Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover aka Troy from Community is set to hit the stage Saturday at Coachella. His skill as a writer is the back bone of his music, producing some witty metaphors and stupid fun raps. I wonder if anyone who watches Community will see him on stage and trip. I can only stand so much of him at a time but that amount of time is about the length of a performance; plus he’s a natural entertainer, so his live performance will probably be solid. I wouldn’t be mad if he incorporates some of his standup material.

Rusko, the man who originally spiked the dubstep fruit punch bowl with fun, is back again with his second full length album, Songs. His first album, O.M.G! was a piece of work start to finish, introducing us to classics like “Woo Boost” and “Hold On,” during a period in which dubstep was being transformed from a purely headbanging affair to something that involved the whole body. That album was honestly tough to follow up. But in a sea of insanity with every other person throwing any combination of distorted w0bs and thunder together, I trusted cap’n Rusko to remind us what is great about bass music. And he pulled through again.

He sets it off with an intro that explains a little theory on how and why music should evolve. “Original come from the heart – whatever’s in your heart. You say you want to create a different sound, you create that different sound. Who is anyone to say there’s any boundaries? … Takin’ it from that school, and building it up to a different dimension.” True words. That jumps straight into the anthem that’s already been lighting up dance floors and faces, “Somebody to Love.” That track is 24k gold. “Skanker” is the first of 5 reggae influenced songs (“Love No More,” “Be Free,” “Roll Da Beats” and “Mek More Green”) that bring the sound back to its dub roots and simultaneously brings the album to the next level IMO. It just works too perfectly together. There’s a couple headbangers (“Opium,” “M357”), and a couple high energy tracks (“Pressure,” “Whistle Crew”) to round it out. If you had the attention span, I would go into detail on every track. But it’s time to just listen. Thrown together, it’s a complete, awesome album. This is meant to be enjoyed by some body of water, sippin’ on a beer with a slice of citrus and shmokin’ on a ground up gram of the finest.

Purchase

Catch him in SD @ 4th & B on 5/31 (Tickets), and LA @ The Palladium 6/1 (Tickets).

18 year old Belgian whiz kid Eptic released his Like a Boss EP on Monday. 4 tracks of upbeat, jump around and lose your head brand of dubstep that Rusko and others brought to the scene. His production is a nice mix of gritty sounds with plenty of rhythm. I’m hoping/expecting “Oh Snap” to be worked into a lot of sets this summer. If you’re into 12th Planet, Doctor P, Flux, etc. you’ll probably enjoy this. He also threw together a pretty fuckin awesome mix for Never Say Die Records that you should definitely grab. Who would you get in a fight, Eptic’s little robot or Feed Me?

Tracklist

1. Like a Boss
2. Fast Forward
3. Oh Snap
4. Death Ray

I’ve found myself drawn to the calmer spectrum of dubstep lately, enjoying the beats side more than the liquidizing of jaw bones and other facial features. Maybe I’m maturing or something. Maybe the recent affinity for jameson on the rocks is artificially inflating the perception of my maturity. In any case, I haven’t been able to stop listening to Draper the past few weeks. His 4 track self-titled EP is filled with delightful synths, ambient sounds, and glitchy samples with solid drum work. He pretty accurately describes it as “liquidstep” and also posts up a lot of other good artists on his facebook on the reg. Pretty rad.

If you were into the Joey Bada$$ tracks I posted last week here’s some more from him & Capital Steez I dug up via their YouTube/Progressive Era mixtape. Just been playing these dudes on repeat, shit is so nice. The buzz is gonna come soon, they got some real talent. Even got some love from Mac a couple days ago. Hit the jump for all of it.

A handful of solid new tracks this week. Another good track from Ab-Soul who keeps consistently putting out good music of substance. Couple from Mac Miller, one featuring Diggy Simmons who just confused me with that verse. Male Nikki? I don’t understand. Fashawn hooked up with Wiz Khalifa and made a solid crusin jam. Still waiting on Wiz to spit an original thought. Cormega, Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, Saigon teamed up to create the super group M.A.R.S…. the first track getting me excited for things to come, just bars. Bronsolino’s gonna have a great year. And J. Cole also hooked it up with an unreleased song too. Good ass week. Here’s to a better one next week.

Ab-Soul – Showin Love
Mac Miller ft. Diggy Simmons – Definition of Cool
Mac Miller – Loud
Wiz Khalifa – Money (ft. Fashawn)
Cormega, Action Bronson, Ron Marciano, Saigon (M.A.R.S.) – MARS
J. Cole – Visionz of Home

Brooklyn’s Joey Bada$$ just released “Waves” off his upcoming 1999 tape. Dude is only 17 but you would never guess. Always refreshing to hear someone who can spit with something of value to express (ATTN dime a dozen rappers: we no longer care about your come up stories). I got stuck after “They say hard work pays off/Well tell the Based God don’t quit his day job.” There’s something about the rhythm of NY rap that no one else can fxck with IMO. Don’t sleep on the kid. Look out for 1999 next month.

| Like I told you, I know nxggas who trash rappin/Worried bout the trending fashion rather than descending passion |

Joey Bada$$ – Waves
Joey Bada$$ x Jay Steez – Survival Tactics
Joey Bada$$ – Blooming Blossoms (Flowers pt. 1)
