Lil Wayne – Dedication 5

Lil Wayne dropped his latest addition to the dedication mixtape series earlier today after delaying its release by a few hours after deciding to add a few more tracks. I’ve never been a fan of Lil Wayne apart from the odd track here and there and I still don’t like him after playing this tape. His has literally nothing lyrical on the mixtape its standard Lil Wayne and I would celebrate if he where to retire from rapping quite frankly*. That being said their are some okay tracks on the mixtape and if anything its the features on the mixtape that outshine Wayne. Your song with Chance The Rapper is one of these tracks and the better Wayne tracks are over mainstream beats like New slaves, Bugatti and Fuckin Problems. Catch the mixtape stream and download at the top and leave a comment with your view on the release.

Ryan Leslie – Black Mozart

After delaying the release from back in April Ryan Leslie finally releases his album Black Mozart today after teasing on facebook that “THIS WEEK IS THE WEEK” The album is made up of 12 tracks and includes a feature from rapper Fabolous on the track Green. Instead of releasing the album via Itunes he has released it on his #renegades site where you can become a member for $12 and this gets you the album to download as well as allowing you to contact him via email and other benefits.

My personal favourite from the album is Higher which has an addictive and bass heavy beat with lyrics like “Money in Belize that’s a tax haven” While the album isn’t the most Lyrical and does mainly consist of Ryan Leslie telling us about his wealth the production is the main point to this album and unlike previous releases that where mainly produced by Ryan himself, this isn’t. This is both good and bad depending on your style in music and those who where drawn to him from his Studio videos showing his skills as a musician playing each instrument and seeing a song progress from the basics to the finished article.

No stream for the album due to it being a purchase only release so purchase via his #renegades site. However you can catch the Documentary for the album which includes studio footage and some songs enjoy!

Errors in my head – Deadmau5

Wow. The latest track to hit Deadmau5’s soundcloud is titled Errors in my head. It’s been a while since a track had such an effect on first listen. Errors in my head samples the vocals from “I Remember”, Kascade and Deadmau5’s anthem from time ago. The track breaks down into a piano vocal section, at this point I had to stop what I was doing and the sound had my full attention. I hope this is a sign of the work still to come out of Joel, interestingly he tagged the song with ‘Needs a vocal, But this will do’, so perhaps another version with a different vocalist will be the result eventually. For now though, this version is sick.

Coolroy – Nine

In my opinion there is nothing better than stumbling across an artist that you have never heard and instantly falling in love with their music and I was fortunate to give this new release by Coolroy a play after browsing djbooth. The journey he has been on in the past two years is explained in the image at the bottom of the page and this made me realise that I truly have no reason to feel so down about life. Every song on the project is a part of the journey Coolroy has been on in life and you can hear the passion and emotion he has put in throughout.

To me this is something that makes this project really special, their are some songs that everyone can relate to such as “Same Song” where he raps about the struggles of love and the emotional conflicts it can cause to a person. And after listening to the project fully you start to feel an emotional connection to songs that you relate to yourself and also to Coolroy. It’s simply refreshing in the music scene today to hear a project where the artist has given such a raw view into his emotions and thoughts. I encourage you to simply sit back and play this project from start to finish and just listen to the lyrics you wont be let down. My personal favourites are Fade Away, With You and I’m Fine which was inspired by an event in Coolroys life.

“There was this girl named Elizabeth . I used to write about her all of the time. She meant the world to me. She died. This song and video was inspired by her” Check out the video for that here.

Krafty Kuts – Summer Festival Mix 2013

Whilst i have known of Krafty Cuts for a while, after hearing this guys set at Space Ibiza, it became apparent that he was certainly a talented disk jockey. This is Krafty Cuts summer festival mix, it gives you a pretty good idea of the experience you will receive if you see him live, particularly at a festival! Funk meets bass, breaks and everything in between. On listening to this set, i didn’t want it to be over. There are some massive tunes masterfully mixed to create this hour long masterpiece, easily shooting this straight into my top 5 mixes of 2013.
