It’s Monday, so it’s time for your Weekly Set fix. As you can see below, the last seven days brought forth a range of interesting audio and video releases. Plastic Plates’ refix of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain” certainly was one of last week’s highlights. Electronica-infused beats coupled with one of the industry’s strongest voices seems to be a sure shot. Spot numero dos belongs to N*E*R*D’s Chad Hugo, who delivered an intriguing rendition of Lupe Fiasco’s Kenna-powered “What U Want.” The powerful tune appears on Fool’s Gold’s latest Missile Command compilation, so make sure to grab the piece here. Last week also saw the emergence of the first single off Eminem and Royce Da 5’9”‘s upcoming Bad Meets Evil EP. Entitled “Fast Lane,” the track does the lyrical reputation of both emcees more than justice. The Beastie Boys have already proven that they made one of this year’s most impacting comebacks due to their new opus Hot Sauce Committee Part Two. One reason for this is their strong collaboration with Santigold in “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win.” Parisian beatsmith Kirikoo Des rounds up the latest top five with his excellent minimal house interpretation of The Weekend’s House of Balloons cut “What You Need.”

Further audio highlights encompass Mac Miller’s “Talk About,” the hilarious Lonely Island and Snoop Dogg get together “Turtleneck & Chain,” Star Slinger’s tuneful remix of How to Dress Well’s “Ready for the World,” CJ Hilton’s Nas-assisted “So Fresh,” and Donnis’s The Weekend-inspired “Loft Music.”

Regarding music videos, we saw CyHi Da Prynce’s “Top of the World,” Dead Prez’s “Beauty Within,” Beyoncé’s “Move Your Body,” Karmin’s intriguing rendition of Weezy’s “6 Foot 7 Foot,” Lupe Fiasco and Skylar Grey’s “Words I Never Said,” Lykke Li’s tipsy “Sadness is a Blessing,” the romantic visualization of the Star Slinger edit of Gold Panda’s “Marriage,” some-behind-the-scenes impressions of M.I.A.’s never finished “XXXO,” Swizz Beatz and Eve’s “Coolin’” reunion, Jay Electronica’s “Dimethyltryptamine,” Fonzworth Bentley’s sun-drenched “Venice Beaches,” Incubus’s “Adolescents,” Kenna’s “Chains,” and last but not least Lil B’s entertaining Justin Bieber impersonation. Now enjoy in the audio recap below.
