MNDSGN is a beatmaker from LA. He never fails to bring a funk-soul vibe to anything tune he touches. This is a top remix of Selah Sue’s I Won’t Go For More.

Woi. This is something. Aj Tracey is smashing up the grime scene at the moment and has been doing so since Naila dropped. This switch up is fire.

Blasé is a producer from Montreal, and he’s come to my attention with this remix of his fellow countryman’s certified banger LITE SPOTS.

Chris McClenney never fails to bring the funk. McClenney drops the grooving drum patterns, funk bassline and beautiful synths.

This jazz funk remix is definitely a jam, and … More Jamie Woon – Sharpness (KAYTRANADA EDIT)
