The Song: “yU Traveling (NYC Remix)” Feat. yU
Life on a road is rite of passage for every artist, and each stop on the journey leaves an indelible mark on those who pass through. Emcee and producer extraordinaire Oddisee, one third of one of 2009′s celebrated group Diamond District, is certainly no stranger to the travel game, having visited the shores of Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa and South America in the name of boom-bap. Be it the sleepy ambiance of a wayside town, or the frenetic energy of a major city, the experiences of Oddisee’s worldly adventures are channeled into his new 24-track instrumental album Traveling Man, out now digitally and available as a limited edition vinyl pressing on February 23rd. In an effort to re-imagine a trip into Gotham City, Oddisee has recruited fellow Diamond District rhyme-slinger yU as passenger for a remix to “NYC.” The Big Apple has never sounded so good, as yU laces an electric 16 bar verse over a vibrant track that captures a slice of the timeless spirit of the city. Infectious drums and soaring strings serve as a sonic travel guide through the boroughs as yU echoes the resilience of NYC, rapping that there’s “a lot more to do, but off to a good start.” Safe travels, everyone.
Oddisee’s Traveling Man is available digitally via Mello Music Group.

As artists and bloggers alike know that making it in this game isn’t easy. Kooley is lucky in that there are six members and there’s always someone to lean on when the doubt, the pressure, and the anxiousness of the industry bear down on you. But it wasn’t always this way, each individual member of Kooley High started out with a dream of doing this before they even knew of each other. Going it alone, in their “solitude” all they had was their love of hip-hop to bring them to the point where they could come together and make music for the people. Its that same element that keeps them going today. So whenever their off at their jobs, on a solo project, making a beat, or staying behind when the rest of the crew is out doing a gig…they can still find solace in their solitude because their love for the music will always bring them back together.
P.S. peep “My
Shadow” as well, if you haven’t heard

The Song: “Who Am I” (Marco Polo Remix)
Diamond District’s debut In The Ruff made huge waves last year – ending up on countless year-end lists including heavyweight websites KevinNottingham.com, PopMatters.com, and more, and also continued the avalanche of well-deserved attention to the previously underrated DMV hip-hop scene. Considering the impact that the album made, remixes of some of the cuts were inevitable. A reworking of “I Mean Business” by yU (1/3 of Diamond District) surfaced in late December, and now, Canadian producer Marco Polo, who contributed tracks to Masta Ace’s A Long Hot Summer, Sadat X’s Black October and various Boot Camp Clik projects, including his own Double Barrel project with Torae, is the latest to add new flavor to one of the tracks – reworking one of the album’s top songs, “Who I Be.”
In addition to getting the track out early for fans, Marco Polo’s “Who I Be” Remix will be appearing on Mello Music Group’s Diamond District Remixes album, as well as Duck Down Records’ The Stupendous Adventures Of Marco Polo. Even before hearing the track, the pairing of Marco Polo’s patented boom bap with Diamond District’s own break beat heavy sound is a logical match. Marco Polo’s new flavor is apparent right out of the box, as he drops the low end and adds a serving of catchy keys that give the song a fresh and more bouncy feel. On enlisting Marco Polo for the remix, Mello Music Group founder and Director of Operations, Michael Tolle, says, “Given the success of In The Ruff, we wanted to keep the remixes in a few select hands. Oddisee reached out to Marco on the strength of his Double Barrel release with Torae. and Marco came thru with a big radio friendly remix that made fresh use of the original ODB sample.” Keeping the remixes in ready supply, in the coming weeks fans can also expect a remix of “Streets Won’t Let Me Chill” by Detroit’s own Apollo Brown.
