The holidays can be hectic, especially when you’re a family man with young children and local in-laws. But I was lucky enough to find some time for myself after my wife and kids were asleep the other night to dig through my production archives and listen to some old loops I had stashed away (yes, I’m a rap artist too, or at least I used to be haha). While going through them, I found a few I thought would be cool to share as a personal introduction to a new series we’re kicking off in 2014 called Loop Library, where we ask producers to come up off some gems from their stash. Check out five of my favorite unused loops I had tucked away below. Click to Read: Loop Library with NahRight’s Stan Ipcus Previously: Sample Stories with Bob James

Music The "power jazz" trio reinvents Stravinsky's avant-garde classic in a wholly new way. And darn if it doesn't sound fresh! Love and Hate offers songs that are mature, but not aged, worldly, but not cynical, in a soundscape that flows with no forcing and no faltering. This merger of two industrial pioneers can be impressive, but never quite matches the original versions. Some questionable choices, but otherwise a good place to start in the man's discography.

yvynyl The following was sent to me as a Letter to YVYNYL, but Mark Trecka also wrote it as “a reflection on travel, in general, and on experiences accrued while traveling in October 2013 while on tour with Angel Olsen and her band.” He is one third of Pillars and Tongues, along with Ben Babbitt and Beth Remis. Listen to their latest End in Memory EP, released last week. On the night of December 8th, 2012, while sleeping in a dank room at a decaying resort in a small vacation town on the southeast coast of England, I dreamed the kind of intoxicating, deep dream that can leave one altered for days and weeks following. In this particular dream, I found myself in a profoundly distant future — perhaps even as far ahead in time as the year 5151 — walking among stalls in a bazar.

Once Upon A Time Zella Day’s Soundcloud biography insists on her American roots: raised in a small mountain town in the depths of Arizona, she grew up singing Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley covers in her family’s coffee shop. Strongly felt in the “Seven Nation Army” cover that first brought her to our attention, these influences are still there on “1965″ and yet make way for a pop twist as Zella Day’s captivating vocals expand to tell a beautiful, nostalgic tale. Our friends at Blah Blah Blah Science are releasing the track as the B-side to Sweet Ophelia next week. Having put out a couple of great tracks in the last few months, this young Icelandic duet could easily surf on the harmonious wave that is “Tension” to take their name further.

THE VERSASTYLE: July 2013 Sorry for the mini hiatus! Last week was July Fourth and I totally let the holiday/four-day weekend get the best of me. It was kinda magical to have more than two days to do whatever I wanted - which consisted eating, BBQ-ing, visiting wine bars, eating ice cream before dinner, massages, getting my hair trimmed (I know you can't tell but its a lot cleaner on the edges) and lots of movies. It's just what I needed before the month gets uber busy. With all the relaxing and chill days, I was all about easy outfits - especially with this stars knit tank from Vintage Havana. It's kinda the perfect top for Fourth of July celebrations.
