Cody B. Ware – Gangsta Party ft. Ninjasonik & Bad Rabbits

August 11th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Rock |

I found this song using, not sure which user started playing it but immediately I became a fan. Never heard of Cody B. Ware before hearing this song, was already a huge fan of Ninjasonik & Bad Rabbits before hearing the song. Everything about this song just feels like it clicks. Listen and download “Gangsta Party”, a bonified 5-star on my itunes which means MUST-DOWNLOAD status!

Covers *Aloe Blacc, Bad Rabbits, Collin McLoughlin, John Legend, Adele

I have been pushing this back and continually forgetting about doing a covers post. Well know I got too many covers to post, so here’s five that have come out within the last few months worth listening to. Above is a picture of Bad Rabbits who recently embarked on a “Cover Sessions” feature. Below is the third cover in their series.

Aloe Blacc decided to do a cover/mashup with my favorite Jay-Z song, “99 Problems” with Kanye West‘s “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”. Aloe Blacc is hands-down one of the best up-and-coming R&B/soul artists and I love his vocals in this, giving the song a retro soul feel. It’s ironic because each of these originals sample retro funk/soul material.
Aloe Blacc – 99 Problems x Can’t Tell Me Nothing
Next my favorite genre-blending funk, pop, R&B, rock band, Bad Rabbits, cover one of Smashing Pumpkins greatest songs and one of those songs I hate to hear on a Sunday because it reminds me of a new work week, much like any Bush song. Loving the instrumentals, vocals are better than I expected, personally I enjoy the cover more than the original.
Bad Rabbits – 1979
For some reason Collin McLoughlin is putting out more remixes/covers than originals which is cool but I want to see more originality before declaring me being a bigger fan of him than say Mike Posner. Here Collin cover’s Odd Future crooner Frank Ocean‘s “Nature Feels” which samples MGMT’s “Electric Feel”. When your doing a song over MGMT instrumentals, there’s a real good chance the song is going to be fantastic.

Probably have all heard this but if you haven’t downloaded this yet, here’s John Legend‘s cover of Adele‘s “Rolling In The Deep”. Love how John Legend uses hardly anything to support his powerful vocals.
John Legend – Rolling In The Deep
And on that note, let’s finish today’s covers with Adele‘s cover of The Strokes first mainstream hit, “Last Nite”. I still prefer the original, but this is still really good as Adele is one of the most under-appreciated musicians out there.

Bad Rabbits – Stick Up Kids REMIX album

March 29th, 2011 by | Mashup, Remix |

Shout out to ChinUp Music for bringing this to my attention. Although this came out back in November 2010, I’m so glad I found out about it as most of the remixes are DOPE and several are MUST-DOWNLOADS! It’s time the world knows who Bad Rabbits is, a band that is a mix of rock & roll, funk and hip-hop.

Here’s three songs that should help give you good reasons to download the Stick Up Kids Remix album.
Can’t Back Down (Jayson DeZuzio Remix) feat. Jay-Z (Jay-Z lyricism thrown in)
Stick Up Kids (Clinton Sparks Remix) (love the original so much, remix almost as great)
Advantage Me (Jeremy Comitas & Jayson DeZuzio Remix) ft. Jesse Korman (hard rock remix)

Hidden Gem: Bad Rabbits

February 13th, 2011 by | Hidden Gem, Music Video, R&B, Rock |

While you are watching the Grammy awards tonight, hopefully you noticed how mainstream it gets with many talented artists that don’t get considered. In 2012 that will change with one group, the Bad Rabbits who mix R&B, Rock, Funk and Soul to make for an awesome genre-blending band out of Boston. Above is the music video to their latest single, “Neverland” off their last EP, Stick Up Kids (download).

Here’s 3 of my favorites although I like almost all their songs.

Can’t Back Down

Currently Bad Rabbits are working with legendary producer Teddy Riley who has produced for Blackstreet, Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. This should propel Bad Rabbits to garner some radio hits and get some big mainstream attention this year. Bad Rabbits are a must watch group in 2011, follow them on facebook and twitter.
