PartyNextDoor - Recognize (Alex Mendoza Remix)

With the rumored Yeezy Season approaching, let's not sleep on the fact that The Kings Dead Season also seems to be finally approaching! The long awaited sequel to Revenge of the Beast has alluded the internet waves for awhile now, but with the soon release of a new single, the album is now upon us.

Prior to the release of the album, producer Alexander Mendoza will be dropping a free EP appropriately titled "Libre". When it comes to dance remixes, Mendoza is second to none. Alex's spin on PartyNextDoor is a great, smooth summer vibe. "Libre" should be a great way to indulge in new tunes until the drop of "Utopia". The beast is back!

Cydeways - Stay With Me (Official Music Video)

Today I am very excited to introduce you all to an awesome new artist, Cydeways. Cydeways is a group consisting of Dustin Parks (vocals) and Trevor Buckingham (production), who started making music under the name Cydeways in 2012. Although originally from the Boston area, Dustin now resides in sunny LA, and the west coast influence is very prevalent in his sound, which can only be described as laid back hip-hop with a little reggae mixed in, or in other words a perfect easygoing summer vibe.

"Stay With Me" is the most recent single from the incredibly talented duo, and between Dustin's smooth wordplay and the beachy production, this track is perfect for any summer festivities you may have, including some similar to whats going on in the video. Definitely a shoot I would not have minded being involved in. Be sure to check out the track, video, and show Cydeways some love.

Isaiah Toothtaker - Your Majesty EP

A new name in the rap game, Isaiah Toothtaker brings some intelligent lyricism and quick flows on his brand new EP Your Majesty. Although this is technically a rap EP, the production by Meaty Ogre will turn the chill factor up to 11. I pressed play on Your Majesty while I was working & had to glance back at the Soundcloud page to make sure it was still the same EP. It's the perfect project for a car ride, sitting back, and relaxing while you hit an L.

Hats off to this pair of Isaiah Toothtaker and Meaty Ogre, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for these guys. Leave us any comments on the EP below!
