[New Video!] Rye Rye | “Boom Boom”

Long-time M.I.A. protege, Rye Rye, has dropped what seems to be her first try at a “pop” track. Rye Rye typically serves up hip hop with some world music flavor (much like M.I.A., surprise surprise), but on “Boom Boom,” she takes those elements and adds a pop-soaked chorus. While the song may add more cheese than what Rye Rye usually drops, the video is, for lack of a better phrase, friggin’ awesome!

The video is heavily influenced by old-school video games like Street Fighter and Mega Man, but throws in an insane amount of random colors and objects (like breakdance-fighting and rainbow-colored mushrooms). At one point, Rye Rye is riding a purple dolphin that shoots LASERS at Rye Rye doppelgangers.

It’s 90% nuts, and 100% awesome.

For fans of: M.I.A., Santigold, Nicki Minaj

Santigold feat. Karen O | “Go”

Finally, Santigold is giving us some new friggin’ music. It’s been almost 3 years since she released her self-titled debut album. “Go” is what you’ve come to expect from Santigold, some M.I.A.-strange, yet dancey, music, and she even brought the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O along.

[New Release] Beatards | “Fuck A Label” Mixtape

fuckalabel_front

 

Brookyln’s party masters, The Beatards, return with their “Fuck A Label” mixtape. It’s got new and remixed Beatards tracks, and a bunch of Beatards remixes of tracks from artists like M.I.A., LMFAO, Yeasayer, and Shakira & Kid Cudi.

Using The Pixies‘ “Where Is My Mind” as a sample turns out to be totally kick ass, so bump that shizzie!
