Los Angeles rapper King Lil G is making huge waves in the underground as his hit singles “Hopeless Boy,” and “Welcome to L.A.,” among others continue to gain traction. G has been touring relentlessly this year hitting dozens of cities on his Blessed by God Tour this summer. We caught G at his sold out show in Boulder, CO and he didn’t disappoint.
Rising producer DeFunk just dropped this glitch-hop heater “Next Level” on HighChai records. Featuring a hip hop sample as the crux of the composition, there’s hard hitting drums and sharp crunchy synths that carry the track. We hope to hear this at a festie or two over the summer. Enjoy!
FKJ just released an impressive live music video of him performing “Die With A Smile,” one of the numerous beautiful tracks from his latest project, French Kiwi Juice. The video is the perfect match for the laid back, aquarium vibe.
Wu-Tang Clan straight up blessed HBO’s Silicon Valley with a brand new track “Don’t Stop,” for the show’s soundtrack. With appearances from Inspectah Deck, Method Man and Raekwon and a flawless beat from RZA this is classic Killer Bees shit. In 2017, we’ll take it! Enjoy!
Kendrick Lamar’s single “DNA.” is definitely one of the most popular racks he’s released to date. He’s recently given the track a few new lines in partnership with the NBA. The unreleased version of this track sounds like it was made just for this commercial, but we are hoping the new version pops up soon!
As another installment of the Still Movin Mondays weekly release, Demrick dropped off this laid back, self proclaimed “summer shit,” the DJ Hoppa produced “Superficial.” The bouncy track has a great feel-good vibe, and a unique message, as Demrick explores the less greedy side of ambition with more confidence in his voice than ever. This one’s definitely going on the summer playlist!
Rising star Mija just dropped a brand new track “Time Stops,” courtesy of Adult Swim Singles, as part of their ambitious 52 songs in 52 weeks. She originally debuted the track live a few months back, and people have been wondering what it was ever since! Energetic upbeat vibes and stimulating synths drive this magical journey of a song people are describing as happy hardcore. You might be hearing this at a festival or two this summer. Enjoy, and look out for the next installment of Adult Swim Singles!
Big Sean’s latest album “I Decided” has seen great success so far with a new video for “Jump Out The Window”. Big Sean performed this album single at the MTV Movie and TV Awards and followed it up with this video-game themed official video for the track.
Spanish producer Cookin Soul just dropped off this unexpected blend of two of this year’s biggest hit’s, Future’s “Mask Off,” and Childish Gambino’s “Redbone.” Surprisingly, it works, with a flipped version of Redbone as a soulful backdrop for Future’s apathetic vocals. The contrast is dope, and Soul managed to keep the integrity of both songs. Bonus points for making this shit on the SP-404 for the analog heads.
NEON84 is the brainchild of producers Beni Barca and Manotti da Vinci. They caught our attention with cool artwork, and kept us around with some dope original music.

“Really pumped on filming this cover and getting the chance to open up for Excision this Friday on March 24th in Houston, TX. For all you drummers out there, playing at 150 and 140 bpm is what I consider a “sweet spot” for fills, beats, tricks, etc. Its the tempo for most dubstep and trap music, so listen to some of the artists in that genre and have fun with it!!” @Dylan Taylor
Norwegian DJ/Producer and record aficionado Fredfades has been doing his thing for a minute, but we just caught wind, and we’re glad we did. This dude is the real deal, with perfectly crafted beats that balance classic sounds with modern waviness as the foundation for equally impressive ear for the curation of dope featured artists from around the world.
