Zach Farlow – Pullin Up (Prod. Deafh) [Audio]

Atlanta, GA – Who’s next? Well friends, that would be Zach Farlow with his latest single “Pullin Up.” Hailing from the ATL and representing Special Ent., this young MC has been taking the scene by storm right in the heart of hip-hop – New York City.

After spending a week in New York at the beginning of June, I noticed a common trend from club to club, that trend was none other than Zach. Now I’m not talking any club; The Griffin, Opus Lounge, 1OAK – there’s levels to this. Special Ent. is out here moving, putting Zach on front and centre to perform this Deafh-produced hit for the likes of Chris Brown, Drake and (Roc Nation’s) Von Smith.

Don’t let the boyish good looks fool you, this cat has got HEAT. I’ll admit that at first glance, even I was taken aback by the power behind those pipes. In my humble opinion, it’s only a matter of time until you see Zach’s name up in lights around the globe. If you don’t believe me now, you just might when you check out “Pullin Up” below.

Dirty Harry – The Condo (Prod. Melrose Zee) [Audio]

Calgary, AB – Young lord Dirty Harry just hit us with his latest offering titled “The Condo” off his forthcoming project, The Learning Curve 3.

“The Condo” is about being posted up alone in the condo. Being alone has kind of become Harry’s thing lately. He’s doing some work in Edmonton right now and he’s staying in a condo. And he’s away from his Calgary kin. I mean, he’s not entirely alone. Because he stays working with some of my favourite cats (shout-out to Fingaz, Pleuto, New’L, and all you guys!). But Harry’s rolling with the whole lonely thing right now. Remember his last release? Yeah. That’s two songs in a row about Lonely Harry.

Harry comes into this track over top of a spacey cloud trap Melrose Zee beat. Which I was super stoked to see. Melrose Zee has done a lot of production for Harry and I’m a huge fan of the dude’s work. He fuses spacey psychedelic cloud rap melodies with hard-hitting trap drum lines. That’s why it’s cloud trap.

Allan Rayman – The Bird & The Cage [Audio]

Toronto, ON – A few weeks ago, Allan Rayman released a new three-part song titled “The Bird & The Cage.”

In case you missed it, Allan recently dropped his Hotel Allan project and as far as I’m concerned, he’s a musical legend demigod. He’s got this moody blues-hip-hop-R&B sound that can only be described as Allan Rayman.

He’s taken on the role of the loner, so his music always has a hauntingly lonely undertone. There’s always some sort of void that Allan seems to be scratching at. So trust when I say this is one of the most complex audio gems I’ve come across this year.

Allan delivers an extensive three-part song titled “The Bird & The Cage.” The track alternates between dialogue skits and music tracks. For the record: you have to listen to it all, and in the order it was received. No skipping anything over. Okay? Check it out.
