1. Sheezus – Lily Allen
Not my fave in terms of production, but Lily Allen has always been a total badass and this song just confirms that.
2. Still Together – Mac DeMarco
I’ve heard the name floating around for a while and never really gave him much thought. Finally started listening on a whim and I’m so mad I ever doubted the magic that is Mac DeMarco. This song is incredibly simple, but I swear to god it does things to me every time I play it.
3. High You Are (Branchez Remix) – What So Not
I have no idea how I missed this song when it came out last year, but I guess better late than never. It’s not super original, but it’s a great upbeat track that’ll put you in a good mood for sure.
4. NRG (Hudson Mohawke) – Duck Sauce
Now for an upbeat, good-mood song that IS original! I actually really like the original radio edit too, but HudMo’s heavier beats add another unexpected but amazing level to the track.
5. Fancy ft. Charli XCX – Iggy Azalea
Damn I love Iggy so much. This song is incredibly simple but makes me feel boss every time I play it.
6. Shot Caller – Tchami
I’ve had this song for a while so it’s kind of phasing out of my rotation, but Tchami is a total badass and is killing the house scene right now. A+++, must listen.
7. Get Over You – DJ Q
This song is everything I want in a track right now. It’s house at its core but with some pretty clear jersey/future/whatever elements thrown in (sorry, genres are hard).
8. Party Dip – DJ Yolo Bear
I downloaded all of the LuckyMe advent calendar tracks a few months back, and this was the first song that really stood out to me. It’s a great intro into the world of jersey club (I think? Sorry, genres are really hard).
9. F1 Totoro – Lumumba
Found this randomly on iTunes so I have no idea who Lumumba is or what fucking genre this is, but if you’re looking for a well constructed electro track with a SICK F1 sample, definitely check it out.
10. Fallback – Peedi Crakk
Rap is my comfort blanket for sure. For me, this is just one of those old school tracks that feels instantly familiar when I hear it.
11. Huzzah! – Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire
Sorry – this is ratchet af. Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire is some small time rapper who made his way onto the Stereogum monthly playlists and into my life. I love him and this song.
12. Good Pussy in Chicago – Mr. Muthafuckin eXquire
This too. Not sorry.
