It’s going to hit 27/80 degrees here in MTL today which surpasses the area of “unseasonable” to land in the vaunted realm of “holy fuck, that’s insane” so I’ll make this quick. If you’re in need of free musical sustenance of the mixed variety, I highly recommend Skilliam & Elijah’s recent contribution to FACT’s on going series. Of course, you’ve got many other options and I would begrudge you for none of them, but this collection of Grime instrumentals and vocal tracks really hits the spot, landing between synth-colored futurism and ‘ardcore rapping that’s perfect for a “Do the Right Thing” style heatwave. Cold Beer not included.
And while we’re on the subject of FACT, I’d like to continue our site’s long standing tradition of bashing mainstream rappers and then praising the underground super-producers that redeem their vocals by refering you to the Joy Orbison/Young Money mash up that they’re hosting. It is inspired.
