Welcome to this week’s edition of Sunday 5elect, where Economix readers get insight into the top five tracks dominating my headphones right now. This week has a diverse mix of future bass, hip-hop and downtempo vibes. Enjoy below!
1. it’s different – Shadows (feat. Miss Mary)
it’s different has been pushing out fantastic remixes for prestigious artists like The Chainsmokers, Illenium and MAX, but his most recent achievement is an original song titled “Shadows”. Blending a drum-and-bass style beat with more accessible future-bass synths, it’s different succeeds in creating a danceable and moving track.
2. Aryay – Never Gonna Leave (DNMO Remix)
With this remix DNMO spins the already energetic, future-bass “Never Gonna Leave” into a much more danceable and fun version of itself. Reminds me of a 2015 Whethan song.
3. joneses – no1nextoyou
This is the first track I’ve heard from joneses and I gotta say I like his vibe. Very chill, downtempo and slightly haunting “no1nextoyou” is a prime example of how a simple track with clean production can be emotionally powerful.
4. MADEINTYO & 24HRS- MY WORD (PROD BY IZZIE)
MADEINTYO and 24HRS team up for this downtempo, emotional hip-hop track with a positive vibe. A far cry from “Uber Everywhere” or “I Want”, this song is a touching tribute to keeping one’s word to one’s homies and hoes.
5. Louis Futon – Zoned Out Vol. 2
This is one of the most fun mixes I’ve heard in a while. A lighthearted mix of classic party hip-hop and modern indie electronica, Louis Futon hits the spot with some supreme DJing.
