THE #SundaySoundtrack has returned for its 23rd edition, and as always we aim to deliver a top list of tunes that we’ve been enjoying this week for you. Please let them help lift those hangover blues and make you forget that Monday is just around the corner or keep the party going for that Sunday funday hype.
Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü – ‘Where Are Ü Now (feat. Justin Bieber)’
I’ve been jamming to this song all week, I never thought I would truly enjoy a song featuring Justin Bieber but that all changed after hearing ‘Where Are Ü Now’. Epic house/dubstep production from Skrillex and Diplo make this one a tune to either chill to or keep the party going. Add in the delightfully surprising smooth R’n’B vocals from Biebs and we have a recipe for success.
The Notorious B.I.G. – ‘Hypnotize’
I’ve been feeling like a bit of ’90s golden era rap all week and who better than the main man Biggie? ‘Hypnotize’ comes from Biggie’s 1997 posthumous album Life After Death and is a great tune to strut about and shake that hangover off to!
Panic at the Disco – ‘Skid Row’
I don’t know how I missed this one but I am so glad to have discovered it this weekend and it’s absolutely stunning! The music of the Last Vegas band has always been heavily influenced by musical theatre so it makes perfect sense that Brandon Urie and Dallon Weekes have covered a song from the classic musical ‘Little Shop of Horrors’. ‘Skid Row’ is mostly faithful to the original Broadway sensation, jazzed up with some cars-y sith hooks and burst of electronic power chords. Dare I say it’s better than that original.
Robert Plant – ‘Rainbow’
Most people will agree that Robert Plant is one of the greatest front men ever to do rock music. With all the supreme talent in Led Zeppelin, no other singer could have brought what Robert Plant did to the band. His solo music is also superb and not always what you expect to hear. ‘Rainbow’ is a great example of Plant’s creativity. It shows his voice in its best light, complimented by heavy drums and some simple guitar chords. An all round great song, perfect for a little lift on a Sunday.
Chance The Rapper- ‘Paranoia (Prod. Nosaj Thing)
You might have heard Jamie xx’s rework of his 2010 track ‘Fog’, but the Los Angeles based producer is in his element laying beats for the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Kid Cudi. ‘Paranoia’ sees a venture further into what is fast becoming his signature slick rap form with Chance The Rapper. The Chicago native’s 2013 mixtape Acid Rap garnered critical acclaim, featuring track collabs from the likes of Ab Soul, BJ the Chicago Kid and Action Bronson. Four minutes and 36 seconds of guaranteed Sunday vibes.
Ebony vs Bicep – ‘Love Myself’
Another chilling rave anthem from the boys over at Feel My Bicep. Raw 909 drums, a haunting synth lead and a soulfully melancholic vocal sample all work together to create a nostalgic atmosphere on this club banger thats sure to demolish a few dancefloors.
