No genre, no rules. Songs we love that we think you will too.
“See You Again” / Tyler, The Creator: After a long hiatus from making music, Tyler, The Creator has blessed us with an incredibly crafted album, Flower Boy. See You Again blends soft synths and smooth strings to create a lifted mood, perfect for your ears.
“Fuck That Check Up” (ft. Lil Uzi Vert) / Meek Mill: Wins & Losses, Meek Mill’s latest album release, is certainly filled with highs & lows. One of those high points is “Fuck That Check Up”, featuring Lil Uzi Vert. Meek rings, “Back in this b*tch and we litty again”, while Uzi spits an aggressive verse about life on top.
“Lust for Life” (ft. The Weeknd) / Lana Del Rey: In what may be Lana Del Rey’s best album since Born to Die, Lust for Life encapsulates a wide variety of different sounds and attitudes. The album-titled slow jam highlights the enchanting aura of Lana Del Rey, and the vocal perfectionism of The Weeknd.
“Less Than” / Nine Inch Nails: In anticipation of a headlining spot at New York's Panorama Music Festival, Nine Inch Nails is back with their first music since 2014. This postmodern alternative track is dark and cold, aligning perfectly with the groups catalog.
“No Friends” (ft. ILoveMakonnen) / Chase Atlantic: Australian Chase Atlantic has been bringing us an eclectic mix of great music over the past few months in what has been a staggered three-part album release. The final track on Part Three, “No Friends” is a trap inspired banger that features a surpassingly tasteful verse from urban artist ILoveMakonnen. The bitter and bold chorus rings, “I ain’t got no friends, f-ck a guest list.”
“Wild Thoughts” / DJ Khaled (Medasin Remix): After a string of self released singles and a handful of remixes, Medasin has made a name for himself as one of the most unique electronic artists on the come-up. Remixes for JAHKOY, Martin Garrix, and Portugal. The Man have all blown up to be successful releases for the young producer. Medasin put together a weird but diabolically groovy beat to back vocals by Rihanna and Bryson Tiller.
“Overgrown” / Oh Wonder: Finally, the long awaited Ultralife album by Rock the Dome supporting act Oh Wonder is out! Following the release of several singles such as Heavy and Ultralife, the album features a beautiful blend of its’ two members. Overgrown is a slower, softer song with an acoustic sound complemented by subtle electronic elements.
“Momentum” / Don Diablo: The dance-music legend is back, with a single release “Momentum” that is sure to make you shuffle. With a new sound that fits perfectly into the dance mold that he created for himself, “Momentum” is sure to be played at every dance music festival on the circuit this Summer.
“Sanity” / IshDARR: One of the most slept on artists of 2016, Milwaukee urban contemporary artist IshDARR brings together attitudes and sounds from different genres better than many artists do today. “Sanity” is a chill track that highlights IshDARR’s love and need for music.
