So I’ve got a Facebook page (follow me here for almost daily updates) where I’m constantly posted links to songs I’m feeling at the moment. But after awhile I started to realize that that page reaches a different from this one so in case you’re not following me on that page, you can catch up on some things that have caught my ear:
The jury is still out on whether or not I like Anderson Paak’s style but he absolutely slays his chorus/verse on this woozy love song by Blended Babies (Asher Roth does alright, but still not a fan of his style).
Brenk Sinatra continues to show why he’s one of the best beat makers at the moment on this late-night sounding track from his new album.
Going back to the past, listen to demo version of a song that would eventually be a MJ classic.
Rounding out this week’s selections comes from underground party curators, Boiler Room, and up-and-comer Mr. Ties, with one of the best DJ sets I’ve heard in a long time. A journey through slow-mo house and disco and a lot of records being played at the wrong speed to great effect.
One of the greatest to ever do it, rapper Nas details every about the history of his come-up, his reading habits, and mentoring the younger generation about hip-hop and life in an excellent conversation with NPR.
