Feel It All Around – Washed Out

18 December 2017

There are certain songs that define a genre. When people think of the short lived chillwave genre people think of Washed out – Feel it all around.

At All – KAYTRANADA

12 December 2017

Kaytranada’s At All was my first introduction to the future bass genre and the first time a genuinely enjoyed house music. This song singlehandedly made Kaytranada a cult favorite and a one of the OG’s of the future bass genre. Everyone wanted to be Kaytra, everyone had a house song but nobody had that Kaytranada flair. His swing and basslines were unmatched and those classic Kaytra synths couldn’t be replicated. 

Terrified – Childish Gambino

5 December 2017

If you’ve somehow managed to avoid Childish Gamino’s Redbone until now I have a trophy ready for you to pick up at your earliest convenience. It swept the nation and hooked millions of listeners with its smooth bass lines and soaring falsetto. But I have an unpopular opinion incoming. Redbone is not the best song on this album. Most popular, yes. But the best song has to go to terrified…

Underwaterfall – Bearcubs

28 November 2017

For a while Bearcubs was primary known as an electronic music producer before surprising us with his first EP Underwaterfall as a vocalist. The production is dark and minimalistic. The lyrics hint at anxiety and depression issues. As the track picks up steam you realize how deep this track hits. With swirling vocals and heavy synths Bearcubs takes you under into the abyss.

Feels – Giraffage

21 November 2017

Introducing a special track of mine as far as personal favorite songs go we have Giraffage – Feels. Before this song was “ruined” by the peanut butter baby vine it was an underground gem. A wavy percussion filled joyride with chopped up samples from the airplane scene in Adam Sandler’s The Wedding Singer.

Lovely – Brent Faiyaz

14 November 2017

This song is for the 2am drives to that special (Or not so special) someone’s house. Regardless, “Lovely” brings back memories those intimate moments. Those chance encounters where two people just happen to be in the same place. They hit it off and end up going the distance. Almost never sober, but that’s what makes it special. Two people giving in to their primal instincts, forgetting about outside opinions and skipping the filler. 

Sad Saturdays – JOBA

7 November 2017

Are you feeling sad? Is today Saturday? If so I have the perfect song for you! This song will instantly bring up all your repressed memories about life, love and heartbreak so be prepared to get all introspective and cry a little. Also I’ve done some research and I’ve found out this song will make you sad on any day not just Saturday, isn’t that awesome?

El Dorado – Choker

31 October 2017

Every once in a while you run into a song not many people know about. You try to show them but they don’t understand. Or they tell you that it’s ok. The don’t feel the same emotional connection you do and that’s understandable. But I won’t accept it. This song resonates with me and the chorus is infectious.

Pretty Thoughts – Alina Baraz & Galimatias

24 October 2017

You feel it as soon as the song starts. Warm, heavy and ambient the instrumental draws you in before she even begins to sing, and when she does you understand. The combination of the amazing production of Galimatias and the soft voice of Alina Baraz is unmatched by any collaborative effort I’ve heard between a vocalist and producer in a long time.

Without – Sampha

3 October 2017

If you’ve yet to hear Sampha’s voice your in for a big surprise. Wielding one of the most unique and distinctive voices in music today Sampha shines on nearly every track he’s on.
