I’ll start this blog by stating the obvious: Drake’s Nothing Was The Same is a masterpiece. We have been spoiled this year with an abundance of quality hip-hop albums: Jay Z, J. Cole, Kanye West, Mac Miller, etc. And the list continues with arguably the best album of the year being released by the Forest Hill kid. I decided not to throw any Drake tracks on the blog this week because I am almost positive that 95% of you are already bumping the album. My favourite cuts off the album you ask? So far… “The Language,” “Worst Behaviour,” “Tuscan Leather” and “Pound Cake.” But to be honest the whole album is tight. Cop it! And to think we still have Pusha T to look forward to!
These tracks are all hot off the press and are guaranteed to fight for air time with your Drake album. Enjoy!
Rita Ora, Emeli Sande and Ellie Goulding are among some of our favourite Britpop stars but there has always been one girl from the UK who I’ve felt is destined for greatness. Katy B has been splept on. Her voice is spectacular and her beat selection is second to none.
I don’t know much about FLXXDS but I do know they have great taste in music. They take City & Colour’s “Two Coins” and give it an electric feel but still keep that acoustic sound relevant. I can’t get enough of this beauty.
The Magician is as funky a DJ you’ll find. His tracks make the dance floor thump on a consistent basis so you can imagine my excitement when I heard his latest release featured the Newtimers (who have a track called “She’s a Gun,” which Chromeo would be proud of) This collaboration is a treat and will be used to crowd the dance floor on all continents.
The Plague Doctor mask is back with a remix of The Magician’s track. Every track I’ve encountered from Claptone has always struck a chord with me. He will be a household name by this time next year. Beatport has proven that.
Oliver Nelson has become a regular on this blog because he drops outstanding work on a weekly basis. However, this joint doesn’t share the same sound that we’ve come to expect from O.N. This track has a much darker feel and if you know me, darker is always better. The last Swede producer to stray down the dark side was Eric Prydz. Ya, that’s a good omen.
Deeeeeeep house time. Hot Natured might be regarded as one of the best group of DJs in the history of deep house when this is all said and done. This track is off their album Different Sides of The Sun, which is worth the purchase. This track is the bee’s knees. I swear.
From the deep sounds of Hot Natured to the big room anthem courtesy of Vicetone. I’m a little tardy on this track, which is odd because usually anything from Vicetone I’m all over. The Dutch duo have a great ability to make a big room track feel intimate. The reverbed synths on this are out of control. Take it for a spin.
A couple of weeks ago I gave you the newest joint from French DJ Brodinski, “Give Me Back The Night.” This track is receiving a lot of attention, so much so a video seemed necessary. Ever wonder what a DJ’s mouth’s view is? Wait no longer.Tweet
