Azealia Banks - "Jumanji" prod by Hudson Mohawke & Nick Hook

Azealia Banks with Karl Lagerfeld
The Azealia Banks release schedule is getting harder and harder to keep up with. As of now, it goes something like this:

This month: 1991 EP
This summer: Fantastic mixtape
This fall: Broke With Expensive Taste LP

Azealia tells us that the Hudson Mowhawke and Nick Hook-produced "Jumanji" is a taste of the mixtape. (Nick Hook is one third of Cubic Zirconia.)

Azealia Banks - "Fuck Up the Fun" prod. by Diplo

AiMT has been a ghost town for two months, but the hiatus is ending now in a big way. The next post will be the debut of something BIG for this site, mainly because it will provide content on a regular basis in a format that will be a lot easier for me to stay on top of regularly and naturally.

While I'm putting the finishing touches on it, I thought I'd share some new heat by two of AiMT's all-time favs, Diplo and Azealia Banks. (By the way, if you didn't catch the video for Diplo's new single, "Express Yourself," please do so now.)



Here's a bonus, which I posted back in January, but the SOPA blackout kept us from getting our precious aggregated web love:

BONUS: Azealia Banks - "212 (607 Flip)":

Azealia Banks - "Grand Scam" [prod. by Machinedrum]

I'm hoping my girl Azealia will get a mixtape out by the end of the year, but if not, I'm more than happy to continue bumping the handful of recent goodies she's graced us with. "Grand Scam" is more of where that came from, and it's produced by Machinedrum, whom I appeared with on the Dosage compilation years back when I still produced.

Azealia Banks & Lunice - "Runnin'"

Azealia Banks

Montrealer beat weirdo Lunice has turned out this dark-yet-lively collab with my current favorite up-and-coming MC, NYC's Azealia Banks. I can't wait to hear what else Azealia cooks up this year.
