Le1f takes the lead in New York club rap with his own particular brand of gusto and guffow-inducing lyrics on the follow-up to “Dark York”: “Fly Zone”.

Clams Casino is probably on of the hottest producer of the moment, launching A$SAP ROCKY into the hip hop stratosphere and saving Lana Del Rey from the brink of hipster oblivion in less than a year.

Talk Hard sent me this seamless blend of Kavinsky and B.I.G. called ‘Nightcalling Big Poppa’ at the exact moment when I pressed play for the Diplo Mad Decent Transformers in the Hood Mixtape.
And here you were, thinking the universe was nothing but random events and chaos.
“Let everything happen to you. Beauty and terror. Just keep going. No feeling is final.” -Rainer Maria Rilke
Let’s start the day with some heart-stopping beauty and terror by this guy (who looks like this when posing naked with a bird on his head).
Contains snippets from Lost Highway, the Warszaw track by David Bowie that inspired Ian Curtis to start Joy Division (and still kicks major witch house ass today), Brian Eno, Amadou & Mariam and one of my current favourites: Obsessions (oOoOO Remix) by Marina & the Diamonds.
