Locke presents "Only Buggin" EP on T&A Records!


Described as "bridging the gap between Teddy Riley and Gorgon City," this one sparked our attention right away.  Locke has crafted a beautiful r&b infused dance vibe that is so super funky and full of soul that we don't really know what else to compare it to.  It's brilliant.

VIDEO: Leo Justi 'HVY BL NSS PRR'

Leo Justi really delivers on this new single.  The video for 'HVY BL NSS PRR' shows the incredible dance floor focus that this tune brings, and it's no surprise.  The single tempers baile funk influences with club music flavour from all over the world, with a highly energetic result.  The video shows what the club should look like with a track like this in the mix, the first single from the Rio dj's upcoming EP.  Try to take your eyes off this one, and watch for the EP coming soon!

Spotlight: Bas & Earth Gang on tour with Ab-Soul

Ab-Soul is out this fall on the 'These Days' tour.  Following his huge album he's traveling through North America putting on an incredible show, and bringing some impressive talent with him.  It's quite obvious to any who have heard 'These Days' that Ab-Soul is on a roll these days, but what he's doing with this tour is quite unexpected.  He's got a well selected lineup for these dates that show the audience a broad cross section of some of the most brilliant hip hop out these days.

Bas is hot off the release of the 'Last Winter' project.  It's an in-depth release, and it's out on Dreamville/Interscope and the final track features Dreamville founder J. Cole.  Also on the lineup is EarthGang, whose highly underrated 'Shallow Graves For Toys' provides perfect material for a live show.  These are two projects we'll be listening to a lot prior to the October 11th Toronto show at the Phoenix, and the October 15th Vancouver show at Fortune Sound Club.  Get tickets here!
