Always heavy and emotional, Jez Dior‘s latest offering continues to blend the sounds of grungy rock and hip-hop into something novel. The new cut, “Who Drank My Whiskey?”, is a slight sonic departure from what you may expect out of Jezzy, but it’s true to his form nonetheless.
Check out the stark black and white visuals below, featuring Jez Dior getting head while snacking and also a water (whiskey) boarding scene. You crazy for this one J!
A lot of people hate on Mumford for sounding the same in every single song. And, yeah, they kind of do…but I’ll be damned if I don’t like it.
They’re back again after the latest *Grammy winning* album, Babel, releasing the new single with a video accompaniment. The video is cool, but I still can’t figure out what the four different screens have to do with one another. Maybe it’s just midnight and I’ve been studying for 5 hours, but hey, I just don’t see it.
The song itself is a solid effort, though. None of Mumford & Son’s singles really do it for me to the extent that some of the smaller cuts on the albums do, but, as the industry goes, the single is just the song with most mass appeal, which this track certainly has in droves.
Be on the look out for more from the Sons, and let me know if you figure out the message behind the video in the comments below.
You hold your truth so purely // And swerve not through the minds of men
French Montana (and hopefully his bear hat, too) just dropped the lead single to his debut album Pardon My French. The star-studded track is definitely a contender for summer anthem as of right now, and I’ve found out that I can stand Lil Wayne as long as he keeps on his ign’ant grind.
Will update once the CDQ/tagless version drops, S/O to Illroots for the find.
UPDATE: No tags, waddup
It’s been a while since we’ve heard just about anything from Mr. Posner (he dropped a pretty good mixtape, The Layover, back in the fall) but he seems like he’s back en force with this Diplo and Benny Blanco-produced smash. This version is the remix used in his recent Reebok commercial, but rumor has it that the full single will drop sometime this month, featuring a verse from GOOD’s Big Sean, who seems to be taking over right now. S/O to my boy A over at FreshNewTracks for the find.
Greg Kantor, better known by his stage name 5 & A Dime, is back again with a new dubstep mashup. Sampling Levels by Avicii, Bromance by Tim Berg, Super Bass by Nicki Minaj, Unleash The F*cking Dada by Dada Life, In The Dark by Dev, Sexy and I Know It by LMFAO, Raw 2 Da Floor (Lazy Rich Remix) by Calvertron/Qualver, and Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites (Zedd Remix) by Skrillex, 5 & A Dime has a really unique talent to take different aspects of dubstep songs to create one massive track with some seriously dope womps.
My favorite part of the song is the last minute, when Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites drops. The track just goes nuts, slaying face and taking names with a crazy drop into some really heavy wobbles.
5 & A Dime seems to be getting better and better with each release, so keep on the look out for him in the future.
Be sure to give the track a “heart” when it hits Hype Machine!

The Toronto crooner leaked the first single off his upcoming sophomore album, Take Care, late last night via his website. It’s a smooth flurry of synths, strings and snares coupled with Drizzy’s classic back-and-forth rap/sing cadence. He recently told Rolling Stone, “I hate singles. With this album, I want to tell a whole story. I don’t want people to just hear a piece and judge the album on that.” I’ll be looking forward to more, Aubrey. @dcbui
Justin Vernon is one of my favorite singers ever, and Bon Iver is one of my favorite groups ever, and For Emma, Forever Ago is one of my favorite albums ever…so you know I have massive expectations for the release of Bon Iver’s next project, simply titled Bon Iver.
This one felt a little strange at first with the high, organ sound–it took me about 10 seconds to fall in love with the song though.
For Emma, Forever Ago got me through a lot of really difficult times, and I owe a lot to Bon Iver for having created that album. I can only hope that this album will do similar things for me.
After this single, my expectations are high, and I am confident that Mr. Vernon and the Bon Iver crew will pull through.
Bon Iver drops June 21st

“Revofev” – Kid Cudi
BRAND NEW SINGLE FROM KID CUDI! I posted a video of him performing this the other day. Let me just put it this way – Kid Cudi is my favorite artist, potentially of all time, and he doesn’t let me down with this one. A large part of that is the production from Plain Pat. Great beat! I can’t write more right now because I have to go to work…but I could go on and on about how much I already love this song. OH, and the name…yeah, so I thought it was called “Revolution,” but apparently it’s called “Revofev,” which is short for Revolution of Evolution. Album, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr Rager drops September 14th. Yall already know I’m counting down the minutes.
