We have our first guest list! That’s where we get an entire playlist from a friend (or foe) and we’re pretty excited about it. This playlist has love, adventure, action, drama and Toro y Moi. I hope you enjoy it as much as Timi and I have. - TMT

Satin PSICODELIC - Sunni Colón: Satin PSICODELIC feels like chilling on a veranda in Havana late in the afternoon, watching waves on the ocean and smoking a cigar (I myself have never done that but Satin PSICODELIC makes me feel like I have). The song is haunting and sultry. Perfect combo.
December - IDK: I love a song with a journey and zero dry moments and I love a good mashup, so this song is everything. If the previous song doesn’t make you dance, this one will. Guaranteed.
Oui ou Non - Angéle: I like how she rides the beat with the lyrics. I primarily have no idea what she’s saying but, I feel her.
In the Morning - Odunsi (The Engine): This was one of the first Odunsi songs I ever listened to and till today it remains one of my favourites. It is an upbeat lucid jam with “Never Leave You - Lumidee” undertones.
Steal a Dime - Santi: I don’t have the words to explain this song yet because I’m still digesting how good it is. I hadn’t listened to many songs from this album but after I overplayed all the well-known Santi jams, I went back to check out Suzie’s Funeral and fell in love with the song.
Out of Body (feat. Kilo Kish, Zebra Katz & Imani Vonshà) - Gorillaz: One thing a lot of songs on this playlist have in common is that they’re experimental and take you on a journey of some sort. Out of body takes you on an electronic trip.
Tre Oh Fie_Waitin_150 Bpm (Tre Oh Fie Remix) - Kelala & Tre Oh Fie: Every time I hear this song (every single time) I want to drum along to the beat with a group of people on a cafeteria table or something. This song needs to be played in a way that all the beats in it can be heard in all their glory. It demands to be blasted on speakers.
Bathwater (Stripped) - WESLEE: If Bathwater was an emoji, it would be this "🥺." It is a romantic gospel tbh (like Take Me To Church by Hozier). It is also sensual AF. This too is a song that should be played very loudly. I'm a big fan of this version over the original.
On My Own (feat. Kid Cudi) - Jaden: Someone once pointed out to me how certain songs have two parts/are like two separate songs combined perfectly to one (i.e Frank Ocean - Pyramids) and I haven’t been able to un-hear that since. This song does it very well. The first part feels like that part of a movie when the protagonist just wins a battle and there is faint optimism in sight. The second part makes me want to sad-twerk.
5 Thousand Singles - SAINt JHN: If you don’t blast this song while speeding down a highway what are you doing?
Come Down - Anderson .Paak: Timeless. My intro to this song was Anderson.Paak’s npr tiny desk concert (I feel like it is important to watch that performance to feel the essence of the song). There are some songs that effortlessly show you the soul in them, and this is definitely one of them. Honestly, I can write an essay on how I feel about this song but I’ll spare you. Enjoy!
Vivid Dreams (feat. River Tiber) - KAYTRANADA: If you don’t blast this song loud AF on your speakers to feel the beat, what are you doing??? (I guess another theme is “songs that should be blasted”). This song is amazing because it serves you praise + worship vibes AND lsd trip. Anyways, clapping along to that I’m falling and I can’t deny it part as you wait for that beat to drop>>>
To My Love (Tainy Remix) - Bomba Estéreo: One of my favourite Afrobeats songs is With You by Lk Kuddy ft. Wizkid, it has the same under-beat of the chorus of this song, and I fell in love with both songs primarily because of that beat.
Freelance - Toro y Moi: I like when musicians do unconventional things in their songs like make gagging noises continuously. If you like that too, this is a song for you. Also, the lyrics are pretty fire.
Yeah I Know - The 1975: This is my current fave from the new The 1975 album because I like how awkward the beat is. I would put this song in a playlist with Feel the love by Rudimental and What is Love by Haddaway because vibes.
Without - Sampha: I always leave this song feeling bittersweet because I don’t want it to end but I know it’s perfect so, I have to be content with what Sampha gave me.
