Frank Ocean · Swim Good

Bringin back that catchy 90's R&B beats

We’ve all seen, heard and felt the raw vibrations of ODD FUTURE and of course their main play, Tyler the Creator. Based out of LA, they have completely exploded via blogs & Twitter … beauty of it all now, eh Anyway, fellow LA friend, Frank Ocean, is bringing that old school Soul for Real kind of sound back that seems to have been drowned out ever since the dance scene blew up (not hating, just saying).

His beats are seductive – take a listen to another one of his, “Lovecrimes”, which totally vibe hand in hand with his lyrics. This track, “Swim Good”, had me by the balls since the first time I heard it […]

The Weeknd · Rolling Stone

dude can really hit the high notes

Ooooo! – just in time for the long weekend we get another Weeknd treat. It’s pretty damn safe to assume this is the first single off The Weeknd’s next mixtape, Thursday, which is suppose to be dropping sometime soon… Either way, it’s a fresh tune from the ever sexier Abel.

Also, wanted to point how much the beats make his music. Abel has one smooth voice with just the right grime, but I see too many talented vocalists paired up with the wrong beats. The Weeknd, however, gets it right over & over again. rare. Keep it up.

The Weeknd · High For This (Downpour Remix)

+ second mixtape, Thursday, is right around the corner.

A crop of Weeknd remixes have been sproutin’ up since The Weeknd’s first mixtape, House of Balloons, dropped just under two months ago. However, none have done any real justice to their original’s, up until possibly now.

Downpour’s remix is an even grimier take on The Weeknd’s “High For This”, taking Abel’s sorrowed vocals into an even more hellish dubstep grind. ** if you don’t do dustep, you won’t like this.

In other Weeknd updates, a recent Twitter post indicated the second mixtape, Thursday, is right around the corner – which’ll be the second installment in The Weeknd’s, starwars trilogy of music, ‘balloon trilogy’ – thank you twitter, haha ;) Let’s hope it drops this Thursday… no more teasing us!

The Weeknd ·· House of Balloons

Continuing with the sexiest shit you've never heard!

Abel Tesfaye’s vocals are touching on holy in House of Balloons, backed by Doc Mckinney & Illangelo’s deep ‘n dirty beats and this is an experience into the dark side of soul.

When I heard The Weeknd’s first single, “What You Need“, about a half a year back, I remember thinking that this is some of the sexiest shit. Well, I wasn’t quite sure where Abel would take it next, but House of Balloons has a grip of tracks that are equally as impressive, spewing even more […]

Mike Posner vs Deadmau5

Please Don't Go (DOSVEC Mashup)

This beat was made for Posner’s “Please Don’t Go”. Fuck the original, this one vibes much harder.

There is, however, one thing a little off in the song -at around 3:40 & 6:20 a subtle ring tone sound seems out of place. I asked DOSVEC about it and he told me it wasn’t anything added by him. I checked Deadmau5’s original and it doesn’t seem to be in there either. It does, however, sound like an instrumental coming from Posner’s original, but I’m still not sure.

Other than that slight nuance, it’s a damn chill tune to tune out to.

The Lady Killer by Cee Lo Green

The Soul Machine is back producing ever sexier souled out sounds.

First hearing about Cee Lo’s new album, I wondered if he could pull it off without Brian Burton (Danger Mouse), who paired up with him for Gnarls Barkley. But then “Fuck You” dropped and I was reassured Cee Lo would be al-fucking-right.

There’s nothing I love hearing more than fuck come out of a soul singer’s voice, but I was still wondering where Cee Lo would take it past this crude and catchy track.

For the rest of The Lady Killer, Cee Lo stops hatin’ and begins the love makin’. Whether the “Old Fashioned” love, physical sensuality or fuckin’ through metaphor, Cee Lo emanates the sex in Soul. There is, however, one song […]

Velocity of Love by D-Pulse

Pure magical funk - Perfect for the autumn season.

I don’t know why, but recently I’ve been finding a good amount of music to make love to – maybe I’ll compile it all for y’all sometime.

The most recent of these baby makin’ songs is “Velocity of Love” by D-Pulse. What makes it so damn sensual is that brass vibration – it sure leaves the heart wondering. I just wish it wasn’t so hard to find more shit like this.

Enjoy with a loved one.

The Weeknd – What You Need

Sexiest Shit You've Never Heard

Fuck is this shit sexy! Ya ever find a song that you could listen to over and over again, and it got better every damn time Well, that’d be this.

Last night I was heading to bed when I randomly hit this on the Hype Machine (it was meant to be). The beat clicked from the start and the vocals were smoother than.. my thought process right now ’cause I can’t think of shit. This may even top GAYNGS‘s “The Gaudy Side of Town” for sexiest love song of […]

Do I Do (U-Tern Disco Edit) by Stevie Wonder

"Yes I got some candy kisses for your lips."

I’m finally getting how to find music I like on SoundCloud. The site’s mostly compiled of DJ’s with a lot of new and exciting talents. A lot of it’s experimental and therefor won’t appeal to a large audience, but there’s still a lot of tracks that will, or at least I hope…

U-Tern’s remix of “Do I Do” by Stevie Wonder is a fresh edit to a classic. It’s got a good build to it and once it tops off, you can’t help but shakin’ yo booty (I did) or doin’ the “white man’s dance”, as my father pointed out.

I look forward to following this stylish Canadian DJ. I really hope he put’s out more remixes to great R&B legends… Bill Withers!

The Recluse (Nero Remix) by Plan B

My new theme song!

I was surfing SoundCloud a few days back, at work, when I ran into this beaut’. It took me sometime to catch the lyrics, but when I did, I realized they spoke the words that I’ve felt for so long.

I do love to rage on the occasion, but sometimes I like going a couple days without seeing anyone – I just get so much more done! And a lot of my friends/family can’t quite understand that. I guess now I can just point ’em to this song :)

The only thing I don’t like about “The Recluse” is Plan B’s rap towards the end. I’ve dealt with a lot of hip-hop artists from […]
