August 22nd, 2020

Israel-based based DJ & producer Moscoman is back on Moshi Moshi Records with ‘Eyes Wide Strut’, linking up with UK’s WOOZE. Built on the foundation of a flavorful bassline, the cut unravels with the unique vocal prowess of WOOZE, as they develop a retro feel while remaining truly fresh. A gripping and immersive, 80s-inspired official video for the track takes the release to new heights, diving deeper into that vintage notion.

‘This is inspired by an Israeli song ‘I Don’t Dance When I’m Sad’, for some reason it moved me to create this one, a very climactic tune with super juxtaposed lyrics written by the amazing WOOZE boys’, says Moscoman about the new track.

‘Eyes Wide Strut’ is a part of Moscoman’s NEW album ‘Time Slips Away’, out now on Moshi Moshi Records.

Action Bronson on Hot Ones + Latin Grammys

August 20th, 2020

Last week Action Bronson made his second appearance on Hot Ones…the first to ever used grilled chicken instead of wings on the show. Also, he’s unveiled his first new music of 2020 with the release of “Latin Grammys” produced by Tommy Mas via Loma Vista Recordings. Over a slinky brass and guitar loop, the Queens legend raps with gusto about swim trunks stuffed with cash, driving like Dale, Sr. (with his feet up), Dolph Lundgren and Derek Jeter. “It’s Young Baklava, you know me,” he reminds us.

In addition to the release of new music, Action Bronson continues to set the bar for rap renaissance man. He makes a special appearance in the Pete Davidson film, King of Staten Island, (Action made his acting debut in Scorsese’s The Irishman). The season four finale of the food & travel show he hosts, F*ck, That’s Delicious, aired last week on VICE TV and will continue broadcasting and streaming this summer. He also hosts a bi-weekly musical variety show Live From the Moon on Beats1 / Apple Music, continues to create custom ice creams for Morgensterns, and raps over The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” in the trailer for EA’s UFC 4 game, in which he’s also a playable character.

WATCH – Run The Jewels – JU$T [ft. Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha] (Lyric Video) + Cannibis Collab

August 18th, 2020

As if Run The Jewels’ latest lyric video for “JU$T” isn’t already a trip, wait until you watch it with their new cannabis line in hand. The hip-hop duo’s new visual for the track “JU$T” — featuring Pharrell Williams and Zack de la Rocha — hit last week, and El-P and Killer Mike also announced the launch of their collaboration with the cannabis producer LEMONNADE.

The stop-motion, cut-and-paste visual was created by Pulse Films’ Winston Hacking, who says he “worked closely with Run The Jewels to create a satirical time-capsule of 2020 thus far, capturing the sentiment of their song using collage animation.”

“Drawing on the influence of Public Enemy’s classic ‘Shut ‘Em Down’ video, we combined cut up images from contemporary and historical events into a psychedelic protest vignette, a visual fuck you to systemic racism,” Hacking said.

The video would likely go over well with the new RTJ-branded cannabis strain, the appropriately titled “Ooh La La.”

WATCH – Sylvan Esso “Ferris Wheel

August 17th, 2020

Sylvan Esso, the musical stylings of Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn, are back with a new single. “Ferris Wheel” arrives off the tracklist from their third studio album Free Love, which is due out in full on September 25th via Loma Vista. “It’s a record about being increasingly terrified of the world around you and looking inward to remember all the times when loving other people seemed so easy, so that you can find your way back to that place,” the band wrote in a press statement.

Armed with a brigade of corkscrew synths and a hopscotch-ready hook, “Ferris Wheel” stays pretty faithful to the sound Meath and Sanborn have cultivated across their first two records. If that isn’t tempting enough, they seal the deal with a pan flute solo for the ages. Watch its equally vibrant, SuperCollider-directed video below.
