R Kelly- Untitled

Nothing like a new Kells album to share with the kiddies over Thanksgiving weekend. This man is still doing what he does best and even lets us know on "Like I Do" - "there's only 2 things in this world that I'm the best at. Number one is music and baby girlll number two, can't nobody work ya body out like I dooo, like I dooo."

"Pregnant" is a jam, with Kelly, Tyrese, Robin Thicke and The Dream all crooning about how they want to impregnate the listener. And "Go Low," well I bet you can guess what that one's about.

Pregnant feat Tyrese, Robin Thicke and The Dream

Jonathan Boulet

Fresh from signing to Modular, Jonathan Boulet releases one of the best songs of the year. Like the track, the video is simple yet gripping.

Big ups to Sean for putting me onto this guy, looking forward to his album release next month.

Chauffeur is a super group comprised of Theophilus London, Sam Sparro and Mark Ronson. This track below, which is a freakin jam, is the only one I could find by them, but they did perform last week for the first time in NYC and their set included a cover of Sheila E's "The Glamorous Life." (!!)

Chauffeur- Soles Of Fire

Apparently this colab has something to do with the release of Ronson's shoe line with Gucci. Check out the kicks below, perfect for the "urban-boater."

Fenech Soler - Lies

For fans of Friendly Fires and such.

Fenech Soler - Lies

Chiddy Bang - The Swelly Express

I thought these dudes broke up, but they just released a new mixtape last week, so who knows. Either way they are back and up to their old tricks- chopping up indie rock songs into hip hop beats. (I especially enjoy the Sufjan Steven sample on All Things Go).

Cinnamon Chasers Minimix Summer 2009

I wouldn't expect anything less from these guys to top off Summer 2009.

Their album A Million Miles From Home is one of my favorites this year, it is such a refreshing change of pace from all the dirty electro crap out there right now.

Evan Voytas

I will let other writers speak on my behalf on this one, I am too busy bobbing my head to this guy's music.

"After spending time in New York City, the deserts of New Mexico, a farmhouse in rural Pennsylvania, and a tour bus constantly surrounded by teenage girls, Evan Voytas is presently in Los Angeles. With influences ranging from underground hip hop to classic sunshine pop, Voytas dresses like your grandpa and sounds like the future." - Myspace Page

"Don’t sleep on him any longer, if this kid continues to write songs as good as “I Live This Life Here For You”, he could become our American version of M83." - In Flight At Night

"If you're not listening to Evan Voytas, you're seriously missing out... and I'm not just saying that. You're missing out on an art form here." - Circles of Concrete

Getting Higher


I Live This Life Here For You

We'd Be Good Together
