Adam Tensta x L-Wiz - 'Trouble'


The trend of spitting over dubstep seems to be a never ending fad cause here Adam Tensta teams up with the award winning production duo L-Wiz (Claes Rosén & Ola Näslund) for 'Trouble' released on All Out Dubstep (cop off iTunes here).


I don't know, I love the production but the rap is this is too damn slow for my taste, it feels off but it will be interesting to see how the Hypem-crowd reacts to this one.

Kelow (US) Live @ Klubb Freshest - Stockholm, Sweden July 14


Sadly one of the most overlooked releases of 2011 was without a doubt Southern Maryland native and rapper Kelow's free debut album "Colored Pencils" (download here) on which she delivered a great piece of future in 13 tracks. Kelow's carefree, confident and expressive raps shines through in great tunes like 'Give It to Me', 'Press Buttons' ft. Robyn and 'LOUD!' to name a few and over all the album felt very ahead of it's time.

DJ Eskilate - 'Ice'


Here's a piece of proof on why I love soundcloud so damn much, you can simply stumble over some great pieces of music by just one click. Like this nice take on Wiley's old 'Morgue'-riddim for example and some other old eskibeats elements rudely mashed together into something new and great by someone with the best name ever: DJ Eskilate part of the Academy Awards Music Group.


Is someone in the United States trying to piss Wiley off? I really don't know, shit is good anyhow:

Melé ft. Kano - 'Beamer' Official Video

Yasmin - 'No Woman, No Cry' (Bob Marley Cover)


If it's one single thing I can't stand with summer it's all them soft dudes that dusts off their old autistic guitars and tries to do their own "special" interpretation of Bob Marley's old 'No Woman, No Cry', it's instant cringe-moment every single time.

Luckily Yasmin is on a whole another level when she takes on the hit from 1974 like she did back in May of 2011 live at Maida Vale studios in London, a recording that she just put up on soundcloud:

Steve Aoki & Angger Dimas ft. Iggy Azalea - 'Beat Down' Official Video

Trina ft. LoLa Monroe & Shawnna - 'Bad Bychhhh' Free DL


While at least I impatiently wait for Trina to unleash the official video for 'I'm Back (Back 2 Business)', from which the picture above is taken, I actually started to hyperventilate of seeing this combo together on the same track. I mean come on, Trina, LoLa Monroe and Shawnna? = TRIFORCE! Now I'm only wishing Dev and Iggy Azalea could drop their collaboration as well. Listen and download below:

Cholombian ft. Chippy Nonstop - 'Dip 2 This' Free DL


British producer and DJ Cholombian (real name Mitch Stevens) is a new acquaintance to me but a real pleasant one I must say. To celebrate reaching 5000 followers on Soundcloud he let's loose this track called 'Dip 2 This' featuring one of First Up!'s faves Chippy Nonstop, and it can only be described with the following two words: absolutely amazing!


Mellow, intriguing, soothing and suits my drained frazzled mind so well right now. Listen and download for free off the soundcloud below:

Jammer - 'Big Man' Single Release & Official Video


What happens if you dust off a six year old song like Skepta's huge 'Duppy' (on which Jammer guested), change the song title, remove MC Creed's chanting voice and also reworks a few lines here and there like "I'm a big man but I'm not 40" instead of "[...] I'm not 30" (since Jammer hit that big 30 last month)? Invite some new (and old guests from the original) to spit on it like Viper, JME, B Live, Scratchy, Lay Z, Sox and Flowdan? Well, you have created = easy recipe for a hit.


'Big Man' dropped on Big Dada a couple of days ago and comes with remixes from DJ Q, Sticky and Zed Bias (cop off iTunes here and stream the full single release on Spotify here. The official video is directed by Dego Visions & Igniter:

Charli XCX - 'You're the One' Official Video & OFWGKTA's The InternetRemix ft. Mike G

On the release the Ariel Rechtshaid-produced single is remixed by Blood Orange but the most interesting remix comes from OFWGKTA's Syd tha Kyd and Matt Martians' constellation The Internet featuring Mike G. That one was featured on that "Heartbreaks and Earthquakes"-mixtape I wrote about a couple of weeks ago in time for the Hultsfred-festival. Have a listen to the it below as someone on the OF-forum has been crafty enough to make a cut out of the mix and grab the mixtape in full by downloading it here.


The official video for 'You're the One' dropped yesterday and at first it seems very reminiscent of Robyn's video for 'Call Your Girl-Friend' when she dances around in Buffalo's in a big warehouse but later on, nah not at all actually. With that said, watch the Dawn Shadforth-directed visuals below:

Branko ft. Dominique Young Unique - 'Going In Hard' Official Video &Starfoxxx Remix
