The Cocktail Hour ft. Kaytranada

Kaytranada has just released his first full length LP! I’ve really enjoyed watching Kay rise from the muddy waters of Soundcloud to become one of Canada’s bright northern lights.

99.9% is full of the dancey hip hop beats you love him for and spread over a nice mix of warm, melodic funk.

There is a slough of talented collaborators like BADBADNOTGOOD, AlunaGeorge, and Little Dragon but Kaytranada also shines on his own. My favorite track is Lite Spots and its the bouncy and funkiest.

Sassy Preview: Chet Faker

I’ve been a huge Chet Faker fanboy since the first time I saw him at Sasquatch. I’m a Sasquatch fanboy in general but guess what.. Chet is playing Sasquatch again! Not surprisingly hes on a bigger stage and the hype train is rolling out of the station folks so all aboard.

The Cocktail Hour ft. Fout Tet

Four Tet is one of those producers who I know is popular and talented but I never got exposed to him cuz he’s kinda weird and definitely not mainstream. Well not only have I come to realize that I’m missing out of some weirdly awesome music but this guy is playing at Sasquatch. If there’s a place for me to find a groove into a genre I wouldn’t normally slide into, it’s at a music festival. It’s what happened to me with Tycho and I cant stop listening to that guy.

Four Tet, I think I haven’t given you the chance to let me fall in love with you but I’m gonna tap into my younger me’s impressionable mind and see if we can make something click here. My guess is yes.

 

 

The Cocktail Hour ft. Viceroy

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve featured Viceroy on the Cocktail Hour. But lets face it, hes the embodiment of feel good Friday music. He’s Mr. SummertimeAllTheTime, baby. An inspiration in the winter time but when you get to cut out work early for a weekend getaway and the sun is shining then his flavor of tropical grooves is just what you’re looking for to drive off into the sunset.

Happy Friday, everybody!
