New Release: Mark de Clive-Lowe – ‘Get Started Remix EP’

Known by many as a DJ and show host for Los Angeles’ highly respected KCRW, Anthony Valadez is preparing to now show us a slightly different side. June 5th will see the release of Anthony’s debut full length album as a producer, Just Visiting. Expect to find appearances from Miles Bonny, The Park, Rebekah Raff, Anna Wise (Sonnymoon), Def Sound, Damon Aaron and others.

New Track: Full Crate – “Without My Heart” ft. David Simmons + MP3

 

Dutch producer Full Crate is one super talented dude. This new track is no doubt going to amass some believers. “Without My Heart” keeps a beautifully understated jazzy R&B groove reminiscent of Incognito (remember him?), and is set off by David Simmon’s blissfully smooth vocal delivery. And that breakdown towards the end? Excuse us. Great.

Video: Afta-1 – “HeyeLAND” ft. Nikko Gray

 

So, uh – guys. We’ve been super duper holding out on y’all. There’s this secret invite only party we’ve been going to for a few months in Jersey (yeah, Jersey) that is all kinds of amazing. Basically, a talented photographer/videographer by the name of Tone (that many New York heads may be familiar with) started a live music series at his loft featuring upcoming talent called Live At The Loft.

For those unable to snag an invite, we’re going to start sharing some of our favorite videos with you. You’ll definitely want to check out the Live At The Loft site for previous performances, which include Chico Mann, Muhsinah, Jesse Boykins III, Full Crate and Mar, Cubic Zirconia, Melo X, and Fresh Daily. Yep. Thank us later.

Without further ado, here’s one of our favorite recent performances featuring Los Angeles’ Afta-1. The gorgeous video perfectly captured the mellow mood and just dropped last night! This is taking us back and making us relive the sexiness in a whole new way. Very much awesome.
