Our Song for Sunday this week is Michael Jackson’s original demo of I Can’t Help It. I’ve spent the weekend in Nice and it’s been so warm and relaxing. Last night, I was at a port party and the DJ was killing it with some of the finest black music remixes you can think of. One of them was a remix of Michael Jackson’s original…
Our Song for Sunday this week is Knxwledge’s rownmywai[TWRK]. You know when you listen to a song and you have to wheel it up about 5 or 6 times because it’s so good but it’s too short? That’s how I feel about rownmywai[TWRK]. It’s one of Knxwledge’s TWRK’s and this one uses the same sample as the original – Teedra Moses’s Be Your Girl. Like…
Bugz in the Attic’s Consequences is our Song for Sunday this week. Shout out to Theodore Taylor for the inspiration. I’ve been bumping this track on hot sunny days for years and, for once, the UK has provided plenty this weekend. For the uninitiated, Bugz in the Attic is a collective of DJs and producers from West London. Their debut album Back in the Doghouse…
There’s not one but two songs for this week’s Song For Sunday: Prince’s She Spoke To Me and Michael Jackson’s Call On Me.

Jay Worthy’s Lost My Lex is our Song for Sunday. This selection comes courtesy of @Mr_Odin. Short but sweet, Jay Worthy throws some deep tones over a signature Alchemist beat. This track is definitely for cruising in your drop top before sunset. If you’re fortunate to have one. Stream it below.
Somi’s They’re Like Ghost is our Song for Sunday. Heard this today on Somi’s latest album, Petite Afrique. Absolutely gorgeous. Nothing more to stay. Stream it below.
Beres Hammond’s They Gonna Talk is our Song for Sunday. Something cool and relaxing this week from rocksteady giant Beres Hammond. This was a staple of my teen years. Happy Jamaican Independence Day! 🇯🇲 🇯🇲 🇯🇲
Broadcast’s The Book Lovers is our Song for Sunday. Something a little left field this week, courtesy of author Siân S. Rathore.
Smino’s Anita is our Song for Sunday. Do not sleep on Smino. Anita is taken from his debut album blkswn and demonstrates his rapping talents alongside some fine production from Soulection alumnus Monte Booker. Stream it below.
Kaytranada’s Lite Spots is our Song for Sunday. Loved this to begin with but discovering the original sample has rekindled my obsession. Then there’s the video, featuring the flyest dancers and a robot following suit. Taken from Kaytranada’s emphatic debut, 99.9%.
