*Throwback*/Hip-Hop – Juelz Santana – Mic Check

This explosive 2005 track, aptly titled for the block burning qualities it possesses, was by far one of the biggest treats off his second record What The Game’s Been Missing! Juelz spits more crack than Rick James in his heyday with this classic track, so sit back, light something, and ENJOY (as usual)! Dipset fans stand up!

Electro-House – R3hab – Chainsaw Showers

R3hab let go this free download of the never released instrumental of LMFAO – Champagne Showers (R3hab Remix) to thank the fans for helping him reach 120,000 Facebook likes. It’s only right that we oblige him for the generosity so check out the instrumental featuring some nice fat bass synths and light upper leads that really come together well in a well orchestrated and absolutely filthy drop. Make sure to throw R3hab a couple more likes to his Facebook so we can keep getting these free treats!

Enjoy!

Hip-Hop – Logic – War Vet (Rack City Remix)

Logic’s back at it again in a perfect way hopping on one of my favorite beats to be making the freestyle rounds lately in the form of Rack City. He continues his streak of lyrically demolishing every single song he spits on so check this one out if you haven’t heard it already!

Enjoy!

Indie – Swim Deep – King City

This is one of those posts where I have nothing but a song for you. I can tell you that Swim Deep is comprised of three people by the name of Austin Higgy and Zachary from West Midlands in the UK and they make some sweet ambient grunge pop. You can check these guy’s SoundCloud and Facebook pages if you’d like to try to find out more but this song King City is a really laid back tune that kinda has a nice Foster the People vibe going for them.

Enjoy

House – Qulinez – Troll (Sick Individuals Remix)

Already a frontrunner for one of the top tracks released in 2012, Qulinez’s monster track Troll gets the remix treatment by Sick Individuals. A great rework that keeps most of the integrity of the original lead voices while giving a great drop makeover.

Enjoy!

Hip-Hop – Buddy ft. Kendrick Lamar – Staircases (Prod. by Pharrell)

Pharrell unleashes some classic Neptunes style production on this track which has his new protege Buddy hooked up with the kid from Compton, Kendrick Lamar. This song got huge feedback from the SXSW premiere a couple weeks ago and now it’s confirmed to be on Buddy’s Idle Time project. A really jazzy track to mellow out to so catch the download and enjoy!

Preview – Lenny Kravitz – Superlove (Avicii Remix) + UMF Live Set

It seems to me that we’ve run out of things to do with guitars and passed the baton over to turntables and computers because DJs are absolutely the new rock stars of the world. Fitting with this theme, Avicii took Lenny Kravitz’s new single Superlove and gave it the feel good progressive house touch that we come to associate with the superstar Swedish DJ and he premiered it live at Ultra Music Festival after he premiered his OTHER remix of Madonna’s newest single Girl Gone Wild. Rock stars remixing rock stars sounds perfectly good to me so check out the preview of his newest song and his entire UMF set while your at it! [UPDATE: Found the CDQ version of the preview given out the Avicii's SoundCloud!]

Hip-Hop – Game – The City ft. Kendrick Lamar

Although a little late to the party in regards to the release of this record, “The City” is one of the strongest records off of Game’s latest record The R.E.D. Album (which dropped last July) AND he just recently released a video to it. The lyrics are what old-school Game fans would appreciate and the video does a nice job playing on the main sample in the song, courtesy of a Cool & Dre production. WEST SIDEEE!
