Electronic, RnB | Snakehips – After I Met U

Posted by on July 31, 2014

As I write this, I’ve only listened one time to this brilliant new track from UK heartthrobs, Snakehips, and my fingertips are tingling with excitement. I even just caught myself casually grinning. Preface: summer vibes to the max (because rainbow pastel is the new black, right?). “After I Met U” radiates the Snakehips’ signature style of combining sultry R&B vocals and feelings with an upbeat and addicting retro electronic backing. A style we’ve seen most recently in their kaleidoscopic single “Days With You” featuring songstress Sinead Harnett. This track, which was pulled from Snakehips’s live sets in response to the high demand from fans, showcases Cheri Dennis in a much more exhilarating manner than the original. And to top off what was already another casually perfect song from the cat-loving producing duo, the switch up and throwback at the 2:15 mark will knock you out of your chair. And suddenly I’m feeling compelled to whip out some of ol’ Jenny’s moves… 


Chill, Electronic | Sinead Harnett (Feat Snakehips) – No Other Way

Posted by on May 29, 2014

The stunning British songstress Sinead Harnett, who you might recognize from her collabs with Ryan Hemsworth & Disclosure, recently paired up with my *all-time* fav producing duo Snakehips to bring us this electro-soul feel-good jam “No Other Way.” You’ll recognize those spacey sounds that are so quintessentially Snakehips, but it’s Sinead’s vocals that really steal the spotlight here, enveloping you like a gentle breeze on a warm summer day. If you’re a fan of Banks, you’re going to love this. And on a side note, shoutout to Snakehips for their efforts in bringing soul and R&B music back to life, what a breath of fresh air it is to hear something with some real feelings.


Chill, Electronic | The Weeknd – Wanderlust (Snakehips Remix)

Posted by on March 1, 2014


I have literally been obsessed with this remix for the past 24 hours. Literally. And I don’t mean the figurative type of literal that sorority girls use (e.g. – “Oh my gosh, I am literally dying right now.”) – I mean that I have been bumping this track non-stop for the past day, praying it doesn’t get old too quickly.

Throwing down a funked-out version of The Weeknd’s “Wanderlust,” the UK-based homies Snakehips will have you on your feet as soon as the vocals fade in, making it a prime addition to your party playlist. By far my principle nominee for the track of the week, turn this one up loud. Literally.

All the music that I listened to throughout the last 12 months enough to make me sick but somehow didn’t. The fields of music brought a bountiful yield in 2013 which allowed listeners like me to tune into more genres and artists than I could ever imagine. In order to cover all my necessary bases, I’ve drafted quite a comprehensive list (or two) missing prety much only anything Jennifer Lawrence related although if all the things she said this year were songs then they would 100% have made it on my list as well.

So, let the countdown, BEGIN!


Playlists | Warm Air Vol. 2

 Well folks, it’s been real. Tomorrow, Sept 22, marks the official end of summer 2013. In honor of the change in season, I present to you the second installment of my very own Warm Air mixtapes. A mix designed to ease the transition of swimsuits to sweaters and piña coladas to pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha lattes. A mix to warm you up in the cool autumn breeze, to relive the sweet memories of the past few months, and keep your spirits up and motivated as you face challenges in school, work, and everyday life. So close your eyes, and let this mix take you back to that moment on the beach where you dug a hole in the sand with your toes as you watched the sun set, or when you indulged in the most amazing 4th of July BBQ of your life, or drove around recklessly with the top down and the radio up, or the night you watched an epic fireworks spectacle with your boo thang wrapped up tight in your arms.

Remember, just because the summer is over doesn’t mean the fun is. Oh no, 2013 can and will go out with a bang. With 3 months left to go, it’s time the real fun begins.

I’d also like to dedicated this mix to one of my most beautiful friends as she turns 21 today. Hope you enjoy this mixtape as you take your first legal swigs of alcohol today, take an extra big one for me <3

Hip-Hop, RnB | GoldLink – On&On (prod. Kaytranada)

Posted by on August 31, 2013

goldlink on and on

I could say a lot about GoldLink: his versatility, his originality, his personality, and most of all his music, or you could just listen to “On&On” and find out for yourself. This record differs quite a bit from his previous song “Electronic Relaxation“, however, the R&B vibe makes it instantly memorable.

Enjoy, and be sure to follow GoldLink on Souncloud to keep up with all of the new music.

Electronic | Banks – Warm Water (Snakehips Remix)

Posted by on July 10, 2013


It’s safe to say enough time has passed since the last remix of a Banks song occurred that we can pass on the torch to another. Honestly, Djemba Djemba made it virtually impossible for anyone to even try and level up in the wake of his “Fall Over” remix. But there seems the musical gods has chosen Snakehips as the fateful predecessor.

Snakehips did what needed to be done and took this remix in a completely different direction than the above. It’s also more turned down than their latest release, “Make It.” But this remix stays true to the beauty and intimacy of the original, yet sprinkles some of that vinyl scratch and groovy beats that are so quintessentially Snakehips right on top. Have I tempted you enough yet to give it a try? Don’t be shy, the water’s warm.
