GRiZ fuels resurgence with two fresh new tracks, makes vocal debutGriz Singles

GRiZ has made his soulful return to electronic frontlines with a double-dose of his boogie emblem. In 2018, GRiZ has been wowing funk-friendly crowds near and far, at hallowed venues like Chicago’s Navy Pier and Red Rocks, with the help of his newly instated 15-piece live band.

The two new tracks, “It Gets Better” and “Can’t Get Enough,” mark the end of a year of release dormancy for the longstanding hallmark in the electronic circuit. The latter of offerings ushers in GRiZ’s inaugural vocal display, as the Denver-based producer delivers his own rap verse, over a bout of his characteristically glitchy guitar riffs. Choral supplement runs abound in “It Gets Better,” which features the GRiZ-adjacent proponent of all things “love and positivity,” Virginian rapper, D.R.A.M.. Both tracks fit neatly inside GRiZ’s perpetual good-time arena—while he continues to stretch into formerly untapped artistic reservoirs.

Gangsta rap pioneer and Law & Order star Ice-T dips into dance music with launch of “serious techno music record label”

Ice-T knows where there’s a bag to be secured, and his latest venture is bringing him into the EDM game. The Grandfather of Gangsta Rap is perhaps nowadays best known for his 18 year and counting stint on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, along with a wealth of other TV gigs and acting credits. Now, he’s adding A&R to his credentials with the launch of Electronic Beat Empire, described by Ice as, “a serious techno music record label.”

Electronic Beat Empire’s debut release, Hip-Hop DJs Don’t Play Techno features the label’s in-house producer, masked hip-hop stalwart Afrika Islam, under electronic alias Mr. X across 12 new tracks. While Ice-T’s newfound electronic sensibilities may seem like a money grab, the venerated rapper is well ahead of the purists, admitting outright to Rolling Stone, “I am not gonna act like I’m a techno wizard or know anything about it.” In any case, the “OG Original Gangster” is dipping into a genre that famously already takes itself pretty seriously to begin with, but who knows? Maybe Ice-T is the techno savior we didn’t know we needed. Listen to Hip-Hop DJs Don’t Play Techno below.

Kanye and Kid Cudi deliver highly anticipated joint album ‘KIDS SEE GHOSTS’ [Stream]

This post was originally published on this site

Kanye West officially decreed we’re in for a G.O.O.D. summer, announcing via Twitter a slate of five albums that his camp would be delivering across the month of June, starting with Pusha T’s vicious Daytona, immediately followed by Kanye’s long-awaited eighth studio product, ye which debuted at a live listening party in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on June 1. Perhaps even more tantalizing was the confirmation of a joint album between Yeezy and fellow hip-hop trailblazer Kid Cudi. Keeping good on the schedule, Kanye and Cudi have delivered their first full-length collaboration, KIDS SEE GHOSTS.

As with Pusha and Kanye’s previous offerings, Cudi and Ye’s new LP follows the same seven-track design, all wrapped up in cover art by Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami. The record, which continues tropes from West’s ye, features a large supporting cast with contributions spanning from André 3000 to Ty Dolla $ign, including Ratatat’s E*Vax, Mos Def, and posthumous credits from late New Orleans jazz figure Louis Prima, and Kurt Cobain.

The album’s initial upload mislabeled the track titles and order on all DSPs, though you can find the official track list and stream KIDS SEE GHOSTS below.

1. Feel the Love
2. Fire
3. Fourth Dimension [ft. Louis Prima]
4. Freeee (Ghost Town, Pt. 2)
