The Banana Tits EP by Computo is out now.
Superstar is a talented artist who has the humility of “David Banner” the work ethic of “Lil Wayne” and the passion for music like one of his favorite artists and town mate “B.O.B” combined. “SUPERSTAR 9000” positions himself and his music on what he calls “Universal Ground”- things everyone can relate to!
Another beautiful vocal from Julie Walehwa over the uptempo jazzy production by Josh One. Also features live instrumentation from Patrick Bailey (Breakestra, Rebirth), Caleb Speir (Estelle, Justin Timberlake) and an additional guest appearance from Buff1 of Crown Royale. Mixed by Ian Boxill.

Fresh off the success of his “Never Wrong Remix” video, T-Dot emcee Miles Jones is serving up another heavy-hitter with “Time Machine”, the new scorcher off his upcoming album, Runaway Jones (April 26th, MB3 Records). Currently the third most added hip-hop track on US college radio charts, “Time Machine” is set for release as a stand alone single on March 8th. Last month, the track received a nomination for “Hip Hop Song of the Year”(2011) from the Independent Music Awards.
Hailing from a long line of reputable musicians, Miles’ grandfather Hedley Jones Sr. from Jamaica started Studio and was arguably the first to invent the electric guitar. His father Hedley Jones Jr aka Deadly Hedley was a DJ on CFNY and an early Toronto Club DJ pioneer. Miles went on to create a unique sound that honors the true origins of hip-hop and collaborate with A-list industry including Percee P, Detroit-based producer Black Milk, and most recently, Grammy award-winning producer Boi 1da. Miles has been the recipient of distinguished awards from the Billboard World Song Contest for “Hip Hop Song of the Year” (2010) and the Independent Music Awards for “Hip Hop Song of the Year” (2009) and “Hip Hop Artist of the Year” (2007). His music has been featured on major networks and hit television programs including CBS’ CSI: Las Vegas and the 2010 Winter Olympics. Time Machine by MilesJones

For the 24th installment of our Keep Watch Mix series, we bring to you the tropical bass stylings of Portugal’s Buraka Som Sistema. Given the group’s somewhat reclusive nature over the last few years, this mix is a particularly prized addition to our already illustrious collection. Their sabbatical has not been in vain, and if anything, these dudes have developed an even stronger grasp on the scene during that time off.
For those of you who know nothing of this MC/DJ unit, I’m here to alleviate any preconceived notions. First off, the crew is made up of two MCs (Kalaf and Conductor) and two DJ/Producers (Riot and J-Wow) who have been responsible for the ongoing rise of tropical-influenced dance music. Most notably, the crew has been associated with the infusion of broken bass beats into classic Kuduro – the perfect recipe for ass-shaking.
Given the instant notoriety that has been garnered by Moombahton recently, Buraka Som Sistema’s return to the scene couldn’t come at a more perfect time. With their fingers on the pulse of both the past and present, this gang of bass-laden misfits are poised and ready to strike a dancefloor near you.
Those of you already well versed with the group and the tropical dance scene in general probably already know that this Keep Watch Mix is gonna get you dancing – but let me just tell you right now that you have no idea what you’re about to get yourself into… Vibes from every end of the world accented with the crew’s signature Kuduro flex with a touch of bass weight. With that said, I leave you with a brief list of instructions to fully utilize this offering: download, blast at max, sweat to it, and repeat until desired effects.
