Shwayze was one of first rappers to really carved that acoustic summer hip-hop vibe with his past work with Singer Cisco Adler for songs like “Buzzin” and “Corana and Lime”. He made a more projects with Cisco over the past few years and has recently been working on his first solo project called Shwayzed and Confused. It captures that initial laid back summer vibe, mixed with a newer matured timeless twist. He lets us premiere an video album stream featuring short clips of each track on the album. To go along with the release he captured shots of his home city of Malibu, California. We’ll keep you posted on the release of his new album, for now enjoy!

I’m excited to announce that Thissongissick is going to be teaming up with rapper Shwayze to bring Shwaysted Fridays. Providing a fresh new monthly electronic event with an added dose of hip hop to mix things up. The next one is happening Friday, January 13th in Malibu at the Malibu Inn. The lineup has Shwayze & Cisco Adler, The Cataracs, my Dj project Sorry for Partying, and local DJ G-Nash. The capacity is only 450, and tickets have been flying already, so don’t miss out! Can’t wait for this party, hope to see you all there!
I’m also excited to bring you the premiere of the first track from the new project W.E.E.D., featuring rapper Shwayze, singer Mark Rosas, and a special guest I can’t tell you who it is yet (see if you can guess). The song was used in the video for the event above, but here’s the full track. The project has a very cool dubstep fueled hip hop party vibe that sounds pretty sick. It starts off a little on the chiller side, then it when it drops and both rappers spit their verses. The crunchy bass filled dubstep drops continue throughout the track, giving a sick unique feel. We’re proud to be sponsoring the EP the project has got coming out January 13th, for free, here. I love tracks that blend genres diving into the electronic world, and this one does it well. Enjoy!

Radical Something – Freedom (Music Video) (Official Release) : New Chill Acoustic Hip Hop Song + VideoPosted in Chill, Video by nick | Tags: Acoustic, Alternative, California, Chill, Hip-Hop, Laid Back, Radical Something, Summer
Here’s the official release fror the music for ‘Freedom’ off of Radical Something’s We Are Nothing. It follows there California themed laid back acoustic powered vibe they have established well, but with a darker tone. It’s got a Black and White theme all the way throughout, and it’s one of less cheerfull tracks on the album, so it makes sense. Both Josh and Loggy do a great job on this track. Enjoy!
