So, about this “Professor X” joint… Dave put in serious work to have a great 2019. And by all manifestations, this year has gone according to plan – you might say even better! On one hand, there is his latest album, PSYCHODRAMA, which is an absolute stunner! Then there’s his star turn in the revived...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.

Russ takes the lead here with “The Flute Song” off of his upcoming album, Zoo. It’s produced by the rising-again Scott Storch. I was able to...Continue reading
Autumn is around the corner; it’s time for you to bid adieu to the beach. We held the fort for you and can’t wait for you to dust off the khakis and get back to the grind. “One for the Summer” feels like the perfect sendoff for the past few months. It’s also disposition about...Continue reading
“BGM”, which stands for “Black Girl Magic”, is Wale’s latest single, off of his (already!) much-touted Wow… That’s Crazy. It’s tough to follow a Wale special that’s just as admirable as his summer super-smash hit “On Chill“. But if you have heavy hitters amid dark horses and eager beavers, then there’s little cause to be...Continue reading
