Summary: Good rap. Soulful hook

About Artist: Young One Era is a local Tucson artist! I don’t know anything about Versailles the Truth but I looked her up on soundcloud and she is actually more of a rapper than a hook singer.

About Song: I don’t know much about this song except that it came out in late 2014. Also that it was produced by J. Dominguez

Favorite Part: The production on this song is awesome. I love the video game sounds (Mario, the Donkey Kong drop at 1:55 etc). The rap is solid, and hook is the best part. So beautiful so soulful.

DOWNLOAD MP3 DojaCat-SoHighYMNORemix.mp3
Summary: Blunts Up!
About Artist: Doja Cat is an LA artist who recently came out with her first EP title Purrr! Which is a suuuuper chill kind of smoke out album. This track is an official remix by New York based French producer YMNO. 
About Song: I don’t know how I came across this song on Sound Cloud but it caught me with the intro and then it just kind of rolled. Though I don’t smoke anymore it did bring me back to those days in a good way : ) This track is a little more upbeat than the original which is even more chill.
Favorite Part: I like that the track is both laid back but also has sharp little rythem. And I do like the sound of her voice singing on the chorus.

DOWNLOAD MP3 Xiomara-ElectricRelaxationftAmerigoGazaway.mp3
Summary:  Smooth and Jazzy
About Artist: Xiomara is Berkeley singer sonwriter who has yet to catch her break but I really like what she does. Amerigo Gazaway is one of my favorite producers right now. He specializes in remake, mashups, redits, reworks, he is one of my all time favorite remix artists.
About Song: This song is a cover of a Tribe Called Quest’s “Electric Relaxtion”, with some other lyrics from Tribe’s “Find A Way”, and a little musical bit from No Diggity (which I guess was originally Bill Withers).
Favorite Part: This song is almost a little tooo laid back for my tastes but like how smooth she is on it, and it’s a creative reimagination of the two original Tribe Calle Quest songs.
Also, not gonna lie, I like the don’t mess with bill part at the end ;)

About Song: This song is off of Pharrell’s recently released album G I R L. The album was only 10 tracks and was a bit of a let down but how could it not be with such high expectations. Happy was of course the lead single from the album but along with that and this Alicia Keys track  track I really liked the outro ‘It Girl’ .

Favorite Part:
Though it’s a little repetitive I really like the hook especially when Alicia Keys sings it. It’s easy listening and it makes me feel good.

Summary: Happy New Year! Here’s to 2014 A Year of Love!
About Artist: Beyonce just keeps getting better. How does she do it? I have no idea.
About Song: This song is off of Beyonce ‘surprise’ album that she just dropped. Already this songs is dominating the radio. Jay-Z pretty much sucks on this song but the hook and the baseline are just sooo good.

Favorite Part:
I like the chorus, just Beyonce’s growly voice and the super sick base line on this track.

Reminds me of the raw fcking power of just being in love.
