I hope this summer has been as great for you as it has been for me. Then again, I always think summers are great because that’s when I celebrate my Mom’s and two of my sisters’ birthdays — talk less of my own. This year’s hot season was mostly a blur. But, anytime I’ll try...Continue reading
Roll & Coasters
I don’t know about you, but over here we get bombarded with a lot of music on a regular basis. In our quest to find the best way to share our discoveries, we came up with ‘Roll & Coasters’: one of our earliest ideas, R&Cs were video playlists relying on the latest music videos posted on YouTube.
With the rising popularity of other digital streaming platforms, we started replicating our YouTube playlists to the other major streaming outlets. And that’s how all our playlists are presented nowadays.
What hasn’t changed over time is how we come up with the R&Cs playlists: pool together music videos released within a week, and make a cohesive arrangement of 20-some songs. You tell us what you think.

But better late than...Continue reading
R&Cs: Can’t Say
Do you remember a certain Kanye West video that played like an elaborate Balmain campaign? Product placement in videos isn’t nothing new and it actually makes financial sense. That doesn’t preclude the powers that be to make a good video. And Travis Scott shows you how it should be done with “Can’t Say”. The video...Continue reading
As I alluded earlier, DJ Khaled’s latest album is out and one of the tracks we were so eager to hear was “Higher”, one of the last songs Nipsey Hussle worked on before he was fatally shot. The video, which was filmed in Nipsey’s beloved Crenshaw just days prior the tragedy, was the first in...Continue reading
I’ve been a fan of Martin Garrix for a few years now and I’m always eager to fit him in any of the playlists we put out. I was fascinated by Mike Yung’s story and I’m in awe of his resilience. So, it was a no-brainer to start off with “Dreamer”, the first fruit from...Continue reading
