This is a great example of the new school of funk/R&B/soul/Hip-Hop. The bass ripples underneath funky synth wobbles and crackling drums. This glistens with smooth cool. Love it. It’s also on free download.
If you were looking for something dope, look no further. Jorja Smith hosts all her talents on this one, a great soul voice, spoken word and thought provoking lyrics. Electric pianos riff alongside classic soul drums. This is that reminiscent vibe, it made me thinking of running round London as a youth. This is one … More Jorja Smith – Blue Lights
Are you ready for something new? Check this track out. A beautifully constructed piece of electro soul from Africaine 808, a band based in Berlin. Their instrument of choice is their namesake, the mighty 808. A machine that is so pliable, that in the right hands makes magic. This track hosts deep bass 808 tones, soft … More Africaine 808 – Ready For Something New
I must have slept on this beat. It was released for free download about 7 months ago via digital label Triangulum. Two days ago, Dizzee Rascal was on Sway in the Morning and absolutely merked the ‘5 fingers of Death’ freestyle challenge, the bonus bars were spit over this banger. It’s a grime bass remix … More DJ Cable – Justified
Gravez is one of my favourite producers about now, and GoldLink is one of my favourite my rappers. So together the matrimony on this one is holy. Warping synthy bells, post-modern hip-hop drums and vocal samples. GoldLink’s rides the beat like a pro; he brings that trademark flow that always make me bounce. Just wait … More GoldLink – Zipporah (Gravez Remix)
This is so nice. Noname Gypsy’s words glide across the soulful hip-hop beat perfectly. Her flow is complemented by that smooth soul vocal that SPZRKT brings on everything. Lovely vocal layering in the chorus. It reminds me of that 1990s vibe that all of us are craving so much. Heavy rotation with this one.
HOMIES ONLY is a collective from Los Angeles, and all the acts on the roster are doing some pretty special things. This freestyle is something to special. The slow trap type beat is built up with vocal layering from Crystal Mec who brings the soul on it. The back to back bars from Tyler Cole … More HOMIES ONLY Collective – HOMECOMING FREESTYLE V2
This one is something to bounce to. Dope grooving bassline, robotic trap drum flicks and a sick funk guitar. This is that post-modern R&B that I love. Nice work here.
He’s at it again. Fucking it up. Again. Low tones of bassy wobbles, high pitched vocals spraying methodically all over the place, big claps and then at the 1.30 min mark a dope garage switch up. This sounds like an ESX-1 sampler having sex with a PC. Dope shit once again from Sam G. Tune … More Sam Gellaitry – payme
Everything The Tailors touch turns to funky deep house. Here they remix The Whitest Boy Alive’s 1517. Slightly pitched and sped up, this remix does the original a whole lot of justice. Classic house drums, funky electric pianos and nice sampling. Summery groove for the wintery times. Enjoy. Listen to the original HERE.
