Gonjasufi – Candylane (Bayk’d Remix)

Ok I’m not gonna lie, I have no idea who Bayk’d is and neither does Google by the looks of it but this remix of Gonjusufi’s Candylane is doing the rounds, and it dropped into my inbox earlier. A hella nice glitchy, smooth, hip hop inspired beat that fits perfect with the vocals. Real good track this.

AUDIO: Bop Alloy – prePAIRED (2010)

Bop Alloy – Enjoy Yourself

Bop Alloy – Were There (feat. JsouL) -Remix-

Bop Alloy – Day in the Life (Instrumental)

We mentioned this album last year, but was just listening to it again, and I believe it deserves it’s own post, as it seems that it did not get attention needed…..11 tracks and it’s a “Name You Price” album, you could get it free or you could support the artists and help them, keeping on making this great music.
