So Mac dropped this last night via twitter, had it been a weeknight i would have posted it right away, but it was a friday night so… Anyway Mac Miller has been steadily keeping the buzz going for the release of his new album Blue Slide Park. In this song producer Big Jerm throws a nice guitar sample over a bumping party bassline and Mac shows hes not slowing down anytime soon.

Mac Miller dropped this just an hour ago to celebrate reaching 90o thousand followers on twitter. Over a tight sample and a jazzy syncopated beat Mac shows his lyrical muscle. Remember Blue Slide Park drops November 8, 2011.
So while i have been slacking off big time my boy vince has been posting dope tracks non-stop so its time for me to carry some of the weight again. Last Saturday was the Governors Ball Music Festival in NYC as some of you may have known from my preview post. Well needless to say the festival was some next level shit. Mac Miller was on point with great energy and a really solid show.
Following Mac Miller was People Under The Stairs. Those guys are incredible live. Joking around with the crowd, freestyling, pouring beer on themselves, it was obvious they were having a great time.
heres a video i took of them performing acid raindrops
After people under the stairs was Big Boi. I’m not that familiar with much of his music but his live show was super dope. Props to his drummer who is filthy by the way. If you look carefully Mac Miller is in the background enjoying the show.
After Big Boi was Girl Talk who was awesome but i unfortunately did not get any good photos of. Plus we left early to get real close for pretty lights. The final act of the festival was Pretty Lights, which was absolutely incredible. Using the same sick light show he had premiered at Bonnaroo he dropped a nice mix of new tracks and old standbys. It was clear that he was super pumped to perform and the crowd was definitely feeling his set even after a long day of partying and other acts.
Heres a video I took of him dropping his new single, a remix of Radiohead, NIN, and Nirvana
Another of his remix of Pink Floyd’s time
Yeah so we at Beats From The Barn have been slacking a little, so what cut us a fucking break were on spring break. Plus i know there’s only 25 of you who read this thing anyway. Regardless to keep our loyal readers satiated heres the new Mac Miller mixtape Best Day Ever. Yeah its been out a couple of days, but maybe like us you’ve been relaxing away from the blackhole that is the internet. Ok enough of this freaking prattle heres the tape.
By the way I’m really diggin this new mixtape. The production is on point, laid back easy going definately diggin Mac’s choices of producers. I dig the vast majority of the tracks and Mac Miller hasn’t been slacking (unlike us) on his rapping and lyricism. History has shown us that its hard for white rappers to maintain their hype and avoid selling out and obscurity (Asher Roth, Sammy Adams, Mike Posner) but so far Mac has been heading in the right direction in my opinion.
