#5. AFSHeeN – Tunnel
With vocals that are just BEGGING to be sampled, AFSHeeN’s Tunnel is tops on my list of “Songs I Hope Get Remixed or Sampled”. That opening line is gorgeous. The song is a bit more chill than I was hoping for after it’s opening, but I will never not sing along with those lyrics.
#4. Litche – Look Up
The debut (?) from Litche is a Radioheadesque haunter. Some sweet sounding layered vocals here.
1000volts – Lights Out
Really digging the mashup of hip hop with electro/dubstep/trap that’s going on here. Plus, who can resist Redman? I mean really. And that drop is glorious. That’s a stadium drop right there, made for the big stages of something like a Coachella.
#2. Bad Sounds – Banger
Little happy-go-lucky surf pop at the #2 spot this week. It’s really just the logical next step to come after a dubstep-hip hop … banger… (see what I did there?).
#1. Childish Major Feat. Isaiah Rashad & SZA – Happy Birthday
Gawd damn that melody. I mean the flow is fantastic, and the chorus is catchy as hell… but this melody just floats along gloriously. Always am happy when I have a new hip hop track in my favorites, and this one is amongst the best I’ve come across in a while.
