DOWNLOAD: MAR – SEEING HER NAKED EP
This can actually be a really short post, cause frequent Strangefruitmusic visitors already know that whatever Mar”s name is attached to …. is going to be a snooth musical experience.
I’ve been keeping an eye on his “Seeing her Naked” release ever since the track ”Our Attempt” was poppin up all over the net. But since it made me anxious and impatient, I decided that no Strangefruitmusic reader should experience the agony of waiting for this musical gem. Instead of enticing you with just one track, Noggy decided to let Mar overwhelm you with the full release of “Seeing her naked” (believe me ..you will be thankful after streaming).

Get ready for a match made in collab heaven ….
Irish beat maker Krystal Klear teams up with velvet voiced Washington DC native Olivier Day Soul. To deliver us pure 80′s infused RnB magic.
Brought to you by Eglo Records. Limited vinyl run released Dec 19th. Digital out Jan 2012.
Aluna Francis and George Read are taking the blogosphere by storm with there catchy RnB infused tune “You know you like it”. I actually discovered them a while ago when I was cruising Amalia her wall … cause the lady has incredible taste as well as an incredible voice.
Meet Christopher Breaux better known as Frank Ocean. This name might not ring a bell now but believe me it will. This twenty something dude has already written songs for Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Brandy and someone who is more my flavah … John Legend.
This year he is been making waves all over the blogosphere. Not only as a member of the Odd Future clan (yep …with Tyler, the creator) but he also released a mixtape by name of Nostlagia, Ultra which was pretty well received.
Anyways keep an eye on him … cause this dude is going places….
CREEP are producers DJs Lauren Flax and Lauren Dillard and word on the street is that these ladies are currently working on their album.
Something we think you should be on the look out for … that is if it sounds anything like there latest single “You” featuring Nina Sky.
Somehow Ryan Leslie never achieved big commercial succes. While his sound is perfectly sitting between the commercial and underground he never got his big break. We at Strange Fruit headquarters love a lot of the stuff this man is doing. Here is a tune from the forthcoming Les Is More album. Let’s see if times are changing and Ryan gets the credits he deserves.
I can’t tell you what it is about this Trimonia track but I really dig tha sound. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s Sunday evening or just the idea that if Chuck Norris had a tune it would sound as sexy as this …

To me there is nothing more interesting than to hear an artist talk about the inspiration to his latest creation. The aforementioned is exactly what Raphael Saadiq’s beatifully crafted EPK is about … enjoy!!

If you google “Swizz Beatz Monster Mondays” without a doubt a lot of free downloadable music will come your way. Cause somewhere in October of 2010 Swizz Beatz launched his Monday series for no apparent reason at all.
Even though I’m not complaining none of his previous free downloads were juicy enough to actually blog about…until this one. Apparently the only one that couldn’t wait till Monday to be twittered into the world. After streaming I kinda get why he was so anxious to unleash this one upon us. There is no way you can go wrong when you have Musiq Soulchild on vocals. Just check it out ….

My thanx goes to Bama Love Soul for unleashing this awesome Sam Champ remix compilation into the world for FREE. Since “leaks’ were floating all over the net you might have some of these already.
Strangefruitmusicblog didn’t offer any of the leaks simply because we knew the full thing would drop soon and well isn’t better to have the full experience?! Anyways it’s up for grabs and very much worth the downloading effort ….so stream and enjoy!!

DOWNLOAD: COULTRAIN – WHILE SHE WAS SLEEPING
Dammn do I appreciate this gift!! If like me you live in the part of the world (Europe) where it’s cold and wet and very very windy. There is nothing like some good music with a soulful flow to keep you headnodding while you take a sip from your hot milk/tea/cocoa. I know that that is what I’ll be doing while listening to Mr. Coultrain’s awesome compilation.
If you have a “warm up” in mind that is less innocent than the abovementioned …. is good for that too. Anyways enjoy!!
Quadron covering Micheal Jacksons’ “Baby Be Mine” and making it their own.

I share this with mixed emotions. Even though I feel obliged to keep you updated on everything Cee Lo Green is up to … I do not know how I feel about Mrs Mendes’ vocal contribution to the track. But who cares … she looks hot!! Anyways the song was taken from the soundtrack of The Other Guys
