Meet Black Atlass

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.

Frank Ocean “Wise Man” [Download]

Frank Ocean releases his contribution to the “Django Unchained” soundtrack, which unfortunately didn’t make the cut. Frank said “django was ill without it,” when he posted the song, with Quentin Tarantino adding “Frank Ocean wrote a fantastic ballad that was truly lovely and poetic in every way, there just wasn’t a scene for it. I could have thrown it in quickly just to have it, but that’s not why he wrote it and not his intention.”

Let us know what you think, hit save as to download the track.

AlunaGeorge “Watching Over You”

I’d be lying if I said AlunaGeorge wasn’t my favorite group currently making music. Yes, they probably surpassed The xx for the time being. Here’s their new track, “Watching Over You,” from the Annie Mac Presents 2012 compilation that dropped October 8th. I’d recommend buying/downloading (I don’t judge) that, featuring songs from Drake, Azealia Banks, M83, TNGHT, Jessie Ware, Diplo, Hot Chip, Nas, Frank Ocean, and A$AP Rocky, with many of them remixed.

Frank Ocean – Pyramids (New Video)

Check out the new video for one of my favorites from Channel Orange, “Pyramids.”  Awesome visuals from Nabil as we see the actor playing Frank making his way through strip clubs and the desert after taking shots of absinth. Even John Mayer makes a cameo with a solo towards the end. What do you think of the video? Let us know below!
