My week in music (Sunday 11 October)
I’ve mostly been shuffling through my main library, and that returned quite a mixed bag. With that said, it’s mostly throwbacks. Link to the playlist(Spotify)
J Dilla - Bye. 🔗
I feel like Slum Village used this beat in one of their productions, but I can’t remember the track, lovely listen nonetheless.
Edit: Not Slum Village, it was Common. Here is the track.
Sandwell District - Grey Cut Out (Version) 🔗
Man, these guys were probably the highlight of the week. This track was taken from their 2011 album, Feed Forward, I think I spent all of Tuesday listening to Sandwell District.
36 - Wave Variations 🔗
36 has quickly become a staple in my library, this is one of the artists that’s influenced my current go-to coding/deep-work playlist, titled Ambient. Wave Variations is packed with warm sounds, that perfectly sit & loop in the background.
Highlight tracks include Twelfth Sequence & Seventh Sequence.
Sub Focus Joker - Could This Be Real (Joker Remix) 🔗
Randomly found myself humming this song on Friday, so I quickly found it and played it 10 times🙂It’s as good as i remember
Barker - Look How Hard I’ve Tried 🔗
No idea how I found Barker, but I’m such a big fan of his sound. A gentle, & almost perfectly timed loopy progression, with subtle shifts that you might not catch if you don’t listen close. This track is from Debiasing EP, I saved every single track from that EP, so much fun.
dBridge - Ether 🔗
Hands down one of my favourite finds of the year. Such a calm, while dramatic tune from dBridge.
Claro Intelecto - Through the Cosmos 🔗
It typically takes one good track to inspire a mix or a playlist for me, and Claro Intelecto has been delivering such tunes quite regularly in the past couple of months. This song has a nostalgic feel to it.
Joji - Nectar 🔗
Joji has been a staple for a while now, and I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for new tracks from him. Mixed feelings about the album as a whole, but glad to have some new Joji.
Tmak - Untold Stories 🔗
Top top production quality here. Read such a well crafted review of the album by Mxolisi.
Stormzy - Wiley Flow 🔗
My hype track going into the new week!💪🏾 Latest addition to my workout/hype playlist.
