Has everyone adjusted back to office life after a wonderfully slow Easter/Passover holiday last week, or after those March Madness pools, I should say? Hopefully you had the luck of that 12-year-0ld ESPN-pool winner. Either way, it’s Friday. Which means one thing: Freeloading time.
For all those out there down for some dusty drum Hip-Hop samples atop Electronic pulses, then Dfalt‘s your go-to. Try out his EP in full for some bass-heavy beats and Industrial scratches.
Speaking of Hip-Hop, RJD2‘s back on the scene with his latest, this time calling on rapper STS to bring you a lyrically indisputable masterpiece, backed by Soulful horn blasts. And Lyrics Born‘s similarly Soulful tune with Galactic is the cherry on top of this Groovy, Jazzy, laid-back style.
Now this music video you’re gonna catch from Say Lou Lou is one for the books. The 8-minute-plus video (AKA “short film”) takes you to the deep, dark jungle depths to urbanscapes all the way to an isolated subdesert, all while detailing a dreamlike drama. Gotta see it in full.
