This was a month of madness. March Madness! See what I did there? Basketball is my favorite sport, but unfortunately for us basketball lovers, this has nothing to do with basketball. This is just a playlist filled with what I think is the top 30 songs of this month. I’m also depressed because Ohio State lost last night. Fuck.
Jordan’s Top 5 (in no particular order):
This reminds me of why I fell in love with J. Cole’s music in the first place. This is pure fire. It’s ridiculous. Bonkers. Crazy. An anthem for his home. This is arguably one of my favorite songs from Cole. Yeah, it’s that good. Did I mention how good it is?
The production from Xaphoon Jones is always legit and Chiddy is consistent for the most part. This is a song for the car, yano? The type of song high schoolers blast with their windows down as they leave their high school’s parking lot. They got that vroom vroom, and their bass got that boom boom.
I mean, it’s new Frank Ocean. Pretty girls and sports cars, duh.
I found this gem via our submission email. One of my favorite indie songs currently on my computer. Keep in mind I don’t have that much indie since I’ve just become a recent fan, but still, this was good enough for a Tape Tuesday. That alone tells you the quality.
If you follow me on Twitter, or just have some sense of who I am, you know Levels is one of my favorite songs of all time. I’ve spent countless hours listening to Levels. From the original to the infinite amount of remixes. This one, however, is the best Levels remix. This is the remix that should put any other past and future remixes to rest. Flipping the synths completely turns Levels into a brand new, more upbeat track, but it’s still not better than the original.
