New Music: UllNevaNo x [w], plus “Confidence is Everything” re-release

MIRROR-NEVA

My man UllNevaNo never seems to stop working. I am a little late posting his full length with [w], but we did have some of the singles here. The full length is one of the best by Neva, IMO. The whole MGNTK movement with Neva, logic marselis and Illien is really fucking solid. Everything they’ve been doing is dope and really interesting.

New Music: Logic Marsalis

My dude Ullnevano sent me over this really dope beat tape by his homie Logic Marsalis.  It’s pretty dope all around.  It’s mixed together which I like but I’d also like to be able to skip from track to track if I wanted to.  But dude handles samples really nicely; chopping them up crazy sometimes (peep hjow he used the same Leo’s Sunshipp sample that Mainframe used but flipped it totally different) and other times knowing when a loop is just THAT good, and then sprinkling in some snippets from movies and vocal samples to keep things interesting.  I really like how he has a sample of Mos Def saying “NICE!” and “Magic” every now and again.  He’s without a doubt influenced by Dilla but you know I can get behind that.  Check it out for yourself and leave us a comment with your thoughts!  The tracklist is below.
