Hip-Pop *Radical Something, AudioDax, Allen Mask, Lou Williams, Shwayze & Cisco

August 9th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop |

Five fairly new hip-pop songs from artists on a variety of levels in terms of popularity.

First we go with chill-hop-pop trio Radical Something. It’s hard to define this group but chill is a word that would almost always be used to describe them. Check out a song about my favorite state in the world, “California”.

Radical Something – “California”

AudioDax recently released Pop Rocks (DOWNLOAD), which is full of hip-pop songs. Although I’m not the biggest fan of the mixtape, “Careful Time” has smooth instrumentals, a mix of solid vocals and rapping. Overall a real catchy song.

Next comes a newcomer to BtB, Allen Mask. His song “Radio” is real catchy, rapping is solid, beat is a little basic but overall the hook is fun and gets you dancing.

Lou Williams, point guard of the Philadelphia 76ers decided to make music while the NBA lockout continues. He pairs up with Dave Patten to create “Slow It Down”. Lou’s rapping is better than Ron Artest’s, Dave Patten‘s hook is fire, overall a fun song and I’m a big fan of the instrumentals and Patten’s vocals.

Lastly we go with the most mainstream artists in this post with Shwayze & Cisco. In June they released “Summertime Music” which is a perfect title as this Summer jam is radio-friendly but also real chill for Summer. In terms of chill-hop, these guys are at the top of the game.

4 new Mike Posner remixes

First let’s go with the softer pop remix from The Council on Mike Posner‘s “Bow Chicka Wow Wow” featuring Lil Wayne. If I were a girl I would love this song but as a guy I think it’s catchy with the piano, drums and finger snaps.

Next we got one of our favorite electro hip-pop duos with AudioDax doing a dubstep remix of Mike Posner’s “Cheated”. AudioDax really turns this into a club hit and with the lyrics about cheating, this is a must-play at the dance clubs. They throw some rapping in too, behind the dope instrumentals they throw in furthering the quality in this one.

Last month, DJ Benzi put out a SXSW mixtape which consisted of many remixes from several DJ’s and some original tracks from up-and-coming artists. Below is one of my favorite tracks off the mixtape which is DJ Enferno remixing “Ambiguous” by Clinton Sparks & Mike Posner. No Big Sean in this, I think his lyrical flow doesn’t fit into the pace and catchiness of this club jam.

This came out in February but it’s dope as Johnny Lawson adds some catchy instrumentals and overall I’m very impressed by the instrumentals in this as it turns “Save Your Goodbye” into an electro banger.

Hidden Gem: AudioDax

Electro/Hip-Pop duo AudioDax hails from Fort Worth, TX and Chicago. First heard them back in August when Crystal Castles remixed “Thoughts” by AudioDax. I loved the beat behind it plus the rhymes were dope too.

Recently they dropped “Make Noise” which is a hip-pop track with a laid back electro beat. Over the summer they dropped a mixtape, The Annexation (download), which is produced by DJ Benzi and Sully.

Below are three of my favorites from AudioDax.
