Cage — Take the Elephant (Nebbra Remix)
Nebbra is often compared to Flume, and this remix helps to exemplify why. The use of synths mixed with upbeat horn instruments, both of which fluctuate between different levels of intensity throughout, come together nicely on this brand-new remix.
Laurel — Shells
19-year-old singer/songwriter/producer Laurel is out with her latest track “Shells,” which was originally purely acoustic (and written when Laurel was just 17). This version of the song, however, transitions from slow misery to a hip-hop infused head bobber.
Ab-Soul — These Days (Feat the O’My’s)
TDE artist Ab-Soul has released “These Days” in anticipation of his upcoming album of the same name. The laidback feeling remains intact besides Ab-Soul’s impressively fast-paced flow.
Lana Del Rey — Flipside
In honor of LDR’s album release today, it’s only appropriate to give her a shout out with my current flavor off the record, “Flipside.” Like the rest of the new album, the song is void of any heavy percussion or hip-hop ambience, allowing us to focus on the actual voice of the artist we love (or hate).
Mainland — Leave the Lights On
I’ve written about up-and-comers Mainland before, and am excited to show their new music video for “Leave the Lights On,” featuring the talented cuties skateboarding through the streets of NYC.
