Download: Co$$ "Pretty Ugly"

Label: Tres

Straight outta of the Leimert Park district of Los Angeles is some bumpin' west coast shit from Troy "Co$$" Johnson that'll have car trunks rattling up and down the block. Watch out for his Khakis and Taylors 12" that's hitting store shelves in the coming weeks.

Download: Phosho feat. Cerebral Vortex "Control Dub"

Phosho, the more electro-minded moniker of San Francisco's grimey Salva, has joined forces with SF-based MC Cerebral Vortex for the synth-laden "Control." On this dub version of the track, Phosho chops the vocal into fine slices and syncopates them perfectly with percussive synths and straight-forward beats tailor made for the dancefloor.

Download: Sene "Just Like Him"

Teaming up with Stockholm-based producer Eric L, Brooklyn's Sene busts through the hip-hop gates with this gritty tale of growing up in the New York borough. Hopefully this track will fend off any hungry wolves until his Blu-produced debut ADayLate&ADollarShort sees the light of day this fall.

Download: Dub Pistols "I'm In Love (Foamo Remix)"

London's old-school, big beat merchants Dub Pistols are back with a new single, dubbed, simply enough, "I'm In Love." As one might expect, plenty of remixes have been commissioned and included on the single's release. Here, the U.K's club-lovin' Foamo gives the reggae-influenced track a wobbly, buzzing bass treatment that compliments the repetitious vocal hook.

Download: Har Mar Superstar "Tall Boy"

Label: Dilettante Recordings

Could someone please make Har Mar Superstar famous? His tour opening for Weezer didn't do it, and neither did his cameo in the Starsky and Hutch re-make. The tracks he wrote for J. Lo or Kelly Osborne went nowhere, and we have a feeling that his new single, "Tall Boy," originally intended for Britney Spears before her management turned it down, won't be changing his fortunes either. The paint-by-numbers pop tune leans far more '03 than '09, and Har Mar has made the, um, interesting decision to keep the original lyrics, leaving him looking for a "tall boy" to "get inside" of him. Good luck with that one.

Download: The Bloody Beetroots "Awesome feat. The Cool Kids"

Label: Dim Mak

On the latest leak from their forthcoming debut album Romborama, Italian rave-aholics The Bloody Beetroots have morphed their sound just slightly to fit the verses from Chicago alt-rappers The Cool Kids. A sinister hip-hop beat drives "Awesome" while percussive synths and Chuck and Mikey's style-centric rhymes hang on for the ride.

Download: Johnson & Jonson "Radical 2"

Label: Tres

The Tres stable has been owning the hip-hop landscape as of late and this exclusive, never-heard-before instrumental joint from the Blu & Mainframe alliance is no joke. A hash of old-school hip-hop, funk, and bass amplitude, let's just say that Johnson & Jonson are about to blow this party up.
