Second single by a new 22 year old, Toronto singer, Lemon. Very excellent. Look forward to hearing what else this promising artist might have in store moving ahead.
90s West Coast hip-hop stalwart, Warren G
sampling interpolating UK band, Madness‘s classic hit, “Our House” for this track from his forthcoming (Aug. 6) Regulate… G Funk Era Part II EP project. Also a quick snippet of Rhythm Controll‘s “My House” (probably by way of Mr. Fingers‘ “Can You Feel It?”) at the top of the song too and can’t forget, R.I.P., the legendary Nate Dogg.
One remix (from April! #latepass), the other a Frank Ocean cover. Between being down at the Pan Am Games Panamania Live last weekend and this cemented for me IRL terms just how massive Diplo has become. Hearing Major Lazer and Jack U songs everywhere has become S.O.P. nowadays. Crazy! Speaking of which, Mad Decent Block Party starts July 31. Act accordingly….
Signing off for the night with slightly B’more flavored late night refix of Aaliyah‘s “Are You That Somebody” by APSPDR+, a Harlem based producer/DJ who, for the most dedicated of you out there, you may be familiar with from his work on SZA‘s first EP, SeeSZARun.
Excellent late night vibes by a singer/producer duo out of the Philippines. Highly recommended….

Unlike my Favorite Albums of 2014 List posted yesterday there is some sense of what was more liked versus less liked here on my Favorite Songs (not necessarily just singles) List of 2014. The Top 10 is the 10 songs I voted for in this year’s Village Voice Pazz and Jop poll and my number […]
I explained pretty well the criteria I used to do my year-end list back in 2012 but for those of you too lazy to click that link, this is not a list of the ‘best’, most commercially successful or most critically acclaimed albums. The only acclaim these albums have are that they are my favorites. […]
What can I say about Melbourne, Australia’s Audego? I discovered this trip hop electronic soul duo while doing a little side gig hustle screening submissions for NXNE this year and I have been a committed fan ever since checking out both of their shows when they flew halfway around the world to perform twice at […]
