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!

FERNANDO FALCAO 

I’ve noticed I spent way too much time focusing on new artists and wanted to dig in the crates a bit. I came across this album last week and specifically this song which just hits all the vibes with the strings and children’s choir. Album artwork is super fresh too! Fernando is still alive and lives in homeland of Brazil. He lived in exile in Paris as a participant in activism against Brazil.

 

 

JAKOB OGAWA

22-year-old Norwegian Jakob Ogawa hits the spots with this single. Summer vibe for a Fall day is how I would describe this tone.

 

 

SUPER ELCADOS 

This band hails from Nigeria and it spot on in it’s connection to 70’s JB sounds. Sadly the band only recorded 3 albums. Thanks for Mr. Bongo you can grab their sounds.

 

 

SAN SIMON

It was this cover of Stevie Wonder’s Golden Lady that first caught my attention. I thought this was an old recording only to find out it’s an active band out of New York formed in 2014 and blends soul with afro rican rhythms. More info here!

 

 

MAMA’S GUN

Takes guts to name your band off a Badu record but these gents from London nail some gritty soul. They have charted in Japan with a remix from Mitsu The Beats.

New sounds from Waajeed, Jakob Ogawa, Anna Wise with Denzel Curry, 30/70 out of Melbourne, Dayme Arocena (Cuba), Emily King x Machinedrum Terrace Martin and Jessie Reyez . World sounds from Colombia, Nigeria, Portugal and beyond plus tons of amazing edits.  Hope you dig this weekend’s sets. Also – RIP Ginger Baker!

OMAR APOLLO 

Omar’s been on my radar. He’s a funny and super tall dude. I figure since he just dropped his new video for Erase, I’d show him some well deserved love. As of 40 minutes ago this new video for Kickback just premiered. And in the usual Omar Apollo humor we see him having a good time with a cheeky ending. Omar can do no wrong with his song delivery and fun time video capture.

 

Blu DeTiger

Every week I get a new batch of music and search hardcore for new music. Not sure how I came across this one from Blu DeTiger but I’m a huge fan of what happens around the 2 minute mark of this song, the horn hits and the chill vibe of this gem. Shout outs to this 20 year old creative out of NYC!

 

HOMEBOY SANDMAN

Homeboy Sandman is no over night success. Ive been long excited about the work of Homebody Sandman. I’ve seen him several times at SXSW live and am always blown away. I’m also a fan of his choice of beats to rhyme over. Far Out is my current fave from this NYC emcee. Dusty is out now. Grab it.

 

BERHANA

Again, not sure how I came across Berhana but Pomo on the beat makes this feel so familiar. Based out of ATL, Berhana collaborates with South Korea R&B vocalist Crush on this beautiful cut.

 

NOAH SLEE

This 4 on the floor gets me moving every time. And this video is super mesmerizing. Listen to more of his work here.
