Chicago-based production duo Flosstradamus have a new promo cut with Charlotte, North Carolina MC Deniro Farrar called "Look at the Sky." Over ethereal synths and a haunting vocal sample grounded by crisp snares, Deniro gets introverted, spitting hypnotic lines about weed, his mother, paranoia and more. 

"Deniro's manager hit Curt up asking for some beats," says Flosstradamus' J2K (a.k.a. Josh Young), "and we were both fans, so we were geeked on the opportunity to work together. We sent three over, he picked 'Look at the Sky,' and the rest is history!" "Look at the Sky" is a promo-only track, but you can download it here.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
