Best of September has dropped just in time for you to recover from a wild weekend and an awesome summer. What a great way to wrap up a crazy summer, right? For the frequent fliers, you know the drill. For those of you just joining us, why did it take you so long?
Excellent month with some hidden gems so be sure to check out every song! My top 5 and download below!
Jordan’s Top 5:
This is my favorite cut off of Best of September. This is my first time even hearing the name Johnny Rain, but this song? This song right here? One of my favorite cuts of the year. It’s like a combination of Drake, The Weeknd, Fergie, & Jesus. The amount of times I’ve sat in my room, belting out words along with Johnny, is pretty high.
TRAILS & WAYS covers Miguel’s “Sure Thing” adding their own touch and one way to describe it is “a bundle of joy with a mixture of awesomeness.” It’s pretty fucking good. They usually never disappoint.
This was overlooked, but is starting to find it’s way across the internet and into people’s computers. Jez Dior impresses with Candles, but can he keep it up? That’s the big question.
The swagged out song off of G-Eazy’s latest effort, Must Be Nice. You gotta love the Hoodie + G connection. Cause if you don’t know by now, you should probably get familiar.
It’s the dream team. This has taken over college campuses, the radio, and the internet by storm. Easily one of the best songs off of the disappointing album, Cruel Summer.

Well folks, we made it. 2012 has come. There were rumors that the world was going to end on May 21st, 2011. But it didn’t. So that’s cool.
I don’t know about yall, but I’m really fucking excited to see what 2012 brings for music lovers such as you and me. This month, I’m going to be keeping my eye on three artists who I believe are only scratching the surface with their talent right now. These artists are going to be big. Quote me. It’s happened with artists we’ve chosen in the past (some include Fitz & The Tantrums, The Tallest Man on Earth, Yelawolf, Tennis, Childish Gambino, Odd Future, Cults, Youth Lagoon and more)
You guys are going to be the most popular kids in town when you throw this mix on for your New Years Eve pregames. Not even kidding. These aren’t just any mashups. These are THE BEST MASHUPS OF 2011. Hit the jump for the full playlist. The songs are listed in no particular order. They’re mashed up, if you will.
I apologize in advance for making you feel like death on January 1st, 2011. Ring in the new year with a bang, right?
Have fun. Get sloppy.
It’s been a few months since I’ve done an Artists on the Dashboard, which gives me so much more motivation to keep moving on these, because the list of artists about to break out into the limelight is robust. It’s bursting at the seams. This is an exciting time for a lot of the artists that I’ve been following for a while now, and it’s an exciting time for artists I’ve never heard of who I believe have the ability to make it in the very near future. The three artists of choice this month are Theophilus London, Cults, and Lyn Charles. Hit the jump for descriptions and MP3 samples from each artist on the dashboard.
