Yasiin Gaye - Travellin’ Man Pt. II (Distant Lovers Mix) - Amerigo Gazaway

Yasiin Bey has recently been in the headlines due to troubles while traveling or rather, re-entering the country of his birth. We’ll have to watch how this one plays out. I remember practicing scratching to Travellin’ Man on vinyl in 2004-5. Anywho.. Here’s a cut from Yasiin Gaye - Amerigo Gazaway’s project mashing Yasiin Bey and Marvin Gaye. Enjoy and good luck to Mr Bey.

Give Away The Headband Ft. RHCP, BOB & 2 Chainz - The Melker Project

The Melker Project is back at it with this latest in a long line of incredible remix projects. This time the homie goes after the Red Hot Chili Peppers and smashes some of their classics into modern songs. Peep the whole project here - Red Hot Trilli Peppers - The Melker Project

Shorty Swing My Way ft KP & Envyi - The Melker Project

KP & Envyi’s “Shorty Swing My Way”, is atop my 90’s club banger list. Those drums? Killin em… That said, I love what Mayoral homie, The Melker Project, does with his remix of the jam. Mr Melker adds:

If you were alive in the 90s, you were most likely a fan of “Shorty Swing My Way” by KP & Envyi. I’ve considered remixing this track for a long time and finally found the right inspiration. I was thinking, “what would this track sound like if it was made today by a modern hip hop producer?” (like me, for example)”… and this is what I came up with. The track starts with an acoustic R&B feel, featuring yours truly tickling the keys. As the track progresses, it becomes more of a crunk banger, later moving into an uptempo club track. I hope you like it - I’m really happy with the way it turned out!

Radioactive - Imagine Dragons ft Kendrick Lamar

Daaaaaaamn. If you caught the Grammys or simply caught the Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar performance of the remixed Radioactive, you likely are like me and secretly wished you could cop the track for yourself. Well you, my friend, are lucky. Imagine Dragons and K. Dot hit the studio and the remix is now available. Stream it above and download on iTunes - Radioactive - Imagine Dragons ft Kendrick Lamar

Thank you Jah! Outkast to Return to the Stage on 40 Festival Tour

outkast

Somebody pinch me… Is it really so? The legendary duo Outkast aka Andre 3000 and Big Boi are reuniting for a 40 festival tour in honor of 20 years of Outkast. This is a must see for all music heads. From the gents themselves:

“It’s truly an honor to celebrate 20 years and still be free to do music the way we choose,” said Big Boi. “Don’t just think outside the box, know that there is no box. I’m looking forward to rocking the stage with my Bro Ski and to all the fans - stank you smelly much, this is for y’all!”

"And imagine, all we wanted to do was rap! I am thankful to have been a part of a group that allowed me to explore anything that came to mind and have fun doing it. Returning to the stage together is the most exciting way for us to thank everyone for their 20 years of supporting Outkast,” said André 3000.
