Blood Orange: “Sutphin Boulevard”

This is so cool that it might make you feel more cool just by association. As you’re rocking Blood Orange in your headphones, you’ll find a smile playing on your lips as if you’ve got a good secret cause no one knows how effing cool the track that is playing in your ears right now but you know it…yeah you know it. That’s kind of how I felt this morning on the tube with this track and that’s the best way I can describe this chilled slice of japanese influenced chillwave Sutphin Boulevard, that guitar riff intro for starters will keep you hooked, and then those vocals…(seriously he sounds like Prince on this one)

How To Make it In America Mixtape: Volume Two

So I’m hooked on HBO’s How To Make It In America, its like Entourage but set in New York City and I actually like these guys, its a cool show so watch it. What is also super cool about it is its music selection. Music Supervisor Scott Vener (who also did Entourage and CW’s 90210) is so on point on his music selection its like he’s reading my mind. All the best up and coming blog favourites of the last year have been featured alongside old favourites too such as Theophilus London, Phantogram, The Rolling Stones, Quantic, Eric B & Rakim, Thievery Corporation, Joy Formidable, Waka Flocka Flame, Blue Oyster Cult and many many more. 

Scott Vener (Broke Mogul) has put out a mixtape for the show with Mick Boogie and it is great featuring Future Islands, Theophilus London, Joy Formidable, Little Dragon, M83, Avicii, Summer Camp amongst many others. Stream it below and download it here.
