Songs of the Week 197: January 6 – January 12

jerry folk#5. Jerry Folk – Joey

Some super slick beats & production for Jerry Folk, giving a twist to Joey Bada$$’s Land of the Free.

dd walker#4. DD Walker – Psychic Twin

DD Walker channeling his inner Phil Collins here on Psychic Twin.

the dream#3. The-Dream – Runaway Sex

Another one of my guilty pleasures. The-Dream released a mammoth triple-mix tape recently. Most of it was “meh” for me, but Runaway Sex caught my attention.

savi minds#2. Savi Minds – Lazy

This track’s opening minute is straight up amazing. Everything down to the subtle laughing in the background is perfect.

young & sick#1. Young & Sick – Bitter End

Young & Sick is back with another trippy dance pop track. And once again, it’s delicious.

Songs of the Week 196: December 30 – January 5

Imprimir#5. Meera – Little Of Your Time

Cheekly little dance tune from (relative) newcomers Meera.

final djs#4. Final DJs – Freedom

Another gem from Final DJs. Loving the MJ sample.

mesita#3. Mesita – Night Hiking

My main man Mesita continues to churn out some of the best and most original music out there.

slenderbodies#2. Slenderbodies – King

Arrived for the crazy cool vocals. Stayed for the catchy as hell chorus.

secret spade#1. No Fire – Red Light (Secret Spade Remix)

Either I’m just not finding them or we’re not just not seeing as many quality remixes being released as we were 5-10 years ago. That said, Secret Spade adds some serious funk to No Fire’s Red Light.
