Chance the Rapper & The Social Experiment – Gimmie A Call (feat. Taylor Bennett) [Original Mix]

This post was originally published on this site

From singing songs about his daughter to providing support to his hometown of Chicago, Chance the Rapper is an artist who quite obviously values the relationships in his life. Keeping it in the family this time, Chance has enlisted his brother, Taylor Bennett, and longtime friends and collaborators The Social Experiment for his latest offering.

In a time where popular hip hop production is an increasingly digital art form, Chance the Rapper and his friends take a step back with this soulful jam. Sparing a few piano keys and pieces of percussion, “Gimmie A Call” is performed almost completely a capella. Chance the Rapper’s friendly vocals welcome the listener into the track as the voices of The Social Experiment begin to form around his warm and unmistakable croon. The song drops to just a beat-box as Taylor Bennett lays down his inspired verse, before the Social Experiment close out the track with a calming outro.

Skrillex is working on a studio project with a group of hip-hop artists

This post was originally published on this site

The multi-talented Skrillex is almost omnipresent these days, having been featured as a producer on Fifth Harmony’s new single ‘Angel,’ as well as dropping his own brand new single ‘Favor‘ in just the last two weeks.

He continues to push on relentlessly it seems, as an Instagram by Josh Xantus confirmed Skrillex’s work on a new project alongside a group of budding hip-hop artists. It’s unsurprising to seethe icon delve into this genre, given the success of his collaboration with Rick Ross, ‘Purple Lamborghini.’ However, it seems that Skrillex has been hired as simply a producer for his latest project, especially after listening to the video clip shared by Xantus.


GoldLink – Crew (Lido Remix)

The Norwegian virtuoso Lido has returned with yet another new rapturous reworking, this time hitting GoldLink’s even-keeled “Crew.”

Ripping apart the tune’s pace entirely, he eases into the track, showcasing his expansive musical repertoire in a piano introduction. Once GoldLink comes around with the first verse, Lido picks up the pace, and the track takes off. Similar to his reworking of GoldLink’s “Sober Thoughts” released just last year, the flip is filled with energy, and by the time the second round of verses rolls around, things are up to full speed.

Ekali makes OWSLA debut with an insane Denzel Curry collab, announces Babylon World Tour

This post was originally published on this site

Ekali just signed onto Skrillex‘s label OWSLA. Known for his earth-shattering bass and masterfully mixed hip-hop tracks, it comes as no surprise the artist is now working directly with some of music’s most influential acts. After playing Webster Hall’s final club night alongside Skrillex and Boys Noize on Aug. 5, Ekali now presents “Babylon,” a five-minute fusion of hip-hop and electronic music with one of rap’s most versatile—Denzel Curry.

Speaking with XXL ahead of the collaboration’s release, Ekali explained his stylistic choices.

“My objective with ‘Babylon’ was to create a world where rap and electronic coexisted without tipping the scales too far in either direction. I was hyped on the idea of producing an entire song around Denzel’s story instead of having him tell his story around my beat, so I ended up producing 99 percent of the song after Zel had already recorded his parts.


He continued, “It’s an approach to rap music that I’d never seen done before, so I wanted to know what that sounded like. Working in the room with Denzel was fast… he’s a real rapper. Most of the time we spent kicking it just playing shit back and forth. He wrote and recorded his parts for Babylon in minutes.”

Following up on Ekali’s remixes of Curry’s “Threatz” with a style similar to that of Flume and Vince Staples’ “Smoke & Retribution,” the latest rave-rap release is a flavorful heavy feature that’s simply waiting for its dance floor drop. Luckily, fans won’t need to wait long as Ekali also announced the “Babylon World Tour,” with 42 tour dates goes on sale this Monday, Aug. 21.

It’s hard to find a fusion of electronic and hip-hop that’s this balanced in both genres. It’s a rap song that would absolutely throw down in a festival crowd while still pleasing heavy hip-hop heads. Throw in the R&B hook by Moss Kena and the song is topped of nicely.

Watch Gorillaz perform ‘Empire Ants’ live for the first time in seven years at Outside Lands

This post was originally published on this site

A Gorillaz show always lives up to the hype. Riding the success of their latest album Humanz, they continue to prove this notion even further with their fiery headlining set at Outside Lands’ tenth anniversary in San Francisco. They brought out an impressive array of collaborators as per usual, one of which was none other than Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon. Nagano, who also played the festival, joined Damon Albarn on stage for a live rendition of their joint record “Empire Ants,” marking the very first time Gorillaz had performed it live since Plastic Beach came out in 2010.

Premiere: Salva releases open source beat tape called ‘Clips’

This post was originally published on this site

Up-and-coming Los Angeles talent Salva has released his groundbreaking “open source” beat tape, Clips. The LP pulls heavy inspiration from audio and movie clips often sampled in styles like UK Grime and southern trap with a prominent 808 structure.

Salva’s unique and much-needed concept behind the “open source” album is forward-thinking and extraordinarily innovative. Everybody is allowed and encouraged to contribute their music and collaborate. This cuts down on artists having to illegally remix songs, forcing an unfathomable amount of underground talent and music to be completely unheard.

Clips references ammunition, in this case the “clips” that will be used to create dance-floor weapons. When it’s released, all its stems will be available on Splice, as well as a sample pack that is loaded with Salva’s favorite drum, percussion, and FX.

Salva has been busy working on a plethora of projects as of late, including producing the lead single from UK’s Dizzee Rascal album Raskit. He also contributed the background record for the LA Leakers‘ new single “Sucio,” which features OT Genasis, Kap G, and Trinidad James.

The extraordinarily talented and well-versed hip-hop maverick has no intentions of halting any of his creative projects anytime soon. In fact, he’s planning on releasing Peacemaker 2 with an impressive lineup of rappers as a follow-up from his 2014 mixtape that featured Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs, E-40, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Ferg, Kurupt, and Problem.



Clips tracklist:

  1. Intro: memories
  2. Stranger Things Have Happened
  3. DD
  4. System
  5. Cold Case
  6. Bells
  7. Tryna Cut
  8. Fucc: Badman
  9. Drop The Glock
  10. Her
  11. BBB
  12. Dungeonmaster
  13. Club Wave
  14. Cruise Thru Fillmore 97
  15. Nuff Darkness
  16. Souf Lndn
  17. Bunker

Clips was written, produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered completely by Salva. 3D animations, artwork concepts, rendering, layout, and designs were also created by Salva. Physical vinyl, CD, and tape versions of Clips will be available in September of 2017 via Peacemaker Entertainment.
