DJ Trademark is at it again with a mashup perfect for your Friday night. Using Rihanna and Calvin Harris as the background instrumental and core piece, blending in some LMFAO, Steve Lade & Xspectiv, and Bruno Mars, Young Love is catchy and energized. It’s four minutes long, but when it was over I was anxious to hear more – always a good sign for an up and coming mashup artist! Download for free and enjoy!
I really enjoy Kinetics verse on this one, still getting used to the sound of feature artist Krystyle. Produced my Kid Vision, mixed by One Love, 845 is the newest piece by Kinetics, and I’m really enjoying the laid back beat. Kinetics and One Love are gearing up for an album drop in 2012, and they will be releasing a new track each week until the end of the year – stay tuned here on The Kollection!
VIBE, the duo of Rossy and Chris Young, debuted their first album Hakuna Matata a few days ago. Their sound is a similar style to that of Radical Something and Shwayze, which is an addictive genre that everyone can appreciate. With Rossy’s soothing vocals in the chorus’, and Chris Young’s excellent rapping, you can’t help but want to sing along. The chill vibes this album give off are pure bliss. What else do you expect from an album titled “Hakuna Matata?” Kollect this album for free and enjoy!
I don’t know how this kid only has 360 Facebook fans. This is hit #4 by my count, and DJ 21azy doesn’t seem to be slowing down. This latest mashup blends together Wiz and Childish into one awesome mashup. It’s simple, but it works incredibly well, and deserves your attention at the next party. Listen above and snag this one for free!
This is a nice refreshment from what we normally push here on The K. 2AM Club is an awesome group that has absolutely blown up this past year. Their most recent release, Reach Down Deep is available for free when you like their Facebook Page. This track has amazing production, beautiful vocals, and a hook that has been stuck in my head since I first listened.

Here’s a highlight track and video from The Good Husbands’ latest mixtape, The Proposal. The video is fun and light-hearted – a perfect match to the Big Z production on the instrumental. Feel good track, feel good video, peek it below and download for free!
Here’s some new visuals from OnCue, one of my favorite upcoming artists right now. The visuals are low key and dark, the beat eery, and the lyrics packed with Cuey’s usual emotions. He’s a lyricist, and an artist, and I really can’t wait for Can’t Wait. I had the chance to see OnCue live this past weekend – expect an interview soon!
Cuey’s next tape, Can’t Wait drops November 16th – we’ll have it for you here on The Kollection!
Here’s another new artist to The Kollection, Thello Jay. This track, Brothers Keeper is a lot slower and more laid back hip hop. I really enjoy tracks like these that have awesome instrumentals, but consciously push them to the background to let the vocals and lyrics shine through. The three verses are delivered with style, variation, emphasis, and emotion – traits that made this one shine for me. Take a listen, download for free, and support Thello on Facebook.
The Dean’s List drop some fresh new visuals [sponsored by Red Bull] for one of the more electro-inspired tracks off their hit mixtape, The Drive-In [talk about major cross appeal]. The video tells a little story, and is still extremely fun and entertaining per usual D.L. fashion. Check it out, and snag the track if you missed it before here on the K!
I’m seeing these guys tomorrow on tour in LA – I. Cannot. Wait. Check their dates/get tix here!
Here we go! I’m really feeling this new drop from Kollection newcomer, Jay Fresh. The sample on this one sets the entire pace and tone of the track, but Jay’s lyricism and flow on top brings it all together. The bits of production within the track are unique and crisp. Let’s keep an eye on Jay Fresh and see what he can do.
