As you may have noticed, posts on acityinthemidwest have recently slowed down. I’m studying abroad in Spain so posting as frequently as the last couple of months in 2012 is a bit difficult.

Angel Haze & Lunice “Gimme That”

Fresh from her first ever London performance, Angel Haze and Luckyme producer Lunice – who just finished a gig at the Warehouse Project with Hudson Mohawke as TNGHT – met for the first time at Metropolis Studios, where they worked into the night creating a new song, from scratch. “Gimme That” is the latest in adidas originals and yours truly’s “Songs from Scratch” series that also includes Danny Brown & Araabmuzik’s “Molly Ringwlad,” and Joey Bada$$’ “Daily Routine.”
