Onra::Mos Dub::Mind Spiders::Diamond K and Al Ripken Jr.
It's been a while since I posted last so I'll make this short and sweet. I'll also keep this one more upbeat than the past few, just to keep it more entertaining.
Onra is a newer DJ/producer and from France and is killing it on his new single Long Distances. The single contains elements of electronica, soul/funk, and hip-hop. Fans of artists like Dam Funk, Hudson Mohawk, Flying Lotus, Prince, and J Dilla will dig this. This EP has been playing nonstop in my room for a few weeks now. GET THIS!
Mos Dub is a new project that mixes Mos Def tracks with classic reggae tracks. It's produced by Max Tannone, a silly white kid from New York, who makes these great mash-ups. These are very appropriate summer songs. I'm very glad this happened.
Diamond K and Al Ripken Jr. are Baltimore club DJ/producers on the Top Billin' label. The new EP Hands in the Air is going to be playing in your local club soon, so you might as well get on this shit now. There's not really anything new going on here, but it's still good, fun Baltimore club to get down to. The Bok Bok remix of "Hands in the Air" on this record is my favorite, but the "Single Ladies, Single Fellas" track seems to be pretty popular as well. Wah-bam!
