Friday Free For All: Daniel T, ILoveMakonnen, Marvin Gaye Remixed

Written by


LA’s Daniel.T. continues to impress in 2015.

We’ve covered some of Mr. T’s solo work (he’s also one half of Cosmic Kids) in this space before, but his most recent work might be his best yet.

In addition to his fantastic production work, Daniel.T.’s Chit Chat Records imprint has also put out an excellent 12″ of Brazilian Disco edits that I highly recommend. It features work by Poolside and Fatnotronic and you can stream that in full here.
ILoveMakonnen – Drink More Water 5 [Mixtape]
Last year around this time, ILoveMakonnen was a mostly anonymous bedroom artist.
Then  “Club Goin’ Up On A Tuesday” blew up the internet last summer, he got a Drake co-sign, and now he’s playing sold out shows all over the country and doing cool stuff like receiving gifts from Nardwuar. Yada, yada, yada.
This week, ILoveMakonnen dropped his first new mixtape since his meteoric rise and it is pretty great. It’s the fifth installment of his Drink More Water series and probably his most complete mixtape to date.
Drink More Water 5 is available as a free download and features guest spots from Atlanta heavyweights Migos, Gucci Mane, and Rome Fortune, among others.

Here’s a taste:

Marvin Gaye – “Sexual Healing” (Kygo Remix)

Alright, so I’m a little late on this one, but I thought I’d share it anyway because it’s so good.


Norwegian producer Kygo seems like a guy that’s on the brink of a big breakout 2015. On his remix of “Sexual Healing” he cranks up the tropical vibes to 10.

I feel like I can taste pina colada and smell the beach air when I hear this song.
