My name is Kev Turner. I’m an up and coming independent emcee from West Philly. I represent real hip hop in its purest form but still have the versatility that is necessary to be successful on a global scale. You may have heard my name mention on ESPN’s Sportscenter this year &/or heard my music played by Statik Selektah on Eminems Shade 45, etc. My new single is “Mic Murderer Exclusive” produced by Jay Ellyiot from Toronto.

My name is Psymun, I’m a 21-year-old producer from Minneapolis and I’m sending over a track I produced for a Maryland MC named Dexter Fizz. It’s called “The Demigod.” The beat was sent out to a few rappers, but Dexter was the first one to actually do something with it. I was so pleased with the outcome that I suggested the two of us do a project together. He agreed with the suggestion, so I can promise a “Dexter Fizz X Psymun” album will be released in the near future.

This is the 2nd video by Montreal group Dirty Deeds who released a series of 7 videos on DirtyDeeds.TV of people they found on craigslist to play games naked to new beats from the upcoming ” Let’s be friends” album. For a guy that sees tons of a videos a day, I think this concept is pretty damn original.

Detroit,MI Hip-Hop recording artist Adam Reverie releases his latest single “Well Do Dat” off forthcoming Mixtape Michigan Autumns: Ballad Of Adam Reverie due this November. The single expresses Reverie’s displeasure with the broken promises he’s encountered along his musical journey thus far. Reverie displays diverse wordplay accompanied with a unique delivery over Detroit based producer Wyle Hunnit’s (@HunnitsWorld313) production.

Two of Chicago’s finest, Kenlo Key and September 6th, come together to bring you “Windows Up”.The 6th produced track is a smooth joint geared to melt the night life! Both of these dreamchaserz/intavention reps are currently hard at work on their respective solo projects coming soon!
On the heels of two critically acclaimed singles, “I Tried So Hard” and “The Eveningtime”, the enigmatic troubadour known as Night Works (aka Gabriel Stebbing, ex of Metronomy and Your Twenties) is getting ready to release a brand new cut from his forthcoming debut, the delicious slice of off-kilter pop that is “Modern European”.
Wistful and sleekly infectious, “Modern European” epitomises what it is exactly that Night Works does so well, which is to imbue a shiny pop hook with an elegiac air of melancholia and nostalgia, creating, in effect, a track that is as instantly addictive as it is indelibly moving. Stebbing’s beautiful vocals may take cues from the legendary likes of Hall & Oates but the end product is undoubtedly and gorgeously his very own creation.
Also, later in the year, watch out for some exciting debut live dates from Night Works, as he presents ‘The Eveningtime’: his much-anticipated residency at the Sebright Arms, along with some very special guests. And if that’s not enough, he’s been personally invited by Azealia Banks to DJ at her much hyped private show at the London Aquarium on October 8th!

patiently waiting to get this to you. It will feature guest
appearances from Thurz, Rich Kidd, Relic, Daxflow, Tamsynn-Lee and of

in the air, and this is the final product. We also must give a big
thanks as always to DJ Docta on the cuts. Killed it. Well, enough of

London-based producer Mosca demolished dancefloors last year with his single ‘Bax’, a bounding, old-school flavoured fusion of speed garage and bassline house. With ‘What You Came For’, he revisits and reconstructs it around a buoyant vocal from Katy B…
Katy first wrote the song with the intention of just playing it at her live shows over the summer, but the response was so positive Mosca and Rinse decided to record and release it in full. “If you ain’t moving, tell me what you came for,” the chorus runs, neatly summing up the track’s appeal. Expect to hear it rumbling through sound systems and setting dancefloors ablaze for the foreseeable future.

First up, ‘Bad Manners’ BLAKE EVERETT dons Buster Bloodvessel’s Docs to deliver a skankin’ review of the latest David Ayer buddy cop opus ‘End of Watch.’ Our moonstompin’ movie maven lays down the law in a special ‘Blake at the Movies’. Not to be outdone, MYSTI MAYTAL–er, MAYH3M–boldly toasts an evil woman who bridged the gap between Hollywood biopic fodder and the Medellin police blotter . You’ll agree, this two-tone ‘Mysti Obit’ goes one step beyond your usual eulogy. And rounding out our rocksteady roster: EDDIE ‘Rude Boy’ ROUSE.

