Mecca:83 and his collaborative crew are in the process of coming up with something brand new for you guys and while working, he had time to round up some of his favorite tracks for a free download.
I’m at the beach this weekend enjoying some rays and the laid-back nature of a seasonal town and this track listing bumps ever so nicely. Kick back and listen to the downtempo beats, nu-jazz flavor, and various samples and remixes all featured in this 12-track compilation.
Fervent flow, fabulous crate-digging samples, and a heavy beat keep Alexis Davis’ newest single alive and well. I’m loving on everything that this trio keeps cooking up, showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
Grab their latest, “Look,” and be sure to keep tabs on the gentleman here.
Over the past four or so years Jónó Mí Ló of Daytime Television and Sean Bowie of Teams have been collaborating on and off under their Teamm Jordan moniker. They have released a few tracks here and there but finally, seemingly out of no where (for me at least) the boys dropped a full length LP cassette titled Champion via Orange Milk Records. The release is full of sample heavy, future noise, screwed and slowed disco funk, occasionally beach-y, sex jams for your mind and soul. Lots of solid sounds on here and the artwork (above), which was a collab between Jónó and a feller over at Orange Milk is dope as hell.
Head over here and grab the tape before it’s gone and listen to the full thang thang below while you type in your billing and mailing address

I hit you all with the debut Alexis Davis track a short while back and now, they’ve just released their debut EP, 3.
Sure, I love listening to music song by song but there’s something so nice about when an artist/group takes the time to compile a collection of them together. I really enjoy the placement of each track, the flow from the start to finish, the moods evoked, and how you feel at the very end.
The Alexis Davis project is, “Two countries. Two time zones. Three DJ/producers. One MC.” It’s a talented group formed by Mecca:83, Spinnerty, Simon S, and MC Replife. Throughout the EP there’s classy jazz instrumentals with old school samples, flickering keys, and smooth hip hop beats that pull everything together. Taking these four already strong musicians and putting them in the same room is the equivalent of creating a super group. Solid on their own and even more powerful linked together.
Listen to their debut release below and stay tuned to these international gentleman.

With only two tracks on his soundcloud page, I was wondering if I found the correct Mike Landry. Based out of London, Landry shares with us a brilliant re-work/sampling of Childish Gambino’s track, “Heartbeat.”
I love in particular that this track doesn’t come crashing together at the end. I actually really enjoy the downtempo nature, melodic keys in the background, and that one specific Gambino line on repeat. It all just sounds so tight.
I actually chose this particular track for a Nice In The Headphones post because of one thing. The oscillating tones. The fluttering sounds that run in and out of your ear drums really make “Heartbeat” come alive. It’s incredible how much depth you can create within the electronic genre, the textures and layers that are present undoubtedly remind me of classical music. The possibilities are endless.
