Welcome to The Early Registration’s Submission Showcase Christmas Special-bonzana-kwanza-special thing. It’s been a while since a showcase has been uploaded so we’ll stockpile a lot into one Christmas and New Year edition of the column. Hooray!
Chri$ Born – 20 Freestyle
Detroit-native Chri$ Born has been featured a lot in this column, not only because we love him, but because he’s great at what he does. He’s back again with a new album, and a new freestyle to celebrate his 20th birthday, in which his production channels his inner Wondagurl/Eestbound combo, with bars and a flow similar to that of Tre Capital on his Gundam Part 2 project. Take a listen below and cop his new album through his Soundcloud.
Barons Of Hiddenhausen – Realm Of The Edge (V.2)
California-bedroom-space-pop project Barons of Hiddenhausen (that’s a mouthful) is here with Realm Of The Edge (V.2), a track from his Bedroom Edits EP. The track itself is well performed, with some great vocals and an almost grung-ey sound, blending sounds from Ricky Hil to Kurt Cobain, while instrumetally sounding like the El Vy project. Check it out below.
Mickey Blue – We Just Be
Canadian RnB singer Mickey Blue brings back the 90s with ‘We Just Be’, a guitar-strummed, laid-back and relaxedcut about, well, love, being beautiful and wanting to be with someone, featuring some magnificent yet deep vocals, mixed with some rapping between hooks too. A nice, warm track from this dude. Take a listen.
PillowTalk – Good Lovin’
Three-piece live band PillowTalk reimagines ‘If This World Were Mine’ by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, looping the outro vocals and adding a whole new instrumentation, making a jazz-frunk cut of the original song, with rolling drums and a smooth bassline, while a rhodes piano plays here and there. The vocals even get chopped here and there, quite a modern touch on such an old track. Really nice.
Terminé – Sideways (Roisto Remix)
Finnish producer Roisto remixes Termine’s ‘Sideways’, incorporating funk and disco elements, turning it into a dancefloor killer. From the sweet chords to the kick and snare combos, this remix is bound to get you moving your feet in one way or another. Check it out below.
