We had such a good response to our first “Music Monday” that we decided to lace you with a new batch of music for the week. This time, Music Monday falls on Labor Day so you won’t even need music to “get you through the day” necessarily, but rather to enjoy or perhaps workout to (or grill, either or). Let’s get the party started then:
Borgore ft. G-Eazy
Borgore teams up with G-Eazy for the release of “Forbes.” Premiered by XXL, “Forbes” is the title track off Borgore’s upcoming EP, set for release this month on Buygore. Co-produced by Styles & Complete, “Forbes” leads with G-Eazy’s signature vocals, building along a trap beat that slowly simmers before bursting to the forefront. Tel-Aviv born Asaf Borger has amassed millions of fans worldwide. Under his iconic moniker Borgore, the founder of Buygore Records has become known for his high-level productions. Borgore also hosts “The Buygore Show,” an internationally syndicated SiriusXM radio series that shares the name of his upcoming US Tour.
San Holo x Father Dude
Virtuosic bassist / singer Thundercat has enjoyed a magnificent 2015 so far, having released praised mini-album The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam in addition to making outstanding contributions to landmark albums by Kendrick Lamar and Kamasi Washington. He has also made guest appearances with Pharrell and P Diddy on Beats 1, and performed on Comedy Centrals Why? With Hannibal Buress (http://on.cc.com/1MptQbj). He is also set to headline a Fall North American tour, kicking off September 17 in San Diego and today, announced headline European tour dates including a UK leg co-headlined with The Internet.
Bag Raiders (Jack Glass and Chris Stracey) have teamed up with renowned collage artist, Alexandre Coll to create a stunning, psychedelic video for the duo’s track “Waterfalls.” “For the ‘Waterfalls’ video, we wanted something that was a little abstract and visually interesting and exciting,” says Bag Raiders.
Waterfalls is from the band’s acclaimed Waterfalls EP (out now on Modular Records), which also includes “Vapour Trails” and tune “Wonderland. All three of the EP’s songs landed within the TOP 10 on Hype Machine‘s Popular Chart, and marks the comeback of Bag Raiders, who originally broke in 2010 with their certified GOLD debut album.

NORA EN PURE
Arriving just in time to rescue us from those end of summer blues, Swiss dance sensation Nora En Pure works her magic on Paul Harris & Dragonette’s ‘One Night Lover’ – out now on Enormous Tunes. Gracefully working the original, NEP takes it to another realm, blending in her signature piano chords, airy synths alongside a deep and funky beat. Leaving Dragonette’s blissful vocals untouched, NEP’s rendition of the track is destined to set dance floors alight with its energy and vocals.
