Our team is still soaking up rays down in Central America but that’s not holding us back from getting up this weeks Special. We created the Weekend Special to highlight up-and-coming artists and producers who are pushing the bar on innovation and moving the needle on musicality. There is no rhyme or reason for our selections, or particular genres or areas of focus for our weekly compilation, although of late we’ve been backing into a lot of future / abstract beats, hip-hop and jazzy dance music.
This weeks Special starts off fast with a house bump from PYRMDPLAZA and a tempo fluctuating gem by Lehvi, before moving into a few old-school R&B remixes by DÉFENSE and Justin de Guzman. Rising colletive / platform PLAY IT LOUDER makes their third consecutive appearance in our Special with an elegant number from Cosmic Quest dubbed “Moonbow”, while Australian collective / label wú-xì makes their first appearance with a tribal trap banger from Swindail titled “Shoko Jam”. The compilation concludes with one of our favorite finds this month, a cautious and chilling psych-hop track titled “no ebola” from rapper uhlife and Soulection producer NiceGuyxVinny.
Big s/o to every artist involved. Have a great weekend!
