[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I love music, you love music, we all love music! So because of this, in conjunction with my new single ‘At Night (I Think About You)’, I've made a playlist of the stuff my ears are enjoying right now I call the ‘At Night Jamz’ playlist.
Ray BLK - My Hood
Ray is so talented. I grew up with her in this hood she sings about (Catford, SE6!). So sick to see her doing her thing and making bangers while at it.
Janet Jackson - Empty
Honestly one of the most forward thinking pieces of music ever. And Velvet Rope!
Becky Hill & Little Simz - Back to My Love
Two of my favourite women in music together on a track - couldn't ask for more really!
Alicia Keys - In Common
The Afrobeats vibes and lyrics and everything on this is too sick!
Black Box - Everybody Everybody
One of my favourite dance tunes from ‘Dreamland’, my favourite dance album of the 90s. Martha Wash is queen.
Jorja Smith - Blue Lights
Such a talented young girl with a beautiful voice and an amazing spirit.
Yuna - Lanes
I love a tune with fun chords and vocals that just sit right in the mix. I heard this song on the radio and my ears instantly pricked up.
INOJ - Love You Down
I love the Miami bass elements in this tune and also the juxtaposition of the sad tune with a dance beat.
SG Lewis - Yours
This is incredible. Raye is singing on the song but it's pitched down to sound cool and edgy and it worked; I love it!
dvsn - Too Deep
One of my favourite songs in a while. I loved the 90s R&B choir of vocals around it with this really sensual lead male vocal almost being the conductor of the song.
MNEK’s single ‘At Night (I Think About You)’ is out now.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Give all this a try
The fourth instalment of the band's signature mixtape series has landed. We caught up with Dan Smith to find out what's going on with Bastille.
Drenge are kicking off 2019 with a surefire albums-of-the-year contender.
The 1975 have just released their third album, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’. A staggering work of shifting expectations, it’s quite probably their masterpiece. To find out more, Dork headed round to frontman Matty Healy’s house to quiz him on what life’s currently like in the most exciting band on the planet.
It also, not entirely coincidentally, breaks from the usual summer festival sausagefest template.
