Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 18

Kanye West did his thing last week, having every major blog around the world talking about you; check. First it was “Theraflu,” where he tweeted the artistically provocative artwork. Then, the chatter surrounding a G.O.O.D. music compilation album surfaced with a single featuring label mates. Mr. West has this innate ability to get everyone in the music industry, be it artists, Russell Simmons or bloggers; to hone in on whatever he’s up to.

Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica finally graces the music scene with a fresh new track.

Urban Noize does a fine job of remixing the West/Fiasco “Touch The Sky” single with some Florence Welch vocals.

The Swedish Dream Pop group JJ is working on their third LP and gave us a taste of it this week.

New singles from Kid Ink, Curren$y, Dragonette, T.I., Blue Foundation, Fat Joe and more.
