Get your EDC tickets before they sell out! The first ticket release sold out within a few hours and this will probably be the last chance to get these tickets at face value.
We’re currently thinking about opening up our own ticket store, possibly a stubhub rival where we let users buy and sell tickets (with much lower fees involved) or possibly just a store where we sell tickets at a discount to the going stubhub rate. Feel free to comment with suggestions because here at YGM, we hate the stubhub fee’s (10 % buyers, 15 % sellers) just as much as you do.
Odd Future has also been melting pot of different influences and ideas so wide ranging and sometimes obscure, that its surprising The Internet, comprised of producer/vocalists Syd The Kyd AKA Frisco TSC and Matt Martians, hadn’t arrived earlier. Drawing from neo-soul, trance and hefty doses of late 90′s/early 2000′s Timbaland/Neptunes production, Purple Naked Ladies is perfect as either and enhancement to or a substitute for a narcotic soaked evening. Tracks like “Gurl” (featuring Pyramid Vritra, aka Hal Williams, Matt Martian’s partner in the Jet Age of Tomorrow) and “Web of Me” are perfect for some wired navel gazing, while a song like ”Lincoln”, featuring what would be a scene stealing verse from Mike G if it wasn’t for OF’s multi-talented maverick Left Brain singing the hook sounding like Curtis Mayfield, might give way to some freakish voodoo mama acid dancing if you trill like that. And you could still bump it in the whip. Hit the jump to read on.
For those of you that follow Odd Future, the name Vince Staples should only bring about good memories. He’s stolen the show on several OF/OF affiliated tracks and is poised to become a major name in the underground if he stays this consistent. In fact, his only real peer lyrically is Earl Sweatshirt himself, with whom he rapped alongside on Earl’s classic “epaR”. Vince raps in a wheezy deadpan and his lyrics are chock full of bitter hood stories and laced with teenage angst and gun fetishism. Hit the jump to read on and download the mixtape. Read more
Main Attrakionz and the rest of their Green Hova crew have made a name for themselves this past year with their spacey production and breezy yet not devoid of emotion lyrics, now known as “Cloud Rap”. Just yesterday, while everyone was spending time with their family, the half of Main Attrakionz known as Sqaudda B dropped his second solo outing, the Back Selling Crack mixtape.
Featuring guests like insane person/rapper of the year Danny Brown, fellow Main Attrakionz soldier Mondre M.A.N, and Green Hova’s resident double-time spitter Shady Blaze, as well as production from Nem270, YS, Juney June, and Squadda himself. For those familiar with his work, this is another excellent tape full of glitchy samples, moments of humble inspiration, and lots of stoned metaphors. For those new to the sound, check out past releases on their band camp. It’s almost all for free.
