June compilation 2016 this [2016-06-26]

Still into alternative R&B. Ariana, that old tale of the beauty and the rapper. SZA for the voice. Anna Wise for the video and the James Blake-sound (did he write the music?). Puro instinct for a Madonne cover, nice! Pete Josef for bringing some quality nujazz back, rare these days. BoyBoy, electro-pop. Cassius, even more electro-pop, compulsively listenable with mass appeal. If only Jazztronik would stop the artsy experiments and show what he really's capable of. Danny Brown's flow is impressive, or just hyperactive? Love the Greg Beato sound - hard and exact beats, dark drums, a real club song, an instant classic.

April compilation 2016 this [2016-05-28]

The Ellie Goulding cover is so good. I struggle a bit with 2 bears but this remix is fantastic, in a calm laidback way. The remix of Alain CHamfort sounds very french, silky and rich. The new album by James Blake is highly recommended.
