March compilation 2016 this [2016-04-17]

I would have liked Hawthorne continue the more modern direction on the previous album - this one is classic Hawthorne in a retro style. Some more than decent hiphop from Paak, Lamar and more. The super duo with Big Sean and Jhené Aiko as TWENTY88 is the main news here. Love the EP, love even more the 15 minute long video clip to go with that! Also, quite into the style of Tinashe at the moment or is that also a video thing?

Febuary compilation 2016 this [2016-02-28]

Waiting for the new releases of 2016. Moderat's new album out soon - big fan here, so quite biased and already onboard. The video is amazing with a minimal game vibe. So far, one of the best albums, Junior boys is pretty much essential for fans of electronica. I keep returning to Duke Dumont's video - he has some of the best videos, all artists considered. Submotion orchestra's album is also worth looking into - I like it but don't know what kind of situation I could listen to it. Too few lounge moments.

January compilation 2016 this [2016-01-31]

You have to give it a few spins, to get into the Katy B track - nothing special is going on, the simple bassline is there without any changes all through, no catchy samples. Refreshing.
Lido's EP The Passion project, well worth checking out.
Erykah's Trill friends is a strange take, repeating the same lyrics "Homeboys, and some of them we wish we never knew at all" over in a dull yet hypnotic style.
Rihanna - did she use to sing this good before?
