Hope you all enjoy this song of the day to start off your weekend! Today we’ve got “Run”, by up-and-coming rap group The Knux, and the track also features Kid CuDi in a rare guest feature. Got to love it!
Today’s song of the day comes to you from indie rock band TV on the Radio, and was one of the greatest songs of 2004. Enjoy, and don’t forget - we’re on air this Thursday at 9PM!
Today’s track of the day is a somewhat old (but timeless nonetheless) remix of one of Santigold’s hit songs, “You’ll Find A Way”. In this dance remix, Kid CuDi tacks on an additional guest verse that gives the song an added level of intensity and depth. Further adding to the track’s intrigue is the fact that CuDi’s verse was recorded far before his explosion into the mainstream consciousness, making this song a veritable time capsule into the primordial beginnings of the career of the man commonly known as Scott Mescudi. Santigold herself isn’t too shabby either - her urgent, racing vocals perfectly complement the dark and frenetic beat. This, combined with CuDi’s guest spot, creates a recipe for success. Enjoy!
Today’s song of the day comes to you straight from indie pop artist Dev’s as of yet untitled debut album. “Bass Down Low” features frequent collaborators The Cataracs - the duo is probably best known for linking up on one of the biggest dance anthems of 2010 in their smash hit “Like A G6”. The chemistry between these two artists is near-perfect, and every collaboration of theirs results in a sonically superior successor - and this song is no exception. The track features a booming bassline, as you might expect, with some powerful synths backing it. Expect this one to be all over the radio whenever it sees an official release - Dev and company are poised to make some big moves in 2011. Until then…enjoy!
Today’s track comes to you courtesy of one of the hottest indie acts of 2010, Deerhunter. They had one of the most outstanding tracks of 2010 in “Helicopter”, and now, world-class DJs Diplo and Lunice take it to the next level with their take on the track. Expect the usual Diplo signatures on the track, as well as the essential elements that made the original so great (and is that a Ministry of Sound sample I hear?). Regardless, enjoy this track as Christmas is fast approaching! We’re looking for Deerhunter to be making some big moves in 2010, and if this track is any indication, they will.
Robyn’s year-long anticipated Body Talk has finally dropped this week to the content of fans and music enthusiasts everywhere. It seems a remix album wouldn’t be so far off, her brand of electro-pop fused hip hop all ready summoning DJ’s the likes of Diplo, Fred Falke, Real Talk, Starsmith and others. Montreal DJ A-Trak, who runs Fool’s Gold Records (roster includes Kid Sister, Chromeo, the Cool Kids), has joined the ranks, reinterpreting the Swedish sensation’s “Indestructible. ” Like he’s done for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, A-Trak transforms “Indestructible” into a rowdy club banger, a delirious, fast-paced electronic exploration that heightens the original’s use of violins and disco-funk. The dance solo towards the end merges classical sounding harmonies with a boisterous electro spin. Enjoy!
Being humble becomes more and more difficult once dreams begin to become realities.
As 2011 creeps upon the horizon, the young man from “The Steel City,” who essentially built his buzz from nothing, is only going to evolve into a bigger and bigger player in Hip-Hop. This equates to more money, more tours and more opportunities. Coincidentally, it also means distancing himself further and further away from the life he once lived. And, regardless of what some may say, coming up is never a bad thing. As long being humble remains apart of the repertoire.
Who knows where this new track “Know Your Name” resonates from. It could be old, it could be something from a recent recording session. Either way, the records shows a Wiz who is still in awe of the success, yet appreciative at the same time.
Also, thanks to all of you that tuned in to listen to our latest broadcast last night! We should have a show recap and audio stream up in a few hours for you to check out if you missed it. Thanks to all our loyal listeners (and new ones too), we really appreciate you!
“The Show Goes On” is a first look at Lupe Fiasco’s upcoming Lasers album due out on March 8th. Just earlier today, the song was premiered during his live Ustream feed which then later landed up on his official website. The song certainly proves to be one of his more emotive records with a postive message being conveyed and some outstanding production by Kane Beatz. You can stream the song entirely below, while the song is available now at www.lupefiasco.com. Enjoy!
