To see rapper Logic go from being online hype, sponsored by Thissongissick for every mixtape, to having one of the most succesful hip-hop albums of the year is nothing short of incredible.
Today marks another check off the bucket list, as Logic continues his late night streak following up his visit to Jimmy Fallon with an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The artist will be a guest on the show Tuesday evening, but to make things even more unique and special, Logic will also perform at Jimmy's outdoor stage that will be broadcasted on TV. Artists bring in their own LA fanbase when playing at this stage, so to have someone like Logic play there is pretty insane, and we have full confidence there will be a line around the corner of those who won't make it in. Congratulations Logic, we could'nt be more excited to be apart of the ride!!
Check back for a recap of Logic's performance and if you live in LA and want to attend the event you can grab free tickets here.
GRiZ who is one of the pioneers of the electro-soul and future funk sounds, along with artists like Pretty Lights and Gramatik, yet has managed to carve his own lane in the genre. The always impressive artist announced his own record label 2 years ago with the release of his most recent album Rebel Era which was put out as a free download as well as being on iTunes. Today, the artist is announcing a new chapter in his career with the closing of Liberated Music and the launch of All Good Records. This label, while still carrying out releases being freely available, is also a step in the direction of a full service record label as opposed to just an avenue for Grant (Griz) to distribute his own work. The label has two signed artists, mid west live funk duo The Floozies and Chicago based soul star and TSIS regular Manic Focus.
You can now follow the new All Good Records on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, but you should also visit the freshly launched website www.AllGoodRecords.com where you can hear a preview of a new GRiZ song which we can expect to see on his upcoming album Say It Loud that is dropping soon.
Also to celebrate the launch, we have the latest single from the newly reformed labels' first release, The Floozies upcoming album Do Your Thing which will be released Jan 27th. We premiered "FNKTRP" and "Fantastic Love" from the group and now have an exclusive first listen of the song "She Ain't Yo Girlfriend" which captures the signature funky Floozies sound, yet is delivered in an extra sensual manner. The vocorded vocals and the fast paced plucks only help complete the future funk classic. Listen to the premiere of the song and don't miss an exclusive free download. Enjoy!

Pegboard Nerds – Who The F*ck Is Paul McCartney!? (Ft. Kanye West & Jennifer Lawrence) [Free Download]Posted in Bangin, Premieres by nick | Tags: Free Download, Jennifer Lawrence, kanye west, Mashup, Pegboard Nerds, Remix
Last week when Beatles frontman Paul McCartney was featured on the latest Kanye West single "Only One", the internet erupted in a series of painfully sad tweets not knowing "Who The F*ck Is Paul McCartney", which has inspired DJ duo Pegboard Nerds for their latest track featuring that exact name.
Pegboard have brought in some Kanye sound bytes from his BBC interview along with verses from his track "Diamonds In Sierre Leone". They also brought in another internet buzz-story celebrity, Jennifer Lawrence and used vocals from her top 40 single from the Hunger Games soundtrack, which happened to be released just weeks after her nudes leaked online.
Soak in the strangess of the internet in this new electro heater with some trap elements, further displaying the style that Pegboard continues to carve. Enjoy!

The vocals shine bright as they are chopped to perfection mixed with a thumping bass groove and piano line that will have you moving.

Childish Gambino is an artist who does not take his music videos lightly, delivering basically short films for almost every release like “Sweatpants” or “Telegraph Ave” among others. Today we get the latest from the rapper / singer / actor for one of his most recent songs “Sober” off the Kauai EP. He brings the song to life singing to a girl waiting for her take-out food. It borders the line of cheesy and comedy featuring some outrageous dance moves from Gambino. The setting also reminds us of the diner in the ‘Sweatpants’ music video, making us wonder if that was Donald’s intention for connecting his videos. Enjoy!
