Song of the Day: “Hold The Line” by Anderson .Paak

Anderson .Paak (f.k.a. Breezy Lovejoy? Los Angeles) released his Cover Art EP (as a name-your-price release) November 27th. I’m assuming (maybe erroneously) that “Roquel Rodriguez” is Raquel Rodriguez. This is a cover of a Toto song that has a special place in my heart.

Song of the Day: “In Love With Living” by Skyzoo & Antman Wonder

Skyzoo (NYC) & Antman Wonder (Philly) released their An Ode To Reasonable Doubt (“the orchestral remake of Jay’s finest moment”) on a name-your-price basis last Wedesday 12/4 on First Generation Rich Inc./Loyalty Digital Corp. [via bamalovesoul]

The 9 song EP shows Philly composer Antman Wonder recreating the original beats with live string sections, horns, etc, while lyrically its written from the perspective of Sky placing himself in the emotions that Jay displayed on the original, but from his point of view, as opposed to reinterpreting Jay’s life.

Song of the Day: “That Minnie Break / Fall In Love (Live/One Take)” by Mark de Clive-Lowe

Mark de Clive-Lowe (Los Angeles by way of London + New Zealand) has been posting these really impressive videos of him creating tracks in one take as a great way to promote his Kickstarter Campaign for his new album. He’s 81% of the way there (up from 76% yesterday) and there is one week left, I encourage you to support.

Song of the Day: “One In A Million” by Shortcircles
