For real though, how many “real” friends do you really have? It’s hard to come by when so many people want something from you.
Swish finally drops February 11, 2016.
Oh what a year it has been for music! Honestly, there were so many high profile releases (and surprises) out this year that we really didn’t need everything that dropped. People don’t have the same attention span like they did in the past were we would take the time to listen and enjoy new music. With all that said, let’s see what made the cut for the annual Heroin Tracks top albums of 2015 list.
This list is decided by the number of rotations that I’ve listened to on these albums. Unlike all the lists that are out, some of those people didn’t even take the time to let an album soak in, they just listed it for the sake of having it. The only album that I was most disappointed with was Travis Scott’s Rodeo so it didn’t make my list. Here is a list of albums that I’ve had playing all year long in no particular order:
Heroin Tracks – Top Albums of 2015
Kendrick Lamar: To Pimp a Butterfly
The Internet: Ego Death
Drake: If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late
Bryson Tiller: Trapsoul
Dr. Dre: Compton
Puff Daddy & The Family: MMM
Ty Dolla $ign: Free TC
Meek Mill: Dreams Worth More Than Money
The Weeknd: Beauty Behind The Madness
Tyler, The Creator: Cherry Bomb
Lupe Fiasco: Tetsuo & Youth
Justin Bieber: Purpose
Rich Ross: Black Market
Pusha T: King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude
Let me know what albums you had on rotation this year.
Middle of the summer and Majid Jordan finally releases some new shit! Well, not really new but a remix or should I saw a re-work of their last album. Whatever, I’ll take what I can get.
Besides being from London, UK, and having a fantastic voice, I really want to know Leo Kalyan is before his rise to superstardom. Kalyan has an EP coming out on July 24th and the below track is just a preview on how smooth it will be.
Rodeo is gonna be so louuuuud!
As we wait for the full EP, here is XO’s second track “U & I”, and features the amazing Shay Lia, after her recent collab on XL Recordings w/ Kaytranada. The Ethereal Experience is coming soon!
GOALS. Wildheart finally comes out on June 29th.
Can’t wait to see you this long weekend girl.
Hot off the back of his debut EP Through The Night, XO’s is back with some brand new ‘ish!
With his new album, The Ethereal Experience, dropping on July 20th, he shares the first single; “Flames Of A Phoenix”.
Easing you in as a smooth funkfilled ride. With builds that rise you up, and then let you cascade back down like a sack of feathers it gives a sense of presummer nostalgia.. Before it’s ultimately snatched away again by the outro. Unexpectedly whisking you into a totally different soundscape, which will no doubt leaving you reaching for the replay button. Over. And over again.
If you don’t know XO then you should really get to know his music because he’s been named as one to watch by the likes of; Pitchfork, NME, Noisey, Complex and more. Plus gained backing from heavyweights; Diplo, Annie Mac, Chase & Status, SOHN, How To Dress Well, and my favourite MNEK!
