Day 383: Chillmode - August Spotify Playlist ft. Majid Jordan, PND, Lil Silva, FKA Twigs & More

This playlist was more mellow than the June playlist as I was stuck on tunes from Majid Jordan, PartyNextDoor, Doja Cat, and FKA Twigs. I was also rotating in Lil Silva's EP called Mabel on the reg as his indie electro beats were on-point and put me in a good mood.

Can't forget -- this was a time I got familiar with Yung Lean, Broods, Anna of the North, and Goldlink. Check them out.

I'm also a big supporter of The Underachievers so I had to put in the tracks I liked from their recent album Cellar Door and threw some of their oldies as throwbacks.

I'm always open to listening to new music so shoot me something new I haven't heard before (trust me, I listen to almost everything in the direction of hip-hop/rap, ambient chillwave, indie electro/house, indie r&b, indie pop, some indie rock, some trap, etc.). You get the picture, whatevs.

Day 382: The June playlist I promised (Spotify Playlist)

Just some beats I was on during the Summertime. This was the start of me getting into that indie-electro beat scene (aka new age electro aka electro-hop) and expanding into indie R&B artists like Dream Koala, James Blake, Movement, FKA Twigs, and others.  I was also rotating in a lot of Hundred Waters, Broods, and Galimatias at this time. Ohh, I can't forget about G-Eazy too #BayArea 

A good time for learning new music & getting a feel for different sounds, and it was only the beginning of Summer. I'll post up my August playlist in a bit.

Day 381: Music I'm on as of lately (Spotify Playlists)

Been a minute since I've updated this as I've been mad busy at my new job + other things going on. Anyways, I probably won't be updating this as often as I would like to, but I'll start putting up my Spotify playlists of songs I'm currently on. Check out my Soundcloud for other music I'm on that you can't find on Spotify.

I got a June playlist in the works so I'll post that up sometime soon. In the meantime, enjoy my 2014 playlists so far.

Day 380: All aboard the Q train - "What They Want" (Music Video)

Schoolboy Q is on fire right now with his new album release, Oxymoron. Kudos to Q for actively engaging my mind with all this buzz surrounding him & his album (can't get him out of my head, freals). All-n-all, this album is really good; been bumping the album non-stop & I can't get enough of it right now.

Check out my other favorite track after the jump.

Day 379: On Rotation - London Grammar with "Hey Now" (Music Video)

Definitely one my favorite tracks from London Grammar's recent album If You Wait. Like I mentioned before, this is a band to watch out for this year so keep your eyes & ears open for them.

Really excited to see them perform live in LA at the El Rey next month.

Day 378: Turn Up Tuesdays with Flosstradamus - "Mosh Pit" (Music Video)

Seen Flosstradamus a few times live, and I gotta say I've had the most fun at their shows. Their beats are so insanely hard that you can't stop jumping up-n-down (you'd be a fool if you didn't get down with it), and they definitely know how to raise up that crowd energy.

Much applause for what these guys are doing with trap music, and I will probably be seeing them again at Coachella which should be f*cking awesome.

Day 377: The Weeknd remixes "Drunk In Love" (Audio)

This shit right here tho.. ok I'll admit Bey's original version of "Drunk In Love" is pretty good, but The Weeknd does an awesome job creating his own version & darkening it up a bit. If I were to choose which version is better, I'm going with XO.

Day 376: That New-New - SOHN with "Artifice" (Music Video)

Been listening to SOHN rather recently but I'm glad I found out about this d00d. He can will be the next up-n-coming big artist/producer sometime soon; no joke. Just wait for it and thank me later.

**UPDATE: SOHN will release a debut album called Tremors on April 7/8th. Stay tuned for that.

Check out my fav SOHN tracks (so far) after the jump.

Day 375: Added to my playlist - "Fall in Love" by Phantogram (Music Video)

I've heard of Phantogram, but never took the time to listen to them before and now I feel like an idiot. But hey, at least I got them in my radar now, right?

I stumbled on this recent track and boy ohh boy, I'm really feeling the bassy-synth, active drum patterns, and smooth vocals. Just really great structure to the song overall, and the visuals/graphics in the music video is really dope/creative too. I think I'm falling in love with the vocalist but I know I shouldn't based on the lyrics of this song... #heartbroken =X

If you're into Phantogram, get ready for their new album coming out next Tuesday, 2/18, called Voices. Pre-order here.

More Phantogram tunes after the jump.

Day 374: HBK Reppin' the Bay - Azure with "Psychedelic" (Music Video)

I've always been a supporter of Bay Area rap music (being raised in Cupertino), and it's been a minute since I've heard of any buzz over there recently until I started getting familiar with the HBK Gang (aka HeartBreaK Gang). It looks like IAMSU! has been holding it down for a while and has been the face of the crew with help from Jay Ant, P-Lo, and others.

I really just wanted to shout out their DJ, Azure, for the main reason I've been doing research on their crew and getting hooked on their music. I'm rooting for these guys to blow up and put Bay Area rap back on everybody's radar. Let's hope they can build a scene.

Check out IAMSU!'s recent track he released featuring 2 Chainz & Sage the Gemini (the newest HBK member) after the jump...
