Check out the fresh and summery new video from Chicago’s Keith Masters – “Very First Time”!
For all those looking for a new mix to get you through December, DJ and Rapper-Songwriter ASSAL has something fresh for your ears. Born in Germany and from a Persian background, ASSAL is that world class #veryrare chic tweaking your favorite genres with a global sound reminiscent of her upbringing. ASSAL and her music ignore traditional boundaries with her compositions combining elements of electronic, dance, alternative, hip hop and world music.
Her eclectic background not only shows through in her music, but in her unique sense of style as well. This jet setting partygoer and fashionite evokes global glamour, classic cool, and edginess all at once. What we’d like to call a “cultural cocktail.” Yes we just coined that. A tastemaker in her own right – her cutting edge style and genre-hopping have drawn comparisons to M.I.A or Santigold …
I wanted to make this very special shout out and DeLuna Festival recommendation to a rapper who is still one of the best new artists of new decade. A rapper who is a URB Magazine NEXT artist and a rapper who has dominated the URB Next boards. A rapper who has kept her ideals and continues to evolved year after year after year: her natural skills on the mic is addictive, her performances on stage is charming and charismatic, and her mixtapes are amazingly wicked (three volume mixture in 2011 entitled “I Stopped Caring in 96‘” – one of the best mixtapes of 2011)
She’s the always fresh, K. Flay.
She performs Sunday at DeLuna – schedule it!!
Busdriver, a prolific rapper that has only recently made a website (citing his computer cooties) has dropped a free mixtape for download at said website. This marks the Anti-Records signed rapper’s first foray into the free mixtape world. Busdriver flows over tunes from Monsters of Folk, Nosaj Thing, and Wolf Parade, to name a few. It is a cornucopia of musical genres in free mixtape form. And just in time for the holidays!
