I've always been a big fan of The Dream's unique style of R&B but it's been a few years since I heard something solid from him. I'm really liking this new track "High Art" featuring Jay-Z. It's still uptempo but it's a little slower than the dance beats you hear in R&B these days which is a nice change. I could see this doing well on the radio but even if it doesn't, I'll be bumping it this summer....

You probably know by now that I am a big fan of Native Instrument's Traktor and the new Trakor DJ app. I posted my thoughts and review here and here. We knew it was just a matter of time, but NI has already released a new iPhone version and it's almost as good as the iPad version.
I downloaded it earlier today and played with it for a bit and everything was almost exactly the same so I was able to use it right away without any learning curve. The smaller screen size can be a challenge but they did a great job of utilizing the space they had without losing any of the functionality. You have the ability to zoom in to each deck separately which makes it feel a little more reasonable.
It will probably be best for cueing tracks, practicing mixes and just getting a general feel for a tracklist but I could still see myself making a mix on it since it has the record function and everything else you would need. I just love that I have the option to use both the iPad and iPhone version when I don't have time or space to set up the normal computer and deck set up. This is going to be fun...

I'm giving serious points here for creativity and execution. The pass should actually get more points than the dunk but when you put them both together, this is one of the better dunk contest slams I've seen in a long time. Pat the Roc was the dude who threw it down and this took place at the “CRL Good Life Foundation Celebrity Game”, whatever that is.

Here's some more new shit, while I'm at it...
I haven't been posting new music lately because frankly, I haven't heard much that caught my attention because most of it has been pure garbage. However, I've been a big fan of B.o.B.'s "We Still in this Bitch" for awhile now and I just stumbled across the video so I thought I'd throw it up. This beat goes hard in the ride. Bass is dope!!!
