Pure Summer Vibes! “Apple of My Eye” by Jesse Whitney

Here is a friend of mine whom i met on Zoom (what a sad world that is), who then told me he was doing music while we talked about lizards, UFOs, conspiracies and Wikileaks and stuff…
Well send it he did! He made a super, uber-sweet beach, reggae, folky songwriter tune and it’s *****ing mindblowingly lovely! Play it at all summer, play at your garden party, play it in your barnhouse, play it on your balcony with your loved one! A proper 100% YUM YUM top tune, for the late night hours on the beach… Really wants me make a new Mixtape!
Proper music, not just some soundbytes to torture your brains memory center (actually lol’ed while writing this). Jesse is straight out of Melbourne, and spent some time in Berlin, where the hook-up happened, and although i am officially on team Sidney, simply bc my good friend Mat McHugh is from there, i should be biased (i am)  but this tune is some sweet, sweet summer wine. Check out “Apple of my Eye”!

ps. usually i would have posted a sunny beach pic like this, but Jesse has an unusally good so i had to repost it!

Dj Sosa – Orange Peel

Kind of tropical this kind of hiphop does feel (Yoda). I stopped listening to hiphop lyrics years ago, there are more important things in the world, like everybody wearing a slave mask, and that’s just so sad to see. So in this kind of situation where music has a different role than listening to some ego mantras, i am mostly looking for tunes with a positive or charming feel. Orange Peel and especially spiced up with that soul sample, gives it that certain bubbly bump. Hats off to Sosas production, for that tropical, sunny lofi-fruit and if that bad, reduced mix is itentional, even more kudos. Add it on Spotify

Ps here is a presave of that tune, and i only appreciate presaves where you can get something out of it, like this one. Everyone’s a dj and Spotify is not. So presave & download away !

A Storm On A Summers Day by Full Crate,Gaidaa

A Storm On A Summers Day by Full Crate,Gaidaa

Sounds like a chill breeze while sipping ice tea in front of your porch on a hot summers day while undocumented immigrants do your garden work. No, srsly it’s a solid production, super sweet for my ears, but also good for the hedonistic art heads that look for the deeper sense of being (beans) while soul searching in music, as in life (”target_audience_closing_in”). Kek, Heard it before and still like it. Props to the producers and songwriters

Door #23:F O U R a m – t h e M i x t a p e – by Temple Haze

Door #23 holds a special little surprise : An exclusive mixtape by Temple Haze, that is a selection and ride through his musical mind, displaying a lot of his soulful sketches, drafts and ideas. Temple did us a real favour and put together a Mixtape of his beautiful craft! In the days playlists, i am truly happy to have more raw mixtapes up on the site. Enjyo his one, i am just having it up on my speakers. Ps follow the man on Instagram & Spotify and check out his beautiful video of If i could be yours“.

This is what Temple had to say about his Mixtape of drafts and musical sketches:

Welcome to F O U R a m…

A compilation of demos, works in progress, drafts, old cell phone recordings, and throw-away-tracks that have been resurrected form long lost hard drives, dusted off, and given a fresh spin. This little journey is compiled of ideas from the past 5 years, from my very first productions and rehearsal room recordings (Life-Lines, WaitingForMyMan) to brand new compositions (Longing, F O U R a m).

Putting out this mixtape is quite a vulnerable feeling, as these songs are much more so drafts than finished products, but that is actually what is so great about it. The rawness, the diversity, just allowing them to be as they are and releasing them. Enjoy this ride through my musical brain!

Door #22 – Sun Cream Playlist by Dunjah Sabreen

Sun Cream by Dunjah Sabreen

Door #22 –  holds a phenomenal playlist that didn’t go online yesterday (caught up in your average human Christmas pre-drama). But here is another favourite of ours, Dunjahs 2nd playlist that is fully loaded with lost gems and hidden treasures, and that whenever it gets played  has people asking for the ‘what is that music’. Which is rare these days considering how over saturated and all around available the constant stream of music has become, and how much magic it has lost. Anyways, here is a return to the magic of music, if you like to listen closely and pay attention to the finesse and grace that songs can have… You probably know some of the tunes, and although i despise the term diversity due to the online SJW nonsense, this playlist is truly diverse – but has one thing in common – every song is pure sweet, tasteful goodness and has a loving undertone. Truly enjoy this one;)

Ps Door#23 coming in a few hours.
