ON DECK by Le Youth w/ THUMP


Le Youth (Wes James) takes us back to our fave 90s R&B jams in the perfect smooth slick way he does with all his mixes. throwback hit after throwback hit. it don’t stop in this mix for THUMP.

super excited to hear more from Le Youth this year. after falling in love with “COOL” back in 2013, I knew this guy knew what was up, and anticipated his lead in the nu disco scene. This year, he’s been dropping more deep house vibe jams, which is just what the dance scene ordered.

now excuse me as i continue to “sit up in my room, thinkin’ bout you” with Brandy, Le Youth, Mario, and all the homies…..

love. by Cudderland (Kid Cudi)

I am happy to be aliiiive….

don’t be so down, c’mon young homie

you’ll be okay, you”l find real love

all of the stories, the hero gets lonely

now is the time to show what you’re made of.

[a new cute one from Cudi. Notes from the Kid: “Something I made during the SF sessions. produced by me, keys by Dot. Sample is from one of my favorite Ratatat jams “Sunblocks”.”

Wonder if Coach will do anything with this one or do anything around the new album! (Cudi was one of Coach’s “Dreamers” for their #CoachBackstage campaign.)]

Drake drops new mixtape “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late”

[haven’t been able to post about Drake’s surprise mixtape drop on Friday, February 13th, 2015, until now. It was a lovely surprise I received upon landing in freezing NYC.]

Needless to say, I dig this new album because I rarely dislike anything from the man….and I am still listening to it; digesting all of it before I can say my full opinion. There is a lot of speculation as to why he released it so abruptly like this, especially with all the rumors around the beef between some heavy rappers with Cash Money Records. Pitchfork lays it all out here, along with some great lines alluding to this rumor from the album. Looking forward to seeing the story further unfold….in the meantime, I will continue to have this mixtape on repeat.

“Young but I’m makin’ millions to work the night shift”

Shout out to Henry Krinkle’s “Stay”, which is used in to-be-hit-single “Preach”, after also being used in Nicki Minaj’s “Buy a Heart” in her latest The Pink Print. Hopefully Cash Money paid Henry properly at least…..
