North American Gucci Mane fans will want to clear their fall calendars as the “I Get The Bag” rapper prepares to embark on a 12-date tour. The “Unusual Suspects” Tour will kick off on November 7 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and will take Gucci through a number of U.S. cities, including Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more.
Carnage and Smokepurpp will provide support for all dates, but attendees can expect some additional fanfare during Gucci’s December 27 stop at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre. Duly the one show set in Gucci’s hometown and the tour’s finale, the Atlanta date will see a number of surprise guests join the rapper to close out the “Unusual Suspects” tour, given the show’s “Gucci Mane & Friends” titling. Tickets to the tour will go on sale on September 28 at 10 AM EST, and can be purchased here.
Hippie Sabotage is a duo that has been in the game for a long time, consisting of brothers Kevin and Jeff Saurer, these guys have been releasing captivating originals and unique remixes while also touring all over the world. They appear to be consistently on top and don’t seem to be stopping their momentum anytime
Travis Scott and Drake‘s “Sicko Mode” is easily one of the most enticing hip-hop cuts of the year. The song, an obvious standout off of Scott’s dominating mid-summer LP, Astroworld, serves as the perfect groundwork for a loud Luca Lush flip that will satisfy both dance and hip-hop fans alike with a fitting homage to La Flame and Drake’s chart-topper.
Taking the original “Sicko Mode” and remixing it with his own signature bass-heavy style, Lush plays with pitched down vocal samples, tight hi-hat rolls, and thundering drum builds before a pair of halting, screeching bass breaks. Lush gives off a snarling remix effort, transforming “Sicko Mode” into a rail-rattling festival bulldozer. No doubt Travis Scott struck gold on “Sicko Mode,” but now with a menacing Luca Lush remix that’s bound to start circulating heavily through DJ sets, expect Scott and Drake to be coming through your club’s speakers well past the summer season.
David Guetta and Kid Cudi‘s 2009 smash hit “Memories” is now a veritable electronic classic, and one that helped to propel both Guetta and Cudi to new heights. A standout of Guetta’s fourth studio album, One Love, “Memories” isn’t the only Cudi collaboration that Guetta has in his sonic arsenal, as the 7 producer imparted in a recent interview with UK electronic music news source, JOE. As the collaboration nears its tenth anniversary, Guetta imparts, “I still have it, it’s good,” revealing a second, still unreleased Cudi record. “It’s actually really good,” Guetta added, “The other one is a performance [track]. It’s crazy because now I’m thinking with everything that’s going on right now in hip-hop that record is so current right now because it’s really like a punk rock record.”
Although Guetta appears to have his next hip-hop and electronic hybrid hit in the chamber, fans shouldn’t expect the song to gain a formal release anytime soon. “I would have to reproduce the record because it was ten years ago,” Guetta told JOE. “And it was impressive, I have to say, to see him create,” Guetta stated of Cudi’s in studio aptitude, “It was really, really good.” For now, it seems like the approriate time to dust this old bop off and have a listen for the first time in a while.
The up and coming rapper Star BBY, aka Francis Slothington aka Frank Polumbo, recently dropped stuntastic new track aptly named, “Star Stuntin’.” The track’s devil-may-care attitude reminds me of Micky Avalon’s lackadaisical bars. As hip-hop grows more experimental by the second, this dude’s off the wall approach fits right in. An ice cold beat and
This edition of Dancing Astronaut’s daily Good Morning Mix memorializes the life of Adam Michael Goldstein, better known as the iconic DJ AM. It has been nine years since Goldstein’s untimely passing, though his ubiquity and influence are still felt across electronic music today.
There is no better way for fans to celebrate Goldstein’s legacy than by reliving on of his many notable mixes, and perhaps one of his most memorable — the unforgettable Power 106 FM mix. Clocking in at just over an hour in length, the mix works through throwback tracks from JAY-Z and Beyoncé, Notorious BIG, Usher, Janet Jackson, Aerosmith, and more. A hip-hop-inflected masterclass in cool from the inimitable DJ AM warms the heart as we near a decade since his death. Scratching and skipping his way through a trove of complementary throwbacks, AM still reminds of his place among the greats in the highest echelons of dance history.
J Dilla‘s third studio album, The Shining, will forever be remembered in hip-hop. Serving as his first posthumous project following his death on February 10, 2006, the late Detroit rapper claimed it was only 75 percent finished while others argued only the mastering portion remained.
The Shining was released on August 22 of that same year through BBE records, with a slew of features including Common, Black Thought, D’Angelo, Madlib, J. Rocc, Dwele, Pharoahe Monch, and Busta Rhymes. Now, the label has linked with a record store named HHV in Berlin to release 500 copies of an exclusive gold vinyl edition.
The bundle includes a 40-page booklet containing an introductory essay and an interview with Peter Adarkwah of BBE Records. Retailing for roughly $30 dollars, fans can purchase the record directly on their website.
Not too long ago a new electronic infused, hip-hop single, “Feeling” was dropped by the producer 10Digits.
