April is a stressful month. Fun, but stressful. Those in school are gearing up for finals and a wild summer. If you’re no longer in school, I’m sorry because that’s unfortunate. The music scene this month hasn’t helped out the stress that much because frankly, there was a bundle of quality music released this month. Thus, a result of more stress because of so much music to listen to. This is already an issue as I’m preppin’ for finals.
You know the saying April showers brings May flowers? Well, we were spoiled this month with music, so May better bloom into these wonderful, high expectations.
Download link below, my top 5, and then the track list after the jump!
Lucki Eck$ made some noise on the blogosphere with “Count On Me.” It appeared on our 4/20 mix, as well. Count On Me is something that’s different, but still fresh, all at the same damn time. Top 5 nod.
Give it three listens, and you’ll be hooked. You’re going to like the way you ears feel, I guarantee it.
One of the best remixes I’ve ever heard in a while. Filthy. Cashmere Cat done did Miguel’s song dirty. And Miguel is getting to the point where it’s like “c’mon guys, it’s Miguel.” Sort of like how Frank Ocean is, but not like Frank Ocean.
Another track that appeared on our 4/20 mix, makes my top 5 as well. Ghost Loft captures the right electronic sounds and synths, and combines them appropriately to create a track you don’t need to be high for (but will be better in said state).
Drake’s been on top of his game lately. Is it safe to say Drake’s got something really cookin’ for us come the next album? Girls love Aubrey, but actually.
Honorable Mention: Josef Salvat, Daft Punk, Antonio Paul, Max Frost, The Hard Knocks

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t really fuzzy, was he?

If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you’d best teach it to dance.

1. Ghost Loft – Seconds (Twice As Nice Remix)
2. B.Dolla – Trill Collins
3. Montell Jordan – This Is How We Do It (Viceroy “Jet Life” Remix)
4. The Hood Internet – Zero Drum Thirty (Aesop Rock x Ohama)
5. Rihanna – Stay (Branchez Bootleg)
To revamp its latest single, “Let It Go,” The Neighbourhood elicited fellow Cali-native Ghost Loft to head-bobbing results. This remix keeps the ominous and stark vibes of the original, while adding some choice trap sounds that are oh so popular right now. Swerve, amirite?
