Album: Run The Jewels – Run The Jewels 2

Standard

Run The Jewels 2

I’m not going to say that much about this, as I don’t think it needs it; but if you haven’t gotten into the duo of EL-P and Killer Mike, as Run The Jewels, you may need to reevaluate your decisions. As with their debut last year, Run The Jewels 2 was released for free, ahead of it’s release date and is ridiculously dope. Enjoy.

Burn Water – Wish You Were Here

Standard

Burn Water

Burn Water‘s new song, with some vocal samples from You+Me‘s Break The Cycle, seemingly unexpectedly, is an upbeat garage production, with a definite 90s vibe to it. This is a little different from his usual work, but if you’re feeling this I’d still recommend checking out everything else that has his name on it. Enjoy.

Tried an upbeat, vocal driven sound for once. Ended up sounding like the year 1998. Not sure how it happened.

Jordan Butler – Please Don’t Jump // Dust

Standard

Jordan Butler

After about a year of silence our friend Jordan Butler reveals that he has a small collection of songs, poetry and short stories that will soon be ready for the world. On both the spoken word of Dust and raps of Please Don’t Jump we are given some beautifully constructed word addresses illness, depression, death and feeling lost in a purposeless universe. All pretty deep stuff, executed to perfection. Enjoy.

Cypher – Child (Prod. by Golden Vessel)

Standard

Cypher

Golden Vessel is a familiar name on here after his remix of Japanese Wallpaper‘s Waves; it now seems that the young producer has been working with fellow Brisbanite, Cypher. The 16 year singer/songwriter floats gently across brightly crafted beats, with a voice that sounds refined and matured beyond her years. Cypher is going places. Enjoy.

Party Supplies – The Light in the Addict (feat. Action Bronson & Black Atlass)

Standard

Party Supplies – The Light in the Addict (feat. Action Bronson & Black Atlass)

With production duo, Party Supplies, set to re-release their debut album on vinyl and CD next month (will be available here, and original release can be streamed/bought here), we get a brand new track featuring Black Atlass and long time collaborator Action Bronson. These guys have really figured out what they’re doing, because Bronson and Party Supplies sound amazing together. Grab a physical copy of Tough Love from November 25. Enjoy.

QuEST – Back & More

Standard

QuEST - Back & More

Visionary Music Group is the home of Logic, Jon Bellion, and QuESt, who  has just dropped a new track. Coming off the release of Searching Sylvan, almost a month ago, QuEST grabs Jansport J to give him a smooth backdrop for Back & More. This, as well as the album, are seriously dope, so I recommend having a stream and download of Searching Sylvan if you enjoy this. Enjoy.
