Beat Tape: Xia-Dawn | pisces.

Xia-Dawn


xia_dawn[MIAMI, FLORIDA] MC/Producer Xia-Dawn released his second beat tape/instrumental project titled pisces. I love the overall jazzy hip-hop vibe of pisces.. Xia-Dawn was able to capture the feeling of a fleeing summer, and the chain between the mood and the tides. Very soulful, indeed. I feel the soulfulness of some of these tracks provides a story of life is love. Xia-Dawn has poured a lot of his heart and emotions into pisces. Favorite beats off this instrumental tape are Amnesia1, Say You’ll Love Me (And I Know You’re Lying), I’ll Always Miss Your Love [LINKS] TWITTER || INSTAGRAM || SOUNDCLOUD || TUMBLR

MOVIES: Announced Title for Sequel for Guardians of The Galaxy

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-HD-Picture-Wallpaper



Star-Lord_Dialogue_1It’s out! The title for the second Guardians of The Galaxy movie will be VOL.2. I truly love the concept of naming it like a mixtape series. I get it, since StarLord’s mother made him two mixtapes that he cherishes deeply. Director James Gunn announced via his twitter account the name of the sequel, which left fans to believe he was joking. James Gunn tweets again, he’s serious! Chris Pratt has also been mentioning on Twitter that the sequel is very emotional and you’ll get to know more on the fathers. Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2 is set to release May 5 2017!!!

Lists: 10 Sultry R&B and Soul Slow Jams

satin_sheets

Allow us to take you on a brief time-traveling journey for some of the most sensuous soul jams to ever pump out of the speakers. Those in the know are already well aware of the importance of the right music for making love and these are some of the jams that you should be making sure are in your Spotify playlist next time you’re with someone special. Over half of those who enjoy music while making love agree that the rights sounds make a big difference in setting the mood and the scene for a sensual evening, according to this infographic on the relationship between sex and music. The same study found that 40 percent of those same people found the right music even more arousing than their partner’s touch. Here are ten great tracks that definitely have the right touch.

01. The Isley Brothers – Between the Sheets

The grandaddy of all smooth slow jams. “Between the Sheets” has been sampled so many times it’s probably playing in someone’s bedroom right now. Notably Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa” sampled the track, and so did Da Brat’s “Funkdafied,” “Nika” by Lil Vicious, Keith Murray’s “Most Beautifullest Thing the World,” Gwen Stefani’s “Luxurious,” and like a hundred other songs. “Between the Sheets” is the truth and you can’t beat the Isley Brothers when it comes to baby-making music.

02. Ready for the World – Love You Down

You can already hear it in your head can’t you? That hook echoing in your brain crooning “let me love you down.” Not only is the beat smoother than silk but Melvin Riley’s vocals practically melt your clothes off. Then, that guitar solo comes in and just blows your mind and now we’re going to take a second and cool off before moving to number three.

03. Sade – No Ordinary Love

Anyone that claims they’re into romantic mood music that isn’t down with Sade doesn’t know what they’re talking about. The opening of this song immediately lets you know what the deal with slow, smoky keys giving way to Sade’s demure vocal line that gets undercut with an epic ’90s guitar riff that makes every time feel like the love scene at the end of an action movie. Game recognizes game with Twin Shadow covering the song on Jimmy Fallon with video of the performance here.

04. Mariah Carey – Always Be My Baby

Mariah may have fallen a bit from her pedestal today, but no one can ever deny the power of Ms. Carey in the ’90s and this was one of her best. Uplifting chords with Mariah’s voice at its best “Always Be My Baby” is a sweet, romantic, and heartbreaking ode to lost love and those who refuse to let go. It works on so many different levels and Carey’s voice is so powerful the song transcends the trappings of time and has become one of the immortal love ballads of our age.

05. Usher – Nice and Slow

They call him U-S-H-E-R R-A-Y-M-O-N-D and “Nice and Slow” is still one of the best songs in the R&B legend’s long repertoire. One of the sexiest singles from 1998’s My Way, the record made Usher a household name and cemented his position as one of the gatekeepers of pop and R&B long before his momentary lapse in judgment led to the signing of Justin Bieber. When it’s seven o’clock on the dot and you’re in the drop top cruising the streets, there’s only one song that will lead you where you want to go.

