Hip hop from all over the world y’all.
Canadian-based Moka Only has been skating along the boundaries of my radar for quite some time now. He’s worked with many different underground artists, big and small, to lay a few lines or help in the production phase. I love his willingness to work with various musicians to create something truly diverse each and every single time.
Check out my round-up of tracks from this legendary artist, who’s released more than 40 albums in his music career so far, and I’m sure, much more to come.
New Season (ft. Ohmega Watts & Moka Only) – The Extremities

Steal My Sunshine – Len
Right-click and enjoy all.
I live my life by post-it notes and I have been severely ignoring the one I left myself a couple of weeks ago about how I need to blog about all these great songs. Well, why don’t I just pool them altogether so I don’t feel even more guilty about not sharing them.
People In The Hole – Catherine Feeny little bluesy, little Sheryl Crow-esque.. I dig it. I used to recommend this song to people and tell them it explained life. I love this song.
Night and Day – Chief This is a sad song. The lyrics are dripping with desperation of escape. I love the chorus.
Clamor – Balmorhea An Austin-based instrumental band who I dearly love and admire. Who the hell just sticks with instrumentals anymore right? I can always count on this solid, solid band. Enjoy the newest and most raved about.
Ancestral Lands – The Townhouses More instrumentals? Yes, please. A little bit of island vibes flowing through this one and also some instruments I wouldn’t necessarily pair together but it does work.
Days Ahead – Museum of Bellas Artes I’m going to be honest with you guys..not a responsible blogger move, but I don’t know shit about these girls but the music they output is fantastic. It’s all over the place and I’m totally feeling it. Vintage, island beats with laid back vocals…only thing they’re missing is some lo-fi (ha…..).
One in a Million Does – Hancock Basement Just throwing you guys a fun song from a fun pop-rock Australian band trying to make it in this ol’ industry.
BONUS: You Sleep Alone – Hellogoodbye I uploaded this song solely to dedicate to Vlad..I know you miss those “Dear Jamie” days…now they actually came out with something new.
Enjoy per usual (as I like to believe..).
