Blues, Hip-Hop, Music, Rap

Our Sunday round-up of the songs we’ve had on repeat during the week. We aim to give you a heads up on some new releases as well as give you a new weekly spot to discover some tunes, old and new, that you might not have come across- we’ll do the legwork for you

This week we’ve got a mixture of old school hip-hop heavyweights, some up and coming rappers, bossa nova bosses, and a bit of blues to top it off. Have a listen below:

Boogie – Oh My

Boogie is a 25 year-old up and coming rapper from Long Beach, CA. His laid back, nasally style has given rise to comparisons to Chance the Rapper, but Boogie is definitely not a cheap imitation. Listen to the certified banger, “Oh My”, below:

iLoveMakkonen – Whip It (Remix Ft. Migos & Rich The Kid)

Makkonen recently dropped the Drink More Water 5 mixtape which features some stellar remixes as well as some new material. The Whip It remix features Migos & Rich The Kid, and this time around it’s even more infectious.

Astrud Gilberto – The Girl From Ipanema

Check out this particular rendition of the classic Brazilian Bossa Nova song, The Girl From Ipanema. This track makes for perfect easy listening for the coming summer months.

Stack Waddy – With One Leap Dan Was By Her Side

British Blues rock straight outta Manchester, Stack Waddy released some awesome joints in the 60’s and 70’s, but remain relatively underrated.

Leon Bridges – Coming Home

Gospel, Soul and Blues young gun Leon Bridges is slowly turning into a bit of a sensation. This transformation makes perfect sense when you hear his amazing voice – a voice that manages to channel the emotion of 60’s R&B and Soul, whilst still remaining firmly rooted in our contemporary moment. Have a listen to the stellar “Coming Home”, below:

Big Daddy Kane – Smooth Operator

Everyone knows that there ain’t no half steppin around Big Daddy Kane. The Juice Crew graduate and all around hip-hop and MC legend had it all – style, bravado, technique, flow, lyricism and panache!
