#5. Olivia Nelson – Summertime
Only came across this track a couple weeks ago, so gonna have to bust it back out when it’s actually summertime. Catchy dance pop made for those summer drives.
#4. The Weekndy – Heartless (Noel Remix)
soundcloud.com/forgetnoel // soundcloud.com/theweeknd
Not really sure how this happened, but here we are featuring Noel’s remix of The Weeknd’s new smash hit before actually featuring the hit itself (it’ll happen). Really really digging this take, which keeps enough of the original but adds some changes to pacing.
#3. The Weeknd Feat. Bryson Tiller – Stay Down
Look at The Game & Bryson Tiller bringing back the sounds of early 90s RnB! So good.
#2. Khalid – Talk (Pryces & Raphy J Remix)
soundcloud.com/raphyj // soundcloud.com/pryced // soundcloud.com/thegreatkhalid
Think this would have been top spot of the week and maybe one of my fave tracks of the year, but the last minute & a half just doesn’t do it for me. Those first 3 minutes tho… nice times.
#1. Mebo Feat. A.n.g.e.l.i & Paul Sayour – Drowning
Really think this dude has some big things coming for him. Kinda feels like the new Khalid, which is hilarious because Khalid is still so new himself.
#5. Parcels – Tape
Wholesome music makers Parcels are back with a new album full of tracks to melt your worries away.
#4. Georgi Kay – Toxins
Loving those chorus synths. Been a big fan of the stuff Georgi Kay has put out this year.
#3. Mesita – Yaoi Prince
My adoration of Mesita is well documented, so don’t think this track really needs any explanation. Classic Mesita.
#2. Khalid – Vertigo
New Khalid Ep was wonderful. A bunch of tracks were keepers, with Vertigo being the standout song IMO.
#1. Phoebe Ryan Feat. Tove Lo – Heart Attack
The Neon Gold label/blog has been a staple of mine since I came across it many many moons ago. I somewhat credit them for introducing me to the world of music blogs. While they don’t release as much music these days as they used to (C’mon Neon… it’s been like 4 months since you’re last track post!!), they did release a celebration album featuring tracks new and old from some of their biggest stars. I like me some Phoebe Ryan, but I’m a total sucker for another Tove Lo gets involved in. Her contributions to this track really win me over.
