Once again curated by Cee and Tiffany Alexis, the mixtape takes you on a journey that perfectly complements the most romantic night of the year. With synth pop from UK alt R&B baritone Kwabs to trap soul from Bryson Tiller, smooth future soul from IAMNOBODI to reggae-infused rock from Joss Stone, minimal indie pop from Banks to moving slow jams from Aussie Jarryd James, thug love songs from Sean Price (RIP) to island vibes from Jonathan Emile, 'The Valentine's Day Mixtape Volume 8' has something for every taste.

This project is an eight track love letter to the city of Montreal. It was entirely written, produced, recorded, shot and designed in the 514, with the exception of Notion's mixing and mastering in Toronto (he's part of The Movement Fam so it's cool). Dr. MaD's production is enveloped in the art of sampling, with old Soul and Jazz tunes brought to life by his deft chops, dipping them in Hip Hop on the way out. Cee used this sonic landscape to tell real life stories about his experiences in Canada - leaving his home country of Australia to pursue a dream in the great wide north, the tumultuous move to Montreal, dealings with immigration, and his regular battles with fear, doubt and negative energy. Ultimately, it's a story of two artists connecting through the love of music in order to express their 'amour' for the city, the country and the culture of Hip Hop.
A youthful barrage of neu-disco, progressive and electro-sprinkled synths, J-Lah's Time Trap EP contains sounds for every EDM lover. The lead single, Time Trap, provides an alluring steady climb of introductory synthesizers and, after much foreplay, spontaneously combusts into a drop of rich, characterful melody with an enormous amounts of energy. Conversely, You Don't Understand conveys more intimacy - a contemplative homage to influences of past, present and future. The Time Trap EP is JLah's first official record release, and we are extremely proud to welcome him into the Burner family.
I've been copping a LOT of shit from the homies lately for my adoption of skinny jeans. It ain't really a reflection of fashion for me, it sorta came to be due to my burgeoning taste in music. But for some reason, it just ain't that accepted in Hip Hop.
Check out Cipha Sounds going shopping in Harlem for his own pair of skinny jeans. lol @ Snooki!
Now that I got that over with, let me explain it.
The site broadcasts concerts and DJ performances LIVE from around the world.
Covers all styles of music but rest assured Hip Hop is well represented. You can list events by musical genre as well as venue list (bar, club, concert venue, etc.).
I just found out about this place but signed up as soon as I saw that they will be streaming a live Pete Rock set from Stockholm, Sweden tomorrow. Are you serious? Cancelling my plans as we speak.
Took me one minute to register. Currently streaming some "eclectic" music from a record store in Canada to test it out. Amazing.
In 5 hours I'll get my first taste of Hip Hop live from Bed Supperclub in Bangkok, Thailand.
Get to it. Audio quality is surprisingly great and I haven't had a single hiccup in the 10-15 minutes I've been listening.
