Last month Chance the Rapper released details about his newest project, a brand new full-length album centered around his trumpet player in “The Social Experiment” band. Nico Segal aka Donnie Trumpet, is here to tell his story with Chano by his side. The album is going to be called Surf and today we get the first song “Sunday Candy”.
The song's sounds feature some impressive drums and horns as expected, with some guest vocals from Jamila Woods adding just the right edge.
This is what Nico had to say about the track: "It's my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas."

Probably the most exciting supergroup to take the electronic world by storm this year is the colossal duo Jack Ü. Fresh off their Power 106 hip-hop mix, Skrillex and Diplo have unveiled the official video for their hit single “Take Ü There” featuring the amazing Canadian singer Kiesza.
The video showcases the rowdy energy at the first live Jack Ü performances; an awesome on-stage perspective whether you were able to catch them this year or not. If there's one thing these two kings of EDM know how to do better then most, it's put on a damn good show. The other elements of the video really kick it up a notch. The layers of animation are at times extra weird, and at times funny (watch out for Skrilly's pizza toss at 3:12); but always interesting. Stream the video below. Enjoy

James Blake just revealed in an interview with The Miami Times that he will be releasing his sophomore studio album in early 2015, just a short 5 months away. He also revealed that the album is 70% complete and might even include a feature from Kanye West.
Here’s what Blake had to say about the record for Kanye: "We haven't done a great deal of work in the same room yet, but we've done a few things, kind of helped each other with our own music. In terms of the actual collaboration for this record, it looks like we should be able to get something done. I know that there's a specific song I would like him to be on, and if he can do that by the time my record comes out, that would be fantastic.”
Let’s not forget when James Blake and Chance the Rapper lived together earlier this year, which only leaves us hoping some sort of collaboration was created during that time that might make the album.
James also had this to add about experimenting with some new production techniques and feeling good about where he is at writing: "I guess I've taken a focus on the songwriting again, even more closely, and I'm dabbling in some different production techniques, things I've developed. A lot of things have changed in my life since the last record, and overall for the better, so I'm in a good place, I think. I'm in a good place to write in general, and I have been for quite a while."
James Blake will be performing the new tracks for the very first time on his upcoming American shows that are kicking off November 30th in Toronto ending in LA, You can see dates below.
