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).

Since Okayplayer already compared him to Miguel, Frank Ocean and Abel Tesfaye (the Weeknd) there is not much left to say except for enjoy the ride.

DOWNLOAD: DJ BLUE – CASADEI MIXTAPE 

Casadei, not only the name of the popular Italian musician, but a way to live a musical experience. The need to explore the new sound barriers and at the same time build on what the past has been and continues to be a source of inspiration …DJ Blue.

This mixtape is simply one of the best trips I have taken this year. From Goapele’s “Play” to Dirg Gerner’s “my Queen” there is a soulful blend that is laced with some sweet electronics and to spice it up … some Hiphop is included. Yep this is the flavah you’ld like to savour …

Since DJ Blue has already given the best description possible about his very well blended mixtape … there is absolutely nothing left to say …except for …ENJOY YOUR TRIP!!

FULL CRATE FEAT. DAVID SIMMONS – WITHOUT MY HEART (FREE DOWNLOAD) by Noggy

Guess it’s confession time. Cause the following smooth tune that will surely touch your heart … has been on repeat in my house for a few days now. After playing it for the umpteenth time i thought it was nice to share.

It’s Fullcrate doing what he does best …producing a tune with a laidback sound you’ll want to listen to over and over again. This time he got a little vocal assistance from the very talented Kansas City native  David Simmons.

DOWNLOAD: SINDEN X JESSE BOYKINS – IN HIGH DEMAND EP

I didn’t hesitate to retweet soolcrooner Jesse Boykins a few days ago when he presented ‘In High Demand”. Just like I know this Sinden x Jesse Boykins collab is a must share.

At the time I wasn’t aware of the fact that this was just one of 4 tracks of the “In High Demand” Ep. It is safe to say that the  “Brenmar remix” seems to be everybody’s favorite , since this freebee has surfaced on quite few blogs already.

Best is to stream the whole EP and decide which “In High Demand” suits you ..

DOWNLOAD: AMP LIVE – YOU ARE NOT HUMAN (THE LOVE EP)

Very appreciative of this free download by Amp Live. Love the predominantly jazz infused glitchy beats with a little Hip Hop here and there.

It’s been a while since “Murder at the Discotech” and I’m pleased to see that he’s moved on to something a little less obvious and a bit more experimental. This Ep has a lot of pleasant surprises.

DOWNLOAD: EXILE – INTRO TO THE OUTRO MIXTAPE 

Yep we are hitting you up with a genuine neck breakah. Cause once tha beat drops tha headnodding does not stop.

But most of you knew some serious hip hop was coming your way as soon as you saw ..”Exile”. Last time we heard from Exile he had fans on the edge of their seat with his AM/FM release cause the (at the time) free load  “Radio Remixes” already sounded to good to be free.

I am happy to announce he is back and on the 4th of October Exile’s latest will drop. The selfproduced rap album is named “4TRAK MIND” and will be released via Soul Spazm & Dirty Science.

Of course Exile wouldn’t be Exile if he didn’t offer a little sumthin sumthin to whet your appetite and Strangefruitmusicblog wouldn’t be Strangefruitmusicblog if we didn’t hit you up with Exile’s Intro to the Outro …

PLACE TO BE: LIVE FROM NEW ZEALAND ON THE 15 OF JULY!! by Noggy

DOWNLOAD: LIVE FROM NEW ZEALAND 

There is only one place to be on the 15th of July and that is Melkweg, Amsterdam. On that particular Friday you’ll be introduced to best New  Zealand’s got to offer when it comes to electronic soul, hiphop & funk.

Even if you are not familiar with any of the artists in this line up … you’ll experience
maximum pleasure at a price I consider to be minimum damage.  Cause everyone from Ladi6 to Electric Wire Hustle will most definitely give you your moneys worth!!

Before you start reading the first thing you should know is that EDI productions presents a FREE DOWNLOAD promo EP for the L!VE FROM NEW ZEALAND party @ the Melkweg, Amsterdam on July 15th. Reason for all this info ? … Because I’ve added a stream to this post and I would suggest you just press play and start streaming while you read this …

Ladi6 feat. Parks & Julien Dyne
A sultry voice with razor sharp wit and a stage show to match, Ladi6 is New Zealand’s leading hip-hop soul artist and in her own right. She is renowned for her energetic live performances, sublime soulful vocals and conscious lyrics. Bringing us soulful hiphopwith a funkin’ reggae edge. Ladi6 just released her 2nd album, The Liberation
Off…. Ladi6 is accompanied by partner dj, musician, producer and singer Parks.

Julien Dyne is a multi-talented artist – a top New Zealand drummer, producer and
visual artist. Since his selection for the Red Bull Music Academy in Rome in 2004 Julien has been working with international artists and forging his own unique sound as a producer.  Mr. Dyne has a special place in my heart ever since I’ve heard “Layer” which is one the best tracks on his debut Pins and Digits.

Electric Wire Hustle developed their own sound and twist on modern hip-hop psychedelic and soul music. EWH reach while referencing the main points of music past thick drums and percussion layers of synth lines hints of Fender Rhodes and nylon stringed guitar, the neck snapping while the ear tap into his soulful vocals. The aforementioned is taken from one of the countless bio’s on the net and is most definitely tha truth!! But if you happen to be familiar with lead singer Mara TK’s
voice and know that the very talented Benny Tones is their official sound tech you probably already have your ticket.

Producer, Dj and audio engineer, Benny Tones is a talent you have to keep an eye on. Not only because he is part of Electric Wire Hustle but I consider him an artist in his own right. Don’t believe me?! Just get a taste of his latest Chrysalis when you click here.

I’m gonna level with you when it comes to Isaac Aesili. He happens to be on of  New Zealand’s talents I am not familiar with…yet. But after some research on this trumpet player, producer, vocalist and Dj … I know his electronofied Soul/Funk/RnB/Jazz sound is one you should get acquainted with.

Last But not least the Pacific Riders Dj’s plan to shower everybody with contagious basslines, bleeps, rhythms and beats.

Dammnn … talk about a youngster with an old soul … Anthony Anderson a.k.a Tope happens to be just that. He managed to pick all the right old soulful beats and gave them an authentical Tope makeover.

Usually I’m not to crazy about beattapes but this FRSH SLCTS WKND BEATS #7 production by Tope called “FREELEMONADE” is hard to ignore. You can stream the video below but it’s simply not enough to give you the right feel. For samples and a free copy of “FREELEMONADE” click here.
