Viceroy - The Life (featuring Penguin Prison)
lest we forget that summer is all around us.
Damian Lazarus & The Ancien Moons - Lovers’ Eyes (Mohe Ki Najariya)
So, Movement was awesome. Damian Lazarus closing with this track at the Beatport stage while the sun was setting was even awesome-er.
Justin Martin & Eats Everything - Steven Jello
how timely to find this. justin martin will be playing here in ny tomorrow night at a verboten ‘do. not sure i’ll be able to make it, but hopefully! especially if i’ll be hearing house jams of this caliber. and right as the weather is finally looking up. something crisp and sharp with some swagger to get you in the groove.
MNEK - Every Little Word
greetings from tokyo. i’ve been foaming at the mouth for this precious moment and now it’s here. i’ve been dying to hear this single ever since MNEK posted his Mixtape Vernacular a few months ago, which featured the most tantalizing snippet of this absolute banger. it dropped yesterday and has received a storm of praise already, deservedly. anyone who follows this blog knows how obsessed i am with him, but this song is such a jam. maybe a little early to be identifying songs of the summer but after the winter we had, forgive me for being premature. i won’t bother detailing the many wonderful nuances of his production because i just want to keep replaying it and loving it and i hope you will too.
i’m an evangelizing believer about the church of mnek, take a pew :)
Ben Abraham - Violin (Amos Lee cover)
stumbled into this lovely cover. love this boy’s soulful voice, he shreds the chorus.
