Monday Blues & Beats Vol. 73

Moon Boots - Love Strong

Happy Memorial Day to all my American followers, hope you enjoyed your long weekend. Blues & Beats Volume 73 coming at you today with new music from Ryan Hemsworth, Black Hippy, Mikky Ekko, Travi$ Scott and much more.

Ryan Hemsworth – Perfectly

The Halifax producer/DJ let go of a free project this week titled Still Awake. If you haven’t done so already, I suggest you download the entire tape here, it’s blissfully beautiful.

ScHoolboy Q – Hell Of A Night

Here’s the latest number from Black Hippy’s Q, and personally one of the best tracks i’ve heard from him. ScHoolboy intends to drop his third LP Oxymoron later this year. Produced by DJ Dahi – I was searching endlessly for a sample, but a couple hours ago Dahi announced on Twitter that there was no sample used.

Mikky Ekko – Disappear (Ruff Demo)

Stunning. Mikky Ekko has really solidified a place in the music industry with his unique skill set and ability to leave it all on the table while recording. This simplistically beautiful instrumental was produced by Mikky himself, and will surely warrant the repeat button on my iPod.

Travi$ Scott – Hell Of A Night

This comes from Scott’s latest mixtape Owl Pharaoh, and one of the standout tracks. DJ Dahi helped with the production and added a unique unexpected sample; Fleet Foxes’s “Oliver James.” Oddly enough, this not only serves as the second track to come out this week called “Hell Of A Night,” but both are produced by DJ Dahi.

Travi$ Scott – Bandz (feat. Meek Mill)

On the other end of the spectrum, you get a street banger with an assist from Meek Milly and production from Scott himself.

HAERTS – All The Days

Here’s the latest from the Brooklyn-based Indie Pop quintet. With only a couple songs out there, they’ve managed to stir up some noise in the blogosphere. Their debut album is expected sometime this year.

MGK – Pe$o (feat. Pusha T & Meek Mill)

Machine Gun Kelly enlists two of the more aggressive emcees from their respective camps. Burd & Keyz bring a hard beat that includes a Aloe Blacc sample “I Need a Dollar.”

Moon Boots – Love Strong

Moons Boots would set any 90s dance floor on fire with this nu-disco flare.

Nipsey Hussle – Respect Ya Passion

Nipsey drops another rumoured track from the illusive Victory Lap. My favourite of the three joints so far – all that soul courtesy of Bink on the beat.

Black Hippy – U.O.E.N.O. (Remix)

Was never a big fan of the original, but this is what I call a remix – KDot, Q, Jay Rock and Soul are undeniable.

Kendrick Lamar – Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe (International Remix) [feat. Emeli Sandé]

Whoever hops on this beat sounds good, but Emeli’s naturally smooth delivery suits this joint perfectly.

Ludacris – Mad Fo (feat. Meek Mill, Chris Brown, Swizz Beatz & Pusha T)

Luda enlists some A-Listers for one of the standout tracks from his latest mixtape #IDGAF. Despite the lack of eloquence in the project name, this beat from Remo The Hitmaker makes up for it.