Continuing our obscure musical bent, Matt and Matt take a trip to THE BAYERNHOF MUSEUM. Located in Sharpsburg, PA the Bayernhof Museum was erected by the late (and extremely eccentric) entrepreneur Charles B. Brown III. Boasting ten fireplaces, eight baths, eleven fully-stocked wet bars, faux cave, subterranean swimming pool, ten foot waterfall, countless hidden passageways, an authentic canning kitchen, a domed star gazing crow’s nest, and rooms devoted to elaborate in-jokes, Brown’s former lair has been preserved–per his will–as a showcase for his world renowned collection of turn of the century automatic musical instruments. A staggering feat of architecture and antiquity, meticulously chronicled in a stellar Pussyfoot PDF, so do’t forget to download, gang…
All that plus a playlist that’ll have you pickin’ it up up through fall, featuring Millie, Silencers, Desmond Dekker, Rico, Symarip, Dice the Boss and many more.

“Music is medicine, do everything with Love, from a Dream to Reality.
In the daily hustle of creating music, film, art and building for your community, time and space seems to move with or against you. I chose to move with it after I had to have a self realization of the importance of being through my creations, friends, family, community and Love. It did not come easy for my spirit, from past traumas handed down through my Anishinabe-Ojibwe side of the family with settler colonialism, the daily struggles of growing up in Southwest Detroit, and the self hatred I began to cultivate for myself every time I phucked something up, I had to Rise Up and didn’t know how, especially being self destructive and not coherently thinking.
The inner struggles of one self can be destructive if not balanced correctly, I feared of being nobody or not giving my fullest potential back to my 7 generations and neglected to honor the ones before me.
So I started talking to myself… And with the medicines of Turtle Island I turned my fears into Loves, and got swole from self belief and critical thinking from the power of The Universe we’re all apart of. Giving thanks to every walks of life.
Slowly I began to dream vividly again after I asked the Creator to take away the nightmares from previous depressions and anxiety attacks I would lose the fight to. Nightmare or beautiful, messages were being sent, powerful ones, once again.
Dreams of songs coming from East of Turtle Island, waking up with the sunrise, spider webs, SunFlowerz & floral patterns, the power & beauty of our hands, making hip hop exist in Clark Park with drum beats, Lions, indigenous geometrical designs, a blue orb, the infinity of stars, the vibrating unique reverb from the strike of the native Drum, new alliances & relationships, and a turtle my mother would hand me before she actually did the day before my new chapter in NYC.
All those dreams to me just mean we come from Love and Her creations are beautifully divine.
Before I left to the East of Turtle Island, I lost all my equipment, hard drives with a $hit load of beats and recordings, and my tools to create my artistry. They’re in the form they we’re bounced down to for drafts, recording, or demos, they’re in their rawest form. This batch of beats survived the wreckage and like a Phoenix from the ashes, they exist on Mother Earth to share,
This is a sonic story of a spirit Rising Up.”
With the October 4th release date fast approaching, Atlanta-based production group, SMKA, in conjunction with Thizzler On The Roof and environmentally-friendly lifestyle brand C4 Belts, is preparing the final elements for their mixtape, Darkest Before Dawn. The mixtape features some of the Bay Area’s most talented up-and-coming artists, including IamSu!, Zumbi (of Zion I), Shady Blaze, Roach Gigz, DaVinci, DB Tha General, and more rapping over SMKA production. Following previous singles “Greatness” and “Ain’t A Thing,” Mistah F.A.B. and Willie Joe deliver on “Automatic,” the final single before release date.
Rapping over a mellow, bubbling beat from SMKA, Mistah F.A.B. and Willie Joe, two of the most veteran artists featured on Darkest Before Dawn, recount their experiences of seeing people make it to the big stage and forgetting about the people who helped them along the way. “The message we hope to convey is for artists who get in a position to help out should do so,” quips Mistah F.A.B. “Especially the ones who said they would,”
When asked about working with Willie Joe, F.A.B. responds: “Willie Joe came with a very nice hook – one that I think all cats in the position we’re in can feel – and I just went with the topic because its something I’ve personally been through.” An experience many rappers can relate to in the business, you can hear the frustration in their voices as the two express themselves, and for F.A.B., it was a relief to get the feelings off his chest. “The misconception of others’ motives can be heartbreaking,” laments F.A.B. “The elating moments come when addressing issues like this.”
