Monday is upon us, time to nurse that weekend hangover and make your way back to the productive world. To help you along your way, we are back with the next edition of SLE’s Music Monday. This week we have a eclectic collection of new and old music from various artists we think are killing the musical game. So, without further a due, lets dive into a couple tracks.
Wax Motif – “Make It Rain”
Starting off our Music Monday we have a track off Wax Motif’s new EP TOKYO. Released off of Tchami’s Confession label, the piece is a bass heavy ride filled with Wax Motif’s signature sounds. Interlaced in the track you will find vocal samples that one would normally expect to find in a G-House track. However, Wax Motif takes a much deeper approach that sets the piece apart.
DJ Khaled – “Wild Thoughts ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller (Medasin Remix)”
Continuing along down the playlist we come to the Medasin remix of the wildly popular track “Wild Thoughts.” I have to say, major fan of the approach Medasin took to this remix. Groovy, warm, and full chords drive the track as creative percussion introduces a great amount of variation and breaks. Combined with lyrics from Rihanna & Bryson Tiller and you have yourself a hit.
Oliver Tree – “Cheapskate”
To wrap up the list we have a new track out of LA’s own Oliver Tree. Experimental, alternative, but most importantly original, Oliver Tree has been making waves in the music scene for some time now. Personally, this is my favorite track so far. The vocals are treated beautifully and sung with such feeling. Keep an eye out for more out of this young musician.
That’s it for our song summary this week. Take a listen to the full Music Monday playlist below. We hope you enjoy!
