In just 10 days (while being on tour) Louis Futon has dropped two fantastic remixes after asking his fans for challenge suggestions. The first flip is of Kendrick Lamar’s “Pride” which turns the banging track into a hypnotic head nodder. He got so excited by the response that he’s dropped another remix of Frank Ocean’s “Solo” for good measure, and brings out the brass band sound in full force.
Dewayne Jackson seems like he’s warming up for something big. “Truth Is” is masterclass of rhymes, storytelling and flow. The phenomenal swaying production from Andre Paxton provides the opportunity that Jackson grabs with both hands, spilling his sorrows with energy and elegance that makes you nod your head.
Queens-based rapper and R&B artist Anik Khan dropped his debut 10-track tape and my standout track is “Sunlight”. Solid production from Jarreau Vandal and featuring vocals from Luna, Anik showcases his versatillity, switching seamlessly between spitting rhymes and adding smooth vocals. Check out the rest of the project below.
Soulection’s Dutchmen, Singularis, illustrates that his countryman Jarreau Vandal isn’t the only Sound of Tomorrow crew member with movies. The track he created for the launch compilation of Switzerland-based collective Culture Vibes Movement is smooth but bouncy. Some jazzy Kaytra-shit. Indeed.
Haven’t dropped one of these for a while and I feel like I’ve been sitting on some dope cuts that I actually forgot to post about in the last few months. Round 8. Leggo.
Tom Misch is not contented with just being one of the best songwriters and producers in the world, he’s someone who is always striving to push himself further. He set a goal to write 5 songs in 5 days: a 5 day Mischon, if you will. Collaborating with a different artist on each day with, Misch does not disappoint showcasing his range from rock, hip hop, and jazz, all with that special signature Tom Misch vibe. Stream day one above and catch the rest of 5 below. Read more
FKJ dropped his debut full length album last week and have to say it’s live up to the anticipation. The French maestro puts his trademark multi-instrumental style on record, whose live performances have dazzled audiences for years as he constructs songs one instrument and beat at a time. Do yourself a favor and grab the full album.
Nice trip down memory lane: 2 years ago Mura Masa was still on the cusps of making his first big break. This little 2 minute jaunt is worth revisiting as the transition from oldies sample to bombastic hip hop is just too beautiful to forget.
