Kodiac Soul – The Lives We Choose EP

“The Lives We Choose” is one of my favorite projects I’ve heard all year. I’m a sucker for downtempo hip hop and electronic artists, and Kodiak Soul creates just this on his new EP. Atmospheric vocal chops and soft synths glisten over driving beats to create tracks that tickle my ears every time they come on. If you’re the kind of person who would rather chill out than rage, these tunes are meant for you. Throw them on at your next kick back and vibe out.

Carter Reeves – Pay Day

This is a nice addition if you’re lining up a summer playlist. Carter Reeves is tapping a groovy accessible sound. It’s got upbeat reggae along with rap and a little bit of everything else. Great to throw on for your friends who’re into pop or rock as well.
