Download New Album by Pretty Lights – A Color Map Of The Sun for FREE

PrettyLights-AColorMapoftheSundefying artists Pretty Lights drops his new album A Color Map Of The Sun. He is using a similar marketing plan as  Radiohead with  2007 release In Rainbows

I love this guy for mentioning ANT of Atmosphere and Brother Ali fame being one of his favorite producers. Always wondered why more people don’t work with him. Guy is amazingly dope. Same goes for fellow 3 letter named producer KNO of CunninLynguists.

Check out the mashup album someone put together of Joe Budden’s Mood Muzik 3 and KNO beats, probably better than the original MM3 honestly, Joe Budden – Death Muzik (prod KNO)

Saturday night (7/6) @ 8pm the new project from Gorillaz creators Damon Albarn & Jamie Hewlett as well as director Chen Shi-Zheng , Monkey: Journey To The West debuts at New Yorks Lincoln Center. The show which had previousley only played in London and Paris, looks like a way cooler Cirque du Soleil with music and imagery from some of the most innovative minds of our generation, Gorillaz. I’ll be checking it out Sunday and will update this post with some pics and maybe video.

 

just for S&G

So it seems Timbaland was not exaggerating, he pretty much produced the bulk of the Magna Carta album

Also very excited to see my man Adrian Younge’s name pop up in the credits for sampling his songs, the first time I heard him I thought to myself man this would be great to sample. If you havent checked out his solo stuff DO THAT, also check out the album he produced for Ghostface Killah early this year

Magna Carta Holy Grail Tracklist:
01. Picasso Baby
02. Heaven
03. Versus
04. Tom Ford
05. Beach Is Better

07. Oceans

This is rumored to be the album cover my guess is this will be one of 2 covers, similar to J.Cole’s Born Sinner, with this maybe being the normal one and the other picture being the alternate (deluxe)?jay-z-magna-carta-holy-grail

one last interesting tidbit, according to Courtney Love, Jay-Z uses lyrics from Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit on the new album
