TNN walks right into June and things just continue to stay interesting and fruitful on the new music front. The big guns stay firing and there was grip of quality new new that dropped this past week. First up is a new heater from 2 Chainz ft. Travis Scott on the hook that’s continuing 2 Chainz’ foray into more psychedelic soundscapes. It’s also the first taste of his new studio album due very soon. Second, is a new one from the legendary Giorgio Moroder on a collaboration with Phantoms featuring vocals from the quickly rising Prince Charlez. Interesting peak time 2017 disco vibes here that are unexpectedly and really well done. Last up is a new one from A.Chal, who we featured some last year. His new EP is out now and yet again very on point. Peep all 3 in full below.
#TBT this week takes us back to last year’s June Rub Radio when we let the homie Steve1der take the wheels and essentially start last Summer for our monthly mix series. In typical fashion, he took it all over the genre and era map with cuts from Take 5, Mr. Carmack, Akinyele, Queen Latifah, POOLS, T.I. and so much more. Make sure and give this fantastic a revisit one the stream above or the download below.
FOTR this week is Khalil, our special guest for this month’s edition of The Rub coming up this Saturday at The Bellhouse. This London native is the co-founder of Livin Proof (LDN) and Back To Live (NYC) and is a relative master at weaving together a fusion of musical styles intended for dance floor utopia. He’s rocked Boiler Room, done mixtapes for Noisey and Highsnobiety, toured all over the world and played all the major club nights and spots like Output, Fabric, Plastic People, Jazz Cafe and more. You can get a taste of his versatility in his recent Central Avenue mix on his Mixcloud. Check that out below along with all his URLs. And don’t miss him on the set this Saturday at The Rub!

It’s Monday and you know what that means – new music! Miami’s Bruno Mali Kidd just dropped a new tape last week, M.A.D.E. His gruff, rapid-fire flow is complemented by features from Rick Ross, Raheem Devaughn and Ace Hood. Burial has a new EP coming out on 5/26. Both Subtemple and Beachfire are hypnotic ambient soundtracks to your next overdose. If this one is too deep for your tastes, try his remix of Goldie’s classic “Inner City Life” which dropped last month. Thes One and DJ Day have a new EP of groovy instrumental hip-hop and scratching recorded live, with the former on the MPC and the latter on the crossfader. It’s a free download, with vinyl to come. That about does it for today, but watch out for more new music on Rub Radio tomorrow!
TBT this week to 1995 and a very strong argument year for the “golden era” of rap. Like legitimately, there are too many classic tracks and albums that dropped in 1995 to justifiably mention. Featured here are forever anthems from Mobb Deep, Luniz, Bone Thugs, Biggie, ODB, Three 6 Mafia, Junior M.A.F.I.A, GZA, 2Pac and this track list gets ridiculous in a hurry. With this deft mix of 80+ tracks that absolutely matter, ’95 gets a proper shine in what was one of the most influential years in the history of hip-hop. Stream in full above and grab the download below as well.

FOTR this week is the LA forever homie, Thee Mike B. It is believed that he came up with the phrase “a dude among dudes” or at least is the first one fully embody it. He’s been a staple DJ and influencer on the west coast for eons and in recent years, he’s carved out a nice little niche with his Brillstein house music productions. Case in point is his fire new EP on Brobot just out last week. You can peep those vibes below as well as get linked with all the Brillstein socials. If you tight with Mike, he just had a birthday Monday as well. Happy Birthday boss. Hope it was as trill as humanly possible.
