Since I first heard the original version of this record on Soulection’s Beats 1 radio show, it’s been getting constant replays. A couple of days later, I came across this gem. Brooklyn’s Stil Glas adds his magic touch and gives JAHKOY’s record a “chilled out” vibe, perfect to usher in the weekend. As a bonus, I’ve included the original version of the record, which you can check out down below. Happy Friday, World, and have a great weekend!
Mike Dean -Blues For The State Of The World (Moog Mod Improve With Guitar part 2) x White Black Jesus
Two dope instrumentals from producer extraordinaire, Mike Dean. Check out “Blues For The State Of The World (Moog Mod Improve With Guitar part 2)” up top, and “White Black Jesus” down below. Pure dopeness.
It’s been a long minute since Pusha T announced his solo sophomore set, “King Push“, and it seems we’ll have to wait a little longer. As we wait, the G.O.O.D. Music president announced another project, “Darkest Before Dawn“. Considered as a prelude to “King Push“, the project comes with a short film of the same name. The film is due to premiere at Art Basel next week, with the project shortly following on December 18th. Peep the trailer up top, and be sure to grab a copy of “Darkest Before Dawn” when it drops.
They really aren’t. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Wu-Tang Clan’s secret, one-of-a-kind album, “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin“, sold for over $5 million. Having been shrouded in mystery for quite some time, it’s good to hear the project has finally been sold. The downside? Due to an air-right contract, we won’t get to hear the project for 88 years. To mark the one-off release, we’ve selected track 7 off their groundbreaking debut, “Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)“, from 1993. If you haven’t already, grab the debut here, and kids, tell your kids to keep an ear out for “Once Upon A Time In Shaolin“!
Getting its premiere on Jimmy Kimmel’s show, the trailer for “Captain America: Civil War” is finally here. The movie serves as the thirteenth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and is due to be released on May 6th.
A lot of talent on one record. In September last year, Royce Da 5’9″ and DJ Premier announced they would be joining forces and working on a collaborative project. Their self-titled debut, released almost a year ago (December 9th) received much critical acclaim. For the one-year anniversary, the duo are planning on re-releasing the project, with more new cuts, and to support the release, they’ve dropped a new record for your listening pleasure. Check out “Highs & Lows” up top. Be sure to grab a copy of the project here.
Vibes. Happy Friday, World, and have a great weekend!
It doesn’t look like Abel’s smash is going anywhere any time soon. Brighton duo IYES deliver a haunting cover. Peep the laid-back take up top, and if you like what you hear, grab your free download from their soundcloud.
Lenny’s third single off his 2001 self-titled project serves as our #TBT record of the week. “Believe In Me” was released back in April 2002.
