Songs of the Week 254: February 16 – February 22

brooke bentham#5. Brooke Bentham – Control

Starting off the week with a track that has some late 90s grunge feel to it.

teri miko#4. Teri Miko x Luca Rezza x Lil Eddie – Eyes Closed

Dubstep seems to have lost some steam after being EVERYWHERE a couple years ago. That said, I always can always make time for any hot melodic dubstep track that doesn’t burn my ears off at the drop.

roddy ricch-bacc seat#3. Roddy Ricch feat. – The Box

When the track started I thought the bed-creak mimc noise that will pepper the track throughout would turn me off… but boy it works nicely. My intro drug to Roddy Ricch has turned me into a huge fan. Will definitely have more features on this dude in the near future.

axel flovent#2. Axel Flovent – Driving Hours

Sometimes you just want to listen a nice track. This is a nice track.

terrell mackey#1. Terrell Mackey – Cool Dwn

One of the best parts about writing this blog is that it forces me to go back and re-evaluate all the music I’ve added to my spotify “liked” songs in the past few weeks to make the rankings for the week. I often “eureka” moments on a second or third pass of a track that makes me realize just how great a song is… something I likely would have missed had I not given it a second or third chance. Cool Down is one of those tracks.

Songs of the Week 254: February 9 – February 15

curren$y#5. Curren$y – Pound In The Sky

I just can’t keep up with Curren$y. Dude puts out too much music to stay current with what’s he’s up to. He’s definitely my hip-hop guilty pleasure tho.

slodown#4. Slowdown Feat. Bohan Phoenix & 9m88

Something different, with the strings really catching the ear and making a super chilled-out RnB track stand out. Reminds me a lot of The Weeknd.

johan lenox#3. Johan Lenox Feat. Yung Pinch – No One Wants To Dance Anymore

More strings!

cubicolor#2. Cubicolor – Wake Me Up

Was a coin flip for top spot this week. Both this track and the one that ends at #1 are fantastic in their own right.

phlake#1. Phlake Feat. Mercedes The Virus – Slip Away

Noticed that I have a lot more Phlake tracks on my playlist than I was aware. Slip Away is far and away my favorite so far from the duo. That chorus is just too good.
