Wicked Games

What You Need

Loft Music

This House Of Balloons Mixtape just has blown me away.. First Frank Ocean and now The Weekend, R&B is taking some heavy steps and I'm loving it. The Weekend consists out Canadian lead singer Abel Tesfaye and producer Jeremy Rose and together they might just have released my favorite R&B project of the year. I guess that is also the reason why The Weekend is cosigned by fellow Toronto artist Drake. Don't sleep on this one.

"Following the highly regarded first-release from hip-hop innovator Shawn J. Period, the Rude Movements crew deliver an amazing debut from young-gun Taylor McFerrin. Conceived in his Brooklyn bedroom studio, Taylor delivers 3 original tracks that flex his exceptional abilities as a producer, musician and beatboxer. From the title track 'Broken Vibe's featuring Vincent Franklin, to the hip-hop swagger of 'Georgia' and the Brasilian flavour of 'The Song I Promised You', this EP is an impressive beginning to his solo career.

Steven A. Clark – Stripes (EP) (2011)

The debut album of the singer/songwriter Steven A.Clark..

"Born in Little Rock, Arkansas Steven A. Clark began his musical
education at an early age "I remember my mom playing a lot of Sade,
Anita Baker, Boyz II Men, Tracy Chapmen, Stevie Wonder." Steven
was raised in Fayetteville, NC on a heavy dose of sports and music,
it was mainly Nas and N.E.R.D's "In search of..." that inspired him
to start writing. "I think it was the mixture of all those genre's fused
into one cohesive sound that changed my perspective on music". After
high school Steven made the decision to move further down south to
pursue his dream of making music and experience a new culture, a
new life. It was in Miami where he began to master his craft of writing
and producing and where he currently chooses to call home."

Know:Juander – A Kid Love, beta (2009)

01.Memories Ft. Raymond Soott
02.Intro Window
03.Mom's Street Canvas
04.This Long Keep On
05.Pause That Beat
06.The Love Beta Interlude
08.Drummer...A Little Bit
09.Painting A Still
10.A Little Bit... More
11.Determination Ft. Jarell Perry

"Project was completely produced by knowjuander for Genius Kid LLC. Album features “Memories,” a song originally recorded by Raymond Scott, and a vocal feature by Jarell Perry on “Determination.”
The spirit of the record is carried on the thought that when we were all kids, we truly experienced unadulterated love. The feelings we possessed as children were the most authentic. So the title implies that the work in full is the most authentic expression of (love) for, in this case, undoubtedly, hip hop that could be shown. The usage of “beta” as a suffix on this project has more than the mere meaning that this project is in a user-tested phase. Loosely, though, there is the desire for those who pick up this project to try it out, try to understand not only the material, but the artist also. Moreover, to try to give the same energy to their crafts, whether it musical or not.
Personal highlights of the record are “This Long Keep On” and “Determination,” as well as the powerful brag-swag track, “Drummer… A Little Bit.”
From the production angle I would definitely highlight “A Little Bit… More,” as it may have been the most difficult of the samples to chop that were used to create the soundtrack of this lyrical outing.
Personally, I feel that I shine on “Painting a Still,” which is my favorite of all the songs, “Determination,” being second. Combined, this project is more than six months of production and a season or so of actual writing and crafting songs in various settings and sittings."

Used to have this one on repeat often during the summer of 2009....KnowJuander is a pretty unfamiliar name for most of the people but A Kid Love Beta is a very solid and interesting project!


Ghostpoet - Peanut Butter Blues and Melancholy Jam (2011)

1. OneTwos
2. Run Run Run
3. Us Against Whatever Ever
4. Finished I Ain’t
5. Longing For The Night
6. Yeah Pause
7. I Just Don’t Know
8. Survive It
9. Gaaasp
10. Cash and Carry Me Home
11. Garden Path
12. Liiines

"British rapper-producer Ghostpoet made a splash on the hip-hop blogosphere in mid-2010, when he dropped a well-received free EP, The Sound of Strangers. Along with some indie cred created by a Micachu appearance, Ghostpoet was praised for his strong sense of narrative and darker take on traditional boom-bap. He would follow-up several months later with “Cash and Carry Me Home,” which stood as the lead single from his proper debut, 2011's Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam. As the track indicates, Ghostpoet's knack for story-driven tracks filled with self-deprecation remain at the forefront of his approach, as does his electronic-influenced production."

"...If St Etienne are about evoking memories of a London so idyllic it's almost illusory, Keep Shelly do the same for every European beach resort, from Ayia Napa to Ibiza. This is the sound of lack and loss, of what My Bloody Valentine termed "emptiness inside". It'll transform your recent holiday romance into the most resonant bliss imaginable." - The Guardian

There Will Be Tears
We All Try

"Meet Frank Ocean, the newest member of the Odd Future group and one of the brightest young talents to come out of 2011
so far. His debut album Nostalgia, Ultra released last week (for free) and to be right up front, it’s beyond anything we could’ve ever expected. The album displays a style of rap that’s been attempted countless times, but never really executed. We’re talking about the half rapping, half singing trend Kanye, Cudi, and Lupe most notably made famous. They all attempted it, but to be honest, it’s just never sounded this good. One of the main reasons for that is Frank Ocean can actually sing. Like, REALLY sing. And not to mention the production on this is remarkable. Space-y, synth heavy beats float like a cloud underneath Ocean’s impeccable voice…giving each track on the album that much more appeal.

Compared to the mainstream r&b/hip-hop music we hear on the radio now-a-days, Ocean is a breath of fresh air. His sound is distinctively soulful/r&b influenced, yet done in a way that could pass for something totally different. As Odd Future’s website states, “It’s Smooth Ass Music About Bitches, Relationships And Being A Rich Young Nigga…But In A Swagged Out Way.” Do yourself a huge favor and grab Ocean’s debut album Nostalgia, Ultra now below."

I'm gone

Now Her

"Hard Mix‘s Defaults LP starts with flipping through channels, a pretty standard sound-trope and here it doesn’t sound pretty, cutting all the way out like a badly loading stream. He settles on a female voice, someone who is probably famous but we can’t put our finger on her, talking about the ecstasy of live performance. It’s a clever irony, contrasting nostalgia-beat to the world of the stage, especially in light of Hard Mix’s super-interior last video, shot inside a nondescript suburban house, potted plants by the door and basement La-Z-Boys. For a free album it feels generous, showcasing more breadth than we’ve heard from Hard Mix so far, 10 songs of legitimate piano playing, strangers talking, and buried drums. Moody, amazing.
