Beats & Pieces: Spring 2021

Here’s our latest assortment of gems and jams that have been getting some serious spins in venues such as the work van, my patio, and new workout playlist. With light beginning to appear at the end of the tunnel, and music brethren from around the world beginning to perform again, I think we’ve seen the worst of this (famous last words).

Fingers crossed.

This hasn’t been an easier year most and definitely not us DJ peeps who have seen our industry and the years of momentum we spent building evaporate overnight. But, the times for crying over spilled milk or over. We could be on the verge of the roaring twenties as the months of pent up demand coalesce with a new appreciation for the social experiences everyone realizes we took for granted.

It’s gonna be big. Buckle up.

This first seductive number by Nina Raquel is a vibe and a half and will be a welcome addition to your simmering summer playlists.

Homeboy I work with put me on to Denzel Curry a few months back and I like what I’ve been hearing so far. This one’s making moves through some big placements and that fact that it’s funky as a mutha.

And while we’re here, let’s not sleep on Young Franco who is clearly on a mission to keep the good times going as he carves out a name for himself with some true-to-form uptempo flow.

I make no bones about my affinity for Tchami, he’s one the best things to happen to electronic music in the past decade, and he doesn’t disappoint here as he teams up with Gunna, a funky synth patch and his signature sound. Bow your head.

Cannons take us past the rapid eye movement stage turning our bad dreams into a sweet moody modern dance number squeezed through a new wave filter. Take a trip.
