[Video] Natasha Kmeto - "Dirty Mind Melt"

Anyone who knows me knows I have been a fan of Natasha Kmeto for a while. Her music is everything I love about classic RnB (I'm talking 30 years of classic, not just back to en vouge), produced with an ear for the dialed frequencies and complex rhythms of EDM. While a lot of the new electronic music is mired in overuse of wobbles, big drops, and non-stop rattling (thanks "dubtrap"), Natasha creates subtle, spacious arrangements that make room for her powerful voice. Dirty Mind Melt, the lead single of her new EP of the same name, is subtle, featuring a repeated sample that offers all the context you need to let the music narrate the scene.
Watch the video, it feels like french new wave.
Listen to the whole EP at Dropping Gems, it feels like 4am.

[Honest Hip Hop] Hump Jones "The Lamentations" leak off #SQUIDTAPE

New joint from Hump Jones, apparently a leak from the upcoming SQUIDTAPE which I can only imagine is his collabo with DJ Squid. Deep soul break with that smooth flow he's been perfecting for years out in the frozen lands of Vermont. I'm looking forward to hearing more Hump Jones this year, hopefully this means its all finally coming out.

[video] Abadawn - "Very Much"

If you've paid a modicum of attention to things I do out here then you know that Abadawn is the homie and a frequent collaborator. He's a strange dude for sure, but in my world that's a commendation. One of the realest and most honest emcees in the town and probably in the whole damn game for that matter. Anyway he's always putting together new things and this joint he recorded in the old Big Bang studio and then brought downstairs to make a video in the absurd layout of Grant Michael's Industrial Antiques. Its....well its Abadawn, ya know?
