Azealia Banks has been about to pop (nay, explode) for a couple years now, and we're now presumably a few weeks away from her official debut LP Broke With Expensive Taste. "BBD" is a baroque banger with a rumbling low-end, EDM synth freakouts and deliberately old-fashioned piano vamping. Will it be on the album, though? Looks like there are some sample issues to workout first.
Bobby Tank is a fresh-out-the-fryer UK dance producer with a mushroom cloud of media and fan support since a single Ibiza Rocks performance earlier this summer. One turn of the traptastic “I B Goin Here,” and it’s oh-so-clear why. Clap, jerk, raise up or spin it like a helicopter to a tune that’s sure to worm its way into heavy rotation for dirty birds across the pond or right here at home. Looking for more? We got you. Looking for a NSFW neon space orgy clip? We got that too, you pervert.
As 2012 fades and 2013 appears on the horizon, you will have answered a great many questions that today seem unanswerable. Will the world end as the Mayans predicted? If not, who will our next president be and how will he handle this nation of unrest, its job woes; its vast sociopolitical and fiscal divides? And most importantly, how good is Trap Music gonna get, huh? Because it's already amazing. Listen to TNGHT’s (Hudson Mohawke and Lunice) The Full Uncensored Mix and see the future: a heaping plate of sticky icky southern bass so ingestible, you'll never want to stop. Sort of hip-hop, sort of dance and all kinds of screwed, TNGHT’s mix (which premiered this summer on Diplo’s BBC Radio 1 show) includes music by Chief Keef, Kanye, Drizzy, 2 Chainz and more. This one's on us if you spend a few for the duo’s debut EP here.
