GRIZ-Rebel-Era-album-artwork

After months of interminable wait, GRIZ is finally back with a brand new album. Rebel Era came out on Tuesday and has already received tons of love from the music blogosphere. It’s no different here at wλved, we’ve been patiently waiting for this since his last release a year ago. GRIZ never disappoints, his productions are heavily filled with bass and delicately soaked with funk. All together it adds up to a remarkable free album.

James Blake – Overgrown

James-Blake-Overgrown-Deluxe-Version

This album isn’t the freshest thing out there but it’s still fairly recent. Overgrown, which is James Blake‘s second album, came out in April of this year. We listened to it a few times already but we weren’t able to single out the best tracks so we decided to bring you some random tracks from the album. We highly recommend to get your dirty hands on this one; it’s one of those one click one play album.

For this week’s Flashback Friday we are going over Pharcyde‘s sophomore album. Labcabincalifornia was released in 1995, three years after their debut album Bizarre Ride II. The band was formed in the early 90’s in South Central Los Angeles. That area definitely gave birth to some of the greatest rappers of the old school era. Anyway, take a listen to some of our favorites and add this album to your library.
