Some older, some newer...but all relative, relevant and groovy. I can envision myself riding in my car, windows down, stereo blasting on the way to a kickback playing these songs. Be sure to add this feel good, head bobbin' music to your Spring/Summer playlist.
D. R. A. M. - Signals [Throw It Around]
Does.Real.Ass.Music, or D. R. A. M. for short. He’s become well known for liking to cha-cha, but does so much more than that! The rapper/singer/producer from Hampton, Virginia released visuals for his song “Signals” about three weeks ago. The song is off his 2015 EP Gahdamn!, which also features SZA and Donnie Trumpet. Check it out.
Saba Pivot - Butter
This video came out over a year ago, but I’m just getting hip to the Chicago artist Saba so he will certainly be in rotation this summer season. “Sound to me is music,” he said. “I’m one of those music nerds who thinks that there is something beautiful in all music, and I feel like there is music in all sound. Sound is really vibration, and to me good vibration is the most important thing in the universe.” A lot of good vibrations come from his song “Butter” off the 2014 mixtape, ComfortZone. Peep below.
Domo Genesis feat. Anderson .Paak - DAPPER
Based on last week’s post, we all know that I thoroughly enjoy Anderson .Paak’s soulful vocals. Combine that with Domo Genesis’ lyrics and we have a hit! You may be familiar with Domo Genesis from his involvement in the hip hop collective Odd-Future and sub-group MellowHigh. Together he and Anderson .Paak developed an upbeat, fun, high-spirited song called “DAPPER” off of the 2016 debut album, Genesis. The video depicts the song perfectly.
I enjoy browsing my older brother's SoundCloud He always has a random ass array of cool music. Here's an additional track I enjoy that gives me a smooth, summer vibe.
