Little behind on this one, but what can you do. Major Lazer is the collaborative musical project from DJ/Producers Diplo and Switch. They teamed up with Amber Coffman of Dirty Projectors on this extremely mellow and catchy tune. While this isn’t going to be a track you’re going to have blasting at parties, it’s something you’re definitely going to want to relax to. When I first heard this song, my first thought was that the production was perfect for Frank Ocean. Not hating on Amber Coffman at all, I actually think her vocals are really smooth, but I can just imagine Frank having all the ladies swoon over this.
Asher Paul Roth is back in full force. While getting ready for the release for his sophomore effort “ Is This Too Orange”, due out this fall, he let this jam loose. On “Party Girl”, Asher teams up with Maybach Music Group’s Meek Mill. This summer-time tune features producer Oren Yoel using a creative Eddie Murphy “Party All The Time” sample (original below). Asher provides his signature flair that made him one of the house-hold names in music, while Meek hits you with a smooth delivery and clever lyricism. Will “Party Girl” become one of the steady jams of the summer?
Also, according to Miss Info, “I heard an alternate version that will be coming out soon with a very special guest. (A guy who has seen more than his share of girls partying hardily)” Who could it be? Take a few guesses in the comment section. This track will be available on iTunes tomorrow!
My man Meddafore aka Mr.LetEmKnow (click!) always brings us some of the talented new musicians that you may not have heard before. He introduced us to two of my favorite artists : Dave Patten and Justin Barron. Now he’s put us on with a new talented rapper, Philly Chase. Chase began rapping in the streets of Philadelphia, PA at age 12 and was quickly noticed for his versatile cadences and innovative lyricism. Following in the footsteps of Jay-Z, Chase is heralded for his ability to recite hundreds of rhymes without pen or pad and record multiple songs in less than an hour. His ability to rap with ease over a beat is mesmerizing. Both “White Noise” and “Nite Lights” will have you’re head bumpin’. Philly has impressed me so far, let’s see what he can do next!

We may be a little late on this one, but this couldn’t be forgotten. Yonas has been making a name for himself flipping popular samples into hip-hop infused productions. Most notably, he re-created Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” and M83′s “Midnight City”. This time he tries his hand at Daft Punks ever-so-popular “One More Time”. The South Bronx rapper has a extremely smooth flow and provides catchy hooks. His delivery is up there with the best of the new MC’s. This is the lead single off his upcoming project, “The Transition”, due out in May.

Fresh off the success of his Macadelic mixtape, Mac Miller released a new jam via Twitter last night. I’m very surprised that this is the first time he’s ever collaborated with Jet Life MC Curren$y. Both Mac and Curren$y drop dope laid-back verses over a smooth Chuck Inglish (member of The Cool Kids) production. I have a feeling this could get a ton of play in a few days on 4/20.
Nothing can stop Timeflies! No really. With a Timeflies Tuesday banger on the way, their bus power shut down and they lost everything. Res provides a simple, yet smooth slow jam of a production. Cal’s vocals remixing Howie Day’s “Collide” are spot on. This combo is like Jordan / Pippen in their prime, they never disappoint. I’ve been fortunate enough to see these guys grow from the beginning, the sky is absolutely the limit for them. Catch them on their Scotch’d Up Tour near you. I’m real amped for the Irving Plaza show on May 3rd. Come chill with the Stags Flow writers if you’re going to be there.
