  • Recommended: Freddie Gibbs – Baby Face Killa (#BFK) MP3

    It feels like we’ve been waiting on “Baby Face Killa” since 2010. Maybe not in the form we got, but Freddie Gibbs has been throwing around the title for so long it felt like a dream when it became increasingly more clear it was finally happening. While it’s conception may have been years ago, the long birth [...]

    Andrew Field-Pickering, commonly referred to as Maxmillion Dunbar or Max D, is in control of the decks for Truancy Volume 53. He is one half of the Future Times, the label responsible for some of dreamiest and tastefully retrospective music of the last few years. Coming from a background rooted in punk music, Pickering began his journey in high [...]

  • Sunday’s Best Pt. XXIII MP3

    From the dusty and damp home studio recordings to the amount of songs she gives away, everything about Shadowbox screams DIY. Coming from the seemingly endless stew of New York talent, Bonnie Baxter distinguishes herself through the heavy contrast in her music. Her music often pairs brash borderline noise sounds with light bleeps and lofty afterhours textures. [...]

  • Tuesday’s Best Pt. XXII MP3

    Jeremih’s “Late Nights with Jeremih” set the internet ablaze when it dropped a few weeks ago, and, like everyone else, we couldn’t resist the guilty pleasures found in the R&B posterboy’s relentless and unabashed carnal pursuits. If you read our August’s Best feature last Sunday, you know that we particularly enjoyed “773 Love” for the way that [...]

  • Recommended: Domo Genesis & Alchemist – No Idols MP3

    Twenty-twelve has been a bit of a low-key year for Odd Future. They seemed inescapable last year and while we saw some big releases this year (“Channel ORANGE” and the “Odd Future Tape Vol. 2“), the majority of the camp has been relatively quiet. Enter Domo Genesis’ collaboration with the Alchemist: “No Idols” is a an [...]

  • Official Re-Launch & August’s Best MP3

    As you all know, we’ve been on a bit of a hiatus for the past month. But we’ve all returned from our island hopping and Moët popping to get back on the Truants grind, and we have a lot of exciting features coming up in the next few weeks and months! While the dog days [...]

  • Exclusive: Shadow Dancer – Al’s 4.43am Mix Vol. 2 MP3

    Last year electro stalwarts Shadow Dancer surprised us all with an ambient mix put together to mark the summer solstice. Named “Al’s 4.43am Mix”, the hour-long ambient journey sat perfectly with the annual moment of sunrise on the longest day of the year. At turns elegiac and wistful, heartbreaking and uplifting, it showed a side [...]

  • Recommended: Honey Cocaine – 90′s Gold MP3

    We love to blame music platforms for enthusing a dangerously fast-spinning carousel of hype and short-lived careers by the use of the cyberspace and its social networks. One thing we shouldn’t forget is that we’re part of a special era as the music industry is changing right in front of our eyes. We live in [...]

  • Mix: Triple Lucid Life MP3

    If, like us, you’ve been wondering what Lucid has been up to lately, Triple Lucid Life is your answer. The hotly tippled Melbourne producer became a sensation last year with his “Thy EP” on the party-starting Pelican Fly imprint, demonstrating an uninhibited, self-assured style that brings together grime, house, dubstep, and hip hop in irreverent and unseen [...]

  • Interview: Svengalisghost MP3

    If you’ve heard anything off of Svengalisghost’s debut release, “Mind Control“, it’s apparent this is the work of an experienced producer with a refined palette of sounds. Don’t get it twisted, he’s in no way content with using the same sounds over and over, as he states, “What’s the new sound? That can’t be it, [...]

    So what, you though May had given it all you had to offer? Think again. Just when you were about to toss May aside like a rinsed can of Rubicon Mango, this absolute dream of a mix pops up, offered to us by the excellent bilinguals over at Playground Magazine. Of course, being Truants we’re [...]

  • One On One: InI – Center of Attention MP3

    Some not-so-underground hip hop for the latest installment of One on One. “Center of Attention” was originally the title track on InI‘s “Center of Attention” album, recorded back in 1995. For the uninitiated, InI were a hip hop collective composed of Rob-O, Grap Luva, I Love H.I.M., Marco Polo, and Boodakhan. Most of those names faded [...]

    It seems like we can’t get enough of all things Japan these days, and who can blame us? Submerse is the 23 years old Rob Orme, a producer from Tokyo via Cheshire, and he’s making waves all over the place. Prolific as well as globe-trotting, he’s the man behind a slew of dextrously produced EPs. [...]

  • Remixes & Blues Pt. VI: Drake MP3

    Aubrey Drake Graham’s come up has been a strange one. Some of the same pitchfork-holding haters that were spewing fire at the Canadian rapper-come-singer about twenty-four months back have gradually been transformed into those fans that now DIY owl chains and whisper YOLO before job interviews. Somehow Drizzy’s charm is quite irrefutable at the end [...]

The problem is less about people understanding him, and more to do with where to place him. He has the energy of Waka Flocka Flame but with a lot [...]

    They say that self-reflection and experience are two tools that pave the way towards wisdom and talent when combined. When looking at rap music, nothing is more true. There’s nothing more repelling than a rapper who gravely overestimates his own qualities or as frustrating as one who is unable to recognize is own talents. North-Carolina [...]

    Starlito’s follow-up to the the straight to YouTube, jacking-for-beats mixtape “For My Foes” is every bit the personal journey the title and cover art suggest. “Mental WARfare” finds Lito laying both heart and mind bare on majority of the seventeen track tape. The first song, “Hope for Love” opens the album with a struggle and [...]
