Video: Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE - Need You

This song is fire! Dillon and NGHTMRE have been teasing it at their latest set and finally we have the full version and a hilarious video to go along with it. The pairing of Francis and NGHTMRE are absolutely perfect, moombah and grime and trap with a filthy drop. The video is kinda long and it takes about 2 minutes till the actual music starts but it's a hilarious story of Dillon DJ's a suburban backyard party for a bunch of middle aged adults. So good all around.

Alicia Keys - In Common

New Alicia!!! It was 2012 since Mrs. Swizz Beats last released her own album, she's had a couple features here and there but she's been relatively quiet for awhile. Alicia debuted "In Common" on last weekend's SNL. More and more we hear more of the Dancehall infusion in to pop and mainstream, "In Common" follows that tropical vibe. A little different from what we are used to hearing, doesn't showcase her voice too much, she's in a falsetto for most of the song, and not much piano, but the song is fire! New song and a new album has been confirmed for later this year. What do you think?

Justin Timberlake - Can't Stop the Feeling

"The 20/20 Experience" was meh. After dropping "Justified" and "Future Sex/Love Sounds" which were absolute classics from beginning to end, his last 2 albums or complete set was a let down for how long we went without music from the King. I felt that music evolved since Justin took his musical hiatus; I love Timbaland to death, but I felt his beats didn't evolve as well. Now I heard JT is working on a new album and got me all gitty inside again. "Can't Stop the Feeling" kinda is a let down though, I understand it's a soundtrack song for a kids movie, but it's has that "Take Back the Night" feel, kinda early 90's feel good pop. I like the song, but I just have higher expectations for his music. Hopefully we get that new album sooner than later.

Video: Zayn - BeFoUr

Okay Zayn!  The One Direction outcast makes some fire music, just listened to the entire album and it's dope! Zayn pairs the release of his debut solo album "Mind of Mine" with a video of another the B side "BeFoUr". A lot more uptempo than "Pillowtalk", has a nice melodic groove to it. The video looks like it's a sneak peek into an average day and night of the Englishman, probably before fame. 

Video: Future - Low Life ft. The Weeknd

This is my jam! The video though, I have no idea what's going on, it's like a post apocalyptic future. They are in an abandoned warehouse and there's a hot girl roaming around, and everyone's driving Mad Max cars. I will probably never watch this video again and waste 5 minutes of my life, but the song is so dope that it doesn't even matter.

Hundred Waters - Show Me Love (Skrillex Remix) ft. Chance The Rapper

This song is so dope. Never heard the original or the band Hundred Waters, but the Skrillex rework and Chance feature got me to listen instantly. Hundred Waters is an Indie Folk band from the University of Florida that somehow ended up signing with Skrillex's OWSLA label. An unexpected pairing with the predominantly electric heavy acts but good music is good music. Can't wait to hear more.

Video: Valentino Khan - Deep Down Low

Finally the biggest song of last summer has a video. Valentino Khan's "Deep Down Low" smashed every festival last season. It was actually the #1 played song by DJ's last year. This video is disturbing to say the least, lol, it's like a car crash you have to watch. Also Skrillex makes a brief appearance, see if you can find him if you can make it through the entire video.
