EARCANDY SMÖRGASBORD feat. Jai Paul, Light Asylum, Danny Brown, Ab-Soul, Bei Maejor, A$AP ROCKY etc.


Posted on April 21st, by legrandfromage in life, mixtape, music, style, video. No Comments

A new companion to the Eyecandy Smörgasbords to give you guys an idea of what the KNOTORYUS offices sound like.

JAI PAUL – JASMIN

Two official tracks in, just demos really, and this guy is already one of the most talked about artists today.  ‘Jasmine’ is one of those slow burners that you never get tired of.

 

AB-SOUL – PINEAL GLAND

Part of the ‘Black Hippy’ collective with Kendrick Lamar and such + full-on illuminati.


 

BEI MAEJOR – MOMENTS

Much compared to The Weeknd, but much easier on the ears and not as twisted and perverted.


A$AP ROCKY – GOLDIE

Dat pretty motherf*cker keeps putting out must-downloads that make Harlem sound as sweltering as the South.



LIGHT ASYLUM – IPC

16 months after we first wrote about Light Asylum, they’re finally ready to release their debut album.

 

 

DEATH GRIPS – THE MONEY STORE

The hardest band to listen to on earphones is back with a real, roaring album after the mixtape. Press clip quote: “acceleration is a mantra”.

 

And for the encore:

Danny!

A.k.a. Danny Swain. Check out his Tumblr, which archeologists in 2075 might use as a means to discuss the status of of pop-culture in 2012, and specifically: how a young rapper experiences coming up in a post-Flocka, post-Lil B world.
