Future Classic: Nas “Daughters” + “Cherry Wine”

So I finally sat down and gave Nas’s new album Life is Good a full listen and have to admit that I really wish I hadn’t. When I gave the album a first skim through I found two gems on it that really made me expect the best, but turns …

Future Classic: Toro Y Moi + Tyler The Creator “Hey You”

When we heard that Tyler and Toro Y Moi were doing studio sessions it definitely got our attention. Just wasn’t a pair of dudes we were expecting to work with but it does make perfect sense when you think about it a little. Not sure if an EP or full …

Future Classic: Koreless “Lost In Tokyo” (Jacques Greene Remix)

Vase head and shadow prince Jacques Greene contributed an ethereal B-side remix of Koreless‘ “Lost In Tokyo“, shedding a light on what may be but a fraction of what the pair still has to offer in the future. The dark yet light revisit holds true to the Jacques Greene-esque untamed …

Future Classic: Frank Ocean “Crack Rock” + “Pyramids”

When estimating the longevity of a new release, powerful two-song sequences are perhaps the clearest indicator of that album’s potential. Think I Would Die 4 U/Baby I’m A Star on Purple Rain or Beat It/Billie Jean off of Thriller. Those kind of one-two punches will have anyone kissing the canvas …
