New Music: Logic Marselis – MGNTK.2

a2365865891_10

New beat tape/mixtape from producer Logic Marselis called MGNTK.2. Logic, whom readers of this probably know from his work with UllNevaNo,  has a great sound that’s part traditional boom bap, part new school Dilla disciple, if that makes any sense. He goes smooth a lot of times but can make joints that knock too. This particular project was recorded on tape so it has a lo-fi quality. Before I listened I wasn’t sure if that would help or hurt the project but it actually has a very subtle effect that kind of muffles the samples some times but it gives it warmth that if you didn’t know it was on tape you’d probably feel. It definitely feels good. The joint called “california” has such a great almost transcendent vibe. The surprise for me though was him rhyming along with UllNevaNo on “Blk Business.” I really like his voice and his flow is pretty effortless. Check it out below but also support by going to Bandcamp and doing the “name your price” thing.

New Video: UllNevaNo – MGNTKFYING GLASS PERSPECTIVE

A brand new video from UllNevaNo looks pretty old school! The clip was directed by Logic Marsellis and utilizes a good ol’ VHS camcorder to get the feeling of a vacation video from the 90’s. The quirks of the retro technology are all there: the blurry focus, glitches, block font, etc. and it makes for some dope visuals for a smoothed out track produced by illien rosewell. Peep it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

New UllNevaNo

The brother UllNevaNo is a force of nature. I don’t know anyone that turns out more music and content as he does. He’s back with not only a new track called “MGNTKFYING GLASS PERSPECTIVE” from his upcoming collab with producer illien, but also a video for “Donna Deri,” a track from last year’s “The Protocol.” Both of these are heavy on the soul tip, but while “…PERSPECTIVE” finds UllNevNo talkin’ his shit, “Donna Deri” is a love story set to the same sample as Kendrick used for “Sing About Me.” Peep them both below and leave a comment.
