Salt Ashes “Save It” Control-S Remix

I remember being in the 90’s and this takes me right back there. I can’t wait to spin this at a local party where the beers are cheap, and the women are all short and sweaty. Yo also, I bet this producer is a fuckin’ Power PC user cos otherwise their name would be Command S. What is annoying here though is that the LABEL that put this out, didn’t put the link to whoever Control-S is and that pisses me off.  So I am putting Radikal Records on blast here. Huge writeup about ALL THIS SHIT I WILL NEVER READ under the Soundcloud description but you’re missing the person who remixed it!? Really? I did some googling though!

Thurxday “Shoreditch”

Not gonna lie, at first few seconds of a listen I was like, chipmunks voices? But then it turned out homie Thurxday from South Korea got some soul yo. I hear all sorts of things about South Korea. Such as, they build upwards cos that place just ain’t got the space on the ground to house all the people. I imagine one day that it will pretty much look like all the Anime cartoons look. At that time, I shall visit. Until then, I will avoid it cos I don’t think I can handle the spicy cabbage and shit like that.

Anuka “Colorblind”

Anuka you are a sexy sounding little mermaid and I love it. This cut has some really cool drunky vibes. The bells in the production really worked for me. I love that half cut wobbly shit. The subject matter is cool here and the vocal execution is exactly what it needs to be. Pretty effortless. I want to like, clean my room to this. In my boxers, all sexy  like, while a girl is on the bed drinking wine and everything is happening in slow motion.

Unlike Pluto “Someone New”

I like Unlike Pluto yo. I have posted some of the homie’s music in the past and here I go again. This cut is soulful as fuck. It makes me miss the early days of Flume, not in the fact that the production is similar but that you got dope groove on the drums, it hits heavy and has soulful vocals on the cut. Great work Pluto. I would never Unlike you. I suggest y’all LIKE Pluto and follow! (see the dry pun here? oh yeah.. one step away from being a dad)

Kevin Livez “Flutter”

Sometimes I dig weird bedroom hiphop that is heavily autotuned. Sometimes I FUCKIN HATE IT. Usually I hate it and my first response is, nah fam, get outta here with your autotune. But today is one of those days where I came along something weirdly raw enough to appeal to me. Don’t get me wrong. There is lots of work that needs to be done on this song still in my opinion. But sometimes a song has something in it regardless. So sip your purple and sprite and enjoy yourself some Kevin Livez.

Lost Kings “Phone Down” Evan Berg Remix

The intro on this next number is so strong. The vocal chops and chords compliment each other perfectly. This is some dope pop shit. I get a bit annoyed at the girl telling me to put my fuckin’ phone down in the song though. She talkin about being there with her clothes off while homie is on his phone. I mean… girl, he probably checkin’ his instagram thots. Give the man some space! Sounds like he NEVER puts the phone down by what I am here here. I think it might be all the nagging. Usually I get like that when I get nagged at. Just sayin’, that maybe you’re just boring and frumpy or some shit yo. Be honest with yourself girl. Good work Evan Berg and Lost Kings “Phone Down”

Starley “Call On Me” Edwynn x Tikal x Spirix REMIX

I like this remix of Starley a lot more than the original. The original bored me. Some crazy how, Edwynn , Tikal and Spirix put their heads together on some power ranger shit and made it happen.

Xan Griffin “U Remind Me”

The intro to this song is obscenely epic. It’s to a point where I get a little sick listening to it. Like, wtf am I in a movie with some ridiculous love chase where everything is a montage?! But the chorus on this is soooo proper that you could pretty much have 3 minutes of fart sounds and I would still post it.
