I don’t recall Kaytranada having an official video for any of his work before. “Holy Hole Inna Donut” is from the producer’s outstanding Kaytra Todo EP.
Lauryn Hill‘s return seems to be fully underway. Hear her new track, “Neurotic Society” (that she may or may not have wanted to release yet): “Hello All: Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!” – MLH
Talib Kweli‘s Prisoner of Conscious coming May 7.
Earlier this morning, we heard the new track from The Great Gatsby soundtrack executive producer, Jay-Z. Now, the full project is available for stream over at NPR (again). Hear new music from The xx (my jam), Jack White, Quadron’s Coco O., Beyonce & Andre 3000 and more.
Having had the pleasure of meeting 4/5 of the artists in this video (at the same show, no less), I can confidently say that the strangeness of this “Green Eyes” clip is not unexpected at all.
New video for Janelle Monae’s “Q.U.E.E.N.”, with Erykah Badu, and it’s just as interesting as you would expect from this pairing.
Sentence no one ever thought they would have to type: Jay-Z’s contribution to The Great Gatsby soundtrack (of which, he is the Exec. Producer) premiered on NPR. Brave new world.
Clams Casino will forever be one of the greatest artist names of all time. On a day that’s seen a few unexpected pairings, the NJ producer’s got DOOM for his latest, “Bookfiend”. No word yet on the track being attached to any project.
Just let it happen. Harry Fraud‘s High Tide EP coming May 7.
The ever-secretive outfit, The Black Opera enlists Mayer Hawthorne for their latest, “Queen of Hearts”: “While in search of his Queen of Hearts, or some would say, KUEENZ of Heart, the King was not very trusting with any of his beautiful possibilities. Once he learned how to trust himself, then and only then, was he able to trust and L O V E Without A Limit.” – The Black Opera
