doesn't drop a "Slow Jams" mix. Here's his tenth. Preview it below, then
While DJ mixes are some of the best ways to discover the sounds of dance music, that doesn't mean dance music DJs only
want to play dance music. Case in point, UK garage legend MJ Cole
. For his new Solid Steel

, Floating Points
, and Cole himself. Stream, download, and chill out below.

I don't know about you, but I'm a bit under the weather. That paired up with some chilly February weather has me wanting to stay in a hoodie and under the covers. Dark and gloomy status. It's times like this when I want to make sure I have the proper soundtrack for my turn down, and Inkke
's surprise compilation, Faded With Da Kittens Vol. 1
, perfectly matches my mood.
There's something about the blunted hip-hop influence in Inkke's sounds that always matches where my mind is at. This 11-track release feels like exactly what I'll be vibing to for the rest of this winter season. This cut "Slippin'" will be on repeat for the next half hour. The best part? It's available for whatever you want to pay
. Grab this 11-tracker ASAP, trust. Stream the full release down below.

I remember initially getting intoxicated by the trap stylings of the UK-based producer known as Hucci
. Part of it was that infectious drop of his, but the majority of it was just how slick and concise his sound was. I always wanted him to pop, but from what I heard/read, Hucci just couldn't work without samples.
Whatever the case may be, dude's still done for himself, taking his sound across the world. He's touched back down for his 21st birthday and decided to let loose a new banger, "Life." If you fucks with Hucci, you know the sound; moody, dark, and hypnotic. Dude's in the pocket on this one.
