Another fantastic soulful track from Men I Trust. They are on fire right now. The music video captures the 70’s-80’s skating rink experience brilliantly. The beat has the exact funky swing as Funkadelic’s “You’ll Like It Too.” Eric B. and Rakim sampled that in “I Know You Got Soul.” I’m looking forward to mashing Rakim’s rap to this Men I Trust track. They will match perfectly.
[new] Kelela – “On The Run” (89bpm Fmin)
Buttery, soulful vocals. She sounds a lot like Yukimi Nagano.
[new] Baby Rose – “Go” (70bpm A♯min)
[new] Jenevieve – “Love Quotes” (75bpm Amaj)
[new] Men I Trust – “Hard To Let Go” (71bpm Amin)
[new] Anderson East – “Madelyn” (90bpm Bmin)
[new] VanJess – “Come Over” (101bpm A♯min)
VanJess is made up of sisters Ivana Nwokike and Jessica Nwokike. “Come Over” is a mellow soul/funk groove that’s just as easy to get up and dance to as it would be just have running in the background. They complement each other well with one sister singing the verses with her lower-pitched voice and other singing the chorus in her higher-pitched voice. Grab your honey and dance to this one; you never know what might happen next!
[fav] Snakehips feat. Kaleem Taylor – “Forever, Pt. II” (95bpm A♯min)
[new] Yebba – “Distance” (70bpm Cmaj)
This record, especially the beginning, sounds like it might have been produced by Zero 7. I like this song for its instrumentation, arrangement, and soulful vocals.
