You may remember the name, Roger Singh Kahlon from his excellent “Black Valentine” track. Here’s goes the latest track from this Bay Area by way of Brooklyn, left-of-center MC. Equally chill and downtempo, this is probably not the greatest track to post sliding into the weekend though. Bookmark it and come back to it Sunday or Monday evening!
The Kitchen was a major supporter of Lil Mama back in the day, as other tastemaker sites will attest to, before she became notorious. This is her first new record in a long while (as far as I know) capitalizing on the #sausagemovement. I’d say it was a tad too late and a tad, no pun intended, kitchen sink-ish (as my dude Sledge put it: “[there’s] way too much going on….”) but it was trending on twitter this morning so clearly a lot of poeple still care about her so who am I to say?
A nice housey electro-disco instrumental track from the Brooklyn (Gowanopolis: Gowanus+opolis, geddit??) homie, Dan Freeman to kick off your weekend.
Anthemic, banger sh-t. Re: Rozay’s verse, gotta respect Bron-bron, right? And love how ‘Kiss always drops references to clutch driving. Standard drive >
These two Top 5 (#T5DOA) though??? Hmmm….
And yet another #DK11 album alum, NJ’s Third Mind, drops some music.
Previously on The Kitchen:

Unlike my Favorite Albums of 2014 List posted yesterday there is some sense of what was more liked versus less liked here on my Favorite Songs (not necessarily just singles) List of 2014. The Top 10 is the 10 songs I voted for in this year’s Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll and my number […]
I explained pretty well the criteria I used to do my year-end list back in 2012 but for those of you too lazy to click that link, this is not a list of the ‘best’, most commercially successful or most critically acclaimed albums. The only acclaim these albums have are that they are my favorites. […]
What can I say about Melbourne, Australia’s Audego? I discovered this trip hop electronic soul duo while doing a little side gig hustle screening submissions for NXNE this year and I have been a committed fan ever since checking out both of their shows when they flew halfway around the world to perform twice at […]
Gotta give the homie, J.Nolan mad props. He took getting down with the #DK11 THIS ONE GOES TO ELEVEN… album real serious and hustled to get his contribution to the album, a track titled “Deluxe Edition” on all kinds of blogs and sites. Shouts to DJBooth.net, All In A Day’s Work, CWMuzik, AyeBro, TOAN Magazine, […]
The Kitchen has been a supporter of Bronx native, Noah Vinson for a while now ever since we stumbled upon his mixtape, The Life almost two years ago in our submissions inbox. Since then he’s proven to be an adept MC who can handle himself over new school, minimalist trap feeling tracks or classic style […]
