Gary Clark Jr. Releases Free ‘Blak and Blu’ Stream on iTunes

 

Gary Clark Jr. will be releasing his debut album, Blak and Blu, next week! Anticipation has been high on this dude for a minute, now, but the suspense is now over with an exclusive iTunes stream of the entire album. Still not quite the same as listening to the tracked out version but definitely a way to get your hands on all the goods before the official release date. We must say, Gary is an impressively diverse young fella. Will be interesting to see what direction he ultimately takes with his music. Click the link below to listen!

Tyson – “Out of My Mind”

Tyson – Out Of My Mind by PurplePR

Tyson, an unidentified, masked producer from the UK brought more hipstery 80s flashbacks early this year, with a single called “Die On The Dancefloor,” and now “Out Of My Mind.” Both are available on iTunes now and coming soon to vinyl.

Tyson’s comments on his music: “People forgot how to be stars… I’m trying to bring back authentic analogue music that sounds real. I wanted to make something horrible and very, very nasty, so when people heard it they would say ‘urgh’ but in a good way…”
