in the gray

Captain Planet is one of my favorite producers these days. On his latest single, “In the Gray,” he cooks up a viciously catchy reggae instrumental, but for me it Brit Lauren’s infectious vocals that make the tune.

Monster Rally is Cleveland native Ted Feighan; he produces sample-based tropical pop. Here’s “Orchids,” a track from his last album, Return to Paradise. I think he makes the best music to work to.

Fat Freddy's Drop

I didn’t see Blackbird on many 2013 year end lists and that’s a shame, because this album by New Zealand’s Fat Freddy’s Drop reveals new bits of brilliance with every listen. I’m one of the fanatics that evangelizes for this band. “Mother, Mother” is a sublime bit of electro afro-beat with the dub reggae DNA […]

Awesome slow jam from the oddly named Beerlover, I love the way he teases the vocal bits and groove.

Everyone knows Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing”. It’s a classic that I’ve heard remixed a lot. This time 9 Lives does a really classy and great rework here that I think does the original justice while doing something new and fresh with it. Really good remix here!

Some nasty Italian acid jazz funk for you. “Say It Again” borrows heavily from the gut funk of “Good Good Feeling” by War and lays it on with vocals by none other than CeCe Rogers, psychedelic guitar riffs and live instrumentation that keeps it loose and oh so funky.

London-based dancer and chanteuse, FKA Twigs, has consistently been putting out amazing videos and songs within the past year. Her latest, “Two Weeks,” a teaser for her upcoming album LP1, brings about an even higher production value with an effects-heavy video.

“Everything is Nice,” the lead single from Popcaan’s debut album, Where We Come From, has become something of a ghetto anthem in Kingston, touching on struggles and triumphs of everyday Jamaican life. A working man’s feel-good anthem.

Standout track from Mister Saturday Night’s Brothers and Sisters compilation, General Ludd’s “C” slowly builds to its inevitable tribal conclusion.
