Laura D and Three Wise team up yet again to bring this weeks top picks for the Dirt! Check out some chill vibes from Patchrik, King Thing, Marvin Gaye and Duncan Murray a lil bit of hip-hop from Childish Gambino, Nosaj Thing x Chance The Rapper and uplifting deep cuts from Kill Them With Colour, Kenny Gray and Autograf.
Laura D.’s Picks:
Haerts – Wings (Shlohmo Remix)
Shlohmo is king of making me excited to listen to sad shit. He hasn’t failed me yet.
Patchrik – Cool Down
Part of the free EP from Patchrik on Live For The Funk… check out the interactive visuals that come with it too.
King Thing – Glissement
I guess this guy has moved on to another project and sort of left everything in his figurative house out in a “FREE” pile on the figurative lawn of the internet. Surprisingly all nine tracks are really fucking cool. If these are the leftovers from his old project, I’m expecting some really awesome stuff from his new one.
Phazz – Sights (Shake It Maschine & Mr.Pigman Remix)
Big Footwork remix of one of my favorite upcoming producers. The whole remix EP is free.
Jerome LOL – Always (Bondax DJ Tool)
Man Jerome’s new Deleted/Fool EP is so fucking good. Been listening to it nonstop. Bondax puts their classic touch on “Always” for a lil free giveaway.
Drake – Come Thru (James Blake Version)
I mean, come on. Do I need to explain myself here? (I don’t) Sidenote: The new James Blake Radio1 Takeover is the best thing ever. Tune in when it’s on.
Childish Gambino – Melrose
This was an in the cut track that Gambino tweeted to Jhene Aiko a while back. It’s dope.
Nosaj Thing x Chance The Rapper – Paranoia
Another rapper’s ‘in the cut’ track, this was a secret track on Chance’s legendary Acid Raps mixtape from last year. I guess it was part of the awesome “Songs From Scratch” series, which also saw to the Shlohmo x Jerimih and Ryan Hemsworth x Tinashe collabs.
Three Wise’s Picks:
French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore – The Fire (Autograf Remix)
This remix is what is currently warming me up in my frigid New York apartment.
Kenny Gray – Speak Easy (Original Mix)
The homie Kenny Grey drops this downtempo rocktronica ballad featuring great vocals and his signature swagger.
Mos Def – Ms. Fat Booty (Louis Futon Remix)
I can’t stop shaking my ass to this song. Ms. Fat Booty for real. It sounds like sippin’ champagne in a private plane.
Jonah McGowan – Stronger (Kill Them With Colour Remix)
Jonah McGowan’s vocals make me want to melt, add Kill Them With Colour’s deep house bass and the result is this fantastic club anthem. Go Deep. Always.
Marvin Gaye – Let’s Get It On (Jimmy Q Remix)
I don’t really think much needs to be said besides let’s get it on. This track has “sex playlist” written all over it.
Imaginary Friends – Love & Groove (feat. Sedric Perry)
Sedric Perry has GOT IT. Just try not to dance to this jam. I would buy a car so I could groove on the road to this.
Little May – Hide (Duncan Murray Remix)
