These are all songs off my ‘Smash Hits’ playlist. If you’re coming back to my place and we’re not playing video games… I mean, what is anyone trying to get after going back to anyone’s house after the club? Put this on and let the magic happen.
Elements of Music ft. Anderson.Paak – Get Along
Been a fan of Anderson .Paak since his start – his verses are so smooth and EOM’s production work perfectly complements them in this tune (RIP).
Cold Callers – Summer Lovin’
Super slick jazzy tune about the end of a summer fling. Keys and horns on point in this one.
The Alchemist – Terry
Love this beat – was originally used in Action Bronson’s “Terry” from his 2015 album Mr. Wonderful. Was stoked when the instrumental was released last year.
Castelluzzo – Night Time Blues
Paul Castelluzzo is an incredible jazz guitarist. His complex guitar lines laid over this vibey beat are perfect for chilling after a night out.
Joji – Will He (Medasin Remix)
Such a sweet remix of an already great song about an ex finding happiness with someone new. Relatable yet chill.
NxWorries & Anderson .Paak – Suede
“Suede” was the first single out by NxWorries (collab between producer Knxwledge and Anderson .Paak). If you listen close you might even catch the Gil Scott Heron sample in there.
Miguel, J. Cole, Salaam Remi – Come Through and Chill
The original SoundCloud release of this tune in 2016 was cool, but didn’t get have the verse from J. Cole. He brought it to the next level with his verse and guitar loop.
Moods & High Hoops – Comfortable
New release from Moods I’ve been digging lately – he’s recently transitioned his music composition approach from his usual beat production to creating complete/holistic songs and I’m into it.
Tash Sultana – Big Smoke
Can’t get enough of Tash Sultana’s guitar / looping in this track. Love her story too.
Gabriel Garzon-Montano – Golden Wings
This tune has been in heavy rotation since I first discovered it. Love the organic percussive elements and his layered vocal harmonies.
