- Also, Pharell + Daft Punk = pop royalty collaboration of the year. We are lucky indeed.
Everyone’s favorite Ivy Leaguer rapper is back with a vengeance on her new scorcher of a mixtape,West Ghost. On Hail Mary, produced by Felix Cartal, K.Flay spits so hard, the Danny Brown verse is an (annoying) distraction. Skip the hefty college loans and get K.Flayducated instead.
If you are looking for an answer to the question “what is good dubstep,” i.e. a Shrillex-free zone of mellifluous repose for your ears, look no further. At the risk of sounding like a hipster plucked straight out of Portlandia, true dubstep heads have known about London-based Zomby for quite a while. He has often drawn comparisons to Burial and his penchant for face-obscuring masks and general elusiveness parallels the former’s mo as well. His last album, 2011’s Dedication, was a culmination of Zomby’s fluency in a number of genres from jungle to garage to dubstep. WITHLOVE was the only thing posted last week on Zomby’s new website, hinting at the arrival of a new album on 4AD in the summer.
