Amiens, France Beauvois revamps the latest Flume & Moses Sumney track “Weekend”.
Nice little hypnotic cover from Wingtip of Postal Service’s infamous “Such Great Heights”
If you don’t care for Ed Sheeran, this might be the only chance you have to experience the power his songs have over the majority of the world’s population. Equipped with brass horns galore, the guys from Too Many Zooz absolutely kill it.
A Lido, Heavy Mellow, Santell and Brasstracks cover of Sorry? Um, yes please. Horns, guitar, and RNB for the weekend BBQ.
Lisbon’s Moullinex teams up with Lorenz Rhode for an ultra groovy cover of Stevie Wonder. From the crazy talkbox vocals from Rhode to the bouncy bass from Moullinex, this is a great tribute to the Wonderman.
Valentine’s Day may have been yesterday but The Lonely Players Club aka gnash, Goody Grace, 4e, & rosabeales haven’t really gotten over it. They’ve covered the classic 2000s RnB sound of Cam’Ron and Juelz Santana and blended a bit of 2016 into the mix. Top vibes!
Anything Kanye and Kendrick can do, Freddie Gibbs can do better (at least with the help of his trusted collaborator, super-producer MadLib). As Kanye West ramps up promotion for his new album
Swish Waves, he released his track “No More Parties in L.A. with the help of a fire verse from Kendrick Lamar. Honestly, when it first came out a week or so ago I thought the sample sounded straight out of Freddie Gibb’s Piñata album. Low and behold, last night Freddie Gibbs took the same sample and cranked it up a notch with his version “Cocaine Parties in L.A.” Somehow, don’t expect Kanye to come after Freddie the way he lit up Wiz on Twitter.
Brighton’s Birkwin Jersey reworks Kendrick Lamar and flips his vibe completely. The wonderfully crafted cover is the result of excellent stripping down of the original’s beat and transforming it into a hazy, gloomy, slow plucked ukulele ballad. Shout out to my boy Hatemz for the spot.
