24-08-2011 // : Jalin Roze - More Flows

2011's best new rapper in my book is still Jalin Roze. Despite his April-release "The Brilliance" and life being busy for him, he found some time to share a little something called More Flows. The track is based on Common's track Be, but with fresh lyrics from Mr. Roze. With a track like this it's hard to go wrong and Jalin Roze once again shows his skills. Nice track to keep us up to date ánd you can download it for free here.

24-08-2011 // EP: Elenne May - Lilies and Blue Veined Hands EP

When an impressive and annoying virus took over my laptop these past days, it was hard to stay relaxed from time to time. There was good things and bad things about having a laptop that does absolutely nothing though. I did some reading, cleaned out the kitchen and spent some time listen to the last thing i was discovering when my friend Pavilion took faith in her own hands. And i had quickly decided that Dutch singer-songwriter Elenne May is the best Dutch record i've heard this year. Her beautiful voice is soothing, the songs perfectly crafted and altough it's only a 5-track EP there are no two songs the same. I can not get enough of these tracks and they helped me through my laptop-crisis and continue to do so as it's only back to 50% of it's useage for now.

I don't really care though, i've found myself (and you) one of the best EPs of the year. My favourite EP of 2011 (Ruby Randall) has met her biggest 'opponent' to date.

22-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Man Man - Life Fantastic

Life Fantastic is a nice Monday Morning Kick-Off because it's sweet and melodieus, but also explodes near the ending. It gives you the opportunity to wake up feelin relaxed, but not too relaxed. Because it's a Monday and we all have to get back to the daily routines today. Have a good week!

21-08-2011 // : Teen Daze - Surface

I've been listening to Surface by Teen Daze for some time now and it was on my 'to blog'-list. Today i finally managed to do so, and it has a lot to do with this amazing Daytrotter-session that sparked a new interest for this one track. I'm enjoying this one track a lot since i 1st heard it, but have to admit that the naked songs as they are played for Daytrotter are much more enjoyable. The lyrics are personal and more understandable when they can be heard well, also his voice really works great with just an electric guitar. If i was his friend i might consider suggesting him to make an entire record like this. Maybe he'll enjoy it (i'm pretty sure i will). It may sound like i don't like the track, i do. I just like the Daytrotter-session more.

19-08-2011 // : Inc. - Swear

At 1st i was like "hmmmzz..." But then i was like "Hmmm..." and now i'm like "HMMM". Great Track!

18-08-2011 // : Digits - Pale Green Morning

This Pale Green Morning is a slow and mesmerizing track taken from Digits "Lost Dream EP" which is a 5-track little masterpiece. Released in April, i've just discovered it this weekend, but have been playing it every night of the week several times in a row. This track is my favourite, but i don't really listen to just one track, the whole 22-minutes EP is played over and over again this morning while reading the paper and drinking some coffee. Check out his website for the entire album, which you can download for free, an absolute bargain & worth the listen.

17-08-2011 // : I Break Horses - Winter Beats

A Swedish duo by the name of I Break Horses is releasing their debut album "Heart" next week and their 2nd single Winter Beats is a great track with a stylish black-and-white videoclip. It's hypnotising synths, dreamy vocals and breaking beats that make me long for the winter. Because i'm certain (although it may also be of the video, even though there's hardly any winter in it) this will sound even better when snow has covered the world with it's beautiful white blanket. Even in Summer a great track though. Hope they can ship the album from Sweden to Holland, would be ace!

17-08-2011 // : CANT - Believe

CANT is Chris Taylor's solo-project. Chris Taylor may or may not be known as part of Grizzly Bear and he is releasing is debut solo-album the end of September. Is this something to look forward to? Based on the only track i've heard so far: YES! Believe is a slow and smooth track that is simply irresistible, it has an 80s-feel, but in a good way. In a J Viewz-way, if i had to make any comparison. But f*ck comparing, this is just a fantastic track.

16-08-2011 // : Nerves Junior - Kale

This is such a great track and gets better everytime i hear it. Nerves Junior has made a dark, synthy obscure track that intrigues from the very 1st second and mesmerizes more and more as the song evolves untill it eventually explodes near the ending. It is one of the best twists in a song i've heard all year and this track is among the best in months. I've been listening to it for over 3 hours now and still can't get enough. Phenomenal!

15-08-2011 // : No Surrender ft. Tunde Adebimpe - Silver Hall

This is already a few months old, but i still play it and never shared it. Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio) teams up with No Surrender, a Brooklyn based collective that makes music easily compared with TV On The Radio. Which makes this collaboration pretty logical, but No Surrender has more to it than just this track, visit their website to hear the entire album on which the TVOTR-influence is still within range, but No Surrender also gets more of a profile for themselves. I'm still exploring the album, but i might even consider listening to it more than TVOTR's Nine Types Of Light..

15-08-2011 // Monday Morning Kick-Off: [MM-KO] Clock Opera - Lesson No. 7

Another Monday, Another Kick-Off. This brand new track by Clock Opera is set to be released October 3rd, but can already be enjoyed via their soundcloud. It starts off nice and easy, but builts up the pace as it goes along. A perfect Monday morning song, as this is basically how Mondays work, we start off eeeeeaaaaaazzzzyyyy and slowly get back into the rhythm of the week. Have a good one!

14-08-2011 // EP: Kuhlamity - Indulgence

Nice hiphop-mixtape from unknown rapper Kuhlamity. This 9-track mixtape is a great exhibition of his skills, which are undoubtfully there. He's working on an album, with hopefully a little more consistency, but as this is a mixtape it makes sense that it's going in all directions. Most of the tracks are really good with Legacy (which you can hear above) and My Relation as absolute highlights. Click the pic to download the entire mixtape for free & show Kuhlamity some love through Facebook, he deserves it!