06. D’Angelo – Untitled (How Does It Feel?)

Truthfully you could easily put just about any D’Angelo song or record on and you’d be ready to roll. Even New York Magazine has applied science to what makes the man’s music so sexy. Soulful guitars combine with a slow-and-steady rhythm section while D’Angelo’s syrupy vocals coat the track like honey for one of the hottest songs that ever hit the charts. But we know all you really remember is the iconic video that also perfectly wraps up everything the song is about into one shot.

07. Frank Ocean – Thinkin’ Bout You

This song, yo. Frank Ocean, the only redeeming figure of the OFWGKTA family (except for Earl, we love you, Earl), he was always just too good to be hanging with a bunch of foul-mouthed chuckleheads spending their time swearing and skating. But 2012’s “Thinkin’ Bout You” from his Channel Orange LP put the soulful singer on a completely different level than his compatriots. Frank was too busy making beautifully crafted love songs with irresistible hooks that made him the perfect R&B star for a new generation.

08. Miguel – Adorn

2012 was a terrific year for slow jams and Miguel’s “Adorn” was one of the best. The dated synthesizers and chords felt more like Lionel Richie than Trey Songz and Miguel ended up falling backwards into a new classic. Miguel is still at the whole bedroom music game with “Coffee,” but he’ll be hard pressed to ever top this one.

09. Ciara – Body Party feat. Future

The ex-Mrs. Future recently dropped her latest record, Jackie, to positive feedback, but it was 2013’s “Body Party” that rebuilt Ciara’s brand and made her a staple of the sexy stereo. Unstoppable producer-du-jour Mike Will Made It flipped the sample from the classic romantic ’90s club jam “My Boo” by the Ghost Town DJs and turned it into a slowed down sexual tour de force bringing that inescapable hook back to life for another summer of love. She may not be with Future anymore but she seems to be doing well after trading up for Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, according to the Washington Post.

10. Jeremih – Planes feat. J. Cole

Jeremih has matured a lot since his “Birthday Sex” days and is currently controlling the airwave since 2015 with this outstanding ode to the mile-high club. By all accounts, airplane sex is decidedly not as fun or practical as birthday sex. You have to deal with cramped spaces, passengers, air marshals, turbulence, and a bunch of other hassles. The act is more fun in theory than in practice. But we suppose if you’re Jeremih and have a private G6 then you could probably make it work and J. Cole has a nice verse and name-drops Akinyele. Complex reports that the track was to originally feature a verse from Chance the Rapper but ultimately went with the North Carolina-bred J. Cole.

Kingdom-Hearts-3-5Can you finally believe it?! Kingdom Hearts III is finally available for Pre-Order and release date is for December 31, 2015!! No, not an official release date but that date is just a placeholder date. No official date has been announced yet. Hopefully one will be announced during E3 in a couple weeks. If it is set to release by winter this year, it will be perfect time for a late Christmas gift. Clearly this means the game must be close to finishing, since they’re already accepting pre-orders (Hopefully… fingers crossed). I’ll be setting up my pre-order and wish list to Santa for a PS4 in order to even play the game. Kingdom Hearts III the game is set to possibly have characters and worlds involving Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel. We just have to wait and see for any more updates.

Music Video: Cam Sutton – Pride

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 6.15.26 PM


Have you ever realized when a relationship is over before it’s over? You try to make things work because you love each other and you want the best. But the loves not there anymore. Your PRIDE will never allow you to be with that person ever again because they hurt you so bad.

That’s what Cam Sutton perspective was in his music video for his track PRIDE that’s on his Good Conversation debut mixtape. Cam Sutton is an artist from Queens, New York. You can tell he was being real with his lyrics. PRIDE was produced by HiFadility and the video was directed by Kid DeeBo.

Download: KuroiOto – The May 3rd EP

MAY3RDEPCOVER-1024x1024

As I make my NikkiSiixx.com debut, I couldn’t be happier to be making it with this EP. Readers I’d like to introduce you to KuroiOto. As a member of the Blat Pack, a music collective based in Lansing, MI, the producer drops off an EP titled for his muse celebrating their anniversary. I love this project for so many reasons. It is poetic, afrocentric, eclectic, groovy and real smooth. This less than fifteen minute EP is perfect for the short ride, or the kick off to a night cap (feel me on this). Whatever mood you deem it fit for, it will produce a good one that’s for sure. KuroiOto makes being in love sound really good.
