Welcome to Volume 83 of Monday Blues & Beats. It’s been another fantastic week in the music world, ergo a solid mix coming at ya! D-WHY gives us the first taste of his upcoming EP, Frankie Rose with her second single, and Audio Push with their third. You’ll also find new Coldplay, Ta-Ku, King Chip, Kid Ink, 50 Cent and more. Hit the jump and get listening.
We posted Rose’s first single from her upcoming album Herein Wild (Sept. 24) in Vol. 78, and now the second sound has arrived in the form of a cover (The Damned)
I’ve been waiting patiently for new music from David Morris aka D-WHY, and as expected, he never disappoints. The bending of genres is part of his repertoire as he creates ‘Folk Trap,’ using Asaf Avidan “One Day.” This comes from the upcoming EP Young, Loved, Hated & Broked.
Why not have the legendary Wu Tang captain remix your track that came out over a year ago? The creative mind RZA possesses is often hard to fathom.
AHM always shows the HS87 boys love, and rightfully so. The duo’s free project Come As You Are just dropped today – SO GO GET IT. If you’re looking for a teaser, here it is, TIP on the feature and el capitano Hit-Boy on the beat.
It’s been almost two years since we’ve heard something new from the UK heartthrobs, but here it is, for the upcoming Hunger Games soundtrack. This number is of the epic, triumphant variety. Available on iTunes
I feel like Kid Ink’s been reaching for a hit song since day one, and I believe he’s got one on his hands now. Nothing profound, but boy is it catchy and addictive. Breezy on the hook and DJ Mustard on the beat.
We’ve been following Mr. Hemsworth for quite awhile, now the time has come for a new LP and here’s the first taste.
Ta-Ku gives the ‘break-up’ song a whole new look and feel.
Fifty comes back with vengeance, both conceptually and lyrically. Skylar Grey doing a solid hook as per usual and Alex Da Kid with the beat.
King Chip dropped his 44108 mixtape this past week, and here’s a couple standout joints from it. This one starts slow and gains a whole lot of momentum. Produced by WZRD (aka Cudi & Dot).
The second number comes with a bit more aggression, which is to be expected when Scarface is present. Produced by Trakksounds
Here’s the intro track from The 1975′s new self-titled album, and despite my mixed feelings on the project, the intro is reminiscent of The xx.
The latest from Rozay is a make-it-or-break-it for your speaker system – once you bump it, you’ll know exactly what i’m talking about. Produced by J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League
The latest victim of a Teen Daze fantasy world dreamscape is Yann Dulché, the French pianist/producer. The bass drums on this particular track will send you into a trance, guaranteed.
Another collaborative single from MadGibbs, a very synergetic emcee/producer duo.
The indie rock/pop scene get a club-anthem facelift…and it works, beautifully I might add. With a little more recognition, this track could easily be played and enjoyed in clubs around the world.
