Cromeo band member Dave once taught Ezra’s girlfriend French at Columbia. Now they are collaborating together with this dance-floor ready song. The track is a bonus song for anyone who buys Cromeo’s new album, Business Casual, on iTunes. The song is great and it is better knowing that they first met when Ezra was just a student attending Colombia. Stream and download below (via We All Want Someone).
It’s rare to find young artists with originality. At a young age like 16 most artists are still trying to find their niche. NicX is one an exception. Any kid can rap over a generic beat that everyone else has rapped over like “Lemonade” or “I Wanna Rock”, but NicX chose to use the beat from a leaked Kanye West reference song “I’m So Appalled”. The originality of the beat choice is what first turned me on to NicX, but his verses on his song “Physco Therapy” is what kept me interested. The song is a conversation between two personalities, of a possibly mentally unstable NicX, something unique and ambitious that I definitely did not expect from a 16 year old. Look out for NicX’s mixtape The UnExpected Gift which is set to be released this Christmas. Stream and download “Physco Therapy” below…
For the Morning Bender’s echomix2 they pulled together many songs, of all genres, and even put in a fantastic cover of Paul McCartney’s Ram On. The cover changes things with an R & B beat that gives the song a completely new atmosphere. The cover is short, clocking in at only 1:26 but is a good listen. Stream below.
