“Bakardi Slang” by Kardinal Offishall
I’m going to Toronto for the first time in my life. Fortunately Kardinal will help me learn the local lingo.
“Homie” ft. Cadence Weapon - Shad K + Skratch Bastid
“Homie” is a bangin tribute to travel and tripping back home by fellow Canadian road warriors Shad, Skratch Bastid, and Cadence Weapon. This song, along with the completed version of the demo release, “Peace”, will be part of a Shad + Skratch Bastid collaborative EP entitled The Spring Up to be released online before month’s end; a breezy, soulful collection completed shortly after the pair wrapped up work on Shad’s upcoming full-length, Flying Colours. In addition to the Cadence Weapon guest spot, the EP will feature a production assist from Bastid’s most recent touring partner, DJ Jazzy Jeff.”
Well, this is good news.
This is starting to be more mainstream than almost mainstream lately. I blame the fact that I’ve been posting a lot fewer songs than I should be. Going to go back to more than one a week. But for now: I’m starting to suspect this is one of the more perfectly crafted pop songs around. Seems unremarkable, but just grows.
“Crazy in Love” (Kid Koala version) by Emeli Sandé and the Bryan Ferry Orchestra
This is jam-bait for me. My favourite Beyoncé song covered by Emeli Sandé, mixed by Kid Koala, AND it kind of sounds like the Cantina Band from Star Wars? Yeah, this is my jam.
