Stream tracks from Killer Mike's nu classic - R.A.P. Music

K.Raydio, "The Way It Goes"

Max B x Isaiah Toothtaker (x Mishka), "Champion Cuffer" (NSFW)

I was introduced to Isaiah Toothtaker at the Triple Rock during a surprise P.O.S. show. His live performance made me a fan... and his connects to Mishka doesn't hurt either.

A. Wolf and Her Claws, "Zero to 60" live in The Current studio

From The Current's David Campbell:
Aby Wolf was chosen to partake in the Cedar Cultural Center's 416 Club Commission in 2011 and received a grant to explore a new electro-art-pop project that had been stewing in her mind. Recruiting the talents of Jesse Whitney, Linnea Mohn and Joey Van Phillips, Wolf created A. Wolf and Her Claws. Instead of a one-off performance as originally planned for the Cedar's winter season, a full-fledged band has been formed and there are no signs of slowing the momentum.

A. Wolf and Her Claws are performing this Saturday, April 21st at The Cedar Cultural Center.

Thavius Beck - Symphony of the Spheres

I discovered Thavius Beck and his excellent The Heavens Bleed Sunshine through Plug Research's e-mail blasts.  The Heavens is one of my favorite albums of 2012 so far, instrumental or otherwise.  So when I heard that he had a new project out as a free download I devoured it immediately.  This didn't blow me away like The Heavens did, but is still an excellent listen and worthy of your digital music library.

FKi, Iggy Azalea & Diplo, "I Think She Ready"

"The music video premiere of ‘I Think She Ready’ featuring FKi, newly-signed Interscope rapper Iggy Azalea and Grammy-nominated Diplo debuts exclusively on SSENSE. The video was shot and produced in LA by founder of What You Steal, Alex 2Tone, whose previous video credits include Iggy Azalea’s “My World” and work with Dizzee Rascal and Danny Brown. The video was styled entirely by SSENSE, where you can shop Iggy’s, FKi’s and Diplo’s looks using interactive hotspot technology from wireWAX – every item featured is available to purchase directly through the video."

Pretty brilliant if you ask me... oh, and the song goes hard too.
