This new AraabMUZIK track “The Prince Is Coming” is too good to ignore. It’s off his new mixtape For Professional Use Only. It features a dark tense beat that sounds massive when blasted at maximum volume. Haven’t gotten into his work until this track, but this is too cool to ignore.
“Molly Ringwald” is the single from Danny Brown & Araabmuzik that they worked on together for Yours Truly’s songs from scratch session. It is going to be released this week as a 7″ single via Yours Truly’s Love Letters Ink imprint.
The combination between the duo results in a fiery high-energy track. Grab a mp3 below.
For just one man with a lot of buttons and ability, AraabMUZIK is able to really get the crowd into things. His set got even wilder when he was joined by a whole crew of people as over-hyped 16-year-old rapper Chief Keef came on stage to perform that song that you probably know, without knowing it. If not, you may as well familiarize it on your own terms.
Not really my style of music,Â but considering it’s just one guy doing his beats on stage, it was interesting to watch.
Yours Truly and Adidas Originas brought Danny Brown and Araabmuzik together for their “Songs From Scratch” documentary series. The two wrote a new song titled “Molly Rangwald”, on the spot and it will later be recorded on a 7″ on Yours Truly’s Love Letters Ink Imprint. “Molly Ringwald” will be available to download on July 17. Below watch the Yours Truly video of the collaboration.
Now that I’m covering more festivals, I think it’s time that I do a round up that puts a nice end cap on everything. This year was my first time going to Chicago, and the Pitchfork Music Festival. I loved every part of both.
The festival was on the smaller side, which was rather refreshing. I was able to run back and forth from stage to stage, catching at least a good part of every act. Met lots of great people, and ate some good food.
For me, my favorite sets of the weekend in order would have to be Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, ChromaticsÂ @ Lincoln Hall, outside of festival grounds), Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, Beach House and Japandroids.
It was hot almost all of the time, and rained pretty hard on and off on the first two days. The festival started around 1 and ended around 9-10 each day, which is pretty ideal.
Overall, I had a great time at the festival and definitely would recommend it to anyone who is considering it. Check out my full coverage of the festival right here or check out my posts via a day by day listing in the scheduled order, below.

It’s official, we will be covering the Pitchfork Music Festival this year. I made the trip to Bonnaroo just a few weeks ago, and now I am making my first trip to the windy city to see what the Pitchfork Festival has to offer.
The schedule can be found here.
Now who am I looking forward to seeing? Well, pretty much everyone. But seriously, here’s a little rundown of the artists I’m putting at top priority come the weekend on July 13-15:
