Right then. Right when you’ve exhausted the 29th trap instrumental, or the 9th #future song being reposted in your Soundcloud feed (all of which sound the same). Right when you’ve listened to the same build/drop again and again in every poor rendition of already established artist ripoffs you can tolerate, that’s when it happens…
That new song, that new artist.
That new found soundbyte that is just 4 minutes full of whatever je ne sais quoi it is about it that makes you go, 🙌🏽 🙌🏽.
That’s what happened to me about a week ago when I stumbled across the silky smooth sounds of ‘N i G H T S‘.
Think early Craig David; suave/pop vocals…meets bounce, plus bass. And a little something extra I can’t quite put my finger on…so I just downloaded their songs (for free) instead 🙃.
Here are my top tracks from the up and coming duo:
Thanks for reading, stay gold.
Holy shit you guys…it’s almost over.
Typically I don’t really remember ‘years‘ for what happened in them or whatever…I can hardly remember what I ate 48 hours ago (probably something with potatoes though).
2016 was an emotional shit storm for yours truly.
A year filled with a rise in my anxiety on a daily basis, and me questioning everyone and everything coming and going from my social circle to the people I saw on the streets.
I’m usually distracted by the changes and “fresh starts” that a New Year tantalizes us with, but this December I just feel happy to be going into the next 365 days with all my limbs and wits about me…
Something I have always been fairly decent or been consistent with is maintaining a playlist of sorts, and around one year ago today I started keeping a log of the songs I have deemed “Best of 2016” entitled, ‘3016’.
So here it is; a cool playlist for your hopeful NYE get together, or any ready-to-get-lit-fest you may have going on this weekend.
These are all songs that either stood out amongst the rest or have been on heavy repeat, getting me through the life-sized obstacle course that was the past year of my life.
From the bottom of my heart to yours, enjoy.
If music can’t save us what can?
Okay, maybe that is a little dramatic–but what can I say, I am a Nasty, nasty Woman.
You know what I think we all miss? #TRVP. That’s right. Good Old-Fashioned trap music.
If you don’t quite know what Trap is, it’s basically the electronic version of popular (or throwback) rap songs. Plus it’s so much fun to dance to.
Andrew Luce is probably one of the most underrated and upcoming musicians in Electronic right now. Decide for yourself:
That remix of Kid Cudi is available for free by clicking here.
I’d like to stop there but I won’t. If that tickled your fancy, this track is one of my current faves, ft. the unique sound of Ms. Chelsea Cutler.
This week has been an introspective one to say the least…it is really incredible how everyday seems to be “the same” at times, but then you remember to look over your shoulder, and holy **** ToTo we’re not in Kansas anymore!
Music is the best at that, constantly changing and striving for the unthinkable.
Those are the artists I am currently focused on, because I don’t know if you were all aware, but the songs we are currently listening to are becoming the soundtracks of our lives…let’s make sure it’s a good playlist huh?
Have a safe & lovely weekend guys, enjoy some lighthearted, and heavy tunes this long weekend.
I’m pretty sure this image of Eazy-E wasn’t taken by smith. –listen below 🔥– however, his track is bass-heavy and also free to download via TONEDEN<3 right here, so we’re gonna honor this picture of one of the baddest motherfuckers to grace this beautiful planet earth. Peace~
Every time we try to leave…it pulls us back in.

Because we’re all suckers for reverting back to that one (or two hundred) fav tracks from yesteryear
People might start to question why we support MCF so much…mostly because we miss good rappers with real presence and wisdom to spare. And everything sounds better over a Norty beat ❤
