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 track of the day comes to you from the French electronica trio Telepopmusik. “Last Train To Wherever” features ethereal vocals overlaid onto a haunting sonic backdrop. With bubbling synths and intriguing auditory nuances throughout, this is one of those tracks that is heard once and put on repeat for the rest of the day (I should know; it happened to me this past weekend). The group is rumored to be releasing a new album sometime this year, but until then, this offering from their album Angel Milk (which came out all the way back in 2005) will have to do. Enjoy!
In light of the recent New Year’s festivities, I felt compelled to post one of my favorite tracks that I’ve been listening to lately. This is one of that songs that has a sort of “feel” to it…in this case, it feels like winter…if that makes any sort of sense at all. Anyways, I highly recommend you give this song (titled “City Lights”) a listen. I can almost guarantee that for better or for worse, this song is poised to become the next “Airplanes” pop / hip-hop crossover hit; I’m pretty sure just one listen will convince you of that. Not to mention, Nikki & Rich bring Fabolous onboard for a scene-stealing guest verse that is truly inspirational. Not a bad way to start off this year, in my opinion. Enjoy!
Today’s track of the day comes to you from Keri Hilson’s recently-released “No Boys Allowed” album. Possibly the best track on the album, “Buyou” features New York native J. Cole spitting perhaps one of the greatest feature verses of his career. As an ode to people everywhere who can carry their own weight financially, the track will appeal to a wide audience - perhaps even an international one, as many speculate that this will be the next radio single off Miss Keri’s album. 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.
Today’s track comes to you straight off of Nicki Minaj’s recently-released album, Pink Friday, which came out in stores earlier this week. This song, titled “Moment 4 Life”, is one of the album’s standout tracks and features an outstanding guest verse from Drake, as well as an airy chorus from Nicki herself. Initial reviews for the album have been overall positive across the board, with critics praising her originality and impressive wordplay (particularly for a female artist). Enjoy, and Happy [Early] Thanksgiving!
It looks like 8 months in a federal prison hasn’t changed Lil Wayne much. Eleven days after being released from Riker’s Island Correctional Facility, Dwayne Carter (formerly know as Inmate #02616544L) has laid down and recorded his first post-prison verses in the form of a remix to Birdman’s latest single, “Fire Flame”. Wayne sounds more focused and lucid than ever, dropping those signature metaphors and unforgettable lines all over this track. Factor in a thinly-veiled reference to the upcoming Tha Carter IV, and we’ve got a potential hit on our hands that not only heralds Wayne’s re-entrance into the music industry, but also heightens anticipation for the already long-awaited album. Happy Wednesday everyone, and enjoy!
