D.R.A.M.

Listen: // D.R.A.M. – “Cha-Cha”

Um.  I’m appreciating EVERYTHING that is happening here.  Dare I say there is actually something seductive going on here with D.R.A.M’s “Cha-Cha”?!  With the 8-bit vibes with an obvious coin-collecting sample from Super Mario, the Virginia-based rapper, D.R.A.M., is keepin’

Sick Beat

Listen: // Kero Kero Bonito – “Sick Beat” (Danny L. Harle Remix)

The original “Sick Beat” from London’s Kero Kero Bonito combines saccharine sweet J-pop with 8-bit accuracy and hip-hop to form this super kawaii track.  Sarah, the adorable vocalist here, seamlessly slides from Japanese to English. I think she’s putting a

Listen: // Sango – “When I’m Around U”

This is an absolutely beautiful instrumental coming straight out of Seattle from Soulection family member and electronic/hip-hop producer, Sango. I love how he totally transforms those skittering trap hi-hats into something deeper and more meaningful than ever.  “When I’m Around

What.  The.  Hell.  Can we speak on this for a second?!  Run The Jewels, the brain child of El-P and Killer Mike, totally came correct on this one.  “Oh My Darling Don’t Cry” is a complete slugger of a track

We Are Normaling

Interview: // Who is Normaling?

A seemingly unlikely pair from the outside looking in, the way Lemz and .rar Kelly met was purely an act of kismet, much like the stories of many other historic collaborations of the greats. It went down like this: unknowingly
