MTs Awaits…

Today’s post is a taster of things to come. As of Wednesday Charlie, “Charmillionaire” Kirk (the younger half of gifted duo Le Croc Monsieur) will be taking up a weekly resident slot here at MTHQ. Charmillionaire has a serious ear when it comes to finding new music, & true to MTs, will be bringing only the highest calibre of tracks. Just to whet the appetite; a little of what to expect…

Snoop who?

More sunshine infused tunes coming your way straight from MTs HQ this afternoon. First up is La La La, by Snoop Lion, and produced by our friends Major Lazer. If Snoop Lion sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because he’s the reggae alter-ego of a certain Snoop Dogg. A great debut into the genre from Snoop.

La La La reminds me a lot of an old favourite, Eek-a-mouse. Not to be confused with his clean cut namesake Rastamouse, Eek has been dominating the rodent-Rastafarian scene for many years now. With calssics such as Ganga Smuggling and Rude Boy Jamaican it’s not difficult to see why.

Lastly, G Eazy has released a new track. How he manages to keep producing such quality at the rate he does is beyond me. But he manages, and he’s even got a new album coming soon – needless to say I’m excited.

King of the Beach

The sun is finally out, and as if on cue Viceroy has released a remix of the summer-time classic Gettin’ Jiggy With It. When I first heard Viceroy was remixing the Will Smith track I was almost worried. You’ve got the most beachy producer in the game remixing a track that has summer in its DNA; could this be just too tropical? Well, fear not for the man behind the superlative-defying Back To Cali has delivered yet again with another scorcher of a track. To be enjoyed only in the sun.

Le Croc Revisited

A couple of weeks back I was giving Le Croc Monsieur some mad hype for their debut gig at the Brixton Jamm. Needless to say they delivered in a big way, with one of the finest track selections I have ever heard. That is all I’m going to say on the subject, just listen and enjoy. Track list is below & I’ve highlighted a few personal favourites. Don’t forget to give the duo some love.

BCB – Virgin Mix

 

It’s been a little bit quiet here at MTs HQ as of late, but tunes have been sourced and they’re ready to be dropped. First up though is a virgin mix from one half of Megabeans – Bean Count Boost. It’s a classy affair; high calibre tracks & some flawless mixes. Tracks are listed below. Give the lad some love and expect some more mixes soon.  But why the girl in the photo? Why the fuck not?
