Exclusive Release: ‘Sonic Boom Vol. 3′ (Compiled by Maiya Norton)

 

Super excited about this new Sonic Boom Vol. 3 that our lady Maiya Norton has masterfully compiled for us this month. It includes some of our favorite jams from the last couple months, including a nice dose of music unlikely on folks’ radars.

The buzz building Denitia and Sene are featured, the venerable Shafiq Husayn shares some love, Wondaland’s newest artist Roman Gianarthur contributes his latest single, and MED’s much loved “Burgundy Whip” with Blu and Jimetta Rose is yet another treat on this free release.

Then we’ve got artists like Ikaz doing a ridiculous flip of Frank Ocean’s “Pyramids,” Philly producer Aeon going in on the sultry Sade sampled “GoodbyeLove,” and LIPS gives a totally huggable performance covering Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids.”

Seravince, Stacy Epps, and Moonchild round out the offering with their sexy mood music, and Josiah Wise closes out Sonic Boom a la the echoey and layered modern chorus in “Gifts for Shitenno.”

New Remix: Frank Ocean – “Pink Matter” ft. Outkast

 

One of our favorite Frank Ocean tracks from Channel Orange gets the Outkast remix treatment. In addition to Andre 3000′s oft quoted verse on “Pink Matter,” Big Boi adds his own saucy contribution also on some tantalizing fast-rap steez. Hit play below and get caught up.

New Track: Frank Ocean – “Wiseman”

 

Frank Ocean yesterday dropped a new tune on his Tumblr called “Wiseman.” According to The Fader, the song was originally intended for the upcoming Quentin Tarantino flick titled Django Unchained. The song unfortunately didn’t seem to find a naturally fitting place in the film, however, and went unused on the soundtrack.

Doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy it, though! Dig the sparse production with the lone guitar vibrato, too – actually adds intensity to the emotion.

Stream “Wiseman” on Frank’s Tumblr.
