When you're in school, summer is the light at the end of the tunnel. It's the reason you keep holding on and it's always worth it. In the real world, it just means having pitt stains before you even show up to work, but, whether you're frantically writing formulas on your clammy palms or sweating in your blazer, this week's top ten free downloads will help you keep your cool. Less trap and more vibe.
Hatch, “What You Need”
Some crisp vocals and sweet vibes. This smooth track will keep things cool as the weather heats up. I wish it was a minute longer.
Skrux, “Lost In The Sea”
When it’s uncomfortably close to 100 degrees and things are either sticking to your skin or sliding off of it, there is only so much you can tolerate. Bump this track when you’re feeling flustered and maybe take a shower after.
Sage The Gemini, “Gas Pedal” (Arnold Remix)
Whoever Arnold is stripped this song bare and added his own along with some smooth transitions. Dirty track, clean remix.
Alizzz, “It Won’t Stop”
In five minutes this song covers every aspect of electronic music. Slow and sweet to funky and bassy. Smooth to choppy. Silver to gold.
Kasbo, “The Way You Love”
I honestly don’t even try to feature a Cream Collective artist on every single one of my playlists, it just happens. Cream Collective is great, Kasbo is great, this track is great. Download and jam.
Electric Mantis, “It’s Why We Get High”
This song will take you to twenty different places, but they’re all pretty chill. Stick around after the drop if you’re feeling funky.
RL Grime feat. What So Not, “Tell Me” (GANZ Flip)
The original track made the previous Top Ten Downloads of the Week and I can’t tell if this rework is slightly better or significantly better. I guess it depends on my mood. See for yourself.
OZZIE, “Smokin & Drinkin”
An interesting take on Jeremih’s “Birthday Sex.” I could do without some of the high pitched tweaks, but the track still kicks.
Mr. Carmack & Ta-ku, “Miss You Most (At Night)”
Everything I expected and just a little more from this sweet duo.
Jade Blue & Frequency, “Lately”
Some deep beats and bass for you to vibe to this weekend, whether it’s in the car or in the club.
