#5. Jerry Folk – Joey
Some super slick beats & production for Jerry Folk, giving a twist to Joey Bada$$’s Land of the Free.
#4. DD Walker – Psychic Twin
DD Walker channeling his inner Phil Collins here on Psychic Twin.
#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.
#2. Savi Minds – Lazy
This track’s opening minute is straight up amazing. Everything down to the subtle laughing in the background is perfect.
#1. Young & Sick – Bitter End
Young & Sick is back with another trippy dance pop track. And once again, it’s delicious.
#5. Thenwhen – Love Me Later
This has got some major promise. Love the sound, and for a debut track there’s some good pieces. Excited to see what’s coming up from this new duo.
#4. Gallant – Haha No One Can Hear You!
Feel like it’s been ages since Gallant has graced these pages. It hasn’t been because lack of content – Gallant’s been releasing regularly over the past year or so – just there hasn’t been anything that’s really caught my ear until Haha No One Can Hear You!.
#3. No Rome Feat. The 1975 – Narcissist
Sugar pop. Then again, when The 1975 is featured on a track should we really expect anything else? Love the production and bouncing background vocal sample.
#2. Dom Ford Feat. Lexi Shanley – Whatever I Want
This has been stuck in my head for the past week or two. Lexi Shanley’s vocals are stupid catchy. It’s a pretty gentle track and has that “made for radio” feel.
#1. Jerry Folk – Charlotte
Goddman man. I don’t know what it is about Jerry Folk’s music, but it just hits me. It’s weird, yet catchy. It makes me want to dance, despite not really being “dancy”. That first vocal loop is gorgeous.
