Gazzo continues to dish out music while hitting the road with Kap Slap on his Breakout Tour. This time around, we get a very Gazzo-esque upbeat production, in this remix of “Tat Tat Tat” by Afika Nx. The bouncy synths pair nicely with the vocal, with the vocal echoing through the climactic beat. I’m always impressed by the range of vocalists Gazzo has remixed, most notably Fall Out Boy, Jessie J, 2Pac, Air Dubai, and American Authors (to name a handful). Clearly a versatile group, all got a dose of the Gazzo ingredient that makes your hips shake and feet bounce – now add new rapper Afika Nx to the list. Enjoy the FREE download!

The Brig was a producer we introduced a month or so back with his GDXTAEYANG remix, and followed up with an original titled “Intergalactic Pirate.” Now, we have another original that’s worth taking note of. “Megalomania” is a Crime Kitchen released bass heavy track with soothing high pitched synth that fit over the heavy electronic theme like a glove to provide a soothing yet energizing feel all in one! Is it possible? The Brig says so. However, once the main drop hits – it’s all signs go from there. The mixture of well fit melodies with dubby feels makes for a stellar final product.

Yeezy Season? Drizzy Season? I don’t even know what day it is anymore. The rap gods have blessed us with even more content today with the drop of the official video for “Blessings.” Sean takes another stroll down a greyscale cloudy road, Drizzy rocks a questionable beanie, and Kanye looks down upon us peasants from the sky. All the makings of a classic in 2015.
Meant to post this one quite a while ago, so bear with me. Real Slow absolutely transforms Destiny Child’s absolute classic, “Say My Name,” into his very own production titled “Way Up.” With intricate high pitched pops, high pitched vocal arrangements, and other fun filled hip-hop vibed alterations, this makes for a real interesting and entertaining listen. Don’t miss out on this one, it’ll have you in awe.

Bronsolino’s got a big year slated for 2015. With the release of “Mr. Wonderful” around the corner, listeners are blessed with the second single. Action recruits Chance the Rapper to assist him on his Mark Ronson-produced singing debut. Taking on a completely different sound than his previous release “Easy Rider,” Bronson seems to be following Chance’s lead on this one. It may sound like a bizarre concept on paper, but this track only has us more excited for the album.
We’re only 3 months in and it’s already safe to say 2015 has been a better year for hip-hop than 2014. At the helm of this avalanche of new tracks sits Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West. With all three on the brink of major album releases, listeners have been blessed with a barrage of new music left and right. With spontaneous releases taking over, (Drake, Beyonce, etc.) Kanye decided to debut his “Only One” follow up, “All Day” live at the Brit Awards this year. In typical Yeezy fashion, he belts out the song in front of a blank backdrop, only this time he is accompanied by affiliate Sekta and a mob of hypemen. Check out the wild performance below, and grab the MP3 on iTunes HERE if you’re into that kinda thing.
Another phenom indie house jam by Alex & Drew, they’re definitely gonna be doing major damage down here for Miami Music Week and we can’t wait to be apart of their rampage. I use the word “fleek” very selectively, but the piano in this song is on fleeeeeeek.
