Jump around! This blazing new track by DJ Nu-Mark features producer extraordinaire Quantic and goes by the name of “Tropicalifornia.” The vibe is sorta self explanatory – the hum of an accordion mixed in with some scratching make for a welcome medley of sounds. The video, similarly, is full of life and shows the two artists playing their hearts out on a slew of instruments. Too much fun – can we have summer back?

The track is taken from Nu-Mark’s upcoming album, Broken Sunlight.

New Track: Zodiac – “Come” ft. Jesse Boykins III

 

For those unaware, The Weeknd used to be a duo, including a producer named Jeremy Rose (aka Zodiac). After being unceremoniously removed from the group, he’s carried on with solo work and has recently released a project called the Zodiac EP. Below is “Come” from that project featuring the dreamy crooner Jesse Boykins III. The work is the product of a $300 laptop. True indeed that artistry need not rely on fancy tools, but simply talent!

New Track: Robert Glasper – “Consequences Of Jealousy” ft. Meshell Ndegeocello (Sassy Geemix by Georgia Anne Muldrow)

 

Pure ecstasy is this new Georgia Anne Muldrow remix of Robert Glasper’s “Consequences of Jealousy” featuring Meshell Ndegeocello. Is this even fair? Or right? Loving the squiggly sway of the new beat and the enchanting sprinkles of Muldrow vocals to compliment the already mesmerizing hum of Meshell’s voice. Feels like we’re being transported to the middle of a sacred dance on another planet.

Below, also stream Pete Rock’s mellowed out remix of the title track, “Black Radio” as well as a breezy hip hop spin on “Afro Blue” with Erykah Badu compliments of 9th Wonder and special guest appearance from Phonte.
