Need a plan for July 4th? Head to El Rio, which just released its lineup for their Big Time Freedom Fest.

The SF producer known as oOOoO (Christopher Dexter Greenspan is his street name) gave a taste of his upcoming album Without Your Love. It's woozy, bewitching, and perfect for a listen when the sun crawls back behind the clouds, which could be as soon as this coming Monday. [via Pitchfork]

Oakland's White Girl Mob, also known as the rap entity that helped spawn the "careers" of Kreayshawn, Lil Debbie, and V Nasty, has ceased to exist. In a video interview with V Nasty on VLAD TV, the bomb is dropped when V Nasty admits "there is no White Girl Mob." That was over quick. [via VLAD TV]

Bay Area crooner and producer J. Kendall dropped a new video for his single "Moving Forward" from his debut LP of the same title. It's about time the Bay spawned a decent soul singer. [via Youtube]

San Jose rapper Antwon and Bay Area post-metal outfit Deafheaven, both of whom are having an insane year already, teamed up for a dreamy, reworked version of Antwon's track "In Dark Denim" from his latest album of the same name. But that's not all 'Twon's dealing out right now. Be sure to listen to his latest collab with his Nature Boys collective on "Mansions," over a blissed out Friendzone beat. [via The Bay Bridged]
