Music to get you through the week #26

And yeah, that is Amy Schumer and Method Man ‘wilding-out’ together.

You know why? You know why. That’s because we’ve got jams for the week. Deliveroo don’t even deliver jam. We’ve got jams. Plural. With zest. Enjoy.

MONDAY

Olga Bell – Randomness

A charming deviation from her 2014 album, Russian-born American recording artist Olga Bell brings Randomness; a fanciful, mutant pop-trance track reminiscent of early ‘90s dance sound. Her voice, symbiotic with conflicting tempos and melodic tones and shudders, is a pleasant auditory production.

TUESDAY

Trim – RPG

With the grime train rolling with more weight and momentum than ever, Trim and James Blake team up for RPG. With the coolheaded crisp delivery from the respected MC on a pulsing, unpredictable and ‘Gran Turismo car selection screen’ Blake beat, this track is a cocktail of diverse UK talent.

WEDNESDAY

Fifth Harmony – Work From Home feat. Ty Dolla $ign

It seems that all artists want us to ‘Work’ right now. However, U.S. X Factor formed group, Fifth Harmony, are saying we can work from home. With a sleek and super-catchy on trend instrumental from popular producer Ammo and a verse from Ty Dolla $ign, the group bring a upbeat song you can get moving to.

THURSDAY

Future – Low Life feat. The Weeknd

The hip-hop MVP of 2015, Future and his incredible work-rate. Real name Nayvidius Wilburn, Future was everywhere last year, releasing mixtapes, an album and a collaborative project with Drake. It was also seemingly illegal to release an album without a feature from him. He dropped EVOL last month (seemingly after returning from an Arctic expedition) and he and Abel effortlessly performed lead single – Metro Boomin produced Low Life on SNL last week.

FRIDAY

Charlie XCX – Secret (Shh)

As a teaser to her yet-untitled third LP, 23 year-old Charlie XCX dropped Vroom Vroom at the end of February; an experimental ‘wonky pop’ EP. The last track on the record, Secret (Shh) a punk and grimy EDM track with production from ‘waveformer’ SOPHIE. It’s an edgy sound from a bubbling artist.

SATURDAY

DJ Snake – Middle feat. Bipolar Sunshine

With a video looking like a Halloween-romance version of Kick-Ass, now mainstream success securer (following Lean On with MØ) Parisian DJ Snake brings the pitch-shifted pop-tinged bassy single, Middle. A more sombre hit than his last, it’ll still prove a festival filler for sure.

SUNDAY

St. Lucia – Dancing on Glass

South-African born New Yorker, Jean-Philip Grobler, leads St. Lucia’s indie synthpop sound. Dancing on Glass is arguably the best track from the second album, Matter, and showcases big ideas in simple form for a feel good song for Sunday.
