New Track City does justice to a Dilla beat on “Do You Believe.” Bem and Chi.Stone’s rapid-fire references fill the track with clever word-play and a flow that’s consistently exciting from one verse straight into the next.
Why We Like It
On her single, “Freak Out,” GRAMN. teaches us how to groove along to the smooth rhythms of her unique soul sound. The artist explores the internal strife and conflict that can push us to the very edge, with a sound that keeps us hanging on.
Inspired by hip-hop groups like N.E.R.D. and Gorillaz, VIBE WORLD ORDER brings dance crazy beats and varied flows to “004,” a single from their EP, “What If We Kissed… At The Vibe World Show?” Each member adds a dash of personal touch to a track that’s constantly evolving from the second you press play.
