This post was originally published on this site

Dublin based MC Rejjie Snow is slowly but surely infiltrating the global music landscape with a string of singles featuring such acclaimed artists as Joey Bada$$ and Pell.

Now, the up-and-coming rapper has released a new project titled Dear Annie: Part 1. The project’s lead single “Egyptian Luvr” features the saccharine vocal candy of fellow hip hop ascendents Aminé and Dana Williams and flaunts production credits from Kaytranada, who injects his own bubbling energy into the tracks core.

“Egyptian Luvr” is certainly Rejjie’s most apt effort to date and — fresh on the heels of debut LP The Moon & You — the track is sure to garner Snow widespread recognition.

The voice is a lonely foghorn, a miles-deep burned-out baritone moan that seems to radiate the wisdom of hard-earned experience. It’s a beautiful voice, melodious and passionate and capable of bluesy catharsis or gospel-style uplift. And here’s what the owner of that voice uses it to express, over and over: “How y’all doing, but fuck … More »

Aminé – Caroline (Lege Kale Remix) [Free DL]

This post was originally published on this site

Lege Kale has been on a tear lately, as the Ohio-native is only a couple hundred SoundCloud followers away from reaching 30,000. With his unique blend of relaxed trap and airy synths, he knows how to make an almost meditative beat. Although his latest release – a remix of Aminé’sCaroline” – boasts a double-timed percussion line, it eventually returns to that groovy Lege trap that I’ve grown to know and love.

The track opens with a modulated organ synth that’s reminiscent of old-school Flume, prefacing the original vocals. Aminé then begins to tell you about his ‘dimepiece,’ as snaps begin to occupy every first and third beat. A kick unveils itself halfway through the first verse, showing a new side to Lege Kale that carries that groovy FlyLo vibe. Although I genuinely enjoy this certain kind of beat, I was secretly hoping that the track would delve back into his patented timbre to portray a wonderfully dichotomous production. My wish was granted, as the rest of the track proved to be just as blissfully tranquil as the beginning.

Listen for yourself below, and be sure to follow Lege Kale on SoundCloud to get him up to 30K!
