New Single Tiësto “Wasted.” If there’s one thing Im sure of about Tiësto, its that he knows how to crank out the bangers. Despite the very basic title, this track has a few interesting twists and turns that you’ll definitely enjoy, even when you aren’t wasted.

J. Cole to celebrate 5 year anniversary of his mixtape "The Warm Up" with Summer Tour.

"The Warm Up," according to J.Cole himself, is what really caught Jay-Z’s attention and subsequently landed him a record deal on Roc Nation. No dates have been announced yet, but Cole is planning a summer tour on which he will be performing all 22 tracks on the mix tapes.

New Single Preview: Phillip Phillips. “Fly.” Contrary to the soulful folk single, “Raging Fire,” “Fly” is a straight up rock tune, with old school western underpinnings. You can hear both on Phillips’ album Behind the Light to be released May 19, 2014.

"Out of Line" Gesaffelstein. One of the reasons Gesaffelstein is so great is his version of electronic music defies definition. It sounds like he went into an industrial factory with an expensive mic and just sampled everything he could. Every song has an eerie resonance to it like you’re in a futuristic horror flick.

"Water No Get Enemy," Fela Kuti. It’s pretty much the undisputed truth that Fela is the master of afrobeat. I love this music because of the incredibly long songs that show off just how talented each member of the band is. The horns, keys, guitar, rhythm, everything just works. Trust me, eleven minutes flies by.

"Switch Blade," Ellington, Mingus, Roach. One thing I love about jazz is that supergroups are so common. All the great Jazz legends have played with each other at some point, and without all (or at least less) of the bullshit in the music industry today, it wasn’t that difficult. This whole album has a feeling of fun and experimentation that only happens when friends come together to have a good time playing music.

"Raja Haje" The Budos Band. An instrumental afrobeat revival group with a refreshing splash of hip hop. If any of you are familiar with the song "Ivory and Blue" by the Menahan Street Band, you will hear an inherent similarity in this song, and it won’t surprise you at all that MSB retains several members from the Budos Band.
