Welcome back to our beloved Weekly Set-series. It is safe to say that the last week was a little bit slow on new releases, leaks and interviews. However, two recording highlights have hit us late last weekend. We’ve seen Lupe Fiasco reinterpreting Rick Ross’ “B.M.F.”, thus pushing the anticipation for his forthcoming Lasers to new heights. More surprisingly even, we’ve been blessed by a previously unreleased song by the one and only Lauryn Hill. Luckily, “Repercussions” indicate that the legendary Ms. Hill has not lost any of her energy. It remains to be seen if a full fledged comeback follows this record. Taking a 180°-turn we find promising young artist Bruno Mars, who started the promotional campaign for his solo debut LP with the soulful cut “Just The Way You Are”. But the past seven days also brought us unexpected collaborations, such as the noisy Mix Version of “New Noise” by Bloody Beetroots and Steve Aoki. Anyone familiar with the sounds of these two artists knows that this one’s a trip. On the rap-sphere we found Indiana’s Freddy Gibbs uniting with the talents of Chuck Inglish, Chip Tha Ripper, Bun B & Dan Auerbach on the quest for “Oil Money”.
Further efforts were provided by newcomer Bei Major and the always stunning Keri Hilson, UK dubstep aficionado Skream and La Roux, Passion Pit, Diplo and Don Diablo as well as Kele. Tune in for the audible recap below.
