An experiment in cultural exchange and sampling, respective music collectives Astro Nautico and INNIT/Day Tripper Records have collaborated on a transpacific project which finds 7 members of Astro Nautico sampling Kurosawa’s “The Seven Samurai” to create a track and conversely, 7 members of Japan-based INNIT flipping sounds found in the westernized version of the same film, “The Magnificent Seven”. - Astronautico.com
Astro Nautico – Space Ghost – Always
Very, very, unique hip hop track from ex-A$AP Mob member, Dominic Lord. Can’t wait to hear more from this dude.
I never thought I’d see this collaboration but here it is, Heems of Das Racist and Small Black. Apparently this is just one of two tracks they did together off of the new Small Black mixtape due out November 11th. We’ll keep you posted as soon as it drops.

Toronto based all-time game strengthener The Weeknd is up to something else. I’d be lying if I said tracks off of House of Balloons aren’t still on my mixtapes. Grab the new hot shit here, FREE. Check out a new jam as well as one of my favorites from the last EP below.
Life Of The Party
House Of Balloons – Glass Table Girls
Our boys from up north are back at it. We’re loving what we’re hearing (as usual). Download their new album Punch Perm for free. If you don’t already have it, grab Sasquatch Bury their Dead too. Both highly recommended.
We rarely cover hip hop on BH, not because we aren’t fans but because the genre has been rather boring and repetitive lately. We can’t hate on this one bit though. Be sure to check out Pusha and Tyler’s antics in the video too.
Trouble On My Mind
We give a lot of credit to the cleverly coined subgenre PBR&B. With acts like How to Dress Well, James Blake, The Weeknd, and Jamie Woon, we’re hearing a lot of interesting stuff coming out the genre. Odd Future is invading the hip hop world and flipping it on it’s ass right now. Frank Ocean, a member of Odd Future, fits in really nicely with the rest of the PBR&B scene. His mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra is going to be re-released on July 26th and it’s pretty hot. Keep up with him via tumblr here.
It’s always a treat to hear some new Das Racist stuff. Here’s a FREE compilation of dope ass unreleased tracks as well as some rad remixes. Throw this on at your next party and get wild with the most unique dudes in Hip Hop right now. File this under SWAG.
