Angel Haze is hands down one of the sickest female emcee’s in the game right now. After releasing her Reservation EP earlier this summer I heard a couple of her tracks and immediately she caught my attention. She has an extremely strong mic presence and although she has a similar voice to Nicki Minaj she makes you forget that she even exists. Here is a remix of her banger New York reworked by the British new wave songwriter King Krule.
Even though this song dropped about a month ago via RZA’s ‘The Man with the Iron Fists’ soundtrack I still have to feature ‘White Dress’ as track of the day. Kanye pulls out all the stops on this one. The smooth and melodic beat sets the tone which was produced by RZA himself. Kanye nonchalantly flows for 3 minutes straight about the up’s and down’s of a past relationship and does it with so much style. Pay attention for the catchy punchlines. Happy Hump Day ya’ll.

Long time no see! It’s time to get this ball rolling with tasty tunez. Last night I was listening to a bunch of random jams on my laptop that I acquired while DJing at 90.3 WRST; and stumbled upon a couple of albums that I completely forgot about and used to love!
Introducing – Another Late Night/Late Night Tales. http://www.latenighttales.co.uk/
This is a mix series put together by a combination of DJ’s and recording artists that is released about 2-3 times a year. The musicians goal is to put together their idea of the best possible late night mix. I was checking out MGMT’s mix for the series which was released about a year ago and came across their original track titled ‘All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.’ Here is an animated video to accompany the song which is eye candy as well.
