Song of the summer (‘15) right here, love the homage to MJ. Almost sounds like ’83 Quincy Jones was in the studio. (bren)
♩ The Weeknd – Can’t Feel My Face [from Beauty Behind The Madness]
I am still continually listening to Disclosure’s debut album Settle, but the brothers from across the pond didn’t fall into the sophomore slump with Caracal at all. This record is a more straightforward pop/dance record compared to the soulful house music we all came to know and love but I love it. Miguel is one of the better artists working in R&B today and he lends his voice to this moody dance track. With big collaborators like Sam Smith, Lorde, and The Weeknd,this track might get overlooked but it might be my personal fave from the album.
Fresh off his new Age of Transparency album, the follow up to his spectacular 2013 album Anxiety. “Panic Room” is an intense soul song with the same abstract production that we have come to know from Arthur Ashin. The Brooklyn producer also shares an incredibly awkward yet hilarious video for “Panic Room”.
My favorite song right now…with my favorite female vocalist and a rad producer. Also check out the Chet Faker cover of “No Diggity” if you haven’t already
