Yesterday the new track by the Gorillaz was released. This track is a funky rendition that utilizes its guest collaborators, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Andre 3000, very well. It has the catchy sound of a classic LCD Soundsystem track with an added flow from Andre 3ooo to finish it off. The new track is available for download on converse.com(great marketing I may add) so if you like what you hear go on over and scoop this one up for free. While you are there check out the Limited Edition Chuck Taylor Gorillaz Collection or play around and design your own pair of Classic Chuck Taylors.

That’s right folks, The Coldplay Sessions album is finally here. I was going to hold off on posting this until I did a review, but I’m so blown away by this project that I felt compelled to post it now. GoodMusicAllDay, Ashley Outrageous and DJBooth.net proudly released M.i’s new project on Tuesday. The Austin, Texas native did all of the production on the album (with the exception of the last track which is produced by Tyler Keyes), and he also did all of the mixing and engineering. The production on this album is crisp, and all of the samples are perfectly utilized to make incredible cuts.
I’ve been a fan of M.i’s since I first heard his mixtape Prep Time, and I can honestly tell you that I will keep following this dude as long as he keeps putting out music. In today’s music age, it’s not that common to see a jack-of-all-trades like M.i, and he’s very good at what he does. Ever since it came out on Tuesday, I’ve been spinning The Coldplay Sessions non-stop. As I’ve said many times before, M.i has a laid back flow that makes it so easy to like his style. Now all I can do is impatiently wait on the album that Tyler and M.i have been putting together for the last year since Tyler moved to Texas; good lord is that project going to be bonkers.
You can download The Coldplay Sessions here, and make sure you stay tuned for an album review coming very soon.
