A triple threat comes out of nowhere with Falcons, GoldLink, & Chaz French teaming up to create an energetic neck snapping tune entitled “Aquafina“. As Falcons first release after signing to Fool’s Gold Records “Aquafina” has all three artists bringing the heat on this eclectic track from Falcon’s upcoming Terra EP.

Falcons, a boiling put of styles, and genre-free influence is a producer and DJ from the buzzing LA based crew Athletixx, who is working to live up to his soaring namesake mixed with his buzzing live reputation (from Boiler Room sets, to Coachella). His musical tastes range from world music, to southern rap to everything in between. With a four track EP entitled Terra which is set to drop on July 17th, 2015, Falcons only rules are to push the boundaries of conventional r&b, rap, and electronic music, and exploring new directions though never loosing sight of the dancefloor.

DMV artist GoldLink has enjoyed a steady stream of buzz after his mixtape “God Complex” has been widely considered one of the best releases of 2014. Since then, GoldLink has achieved the honor of being on XXL’s Freshman List for 2015, among Fetty Wap, Vince Staples, and OG Maco, among others.

Chaz French, who has collaborated with GoldLink in the past, is repping Washington DC and is coming off of his debut album “Happy Belated“. In an interview with Complex, Chaz French had stated that in regards to the title of his album, “I feel like my music is my contribution or gift to share with the world, and it’s taken a lot of sacrifice, struggle, and time to get it out. No matter how long it took, I’m here to share the gift with the world. When you give somebody a gift later than it was expected, we say Happy Belated.”

In terms of “Aquafina” itself, the track begins with some impressive production from Falcons, effectively pulling the listener in and gearing up up for the rest of the track. Before long, the beat drops and immediately has you bopping your head and tapping your foot which is exactly when GoldLink jumps in with his infectious sound and undeniably catchy chorus. GoldLink can hold his own whether he’s handling a hook, or a verse and his versatility and skill is quite apparent on this one. Chaz French is next up, and hits us with his confident bars and lyrical content, where his clear sound completes the track, adding a pleasant contrast to the rest of the tune. To end off “Aquafina”, there is a focus on Falcons pristine production skills, until the track comes to a complete end.

Tonight marks the first time that this triple threat will perform “Aquafina” together at The Roxy in LA. GoldLink is currently in the middle of his headlining tour, with Falcons and Chaz French performing at select locations. GoldLink, Chaz, & Falcons will be sure to continue bringing earth shattering sounds all around the world. Will you be picking up Falcons Terra EP on July 17th? Let us know in the comments.

[Audio] Vince Staples Ft. Desi Mo – “Get Paid” [Prod: No I.D]

VinceStaplesGetpaid

Fast rising Def Jam signee Vince Staples, releases his second single off his ambitious debut studio double album “Get Paid”. Growing up in Long Beach, California Staples was exposed to daily gang violence and witnessed the tragic consequences that lifestyle leads to. With a mindset to be a voice for the voiceless, his appearances on projects by Odd Future and his collaboration mixtape Stolen Youth with Mac Miller provided the young rapper with a platform to gain recognition and to succeed.

Already achieving critical acclaim for the Shyne Coldchain series and the Hell Can Wait EP, Vince Staples debut album Summertime ’06 is garnering high expectations. However, with No I.D as executive producer and possible features from Earl Sweatshirt, ScHoolboy Q, and Mac Miller the hype may be real.

If those names aren’t convincing enough, Vince has released two solid singles “Senorita” featuring Future and his most recent “Get Paid”to back it up. Thriving on well refined and pristine trap productions, “Get Paid” displays Vince in his element.

Produced by NO I.D, the instrumental is driven by an arpeggiated loop with uptempo claps and drum kicks. Rapping about his humble beginnings and using knowledge passed down by the “OGs”, Vince Staples is expressing what it takes to get paid and strive for a better life.

A common theme in most of his music, Vince is very dedicated to helping the kids in the tougher neighbourhoods to stray away from getting involved in gangs or criminal activities and realize their potential and pursue what they love.

Summertime ’06 is set to be released June 30th.

[Audio] Sango – “Papers”

sangopapers

The OVO, AGO, and Soulection super producer Sango has quietly been elevating beat culture to new heights. Working with a wide range of artists in all different genres, Sango is growing to become an all a round great music producer.

Specializing in melodic, downtempo, and electronic music with samples of Brazilian and R&B, the young Seattle producer creates truly unique music and “Papers” is no exception. Immediately beginning with a very 90’s R&B loop of bright piano keys, layered with a high pitch female vocal, drum kicks and atmospheric 808s, his lone single is incredibly catchy.

In an industry with countless competitors, Sango has effortlessly stood out. Mastering unorthodox time signatures, sounds, and chord progressions his skills are undeniable. However, the best attribute Sango has acquired is becoming a great mood setter and developing an intense yet subtle atmospheric feels and ambience.

Having a relatively quiet year, be on the look out for more surprise releases, Sango is definitely planning more music for 2015.  Really feeling this track? Feel free to comment in the section below.
