I like to make playlists…a lot. Many of my active friends ask me to create something nuts to listen to whilst working out. So when you see me running the streets, this is usually a healthy mix of what’s playing through the ear buds.
Have a creative theme for a playlist or DJ mix? Send suggestions to whatsprotocol[at]gmail.com. We like emails.
And of course I had to include this jam (RIP Guru):
I love this shit. Like I said before, it’s the “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that always draws me back to this duo. Every single time. Greg from Rapdragons left this vid in my inbox overnight and it’s a perfect hazy visual for the thickness of humidity that is outside of my central-air confines today.
“Got a Light” puts Neon Indian’s cushy bass and synths up against Nick and Greg’s chill-as-hell rap. These guys just seem like they’re down for a good freestyle any day of the week, as long as a certain ingredient is involved.
Fresh off the reels is Rapdragon’s new video for their song “Got a Light” off their newest release, Natural Born Chillers which you can download here
Got an email yesterday concerning Morning Teleportation news (remember their perfect pop song?)…the guys are teaming up with the visual duo, Phantasmic to create some sure to be awesome music/visual collaborations this summer but need some funding help.
Please roll on over to their Kickstarter page and see if it’s something that interests you, I’m sure they would appreciate anything you could donate.
When I first heard a track from these guys last year I thought it was a joke. They sound so nonchalant that it makes you think they’re two dudes hanging out, spitting some clever rhymes with their feet up on the coffee table.
That may not be far from the truth, but Nick Often and Greg Ward are quickly making moves producing mixtapes and records on the regular. Plus these guys are from my native state, Maryland, which almost makes me a bit sad that I’m posted up in Philly and not able to check them out in their Baltimore scene.
Ingenius lyrics with an “I don’t give a fuck attitude” is the key to my heart. Right-click and download, you won’t be disappointed. Make sure to check out their new new as well.
