Homebase Presents Live at the Clubhouse: Coco (of Quadron) “Sleep” + MP3


HOMEBASE presents: CoCo O. “Sleep” w/ theClubhouse
from theClubhouse on Vimeo.

We post a lot of Quadron on the blog, only because everything they do is fantastic. Their constant brilliance is partially due to vocalist Coco, who is featured in a new digi-release for free download: Homebase presents Live at the Clubhouse. Coco re-made / covered / interpolated / sampled the 1976 Deniece Williams song, “Free.” The result is her new track “Sleep,” the characteristically sweet breathy voice backed by a full band.

Rye Rye bangs out a new mixtape, RYEot powRR, for free download. This mix is true Rye Rye style, in that it’s basically a massive shot of adrenaline. And though no one can dance like Rye Rye, this mix will have everyone dancing with crazy energy. Check out another great example of Rye Rye’s ridiculous dance skills in the above video, Rye Rye’s version of “Party in the USA” – but this is not for the Miley Cyrus fans. Unless they’re on speed.

Rye Rye’s full-length album Go! Pop! Bang! is coming out this Spring.

Saadi & Bajah (Dry Eye Crew): “Lights Up NYC” + MP3

Saadi & Bajah (of the Dry Eye Crew) released this single “Lights Up NYC” for download, along with a live performance video. Inspired by Pupa Bajah’s story of coming to New York with the Dry Eye Crew from Sierra Leone, the song relates to so many artists and their struggle to simply live and create in the bustling city. Bajah and Saadi met at an Antibalas show in Brooklyn, immediately went back to Saadi’s studio in the East Village and this track “Lights Up NYC” was born.
