You’re telling me that I promised you a ten song playlist every single week!?  “OOPS, DID I DO THAT?“, said in my best high-pitched, nasally Urkle voice. That’s a tall order, but a promise is a promise so Wait And Scene will deliver.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any CHEESE (obscure Family Matters reference), but I do have ten of the illest tracks from around the world!

1) Ryan Hemsworth Remix of Mikky Ekko- Pull Me Down

When the song Pull Me Down by Nashville singer-songwriter Mikky Ekko came out a month ago, I will couldn’t stop listening. His voice! Those lyrics! Produced by the ever amazing Clams Casino! It was all too much. Today we got a remix of this beautiful song by 21-year-old Canadian producer, Ryan Hemsworth. As he often does when he remixes, Hemsworth somehow manages to make this song even more special. I’m dying over here…

2) Brandon Fletcher – North Hollywood

Brandon Fletcher is a name that you probably don’t know now but I have a feeling you will pretty soon… This Harlem-based rapper released a dope seven song EP called Braille back in October and he gave us a taste of this song on that EP. This week, the entire new track called North Hollywood was released and it didn’t disappoint. The Pretty Woman intro and Dave Chappelle sample halfway through are killer. This song is about a girl from Miami who’s struggling to live the Hollywood lifestyle. Is it a totally far-fetched story that no one can relate to? Naw, I’m sure you’ve seen this once or a hundred times in the media…one good current example (and the picture that Brandon used as a visual for this single) rhymes with dinsey mohan.  REPEAT.

Flume a.k.a Harley Streten is a 20-year-old producer out of Sydney, Australia who just released his first album titled FLUME on Future Classic records (Note: I love Future Classic).The album has 15 hot tracks, with features from Chet Faker, Jezzabell Doran,T-Shirt, Moon Holiday, and George Maple. Flume received a lot of hype after the release of his first single Sleepless and, if you were a fan of that single, this album delivers exactly what you were hoping for; a smooth-as-silk combination of electronic, pop, jazz, soul, chill-wave, hip-hop, and other sounds I don’t even have the words for. Yeah, me without words, I know you’re all shocked. Stand out tracks on the album, as far as I’m concerned, are On Top, Bring You Down, and Holdin On.

Don’t Wait and Scene what Flume will become (See what I did there? Get used to it.), stream the entire album here on WAS and then buy a copy of the album here.
