Newly formed British producer duo Diskord is working to push bass music to new places.

The song starts with an electrifying snare build with pitched up vocals providing the "Tell Me Why" sample, setting the background for some powerful drops keeping you guessing till the end.

Logic, a rapper we have been featuring, sponsoring, premiering, and generally loving for the past few years, has released his debut album today. From his first mixtape, through his rise that has lead to today's release our admiration has only grown. We started by sponsoring his breakout mixtape Young Sinatra, followed up by both the Young Sinatra: Undeniable and Young Sinatra: Welcome To Forever mixtapes all supported up by matching sold out tours. Next, we broke the news of his major label signing with the iconic Def Jam Recordings, which was followed by the acclaimed While You Wait EP to keeping everyone happy with new material.
This has all paved the way for today's debut full-length studio album Under Pressure. Production on the album spans from 6ix, DJ Dahi, Dun Deal, M-Phazes, Rob Knox, S1,Tae Beast, to Logic himself. The entire album is executively produced by hip-hop icon No-ID who is known for his work with Kanye West and Jay-Z among countless others.
Thanks to his amazing team, Visionary Music Group, the entire full length deluxe version of the album is now available to stream in full via Soundcloud. The deluxe version spans 15 tracks, featuring verses solely from Logic (aside from two "Alright" ft. Big Sean and "Driving Ms. Daisy" ft. Childish Gambino). The album is an unbelievable listen from beginning to end and is without a doubt his best work to date. The tracks range from the signature relentless verses to the lyricist exploring new territories including singing on tracks like "Buried Alive". We strongly encourage you to pick up your copy of either the regular or deluxe version as both are available physically and everywhere online.

Childish Gambino can't seem to stay off our radar for more than a few days following his insanely successful joint mixtape and EP release with STN MTN / Kauai and a movie quality music video for the hit "Telegraph Ave". Now he is featured on a brand new song. New York duo LION BABE have just released a new anthem "Jump Hi" packing a funky upbeat and soulful punch. It is the perfect soundtrack for Gambino to come in and deliver a fearless verse giving the track an exciting twist and somewhat stealing the spotlight. Listen to the song and be on the lookout for details on an official iTunes release or free download. Enjoy!

Chance the Rapper continues to be one of the most exciting new voices in hip-hop while managing to stay completely independent. The lack of a major label has not prevented the flow of music, as we've seen a series of free singles released alongside his band The Social Experiment in the past few months like the Wonder Everyday (Arthur Theme), No Better Blues and I Am Very Very Lonely among others. So it did not come as a huge surprise, when Chance revealed in a recent Billboard article that he has been working on quite a bit of new music – a few albums worth of material – and we can expect the first one by the end of the year.
The first album will be called Surf and highlights The Social Experiment band member Nico Segal aka Donnie Trumpet, a versatile musician and trumpet player of the group. To make things even better this album will be available completely for free and we can expect it before the end of the year, leaving us feeling like the holidays are coming early!
Surf is the first project since Acid Rap that Chance is heavily involved in, and we can only imagine that it will be some of his strongest work to date. Furthermore, the rapper went on to reveal some of the collaborations he has the in works mentioning the likes of Migos, J. Cole, Frank Ocean, Emily Kang and even some guidance from Rick Rubin.
We will keep you posted as more info rolls in on Surf.
Here's his collaboration with James Blake on the "Round Here Remix" that is such a hit
