InfeRed … HEAVY

InfeRed - HEAVY artwork
InfeRed utilizes the Just Blaze produced track, Exhibit C by Jay Electronica to showcase how HEAVY he really gets. Indianapolis MC, InfeRed, has been likened to Lupe Fiasco, Elzhi, and Black Thought.
HEAVY is a sort of series of quick twitches of his lyrical muscles, flexing the kind brawn he shows on an average day.

InfeRed – HEAVY (Bandcamp listen/download)
InfeRed – HEAVY (Soundcloud listen/download)
HEAVY is the second song (previous: Dracula’s Reflection) from InfeRed’s song-a-week series until his forthcoming 2010 mixtape titled EARS OPEN is completely released. Each song features a unique piece of artwork inspired by the track.

The official HEAVY single artwork and 3 shots of InfeRed are attached.

InfeRed – Dracula’s Reflection

InfeRed – Dracula’s Reflection (Soundcloud)

InfeRed – Dracula’s Reflection (Bandcamp)

A track produced primarily by InfeRed, Dracula’s Reflection builds on an eerily vibrant MGMT sample (Future Reflections) and combines with a darkly introspective narrative. Indianapolis MC, InfeRed, has been likened to Lupe Fiasco, Black Thought, and recently Wale.

From InfeRed’s forthcoming 2010 mixtape titled Ears Open, Dracula’s Reflection is not a club track. It is an emotive and tonal experience, a sonic answer to the melancholic and beautiful transition of fall into winter.

InfeRed’s newest anthem, Dracula’s Reflection, features a thumping rhythm with staggered verses building towards a smoky, self-reflective plateau. Listen close; this song is an epic listening experience well worth your time.

Broken Bells…James Mercer x Danger Mouse

I’m so excited about this…super collab between James Mercer (from The Shins) and Danger Mouse (from Gnarls Barkley and producer of The Grey Album). This is seriously one of the greatest combinations i’ve dreamed would never happen. The album is due to come out March 9, 2010. Be ready for a storm.

Here’s the first single “The High Road” (download after the jump)…

Peace, and broken love…

colin munroe…interview | performance | download

This is an interview touching on why he (as a white canadian dude) is embraced by the Hip Hop community, is a clear part of the new [urban folk™] (haha) movement (like KiD CuDi, Wale, Drake, Slaughterhouse…etc.), and has a successful alternative mixtape.

I just want to say it first here and now…in the next few years, you will see the mixtape (free ep, free album, samples/remixing other peoples songs projects) embraced by other musics not centralized to Hip Hop!! Watch.

If you don’t know about Colin Munroe you definitely need to download his mixtape…
Colin Munroe is the Unsung Hero mixtape (2008)
It features Drake, Wale, Black Milk, Mickey Factz, even Bob Dylan (remix…it’s INCREDIBLE!!!)

He’s on my “what to look for” list.

Peace, and embrace new love.


Jay Electronica…Exhibit C

this is definitely in my top 3 freshest hip hop songs of 09. a video of Jay performing it live with Mos Def and Diddy and the song on youtube if you haven’t heard it, after the jump.
