We love waking up to new tunes like this one, it's always a very pleasant surprise. Master of vibes and as of late frequent Major Lazer & Snoop Lion collaborator has brought together the voice of Purity Ring, Megan James and Popcaan for a nice dancehall jam called "First Time". Try if out for yourself:

Super producer Rhys Adams is back again under his alias "YesKing" to release a second LP called "Re-Record Not Fade Away". This one is the follow up to the 2008 debut "Rock This World", which was co produced by Mark Rae (of Rae & Christian). What we have for you here is one of the album tunes called 'Devil Inside'. It's soulful and awesome and has a nice deep dub reggae vibe to it with some very lush and beautiful vocals as well. Give it a listen, and check out the rest of it here! Enjoy!
While we're at it, why not give a listen to this classic remix from YesKing of the timeless Amy Winehouse tune "You Know I'm No Good" featuring the one and only Ghostface Killah! This is the jam!

So last night, we saw Reincarnated, the documentary on how Snoop Dogg became Snoop Lion. It was incredible, taking us from Doggystyle, to Paid The Cost To Be The Boss, to this current album and everything in between. Snoop is a humble and thoughtful entity, looking to learn and evolve with the help of Rastafarianism and Jamaican culture. One of the many songs he works on in the course of the film is this one "No Guns Allowed" with his daughter Cori B, as well as producers Diplo, Dre Skull and Ariel Rechtshaid, as well as Angela Hunte, his wife Shante Broadus and Police drummer, Stewart Copeland. One thing about this tune is Snoop proclaims several times that it's not going to be a rap album, and then features Toronto MC, Drake on this one. Kind of out of left field, but we still dig it. Enjoy. And see that movie.
