Disclosure, Sam Smith and Schoolboy Q? (“Latch” has been remixed by many, including DJ Premier. Not to mention, their biggest song to date.) Disclosure have just finished their whirlwind tour, wrapping up their last live show of the year yesterday and today they announce this track with Schoolboy Q. These guys never let up. This year was a phenomenal one for Disclosure, we can’t wait for their return. Listen after the jump.
This week, we are pleased to have none other than the Green Llama himself, Mr Dibia$e, sharing his favorite tracks of the moment. He’s been prolific from first emerging on the scene and hasn’t slowed down since. He keeps churning out that head nod shit to make you break your neck so be sure to keep up with him on Bandcamp and Twitter for more beats and peaces. Check out Dibia$e’s top ranking ALBUMS of the moment after the jump.
While Gene Simmons is claiming rock is dead, Death from Above 1979 releases a new album. The Physical World is the Canadian band’s sophomore effort and first release in 10 years. While it is not as much of a nose-bleed rager as their first and only other LP, You Are Woman, I Am Machine, it shows the band’s ability to grow their sound, while still remaining true, as well as take a 10 year hiatus and not flop. Something to note about DFA1979 is their attention to detail and level of commitment. Their logo remains the same, their artwork still clean and precise, and their onstage attire always black and white. The Physical World shows how much effort they’ve put into crafting new material and not using left overs from their previous release. If there is anything that DFA1979 does really well, it’s that they leave you wanting more. Looking forward to hearing more. Listen to the first track on the album, “Cheap Talk”, after the jump.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 27, 2014. In the tradition of Record Store Day, this is the second year of Cassette Store Day in the US and UK.

And where did volume 3 of Ras G’s Raw Fruit come from? Plus reissues of Donuts and Madvillainy on tape, what what? Look for more of this year’s highlights after the jump.

The man has immaculate musical taste from hip-hop to house and electronic, not to mention being sartorially inclined and adept. He’s been an inspiration, spiritual guide, supporter, and friend through it all so we are excited to present his favorite tracks of the moment:
