The Fader just premiered a new track from Earl’s forthcoming album Doris. A song that they’ve been performing for awhile (Mac made an appearance at Coachella), “Guild” is like muddy water when it comes to sound. But dip past the murky surface and the lyrics are unreal.
After just heading out on their first national tour alongside JMSN, Lovelife, and The 1975, Los Angeles’ once mysterious band decided to let go of this track. Their hip-hop influence is clearer than ever on “West Coast”, a brooding tune with a suave attitude.
From blowing on to the scene with some amazing remixes, to changing the face of trap with he and Lunice’s power duo TNGHT, to signing to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music label, Ryan Hemsworth has had a huge year. And despite his undeniable rise he’s still giving shit out for free. Download some ethereal new material from one of the trailblazers in electronic music below.

Black Hippy hasn’t gone anywhere. The crew is in full effect on a vicious remix of Rocko’s breakout hit, and they pull no punches. Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, and Ab-Soul spit the best bars of the week without a doubt.
It’s been awhile since we got a substantial drop from Abel. Here are two dark tracks from what I hope is an upcoming project: the songs change a little over 3 minutes in.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m really into this kind of music lately. Sparse soundscapes, warped vocals, and a head-nod-inducing bass line that’s perfect for chilling out to. Kill Them With Colour will be releasing an album titled Tropic Thunder in June.
Nappy Roots popped into my head the second this started playing. Brothers From Another have captured the carefree, driving with the top-down feeling that we’re all itching for as summer gets closer. Enjoy!

Akouo has a way of finding a song’s pulse and amplifying it in the best way possible.The Tasmanian producer did it with Flume’s “Bring You Down”, and he’s done it again with this Tycho record. Sit back and relax.
This is about as calming as it gets. Ryan Hemsworth combined just the right blend of chimes and synths and echoes to put me in a trance for a couple minutes. Zone out to this.
One of the lesser known members of Chicago’s Save Money crew, Tokyo Shawn, dropped off a new cut from his upcoming project.. It has a mellow tone and consistent delivery that’s more than welcome at this time of night.
