike are set to release a follow up to their eponymous collaborative album on October 28; if that doesn’t have you shaking with anticipation then throw on the new single Blockbuster Night Part 1 (or that superb first album) and let that do it’s work. Run The Jewels 2 will be released by Nas‘ newly founded Mass Appeal Records. This is not a release to be missed. Enjoy.

Narrow Plains – So Rewind // Keep You Anyway


Narrow Plains

2012’s Somewhere In Between in an EP that still remains in frequent rotation for me, and has been the only thing I’ve heard from the London based Narrow Plains until now. Now I can excitedly add the new single from the acoustic-folk-rock trio, and it’s accompanying B side, Keep You Anyway, to my regular listening platter. Both songs on the So Rewind single bring in some new emphases, while still maintaining that distinctive Narrow Plains sound throughout. Needless to say I’m excited for whenever their debut album comes out, and you should be too. Enjoy.

Nas vs. Flume – Made You Hold On (Carlos Serrano Mix)


Nas vs. Flume - Made You Hold On (Carlos Serrano Mix)

As he oh so often does Carlos Serrano has made some magic in pairing up the sounds of two otherwise unrelated artists. Now, we already know that infusing Flume‘s incredible production with some hip hop bars can work exceedingly well, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that tackling Nas‘ rhymes from Made You Look into Flume‘s Holdin’ On will give you the product below. Enjoy.

Statik Selektah – God Knows (feat. Bun B, Jared Evan & Posdnuos)


Statik Selektah - What Goes Around

Going through the releases of the last week you simply cannot go past God Knows off of Statik Selektah‘s upcoming album. Dedicated to Robin Williams, the emotionally jazzy production from Statik is accompanied by Bun B and Posdnuous (of De La Soul) giving some real heartfelt verses and Jared Evan channeling The Beach BoysGod Only Knows as the hook. Make sure you check out What Goes Around once it sees release on Tuesday. Enjoy.
