Anyone who follows me on Snapchat (@amazonprincesa) has witnessed me obsessing over this mix the past few days. I have no idea who Peder is or where he came from but I do know this mix by Lido, based off of Kanye West’s ‘Life of Pablo’, is the tits. I encourage you to listen (preferably in your car with the bass on 10) and enjoy.
My incredibly dope friend, Etinosa (HEY EJ!) put me on to Anderson .Paak sometime last summer and I was instantly a fan/wondering how no one had put me on before. .Paak dropped his most recent project, ‘Malibu’, back in January and between the trippy yet super soulful beats and .Paak’s melodic voice, it’s become a staple. Not to play the comparison game, but if The Foreign Exchange, The Robert Glasper Experiment and K. Dot collaborated, it would be ‘Malibu’.
This song floated across my Twitter timeline earlier this week and has been in heavy rotation since. Noname Gypsy and SPZRKT are two artists I really enjoy so having them on a track together is love. Noname’s distinct voice flows over the bright beat while SPZRKT slides in with his soulful crooning. The song is the official single for Gypsy’s upcoming project Telefone and if this is any predictor for the album, we definitely have something to look forward to.
