Reflex Top 10 Vol. 2 for Jay-Z's "Life and Times"
I'm a tad all over the place this week musically. This week features a couple older records that I felt needed to be readdressed along with some awesome new tunes, enjoy!
1) Kid Cudi "Girls"
Cudi stopped by last week to see me and premiere his latest single "Girls". His new album "IndiCud" drops April 23rd and will not be released through GOOD Music. Not a first listen record for me but I appreciate it the more I listen to it.
2) Grandtheft X Trinidad James X DJ Snake "All Bird Everything"
A mash up of Trinidads anthem over a new Mad Decent tune catching on by DJ Snake entitled "Bird Machine". Grantheft manages to make hearing the "Pop The Molly" line still tolerable.
3) Kavinsky "Nightcall" (Breakbot Remix)
Breakbot manages to funk out the Kavinsky tune and reminds me why I like old Disco/Funk music so much.
4) Rhye "Open" (Jeff Samuel Faded Mix)
Like everyone else I'm in love with this Rhye "Open" record. Jeff Samuel uses the great vocal to tell everyone "I know your faded", possibly turning a love song into a Las Vegas poolside groove to inform your friends how much they have been drinking.
5) Hudson Mohawke "Pleasure"
Hudson Mohawke covers Janet Jackson's "Pleasure Principal" ... it's that simple.
6) Classixx "Holding On"
I have been a fan of Classixx for a few years now, From amazing remixes of Phoenix and Mayer Hawthorne to original grooves like this, really dig them.
7) Drake "Started From The Bottom" (Funkystepz Shapeshift Remix"
An uptempo remix to Drakes' single, perfect for the pool parties this summer.
8) Phoenix "Entertainment"
YESSS! Who's excited for the new Phoenix album coming out later this month? I am!
9) Big Sean feat. Common "Switch Up"
Sean delivers a well versed club heater and puts the classic voice of my big bro Common on an uncommon Common beat with an uncommon Common flow, very nice tune. 10) Casey Veggies "Love = Hate, Ulterior Motives" An older Casey record from earlier this year that I wanted to feature and say he has become one of my favorite new hip hop MCs to hit the scene.
