#fridayfeelings: MTV's Weekly Music Roundup
Mothers day magic and the tracks to make you believe it's summer...
Ben Khan - '1000'
Ben Khan’s been knocking around for almost two years, slowly drip-feeding us his vial of sultry, one word titled electronic soup. His last offering came ten months ago, in the empowering yet trade markedly absent ‘Youth’. He’s back, we hope, with the intention to give 2015 a good going over with ‘1000’, a sharp burst of a decidedly happier sound.
Biggie X FKA twigs - 'Who Shot Papi?'
March 9th marked the 18th anniversary of Biggie Smalls’ death, and to quietly commemorate, a chap called Terry Urban quietly released an FKA twigs x Biggie mashup tape. It’s fan-bloody-tastic. Complete with a bruised purple artwork-mashup, 'Who Shot Papi' is a glorious, dancefloor prepped love child of Biggie’s 'Who Shot Ya?' and twigs’ melancholy anthem, 'Papi Pacify'. Well worth it.
Snakehips - 'Forever (Pt. II)' ft. Kaleem Taylor
Wheel out the barbecue, fix your flip flops and start getting drunk at 11am because it’s nearly summer. Or at least it’s starting to feel like it, with the help of Snakehips and this above zero temperature that we’re being hit with. Featuring the luxurious sounding vocals of Kaleem Taylor, 'Forever (Part II)' is a quick contender for song of the not-so-distant summer.
Axwell Λ Ingrosso - 'On My Way'
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a glossy trailer for a blockbuster film about the struggle of rich vs. poor and good vs. evil. It is in fact a new club anthem by Swedish duo Axwell Λ Ingrosso. Featuring a mega fight scene that looks so real because of the ‘ninja’ practice the pair had to endure, ‘On My Way’ is going to make you book flights for Ibiza straight away. Check out our exclusive interview with Axwell here.
Skepta - 'Sweet Mother'
SKEPTA LOVES HIS MUM. No matter how many stages he shares with Kanye, no matter how many MOBOs he wins, #mumbetterknow.
