Ontario native Alex Flemming, aka Black Atlass, first burst onto the scene about 11 months ago with his masterpiece The Black Atlass EP. Featuring 6 songs spanning roughly 18 minutes, Flemming displays his production versatility with a mix of sample heavy bangers and synth laid piano wails that will upset you when you learn he’s most likely younger than you. That’s right, the EP was released when he was just 17. Take a listen (and then download) the whole EP below.
The sun was blazing, models were dancing and Red Bull was flowing at the exclusive Fool’s Gold Rap party last Saturday at the Red Bull Guest House in Miami featuring A-Trak. The event was absolutely the highlight of my Miami vacation, and one week later I’m still reminiscing and wishing I could go back. A-Trak spun gold per usual and introduced special guest Alchemist who also played an awesome set. I learned two very important lessons at the amazing rooftop pool party: 1. don’t keep your cellphone in your pocket because there is a 90% chance you will be thrown into the pool and 2. four Red Bulls in the span of two hours may be too many. I suggest you change into your bathing suit, turn on your heat lamp and turn up the mix below, pretending you’re in Miami at the #rbguesthouse tonight.
