Theophilius London- Last Name London

16 May

Theophilus London is moving in right where Kid Cudi dropped off. The first single off his new album, “Last Name London”, uses that same rock-influenced, electronic feel. The beat almost sounds like a twisted remix of Kanye‘s “Power”. Props to Theophilus for this upbeat summer jam.

KiD CuDi- A Man Named Scott

2 Apr

KiD CuDi is coming out with a new summer mixtape called, A Man Named Scott. He put out a brand new tune, “Capcom,” that you can check out below. In other news, KiD CuDi announced on his tumblr that he is quitting smoking marijuana and doing all drugs. Here is his statement:

I dont smoke weed anymore. Ill leave it to the kids. Im 27 with a business to run and i need to be alert and focused with my mind strong. For those who still get it on, smoke one in my memory as your favorite lonely stoner. This is not a joke. I know most of you wanna see me all drugged out and fucked up and i know misery loves company, but im sorry those days are over. I had a good run, Amsterdam and all. Im happy being sober. Im happy being a new me. Giva fuck who thinks of me different, you didnt care about me in the first place if you cant be proud and happy for me for growing and starting a new chapter. Im not your puppet or your tap dancing drug addict here to be your miserable muse, i always made music for me to help myself find understanding. I have finally learned from the words in my songs. I love who loves me and who really cares about me.

G. Love- 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

5 Mar

I like the new direction G. Love is taking his sound. The last few tracks I’ve heard seem to be much more blues, rather than hip-hop, oriented. Personally, I think this suits him much more. “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” is a Paul Simon cover. It features a cool acoustic guitar jam and some well made percussion. Give it a listen.

Kid Cudi- CuDi Zone (KillaGraham Remix)

27 Feb

So, Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” was getting all the remix love and I was waiting for someone to do something with the greatness of “CuDi Zone”. My wishes finally came true. KillaGraham is a very smart individual to do this great dubstep remix. Hopefully this doesn’t get played out too quick!

DOSVEC Mashups

12 Dec

So I’ve been seeing this name, DOSVEC, around the internet for some time now, but I never took the time to investigate who this artist is. Today, I came across one of his tracks, “Pursuit of Changes,” which is a mashup of Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” and Tupac’s “Changes”. It’s an awesome song and it motivated me to check out more of DOSVEC’s music. I found another solid track of his that is a mashup of Kaskade and Deadmau5’s “I Remember” and Mike Posner’s “Please Don’t Go”. What sets DOSVEC apart from other mashup artists is that he stays conscious of the themes in songs and puts them together accordingly to maintain the same vibe. Check these out.

Kid Cudi- Pursuit of Happiness (Lissie Cover)

8 Dec

So today I stumbled upon this Cudi cover by Lissie. The Ellie Goulding cover of a Temper Trap song I posted a while ago seemed to be a crowd pleaser and this is up the same ally so I thought I’d share. It is an interesting rendition of “Pursuit of Happiness” with a female vocalist and it’s pretty well done. Check out the video and download if you like it!

Nosaj Thing

11 Nov

A Los Angeles native, Jason Chung, also known as, Nosaj Thing,  has been steadily making progress rising up out of the underground electronic music scene. Inspired by the Hip-Hop radio stations, that his elementary bus school driver would play on his way to school, and the rave scene involving drum and bass, Chung figured out how to use his father’s old PC to start making music. His primitive ways, on an old PC, eventually evolved into his very unique style and progressive-experimental sound. Chung’s use of beat pads to trigger loops are the basis of his sets, and clearly shows his talent and innovation that sets him apart from the rest. Earlier in his career he played at an underground Los Angeles music event, Low End Theory, from which he gained exposure to new fans and also bigger artists such as Flying Lotus, Nobody, and Daedelus. Tonight, Nosaj Thing is playing his own headlining show at the El Rey Theatre just down Wilshire, so if you are in the Los Angeles area, I would drop whatever plans you have and go!
