Mashup of the Day: “Pickin You Up”

September 30th, 2010 by | Mashup |

This is a very unique mashup as it doesn’t really sound much like a mashup. M&D; decided to sample the theme song from Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh which is sung by Drake Bell. Then Wale and Drake are in it and their part’s are older material but still really good.

I really like Wale, the Drake Bell song is a dirty pleasure of mine (the song is catchy!), and Drake is really good when he’s not singing.

Fressh Kidd – “Discover Me” (Featuring Mikey French)

September 30th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

Some of you may have heard this song and some may not know who Fressh Kidd even is. However, he is quite a talent. I stumbled upon his song “Discover Me” (featuring Mikey French) a few months ago when I was on YouTube looking for new Kid Cudi music. Since then, it is on non-stop play on my phone. His sound is similar to Kid Cudi’s old style of music and is another laid back and relaxing track. I hope you enjoy it! Fressh Kidd – Discover Me (featuring Mikey French) by Evanwish1

Nottz & Asher Roth – “Dontcha Wanna Be (My Neighbor)” featuring Colin Munroe

September 30th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap |

Asher Roth has been coming out with many new tracks recently. He has been working closely with Nottz a lot as well and their song “Dontcha Wanna Be (My Neighbor)” featuring Colin Munroe is the newest song of theirs to hit the streets. It has the typical Asher Roth relaxing feel to it and is really nice to kick back and smoke a blunt to. Enjoy!

Kanye West – Lost In The World ft. Bon Iver

September 30th, 2010 by | Alternative/Indie, Hip-Hop/Rap |

This is a really interesting track. It builds slow and then picks up to something really awesome, almost epic. I can’t describe how awesome this track sounds, it’s almost like Kanye’s “Love Lockdown” but less weird, longer, and more interesting.

Feature by Bon Iver, who claims to have worked on several tracks with Kanye West for Mr. West’s upcoming album, Dark Twisted Fantasy, coming out November 16.  Kanye West – Lost In The World ft. Bon Iver

Chiddy Bang: “Young Blood” remix + “Bad Boy” off The Preview

September 30th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |
I love The Naked & Famous single “Young Blood”, and I love Chiddy Bang. So when I heard a few weeks ago that Xaphoon Jones would remix the song with Chiddy on the mic, I got super excited. I even thought of a word Neil Patrick Harris says in the American sitcom How I Met Your Mother that begins with a “L” and ends in “dary”. Don’t want to jinx it though.

Well Chiddy Bang performed that song in New Zealand (where The Naked & Famous are from) and the video above is of the performance, including Chiddy doing a stage dive.

I couldn’t do a CB post without giving you a song from The Preview, CB’s upcoming EP dropping October 12 in the US. Here’s “Bad Boy”, which samples Darwin Deez’s “Bad Day” and features Theodore Grams on the CB version; it’s an interesting blend of electro/hip-hop/rock. Bang – “Bad Day” (Feat. Theodore Grams and Darwin Deez)

Hidden Gem: Gilbere Forte’

September 30th, 2010 by | Dance, Hidden Gem, Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Gilbere Forte’ was born in Flint, Michigan, moved to Chicago, then moved to Philadelphia where he pursued a career in music by attending Temple University. Above is his single off his debut album which I will get to later. 

The rapper/producer did some freestyles and remixes and in February this year put out a mixtape sampler, entitled Gilbere Forte’ is BLVCK (download). This summer, Gilbere released his debut album through Anigma/RPM Grp Records, 87 Dreams with his popularity increasing further. 

After his remix to the song “Alors on Danse” by Belgian artist Stromae alongside Kanye West, I and many other blogs started to take notice. 

Today I bring you two songs Gilbere did remixes over. The first is a remix to the Freelance Whales song called “1st Floor” and the second is a remix to Yeasayer’s remix to the Florence & The Machine song called “Dog Days Are Over”. I like “1st Floor” more, it’s more catchy and it’s produced by a member of Passion Pit who I love.

Listen and download “1st Floor” and “Dog Days Are Over” below.  Gilbere Forte’ feat. Freelance Whales – 1st Floor by gilbereforte

Bulletproof remixes by Chris Webby and Colin Munroe

September 30th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup, R&B, Remix |

Last week, Colin Munroe mashed-up La Roux’s “Bulletproof” with Nicki Minaj’s verse from Kanye’s song “Monster”. At first I was iffy on it but after a few listens I do enjoy how the songs mix and things its a good effort by Colin Munroe. This is the second installment off The Revox Suite, which are a series of remixes from Colin Munroe.  Colin Munroe – Bulletproof Monster (La Roux X Nicki Minaj Revox) 

Today, Chris Webby released “Bulletproof” (credit 2DB), which sample’s La Roux and has Webby and Joell Ortiz rapping over it. This is the first leak off Chris Webby’s upcoming mixtape. I really like Chris Webby tracks when he samples other music and this is another good track from Webby.  Chris Webby-Bulletproof (Feat Joell Ortiz) by BeforeBigsZach 

Yo Gotti ft. Wale, J. Cole and Wiz Khalifa – “Look In The Mirror”

September 30th, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Remix |

Above is the teaser for the song and below is the CD quality to listen and download. Not a fan of Yo Gotti, but a real big fan of Wale, J. Cole and Wiz Khalifa, who are featured on this track. It’s got a great beat and everybody just kills it with their flow (except Yo Gotti).  Yo Gotti – Look In The Mirror (Remix) feat. Wale, J. Cole, & Wiz Khalifa
