Here’s Brown Bag AllStars doing big things again. J57, often linked to DJ Eclipse and the legendary DJ Premier has recently remixed a track for Shady Records’ Joell Ortiz. “Feels So Good (J57 Remix)” is the lead single off Ortiz upcoming EP and features cuts by fellow Brown Bagger, DeeJay Element.
After dropping the EP late last summer, denitia and sene are back at it again; this time with a full-fledged collaborative effort. Seven new tracks round out the LP which dropped on 19th, rightfully titled, "his and hers." Being a big fan of the EP, this project was definitely a long awaited one. Right off the bat, the album starts off with seven tracks produced by Sene (with some post-production and instrumentation help provided by Jay Jennings, Sly5thave and Cooper Heffley). The promise of head bopping production is not lost on this one and denitia starts right where she left off, serenading the crap out of you with her smooth voice.The standout tracks to check out are casanova., again. (new ride.), trip.fall. and the three original tracks from the EP (she's not the only one., how to satisfy., and blah blah blah.). This is honestly one of the best projects of 2013 thus far and I strongly encourage all of you to take a listen to the stream below and if you like it, support your independent artists and pick up their LP via iTunes.
For the second year in a row, Brown Bag AllStars has released a “year in review” style compilation of some highllight tracks they’ve released as a group and as solo acts in 2012. Backed by DJ Eclipse and DJ Premier, they stay grindin’ and making incredible hip hop music so check them out!
Twitter, a place for music. No wait, that was that other networking site. A lot of artists tweet us their music so from now on, every now and then, I’ll retweet and blog the good and probably do the same for the bad (with insulting remarks). Let’s start with the good, a Fat Beats (NY) alumni named Koncept who made this sick song called “Feel So Good.” This song has a addictive kick beat and fun lyrics which should not be surprising if you know any of the Fat Beats crew (I miss that place). Check out the song and video above and look out for the “real girl.”
