Songs of the Week 286: September 27 – October 3

#5. The Neighbourhood – BooHoo

https://soundcloud.com/theneighbourhood

There’s something super chill-sounding about the beat for BooHoo that has me playing this one over and over.


#4. Leisure – Slipping Away

https://soundcloud.com/theleisurecollective

Speaking of super chill-sounding… meet the kings of super chill.


#3. La Pore – Blame

https://soundcloud.com/la-pore-294922178

This one wins me over with the hook.


#2. Disclosure – Restless (Otherwise Fine Remix)

https://soundcloud.com/otherwisefinemusic

This is niceeee. Real nice. Refreshing Spotify daily hoping for it be uploaded. As part of a remix competition put on by Disclosure (but yet somehow not the winner!), I’m eagerly waiting the original as well, which has yet to be dropped by Disclosure. Apparently this was one of the final cuts from their most recent album.


#1. Smoke DZA Feat. Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Girl Talk & Big K.R.I.T. – Santos Party House

My boy Curren$y with a KILLER verse. Only downside is that he doesn’t enter in with his trademark “da da da da da da”. This entire track is some easy-listening hip hop.

Songs of the Week 278: August 2 – August 8

#5. Two Another Feat. Arno Faraji – Just A Phase

https://soundcloud.com/twoanother

Two Another are starting to take over my Spotify. Seem that with each passing week they drop another track that manages to make the cut. Arno Faraji’s vocals are pretty slick here as well.


#4. Gashi – Lies

https://soundcloud.com/g4shi

Easily my favorite track from the recently released 1984. Dark and brooding.


#3. Curren$y – Coast 2 Coast

https://soundcloud.com/currensy

At this point I don’t even know if I need to write words anymore about this dude. He releases an album seemingly every week, and despite some of it sounding tired and worn our there is almost always at least one track that manages to make it thru the cut and get some major air time on my playlist.


#2. Balu Brigada – Part Time

https://soundcloud.com/balu-brigada

Another feel good track from the aptly titled Feel Good Mixtape. Got a few more coming from these boys.


#1. Brasstracks Feat. Col3trane – Missed Your Call

https://soundcloud.com/brasstracks

The lads known for infusing their tracks with brass sounds, they benefit here from some brilliant vocals from Col3trane, resulting in an up-beat summer track.
