Satin synths and silky vocals course through No More, drawing sublime shivers in their wake. The future R&B and effervescent trap slow burner is the latest sensuous single from Belgian artist Alex Lustig, a seasoned hip hop and grime producer who’s worked with the likes of BJ The Chicago Kid, Dizzy Wright, and Skeme. No More features Australian singer Akacia and Just Blaze signee OnCue. Alex says of the track: “The idea was to have a girl and a guy respond to each other. I love when theres a man and a woman on the song singing together. I feel like theres always something special and real to it. So I wanted to make that with my ambient / hip hop touch to it with a chill drop.” You can purchase No More from iTunes, here.

Brooklyn based Connecticut hip hop artist OnCue has been on my artist to watch list ever since he came at us with Staring At The Stars last year, which utilized TV On The Radio’s Staring At The Sun, a song very dear to me. In my opinion, he’s right on the brink of being a huge household name with his latest, the catchy, bright So Much Love. The track is impressively produced by Hudson Mohawke and Just Blaze, too. So Much Love will be on OnCue’s forthcoming mixtape Angry Young Man, out September 3 and executive produced by Just Blaze.

OFFICIAL VID: OnCue – This View From Here

July 9, 2014

Last year, I stumbled upon a rising Connecticut hip hop artist based in Brooklyn named OnCue, and eagerly featured him on IHM. Today, I find myself transfixed yet again with the release of his video for gritty, raw single This View From Here. It packs a very powerful punch with its melodic chorus and OnCue’s earnest, emotional rapping style. Come September 3rd, OnCue will release his debut album Angry Young Man, which was produced by Just Blaze, along with Maki and Nicky Finest.

Dope doesn’t begin to describe this new tune by Brooklyn artist OnCue that samples Banks’ fantastic Shlohmo produced song Brain. Closer heavily utilizes the haunting soundscape Shlohmo created for Banks, but the new number is produced by ARW. Obviously, OnCue is adept at utilizing samples and turning them into amazing new tracks, considering the last time we heard from him, he was sampling TV on the Radio’s Staring at the Sun to great result. There’s a very The Weeknd like vibe going on with this new track, minus the falsetto vocals. Revisit Staring At The Stars, produced by CJ Luzi, below from a few months ago.

I’m a big dope for TV On The Radio, so I immediately recognized that this new track by Brooklyn artist OnCue samples Staring at the Sun, one of my favorite TV On The Radio tunes. Staring At The Stars is produced by CJ Luzi, and surprisingly, the sampling works wonderfully with the rapping. There’s a catchy chorus to boot. Staring at the Stars is off OnCue’s Leftovers 2 project which will drop next Monday, November 25.
