Oyster Kids – Losing My Mind (Submission)

Is it me or does this song sound great to do the Watusi? Right away, you want to jiggle your body to the music. The Los Angeles-based band Oyster Kids made a song about doubting yourself and overthinking everything. I think it is something we’ve gone through, at some point in our lives.

Fun fact: If you didn’t know, the Watusi is a dance that was popular in the 1960s. Its name comes from the former name of the “Tutsi” African people.

Lastly, their debut extended play comes out during the Summer, and a full-length album will follow at the end of the year.


Little Donald & Ludacris – #SayItTwice (Remix) (Submission)

Decatur, Georgia-native rapper Little Donald enlists hometown legend Ludacris on the remix to his #SayItTwice record. The catchy comedic single has been doing well on the charts. I’d like to hear it play at a club in Atlanta, Georgia where people still dance. Do you know any?

The artist has a remix with TI for ‘Better Better’. We’re looking forward to hearing it.


Shy FX – Bad After We featuring Kojey Radical and Ghetts (Submission)

One of my favourite British artists, period, Shy FX is back with a grimy record ‘Bad After We’ featuring fellow wicked lyricists Kojey Radical and Ghetts. It’s a track that will make you want to protect your crew, more than you already do. The record is from Shy FX’s outstanding new album entitled, ‘Raggamuffin’, which features genre-blending fifteen incredibly well-produced records.


Story of Luc – Go On (Submission)


Andrew Carroll – Midnight Blues (Submission)

Since my recent arrival in Houston, I’ve been listening to Jazz pianist James Francies. ‘Midnight Blues’ takes me to the sounds popularised during my childhood on television shows and channels like the (now culutrally unaccepted) Cosby Show or PBS. Listen as the Andrew Carroll musical composition cascades into you another dimension in time.


Tindersticks – Willow featuring Robert Pattnison (Submission)

His voice sounds like you’ve done something wrong. You’re going to get in control; There’s nothing you can do about it. Watch the beautifully-created music video for the haunting reflective ‘Tindersticks’ featuring a cameo by award-winning actor Robert Pattinson. Stuart A. Staples’ words are thought-provoking. Dig a little deeper into yourselves with this one.
