So the #PLAYBOOK series is a new monthly set of all the newest music I'm listening to, featuring all genres and all types of music. If you're always dying for new music, you can stop tripping now. From experimental Hip-Hop to Techno, it's all gonna be here.
Myd - Same Old Brand New You
It's just an incredibly funky record. Super playful, but super serious at the same time. Instant feel-good record on the dance floor. Myd is out of France and has worked with Theophilus, founded Club Cheval, all while releasing records with Brodinski on Bromance. He has a groove. Definitely playing this a lot.
Key! - Cried In The Trap
You should know Key! by now, but if you don't it's because you're sleeping. (It's okay, that's what this is for.) Key! has had his hand in most of the big internet records (like "Wrist"), and your favorite rapper is biting him. "Cried In The Trap" is the latest record, and it just shows how easy it is for him. I've been keeping up with Key! since my time in Atlanta, and can honestly say he won't be going anywhere for a while. I've almost never heard a record I haven't liked yet. Go listen for yourself.
Plies - Thick (Snappy Jit Remix)
Plies is just a classic Florida Boy, so you know what it's gonna be with a Plies record. This record is just too Dade, and with the Uncle featured on it, it's just screaming twerk. This is my whole wave. Snappy Jit has been killing everything lately too, and I'm a fan as of late. Thick, thick, thick, thick-
21Savage - Out The Bowl ft. Key!
So OPB is Key! and friends, with 21Savage being the newest young and reckless voice from the clique. Super street music, not that watered-down commercial sh*t they like to claim. This is the stuff that's super awesome to me, for personal reasons, and because I feel like this is the new punk. 21Savage has a story behind him, and TrapMoneyBenny producing the record is gonna give you that Zay 2.0 feel every time. Rider music.
Djedjotronic - TRAFFIC
Instant favorite. If you know anything about me, or about Miami Bass, this record is just too nostalgic. Super accurate, and it just takes you right back to 1987. This is the sound I stand for, and plan on having everybody popping and locking again. Djedjotronic has been a favorite of mine since about two years ago, and it doesn't look like that's changing soon.
Big Sean ft. Jhene Aiko - I Know (Miami Marci Remix)
This record is special to me. I like what Big Sean's doing, I love Jhene, and I re-imagined this record to move and feel like Miami and Brazil. It's definitely Miami, it's definitely Freestyle, it's definitely Baile Funk for my Brazilians, and it's obviously gonna make you dance. Duhhhh. If you listen closely, too, you might hear yours truly in the background.
Etnik - MVMT No. 2
Etnik is out of Germany, and I wrote about him previously. His last record Celsius has me tripping, and now this one has me tripping again. Super aggressive, super dirty, and super technical. This is the Electronic stuff that pushes everybody to be better and make better music. Can't wait to play this in a dark room.
Denzel Curry - Captain Sea Fonk
Zel has been snapping. I'm super proud of Denzel Curry, because he's an example of staying true and having a team around you to push your vision. Curry is repping very hard for Miami, more specifically Carol City, and it's time for it to be like this. The record feels like 8:30 at night down 183rd. I can't help but vibe and feel like the man to this. Go buy 32Zel/Planet Shrooms right now, because these are the projects you're supposed to spend the few bucks on.
Maelstrom - 20150602MFDCV
DJ tools. Miami Bass is all over this one, and it had me frowning up as soon as I heard it. Another dark, sweaty Techno record reminiscent of Miami Beach and 808s all over the world. I'll definitely be mixing old R&B into this to have fun. Maelstrom is out of France also, and works closely with the Louisahhh!!! and the Bromance family too, so all of this makes sense.
Miami Marci - Young ft. Jace and Curtis Williams
This song means a whole lot to me. Jace and Curtis Williams are out of Atlanta, part of arguably the most forward rap collective in recent time, Two-9. I recorded this record between Miami in Atlanta, around the time Mike Will dropped Ransom. I'm glad to be able to call these dudes and the whole Two-9 gang my homies, and this is that record for the 2015 Young Man. It's an anthem, Jace vibes, Curtis snapped, and Prodigal Son is about to go crazy.
