It’s time to get caught up with the work between producer Purpdogg and vocalist Souly Had. The two have released a batch of track in the last half year, spanning between hip-hop and R&B. “Sandman” cleverly flips the famous bubblegum pop track, while their newest, “Young and Dumb”, is a bar-heavy love narrative. Don’t sleep on these two.
Depending on where you live, it’s still cold as hell outside. Maybe some snow on the ground. How fitting, then, to give this 20 minute beat tape Winter Batch a spin. It’s a lofi excursion traveling through streets of icicles and cups of hot cocoa.
We’re still listening to Lucki’s project Watch My Back from last year, but in the last two weeks, he’s dropped two tracks with the producer Marcus Basquiat. The tracks “4everybody” and “Sports Mode” are exactly what you need to soundtrack your end of the night blunt. Even the artwork is cold.
Are you up to speed with the Set? The Illinois collective Leaf Set released a twelve track project back in December known as Film. With different pieces of art for every track, it feels like a slideshow in your mind, spanning across genres and time. Step inside with caution, step inside with dilated eyes.
It’s been out for a couple of months, but it’s necessary that we talk about this ZMoney tape right now. The seven song project is fully produced by ChaseTheMoney and features heater after heater. The standout here is “Look Up” with Chicago rapper Valee. Enjoy the video above and the full project below. Stay awake forever.
BB SUN has released a batch of tracks in the last few weeks and they’re all worth your while. With two tracks featuring Nedarb (one of which is a Lil Peep tribute), all five of the songs demand your time. The most recent is the heavy “Air it Out” with Antwon and Martin Unruly while a personal favorite is “Rental Car” which feels like a clouded night journey. UDF.
Twenty three beats courtesy of Hm Surf. Based out of Oslo, the Norwegian producer came correct with Waterbed, a 40 minute offering of lofi instrumentals. With a name like Waterbed and a production moniker that alludes to riding waves, it’s only right that you enjoy this one seaside or in a pool or in a hot tub. The choice is yours.
Dylan Reznick of production duo Friendzone (RIP James Laurence) has a solo project known as Chlorine Mist.

Stream it up above or grab it via UK electronic label Donky Pitch here: https://donkypitch.bandcamp.com/album/reset
San Antonio legend P2THEGOLDMA$K has released his first R&b/dance album in the form of Beyond Cloudt. The seven song project is an oozing journey of thick bass and fireside vocals. Invite P2 to your next dinner party, your next wine gathering, your next soiree. He just leveled up.
Because you need nine more minutes of instrumentals in your life. Producers Chief and Flavors teamed up for the five song Aura EP which was released back in October. Press play and zone out to the lofi greatness.
