Shout Out to Stones Throw for the heads up on this new mixtape from Jon Wayne which dropped today. I did find it amusing that they still advertise that these mixtapes are free, I mean, what’s not free nowadays?According to his Facebook page it looks like he was supposed to drop this on Friday, but was itching to shed it off his hard drive, and dropped it today like a G on Mediafire, Stones Throw quickly swooped in and had directed most downloads to their server. This guy is a personal fave of mine, his beat selection on this mixtape is a big reason why, who wouldn’t like a FlyLo bootleg. Peep the tracks below and see if you want to download it son, for FREE! That first track “whatarewegonnacallit” is dope fiyah.
Limerence : a neologism used to describe an involuntary state of mind which seems to result from a romantic attraction for another person combined with an overwhelming, obsessive need to have one’s feelings reciprocated.
So, you know how there is a gaping hole out there in the production game? I mean really, tell me your favorite three producers, and I bet you at least two of them are either dead or really not that dope. We’re parched for some quality sonic liquid, enter Young Montana with his canteen that he’s aptly named Limerence. YM is a new and quite young (20 years old) producer from the UK, having been tabbed ‘Favourite Unsigned Artist of 2010′ by Pitchfork last year, it comes as little surprise that he has found a home on Alpha Pup. That’s exciting stuff, considering the Low End connection, for Angelino’s in the know, this could mean a sighting at The Airliner on an upcoming Wednesday night, maybe on the regular even? Take a peak at the new album, and consider buying it, he’s young, the kid could use the money for prophylactics and Red Bull, or whatever it is that inspires dopeness nowadays. FYI, favorite track, Hot Heathrr.
