by chelsea - November 28, 2014

Appropriately released on Black Friday, The Neighbourhood released their latest mixtape #000000 & #FFFFFF.

We’ve previously heard songs such as ‘Jealou$y,’ ‘warm,’ and recently ‘#icanteven,’ but now the entire collection of songs is available for free via Datpiff. Click in […]

Sunday Candy – Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment

by Joseph - November 26, 2014

The seasonal timing of this song could not be more perfect. Being that late November into December is a time for great appreciation and thanksgiving, Sox’s latest work is surely something to be thankful for. The evolution of Chance The Rapper’s sound is most evident in this newest song, and if this release is even […]

The Night – Honne

by Vanessa - November 26, 2014

I’ve come to the conclusion that Britain’s two-piece soul machine Honne is my favorite new act this Fall. As temperatures finally dropped (slowly, and inconsistently) in Los Angeles, I began seeking a different auditory texture that encompassed the range of emotions that the chillier seasons sneakily expose. Honne’s music epitomizes this collage of emotion: smooth […]

Let Go (feat. Mariah O) – ROB

by Dustin - November 25, 2014

Every day there seems to be some new brick stacking, cheese sacking, gun touting gangsta whipping work in an abandoned building, whose amateur online promotional and musical abilities make waves in clubs or the internet. On the other hand, and where Kollection newcomer ROB finds himself, there are those who are more content to consume the […]

Coloring – Kevin Garrett

by Vanessa - November 24, 2014

Brooklyn’s Kevin Garrett has pulled me in real, real close with this one. “Coloring” is a stunning debut, touching on the painful remnants of a relationship and its complicated, undecided fate. Tender yet potent lyrics float over delicate instrumentals with just enough punch to keep you listening through the end, although you know where the […]

by Nikos - November 24, 2014

As artists continue to expand past the construct of genres, we are, more than ever before, luckily witnessing music expand into many previously unimaginable forms. Allan Kingdom, Bobby Raps, Psymun, and Spooky Black do just that with the formation of their group thestand4rd and the release of their debut album by the same name. By […]

#icanteven (feat. French Montana) – The Neighborhood

by chelsea - November 22, 2014

At first glance, you’d think The Neigborhood was taking a stab at dramatic girls all across the Internet with the title of their latest track, ‘#icanteven’ featuring French Montana. This song features the familiar style of glazed-over vocals from The Neighborhood, expressing emotions over a relationship split apart by cheating, while French makes a quick […]

Shake the Earth (feat. Lyon Hart) – Elephante

by chelsea - November 22, 2014

We’ve been proud supporters of Elephante here on The Kollection for quite some time now, and with each continuing release adds more authenticity and the blatant potential of a thriving career. His newest original release, ‘Shake the Earth’ featuring Lyon Hart, contains the usual resonance of a huge house anthem alongside powerful vocals. His previous remixes are […]
