If Jesse Boykins III puts his name on it, usually a banger is expected. This new joint is no exception. An artist from JB3′s Romantic Movement, New Jersey native Moruf drops a smoothed out track about a clandestine love affair with a friend. Produced by THC and JB3, the groove has that “I Want You” vibe, complete with jazzy percussions. Moruf is gearing up from a November 12th album release so I’ll be on the look for more new music.

From the very first second of the track, BOSCO‘s new song “Slippin” feels like a free fall. Unrestricted and fearless, her breathy vocals, along with production team NEVR‘s electro-R&B direction, capture the emotions of seduction and longing. After her last single, I’m so looking forward to her upcoming project. Listen below and download the track for free!

This new video from the doper than dope Boog Brown has that red Solo cup, kickback flow to it. “Windows Open,” from her latest project, The Late Bloom, feels like an adieu to the summer: family & friends kickin’ it together, babies running around with wide smiles and beer* overflowing. Get into it and don’t forget to cop The Late Bloom! Available hard or soft.
*Heineken needs to give Boog an endorsement deal!

This is a different kind of funk, a slight deviation from the usual Funk It Out Fridays around here. It’s still funky, just a mellow version. Brought to you by Snarky Puppy from their latest release, Family Dinner, Volume 1, “Deep” (which was originally featured on N’Dambi’s Tunin’ Up & Cosignin’) was reworked as a live experience, encapsulating the original jazziness but extra rich in bass and percussion. Check it out below and pick up that new Family Dinner, Volume 1 as well. With features from Lalah Hathaway, Chantae Cann, Shayna Steele, the aforementioned N’Dambi and other talented vocalists, this album proves to be a must-have.

They’ve been chillin’ in the background, grinding out hits for Wondaland’s queen, Janelle Monae (who also executive produced this project). “Punk prophets” Nate Wonder and Chuck Lightning combined their powers to birth Deep Cotton, a funky duo set on reprogramming your ideas of radio and good music. Dubbing their sound “haunted funk n’ roll,” Deep Cotton’s
mixtape fixtape, Runaway Radio, compels its listener to abandon all notions of pinpointing a genre and labeling it along with the bad music one may be used to. Runaway Radio is reminiscent of Prince, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Outkast, Parliament Funkadelic, and The Universe. Seemingly, anything consisting of molecules influences the music. Move the furniture out the way, let your hair flow and funk out! Download the “fixtape” here.
