Back at it again! We bring you the second installment of our Indie Selects playlist. This week we bring you sounds from artists like Speed Walton, Clapper the Rapper, WYZE and more. Tallying up a total of 20 tracks, you’ll be sure to find a bop or two that hits the spot. Peep how this playlist came to fruition.
One half of the Space Invadaz, Talib Kweli label signee Speed Walton has reinforced underground hip-hop with his eccentric lyricism and versatile flows; pairing eclectic samples with amusing and conscious rhyme schemes. The Ohio native recently unveiled his “Night Fall” video, the second release off his upcoming album, Real Name Speed. Check the audio release of “Night Fall” on our playlist below.
I was drawn in by Clapper the Rapper via his name. With a distinguishable name like that, how could I not open my email to give him a listen? His new song “Bikes And Brews” is is a fun summer-themed song about putting your worries aside. Thank me later for this poolside playlist addition.
With his Coachella performance on the horizon this weekend, Slow Magic returns with a new 4-song EP AWAY. The project is an effortless play for your ride to Coachella Valley, complete with experimental sounds and a labyrinth of synthesized lines with standout “HOLD ON,” an ambitiously percussive journey.
