Its the second round of DJ Breon's young Dooky mix - are you prepared? Check out the playlist below and then read her descriptions of a few select tunes. For this week’s complimentary artwork, she chose to feature Kim ByungKwan from Seoul, Korea. He recreates pop icons in a beautifully messy and sightly unrecognizable way by distorting some of the stars most recognizable features. In a small bio in his Behance account has said that he is trying to destroy comfort that is formed by visual habits with his work. Amen.
TOKiMONSTA ft. Anderson Paak: Realla- If it was possible for D’Angelo and Frank Ocean have a son, 27 year old Anderson Paak would be him. Paak takes his sweet time on this song with his simple but sexy-smooth lyrics. Let’s not forget how TOKiMONSTA’s production amplifies the emotion that Anderson has poured out on the track. She kills it with the horns which wrap’s up the last minute of the song. For Realla Baby, I wouldn’t be surprised if this became your new favorite jam.
Hanah: Out of Touch- “Out of Touch” is Hanah Taxman’s first single. The eerie pull of the vocals instantly brings you into the euphoric loop of the gritty production. The indie-soul singer is set apart from the rest by delivering this soulful lullaby while keeping you lucid with the unsuspecting build of the production.
Chet Faker ft. Goldlink: On You- Songs From Scratch Series brings this unlikely dynamic duo together. Chet sets a high bar on this track as he gets straight to the point on the hook and Goldlink matches the ante with an effortless verse. The song is about spending it all on that special girl. Goldlink says that “My verse is from his (Chet’s) point of view.” I highly suggest you check out the making of the song on the Songs From Scratch website. (www.songsfromscrat.ch)
Cousin Stizz: Shoutout- Shoutout to Cousin Stizz for this song. Cousin’s cadence snaps perfectly into this beat, allowing you to easily follow his trap life style. His tough lyrics balance the sweetness of the production, creating a unique end product.
