You’re a fan of Illa J but you’re also a fan of DJ Spinna, ever hoped their worlds would intermingle? You are in luck today, for Spinna did a remix of Illa’s “Sunflower”, which features A L L I E. You may already have Illa J’s self-titled album and have been enjoying this song a lot but you have never heard it quite like this, and I’m saying this because it is a DJ Spinna remix. You don’t mess with him.
Illa J is prepared to release a new album and he loved it so much, he named it after himself. It’s eponymous, which means it’s self-titled, which means it too is called Illa J, featuring appearances from Moka Only, Ivan Ave, and Kaytranada. Stream it in full above and if it moves you, pre-order it below through Bandcamp, which includes the vinyl pressing.
For this post, I have to make something clear first and foremost: this new song by Illa J features Moka Only. Yeah, that’s enough to say “I don’t want to read any more of your gibberish, I’m going to” but then I interrupt you and say “WAIT, MAN! THIS SONG ALSO HAS IVAN AVE!” You take a step back and offer a Keanu “whoa!”
The song will also appear on his self-titled debut album on Bastard Jazz, including a vinyl pressing, so pre-order a copy or 12 by clicking Bandcamp below. Go ahead.
Illa J has decided to name his forthcoming album after himself. Or you could say it is self-titled, or untitled, whatever you’re comfortable with. Whatever you believem Illa J’s Illa J is due out on the 2nd of October through Bastard Jazz and he wants to pass along a song from it with a new video called “Universe”.
Pure juice from producers Potatohead People & Kaytranada resulted in another juicer from Illa J called “Strippers”, which makes tasting it, kissing it, and loving it more emotional than any other song you have ever heard in your life. You may want to finger this whenever you feel like doing the feeling, so if it’s worth a deuce, get into the puce, champion style.
Frank Nitt is the shiznit and he will be doing it more on May 26th when he drops his new album <iFrankie Rothstein. To take a listen to what is lurking inside, have a listen to the J-Rocc-produced “Slippin'”, which features Illa J. Together, they may not tell any secrets but they do share stories they feel you will approve of. Start approving.
You may know/remember Frank Nitt as being one half of Frank & Dank but he’s doing his thing on his own and is ready to release a new project called Frankie Rothstein. For it, he did a song with Illa J and T3 called “Money On My Mind”, uses a solid drum sample of known importance and makes it funky. Frankie Rothstein will drop in May.
It’s the most wonderful timne of the year, and that’s partially (maybe even primarily) because Moka Only has released a new holiday treasure. True to previous releases, this one is called Martian XMAS 2014 which features help from Illa J and A-Ro plus some songs produced by Julez Chaz. Wish him and everyone a festive holiday season, then show some supoort for Moka’s new project.
Yancey Boys have a nice one with “Quicksand”, and by welcoming Common and Dezi Paige, you know that’s a ball in the goal right there. Need further convincing? The instrumental is from the Dilla vaults. Boom: GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!
