We gave this new Bobby K joint it’s radio premiere on First Ear Radio 007 last week and it’s now reached soundcloud for you. This joint fuses a Narinder Biba sample into a bouncy hip hop vibe. We’ve had a sneak peak at more of Bobby-K’s upcoming music and its safe to say he’s one all beat connoisseurs should keep an eye on.
Ventura County native Anderson Paak. (formely known as Breezy Lovejoy) just released his debut album “Venice” and it’s a incredible debut at that. A member of the Hellfyre Club with include talents like Nocando, Milo, and Rhetoric Ramirez, Anderson Paak truly fits in the talented crew and with this debut which includes amazing production and vocals is a great way to introduce himself. Including production from the likes of Lo Def, Mikos Da Gawd, Tokimonsta, DJ Nobody, Ta-Ku, and even from Anderson Paak himself really adds a spectrum of sounds that stays consistent through out the project but with it’s own distinct flavor on each track. The project is 16 tracks long and about 50 minutes in length and can heard in it’s entirety on his soundcloud but if you feel like paying for the project it can be picked up on itunes here and I urge to go get the project it really is worth the money and for a talented artist like Anderson he truly deserves the support.
As far as big festival tracks go, “Crank” is definitely one of them. However, the Kayzo and Seek N Destroy original is too vicious and badass to be put in the same category as big room tracks that you generally hear of. This is one monstrous record, but on top of it we have remixes from both Charlie Darker and Karluv Klub of Canada. As big as the original is, Charlie’s remix pushes the energy to a similar degree, however there is a much more jungle feel to the his remix, which brings a wild edge to the track. Then you have the trash king come in with a sleek drum & bass edit to close things out. I don’t generally purchase music, but I had to have these three singles for myself. Have a listen and add them to your library, but only if you are ready to CRANK THIS MOTHERFUCKER OUT!

With soulful vocals echoing through quivering beats, and synths laid out in a pausing staccato style – this record builds up, breaks down, and leaves you wanting more. UK producer Oliver Cean, better known as Oceaán, has been a favourite here at First Ear. Since releasing his self-titled EP at the end of March, Oceaán dropped the track “Grip” and has now released his latest record “Veritas”.
Both tracks will appear in his forthcoming EP – The Grip, which is set to release on 17 November via Chess Club Records. You can pre-order the EP here, but until the release date, listen in anticipation below.
I remember when I fell in love with this song when it came out in 1991 and I didn’t think I could’ve loved it any more than I already did but French funk producer DiscoRazor worked his magic and I can’t get enough.
On his Facebook page, he describes his style as, “the music playing in your head when you think about good times and childhood melancholic memories.” He’s not lying.
On the remix, DiscoRazor avoided touching MJ’s voice or the flow of the song, he just added extra bits of bass and synths turning this R&B tune into a funk masterpiece. I’ll be brave enough to say this is one of the best MJ remixes I’ve ever heard.
