billy woods - "Groundhogs Day"

New TrackstheneedledropComment

billy woods has shared the lead single and video from Known Unknowns, the follow-up to 2015's Today, I Wrote Nothing. That album was woods' most abstract project to date, but with "Groundhogs Day" we seem to be picking up more where his 2013 album, Dour Candy, left off. Blockhead is even back to doing most of the production, and contrary to (un)popular belief, I do not hate him at all.

Known Unknowns drops June 9 via Backwoodz Studioz.

Willie Green - "The Majii" ft. Denmark Vessey

New Trackstheneedledrop1 Comment

New York producer Willie Green has a new instrumental version of last year's Doc Savage out now on Bandcamp. You might be familiar with his work with Backwoodz Studioz mastermind Billy Woods, and he's now dropping a music video for one of the project's grimiest cuts: "The Majii." The track features an animalistic performance from Detroit's Denmark Vessey, and a kooky beat with metallic tones flying in every direction. You can hear the track's instrumental below (along with the album's other instrumentals), and if you've yet to hear Doc Savage in full, you can stream that here as well.

Premiere: ELUCID - "Wake Up Dead Man" (Milo Remix)

Back in April, New York hip hop artist ELUCID released his revelatory third album, Save Yourself, through Backwoodz Studioz. Above, you can hear a remix of the project's penultimate track courtesy of Milo. If there's any rapper/producer thoughtful enough to pull off this remix, it's Milo, so we're stoked to debut it.

Hope you dig it; if so, check out the album here:
