If you’re reading this, chances are you’re well aware of the fact that former Jurassic 5 DJ-producer Nu-Mark is an utter delight to encounter. No surprise then that our DJs wanted to ensure that you encountered his latest album “Run For Cover” as much as possible this past week. ICYMI, he also delivered an epic exclusive mix for Travis Holcolmbe’s FREAKS ONLY. Get into it!

Not far behind Nu-Mark are the latest full album releases from James Blake and BadBadNotGood. Looking at the full expanse of the chart, you’ll find that Mon Laferte’s announcement of “1940 Carmen” has caused quite a stir, and you really don’t want to sleep on that forthcoming Ross From Friends record “Tread.”
