Dusty crate boom bap with a bit of vocal sampling to help tell the story.
Shuhandz & High Flown “Apex”
If you’re a fan of Odesza, you’ll probably get into this. “Apex” is the lead single from the duos forthcoming release dropping September 20th.
Sweeps “Ain’t No”
Soulful and funky. Digging the way Sweeps used the vocal sample on this one.

Torin Bell “Txt Me”
Downtempo producer Torin Bell sends along “Txt Me”. The track features some nice strings and might just put a smile on your face.
Bels Lontano “Handle”
More of that Flying Lotus and Prefuse 73 vibe on this one. It starts a bit slow but at about 1:05 kicks in.
Tomas Novoa “Vuelta al Sol”
This one is a bit more EDM heavy than what we normally share but it stuck in my head. Really reminds of Radiohead and Bonobo. Chill. Let us know what you think.
