Rising rap star Trinidad James became the talk of the town last year when he signed to Def Jam and released the ubiquitous “All Gold Everything.” Well, to maximize its’ potential, he’s gone and made it an all-star ATL affair on the remix. So that means bringing in T.I., Young Jeezy and 2 Chainz to [...]

The last time we heard a new Suede song was a decade ago. If you’ve forgotten “Attitude,” well, you’re not alone. But the once-great UK band have not just fully reunited but they have a brand new album called Bloodsports due in March. To give us a taste of what Suede circa 2K13 sounds like, [...]

Eminem covers aren’t something you hear very often from female MCs, and so NYC rapper Angel Haze is definitely on to something here. I suppose “Cleaning Out My Closet” works better than most of Shady’s tracks, but considering the struggles a bisexual, half-Native American MC faces, it really works for her. About the song, Angel [...]

Purity Ring have altered their “Belispeak” single to suit the madcap flow of Danny Brown. According to the duo’s label 4AD, Brown reached out to Purity Ring’s Twitter and “reimagined ‘Belispeak’s’ fairy-tale creepiness as an evocative snapshot of his childhood in Detroit, while Corin Roddick reworked the production into a maximalist banger.” Stream it below [...]

Before James Blake became the post-dubstep poster boy, London trio Darkstar were guiding the way with their subtle fusion of bass music, pop and R&B.
