On Superpowers, West Coast electro-futurist The Polish Ambassador decreases his trademark funkiness in order to increase his musical sex appeal. This EP is dripping with sleek, polished (haha) synths delicately laid atop chilled-out bass-lines. Ordinarily TPA drops booty-shaking anthems, here the booties are shaking for entirely different reasons and in an entirely different place: the intergalactic bedroom. This is a cohesive album, the tracks run together smoothly, and the fact that nothing stands out is a testament to the efforts of a multi-talented producer. Available as a free download, this will be playing at an alien sex party near you:

Snoop Dogg is now Snoop Lion?! The apparently new-and-improved rap star has embraced the red, gold and green, under the production tutelage of Major Lazer. With Diplo & Switch on the beats, this is smooth-sailing classically-styled reggae. Snoop doesn’t deliver much of an impressive flow, instead letting his delicate vocals mingle with the pared-back rhythm section and the supporting female part. “La La La” is an intriguing effort, the question is whether Reincarnation will deliver as an LP or not. Hopefully this track is just on the lighter side, and Snoop can deliver some reggae tracks worthy of the Lion moniker.

Del The Funky Homosapien is rightfully a hip-hop legend, turning West Coast gangsta-rap on its side to create intelligent and relevant music.  He’s now 2/3 of the way through a free mixtape series, West Coast Avengers, where he features samples exclusively from a single artist.  The latest installment is all Fela Kuti, loops created out of catchy horns and percussion pieces from the afrobeat maestro.  Del’s voice commands your attention, commenting on everything from the internet to his own awesomeness.  Each track clocks in at 2 minutes, so this entire free LP will disappear in less than 20 minutes, but each track is quite enjoyable.  Volume One is all P-Funk inspired, appropriately enough, so it sounds much more as one would expect than Volume Two…
