Fly.Union – Close Doors, Open Windows (2008)[Mixtape] + Music Video

Hosted by the indieground God mixtape DJ, Mick Boogie, Close Doors, Open Windows is personally my first glimpse into the up & coming Ohio group, Fly.Union. I’ve previously listened to some of the tracks from the mixtape on Myspace and peeped the video for Big Trucks, and I must admit this entire mixtape has the possiblity of making it until my ipod. Composed of group members, Jerreau (MC), L.E. (MC), JSwifa (Producer), and Eyeon (Producer), the collective has managed to create an interesting sound in which old school & new school mesh to make something which appeals to the old heads, but is viably radio-friendly. While remaining conscious even on tracks with titles like “Big Trucks” the group always has enough swagger to make you feel like you’re listening to a top 40 radio station. Lil’ Wayne like flows, Cool Kids like production, Kidz in the Hall like lyrics… what a Fly.Union. Peep the video for the “Big Trucks” and d/l the mixtape after the jump.

Charles Hamilton – And Then They Played Dilla (2008)[Mixtape]

Dilla + Charles Hamilton. Remixed beats, new lyrics. I’ve been up all night waiting on this joint to drop, so just peep it already. If you’re unfamiliar with Charles Hamilton, all you need to know is down to earth ass producer/MC from Harlem who (at such a young age) is set to change the game for 2009. This is one in a series of mixtape he’s dropping in a very limited amount of time. Right now I’d usually tell you who dude sounds like but, yo, it’s 2:30 in the fucking morning. Just download the motherfucking mixtapes and give shouts to CH here and if you want to hear more of his mixtapes in the ongoing series check out this page for a listing.

Kid Cudi – A Kid Named Cudi (2008)[Mixtape]

Kid Cudi (aka The Man On The Moon) has been getting a lot of buzz lately for his unique blend of hip-hop and bit of electronica as well as his co-sign from big named cats like Kanye West & Pharell. If you like acts like The Cool Kids, Wale, & Jay Electronica you’ll probably love dude and if you’re into acts like Santogold & MIA you’ll be able to appreciate what this cat does as well. Peep the mixtape (if you’re late enough to not have downloaded it until now), and when his debut LP drops, cop it.
