BADBADNOTGOOD – IV
BADBADNOTGOOD demonstrate their capacity for virtuosic otherworldliness on their newest album, IV. The opening track, “And That, Too” is a cleansing listen for the tired mind. For more on the process behind their latest release, check out our interview with the band here.
Jerreau – Soulection Radio Show #268
Jerreau connects the dots on Soulection Radio Show #268, balancing the likes of Sampha, Esthero and Robert Glasper with classic J Dilla grooves. Vibe to this. Early.
Toro Y Moi – “現 A 実 S は I 何 A も B あ O り I ま Z せ Z ん”
Crafted during Toro Y Moi’s last Asia Tour, Chaz Bundwick taps into ‘70s and ‘80s Japan. Delve into Toro Y Moi’s ever-expanding palette with this nostalgic mix.
Jeremih – Late Nights: Europe
The product of an international tour and a close partnership with Milwaukee producer Soundz, Jeremiah’s Late Nights: Europe makes for a sensual start to the day. The mixtape enlists the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Krept and Konan and Ty Dolla $ign.
Floating Points – “For Marmish Part II”
“For Marmish Part II” is an airy, ambient 14-minute track with soft keys and drifting atmospherics. Allow Floating Points to guide you out of your dream state the first of two tracks from their latest Kuiper EP.
Rome Fortune – VVORLDVVIDE PIMPSATION
Rome Fortune goes large with VVORLDVVIDE PIMPSATION, a confident follow-up to last year’s SMALL VVORLD. Listen to the Atlanta hero talk his talk over trap beats with a tempered thoughtfulness, featuring production from BloodPop, Ethereal and Toro y Moi.
Charlie Heat – Till August
Opening with a bass-boosted, theatrical take on Dat $tick by internet sensation Rich Chigga, Till August is G.O.O.D. Music producer Charlie Heat’s loud call to attention. Shake away the sleep with this banging remix project in anticipation of his upcoming compilation album.
BONES – PaidProgramming2
The internet’s graveyard god resurrects his widely revered project PaidProgramming with a 24-track sequel. Wake up to BONES’ latest release as he sings, growls and yells odes to his long, tortured come-up in the swamps of hip-hop’s underground.
Thom Yorke – Radiohead Bedtime Mix
For the half-asleep, we recommend Thom Yorke’s Bedtime mix. Drift through your morning with the Radiohead frontman’s cerebral half-hour on Tim Haggart’s BBC Radio 1 set, featuring a live rendition of “Bloom” from last year’s ‘Pathway to Paris’ concert at Le Trianon.
