Here we go! 5 Artists with recent and timeless sounds that should be on your radar. I’ve been biking a lot more and these are the gems that are on repeat in the AirPods. Let’s kick this off, shall we?

 

99 NEIGHBORS 

Something Kaytranada minus the lo hi filters. An 8 person squad from Vermont. Who woulda thought? More here.

 

CARSEN

Heater here. Been playing this for some time on the radio. But Carsen has been on the grind since popping on my radar in 2018.

 

HAVELOCK

Something unique here. Video is dope too! Production is equally tight. Hailing out of London, former waiter with a love for ACDC and Guns N’ Roses.

 

Soft Glas

2-5 years from now this brother will be a house hold name. He seems to contribute or add production to just about every buzz record. He makes amazing videos too. More here.  BTW, here’s an old video but a testament to him being timeless.

 

Omar Apollo

He’s back with a brand new heater channeling our inner Bad Bunny. Fire tho!
