With summer just around the corner, its time to dust off those mixtapes and update the playlists.  And what better way to kick it off than with some free music because who doesn’t enjoy free music?  I’m pretty sure the answer is no one, which means its safe to assume I’m more than ‘pretty sure’ you’ll enjoy this artist…

Hailing from Long Beach, NiceguyxVinny has confirmed his prowess at producing music with consistency.  Taking samples from oldies classics to more contemporary works, his albums always promise an aural pleasure.  After browsing through his work, you’ll quickly pick up on his taste for rhythm and sultry hooks.  This kid is a natural.  Every track seems effortless, ambient or funky–he’s nailed it.  Infusing jazz, hip hop, r&b, and plenty of latin influence; NGxV is a testament to experimental electronic music, eliciting tenets of J Dilla/Slum Village era hip hop before he catapults to today’s favorites, Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing–building off of jazz arpeggios and using minimalism as his parameter.  I personally believe in this kid and hope for the day he goes touring in my area.

 With four self produced albums available for download via bandcamp, this music is prefect for road trips, parties, cleaning the house, making someone a farewell mixtape, relaxing, working out, feeding your dog–my point being, its great for any occasion.  If you’ve got the time, I urge you visit his site here and start downloading.  This sumer is going to be hot, and you’ll be needing something to get through the heatwave.  This is it.
