QUiRK TUNES: “LOOKING FOR LOVE” – SIERGIO

artworks-000035271675-v1bs5f-original

 

This song … I can’t even put into words how good it makes me feel and it’s no mistake that it belongs to SIERGIO, the guy with the smoldering tone and outstanding range. I LOVE this guy! You can’t tell me shit about Siergio: besides being a talented singer, he’s a great person as a whole and that makes me want him to succeed more than anyone else I’ve come across while doing this blogging thing. No shade though – I still love all y’all.

“Looking For Love” speaks to every woman who’s dated dud after dud until she’s found Mr. Siergio. If you’ve been looking for love then you’ve been looking for me is a BOLD statement but Siergio sells it and forces you to want to take him up on his offer. Now all you have to do is track him down … go get him, girl!

QUiRK TUNES: “PRECIPITATION” – CASH’MIR

387686165-1

Dallas is a smoldering melting pot of creativity in all avenues that’s about to bubble over into the world – take this post as me preparing you for what you need to be ready for.

CASH’MIR is a dope young MC out of the Southern city who’s style is versatile in a “sometimes I rhyme slow, sometimes I rhyme quick” type of way. Whether rapping fast and pacing himself bar for bar, Cash’mir has it and has even grown from his 2011 project (that I fuck with completely), Burning Bridges.
“Precipitation” is a smooth iPond-produced track that takes you to Dallas for about six minutes; take a listen below and I hope you enjoy your stay.

LISTEN: CASEY VEGGIES – “SMART WATER”

I’m all the way here for Glaceau products getting their props, especially Smart Water because that shit is delicious.

Check out L.A. rapper CASEY VEGGIES on his latest giveaway track, “Smart Water” produced by Chuck Strangers – he says he drinks it in the studio while recording; maybe some of you other rappers should follow suit.

…just saying.

LISTEN: KID SISTER GOES IN ON FLOSSTRADAMUS’ “TOTAL RECALL”

A stan for KS since ‘07, I’m always thoroughly excited about any new material she puts out.  Her remix to FOOL’S GOLD artist FLOSSTRADAMUS’s “Total Recall” is no exception; check it out.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what she’s doing lately, KID SISTER continues to tour around the country and is expected to show up on CHRIS BROWN’S FORTUNE album due out this spring. Just in case you were confused, my girl DOES this.

QUiRK TUNES: GLORY – JAY-Z FEAT. B.I.C (BLUE IVY CARTER)

With the tagline “Life just got REALLY good”, Jay’s LIFE + TIMES blog posted a new song by the first-time father speaking on the beautiful addition to his and his wife’s family over a beat by The Neptunes – with guest harmonizing by Pharrell.

People (a lot of men) have been coming for those who are somewhat abnormally excited for the birth of BLUE IVY CARTER, but this song is why we’re excited. Stop being Darryl Downers and let people be happy for others!

I get excited for babies, period, so don’t judge. Dope track; congrats to Jay and Bey =)

QUiRK TUNES: “MAKE YOUR MOVE” – TEYANA TAYLOR FEAT. WALE

Just in case you were trying to forget just what TEYANA TAYLOR’s occupation is in this industry, “Make Your Move” has been dropped and it proves that she is indeed a songstress. The shade that is thrown this girl’s way constantly is just terrible but she hasn’t let it deter her and after opening for rapper GAME overseas back in November, TT has been in the studio serving you all.

The guest appearance by WALE is definitely a bonus and the upcoming EP she is planning to release this year is sure to be chockfull of surprises; I mean, she IS affiliated with the likes of KANYE WEST, PHARRELL, and so many others. Check her track out and download it here!

QUIRK TUNES: “YOU DA ONE” – RIHANNA

 

Dedicating this track to 2012; I’m falling for you and you haven’t even come yet! I love singing this obscenely loud in my falsified Bajan accent and it can be used in other contexts besides speaking to an actual person.

Get In!

QUiRK TUNES: MY 2011 IN SONG

Music drives my being; I can’t go a day without my earbuds being the vessel from my musical device to my heart. This playlist isn’t one that showcases my favorite songs; it’s a playlist that evokes the varying emotions I experienced in these last twelve months. Yes, most of it is emotional but it’s true to form, that’s for damn sure. Share in my heart’s songs and feel this shit with me!

I’m definitely looking forward to 2012 being less emo and more prosperous in every way. Here’s to you, 2012: you better treat me right.

QUiRK TUNES: SPOTIFY x GRAMMYS – LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD WINNERS

I was just clicking away on my SPOTIFY desktop app and clicked on the FUSE TV button to find that they’ve compiled a special playlist for the 2012 GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award recipients. Imagine my utter surprise and joy when I spotted DIANA ROSS and GIL SCOTT-HERON on the list! I’m such a fan of these two amazing artists and cannot wait to hear more about who will pay tribute to them.

Another great factoid: the backing band for legends such as ISSAC HAYES, OTIS REDDING, and ARETHA FRANKLIN, MEMPHIS HORNS, will also be honored at the Staple Center February 12th. I can only imagine what that tribute will sound like.

The 2012 GRAMMYs is already shaping up to be pretty soulful and I can’t hate on that! If you’d like to take a listen to this awesome playlist that features THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND, GEORGE JONES, and others, click HERE but make sure you’ve created an account with SPOTIFY first. It’s a great service that you won’t regret using.
