RMR – Dealer

In Chill, Hip Hop, Zone Out by Jeff

After stirring up a massive buzz with his bizarre song and video for “Rascal”, rapper/singer/creative genius(?) RMR follows up with a new single called “Dealer”. The mysterious artist alternates between rueful vocals and rapid verses over a trap beat featuring twangy strings and a somber vibe. At first it might sound like another rapper boasting about the drug life, but in …

B’NOIR – Don’t Push Me

In Chill, Hip Hop, R&B by Jeff

Originally from the bay, now in L.A, hip hop/R&B artist B’NOIR makes a strong impression with his debut song, “Don’t Push Me”. Catchy verses are confidently delivered over whimsical production—a unique combination that really makes this one stand out. The first time I heard “Don’t Push Me” I was immediately hooked, and after listening to it repeatedly over the last few …

Y2K & bbno$ – lalala

In Hip Hop by Jeff

I first heard this one on a stupid instagram video and haven’t been able to get it out of my head. “lalala” is the first single off producer Y2K‘s upcoming EP, Dream Eater and it’s catchy as hell. It’s a collaboration between producer Y2K and Canadian rapper bbno$ that features a thumping beat and super catchy lyrics. It’s short, sweet, …

FLMMBOiiNT FRDii – ARE YOU DUMM?

In Hip Hop, R&B, Trap, Upbeat by Jeff

Spark Master Tape affiliate FLMMBOiiNT FRDii recently dropped this sweet summer banger, and I can’t get get enough. Like everything this crew puts out, it’s produced by Paper Platoon. And like everything Paper Platoon produces, it absolutely knocks. The beat revolves around a sample from the 1973 song “Come And Go With Me” by The Dell Vikings, and throws in …

MEMBA – O.D. (ft. TITUS)

In Bass, Dangerous, Electronic, Hip Hop by JeffLeave a Comment

MEMBA are back with another heater! “O.D.” is a nasty rap/electronic combo featuring TITUS‘s icy flow and heavy, extraterrestrial sounding production. The grinding bass immediately commands your full attention, but it’s the bizarre drop that takes things to another level. With their last few releases, MEMBA have become one of my favorite production duos doing it right now, and I …

SOUDIERE – 1976

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Hip Hop, Zone Out by JeffLeave a Comment

I’ve been really into the “chill beat with tough rap sample” thing lately, and nobody does it better than SOUDIERE. The French producer gets featured here regularly, and as long as he keeps pumping out quality tunes like this one, I don’t see that changing. His latest song, “1976,” features gorgeous production with sultry horns and percussion that thumps. And …

Tony – DEEPER ft. Ponsuda

In Beats, Chill, Collaboration, Downtempo, Dreamy, Hip Hop, Lo fi, Zone Out by JeffLeave a Comment

Tony and Ponsuda, two producers and members of the EVILSIDECREW collective, recently teamed up for “Deeper” — a dreamy beat featuring faded rap vocals from Rich The Kid, Famous Dex & Jay Critch’s “You Flexing“. The vocals take a backseat in this one, acting as a rhythmic compliment to the otherworldly production, and the results are nothing short of hypnotizing.
