MP3: Kid Sister – “Right Hand Hi”

Off her eternally delayed debut album, Ultraviolet, Kid Sister has a new track available for download. “Right Hand Hi” combines feel good rave waves with stuttering Chicago house and and a hip-hop spine. It works.

MP3: Statik Selektah – “Critically Acclaimed”

Feel that baritone sax reach deep into your gut, boosted by some crisp sampled drums and old soul snippets? Has Lil’ Fame ever sounded so nice? Think Saigon and Sean Price can do dope? The answer to all of these questions should be “yes,” and if it isn’t, you haven’t listened to Statik Selektah’s “Critically Acclaimed.” New album, 100 Proof (The Hangover), out this fall.
