Galimatias Dahlia Petals
03.11.14

Still one of the most mesmerizing producers in the game has to be Galimatias, who has been working alongside Alina Baraz from Cleveland for quite some time now. Given they have a special connection when it comes to music, we are curious about their future ventures.

The following track from the Danish producer is called “Dahlia Petals” and is about a year old. Galimatias never released it officially, since he was afraid he would get in trouble for sampling vocals from Boyz II Men. It’s pure ambient bliss with a garage type of feel to it and you can download it for free right now, right here!

Singularis Soulection White Label 012
02.11.14

Yung player Frank de Bruin aka Singularis from Gorinchem has been on my radar for a while and when he told he was approached by Soulection to do a white label release, I was very excited for him.

Now I thought it would come out early 2015, but to my surprise it dropped this weekend. And this “Soulection White Label 012” ladies and gentlemen is another fine release, we Dutchies can be proud of. Guess I can let the cat out of the bag now. In 2015 we will be doing a monthly Dutch producer series in which we shine the light on ultra talented, underrated and up-and-coming local producers. Y0ung Singularis is one of the first in this series, so get ready to get to know him and a gang of others a bit better next year.

In the meanwhile get crunk to this free downloadable EP and DJ’s sure to play out “Head Up” in the club.

B. Bravo Soprano
02.11.14

If you didn’t know any better, one would almost think it’s B. Bravo week here. What a bunch of flavorful tracks have been flowing our way. We love it!

His brand new freebie “Soprano has nothing to do with mobsters or gangsters though. This one is for his pops who got Adam into music way back when. I’m proud to say I met pops (and the rest of the fam) back in 2010 and what a nice guy he is. He wanted to show off some martial arts skills and I’m sure he would’ve thrown me to the floor if I would’ve let him.

Not many of you know that B. Bravo also plays a little saxophone, but in combination with the DX7 and those 808′s it sounds so jazzy and laid back. Get ya sexy on to this one fellas and snatch a free download right here.

31.10.14

Very very very happy to hear so many Funk bangers coming out of camp Salva this week. His collaboration “I Could Be” with B. Bravo and Rojai was straight crackin’, but man it just keeps getting better and better!

His “Peacemaker” mixtape released earlier this week and features Young Thug, Schoolboy Q, ASAP Ferg, Kurupt, E-40, Freddie Gibbs and more big names. It’s available for free download as of now, so grab that asap. First track on there is another slap of Funk in your face. Salva is “Freaking U” together with Starship Connection (B. Bravo & Teeko) and it’s so damn sexy. Good to hear so much California G-Funk from my mens.

Follow Salva on Soundcloud in case you weren’t doing so yet.

R&B / Soul / Video

Now we’ve all heard of auto-tune rapper T-Pain, but who knew he was such a skilled singer. Makes you wonder why he doesn’t throw out the gimmick right this instant.

Given that it has brought him to where he is at the moment. Lets be honest though…al this guy needs is a Fender rhodes and a microphone. T-Pain’s Tiny Desk concert on NPR is nothing short from amazing I tell you! They asked him if he would be kind enough to grace the Tiny Desk without any embellishment or effects to show what’s really made his career: his voice. He performs three songs that sound so different, yet beautiful to us.

Set list:
“Buy U A Drank (Shawty Snappin’)”
“Up Down (Do This All Day)”
“Drankin’ Patna”

Mozaic I-95
29.10.14

Donnie Mozaic from Grand Rapids Michigan has been producing for a minute, but with the track “Late Night” he really caught our attention.

He has collaborated with J Rawls, Young RJ (Slum Village), Rapper Big Pooh and produces for The Action Figures. Mozaic drops his “I-95” album on the world which dives into his journey of 2014. From heartbreak, to finding new love, to failures and accomplishments. He combined those experiences and created a soundtrack real people relate to.

As a part of the AGO family, we see a bright future ahead and for just $1 you can purchase nineteen beats.

JTRP You And Me EP Glenn Astro Remix Beef
28.10.14

JTRP consists of two guys, Jorge Takei & Phillip ‘Robophil’ Morris, from Cologne Germany who have been making music as a duo for a while now.

They started out making a few bass heavy releases on T. William’s Deep Teknologi imprint. Followed by several sidekicks in Belgium, UK and finally landing closer to home on Beef from Prague. JTRP’s debut 4-track EP entitled ‘You And Me‘ on Beef is mix between techno and acid house. But when you have Glenn Astro on the remix…man it just adds a so much additional flavor! Anything this producer from Tartelet/Box aus Holz touches turns to liquid crack.

Shout out to Michal from Beef for letting us premiere Glenn Astro’s remix of “You And Me”. You need to get the 12-inch vinyl that will be available November 10th.

Salva Freaking U Starship Connection B. Bravo Teeko Peacemaker
27.10.14

The homie Paulie Salva from San Francisco, moved to Los Angeles a few years ago and he has blown out of proportion ever since.

Salva is about to release “Peacemaker”, a 13-track mixtape that features big names like Young Thug, A$AP Ferg, Schoolboy Q, Freddie Gibbs, Problem and more. Instead of electronic music, like we heard on his debut “Complex Housing” album, the focus at the moment is on Hip Hop music. For his new track “I Could Be” Salva called in the help out Bay brothers B. Bravo and Rojai. Both are my dudes and I’m so happy they can share Paul’s succes. Jairo’s raspy voice sounds superb on this cut and sexes it right up! Adam’s funk-influences make this a perfect late night lounge and Rome Fortune is on point with the rhymes.

Looking forward to more of this California sexy oh and thanks to Mixmag for premiering this one!
