I love his new album No Fantasy Required. Was tough choosing one favorite track.
Ultralight Beam (feat. Chance the Rapper & Kirk Franklin)
When it comes to Kanye I always prefer the production over the lyrics.
Erol Alkan’s Extended Mix
Aww yeah! It’s been a while since Erol Alkan has put out a remix — it was worth the wait.
Maggie’s Last Party
Beats & Bass mix
I don’t know much about this song but it’s crazy and weird and I love it.
Action (feat. Cat Power)
I never would’ve predicted these two artists (Cassius and Cat Power/Chan Marshall) two collaborate. But they did. And it’s great.
In the Air Tonight (feat. Delacey)
This is for my Phil Collins-loving friend Aurea Astro.
I’m In Control (feat. Popcaan)
Hi & Low
Do It, Try It
This song took a few listens but then it really caught me. It’s not what I would’ve expected from M83 — which could be exciting. New album out soon.
Druid Caravan of Smoke
So Rick Rubin produced an album of a bunch of electronic music artists doing songs inspired by Star Wars. I love a bunch of the tracks — they are weird, funny, exciting. But this dark one by Shlohmo is definitely my favorite.
We seem to be haunted by the randomness of life and alternate versions of reality.
