FREE MUSIC MONDAY: MIXTAPE #15 – LLOYD THE PLAYBOY DIARIES VOL. 1

Lloyd

This week’s mixtape comes from Lloyd, the long haired lothario from Atlanta who brought us the brilliant ‘Dedication to My Ex’ track this time last year. His latest release lacks songs as funky and chart worthy as Dedication, instead we are given a rehash of Kendrick Lamars’ Swimming Pools and he samples the likes of Aaliyah’s Four Page Letter and Mac Miller’s The Question, and samples … [Read more...]

FREE MUSIC MONDAY: MIXTAPE #14 – RESPIRE END OF SUMMER

RESPIRE END OF SUMMER

One of Atlanta’s finest disco-house DJs, Respire has thrown together this “End of Summer” mix, which is an hour of nu-disco jams to signify the end of the summer. It will bring back the memories of lounging at your inflatable pool from Aldi with your margarita, the smell of a barbeque in the distance and your nicely sunburnt forehead; or whatever summer means to you. This mix brings … [Read more...]

MIXTAPE MONDAY: MIXTAPE #13 – BAISHE KINGS THE LEGEND OF BO ZEUS

Baishe Kings Bo Zeus

London-based hip-hop collective, Baishe Kings have released some pretty dope mixtapes this year and have stayed somewhat under the radar; but it’s time for them to blow up. Their quirky London-laced bars bounce through their tracks with mesmerising and often comedic ease. Their music seems to come from a background of smoking, playing video games and watching anime, which is a welcomed break … [Read more...]

Treasure Fingers

Treasure Fingers - Hennessey & Sunshine   This week I’m ditching the hip hop and rap, getting rid of those gangstas hoes, and instead I’m bringing you a brand new bunch of oldies, remixed and piled up in a funk-filled bundle by none other than Atlanta born, Nu-Disco specialist, Treasure Fingers. This mix has some absolute classics mixed together with the signature Treasure … [Read more...]

Chevy Woods Gang Land

Chevy Woods - Gang Land Originally making his mark with appearances on Wiz Khalifa’s early mixtapes, fellow Pittsburg native Chevy Woods, previously known as Kev Tha Hustla, dropped his second mixtape under his recently acquired name. Having been part of the Taylor Gang fronted by Khalifa, 29-year-old Chevy feels that now it’s his time to shine, and he has done so by dropping one of … [Read more...]

MIXTAPE MONDAY: 50 CENT

50 Cent the lost tape

Mixtape #10 - The Lost Tape Mixtape number ten sees Mr Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, ditch his softer side and come back spitting fire. Whilst The Lost Tape features some more laid back tracks, it is also laced with the aggression and passion 50 rapped with when he first burst on to the scene. Having pretty much gone full circle in the music world, with mixtapes, classic albums, creating … [Read more...]

Muztek

Mixtape #9 – Muztek Sunset Love 2 I won't drag this week’s mixtape out as the music speaks for itself. There is little to be found on the internet about this week’s artist, apart from the fact that his name is Marius Mugenis and he's an 18-year-old kid from Lithuania who goes by the alias of Muztek. His latest mix is the perfect blend of down-tempo house fun, with some Biggie, Mary J … [Read more...]

FREE MUSIC MONDAY – MIXTAPE #8

Kevin-Cossom-040512

Kevin Cossom - Hook vs Bridge II You may not have heard of Kevin Cossom, but you have definitely heard at least one of the countless hit songs he has written. The Florida native has penned and produced tracks for Keri Hilson, Mary J Blige, Ace Hood, Chris Brown and Joe Jonas. Although his work with these artists is top notch, Cossom really shines when he releases solo material. While he is yet … [Read more...]

FREE MUSIC MONDAY – MIXTAPE 7

Ace Hood Starvation

Ace Hood - Starvation Antoine McColister is a rather tame name for a rapper, so it’s completely understandable that young Antoine decided to change his stage name to Ace Hood. The Florida native signed to DJ Khaled’s label, We The Best Music Group after a chance meeting with Khaled outside a Florida radio station in 2007. Ace took the opportunity to give Khaled an autobiography and a … [Read more...]

FREE MUSIC TUESDAY – MIXTAPE #6

Macadelic

Mac Miller - Macadellic So last week I brought you some new Wiz Khalifa, but mentioned that he would need to do a lot to take Mac Miller’s crown as my favourite Pittsburgh rapper. Did he succeed? Well, no, but Wiz’s release is one of the best this side of Christmas. Mac Miller is the king of social media when it comes to releasing music, and with Wiz’s Taylor Allerdice receiving some … [Read more...]
