Anthony Valadez – Just Visiting

From what we’ve heard, if you live in L.A. and follow the Hip-Hop beat scene even just a smidge then you will have, at some point, witnessed an Anthony Valadez DJ set. The L.A. based Hip-Hop DJ/producer has residencies at some of the best clubs in and around California, not to mention a regular slot at Santa Monica’s famed KCRW terrestrial radio. In 2009 he released his first full-length EP, Audio / Visual : Sounds Inspired by all Things Visual, which brought an enigmatic fusion of sample-based and live experimental Hip-Hop to our ears, rich in texture and injected with a generous dose of soulful goodness. He’s now teamed up with the amazing label Plug Research to release his second LP Just Visiting, a vibrant collection of sparkling beats and delicate melodies with collaborations from the likes of Mar (of Full Crate and Mar), Anna Wise (of Sonnymoon) and Def Sound. You can stream the whole album at the bottom of this page, and check out our favourite tracks off the album with accompanying [brand new] visuals below.

Snoop Lion – La La La

If Cannabis were ever to have a global ambassador, Snoop Dogg’s claim for the position is as good as anyone’s. Now he’s gone one step further and launched a Reggae side-project called Snoop Lion, producers by Major Lazer. La La La is the first track and was released in the last few days.

Alt-J – Fitzpleasure (The Internet of Odd Future Remix)

Alt-J’s debut album An Awesome Wave is hands down one of our favourites this year. If you’re still yet to hear it, head straight for our review here, after reading this. It’s not just us who like it; they’ve been getting some serious love all over the interweb. So it’s not surprising the first official remix from the album is courtesy of some very credible players.

Live Review: Exit Festival x Jack Daniels Experience

This weekend Stamp The Wax attended the Eastern European music festival Exit, situated in Novi Sad, Serbia. Every year over 20,000 music lovers descend upon the magical Petrovaradin Fortress that overlooks the river Danube to experience some of the most diverse and cutting-edge music the world has to offer.

To give you a bit of context, the festival began in 2000 as a student protest against the Milošević regime and is still a relatively non-corporate event, with cheap food and drink. This fact, along with Serbian hospitality and amazing music has helped Exit Festival become one of the best European music festivals, being visited by 60 million people in more than 60 countries worldwide and amongst the top 10 world festival destinations.
