By far, my favorite joint off the new DJ Shadow LP The Less You Know The Better, "Scale It Back" featuring Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon gets the visual treatment. Unfortunately, the busy Little Dragon vocalist is not featured in the actual video, however, it does display some interest artsy visuals from director and producer Ewan Jones Morris & Casey Raymond. Check it out above and if you haven't already, pick up DJ Shadow's newest here.
If this song couldn't get any doper, Drumma Boy jumps on the remix and makes the beat even sexier and also provides some extra vocals from Shabazz Palaces. Thats what's up. Take a listen to the new mix in the player below.
How can you not be down with Little Dragon? After the awesome release of their latest album Ritual Union, Yukimi's various guest features (Maximum Balloon, Gorillaz, SBTRKT) and this cover of Crystal Waters "Gypsy Woman (La Da Dee)" live at Ibiza, we're are rapidly falling even more in love with this group. Check out the live cover in the player below and grab Ritual Union if you haven't already you dunce.
Check out the new record from Yukimi Nagano and company titled Ritual Union before its release next week courtesy of NPR. I've been excited for this record ever since checking out Little Dragon at SXSW, so when we got the advance on this record, it's been on rotation nonstop. Take a listen to Little Dragon's beautiful synth pop masterpiece below and let us know what you think about it. Enjoy!
Drake is back on his blog shit, feels like 2009 again especially after hearing the news that he's in the studio with The Weeknd. The Young Money rapper/singer dropped 2 new tracks on the October's Very Own blog late last night. The first being a remix of the SBTRKT x Little Dragon collabortive single "Wildfire" and the second "Dreams Money Can Buy" which could be a possible intro to Drake's sophomore album Take Care. You can check out both tracks down in the player below. Shouts to Pigeons & Planes for both of these.
Drake - "Dreams Money Can Buy"
SBTRKT & Yukimi of Little Dragon feat. Drake - "Wildfire" (Remix)
I've said it once and i'll keep saying it, I love Little Dragon's Yukimi Nagano. Honestly, that girl can sing and it well known as shes been featured in multiple collaborations like Gorillaz and Ge-ology over the last year or so. So it comes as no surprise that SBTRKT would enlist her vocal talents for their latest single "Wildfire." Check out this funky/sexy tune off the band's upcoming self-titled LP, which is set to release on June 28 via Young Turks, in the player below courtesy of Hypetrak/Gorilla vs. Bear.
