Y Not Flow - Bonfires & Seashells (David Stewart Remix)

Last month I was introduced to a Hip-Hop crew from San Francisco called Y Not Flow, by a good friend of mine, Andy Sheldrake. Although I'd never heard their work before, I was blown away by their style, presence on the mic & raw talent from the moment I clicked play on their incredible 2011 mixtape 'Welcome To H.E.L.L. (Hears Every Last Lyric)'. Nothing about their music conforms to the norm and has a distinctive 90s old skool flavour to it, which is very reminiscent of groups such as Black Sheep, Brand Nubian & the whole Native Tongues posse. Another man who's fallen in love with their work is singer/songwriter David Stewart, who has decided to do a remix of 'Bonfires & Seashells', which is being streamed exclusively here for the next few days and is available for free download in the player below. David keeps the original vibe of the track intact, but adds his own unique style, with a brand new hook/chorus that sounds like an infectious piece of Swing from the 60s. On the surface YNF & David couldn't be further apart, but they have come together to bring us a completely fresh piece of music to bump; so hit the jump, click play/download and enjoy. Big year ahead for both acts.

The XX - Sunset (Jamie XX Edit)

Jamie XX takes one of my favourite tracks from The XX's sophmore album and gives it a subtle injection of Dance. This guy's work rate is second to none, and what he produces is never short of wonderful. Get it HERE.

Medrea - For Me (feat. Onza)

Bath-hailing Medrea yesterday took to his Soundcloud to upload an unfinished version of a collaboration with Onza, which takes the form of the irresistably funky "For Me". Employing some rather sexy vocals over an old-school bassline, this is yet another testament to why I've been so impressed with this kid's output as of late. Release date unknown but a properly good bit of music nonetheless.
