Greg Hvnsen — Don’t Go

We stood on the corner of Little West 12th and Washington that day. Right after a night at a rooftop right across the street. The entire night I knew that this would be the last time I saw her. I knew that we could not be friends because I would always want more. I knew that […]

ZHU — Faded

When I look back at the best moments of my life they are mostly those nights that seemed as if they could never end. Nights filled with taxi rides, bright city lights, dancing, bar-hopping, making-out, late-night snacks, more drinking, more dancing, more making out, and a LOT of music going every single second of the […]

Fabolous — Pachangas

La Marina was mine way before Fabolous, Jay & Bey, or Leo DiCaprio had an inkling of what it would be, but then again, many places from LES to Dyckman have been that way. Actually, many places from East Williamsburg (Bushwick) all the way over to the West Coast have been that way in my […]

Et Musique Pour Tous Presents: Les Auteurs — Cyrus Pavel

But you know this already, my hood the coldest and deadlySoldiers is ready, I am boastful, forgive me”—NAS My play list represents “perspective“. Lately, some of you have been deeming us:—“Music Elitists“. Now, let me tell you why it really doesn’t bother us when you YELL it our way: New York City, a.k.a., the “Melting Pot“,  is the […]

EXROYALE — Give It Up (Ra Ra Riot Remix)

As the Space Age kicks in and companies are beginning to use robots to do just about anything, we have to ask ourselves why we haven’t innovated in certain areas much faster. Hollywood feeds us the same shit over and over in different form with different actors. (see: Batman, Superman, Spiderman..) It’s as if creatively we have […]

Jack Garratt — Worry

  My nights are broken up by the sounds of women I’ll never meet“ Not too many months ago one of the greater loves of my life and I stopped communicating. This is the first time I am telling anyone about it because I wasn’t really sure if I was supposed to tell anyone. Throughout […]

Phonat — Never (Icarus Remix)

A few days ago I met with a friend for the third day in a row who is going through a breakup. A few days ago this friend mentioned to me that the last two days before that, were the best two days she’s had in some time. Time is a blind manAnd he never […]

Fabolous — Thim Slick (Instrumental)

This instrumental is from Fabolous‘s late 2013 mixtape: The S.O.U.L. Tape 3. It contains several samples and a great amount of groove, smoothness and chilled-out instrumentation. Tuesdays, for me, are the day of the week that I find myself with the least to do. I guess that’s because Mondays are full of top-of-the-week meetings all […]

Vic Mensa — Down On My Luck

At first listen, Down On My Luck by Hip Hop recording artist Vic Mensa takes me back to Hollywood. Being a native New Yorker my life has always been full of fast-paced hustling and bustling no matter where I go. A few years ago I took that attitude and energy to California and had the […]

Young Thug — The Blanguage

Metro boomin’ want some more nigga” I never know what Young Thug is saying until I head on over to Rap Genius and read… and even then I’m not sure that I get it. But, sometimes music is our guilty pleasure simply because it’s happening on its own, in the background. Sometimes we don’t need […]
