Beastie Boys – Root Down [Cyclist Disco Mix]

BBoys x Cyclist

“OH MY GOD THAT’S THE FUNKY SHIT”

It’s not an easy task to take one of the baddest, grittiest, funkiest Beastie Boys tracks of all time & turn it into a balls out/tits out Disco classic.  But, with a bassline that the late, great Mr. Adam Yauch would’ve been proud of, that’s exactly what Cyclist has done with the classic Beastie Boys track “Root Down”.

Never let you down with the stereo sound
Cyclist get on the mix & TURN IT OUT

Sango x Goldlink – Wassup


If you follow Soulection or Sango in general you’ve heard this massive beat before, Sango flips Timbaland’s “Indian Flute” and adds that extra bass that only compliments the flute sample oh so well. Patiently we waited and waited for a rapper to jump on this heavy beat and finally we get Goldlink who is the perfect choice to flow over it. Stream above!

*ATTENTION ALL VANCITY CATS: Sango & A-G-O’s Waldo are hitting up Fortune Sound Club May 24th for their Finally Tour! Get tickets at Highlife, Zulu, DIPT, Red Cat, Beat Street or online here.

Tom Misch – White Label Release: 008


Tom Misch is an 18 year old producer, singer from London that has been putting out music through his Soundcloud for over a year now. What makes this cat’s music stand out is his pure talent, most of what you hear from his music is himself on the guitar, piano or even violin with only a few Jazz samples here and there. It was only a matter of time until Soulection released such an exquisite White Label Release with the young talented musician, this is the type of music that are the roots for the LA label. Tom is currently working on his first EP so keep an eye out for it, stream or download this above!
