A$AP Rocky - Fashion Killa (Blackbird Blackbird Remix)

I have to say that I have been a fan of A$AP for a minute now. At first I was put off by his name assuming that it was a rip off of Aesop Rock, but once I heard a few of his jams, that notion quickly faded. In the past few days I found some super solid laid back remixes that have been clogging up my tape decks and i thought it time to share.

RAC - Let Go (ft. Kele & MNDR)

It has been a while since RAC has put out an original production and it seems that they are back at it again and in full force. The last RAC original was their track "Hollywood" ft Penguin Prison. Let Go features Kele (lead singer and front man for Bloc Party) heading up the vocals and Amanda Warner (lead singer for MDNR) following through with the Chorus line. This song has a nice airy feeling that's a welcomed reminder that summer is over yet! The song reminds me slightly of the Clash's track  Train in Vain. It is probably due to the catchy underlying bass line that creates an upbeat summery vibe. RAC has continued to produce another catchy fun track that just begs to be put on repeat, which is where it's stuck on my playlist at the moment.

Funk Is Not Dead

In fact, funk is alive and well.  I think Uptown Funk Empire from Versailles would agree

Same goes for Belleruche and Los Charly's Orchestra, both from London

And I'll leave you off with a man from Georgia named Clarence Reid, better known as "Blowfly"
