Top 5 songs to smoke this week
OVEOUS, Don Kamares – “Legacy” (original mix)
On Yoruba Records, I was just blessed with this DJ promo. Male! Shake asses (pon de replay). Oveous is building a definitive catalog of songs that will stand the test of time.
PolyRhythm & Sheleah Monea – “Is It a Crime” (Doug Gomez Remix)
Incredible remake of SADE with the dynamic Sheleah Monea on vocals. Doug Gomez delivers a classic! Ezel and Shawn Lucas lend a hand on bass, piano and lead. The whole package is simply essential and available on Open Bar Music.
Black Coffee – “Wish You Were Here” feat. Msaki
He’s an example and an inspiration to us all – Grammy winner, huge in the DJ market. As a producer, he has surely achieved mainstream success and continues to push the boundaries. It’s a disruptor but in a good way.
And why not?
Who said we had to limit ourselves to the club. This track was released on Ultra Music.
Rocco Rodamaal – “Tbt3” (Osunlade Remix)
Another classic redrop this time touched by maestro Osunlade, released on Memories. It’s on my list of killers this year.
Norty Cotto – “Tamarindo” (Piragua Remix) / Made in Miami
Cotto’s resume speaks for itself. Although I love his remix work, it’s his productions that turn heads. Remarkable Latin rhythms. Big room sounds! That’s all we need.
