90s throwback rnb from Sasha Keable and “Living Without You”. There’s Little Dragon vibes crossed with early Mary. J. Blige - so you know it’s going to be worth listening to.

Little Dragon: “Klapp Klapp”

It’s quite apt that Little Dragon’s new one, from their forthcoming fourth album, is called “Klapp Klapp” cause the first thing you hear is that crazy percussion and then that dirty synth breaks in. Good things to come. 

From the new album Nabuma Rubberband, due May 13.

Big Boi: “Mama Told Me ft. Little Dragon”

Living Legend, Rap Scholar, Art Major, cause I make Major Art

You can always count on those ATLiens to pull something different out of the bag that still manages to go hard. Big Boi’s latest album Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors reads as not simply a hip hop album but of an artist that likes to get out of their comfort zone reaching out to other influences. Collaborators include your usual hip hop features, A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Killer Mike, T.I. and Ludacris yet also you find Phantogram, Wavves and Little Dragon- its an interesting mix and it works.

Here’s “Mama Told Me” featuring Little Dragon- however the cut that made the album features Kelly Rowland. I prefer Little Dragon’s version cause I’m a sucker for them vocals.

How To Make it In America Mixtape: Volume Two

So I’m hooked on HBO’s How To Make It In America, its like Entourage but set in New York City and I actually like these guys, its a cool show so watch it. What is also super cool about it is its music selection. Music Supervisor Scott Vener (who also did Entourage and CW’s 90210) is so on point on his music selection its like he’s reading my mind. All the best up and coming blog favourites of the last year have been featured alongside old favourites too such as Theophilus London, Phantogram, The Rolling Stones, Quantic, Eric B & Rakim, Thievery Corporation, Joy Formidable, Waka Flocka Flame, Blue Oyster Cult and many many more. 

Scott Vener (Broke Mogul) has put out a mixtape for the show with Mick Boogie and it is great featuring Future Islands, Theophilus London, Joy Formidable, Little Dragon, M83, Avicii, Summer Camp amongst many others. Stream it below and download it here.
