“The One and Lonely” by Carter Ace
Released July 2021—Spotify
Carter Ace is another fresh face with a unique genre-melting sound, high energy levels, and captivating creative direction. I love the distorted vocals on the verses, the catchy hook, and harmonies here. I’ll be checking for more of him in 2022.
“Fashion Killer” by Ayra Starr
Released August 2021—Spotify
Ayra Starr drops off a big, chilled out anthem dedicated to her style. A great one for when you’re feeling a fit you’ve put together.
“Out of Time (slowed + reverbed)” by The Weeknd
Released January 2022—Spotify
Dawn FM is fucking incredible. From the Jim Carey hosted radio concept to the glistening production, I’ve had this on repeat since it released. This city pop sampling track is a standout for me, and I especially enjoy this “slowed and reverb” version (the Gen Z evolution of “chopped and screwed”). Invite my to a dinner party in the next 2 months and I will stand on your furniture and belt this, free of charge.
Carter Ace was new to me. Such a great track!
Yes! Excellent picks Arjun.
