Classixx · Holding On

Every time I hear this start off it instantly reminds me of Solange’s Losing You, it’s that rhythm or somethin’. Classixx also enrolled some brand spankin fresh vocals for ‘Holding On,’ one’s I can’t find credited anywhere… (disappointing) Besides that, this is a clear cut classic, as Classixx tends to always push out.

Norman Greenbaum · Spirit in the Sky (Remix)

D.veloped with a remix that's pushing his production forward

D.veloped went up and remixed Norman Greenbaum’s classic of rock classics, ‘Spirit in the Sky,’ with a Pretty Lights like, electro-funk sound. It’s a well polished electro tribute and The Hendrix & Stones sampling is a nice touch. Good step in the right direction, D.veloped.

Night Panther · Fire

Blazin' up a few nostalgic sounds from my past

Night Panther’s ‘Fire’ strangely reminds me of a few different random-ass things. For the first few bars when the vocals kick in, the song slightly reminds me of Home Alone and the nostalgic flashbacks of Kevin preparing for his prankster ways on Marv & Harry (told you it was random). Then it goes on to sounding like a Starfucker bonanza at around 2 minutes past with electro sounds a-blazin’. It finally closes out by returning to that signature Night Panther falsetto with crisp bars of brass behind it, like always (or one other time).

Prince & 3rd Eye Girl · Let’s Go Crazy

A step in the right direction for this R&B royalty

So Prince & his newly formed band with the girls of 3rd Eye Girl have revived ‘Lets Go Crazy’ for 2013. This thing is an electro rock, bluesy bass beast, and more than anything it’s just nice to see Prince perform something so fresh. I’ve seen too much negative publicity around his dislike for remix & covers, so this is a nice turn around, though I’m sure there’s more to the story & this bad ass remake than we know right now. Still. Today, is a good day for music.

5 Reasons · Night Drive In Moscow

featuring Patrick Baker on vocals

Alright, this shit is just getting too damn sexy. If you knew me in “real” life, you’d know this is just way too sexy for me. I’m in fact the polar opposite of how sexy this is (I’m workin on it). Anyways. These Russian fucks going by 5 Reasons make some soulful shit that, again, is just too sexy for me (I can’t highlight this enough). However, most of the soul in this actually hails from good ol’ Nashville, Tennessee. Patrick Baker has some fuckin charm in his vocals and 5 Reasons adds just the right touch to it. So Sexy.

A Lesson in WMNSTUDIES

The music producers, not the study of the sex.

I forget how we met, but WMNSTUDIES & I got something goin on. I loved their Too Damn Dope remix so much I went through their entire SoundCloud sounds and came up with two other female vocalists remixed right. They’ve got a sound similar to Late Nite Tuff Guy, relaxing the hell out of me each & every time, and I can’t wait for what’s next on the agenda. These somethings are So Smoooth.

Cosmo Sheldrake · Rich (feat. Anna Roo)

Alotta pontial stewed up in this country-fried gem

When I first heard this, I thought it was some track of Anna Kendrick off the Perfect Pitch soundtrack …not that I’ve listened to it… Anyways, I originally thought I’d be one of the first to post this ‘Rich’ track, but boy was I wrong. As it stands, this porch-friendly jam sesh has hit 50,000 plays on SoundCloud and I’m sure there’s a helluva lot more to come. Hope these two team up for some more, alotta room for growth here.

Paper Diamond & Christian Rich · XIX

feat. Angela McCluskey -- let's just say I didn't post this just because of Paper D

First few listens of ‘XIX’ and those Angela McCluskey vocals are the only thing I wanna talk about. Yet like so many other distinct vocalists, they’re so hard to put into words. What I will say is that Paper Diamond & Christian Rich matched her sound right with one cosmically-rich beat. Plus that future soul theme doesn’t hurt, love me some skewed up vocals.

One thing I am questioning is how much Angela’s voice feels drowned out at times. But to its credit, it can be done well, and actually has been specifically with Paper Diamond. But who knows for now, it’s hard if not impossible to fully digest a song in less than 24 hours.

SOHN · The Wheel

Indie-electro seduction

This SOHN beat is a bit out there, but that’s what we love best. It’s got a very crisp sound to it and put together with these indie-sedating vocals, ‘The Wheel’ is one electro-indie seduction. My one issue with it goes back to the beat. The sample of the sticks get to be too repetitive and just doesn’t have enough variance. Still, some very good qualities to it, namely those vocals.

Rhye · 3 Days

I'm killin you. So many ways.

Rhye’s 3 Days has been growin on me for the last few. Robin Hannibal pulls the beat forward with her voice, directing it ever so slightly. And that switch up with about a minute left, love it all the more every time I hear it. Her style reminds me of an old R&B queen, but I can’t quite pin it yet. Thinkin Sade, but she’s always on my mind, so… there’s that.

Props to Hype Machine Radio, aka d_e_v, for this beaut. We’ve got a nice remix of Rhye’s comin out soon, so make sure to tune in for that (or just listen in now).
