The Only Thing That’s Real


Just brought a new bundle of joy into my life in the form of a 5-month old puppy. Been a pretty busy week of dog treats, pet shops, rabies vaccines, and chew toys, but it’s all more than worth it to have this lil guy smiling and prancing around in the backyard. Lots of new tunes this week, but I think the Aloe Blacc / Pharrell collabo sums up most accurately where I’m at. Love is a real thing, that much I know. More of a mellow, late night, moody playlist overall this week, but it could also be a very appropriate soundtrack to lovemaking… so have fun.

Aloe Blacc :       Love Is The Answer collabo with the perpetually funky Pharrell from his new EP (Avicii smash notably absent).

Victor Démé :       Djon Maya (Synapson Remix) mid-tempo soulful french folk house. Check more of his work here.

Sango ft. SPZRKT :       Middle Of Things (J Boogie Edit) Sango been killin lately, but my homie J Boogie just took this tune right into the pocket.

Phenomenal Handclap Band :       The Written Word (Dee & Kenan's TBA Remix) nice psyched out head nod version from this NYC crew

John Wizards :       Lusaka By Night South African lo-fi trippiness gets a double thumbs up from me

MØ Ft. Diplo :       XXX 88 interesting foray into triumphant dark pop hop. Kinda sounds like a mix of Santigold & Lykke Li over a trap beat. Not mad at this.

Autre Ne Veut :       Counting pretty out there, hazy white-boy crooning over jittery electronic beats

Banks :       This Is What It Feels Like loving everything I hear from this girl right now, especially this one produced by Jamie Woon.

London Grammar :       Stay Awake &       High Life discovered this group on the Disclosure album, can’t say I’m crazy about their whole debut album, but these tunes an a few others are definitely doin it for me.

Dirg Gerner :       Before It's Over &       Got Your Back more soulful slinky beat insanity from the highly reliable Eglo label.

Myron & E :       I Can't Let You Get Away new retro soul duo on the Stonesthrow label comes super correct on this one which I discovered when they played it live on KCRW

Sick Beats (To Cure The Flu)

Came down with a nasty bug this week. Might be connected to my overwhelming disgust at the Zimmerman not guilty verdict, but this ain’t a politics blog, so I’ll spare you my rant. Instead, I’ve decided to share with you this heavy dose of new heaters in between consecutive nose blowing fits and coughing convulsions. Lots of latin & global bass tunes in the playlist, also partly inspired by the fun-as-hell Tormenta Tropical party that I did last Friday alongside DJ Theory, Oro11 & Paul Devro. Gotta keep my energy up for 4 more consecutive nights of DJ-ing this week, so hopefully these joints will keep me on my feet… If you want to see more bizarre pics of insanely groomed dogs, check out the spread by Ren Netherland up now at Juxtapoz.

Thornato :       Gaita Gaita
serious anthem alert from my NYC homie Thor. Check out the full compilation on ZZK where this tune can be found.

Ondatropica :       El Caiman Y El Gallinazo (Atropolis Remix)
dopeness runs in the blood, ’cause this one from Atropolis (Thor’s cousin and Cumba Mela compatriot) is also seriously fiya

So Shifty :       Rude Gal (ft. Paco Mendoza) &       Rumba (Peligrosa Remix)
I’m loving these guys‘ productions and am very much looking forward to an album in the future…

Los Cojolites :       Luna Negra (Uproot Andy Remix)
Kabaka International :       Mangala Special (Uproot Andy Remix)
from another of my NY friends (and Que Bajo co-founder), Andy murked this whole worldwide mix. Cop the EP for FREEEEE

Novalima :       Diablo (Xacosa Remix) &       Mamaye (Seiji Remix)
taken from this dope new EP on Wonderwheel. Get it.

Octa Push :       Afroinscope &       Ali Dom ft. Braima Galissa
big shouts to DJ Nadi for puttin me on to this one. Very influenced by SBTRKT, but I ain’t mad at that one bit.

Clap! Clap! :       Hold On (ft. LSWR)
&       Please Mother Rain Wash Our Souls From Human Evil
thanks due to Soundbwoy Surian for the heads up on this guy.

Elvis Crespo :       Suavemente (Kennedy Jones Trap Remix)
certified dancefloor destroyer, you have been warned.

B.Lewis & Sango      Não é Nada
Brazilian electro trap monster

L D R U :       The Tropics
space music right here. This one makes me go dumb every time.
