Jay Z dropped an emotional new song about the killings of black men by police officers, ‘Spiritual,’ this week.

Product Review: UE BOOM

by

The new Ultimate Ears BOOM has some serious sound going on.

And by that, I mean that it’s LOUD.

The speaker not only looks simple in design but music emanates from 360 degrees, transforming the space around you into a lively and enveloping soundstage.

The UE BOOM has been developed for a deep, rich sound and with its simple cylindrical design, it features just four simple buttons (power, volume functions and the Bluetooth connection), and delivers optimal sound quality no matter where it’s placed in the room.

Its Bluetooth functionality also means you can wirelessly link it to your smartphone, laptop or tablet device.

I love the original of this tune from Kendrick Lamar’s debut album, ‘good kid, m.A.A.d city’, and every male in my life for some reason loves this tune too.

And now, Top Dawg Entertainment has released the official remix to the track, featuring Mr Sean Carter.

Digging the tune, but loving the artwork more. 😉

Ta-ku: Justin Timberlake – Suit & Tie (Remix)

by

Australian beat maestro Ta-Ku is one producer that very rarely releases a tune that doesn’t make me smile. A few days ago, he released a smooth retwerk on Justin Timberlake‘s ‘Suit & Tie’.

With a soothing piano melody, and a variety of drums and claps remixed through the original, this is a must listen.
