Adrian Lux – Teenage Crime [Official Video]

December 20, 2010

The newly released “Teenage Crime” from Swedish Adrian Lux, makes me wanna chill at the beach all day long then hit the clubs all night. Signed to Axtone, founded by Axwell, Adrian Lux is in good hands, as the label has released tracks by well known acts Steve Angello, Laidback Luke, and Dirty South among others.

Check out the video below, and grab your tracks over at iTunes.

Nicki Minaj – Blazin’ (Feat. Kanye West)

December 20, 2010

This track is sick and deserves to have the sound pumped up whenever it’s played. Good to see at least a few hits on this album of the ilk of her feature on Kanye West’s “Monster”.

Download “Blazin'” over at Earmilk, and you can grab the album Pink Friday, here.

Bag Raiders – So Demanding

December 20, 2010

Off the back of their international hit “Shooting Stars”, the Aussie electro group Bag Raiders present an interesting, if not slightly underwhelming self-titled album. Then again, this may be a skewed view due to the huge success of “Shooting Stars”. None of the tracks seem to have that instant catch, but their suitability for the background as the sun sets before a night out, earn the album multiple listens straight through. Eventually, a few standouts emerge, such as “Sunlight”, “Golden Wings”, “Castles in the Air” and of course “So Demanding”. “So Demanding” sounds eerily similar to productions that Chromeo have put out, and to have that sort of likeness bodes well for this band on the cusp of even greater success.

Stream and download “So Demanding” below, and you can grab their album here.

B.o.B. – Beast Mode [Video]

November 20, 2010

B.o.B. is dropping a mixtape on December 7th titled No Genre. There’s really not a whole lot of information about it, just a big countdown timer on the official site. He goes all out on this track, and if you can believe it, this guy’s gonna be even bigger than he is right now. Check it out:

Lupe Fiasco ft. John Legend – Never Forget You

November 20, 2010

“Never Forget You,” shows pretty clearly Lupe’s new pop direction, tempered well with the soulful John Legend’s vocals. Sort of a more downplayed version of label-mate B.o.B. but assuredly catchy given Lupe’s track record of hits, it makes me hope for more releases very soon from 2011’s Lasers.

You can grab the track here and check up on some other posts from this hip-hop superstar here and here.

Flight Facilities – Crave You [Official Video]

November 17, 2010

I love the cheekiness of these guys. They claim they’re from Trinidad and Tobago, and all promo material cleverly hides who these guys actually are. But this Sydney group has got something right – by shying away from the social media sides of things it has had the opposite effect – driving demand for their music. It certainly doesn’t hurt to have tracks like this. The sound is so pure and the lyrics simple, but its a good sign for the music – it doesn’t have to be overly complex to sound great.
