Daniel Son x DJ Duke x DJ Low Cut – Long Season (Prod Dj Low Cut) (Video)

New collaborative project, Season 7, from Toronto based rhyme slinger, Daniel Son, and French producers DJ Duke and DJ Low Cut. And if you are familiar with just ONE of these artists, you know this project is going to knock. I am well versed in all three, and so copping the project was a no brainer.

Right now, there is few hotter than Daniel Son and he continues on his roll working in the sounds of the boom bap from Duke and Low Cut. So check the cut and the cinematics, then purchase the album!

Daniel Son x Futurewave – Waffle Brunch (Video)

Daniel Son and Futurewave have killed it yet again with their recent album collaboration, Yenaldooshi.  This album is full of gems just like this.  Futurewave layers some mellow and boom bap for Daniel Son to put out something memorable with lines just like this.  He’s always in the pocket:

“Maybe you’ll get signed if you tag Conway a hundred times…”

“It’s a sad sight….the devil wouldn’t buy your soul for half price…”

“Gave your life to this shit…and then the shit forgot ya…”

Daniel Son x Futurewave – Poppy Resin (Feat. Al Divino) (Video)

Let me let you in on a secret…Daniel Son and Futurewave are the best combination doing it right now.  They hit on all cylinders when they chef up some new music.  Whether you listen to Pressure Cooker or Physics of Filth, you will recognize the high degree of talent and chemistry that exists.

Poppy Resin is just the tip of the iceberg off of their new album, Yenaldooshi, which I have listened to twice at the point with more listens to come.  There is a brilliant darkness here that needs to have a constant light shed on it.  Al Divino lends his grimy approach to this particular track and it is indeed flames.

BrownBagMoney x Da Cloth – Carnation Milk (Video)

This is a current Dream Team right here!  BrownBagMoney connects with Da Cloth over a Futurewave beat, and then the world just catches aflame.   That’s how hot this shit is!  Rigz, Saipher Soze, Daniel Son, and Mooch drop salvo after salvo of street lyricism that will have you yearning for more.   This is a combination that needs let’s say a 16 track opus.   A few posse cuts…each artist having their own track…all over some Futurewave production.   That has all the trappings of classic.

A guy can dream can’t he?
