TMT’s Du du ke
Playlist: Spotify | Apple Music
Pink - 234jaydaa, Sober Seven - This is the most Toro y Moi sounding song on this playlist and there is an actual Toro y moi song on this playlist.
Settle Down - Mcevoy - “All I need is just a piece of your time and, well, maybe a bottle of wine” is a message I tend to approve around this time of the year.
1983 - Dutch Melrose - Has all the staples of a really douchey song that you only hear in a CW tv show. Yet I like it.
Vex oh - Kaytranada- For years people have wondered what a Kaytranada acrobats song would sound like and for seem reason that I cannot explain he has brought this to life.
Baby drive it down - Toro y moi - Let’s keep this party going guys
W - Koffee ft Gunna - Koffee keeps proving she plans to own 2020. I could drink to that. Please notice how I said “drink” and not “toast” because I’m not a complete piece of shit
Take Off - Am!r occupies a special place in my mental music classification folder called “strange people in music”.
You’re not good enough - Blood Orange - Well produced, badly written. Delicious
Heavenly Maybe - Gangahr - This is my come down song rn. When you’ve spent the afternoon getting drunk on the beach, this is how you get sober so you can drive home.
Timi’s Du du ke

Man it’s been a hectic December. Work wan finish your boy, and that’s why this is coming late.
Animals - Tamu Massif: I was sold at the first few lines of the first verse. Imagine my chest clutching when we arrived at the hook and it was better!
Sines - Greg Wanders: “And I will lay my all for you, just so you can see it too, just so you can feel it too: the seamlessness of me and you”. It’s such a beautiful song. I also like the name, because it’s a math thing (I think so because the cover art has something that looks like the graph of sin x).
Night Flowers - Lo Ghost: There’s a crescendo around 2:27 at drives me crazy: “There’s blood in my body and it sounds like this..”. Just listen for yourself and see if you feel it too.
Oooh - Donnie Castle: Whenever I think of this song, I completely forget out it starts, then I play it and well, the first few seconds are almost nothing like the rest of the song. Anyway, it’s sick. And yes, they say “oooh” in autotune a decent amount of times.
Bonfires - Elder Island: This is another jam I love for driving. The hook is very 90 mph inducing. Try listening to this without bopping your head. Them no born you well.
Magic - Deborah Prest: Deborah sounds magical. I remember the first time I heard her, it was live at a 90’s baby event. I shall never forget.
Sparky - Santi: Santi has this way of crooning very calmly but still make you want to scatter galala. Sparky is the perfect manifestation of that ability.
Omnion - Hercules & Love Affair feat. Saron Van Etten: The duduke (beat/production lol) on this song is mind-bending. Almost makes me forget how good the vocals are.
Wolf - Sylvan Esso: You know how I feel about Sylvan Esso. They can do no wrong.
Far Away Place - Xinobi: This is what I imagine plays in clubs in Europe where the calmest drug everybody is on is molly. You know, with a certain demographic doing what they think is dancing. Yeah, poetic isn’t it? That “Far Away Place” takes me to a...far away place.
Goodbye - Apparat: Heard this song from this Netflix show called Dark. It’s a creepy ass song (much like the show). Or maybe I feel that way because of its association with the show in my head. Anyway, it’s the kind of song that your Nigerian parent might ask if you’ve joined cult upon walking by you listening to it. Needless to say, I love it.
