So, I finally realized the beauty of using sets on SoundCloud. This format will make it waaay easier for you guys to stream Best Five Dance from now on. I mean, just press play once and it’s game over.
Opportunity dances with those already on the dance floor.

Unless your from Greenland (sorry Greenland audience), the rapidly approaching summer means a couple thangs: tank tops, sunglasses, bikinis, cold dranks and of course, live music. One of my favorite things to do on a hot ass summer day is to hit up an outdoor concert. Coachella has already come and go, but we still got plenty of big boys to come, including Bonnaroo, Pitchfork, Summerfest, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, etc.
Will ya’ll be attending any shows this summer? What are you most looking forward to?
Oh yeah, happy #Friday.

5. Let’s Go! (Original Mix) – Krftkds
Yung Rapunxel aka Azealia Banks aka the reincarnation of Missy Eliot just unleashed this new jam off her SoundCloud. It’s a busy song with an even busier flow by Ms. Banks that’s sure to get people on their feet. Looks like this one is a cut off her upcoming mixtape, Fantastic. Ooh wee.

4. FUCK UP THE FUN (Prod. By DIPLO & DJ MASTER-D) – Azealia Banks

I’ve said it before, but Azealia Banks is giving Nicki Minaj a run for her money. She’s paired up with Diplo this time around to create a marching-band drumline sound and some rapid, rolling lyrics. She talks a bit about how she’s touring in Japan right now, getting that money for real, for real, for real, for real. Yall digging this?
Harlem native Azealia Banks teamed up with producer Machine Drum on this Aaliyah sampling jam. It’s soulful and hot all at the same time. I can dig it. Not as much talk about “cunts” in this song, however, as you might remember AB for on her breakout song “212” shown below.
