ZeeX “Dearth To All Mermaids” reminds me of an Excision type track, in terms of melodic structure and a lot of Heavy and Dark rythmic attacks. Check it out here first and you can learn more about ZeeX here.

Brooklyn MC Joey Bada$$ linked with the West Coast’s Schoolboy Q to create “Rockabye Baby,” a pure hip hop banger. With a hard beat courtesy of Dial-1-900 & Chuck Strangers, both artists do what they do best, and the result is flawless. This is a must hear, and we’re looking forward to Joey’s upcoming album AABA.
Veteran producer Amp Live has been blurring lines between genres for close to two decades. From boom bap and reggae beginnings as one half of legendary Oakland hip hop duo Zion I, to filthy dubstep productions alongside the likes of Bassnectar and others, Amp Live proves that there are no rules in music. His latest offering, the Atmostphere EP on Gravitas Records has little bit of everything we’ve come to hope for from the versatile producer. There’s elements of poppy EDM influence, classic hip hop, reggae, trap, dubstep and little dash of something that’s unique to Amp himself. With some awesome features from Eligh, Lana Shea, and Cristina Soto to round it out, this EP is a great listen for any music fan.

Flume continues to be one of the most impressive musicians in the electronic DJ/Producer realm, where “actual talent” sometimes comes into question. He once again hit the mark with the super dark, bass heavy “Enough,” which features a few scorching verses and an understated hook from King Push himself. This shit goes.
Raekwon continues to stay relevant after decades in the game. He tapped the much younger G-Eazy for “Purple Brick Road,” a J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League produced banger that successfully blends Chef’s boom-bap roots with the modern radio appeal you’d expect from Eazy and J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League. Enjoy!
G.O.O.D. Music’s Desiigner returns with another looosie, “Outlet.” Whether or not you fuck with Desiigner, he always keeps it interesting, and “Outlet” is no exception, plus anything produced by Mike Dean and the G.O.O.D. team always warrants a listen.
Chance is back with a new video for “Same Drugs” off of his latest project Coloring Book.
