The first Playlistings release is here! In the wake of the LeBron James fiasco, and ultimately, the recent media obsession with the NBA’s Miami Heat. We thought it was only fitting to deliver volume 1 packed full of that southern 305 flavor. Plus The DKA Life will be setting up shop in downtown Miami very shortly.

Tracklist:

1. Rick Ross – Live Fast, Die Young (feat. Kanye West)
2. DJ Khaled – All I Do Is Win [Remix] (feat. Various Artists)
3. Usher – DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love (feat. Pitbull)
4. Pitbull – Pump It Up (feat. Dominic)
5. Rick Ross – Maybach Music III (feat. T.I., Jadakiss, Erykah Badu)
6. Pitbull – Game On (feat. TKZee & Dario G.)
7. Flo Rida – Club Can’t Handle Me (feat. David Guetta)
8. GhostWridah – Red Bottoms (feat. Jay-Z)
9. Jim Jones – Summer Wit Miami (feat. Trey Songz)
10. Rick Ross – Free Mason (feat. Jay-Z & John Legend)
11. GhostWridah – Look At Me Now (feat. Kirby)
12. Black Dada – Imma Zoe [Remix] (feat. Rick Ross & Birdman)
13. Rick Ross – Aston Martin Music (feat. Drake & Chrisette Michele)
14. Killa Kyleon – I Am The Hood (feat. Rick Ross)
15. Lil Jon – U Don’t Like Me
16. Rick Ross – Super High [Remix] (feat. Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y)

I spoke to D. Wade earlier this week and he says the 305 Special will be a weight room mainstay this Summer. Meanwhile, in Cleveland…

Playlistings: An Introduction

Posted in Graphic Design, Music, Playlistings with tags , , , , , , on July 19, 2010 by bendey14

With great delight, I’d like to introduce a new collaborative project through the world of music and graphic design titled, “Playlistings.”

The Vivid Underground has recently linked up with The DKA Life to bring you a constant flow of brand new hip-hop music combined with all-original “mixtape” covers as often as we can.  The music is certified fresh and hand-picked straight from the vines around the interweb each day.  The Playlistings mixtapes will be a shared release through both blogs for now, but we are actively looking for additional blogs to help market/feature the downloads. Who knows, maybe even an exclusive website someday?

THINGS TO EXPECT:

-Brand new hip-hop music from today’s hottest artists, as well as selected up-and-coming artists.

-Easy download of .ZIP file that includes mp3 files, track listing, and original cover artwork. Virus-free of course.

-Releases hopefully every two weeks, but realistically expect at least 1 every month.

THINGS TO BE AWARE OF:

-All music is legal to download (to our knowledge) via free artist mixtapes/official leaked tracks.

-All artwork is being released under a Creative Commons License (Attribution-Noncommercial-NoDerivs).

-All music is individually available after a simple Google search. We’re just making it easy to share our favorite music with ya’ll and having fun doing it.

*Stay tuned for the 1st release later this evening.*
