Flosstradamus Traps It Out In Seattle, WA (Review)

Click to Re-up

If you were out and about around SoDo at the start of this week, you Seattle hasn’t see a night like Monday in quite a while. Trap superstars Flosstradamus and GTA took over the Showbox for the first stop of their HDYNATION Tour and the sh** got wild fast. We greeted by them to a daytime weed warehouse tour by Dama Cannabis Products (stay posted for the video, kids). Curt was very stoked abput the CBD hash oil pens we had. Then we dropped them off at their venue for a sold-out house of Seattle’s most committed ragers, already well warmed up by Curtis Williams and the Two-9 collective, the boys took the stage and proceeded to steadily kill it for the next several hours.   20141017-20141017-860A8136   Genre blending was the order of the night, with Floss dropping everything from trap classics to electro-house and hardstyle, all to the HDY Nation’s hearty approval. Highlights included a new mashup of Diplo’s Revolution and RL Grime’s Tell Me, as well as a new supah-hot-fiyah collab with Troy Boi set to drop later this year.   20141018-20141018-860A8203 Josh and Curt’s showmanship was top notch (as per usual), and with their stage setup of corrugated metal, chainlink fence, and a broken down Ford, Floss managed to conjure their own Post-Apocalyptic-Plurnt-Up universe within the confines of the packed club. Within the current trend for trippy lightshows, the grime felt oddly refreshing. (Also be on the lookout for their use of shadow in their projections. It’s groovy.)   20141018-20141018-860A8342   Summed up- Monday was wild. Congratulations if you attended, if not, you should’ve been there. But the good news is that the HDYNATION Tour will be visiting a city near you, and getting better every step of the way. Get your tickets soon, and until the show be on the lookout for a recap album dropping via Empty Planet Productions and The-Re-Up.com Written by Lucien Blakemore

Exclusive Interview: Azizi Gibson at Red Bull Sound Select 30 Days In LA

Click to Re-up

AD: So im here with Azizi Gibson at the the Red Bull Sound Select opening for Chance the Rapper. How you doin today man?   AG: Im doing excellent and yourself?   AD: Doin’ good, enjoying this West Coast weather. Much better than the East Coast cold right now.   AG: Don’t let that shit psyche you out though, it’s still flu season   AD: Yeah you gotta be careful. You don’t want to mix it up with that ebola shit   AG: Aw man, don’t even get me started...First question   (Laughs)   AD: How does your style of music differ from what’s out there today? There’s a lot of over saturation in the hip-hop scene, how do you feel about that?     AG: I think that im focused on getting rap out of the box it’s in. Everyone says they wanna do something different but they still decide to rap about the same bullshit….not bullshit but just the same thing over and over because I still listen to stuff I wouldn’t make like Young Thug, I still support Wayne and Drake but i’m just trying to make something different. I’m trying to have that rocker attitude of not being afraid to try anything   AD: I like that it’s good to take your influences and push from there. What’s your take on Brainfeeder?   AG: Before I even was signed to Brainfeeder I used to take trains from the DMV to New York to go see [Flying Lotus] shows. That’s basically the answer to that question. BF has always been there and helped me grow. What they’re doing is genesis and it will go down in history.   AD: Shoutout to “You’re Dead”   AG: Definitely   AD: So what was your experience growing up in the DMV? We’re from there too and it’s definitely a different place. The art is almost oppressed and it’s a difficult subject   AG: It really is difficult because I can’t deny the love I have for MD, and my friends over there, but I moved to LA because I wouldnt be able to live the lifestyle I live over there. Not to put my city down, I just think they’re focused on other things and it wasn’t right for me so I had to move over here.   AD: I totally understand that, I did the same thing. You have to leave and go get some different influences that way you can take all of your experiences and make it into something unique. So  what do you wanna tell us about your latest project?   AG: Backward books...I love it. I love all my projects but this one is the one I put more of myself into and I’ll leave it at that. I want you to experience it for yourself because i feel like this project is the most relatable one that I’ve released. I do appreciate the audience’s take on it so I know what to change, not in myself but constructive criticism is allowed. If you can’t take criticism then you’re living wrong.   AD: I know the title is kind of manga related…   AG: Oh it’s most definitely manga related! The project itself is a mang; It starts at the end and it finishes where it begins. I love manga because I grew up in Thailand half my life. Like, I knew about Goku before I knew about Batman, so that’s the best way to describe my childhood, you know what i’m saiyan? Shoutout Naruto.   AD: (Laughs) Alright man, well it’s been great talking to you. Go kill that set.   AG: No, problem man I’m glad you reached out to me!

Fresh off his killer contribution to Young Thug’s “Old English” single, Gangsta Gibbs is back with more heat. This time he’s linked up with legendary Rap-A- Lot producer Mike Dean (Tupac, Kanye West, UGK, etc.) to do exactly what the fuck Gibbs does, which is spit raps about “Sellin Dope”.

Loudpvck Trap mainstays LOUDPVCK recently gave us a tripped out flip of A$AP Rocky’s latest release, “Multiply”. The duo handled this track more delicately than usual, opting for a slower, syrup inspired remix as opposed to the festival trap sound they are known for. Nevertheless, the track goes hard enough to bang down your block and make you feel like a boss. Check it out below, and grab a free download from their Soundcloud.
