Happy new year everyone! Here’s a first treat of 2011: a sample mix of AM444‘s debut EP – my long awaited collab with Chinese singer, songwriter, producer, mc and allround cool girl ChaCha (Uprooted Sunshine, UK heavyweight Kode 9, Jamaican legend Clive Chin, and many others).
AM444’s music may be a little hard to describe, but we hope easy to like. Judge for yourselves:
Hardcore hip-hop fans and dedicated blog hunters already know, but for all you other earth dwellers, here’s 2 new interesting tracks by Jay Electronica to celebrate his signing to Jay-Z’s ROC Nation record label.
Btw, also re-discovering his two biggest tracks so far, Exhibit A and Exhibit C, both produced by Just Blaze. DAMN, this man can rhyme. So effortless and intricate at the same time. Don’t even know where to begin quoting him. And that voice. Put-on-repeat kind of music, proving intelligent real hip-hop is still alive in 2010.. Looking forward to that full album.
Maybe it’s the upcoming 4th anniversary of J Dilla‘s untimely passing (10 Feb – R.I.P. – we miss you) or the fact that it was his b-day yesterday, but I’m a in a beat mood. Kicks, snares, samples and basslines.
So here’s another 2 free downloads 4 your aural pleasure.. Instrumental funk flavored hip-hop.
