Petite Noir

Petite Noir – MDR

Summer may be nearing its end, but there’s no reason we shouldn’t enjoy summer infused jams for a little bit longer. “MDR” is the newest track from Petite Noir and it’s one everyone should be adding to their end of summer playlists. It has a tropical rhythm and a light, fun sound that’ll make anyone start swaying along. It also doesn’t hurt that the lyrics are utterly romantic, “Did you know you’re beautiful, in every single way?”  This may even be the track for summer lovers. Either way, it’s one to check out. Listen to “MDR” below and be sure to look out for Petite Noir’s debut album La Vie Est Belle/ Life Is Beautiful, out September 11th.

Tape Tuesday: Welcome to Summer

New Tape Tuesday!

Okay, I know it is a Saturday, but today is also June 1st a.k.a. the beginning of the summer months. Did you really expect me to drop a summer mixtape on any other day? Welcome to Summer is the perfect driving-with-the-windows-down mixtape. Like, that is the sole reason I made it. Whether you’re rolling into town blasting RL Grime‘s remix of Chief Keef (making eye contact with the old lady in the car next to you at a stoplight) or just shouting the lyrics of Planetarian‘s “Swim” at the top of your lungs as you cruise down the interstate, this mix works. Plus, how legendary is the sequence of Chance The Rapper into Reggie Watts into Chief Keef into Disclosure?

  1. Fyfe – Introduction
  2. Rhye – One of Those Summer Days
  3. Heems – Medium Green Eyes (ft. Safe)
  4. Kitty – Dead Island
  5. Tyler, The Creator – Bimmer
  6. Planetarian – Swim
  7. Peter and Kerry – Fucking Around
  8. Thundercat – Oh Sheit It’s X
  9. Autre Ne Veut – Play by Play
  10. Everything Everything – Don’t Try
  11. Pigeon Hole – June
  12. Bayou – Forever Deluxe
  13. Chance The Rapper – Pusha Man (ft. Nate Fox & Lili K.) [Edit]
  14. Reggie Watts – The Monster and the Princess
  15. Chief Keef – Love Sosa (RL Grime Remix)
  16. Disclosure – When a Fire Starts to Burn
  17. Petite Noir – Noirse
  18. Francis and the Lights – ETC
  19. San Cisco – Outro

You daydream about the sea, and I daydream you’ll be mine,
Underneath the shade of leaves, stars over the trees,
Spending a whole summer with you that sounds alright, I’ll,
Meet you in the evening so we can swim tonight


P.S. In case you missed it I made a promo video for this tape. First ever, very rare.

Petite Noir – Noirse [Music Video]

New Petite Noir!

Lyrics in music are generally used to convey a feeling. Some artists like to complicate things and talk through metaphors. Others like Petite Noir on “Noirse” cut straight to the good stuff with simple yet powerful words. This is one of those rare songs that cannot quite be categorized in current genre structures (he calls it ‘noirwave’), but whatever it is I feel ten times cooler listening to it. Support good music, and purchase Yannick Ilunga’s (freakin’ cool name) remix EP here.

Show me your secrets, why you so pretty, girl,

Show me your beauty, let’s take it easy, girl,

Show me a good time, you’re always on my mind, girl,

Let’s have a party, just you and me, girl

[via P&P]

Bonus! Stream my other favorite Petite Noir track.
