Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole have both been teasing a future collaborative project for years now, and have left their respecitve fanbases impatiently awaiting any official confirmation or release date, or anything. Now we have reason to hope this album is coming sooner than we imagined.
Further increasing the hype of their collaborative album, J Cole has just released a track titled “Black Friday” rapping over Kendrick’s hit “Alright” while Kendrick also released a new track “Black Friday” rapping over J Cole’s “ A Tale of 2 Citiez.” Kendrick takes a step back from the jazz style we heard on his 2015 album To Pimp A Butterfly and hits home with some impressive bars only Kdot can deliver while J Cole offers his always on-point verses. Now that these two artists are riding the wave of success following their critically acclaimed albums we hope they have time to work on their joint project we’ve all been waiting for.

British Duo Bondax recently ended their silence with the release of “Temptation” featuring rising singer Erik Hassle as their first release in nearly a year. Now we are pleasantly surprised with more new material from the infectious duo.
Now they’ve taken on English indie/rock band Foals’ “Give It All,” transforming the song into a sexy, feel-good house track that will surely brighten your day. Bondax has a knack for creating some of the smoothest, funky melodies out there and this new remix is no exception as their layered instrumentation brings their nu-disco and house aesthetics leaving you wanting more. They bring a more uptempo beat in their signature indie house sound uplifting the original to a new, pleasant sound that has us hoping for more new releases from these guys soon. Stream below and enjoy.

TWONK general Brillz teams up with London producer LAXX for a release that's been burning through festival and club crowds thanks to play out from Flux Pavilion, Snails, Bro Safari among others.
"Destruktion" is fairly true to title! The foundation is kitted out with an absurd amount of twonky electro synths, rattling snare snaps, and punchy bass kicks. The countdown leading to both drops are a bass heads fantasy and could level ones ear drums if played at high volume.
Stream the exclusive premiere below and you can grab this release on LAXX's brand new TWITCH Pt. 2 EP dropping Monday, November 30th via Never Say Die Records. Enjoy

As a black Friday treat, we’ve received the much anticipated release of Erykah Badu’s new mixtape But You Caint Use My Phone. This legendary soul singer has mostly remained quiet since her last major release back in 2010.
Erykah surprised everyone with an unexpected feature from none other than Outkast’s Andre 3000 on "Hello," who is also the father of her child. Besides "Hello" Erykah has remained incredibly elusive with her lack of new releases. In addition to getting Andre involved, Erykah did a remix of Drake’s “Hotline Bling” titled “Cel U Lar Device” and actually welcomed Drake into the studio to work alongside her.
The 11-track album is a pleasant and relaxing listen from start to finish as she blends her soulful vocals with hip-hop instrumentation and psychedelic soundscapes for a sound that Erykah dubs as “TRap & B.” Her mixtape is currently available to stream on iTunes music until 12/4 where it will become available via other outlets. Stream the project below via Datpiff and enjoy.
