Mac Miller’s estate gave its blessing for the release of the song  saying: “We’re honored to share this beautiful song that Malcolm created with Robert Glasper with the world. Anyone that followed Malcolm’s career closely is already aware of the respect he held for Robert’s work. The song is the product of the friendship the two shared and perfectly encapsulates the musical gifts of both Malcolm and Robert.”

MIKE nuthin i can do is wrng

“It’s big fucking MIKE”.

It’s always a good day when MIKE drops. ‘nuthin i can do is wrng‘ doesn’t break new ground for the rapper. It follows the same mazy, soul-sampled formula that pushed him to the fore. However, it’s another step towards becoming the undisputed master of the sound.


D*mp MIDNIGHT SUN Feat. Paul Gabriel Banks

D*mp is searching for meaning in the wee hours on ‘MIDNIGHT SUN.’ Breaks, spoken word and distant vocals coalesce in a thought-provoking single ahead of his forthcoming EP.

Liv.e’s new release is a walking paradox, and we’re here for it. Breaks and spectral shrieks make for a track that’s laidback and unsettling all at once.
