35bag - Elevator Girl + Find Me ft. Julia Spada + Game Over ft. Anthony Mills



Get to know 35bag...The guy is a multi-instrumentalist producer out of Sweden...His music is a fusion of old school R&B, Blues, Funk, Jazz, and a whole lot of other good stuff...I've been playing some his tracks the past couple of days and hes bonkers..I previously posted a track of his called 'Hot Like Hell' ft. Anthony Mils.. And I've returned with some more heat...I'm a fan of artists that do their own instrumentation.....Kind of needed some laidback music as an antidote to all the other stuff thats in my ipod...



35bag - Elevatorgirl



35bag - Find Me ft. Julia Spada<--Fresh...


35bag ft. Anthony Mills - Game Over.. shout to Mybestfriedismygrind.com for the last two joints..Best site I've seen on the music scene in Sweden.


Previously posted>> 35bag ft. Anthony Mills - Hot Like Hell

Item of the Week #12: Clear/Translucent Frame Wayfarer

Retrosuperfuture Blue Translucent Wayfarer

Retrosuperfuture Red Translucent Wayfarer

I was really feelin these 'Super' Clear Wayfarers when I posted them a minute ago and I started to see these around...Gotta say I'm feelin it...Here are some more pretty dope variations from some other well known brands you might dig...





Paul Smith X Oliver Peoples

2 Charles Hamilton Mixtapes: 'At Most I'm Just' + 'Dead Zone'



The guy loves Incubus...can't falt him for that...

At Most I'm Just



Dead Zone

Charles Hamilton is still a young dude and still has some growing up to do...but I know raw talent when I see it...The guy in the truist sense uses his lyricism as some form of therapy as has become clear since he makes a few new records on a seemingly daily basis. When you listen to some of these records its like your sitting in on his session with his therapists and hes just rattling off his thoughts... This guy really is the most prolific MC I can think of right now..

Asher Roth Gets buck nekked to Sell Records...Like D'Angelo



Truism: Pale ass white dudes should never do videos like this...in fact no male should ever do a video like this...But this is hella(did I just say that) funny!!

Well...I was doing some Javascript homework, but I checked my inbox and look what I found...

I got that hip-hop fix for that ass....some of the most talented NY grinders on the scene... I know you remember that 'Wu Wear' beat when the Wu-tang was droppin Wu-Wear(don't front like you didn't rock some Wu-wear..I was broke so all I could afford was the tees)..That joint was bangin everywhere in the 206 in those days especially all the Asian kids with their Honda Civics(the memories)...Well anyway the track features Mickey Factz, Fresh Daily, Homeboy Sandman, P.CASSO, Soul Purpose, A-butta, Christina K and Peter Hadar.

The track is off the upcoming Earthtone Mixtape Dropping soon...

Shout to P. Casso

Video: LoveJones & Phys Edison - Sit on the Moon



I knew this would be the first single...I recall saying something like...'Sit on the Moon is pretty Doooope!'...The first single off the album 'Sunday Drive' produced by Phys Edison..

Video description:

'Directed by Tori Boyd for Growing Young, Sit on the Moon offers a simple yet colorful landscape to add to the lyrics vivid imagery. The video shows Jones in his ruffled work clothes contemplating what a day off from work might feel like. With some of Chicago’s most original and colorful murals providing the backdrop, Sit on the Moon grabs the viewer’s attention and meshes perfectly with Phys Edison’s soulful instrumental and Jones’ introspective lyrics.'

LoveJones - Sit on the Moon

Thanks to Mike for shooting this over...
