You can stream ‘Serpent of Old’ below and grab the track via OWSLA now! Enjoy
As we approach the highly anticipated for up and coming producer Mat Zo debut album Damage Control, we have an exclusive premiere of a new single “Time On Your Side” featuring vocals from singer Janai. We actually had a chance to get some back story for an upcoming interview with Mat Zo running next Monday. The song started out as a “Hip-Hoppy R&B Beat” and then after having Janai record vocals, Mat wasn’t happy with how the vocals were sitting with the track and went through the effort of completely remaking the song into what he refers to as a ”Kind of 90′s Poppy Song”. The vocals and melody are more then catchy, with an unexpected breakdown to set it off. This further shows how diverse the producing spectrum runs for Mat Zo.
Make sure to look out for our interview with Mat Zo running tomorrow, Friday as well as the full debut album Damage Control available Tuesday.

Kanye defends public fight with Jimmy Kimmel on his show and gives incredible interview [FULL VIDEO INTERVIEW]Posted in Chill, Interview, News, Uncategorized, Video by nick | Tags: abc, Interview, Jimmy Kimmel, kanye west, Live Video
The recent controversy between Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel was squashed last evening as Kanye made a special lengthy appearance on Jimmy’s show last night. He dives into very real subjects, going in depth explaining some of the outrageous statements that derived from his must see multiple hour interview with Zane Lowe at BBC in the UK, that saw lots of media backlash. The site has always been pretty supportive for Kanye regardless of some of the things he’s done in public, and this interview I truly feel more then any other piece of media around Kanye will let you see him in a far more understanding light.
In the sea of rappers and generally most musicians, Kanye is actually trying to change the standards of so many things. Besides music and fashion Kanye strives to push the idea of being creative, and believing in yourself in such a unique way that hopefully you can understand a little bit more after this interview.
Watch the full 6 part interview below. Think Kanye was outrageous? Or still is just as wild? Comment below.

Cashmere Cat: Incredible Down Tempo Smooth Electronic Producer from Norway – “Aurora” + “Fallin Love (Cashmere Cat Remix)”Posted in Uncategorized by nick | Tags: Cashmere Cat, Down tempo, Electronic, Fresh, Smooth, Trap Music
Today I’d like to get you all more properly acquainted with Cashmere Cat. His name is August and he is an incredible producer and DJ from Norway who makes some amazing down tempo smooth electronic music fueled by his signature powerful drum. I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live this past week at SXSW in Austin and was absolutely blown away. This first track is his remix to BenZel’s “Falling In Love”. The percussion is to clean and on point adding the perfect background for him to do some unreal vocal sampling that is unbelievably easy to listen to.
The Cat manages to carry out a certain airy freshness to every single one of his productions coming off extra light. Next up is his recent single “Aurora” that recently got released on a Feathers compiliaton. He uses some interesting insutrments and knocks you in the face with his drums. Turn these up, start growing in love if you haven’t already with Cashmere Cat. Enjoy!
