Audio: Redbull Mixtape Vol. 1 - Free Download

 


It turns out Red Bull does more than produce magic manic water, kooky line-drawn commercials, and opportunities for folks to plunge into freezing water. Recently Red Bull put UK producer Toddla T in a studio with 9 other UK artist including Ghanian MC Kobi Onyami and waited for the magic to happen. Well the results are in and the mixtape is well worth the download. To be fair it’s a free download, but I’d have no problem paying for any of these tracks, especially “Explain Yourself” ft. Cleo Sol. Kobi is also a pretty formidable rapper, and Toddla T’s production has me on the search for anything else he’s ever made.  And to top it off, I pretty much fell in love with Cleo Sol after seeing her on the mixtape’s trailer (above). Also the final track “I Don’t Believe” by ToyFace is digitized, angelic, and the very definition of mellow. The mixtape features a pretty diverse range of songs, but Toddla T pulls them all together to make one enjoyable experience.  Tracklist after the jump.

If you like what you hear of Kobi Onyami, be sure to check out his album Green Green Grasses, available on iTunes.

9 Black Electronic Musicians You Should Be Listening To

Featuring DJ Lag, Spellling, Nozinja, Klein, LSDXOXO and more.

We know that Black queer DJs from the Midwest are behind the creation of house and dance music. Yet, a look at the current electronic scene will find it terribly whitewashed and gentrified, with the current prominent acts spinning tracks sung by unnamed soulful singers from time to time. Like many art forms created by Black people all over the world, the industry hasn't paid homage to its pioneers, despite the obvious influence they have. Thankfully, the independent music scene is thriving with many Black acts inspired by their forefathers and mothers who are here to revolutionize electronic music. Here are a list of the ones you should check out:
