Good evening and welcome to Volume 75 of the Monday Blues & Beats. Shake off those weekend hangovers (especially those who attended Summer Jam) and download some fresh music. ScHoolboy Q links up with Kendrick for his new single, David Lynch with Lykke Li, Action Bronson with Wiz Khalifa, P Reign with A$AP Rocky and much more good music, so let’s get to it.
Q enlists his fellow TDE emcee to jump on his latest single, and I dare you to try and catch KDot’s flow on this one. Produced by in-house beat maker THC.
It didn’t take long for producers and DJs to jump on Goulding’s Alt-J cover, but my favourite by far comes from the Brooklyn duo that goes by The Golden Pony.
A real chilled out number from Bronson’s latest EP Saaab Stories – which is entirely produced by Harry Fraud (who really doesn’t know how to slow down). Wiz’s flow suits this beat better then PB and Jelly. Available on iTunes
The legendary David Lynch was back in the studio this year, and has a new album The Big Dream out next month. Ms. Li is an absolute perfect feature for this luscious instrumental. Available on iTunes
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Mr. Lamont, the once Aftermath signee links up with Lord Jamar in his ‘return.’ The two of them really chop this unique beat up, the synths and drum work is incredibly infectious.
Not necessarily a Kaskade track with depth, but does this dance number ever get your feet tapping and fingers snapping. Available on iTunes
I feel like Nipsey can literally do no wrong, every joint he drops is fire. Presumably off Victory Lap, J Stone delivers an undeniably contagious hook over laid back drooler from Big Blizz.
Marcel Everett is just 17 years old, hailing from Florida and crafting some pretty deep driven tunes already. “Pay Attention” just dropped less then 24 hours ago and already has a substantial playcount. If you’re looking for some instrumental music to lean back and crack a beer to, this is your jam.
Mac Miller aka Larry Fisherman dropped his sophomore LP today, titled Watching Movies With The Sound Off. He brings Jay Elec out of hiding for this number, and surprisingly the two of the sound good together. Album Available on iTunes
The four-piece dream poppers from Oakland have a new EP out called Trilingual. This is the lead single which they dispersed for free via Soundcloud.
Toronto’s P Reign enlists Rocky for a hard hitting number produced by Pro Logic.
A fitting name for their latest track that finds itself on the Scion 10th Anniversary Compilation album
Another one from the Scion compilation record – DZA links up with his go-to producer Harry Fraud for a trunk rattler.
Dan Black has found his way back to the studio, and new upbeat pop number featuring Kelis of all people – hoping Kid Cudi makes it on to his new project.
