2013 Wrap-Up: Top Tracks #20-11

The National, Laneway Fest, September 2013 More great jams from 2013… #20 Rhye-Open (Amazon) The comparison to Sade was inevitable after one listen to Rhye’s “Open”.

REMIX FRIDAY: Kaytranada, Kendrick Lamar, Panic City, MNDR, Todd Edwards & more

(Photo via Jonathan Daniel/Getty) No time for a track by track description today, but I will say that “If” is probably my top Janet Jackson joint of all time.

New Mixtape: The Nark Knight Rises

I love when mixtape titles are this easy. “The Dark Knight Rises” is expected to have a running time of 2 hrs and 45 minutes. While this mixtape doesn’t have that many songs, it is a super-sized edition. I was all ready to send this on Tuesday and then Brother Ali, Kanye, Big Boi and […]
