ft. mbe

It’s funny how much music interests can change for any given person over the span of a lifetime.

I remember when I was heavy into rap and hip hop years back, when I heard instrumentals they just sounded like half songs, like they were missing something. For some reason I always thought a song needed lyrics. I still feel that way about certain tracks sometimes.
Today, I find that more than half of my music library consists of said “half songs” and ironically, I find they are fuller and carry more meaning than most of the music I hear when I am out and about or from friends. (sorry guys) 

Humbly on a quest to keep our ears satisfied, artist mbe can do both. Here are two of his more recent tracks that I am equally obsessed with:


BUT! my favourite mbe track for the past few months has been ‘praying for you‘ which is available to you for free by clicking here. Take a listen below, it’s dope af.

ft: N i G H T S

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-New.

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.

 

ft. ARDENCY

ARDENCY.jpg

‘Ardent’–adjective;
1. having, expressive of, or characterized by intense feeling; passionate; fervent:an ardent vow; ardent love. 2. vehement; fierce. 3. burning, fiery, or hot: the ardent core of a star“.

Appropriate, I think.
Yes, it is cheesy to define words and artist names, but words are all we have… wouldn’t you agree?
Words mean a lot to me (or at least I think they do).But sometimes, words fall short. Ever feel something you literally couldn’t describe?
Some people have the incredible capability of conveying their emotions via sound and other electromagnetic waves~

Apply the definition of Ardency to their most recent EP ‘For You, Only‘, and I would gather that these guys feel some type of way about the music they put out.

Personally I have been a fan of Ardency since I first heard their unforgettable 2 track EP: ‘Gradience’. Two plus years later, they are crossing over genres and creating a niche for themselves betwixt edm goers and indie fans alike. Now, with an even more defined sound that spans a multitude of decades, one would find it nearly impossible to try and fit them in any kind of box.

And that’s that shit we do like.
Thanks for reading, enjoy.

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~

It’s still hot as **** everywhere in California, but school’s are back in sesh and these summer nights are starting to need a bonfire and an IPA in the late hours.

But- that doesn’t mean the party has to stop.
Not with this week’s playlist at least…

We’re feeling really good right about now, so all of these tracks have been inspired to do the same for you and those you love.So enjoy sounds by the likes of Hex Cougar, dabow, Cavalier, What So Not, and Buku.
