The ability to stand out/be outlandish nowadays has almost become more important than the vocal ability of an artist. Cue Suzi Analogue, a Pennsylvania native who fuses faded/creative beats with her smooth vocals to create a very under-rated mixtape.

These guys out of Detroit sound like the exact opposite of what I would expect any band out Detroit to sound like. I may not know very much about Detroit, and what I do know I can thank Eminem for, but I do know that Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. are my favourite act of Detroit. These guys are light and poppy and make songs that can’t help but make even a rainy day feel sunny, as lame as that sounds its true.
If you don’t have the star slinger mix tape volume 1 seriously, I don’t care what you are doing, get on that. You can download it for free here. I have been meaning to write this post for a while and then forget about it, luckily for you all I just stumbled across it in my itunes. I really like how he has mixed in hip hop elements without it being over the top gangster while keeping it playful. By far one of the best new releases in a while cuz hey I have listened to the mix-tape over and over for the past few hours and I’m still not bored.
Dominique Young Unique‘s hyper active rapping atop the ubiquitous beat on Show My Ass is clever and grabbing. Although constantly being compared to M.I.A. spawn Rye Rye, Dominique is assuredly exemplifying that she is incomparable.
If you know me you know I love anything asian, well not so much the music, Japanese and Korean pop music is kinda the worst thing ever but I do love me some chinese mountain music. So as soon as I saw that fellow asian Nicholas Ng, also known as Fiveng, was repping it to the fullest for us I was more than excited. He makes some of the most beautiful electronic pop music of the moment and has only given us a taste of what he can do, I can’t wait for more from him to hit the internet I have a feeling its going to be a big hit.
