K-Woody – Heard Of Us

K-Woody dropped a brand new track over Drake’s “Lord Knows” beat on The Fresh Heir. The up and comer from Boston completely owns the track. The Track is called “Heard Of Us” and in it Woody talks about the 12for12 movement in Boston. For those of you who don’t know, 12for12 is a movement in Boston that is bringing the local Hip Hop scene together and trying to push it to prominence. You can check out some of the 12for12 cyphers here.

The flow in the track goes perfectly with the beat and Woody delivers some stunning lines ‘this that old school meets new school like reunions’ and ‘runnin’ with it like I’m Forrest’. K-Woody is one artist that constantly amazes me with his versatility and drive, there is no doubt that he is definitely one to watch and if you haven’t already then make sure you download his debut mixtape here, like his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter.

The amazing Catalina Gonzalez released her debut EP, Old Soul, New Voice on July 23rd and it is amazing. For those of you who, for some reason, don’t already know about Cat and her music: Catalina Gonzalez is a Chilean singer/songwriter who has been putting out both original songs and covers for a while now. Old Soul, New Voice is an all orignal, except one song, seven song EP. (With a little surprise for those of you who download it!) The EP showcases Cats amazing singing voice and her skill on the guitar.

Each song on the EP tells a story and the style varies from song to song. With an upbeat intro track leading straight into the absolutely beautiful and emotional, Proof. After listening to the EP for the fifth time in two days, I honestly can’t figure out why more people don’t know about Cat. You can download the EP below or you can get it here.

K-Woody – Be Easy

It’s been a minute since we’ve seen some new K-Woody but as expected he drops yet another great song. The track samples Radical Something’s, Be Easy. When I saw the cover art for the track I had guessed that Woody would do something with Radical Something’s track but this is way beyond what I expected.

Anyone who has listened to Woody knows that he is constantly evolving and keeps getting better with each track he puts out. Be Easy has a chilled out mellow vibe to it and it really shows how far Woody has come in the last year. The flow and beat come together perfectly and all in all it’s a perfect addition to the Summer playlist. Check out the song below… And if you haven’t done it already then follow K-Woody on Twitter, like the Facebook page and download his debut mixtape, Livin’ On The Flow here.

Cinema (Skrillex) X Disperate Youth (Santigold) acapella remix

Even as I wrote it, that title sounded confusing. But what other way could I put it. Basically I saw this video about a week back and I’ve been trying to figure out if it’s real or fake. And from what I can gather and from the other videos on Mike’s Youtube page, it’s the real deal.

The video is part beatboxing, part Ableton mastery and part epic Dubstep faces from Mike. It’s a step away from what he usually does but there’s no denying that he has some serious talent. At points it’s hard to believe that this is actually just one guy and some software making this.

Even if you don’t like Dubstep you need to watch the video just for the sheer talent that this guy has. If you like what you hear then please follow Mike on Twitter, like his facebook page and subscribe to his Youtube here.

Crossover Kidz – His Pain II. Do or Die series part 2

The Crossover Kidz are back with the second instalment of their Do or Die series. This week the track is a bit shorter and is the complete opposite to what we saw in the first week. The track called His Pain II is a piano driven chilled out track.  It has a more jazzy feel to it but is just as dope as the last track. Keep an eye out for the next part and in the mean time follow the Crossover Kidz on Twitter and like the page on Facebook to keep up with all the new music.

Timeflies – We Found Love

It’s nearly 4am and I just saw this on Youtube. Timeflies drop a video to a brand new track off their upcoming mixtape. This track is classic Timeflies with massive bass, some sick sampling and Cal laying down some slick vocals.  Expect big things from these guys in the near future. For now, turn it up and demolish that replay button. Follow the guys on Twitter and like the Facebook page to keep up with all the news on the upcoming mixtape and the all original album they have in the works. You can download the song here.

Devlin – Watchtower ft Ed Sheeran (Official video)

For a blog based in Ireland I don’t post much music from Ireland or England but today that’s gonna change.

The video above is for the single Watchtower from English rapper, Devlin. The track samples The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s  legendary song, All Along The Watchtower. The song isn’t your typical rap track, it goes from loud and in your face to slowed down and chilled out before jumping into the rock instrumental. Ed Sheeran sings Bob Dylans part from the original track as well.

The video works perfectly with the song and all in all it’s definitely a song that needs to be played at high volumes. The only criticism I have about the video is the fact that they left in all the background noise and the audio from the video itself. The added audio makes the track feel like it’s part of a bigger movie and I hope they make a sequel to the video.

You will need to watch this video three times at least. Once for the actual video itself, once to listen to the song itself and finally you will need to turn it up and press play. Follow Devlin and Ed on Twitter and check out their Facebook pages, DevlinEd Sheeran.

Crossover Kidz – Everything I Am. Do or Die series part 1

The first time I did a post on the Crossover Kidz I was pretty blown away. The first track I heard from them was the uber catchy laid back, Thrill Of It. When I got an e-mail from the guys manager, Joe, telling me about a new series they were doing I was expecting something along the lines of Chris Webby’s A.D.D series or Wiz Khalifa’s Day Today. Instead I got an awesome track called Everything I Am. The track is slow and melodic and is definitely one for the Summer playlist when you want to just kick back and chill out. If all the Do or Die series is as good as this then I can’t wait to see what they come out with.

Missy Modell feat Danny Olson-Where Have You Been (remix)

Missy Modell is back at it again. This time she takes on Rihanna’s smash hit, Where Have You Been. As per usual, Missy takes the song and makes it her own. Missy may do a lot of covers but I am continually amazed at how she takes each and every song she does and puts her own unique spin on it. Check the video out and show Missy some love on Twitter and like her page on Facebook.

K-Woody-Brooklyn I Am (D.O.A remix)

K-Woody is back at it again. The kid from Boston just dropped of a dope remix of Jay-Z’s track, D.O.A  (Death Of Autotune).  And I’m gonna be honest, I wasn’t that into the original song by Jay-Z  but, as per usual Woody killed it. D.O.A has a slow, smooth almost Jazzy beat to it and Woody changes up his flow to suit the beat.

Every time I have to do a post on K-Woody I’m pretty psyched because I know that he’s gonna deliver every time. Just listen to the song. Woody’s flow suits the beat perfectly and the verses flow seamlessly through. I can honestly say I’ve listened to it at least six times in the last half hour. That’s all I’m gonna say.

So make sure you like the page on Facebook. Follow Woody on Twitter and show some love by downloading his debut mixtape, Livin’ On The Flow
