Required Listening: Angus & Julia Stone – “Grizzly Bear”

Every so often a song arrives in my inbox from a group that not only captures my attention, but somehow manages to hold onto it throughout the majority of any given work day. I stumbled upon one such track early this morning, and in the hours that have passed since its initial discovery I have spun that song at least a dozen times. Now, having finally finished my dance party for one, I’m ready to share it with you.

Angus & Julia Stone are currently preparing to release their new self-titled, Rick Rubin-produced album on August 1. Today, the duo …

Orenda Fink Shares “Holy Holy”

Singer-songwriter and beloved Azure Ray member Orenda Fink continued to promote her upcoming solo album this morning by sharing a new song titled “Holy Holy.”

Premiering on American Songwriter just as the sun was beginning to rise, “Holy Holy” is a soft and melancholy song that sticks to your bones long after your initial encounter has come to an end. Blue Dream, the album from which the song hails, is based on a year long meditation on death following the passing of Fink’s dog. I don’t know where “Holy Holy” fits into that meditation, but it’s certainly a calming, …

Required Listening: Lorde – “Tennis Court” (Diplo Remix)

New Zealand’s hottest export has officially been remixed by everyone in the game.

Yesterday, the one and only creative genius known as Diplo shared with the world his unique remix of Lorde’s infectious “Tennis Court.” Keeping with his signature style, Diplo kicks up the energy of the song to eleven, adding bouncy bass and additional synth to the mix while leaving Lorde’s beloved croon alone. It’s not the best track Diplo has delivered in 2014, but it’s a fun track nonetheless that seems guaranteed to generate a fair amount of clicks for everyone involved over the next several weeks.

Juicy J Shares “Hot Ni**a” Remix

There is no stopping Juicy J. Then again, why would you ever want to?

The two tracks burning up urban radio right now are Rae Sremmurd’s “No Flex Zone” and Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Nigga.” Juicy J released a verse over the former last week, so it should come as no surprise that he’s started this week by sharing a new set of bars over Shmurda’s breakout hit. Juicy’s ‘THC’ remix takes an already hard hitting track fueled by ego and raises the bar for all others who may attempt to make the beat their own at some point down …

Wiz Khalifa‘s promotional push towards the release of Blacc Hollywood continued today with the premiere of a new banger titled “You And Your Friends.”

It’s hard to know what exactly Wiz Khalifa has in store for fans with his highly-anticipated new album. “We Dem Boyz” led us to believe a street heavy record could be on the way, but “You And Your Friends” is a clear return to radio-ready material. Joined by Snoop Dogg and Ty Dolla $ign, Wiz goes in over a beat from DJ Mustard on the girls that they hope to take home after a night …

Required Listening: Lauryn Hill – “Doo Wop” (MKL Remix)

It takes a brave soul to attempt remixing a song as iconic as Lauryn Hill‘s “Doo Wop,” but when you have an idea as good as the one producer MKL has delivered today, some risks must be taken.

Early today, I woke to find my inbox bursting with the usual array of press releases and ‘please feature us’ messages I have grown accustomed to discovering each morning. As a I dug through the latest messages promoting material I was unfamiliar with I stumbled across a quick note about a new remix from MKL that demanded my immediate attention. Some …

Pusha T Releases “No Flex Zone” Freestyle

Every couple of months a song comes along that becomes so popular online nearly every headline-generating rapper makes time to add their spin to the track. For the first part of 2014, that song was almost assuredly “OG Bobby Johnson.” Now, thanks to Rae Sremmurd, the world has been inundated with “No Flex Zone” freestyles. We have skipped most of them, but the one that surfaced today was too good to ignore.

It has been a while since the world heard from Pusha T, but this morning the angsty half of Clipse delivered a new verse over …

Thugga Thugga continues his rise to the top of the urban music game today with the release of the highly-anticipated remix for “Eww Eww Eww.”

It’s kind of hard to believe that we live in a day and age where a song with a title like “Eww Eww Eww” can become a viral sensation, let alone be taken seriously in the world of hip-hop, but that is exactly what Young Thug has pulled off with his latest promotional single. “Eww Eww Eww” was a hit on the blogosphere in early 2014, but with the addition of T.I. and Zuse to …
