Lauryn Hill – “Doo Wop (That Thing) (Akouo Rework)”
Jul 2013 14

Now that Lauryn Hill is doing her 3 month stint in Jail she’s getting a lot more attention. Akouo for example just took one of her classic tracks “Doo Wop (That Thing),” and updated it with layering Ms. Hill’s voice tweaked at different pitches for an interesting result. Pretty fresh and free, download below.

From taking a hit off an oxygen tank in a snakeskin jacket to discovering a mysterious VHS tape, Coco Morier’s official video for “Hallucination”, directed by Nick Ebeling, is a Lynch-ian inspired cinematic love story that finds itself surrealistically unfolding in reverse. The song is on Coco’s “Strangers May Kiss” EP and was co-written and produced by Pontus Winnberg and Christian Karlsson (Miike Snow) and Magnus Lidehäll.

Here’s the latest visuals for one of the many standout tracks off Chance The Rapper’s latest mixtape ‘Acid Rap’, which if you haven’t heard yet is bordering on awesome and is a refreshing new direction in an old-fashion sorta way. “Smoke Again” featuring Ab-Soul is chill and rocks the bass hard, his laid back flow infused with his equally laid-back beats make this a win-win.

This song is why dark pop can be so amazing. “Habits” is a perfected contrasting pop song, the dark lyrics of Tov Lo mixed with the up-beat tempo make this my fav pop song of 2013. The best part of this song is that it will most likely never be played on the radio due to it’s controversial lyrics, making this a true dark pop ballad. So messed up yet so true…

Daftside – “Get Lucky”
Jun 2013 28

If you’re already tired from hearing Get Lucky a thousands time over on the radio then maybe this will revive some soulfunkness to your long weekend. Nicolas Jaar’s Darkside project, here renamed Daftside, takes all that aspiration and sucks out every drop of it from the original source. This album, mellow, strange and really just a series of clips uploaded to Soundcloud, remixes RAM in full, deconstructing it to resemble a thin, hollowed-out version of its original self. It’s an internet-redux model of Daft Punk’s work, a scratchy counterpart that sees virtue in the kind of ultra-low production values and consumption models that RAM veers away from.
