Some people show us support, but Andrea K. Castillo is our NYC connect. Super tied into the coolest and emerging lifestyle events and culture, yet she always shows us love. So when her website “A Day in the Life of Andrea” turns 4 and she turns her video promo game up, we show love. If you know what’s good for you, you should follow her too.
Shouts to JLBrown on the vid capture.
South Africa has a house music scene like no other. From the street to the stadium the music, dance and overall culture has a distinct feel. Acts like Black Coffee, DJ Cleo, Spoek Mathambo & Okmalumkoolkat have made their names known outside of SA borders, but all the inspiration starts at home.
Respect to Boiler Room & Ballantine’s for putting together a sharp mini-doc on an essential music scene.
This mix is called Way Up, made in the Alps.Safari647 needed to get these hip hop, trap, remix, and grime tunes out into the universe. Featuring BBK’s Skepta & Wiley, new Yeezy, Drizzy, Jack U.. Oh and tracks from Brodinski • Brava is crazy. Enjoy the NSFW vibes. Tracklist after the jump.
WayUp Mix by Safari on Mixcloud
All sorts of tunes dropping lately, so hear’s the soundcloud of the 3 must have tracks.
First up it looks like grime is getting a look thanks to Yeezy & Drizzy, meanwhile we’ve been bumping it consistently. Thanks for catching up guys. BBK is getting a look with Skepta and Wiley leading the pack. Don’t leave JME he’s the real genius.
Up next there’s word on a Major Lazer album releasing this year. You know the formula. Diplo gets the tip-off. Gets a bubbling artist, from an under represented area (Caribbean, Brazil, Sweden, etc.). Blows them the f*ck up. Well, meet Mø.
Last but not least the Travi$ Scott & Young Thug track get re-trapped by RL Grime & Salva. Win x4!
Ever needed music to describe a feeling? Safari jumped in to drop an overdue mix for his move to colonize the Swiss starting with Lausanne. He starts the mood with the core golden era hiphop than evolves into more current sounds before wrapping it up with the roots & culture. Definitely a genre switcher, but it’s all about changing things up right?
If you been with us since Volume #1 just press play. But for those that are new to this Pump& Grind legacy, check the back catalogue. Chunes upon tchunes upon tunes that incorporate the heaviest EDM production with the most dangerous dancehall and soca vocals. Yup Pete Funk hooked you up with that Carnival warm up tape. Press play, get on bad and check the tracklisting below.
You feel the carnival vibes picking up around this time of year. Just in time Major Lazer gets Sean Paul & carnival King Machel Montano involved for 1 Wine. It feels like the upgrade to the Bookshelf Riddim. Jah knows that riddim buss the careers of artist like Sean Paul. This one should break down the crowd on the Savannah in Trinidad for the next 2 weeks!
