Mike’s Monday Music Playlist 7/9/15
MIKE CURATES THE PICK OF THE MUSICAL CROP TO SOUNDTRACK YOUR MONDAY MORNING.
Flume makes it on to yet another XWHY playlist and with good reason. ‘Holdin on’ a collaboration with none other than Freddie Gibbs, is a ghostly cross between electro and hip hop that appears on the deluxe edition of his debut self titled album.
London born and American raised, Sudanese musician Sinkane has a lot of different musical references to draw on. He gets things feeling a little sensual early on with his track ‘Hold Tight’ from the album ‘Mean Love’ which could be the piece of work that sees him slowly drift in the conscious of music hipsters.
XO Man’s ‘Pull it to the side’ is about just what you think it would be about. Standing at 6ft10in person, XO Man is hard to ignore at the best of times so with this in your face sexual rap, he’s certainly not going against type. At a time were rapper stateside are all beginning to sound like identikit versions of Drake, it’s nice to see a UK MC delivering things in his own unique style.
