Andrew’s Music Monday: It’s been a minute
Wow it’s been a long, long time since I’ve done one of these. And in true-to-myself style, it’s late. Might as well get right to it.
This track by Kingdom and Kelela has been in so many DJ sets as of late and there’s a good reason. This tune is heading straight for anthem status and I hope no one stops playing it out. Really awesome to see people really pushing the sounds of “club music”. If you’re into this kinda thing, check out a 74-minute set Kingdom did last July.
Next we’ve got a new hour-long mix Brenmar did for Diplo/BBC Radio 1. Lot of really great new cuts in here with a few of the classics. I’ve had this on repeat for a while.
Here we’ve got a great bootleg from Dev/Null, of one of my favorite songs form The-Dream. Not only that, it’s a jungle remix!
PARTYNEXTDOOR was just signed to Drake’s label, and for a good reason. Although there’s not much info on PND, the tunes are incredible. It’ll be interesting to see who this producer is. And of course I’m waiting for more material.
The-Dream and Jay-Z. Enough said.
This reggae tune has been huge around the world for the past 10 years but there’s almost no love for it in the States. I definitely hadn’t heard it until it was shared with me. Weird.
Groundisalva has released a huge “Treasure Chest” of remixes in support for his upcoming tour. Be sure to catch the footwork Katy Perry remix.
Bonus round for those still with me:
DJ Q talks about his favorite vocal 2-step garage tunes.
Helix releases a few club bootlegs on bandcamp.
August Alsina The Product 2 Mixtape.
