I’m going to share with my Bloggerhouse readers the 5 songs that have been receiving the most burn in my iTunes & iPod Touch at the present moment. You’ll enjoy this, trust me:
1. Quelle f/ Denmark Vessey “Deal With It” (prod. by Quelle)
I also could’ve replaced this with “Dick Ridah” easily. The entire “Blue Mondays” LP occupied my Top 20 played for the week. If you didn’t download it yet get it from Poisonous Paragraphs right now. You won’t be disappointed in the least.
2. Danny! f/ Von Pea “Hoedown Showdown“
Danny Swain & Von Pea bodied this track. I’m not sure if Von Pea or Danny produced the track but it’s ridiculous and they both squeezed all the blood out of it possible. The length of the track makes you want to rewind it. The beat & lyrics scream out for another play. Then you just say “Fuck it, I’ll play it for 10 straight minutes and let the album play all the way”. Then you replay another song. I can’t wait to review this album.
3. Blackroc (Black Keys) f/Raekwon The Chef “Stay Off The Fuckin’ Flowers” (prod. by Black Keys)
This jawn was easily one of my favorite tracks off of the highly anticipated Dame Dash helmed, Black Keys produced Blackroc project. It’s so gutter & grimy that I kinda wish that it was on “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx 2″ (which would’ve made it all the more ridiculous). I played the hell outta this song this week *Keeps self from playing it again*
4. Boog Brown “Any Mode” (prod. by 14KT)
Boog Brown, who you may have heard on Aarophat & Illastrate’s amazing “Black Noise” LP will be giving folks eargasms when her “Miss Black America” mixtape & her collaboration with Apollo Brown “UPS” finally drop. Just hearing her murder one of my favorite tracks off of 14KT’s “The Golden Hour” let me know that we may have some classic material on our hands soon. Check out her MySpace page for more heat.
5. Portformat “Purple Planet” (prod. by Portformat)
Senegalese producer/beatmaker Portformat has crafted a ridiculous album that will drop on December 3rd courtesy of the good people @ Tokyo Dawn Records. All I can tell you is that “The Repeat Factor” will be taking a lot you by surprise. I’ve been waiting to hear this finished project for months and it was well worth the wait. Dayum!
