Blink-182 is back with poignant new LP, ‘NINE’ [Stream]Blink 182

While blink-182‘s former guitarist, Tom DeLonge, has been sweeping headlines for his hand in validating UFO sightings, his former super-band is still churning out pop-punk anthems.

The notorious Californian Enema of the State ensemble recently released their second LP with Alkaline Trio guitarist, Matt Skiba, who replaced DeLonge in 2015. NINE embodies the band’s continued development in songwriting emphasis and mature themes taking the lead in the lyricism. The same angst-ridden lifeblood of the band is accounted for, but with tactful delivery to boot. The 16-track collection arrives via Columbia Records, following their 2016 LP, California.

The band has certainly experienced a staunch resurgence in the post-pop-punk landscape. The new blink bumps elbows with Steve Aoki and tours with Lil Wayne. Their tour concludes ever so fittingly this weekend on their home turf in San Diego.

Kill two birds with one stone this summer: The cross-over tour the world didn’t know it needed has officially arrived. Lil Wayne and Blink-182 announced their joint North American tour featuring special guest Neck Deep on May 6. The tour will commence June 27 in Columbus, Ohio and end Sept. 18 in Camden, New Jersey. Lil Wayne will not perform at five cities including Toronto, Holmdel, El Paso, Wichita, and Council Bluffs.

The two legendary acts also teamed up to deliver a live mashup of their respective iconic songs “A Milli” and “What’s My Age Again.” While hip-hop in recent years has taken inspiration from rock, as evidenced by artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne and Blink-182 are no strangers to their universes colliding, having collaborated on a handful of projects—Travis Barker on Wayne’s “One Way Trip” and “I Am Not a Human Being,” and Lil Wayne on Barker’s “Can a Drummer Get Some” remix. Check out the upcoming tour dates and listen to the mashup below.

Netsky has released a remix pack from his single, “I Don’t Even Know You Anymore,” featuring up-and-coming R&B artist Bazzi and hip-hop icon Lil Wayne as part of his larger Palmtrees & Powerlines project. The four-track remix release showcases Andy C, Montell2099, Nitti Gritti, along with a specialty Netsky Powerlines remix. With an insurgence of energy, the enlisted artists add drum & bass, future bass, and heavier electronic backdrops to the pop, hip-hop, and R&B-leaning original.

RAM Records icon Andy C adds some speed to the original, throwing a drum & bass rhythm with fluttering high-hats, while Nitti Gritti throws cascading vocal chops between bouncing melodic percussion hits. Montell2099 shares a unique pop-oriented take, with a forward-facing bassline that dances alongside Bazzi’s soulful voice. Netsky’s own remix adds a video game flavor to the project, for a final touch in a remix series that adds to the electronic backdrop of the previous original.

Netsky enlists Bazzi and Lil Wayne for newest release, ‘I Don’t Even Know You Anymore’NETSKY I DONT EVEN KNOW YOU ANYMORE

Netsky continues to broaden his range with his newest effort,”I Don’t Even Know You Anymore,” featuring Bazzi and Lil Wayne. The track infuses a humming bassline that dances around Bazzi’s vocals, creating a radio-friendly hip-hop tracks that merges an electronic backdrop with vocals done by the two heavy-hitters.

The track was featured on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Beats 1 on Apple Music, and Netsky discussed both the track itself and the larger project the release is a part of, titled Palmtrees & Powerlines.

“Man, I’m excited to have this record out,” Netsky told listeners on the show. “I’ve been working on it for a while. Me and Bazzi didn’t get the time to get in the studio for this record, but I got sent the song … because we were both touring … I got sent this song and I loved it from the second I heard it.” He continues, “So we worked on lots of different productions. We ended up with a version that we both really loved. It turned out, it was a childhood dream for both of us to work with Lil Wayne, who is obviously an icon and a legend to both of us. So it’s amazing to have him finish this record. I think it’s an incredible addition to it. I’m excited.”

The release is the third installment from forthcoming Palmtrees & Powerlines, a two-part project that explores both Netsky’s magnetic brand of pop music (on Palmtrees) and his genre-bending innovation as a creator of club tracks (on Powerlines). Each song from Palmtrees & Powerlines will find a place within one of these two worlds.

Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth’s LSD project hosts Lil Wayne for a ‘Genius’ track and video reboot

Diplo, Sia, and Labrinth’s LSD project hosts Lil Wayne for a ‘Genius’ track and video rebootLil Wayne Carter V

Just months after the release of LSD‘s stroke of “Genius,” the power trio has resurrected the track, this time with a twist. The group has enlisted another member of pop monarchy, the recently resurfaced Lil Wayne, to bump the track up a few more ancillary IQ points.

Diplo‘s string synths and bumping kicks provide a momentous pedestal for the rap icon’s flippant rhyming. Weezy’s contributing intro verse is a lesson in brevity. In under 25 seconds, the rapper spits his peace and ducks out, giving way to Sia and Labrinth’s prevailing, full-bodied croons. Tha Carter V creator also materializes in the new video accompaniment as a floating, dreadlocked wizard, complete with the trio’s signature breathing colors and off-the-wall animation.

Just four tracks into their auspicious union, LSD has seized the attention of both electronic and pop patrons. With Diplo’s soon-to-be-disbanded Major Lazer project on the backburner, there’s likely to be lots more LSD on the tips of our tongues in coming months.
