Aminé – hunnybee remix

When he snaps, he’s like an alligator. Aminé’s huneybee remix is a great way to start the year. Very few artists spark my interest with the hint of a new album, besides the greats. That’s not to say they aren’t worthy of my time but there are so many to keep track of. But I always find time for Aminé and his video teaser for…

Kaytranada to release joint EP with Robert Glasper

The ArtScience Remixes will feature 8 reworks from Glasper’s 2016 album ArtScience. I haven’t been having any Kaytranada withdrawal symptoms as I still have 99.9% on heavy rotation and his tracks for Talib Kweli and Lou Phelps quenched my thirst for new music. On that note (pun intended), I’m happy to hear the Montreal musician has teamed up with Robert Glasper for a joint EP…

brandon* – Bodak Purple

Bodak Yellow remixes have yet to run out of steam. Here is brandon*’s ethereal effort, Bodak Purple. I’ve been following brandon* for a while on Instagram so I’m privy to how he constructs his beats. Upon hearing Bodak Purple in the making, I was beyond hyped. And now we have the finished product. Bodak Purple straddles two sonic worlds: the heavenly and the hellacious, and…

Kojo Rigault – Loved Up (House Mix)

A house remix turned a all-but-forgotten track into a gem for Kojo Rigault. Kojo Rigault is a Trinidadian musician who once worked as an A&R scout for Mark Hill (aka half of Artful Dodger) at his Stoosh Records imprint. Loved Up was of little interest to Kojo in terms of releasing until it was discovered and now we have this wicked remix. Dot Inc are…

Leo Napier – Before I Go Away (Le Wanderer Remix)

Leo Napier gets the remix treatment by Le Wanderer on latest single Before I Go Away. A move from the US to Ladbroke Grove may puzzle some but there’s no mistaking Leo Napier’s vocal qualities. The US-born London-based singer has made a bit of a name for himself, lending his talents to Gramatik’s Native Son and now he looks to embark on his solo career…

Clement Marfo – Let The Music Play

Clement Marfo returns with a new single including some incredible remixes. On the back of sync music success Breathe of Fresh Air, Clement Marfo is back with follow up track Let The Music Play. The song is lyrically stripped, focussing on the meta-subject of music and how it has the power to heal. Stream it below along with two remixes.

Scott Xylo – ESP (XK Remix)

Our very own Scott Xylo gets the remix treatment by our very own Xomodo on “ESP”. Despite having a collective of dope artists, we’ve yet to have any of them sample each other. Until now. Newest recruit Xomodo decided it was time to rectify that and chose Scott Xylo’s ESP as his blank canvas. The resulting masterpiece changed the vibe completely, from hazy spiritualism into…
