Okay, Mondays do suck but what makes them suck less is getting 20 hand picked, mind-numbingly rad tracks delivered to you via interwebz courier (that’s me).
Every weekend, Jince scours through hundreds of SoundCloud tracks to find the best new gems by artists that are flying under the radar.
Every track on this playlist has a sonic characteristic that’ll knock you on your ass, but here are a few of my favorites:
DYLN – Better Things
I don’t know what’s more surprising – that DYLN has only 56 soundcloud followers or that she not only writes and sings, but produces too! It must be because she’s a fellow Brooklynite 😉 Though “Better Things” is the only track on her soundcloud page, she gives off the aura of an accomplished pop star. It’s a track that’ll leave you humming the chorus every.fucking.where.you.go. (speaking from experience here) – definitely bright things coming from this rising star
SEV1NE8IGHT (AJ Taylor) – The Man
I’ve been Drake-dancing ever since I found this track – it’s got the traphouse minimalist beat mixed with the braggadocious lyrics. This track is coming out of a new NYC-based crew calling themselves SEV1NE8IGHT, of which AJ Taylor is the masterful emcee on this one. I’m not sure where in NYC these guys are based, but you can be damn certain that they’ll be hearing this track blasting out of my bike speakers in Brooklyn this entire week.
Bad Poetry Club – The Words
These guys seem to have shown up mysteriously this past weekend with this only one track – I’m DEFINITELY not complaining. It’s got a great jam-bandy vibe with solid hip hop and indie influences. Bad Poetry Club‘s sound is a funky mix – imagine a little bit of Kids these Days sprinkled w/a little bit of Brasstracks-esque instrumentation. Though this is the only track they’ve got out, we’re anxiously waiting for the next one.
Moglii – Breath (feat. Island Fox)
Keep an eye on Moglii as he is about to drop his solo debut EP “Naboo” a bit later in 2017 via Majestic Casual Records. We know him since his collaborations with Novaa but lately, this is with UK singer-songwriter Island Fox that he shines in the track “Breath”. The German producer and jazz pianist manages to create a beautiful soundscape, loaded with twisted synths and vocal chops.
Angus Dawson – All The Things I Never Said
First of all, round of applause for the name “Angus” – It will be very hard to forget that one. Second, this Aussie brings such a dreamy, incredibly forlorn vibe to this track – it captured my attention immediately on the first listen. Pay attention to the sax solo that pops up towards the end. Goddamn, how sexy is that?
priz – Living Proof
You’re going to have a hard time trying not to tap your feet to this melodic track. priz does a great job of leading the melody w/his vocals and still leaves space for the instruments to shine. This self-professed “singa” from “Lundun” has got us itching to hear more bangers.
