missed this super cool pop slice last year and i guess that doesn't matter when it sounds this fresh and timeless. thanks to bridget for passing it on, such a relatable little jam and i'm keen for more in 2021.

once again lâlka has her dancefloor magnet out in full force, dragging you to a df in the year 2045. and brux's added spice is a bonus that we have to thank the space gods for.

everything about this is so sad but in the best way. i've listened 4 times in a row and can't get over how well you've summed up a mood.

this one has sent me spinning at a rapid rate. it's gazey, reverb soaked and muscular and doesn't let up!

are we witnessing something special here with pricie? sure feels that way! 'too dang good' is the type of song that lights up a room and ignites a crowd into a real frenzy.

ooooft there's such drama and grace on this super charged jam from mia. i was gonna say it belongs in a big stadium but i'd prefer to be spellbound in an old theatre as a full band and choir takes this to almighty places. mia wray is going places, ain't no doubt about it.

yaw and tawanda have whipped up such a moreish slice here. there's some early 00's rnb / hip hop feels to bits of it as well to give it a nostalgic appeal.

someone served kevin parker a double scotch on the rocks and he's chilling out in the corner of the room with this song playing in his head.

boysclub have dipped into their grunge wardrobe on this one and pulled out some legit 90s threads that have people staring in the street. it's somewhere between head nodding and head banging and the coiled, invigorating energy is impossible to miss.

when aya yves opens up her heart like this it's like she's inviting you into her space and spilling her guts to you and what a privilege that is.
