New Music From: Danger Doom, Celular Feel, Nappy Roots and More

Just because you blinked while you were thumbing through your apps doesn’t mean you should miss one of the many musical gems that come out every single day. We’re here to make your life a little easier and to make it sound a whole lot better with The Listening Room, our daily roundup of the four new songs you need to hear.

Danger Doom
“Mad Nice” f/ Black Thought and Vinny Price
Producer: Danger Mouse

A decade ago Danger Mouse and MF Doom teamed up for a pair of releases, The Mouse and the Mask and Occult Hymn, but here’s an unreleased collaboration from the soul brothers featuring Black Thought and Vinny Price. If “Mad Nice” is supposed to be a description of Danger Doom’s talents, it’s accuracy is evidenced by the effortless ebb and flow of the track, highlighted by Black Thought’s ever-sharp microphone wizardry. –Khari Nixon

Celular Feel
“As Long As Ropes Unravel”
Producer: Celular Feel

Celular Feel is the most recent alias of Will Neibergall, a musician previously known to many as Glass Popcorn. While the young Tempe native’s blend of avant-garde rap made quite the splash at MoMA PS1 during a 2015 performance of his viral hit “Ed Hardy,” we’re now seeing the producer come into his own with a smattering of uploads posted to his SoundCloud, as well as some live performances. Today’s track is a calming rework of a Dean Blunt song that was uploaded to the enigmatic producer’s own SoundCloud just a few days ago. Neibergall l has been off my radar for some time but it’s great to see the young producer putting in work and getting his hands dirty. –Kyle Petreycik

Nappy Roots
“The Void” featuring Earthgang and Scotty ATL
Producer 808 Blake

New music from the revered Nappy Roots collective has been sporadic, but their new album, Another 40 Akerz, dropping this Friday, should be a healthy reminder of their deeply resonating and soulful music. With young Atlanta upstarts Earthgang and Scotty ATL in tow, it’s clear that the Nappy Roots have an idea of who should be carrying their torch forward. –KN

Dave East
“Mask Off (East Mix)”
Producer: Metro Boomin 

Looks like the #MaskOffChallenge has found it’s way to Harlem’s own Dave East. The artist dropped another EASTMIX on us, just as the day was winding down. East flexes on the Metro Boomin-produced beat with ease, even taking the time to pay homage to his previous landlord who “knew I was late with mad rent”. –KP
