Smoke Noises – Make It To A Dollar EP
20 November | | electronic

It’s no secret I’m a big fan of Cleveland rap trio Smoke Noises, who have been plugging away these last few months to finish their new EP. It’s finally finished and was released earlier this week on the homegrown Alloy-X imprint. The four-track EP features all in-house production from A/V, Urbindex, Hokes and Lukeoutthere, while skipping out on any guest features or other distractions. This one is definitely for the Hip-Hop heads. Stream SN’s Make It To A Dollar EP below and watch the video for the title track if you missed it a few weeks back.

Waterbed – Around (Single)
19 November | | electronic

Formerly known as MVSCLES, experimental pop duo Cat and Chad are now making music under the name Waterbed after spending months dreaming up new music, artwork and clothing. It just so happens that Waterbed’s first live show is next Wednesday in Los Angeles where they will be selling their brand new t-shirts as well. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick things off than with catchy new single, Around. I’m excited for this new chapter in Cat and Chad’s career and I think you will be too after giving Around a few spins below.

A Billion Young – Glenwood (Mixtape)
18 November | | electronic

It’s never easy to choose what to write about on Tuesdays, especially with so many great new releases this week in particular. To kick things off I decided to feature Glenwood, the latest release from Chicago production duo A Billion Young. Their unique blend of hip-hop, glitchy electronic and break beat music makes for an interesting combination through out the 14 track mixtape. Glenwood features guest appearances from a few new faces, including Teddy Jackson, Will Miller, Carter Lang and Miko. Get familiar with this talented bunch of artists through the streaming/download link below.

Mura Masa – Soundtrack To A Death (Album)
17 November | | electronic

English producer Alex Crossan makes beats under the name Mura Masa. While some have already compared him to Hudson Mohawke and Cashmere Cat, I confidently put Mura Masa in a lane of his own after hearing his debut LP on Jakarta Records. The 14-track album features all original instrumentals, most of which feature thunderous bass lines paired with rhythmic, worldly sounds such as flutes, bells and other unconventional percussion. When asked who he would like to rap over his beats in a recent interview with Pigeons & Planes, Mura Masa listed Kendrick Lamar. Just take a minute to imagine that. I have included the official video for …Girl, along with the link to purchase a copy of Soundtrack To A Funeral below.
