Golden Vessel – Hesitate

Only found this song a week ago. on repeat. Overwhelmingly beautiful tune. Reminds me of Byron bay in November.

Sonder – Care

Unique sense of melody. Incredibly delicate arrangement, flawless sense of soul.


Disgusting. killed my mind in 2013. And does to this day..

Slowthai – T N Biscuits

Energy. Unfiltered.

JMSN – Fuck You

Living on the margins of society can allow you to be yourself sometimes. I think JMSN somehow found this space for himself as an artist.

Fortunes – Focus

Special stuff. Balance & feel.

Skepta – Lukey World

This will get u sipping from the bottle. Anything you say about it is an understatement.

Majid Jordan – My Imagination (ft dvsn)

Beautiful. Wish I could create a tune this beautiful.

Sam Cook – Change Gonna Come

I always come back this. Im intrigued by the narrative of this era. The weight of the lyrics. This Melody. The power in his delivery. This is more then a song.

OCTAVIAN – Party Here

Mad vibe. Mental

Kamaliza – Zanzibar

More I listen, more it got me. Feels like someone misunderstood who couldn’t be fkd explaining himself. very special tune.”
