10 Tracks That Slap
Gorillaz (feat. slowthai and Slaves) – Momentary Bliss
The famously faceless band, Gorillaz, links up with England’s slowthai and Slaves for a techno-punk banger. At the core of the song, “Momentary Bliss” is hardcore and fearless, featuring a standout verse from slowthai, and a killer hook from Slaves, it’s kind of hard not to like this song.
CJ Fly – Show You
In a beautifully crafted visual, CJ Fly gives a tour of New York, highlighting places of his past and places of his present. He’s sporadically been releasing small two- or three-pack singles, but it’s been about four years since we’ve gotten a full-length project from the Pro Era member. Hopefully, “Show You” leads to a full body of work being released in 2020.
Little Dragon – Hold On
Little Dragon returns with an infectious, head-bobbing, house track. Their first single since the release of their 2018 EP, “Lover Chanting” is sure to get you moving.
ShooterGang Kony – A Sinner Story
ShooterGang Kony showcases his lyrical mastery with his latest single. His immaculate storytelling is paired with a beautifully shot visual to create an engaging experience that is hard to forget.
Yared Kiflai – HELLBOY
Oakland rapper Yared Kiflai returns with his third single in two months. “HELLBOY” is true to its name, with devilish production from Jean Benz. Kiflai tiptoes around the beat and gets off melodic raps.
ODIE – Slowly
Toronto born and Bay Area raised, ODIE is taking his time with his music. He returns with “Slowly,” his first offering this year. Stacked with beautiful melodies and a gorgeously arranged instrumental, they combine to make a perfect backdrop for ODIE’s meditative singing.
G Perico – One More Day
If you’re missing Nipsey Hussle’s big, bold raps, make sure to check out fellow LA rapper G Perico. On “One More Day,” Perico expresses his hopes for the future and reflects on his past and present.
Sada Baby – Slide
Sada Baby’s latest loosie is as bold as it is fun. He flipped The Gap Band’s “You Dropped A Bomb On Me,” into an intense, fast-paced banger. The song is one of Sada Baby’s best. We love anything Sada Baby.
Phony Ppl – Fkn Around (feat. Megan thee Stallion)
Phony Ppl’s latest single is euphoric and funky. The instrumental radiates like sunshine and with a catchy verse from Megan Thee Stallion, the newest Phony Ppl is a gift to the ears.
Raveena – Headaches
After the success of her excellent, jazzy debut album, “Lucid,” Raveena (or Raveena Aurora) is back with a new single. “Headaches,” is pure and comforting. Raveena’s blissful, layered vocals are gorgeously intertwined with a majestic, twinkling instrumental.
