This is honestly one of the nicest tunes I’ve heard this year. So chilled. Mall Grab plays in beautifully jazzy electric piano chords and riffs, underneath lies the house drum beat.

We are all waiting on tenterhooks for Frank Ocean’s next work. Channel Orange left us immediately wanting more and the only thing that’s been keeping me going are covers like this. I saw Samm Henshaw at Hoxton Bar & Grill nearly a year ago now, and he blew the roof off. He has one of … More Samm Henshaw Ft. Kojey Radical – Pink Matter (Live)
