If you just came out of the hospital from that beating you took on Black Friday over a waffle press at walmart. Do not worry, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole got you on some Black Friday gifts, each released on their own respective lables, Top Dawg Ent and Dreamville. The two shared each others tracks the day off and it was a great present to say the least. While you still gotta download em, you at least are not getting an elbow to the face.
Tkay Maidza releases a new track after a short silence following her release of MOB. Paired with an eerie yet creative music video, this project unites some serious talent in music production. Ghost is a future classic trap beat track brought to you by Baauer, What So Not and George Maple. The airy synths, heavy beats and ghostly effects is a raw track and with Tkay’s steadfast vocals, this should satisfy fans for another good season till the cravings kick in.
Originally from the Twin Cities but is currently reppin the set in Chi town, we know him as homies. Manic Focus, the young producer known for his dope live music sets and funky beats released yet another one. This time hooking up with Brooklyn’s finest Break Science and Lettuce on Funky Style to make a song that is just that. There is no time you cannot vibe with this. Its undisputed, it is rhythmically smooth and beautiful. Try not to move to this, its pretty hard.
Premiering on Nest HQ, hub known for free releases and soul inspiring music started by Skrillex in 2014. Time makes its way to Daktyl and Madeaux to release a collab on the Nest HQ platform. Originally starting as a “post R&B Ballad” by Madeaux, it went through a metamorphosis as vocalist Anais Aida would put it. Adding hip hop beats and synth breaks the end result was nothing short of a masterpiece.
Reworking an old track with Madeaux, can show you that Daktyl can take any track and transform it with new live. He did so with Metaphysical by Chicago based house producers Autograf. Taking the uptempo dance tune and transforming into a vibrant future classic beat. No different effort with Shanay‘s piece Time. He took the soulful R&B hit and added some hip hop energy and rhythm with sould vibrant synths over Shanay’s chopped up vocals. Embarking on tours for November after hitting up gigs at nightclubs, Daktyl is staying busy, keep up and do not miss out; this artist is going to be making some real noise, be the first to hear it.
Hip Hop mic handler Omar Linx hooked up with Hunter Siegel and Pro Logic for production on his lastest release. Back To You, released via Buygore, has an intense yet ambient feel to it. Omar Linx always hits the mic with such passion and energy combined with melody and synths brings you a song you can really dig into.
Linx can Keep It Mellow too on the other hand with a free one released late last month by Marshmello. True to its name it stay real vibrant with a bassline synth and piano dancing with some vocals that bring the track down to earth. Gotta give it to Linx for not being a one styled one genre artists. Always pushing the boundaries as he grow.
