N.E.R.D.

N.E.R.D. is an incredible fusion of funk, hip hop, and rock music courtesy of  Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo.  The band (No one Ever Really Dies) has been around since 2001 and released their latest album Nothing in 2010.  Pharrell’s sensual voice adds the funk to the entertaining guitar riffs and rock and roll style drums.  The sound is a great change of pace from the hip hop on the radio but keeps the same edge.

Things are Getting Better

This song is perfect for any day and any mood.  The care-free attitude of the band shines through and the song is simply just incredibly fun to listen to.  Fast paced drums and a little jazz guitar can make anybody feel better.

Backseat Love

The name of this track is pretty self-explanatory.  The sensuality is displayed and is enough to put you in the mood by the end of the song.

Donnis

Donnis is an up and coming rapper out of Atlanta Georgia who released his first mixtape in 2009.  His sound is made for the party scene, with catchy synths and lyrics based on the fast life.  His voice is comparable to B.O.B. but his content and lyrical style is in it’s own genre.

Gone

This song is made for the all nighters.  Play this track on the drive to a party and you’ll have the perfect balance of rager mentality mixed with the right balance of the chilled attitude.  Clever punchlines and a hook that describes most Saturday nights makes this song essential to the party playlist.

Underdog

Underdog displays the quick lyrical ability that he can bring.  The instrumentals seem throwback to an old school style of sampling makes the song sound like it could be a classic.


Tinie Tempah

An upbeat rapper straight out of south London.  His debut album Disc-Overy was released last October at number one in the UK.  If you don’t find yourself dancing to these upbeat rythms and lyrics then you might want to check your pulse.

Miami 2 Ibiza

This song is all about powerful house beat provided by Swedish House Mafia and catchy lyrics.  Tinie’s unique accent makes this concept seem fresh even though we’ve all heard standard rap/club music before.

Frisky

The instrumentals on this track are amazing.  The producer Labrinth is on the rise, and Tinie delivers a singable hook and easily quotable lyrics.
