Bag Raiders, J. Cole, Retro Culture & 22 More Artists: New Music Monday!

December 21, 2015

bag_raiders_friend_inside_skyelyfeI’m still on a musical high from Friday night’s Chris Brown concert at Hollywood Palladium. But even if you didn’t have a chance to see adorable baby Royalty hit the stage with her dad at the end of the show, you can still get in the Breezy spirit by checking out his new album (named after his little one), which dropped on Friday.

I personally think the already-released radio tracks from this album are his best of the latest options, but I’ve included his song “Anyway,” featuring Tayla Parx as part of this week’s New Music Monday.

Also in the mix this week are Bag Raiders, J.Cole, Death Team, The Toxic Avenger, Great Good Fine OK, Coyote Kisses, Diiv and Nora en Pure, among many others.

I must point out that up until this week, I was unfamiliar with Retro Culture and P’ARIS, but I’m totally in love with their songs “Cold” and “Focus” (respectively).

Click below for the full list of 25 fresh tracks, and check back tomorrow to get my list of songs perfectly fitting for the chill of winter!



Savoy, St. Lucia, Skrillex, The Knocks & 27 More Artists: New Music Monday!

December 7, 2015

Savoy_-_1000_Years_EP_skyelyfeObviously, the internet is abuzz today with news of the 2016 Grammy Nominations (woohoo, Tame Impala!) – and snubs (where was “Ayo“‘s nom?!).

But in the midst of anticipating the results of the big Feb. 15 awards show, let’s take a look at some new music. Heck, some of these could make 2017’s nominations list – who knows?

This week, I have 31 new songs, ranging from dubstep by Savoy and Skrillex, to lots and lots of chill stuff to ease you into the thick of December by Paperwhite, Retro Culture, Cinnamon Chasers, Geographer, Brothertiger, Aquilo and so much more! And who can leave out the new stuff by consistent skyelyfe favorites Miike Snow, St. Lucia – and The Knocks (featuring Cam’Ron, of all people! Does it get any better than this?!)

Check out the playlist below. I promise you will not be disappointed!
