On May 24th The Jet Age of Tomorrow will release their third full length album The JellyFish Mentality for free. Made up of musicians Matt Martians (The Internet/Odd Future) and Hal Williams (Pyramid Vritra) the duo’s upcoming release will feature an impressive list of collaborators including SBTRKT, Hodgy Beats, Kilo Kish, Jesse Boykins III and Earl Sweatshop. In the lead up to this weeks release they’ve uploaded a looming new a two-part single titled ‘ON!’ to their soundcloud, listen below…
Tyler, the Creator is stepping shit up – he’s only gone and got Erykah Badu on a soulful new track of his. Taken off his upcoming album Wolf, ‘Treehome95′ also employs the vocal talents of Coco O., who along with Badu takes over the track entirely. Tyler himself isn’t featured on the twinkling record, a poignant move on his behalf in my opinion. This certainly embraces a much more mature direction for Odd Future’s leading man, interested to hear how the rest of the songs shape up.
P.s Hey @FatBellyBella – when’s that new album coming? #wemissyou
After announcing the title of his third solo LP Wolf and unveiling it’s multiple album covers, Odd Future’s hyperactive leader has returned with a new video for his single ‘Domo 23′. The video is everything you’d expect it to be – full of dodgy (fat) wrestlers, tight gold pants, blonde wigs and a healthy dose of spitting. Enjoy.
Her work with Odd Future’s The Internet, combined with the stylised approach featured on her debut HomeSchool EP introduced Kilo Kish as an intriguing newcomer. Her indecisive approach to songs now sees her sing-rapping over what she calls a ‘Creepwave’ beat – an eerie soundbed of wailing drones and soft padded percussion.
This past weekend saw one of the years biggest festivals take place in Philadelphia; Curated by Jay-Z and sponsored by Budweiser the 2-day ‘Made in America’ event saw performances from the likes of Jay-Z (full performance above), Kanye West & G.O.O.D Music, D’Angelo, Jay Electronica, Janelle Monae, Drake, Jill Scott, Run DMC, Odd Future and others. Take a peep up top and after the jump to see some of the highlight performances…
Henry Ashcroft, The Blank, is a producer, photographer and auditory portrait creator from Perth. He dabbles in gritty synths with a hint of fuzz and acquired the beautiful vocal talent of Steffaloo for this one. Slowly clicking its way into a head nodding monster which messes with ones emotions, brash stabs which seem to contradict the vocals but for some reason it works. Turn the speakers up for the bass injections and keep eyes peeled for future collaborations between the two. You can listen to some of Henry’s older material over on here.
Can we ever thank legendary Todd Edwards enough for the influence he’s had on Future Garage, Post Dubstep, Bass, or whatever sub-genre label purists prefer to avoid like the plague today? Ahead of his time in the 90s, the originally New Jersey born producer still knocks out the tunes. Striking up a relationship between trademark shuffly House with 2-Step syncopation and, well, even cheeky robotic Grime on this cut, he dedicates it all to the big smoke by dicing up Sweeney Todd/Johnny Depp’s “there is no place like London”. Truer vox hath not been skewered. Big love all day, every day to Todd the God and the melting pot capital of the world… Home.
This track finally get it’s official single release tomorrow on Sweat It Out!
Ladies & gents, it’s that moment… the forthcoming collaboration between two behemoths of experimental, soulful sound. One a scientist, one a sorceress, ‘See Thru To U’ takes both artists love of progressive Jazz and indulges it to their hearts content. The arrangement’s spectacular as are the Thundercat riffs sliding between glaciers of percussion, tribal thundering and layers of stacked instrumentation and vocals. It all feels like it’s been carved out of some lucid DMT trip and brought back to Earth with uncompromising brilliance.
Until The Silence Comes? The silence has been broken. October 2nd is the date. Meanwhile, the Fly-Lo and Badu collabo LP is on hold, but fingers crossed, could materialize in future.
Herefordshire born Charli XCX has employed Odd Future’s off-shoot band The Internet to remix her single ‘You’re the One’. Due out on September 3rd via Asylum Records, the remix features the digital-Funk imprint left by Syd the Kid & Matt Martian on other refixes they’ve produced over the past few months. Additional verse from Mike G also included in this version.
Following the release of yesterday’s ‘St James’, Lucille Ghatti wastes no time and is rapidly firming her place among the new class of contemporary R&B. Screwing with influences from Hip Hop, the golden era of 90′s Soul and coming full circle with her love of Southern Trap, Lucille’s recent attempt nods to it all.
Producing it in around 3 weeks aided by her beloved herbs, High Grade plays out raw; Ghatti’s sound remains fresh and vibrant. With production credits from some of Cali’s finest and spot features from Odd Future’s Mike G and the previously featured Tay Walker on ‘North Hollywood‘, she is fast becoming a fav of ours. Suggest you relax and bump this 10-tracker now.
