Also, download this tape below.  It dropped back last fall, but I’m just now listening to it and I’m really enjoying it, thus I’m passing it on to you.  A$AP Rocky has great production and he flows real real nice to it.

Here’s a sample:

Childish Gambino Visits South Beach

Donald Glover finally made it to Miami?!

Time to celebrate.

Yesterday was my second time seeing Childish Gambino, this first time I had to make the 4 hour trek to Orlando to see him.  You can read about that here if you’d like your memory refreshed.  Last night he was at the Fillmore in South Beach.  Luckily, I was able to sneak in my camera.

Danny Brown opened.  I had heard of him.  He’s definitely different and has his own style.  I like this song of his:

(Turn on the lights Fillmore, gosh) I just can’t handle song after song by him.  Having said that, I’ll probably download the Detroit native’s mixtapes.

Man, Mr. Glover’s show did not disappoint, in fact, I’d dare to say it was even better than the last.  He brought even more energy and so did his band, which really made the difference.  The crowd was going crazy.  See below. Sadly, I also realized I might need a new camera soon, she can’t handle bass like she used to.  😦

He even preformed a remix of the ever popular ‘Rack City’ (below).   Something tells me that’ll be on his mixtape coming up titled ….Mixtape.  He also preformed the intro to it “We Ain’t Them”.

This time, Childish even had a fancy backdrop for his stage.  Trees, better lighting, and better speakers… No offense Orlando.  Having said that, this performance seemed to have a lot more jailbait running around.  Childish definitely has the 16-19 age bracket on lock in South Florida…more like 18-22, but whats the difference?  I still felt like a AARP member.  Either way, I still enjoyed the show.

So now we wait.  Wait for his mixtape ‘Mixtape’ to drop so we can all enjoy some more free Childish Gambino.  Until then, I’ll leave you with one more video, Heartbeat, which is probably my most favorite song on his last album, Camp.

See you at Lollapalooza Mr. Glover.

DKA out.

 

 



Childish Gambino “We Ain’t Them”

Just saw this song and these photos posted over at Childish Gambino’s blog IAmDonald.com, thought I’d share them with you kind folks.  It appears this will be the first song on his new mixtape….titled errrr ‘Mixtape’.  Looking forward to that tape.

Sidebar: Wonder what the thought is behind using Drake as the poster.   Anywho, can’t wait to see him again in June in the 305.

Yup, looks like Danner just got a new album to listen to on his plane ride back to the mitten (…along w/ Common’s The Dreamer, The Believer, however this one is free.)

The Weeknd drops his 3rd mixtape of the year just in time for the holidays, ‘Echoes of Silence’.  I’ve been telling you about him since Bendey first put me on.  So catch up.  Here and Here.  The dude is gonna impregnate your radio stations before you know it.

First song is a remix of The King, Michael Jackson’s Dirty Diana.  Fire.  Go Download it now and thank me later, #NoDrake.

Wow.

So much emotion and passion.  The last track on the tape, Echoes of Silence, really hits home.

Thank you Abel Tesfaye, aka, The Weeknd.

Also, on a lighter note, I should have posted this when it came out, but better late than never right?  The homie, Mike Posner released a stellar mixtape that has been on heavy rotation for me and everyone else that has it.

I could name my own favorite tracks, but you’ll find your own.  My deepest apologies for being so late to a guy that let me interview him.  Smh at myself.

(a douchey opportunity for me to post this)

If you really wanna do your DKA Life research, you can read my interview and show review here.

I also still gotta post my 2nd visit to Art Basel sometime.

Alright, I need to get to bed.  Can’t wait for Friday to meet up with great people.

With love,

Daniel

You all loved his Figure 8 song remixed by Gigamesh that was featured on #Playlistings.  Well here is a free mixtape he dropped off about a week ago.  After a few listens, I think you guys are really going to enjoy his work.  He’s got a hipster vibe and rocks out some hiphop and it works.  He even has a feature from the homie XV.  Dude can sing too.

This music is the exact “pick me up” I you needed for your week.  Enjoy.

Frank Ocean ‘Nostalgia, Ultra’ Mixtape

–Per request of avid DKA Life reader RauchER!

Bendey had this mixtape on blast non-stop during spring break, and for good reason too.  Sadly, I never took the time to give it its own post and share it with you, shame on me.  Frank Ocean is/has already blown up with his single “Novacane”.  He will also be featured on two tracks on Kanye and Jay-Z’s ‘Watch the Throne” album due this August. (I’m giddier than a school girl for that to drop)

Download HERE via Dat Piff

1. frank ocean – street fighter (0:22)
2. frank ocean – strawberry swing (3:55)
3. frank ocean – novacane (5:02)
4. frank ocean – we all try (2:51)
5. frank ocean – bitches talkin’ (0:22)
6. frank ocean – songs for women (4:13)
7. frank ocean – lovecrimes (4:00)
8. frank ocean – goldeneye (0:18)
9. frank ocean – there will be tears (3:14)
10. frank ocean – swim good (4:16)
11. frank ocean – dust (2:33)
12. frank ocean – american wedding (7:00)
13. frank ocean – soul calibur (0:18)
14. frank ocean – nature feels (3:43)

I’m pretty sure he got signed and this is going to be a full-fledged album now.  Its funny how record companies aren’t even needed today to be successful.  But I’ll save that for a later time, in a post that will never exist because I’m too lazy.

If you wonderin’ who this guy is.  Here’s his video for his single “Novacane”.  You’ll hear it on the radio soon enough…if you haven’t already.

Here’s a newer track that dropped a couple weeks ago. Dreamkilla <–click to download

Enjoy.
