Ace Tee – Bist du down ?

I have no idea how, but Ace Tee & this overly-infectious track (with 90’s inspired visuals) slipped through my internet. Kwam.e‚s warm and full-bodied beat completely passed me by. I’m lowkey gutted that this has been around for approximately 8 months without me hearing/seeing. Shame on me. Shouts to the stylist. Bump & enjoy!

VIDEO: Chuuwee – Desire

Shouts to Chuuwee always with the dope production/selection & thought-provoking lyrics. The Cali-based MC can come with the street-savvy bars or kick book knowledge, often flipping between both styles with ease. Desire lays bare the creative personal wants & wishes making „Desire“ an intriguingly personal track. Check the visuals (direction from Alan Michael & Chuuwee)…

Zara McFarlane – All Africa

Tokoyo – Singles

Tokoyo manuvers the listener through 7-tracks of chill terrain changing tempos & moods without ever switching the vibe. A…

devonwho – Lyon EP

More power to devonwho! Everything this producer touches turns to electro-funk gold. The long-awaited Lyon EP dropped a few months ago and I foolishly neglected to post it up here…uff. Better late than never and all that. Click the small triangle and be prepared to take on Klipmode number one’s latest audio manifestation!    Lyon – EP…

Raiza Biza – Day & Night EP

6-track name your price release from New Zealand’s Raiza Biza. Hot on the heels of April’s ‚The Imperfectionist‘ release, the ‚Day & Night EP is super-chill, well-produced and perfectly soulful. The project features a number of vocal appearances which compliment the feels that this quality EP seeps. Stream & enjoy the goodness! <a href="http://raizabiza.bandcamp zithromax…
