New Sounds: LOGGY logs on


Cali college all-capped rapper LOGGY is riding several musical waves on his debut mixtape, Up All Night. The Asher Roth / Atmosphere comparisons are evident – and promoted on his MySpace page – but he also aims for music bloggers’ soft spots by sampling liberally from indie hits, capitalizing on a smart, growing trend (see Chiddy Bang). “Our Little Secrets” (downloadable below) bumps Passion Pit’s dancefloor-friendly “Little Secrets” and “Rich Girl” gives The Virgins’ similarly named track its sample-ready due. (And there’s a sample in “We Lounge” that I know I know but can’t figure out its name!) LOGGY might have trouble clearing these samples for a proper album, but they’re right on for a mixtape.
