I posted the red band trailer at the beginning of February, and now, here’s the official trailer to N.W.A’s biopic. I cannot wait for this to drop.
We got FLAREtWO yesterday, and today, SBTRKT lets loose another freebie for us.
Either this track is a leftover from SBTRKT’s “Wonder Where We Land” sessions, or it’s a random new track. Either way, I’m not complaining. Enjoy!
It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally getting a project from Jamie xx. Up top is the visuals for “Loud Places”, with vocals from fellow The xx band member, Romy. A few words regarding the video from the man himself;
Romy and I grew up skateboarding together, when I was thinking of what the video for Loud Places should be, I kept coming back to the idea of Romy and I skating in London, visiting the places we used to go to. It’s a part of our friendship not many people really know about and it’s something I wanted to share.
Jamie’s “In Colour” project is due to drop on June 1st, and is available to pre-order here.
Major Lazer’s latest record serves as our #FGF record of the week. “Roll The Bass” is lifted from their upcoming “Peace Is The Mission” project, which is due to drop on June 1st. Click “play”, turn up the volume, and let the sounds of Major Lazer carry you into the weekend. Happy Friday, World, and have a great weekend!
Yesterday marked the 18-year anniversary since The Notorious B.I.G.’s second (and final) project was released. Picking up where “Ready To Die” left off, the project featured fellow Bad Boy Records artists Ma$e, 112, The LOX and of course, P Diddy (or Puff Daddy, at the time), as well as other artists like Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and fellow Brooklyn rappers Jay-Z and Lil’ Kim. To mark the release, our #TBT record this week served as the lead single from the project and was released back in April 1997. Grab a copy of the album here if you haven’t heard it already; classic.
In June last year, Tom Krell a.k.a. How To Dress Well released his third project, ““What Is This Heart?”“. To mark the release of the album in Berlin, he linked up with Minna Choi’s Magik*Magik orchestra, and as part of a continuous sixty-minute score, performed “Pour Cyril“. Now, 9 months after the projects release, he’s liberated the live recording for our listening pleasure. Stream the record up top, and down below, listen to him deconstruct the making of the song. If you haven’t already, be sure to grab a copy of ““What Is This Heart?”” here. Flawless.
