Boston emcee Elemental Zazen presents the second single from his new album Nothing To Lose But Change, also featuring Jean Grae and Canibus. “This might be my favorite track on the record,” Zazen says of “Kill ‘Em With The Beat”. “Fashawn is one of the most naturally gifted emcees in the game. He’s blowing up right now, and with good reason. Joe Beats has always been one of my favorite producers, and this beat represents him at the top of his game. Make sure you listen to the end of the track…DJ Slipwax absolutely MURDERS the cuts.”

santigold 540x360 Santigold na Main Stageu Exit Festivala!

Osim M.I.A, Main Stage će posjetiti još jedna mlada dama koja je definirala žanr snažnih indie diva sa multikulturalnim zaleđem – Santigold.
Ravno iz Brooklyna, Santi White, danas poznata kao Santigold, postala je jedinstvena i inspirirajuća figura na suvremenoj glazbenoj sceni. U muzičkom svijetu probila se kao producent sjajnog albuma How I Do glazbenice Res, nakon čega započinje i samostalnu karijeru. Istoimeni debi album ove zvijezde iz 2008, kada se još uvijek zvala Santogold, lansirao je hit L.E.S. Artistes, i uvrstio je u jednu od najuzbudljivijih i najneustrašivijih izvođača u posljednjem desetljeću. Spomenuti singl magazin Rolling Stone je proglasio za drugi najbolji singl godine, dok je album pobrao pohvale zbog svog potpuno autentičnog novog zvuka i prijemčivih melodija. Uspjeh albuma prvijenca otvorio joj je put za suradnju s nekim od najboljih muzičara današnjice, kao što su Jay-Z, David Byrne, Major Lazer, Beastie Boys i mnogi drugi.

Trenutno Santigold radi na novom albumu koji bi trebalo izaći ove godine, a teaser za album izašao je prije nepunih mjesec dana u obliku singla Go, kolaboracije sa Karen O iz grupe Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Uz Santigold potvrđen je i nastup DJ Muggsa iz grupe Cypress Hill.
