Last week we saw Air Dubai and For The Foxes perform at the legendary music venue The Roxy on Sunset Boulevard. For the most part it was a very solid show. However there were a few turn offs.
Air Dubai’s music is great and very cutting edge. I really love their alternative hip-hop vibe. However, their sound system and drummer were way to loud. Therefore it was really tough to hear the singers and gain a full appreciation for the music being played.
If they lowered the sound a little bit and got rid of the drummer, it would be perfect. The drummer should only be used if they ever perform at large festivals and not for small, intimate music venues. If they can fix those things I mentioned above, then their live shows will be taken to a whole other level. Below is my favorite song of theirs that they performed from the night.
Air Dubai – “All Day”:
Next up on stage was For The Foxes. I never heard of them prior to their set and in all honesty, was not much of a fan. The smooth instrumental’s were solid but the main singer seemed like he was trying too hard to be a singer from One Direction. His extremely high voice was just not cutting it for me. Maybe it’s just not my type of music. My favorite track of theirs from the night is below.
For The Foxes – “The Revolution”:
Got some exciting news for you!!! Coming right out of Philly, Tayyib Ali has finally dropped the second installment of his Keystone State mix tapes. Keystone State of Mind 2 is the same smart Tayyib you know and love, with a little more edge. I recently met up with him at a live show here in Denver, and can honestly say he deserves the best.

Til our next affair,
Kosha Dillz recently dropped a fun new music video directed by Ricky Shabazz called “Hangin Out”. It’s a chill hip-hop track that everybody can sing along to as Kosha spits about something we all love doing, simply hanging out.
From mobbing out in Koreatown to Froyo, Hollywood Blvd. and Jewish delis, the self proclaimed Dillzionaire parades through Los Angeles all while hanging out with a mob of fans, friends and cameos that include Laker Girls and many more. The ode to kicking it comes from his forthcoming untitled record (or possibly series of EPs) that also features tracks with Gangsta Boo, Murs, Big Pooh, Wax and more.

Our favorite hip-hop group from San Diego, Vokab Kompany, has released, “Don’t Owe You” their latest single and video from their upcoming collaboration album with Crush Effect. The album, titled VKCE, drops December 18 and I can’t wait for it. If the previous collaborations with VK and CE are any indication what’s to come between these two exciting up-and-coming acts, then this will be a must-listen album!

“Chocolate rainfalls and vanilla swirls, infinite climaxes and toes that curl. Release your inhibition, this is no exhibition cause giving you pleasure is my soul mission.”
-DJ Eazy Dick
Mister Mistress and DJ Eazy Dick have teamed up to bring you the Smooth Hour. Thirty three and a half minutes of… well, actually not one word could describe this tape. It hits with a fresh new sound that is just so eargasmic.
This song, T.K.O. ft PC, is a stand-out track for me.

e-dubble‘s been releasing a ton of new stuff in recent weeks and just recently, he dropped Reset EP, a six-track EP filled with upbeat fun alternative hip-hop with real interesting instrumentals. Plus in “Code Words” he gets Jhameel on the hook, maybe the best song on the project.
Earl Sweatshirt is one of the many members of Odd Future. Odd Future is a hip-hop collective that is led by controversial rapper, Tyler The Creator. I don’t know if it’s Earl Sweatshirt’s smooth flow or the laid back beat that is more enticing but regardless, its a great song that I can’t seem to get enough of.
